 OLAFis a darling SEAL POINT SIAMESE KITTEN.  He is around 4 months old,  neutered and has his claws. He has an easy, chocolate and black coat and mischievous blue eyes.  Named after the character in the movie “Frozen”,  Olaf was found wandering the streets of Chicago in nearly the same condition.  Fortunately this happy little guy perked right up and is now looking for his FURREVER Home with you! His foster mom reports that Olaf is a typical Siamese kitten; VERY busy, always on the move and everything is a game! He is quite affectionate, friendly and has a wonderful purr that turns on at just about anything. He is good about being picked up and held and loves to curl up with family members at night.  He is fine with other pets and really would need another young cat as a companion or he might otherwise be too bored. Olaf might be too much for young children as he can get overstimulated and then mouthy, which is common in kittens, but older cat-experienced kids would be fine.  Wonderful kitten! What are you waiting for? :) Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN WAUKESHA, WI.




BORIS…is a handsome BLACK AMERICAN SHORTHAIR. He is 3 years old, neutered and has his claws. He just had a dental cleaning and is ready to rock and roll home with you! He weighs a solid 12 pounds and has a plush, bunny-soft ebony coat, round little face and luminous gold eyes. Boris came to us from a local shelter with no history.  He has been doing well in foster care and though he starts off a bit shy, as soon as he feels comfortable  all he wants is pets and head bumps! :)  Boris would be fine with respectful children and other cats given  slow introductions. A dog that would ignore him would be ok as well. He’s a very loving cat who is moderately playful, quiet and just wonderful! We NEVER see this very special breed in rescue, so he is unique indeed! Adoption Fee $150. FOSTERED IN MADISON AT EAST TOWNE PET CLINIC, WHICH GENEROUSLY DONATES SPACE FOR US TO SHOW OUR CATS. BORIS CAN BE SEEN ANY TIME DURING OPEN HOURS.





APPLICATION PENDING a handsome SEAL POINT RAGDOLL MIX. He is around 1 year old, neutered and has his claws. He has beautiful turquoise blue eyes and a long coat in chocolates and cream. Oscar ended up at a Chicago shelter when he fell through the ceiling of one of the shelter’s conference rooms during a meeting! This fellow sure knows how to make a grand entrance. :) Who knows if he’d been in a cage at the shelter and had escaped, or if someone had dumped him outside after hours and he crawled into the ductwork of the building for warmth. When his foster mom brought him home, Oscar was rolling around exposing his belly so much that she worried he’d broken his spine during the fall… but no, this guy is just a huge love! He is an affectionate and quiet cat who would do well in most homes. He was a bit matted after living in the shelter’s ductwork for who knows how long, but his mats were trimmed off and his hair will grow back! He is great with other cats and could probably live with a dog who would ignore him. He would be fine with kids. Now that he’s in foster care he has NO DESIRE TO EXPLORE DUCTWORK! :)  Please consider giving this friendly guy a chance at a better life!  Mixed Breed Adoption Fee $125. FOSTERED IN RIVER FOREST, IL.








MAE WEST…is a gorgeous BLUE MAINE COON. She is 12 years old, spayed and has her claws.  She is a BIG girl, as true Maine Coons tend to be, and is around 20 pounds with a beautiful gray-cloud colored coat and hints of white throughout. Mae lived with the same people all of her life and took it very hard when they brought her to rescue because they felt they were traveling too much to take care of her.  She was severely depressed and upset because her people and her world were gone and it was sad to see a magnificent cat like this in such distress. Fortunately her kind foster folks were able to pull her through and Mae should settle well in her next permanent home.  She was well cared for  in her previous home and is good about having her lovely coat brushed. She is quiet, calm. affectionate and would prefer to be the resident couch potato kitty, hanging out with her person to watch tv and not asking for much more than a pat and a kind word.  Mae lived as an only cat her whole life but in foster care has successfully lived with other mellow roommates that kept to themselves.  She would be an excellent companion for an older person or folks looking for a beautiful non-demanding companion to hang around with! She is very healthy (her teeth are amazing!) and has a LOT more years of love to give! Mature Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.







PATSY (top) and GINGER are two adorable FLAME POINT TONKINESE  SISTERS.  They are around 1 year old, spayed and have their claws.  They each weigh between 6 and 7 pounds and have luxious, bunny-soft short coats in white and gold and luminous light blue eyes.  Patsy and Ginger came from a classic hoarding situation. Their owner is mentally ill and in jail and the two cats plus several others were living in a filthy home with floor to ceiling piles of garbage and newspapers. Whatever litter boxes were available hadn’t been changed in 5 years.  When they came to rescue they were crawling with fleas and terrified.  But despite all of  that , Patsy and Ginger have settled into foster care and the joys of CLEAN litter boxes (WHICH THEY USE 100%! :) quite well and are now looking for their Furever Homes.  Both girls start off very shy with new people and situations, but as you can see in their video below, they are friendly, happy little girls and Ginger is now reaching up her arms for attention and petting! They are only getting better in time as they learn what a normal home is supposed to be like and they are young enough so their full potential  is boundless!  These girls are NOT bonded and DO NOT have to go home together, though if someone would like a ready pair they would be great together.  The best homes would be cat experienced, patient, quiet and willing to give these little sweethearts the kind of home(s) they never had.  Adult home(s) with no dogs is required.  The girls are fine with other non-dominant cats (remember they lived with a bunch of them) so other kitties in the home(s) would be fine.  Adoption Fee $175 each or $300 for the pair. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.







OLIVER…is a handsome  BLACK PERSIAN MIX. He is around 7 years old, neutered and has his claws. He is a structurally BIG boy at around 16 pounds and has striking bright yellow eyes. Oliver was left at a Chicago shelter after living for years in what appeared to be a hoarding situation. His thick, long, silky fur was matted in balls the size of oranges so he had to be shaved into a cute lion’s cut. Oliver is a friendly guy who just wants to be loved. His foster mom reports that it is hard to take a picture of him because he always has to be on her lap! He is playful, very loving, and gentle – he can be shy in new situations, but he warms up quickly.  Oliver is a bit overweight and his foster mom has been keeping him active with play to help him lose his love handles. He’s okay with other cats (he lived with them in his prior home) and would be fine with older respectful kids. He has probably never been around dogs but would maybe be okay with a dog who would ignore him. Please consider giving this big hunk o’ love a chance to have the happy forever home that he deserves!  Mixed Breed Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED IN RIVER FOREST, IL.



 KITTY…is a beautiful SEAL POINT SNOWSHOE SIAMESE. . She’s between 1 and 2 years old, spayed and front declawed.  She weighs around 7 pounds and has gorgeous chocolate and white markings and bright blue eyes.  Poor kitty has been through a number of homes in her short life…mostly because the homes she had were not committed to keeping an animal for its natural life.  She wound up on Craig’s List, just waiting for something bad to happen to her. Fortunately she was spotted by one of our foster homes and found herself in the safety of SPCR and is now waiting for her permanent home! Kitty starts off shy with new people and new situations, but given what has happened to her, this is to be expected. Once she settles in she is very sweet, loving and devoted companion. She likes to be near her people, not on them.  She is fine with other cats, 100% with her litter box and is easy-going and quiet.  She would do best in a  calm, adult home with no small kids or dogs.  Adoption Fee $150. FOSTERED IN MANITOWOC, WI.



Our foster family is keeping us!

ALLIE (top) and JJ…are a loving pair of kitties that need a good home together! Allie is a 4 year old purebred PLATINUM MINK TONKINESE. She is  spayed and has her claws. She weighs a slim 7 pounds with tiny  paws and huge light turquoise eyes.  Her buddy, JJ, is a handsome BROWN TABBY AND WHITE DOMESTIC SHORTHAIR.  He is 9 years old, neutered and has his claws.  Both cats come from a home where they were well cared for, fully vetted and loved, but a move forced them into rescue.  Allie is extremely affectionate, playful, curious, and somewhat vocal.  She loves to be held on your shoulders and slept under the covers with her people.  JJ is a very mellow boy who is quiet, tolerant of other animals and gets along great with everyone. He is highly affectionate and is a great lap kitty. JJ has been with Allie since Allie was a kitten and she adores him.  She is a sensitive cat who needs a quiet adult home with no small kids or dogs.  Because of the affection these two have for each other, they must go home together. They would be an excellent pair for a single person or retired couple who would love a pair of gorgeous lap cats.  Adoption fee for the pair $200. FOSTERED IN JANESVILLE, WI. 





DIMITRY…is a sweet, gentle SEAL POINT SIAMESE who is 9 years old, neutered and front-paw declawed. He has dreamy blue eyes and a gorgeous coat in shades of cream and brown with classic sable points. Dimitry just had a dental and full blood work, which indicated he is a healthy cat indeed, and his foster mom thinks he’s perfect! He was left in a shelter in downstate Illinois, so we don’t know much about him. The shelter said that he has lived with other cats before, so another calm cat would probably be fine given proper introductions—lively kittens would be too much for this tender soul. Dimitry is a little shy at first, but he absolutely LOVES people and warms up quickly. He spends his days in his foster room looking out the window and dreaming of the day when he’ll have a forever home and family to call his own. Dimitry’s best home would be a quiet adult home. Know an older person longing for a lap cat? HERE HE IS!  Older, respectful kids would be fine, as would a dog that wouldn’t chase or bark at him. Who’s going to be the lucky one to take this special guy home? Mature Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.



BEAR…is a stunning SEAL POINT SIAMESE MIX. He is 5 years old, neutered and has his claws. He weighs around 10 pounds and has soft dark chocolate fur, even darker seal point markings, and truly mesmerizing pale blue eyes! He is excellent with a scratching post, especially the low to the ground variety. He may be labeled as a “mix,” but his personality is pure Siamese. He’s very inquisitive, extremely intelligent, and loves a good challenge. His favorite past times are to find places up high and check out his surroundings and be with his person. He will start off as aloof until you’ve earned his trust (and this will take some time), and then he will be a constant companion. He will come when called, but you won’t really need to as chances are he’ll be right there anyway. He’ll join your lap for hours at a time…when he’s ready to.  His favorite hot spot is next to the computer so you can give him attention AND he gets to watch fun things happen on the screen. Bear is always on the prowl for something to keep him occupied. He’s not keen on many toys, but does have an insane infatuation for playing with Q-Tips. If he’s bored or can’t locate you, than the Siamese in him lets you know it, but otherwise he’s not much of a talker. He prefers to sleep alone, but does like a spot in the room where he can just keep an eye on you. He gets along fine with confident cats and would also be okay as an only cat with someone around for chunks of time. But he’s a confident fella who has no patience for the meek or timid and has decided they won’t be tolerated. He’s been fine around  kids. Little ones are too much for him as he was tormented by them in another life. He would probably be good with a canine companion. Mixed Breed Adoption Fee $100. FOSTERED IN RACINE,WI.


CHARLIE BROWN…is an adorable BURMESE/HAVANA BROWN MIX.  He is estimated to be about a year old.  He is neutered and has his claws.  He weighs around 10 pounds and has a shiny chocolate coat with gorgeous bright gold eyes.  Charlie was picked up as a stray and brought to a local shelter.  He has a snaggle tooth that the vet believes may have been caused by a broken jaw sometime in his past but everything is healed and he is doing just fine. Just adds to his character! :)  Charlie ADORES people.  He is very loving and affectionate towards them and in fact  he loves them so much that he would prefer not to share them with another animal.  He does not like dogs and can be pushy with other cats. Charlie is a lively, curious and fun boy who can go from athletic flying leaps to naptime snuggles in a heartbeat.  He would be great with older respectful children, especially ones who know how to wield a fishing pole toy! :)   Mixed Breed Adoption Fee $125. FOSTERED IN MAZOMANIE, WI.




APPLICATION PENDING an adorable LYNX POINT HIMALAYAN. She’s estimated around 1 year old, is spayed and has her claws. She weighs a petite 6 pounds. Maggie has a beautiful mocha shaded coat, captivating crystal blue eyes and an adorable peach-colored nose. Maggie was found as a stray hiding in a garage in central Illinois during one of the harshest winters on record. A kind lady took her in, nursed her back to health and whisked her off to rescue. Maggie has really thrived in foster care! She is a sweet girl who loves to be with her foster family. She adores ear scratches and tummy rubs and is becoming quite the lap cat! But Maggie does not do well around small children, and she is easily frightened. Once she gets used to being safe, warm and fed, she will continue to blossom. But her best home would be a quiet adult home or one with older, respectful kids where she can spend her days curled up in a warm sunbeam looking out the window. She will take a little patience as she adjusts to the change of a new home, but once she’s sure she’s safe, she will reward you with unlimited love and affection. Given proper introductions, Maggie would probably do fine around one or two other adult cats who would ignore her. Loud or energetic dogs would really be too much for this gentle soul. If you’re looking for a sweet, affectionate kitty—look no further. Maggie is your girl! Adoption Fee $250. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.




SPENCER…is a handsome SILVER PERSIAN.  He is around 3 years old, neutered and has his claws. He weighs a solid 10 pounds (but is not overweight) and has a lovely full, medium care coat in white and silver and bright goldish green eyes.  Spencer came to us from a shelter where he was brought as a stray. He was very upset and shy at first, but his caring foster folks have put in a lot of time and love into Spencer and really brought him out of his shell. :) He is a calm, somewhat timid, loving little boy who truly enjoys combing and brushing (always a plus!) uses his scratching post and litter boxes 100% and ready for a game of  whatever his folks have in mind.  He has roomed with other foster cats and gets along fine with those that do not bully or overwhelm him.  Other calm, easy-going cats are not a problem. He would do best in a quiet, adult home with no dogs or small kids. Spencer is listed as Special Needs because he has a mild case of dry eye, meaning his new people are going to have to be sure to take him in for regular vet checks to make sure his eyes are doing fine. Currently he is doing very well and has no issues with seeing or getting around. Special Needs Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.






MAGIC…is a gorgeous BLACK PERSIAN. He is around 10  years old, neutered and front declawed. He weighs a solid 8 pounds and has a medium care, ebody coat, easy-care “doll” face and bright gold eyes.  Magic was adopted from us a number of years ago by a very loving owner who took top-notch care of him.  However a sudden onset of bad health made her contact us  as she could no longer care for Magic, and she knew we would find him as excellent a home as she provided.  Magic is a wonderful cat! He is adaptable, easy-going and affectionate…just as you would expect for most Persians!   He is a lap sitter and a quiet watcher of birds on a sunny window.  He is fine with other cats and has lived with dogs.  The best home for Magic would be quiet (he has not lived with kids of any age, though he’s so easy-going he might be fine with older kids) and committed to the upkeep of a long-haired pet. He would be a good choice for someone new to the breed as well. Magic just had his teeth cleaned and blood work done which indicated he is in VERY good health! He could have another decade of love to give!  Mature Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED AT PURRTOSA CAT BOUTIQUE IN WAUWATOSA, WI, WHICH GENEROUSLY DONATES SPACE FOR US TO SHOW OUR CATS. MAGIC CAN BE VISITED ANY TIME DURING OPEN HOURS.



LUCY…is a darling BLUE AND WHITE BICOLOR BRITISH SHORTHAIR. She is around 9 years old, spayed and has her claws. Lucy was adopted from us several years ago by folks who took excellent care of her and loved her very much, but she was not adored by other cats in the household and was being bullied constantly. It was felt she would do better in a household with no or other calm cats. Lucy is gorgeous! She is a RARE BREED, with a plush, bunny-soft coat and bright gold eyes and rounded form.  She is quiet and  a bit timid at first with new people and situations, but is a very sweet girl who likes to be by (but not on) her people. Lucy would do best in a quiet adult home with no dogs or small kids.  She is listed as Special Needs because she has food allergies and needs to eat Blue Wilderness Duck Formula in order to do her best. This can be found in most Petco/Petsmarts.  Special Needs Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.







LIZZIE (top) AND MINNIE…two tiny SEAL POINT SNOWSHOE SIAMESE.  They are presumed to be mom (Minnie) and daughter (Lizzy). Minnie is about 4 years old, spayed and has her claws. Lizzy is about 1 year old, spayed and has her claws. They are both little girls, weighing about 5 pounds each. Minnie and Lizzy have not had a very nice life up until now. They came from a hoarding situation and were not very well socialized when they came into the shelter where we found them. However with the love and care that foster care can provide, they have really come out of their shells and are doing great!  Lizzy is a very happy, busy girl who is very playful and would LOVE another young playmate to play with.  She trills all the while she is on the move! Minnie takes a bit longer to accept your love and you will have to be patient and understanding with her, but while you are waiting for Minnie to come around, Lizzy is very happy to fill in! Once she gets comfortable with you, she can’t get enough petting and attention. They both REALLY LIKE other cats and really perk up when other cats enter their world, but they would be easily bullied, so only non-dominant cats allowed. They could really learn from a well-adjusted cat. Both girls are also comfortable with a gentle dog. Both girls LOVE their cat tree, so that is also HIGHLY recommended for them. This mother/daughter pair is quite bonded so we are looking to place them together. They need a loving, cat-experienced, patient home but we’re confident it’s out there somewhere. Adoption fee for the pair $200. FOSTERED IN GREEN BAY, WI





TOMMY…is a gorgeous  SEAL POINT AND WHITE BALINESE. He is barely 1 year old, neutered and has his claws. He is a slim 6 pounds and has a very easy, silky, medium-length coat in chocolates and white, and bright blue eyes. Tommy came to us along with 10 other cats from a horrendous hoarding situation in Indiana. He was living with 50 other cats and a number of dogs in extremely filthy conditions. He was underweight and dehydrated when he came in, but Tommy has picked up steam in the weeks he has been in foster care and is doing very well. At some point in his young life he was neutered at a clinic that vets feral cats (even though he is NOT feral) and they cut the tip of his ear off at the same time. It just gives him character. :)  As you can see by his video below, Tommy is a VERY affectionate, loving cat who gets along FABULOUSLY with other cats (which is not surprising given his background). However he starts off extremely timid with new people and situations and is going to need a home committed to allowing him to get used to things at his own pace. What you see in his video is exactly how he is when he settles in, but he will be extremely skittish initially. Tommy needs a quiet, loving, cat-experienced home with folks who understand what he has been through. Another cat or two he can pal around with would be fantastic and probably help him come out of his shell faster. He is quite playful and active and just loving, joyful personality. :)  An adult home with no dogs or kids will be preferred. Adoption Fee $150. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.








AMARA…is a sparkling CALIFORNIA SPANGLED CAT.  She 1 TO 2 years old,  spayed and has her claws. She weighs around 7 pounds. Described as “a dog in a cat’s body” who is a “big puddle of love,” Amara was adopted from SPCR a month ago but was left at a local shelter rather than being returned directly to us due to conflicts with other cats in the household.  Amara’s breed is a cross of breeds which include the Abyssinian, American Shorthair and British Shorthair.  She is a big fan of snuggling, and will  camp out in your lap or on your chest, nuzzling your hand or your face. Her purr is loud and can be heard a room or two away. She is extremely affectionate and craves interaction with humans.  Amara loves her own pillow at bedtime but will gladly share, purring her person to sleep. Amara is an active girl and loves a good game of wand or feather chase.  She adores a good high climbing post and will not hesitate to go the highest place she can find - all the better to monitor the comings and goings of her family. She will come when called, especially if some loving is involved! :) .  This gorgeous kitty  has been around other cats and will most likely adapt to any other animals easily given a proper introduction period.  She is even great with young children; she is patient with their clumsy petting and willing to tolerate gentle tail tugs.  Because of her breed, Amara startles very easily, but quickly returns for human interaction. She has excellent litter box skills and always uses her scratching posts. With eyes that “will penetrate your soul,” Amara just wants to love and be loved by the members of her forever family.  If you welcome Amara into your household, you’ll be surprised by her grooming skills as she has a humorous tendency to groom the people around her! :)  Adoption Fee $150.  FOSTERED IN MANITOWOC, WI.






LEAH……is a very affectionate SEAL POINT SIAMESE CAT.  She is 8 years young,  spayed and has her claws. She has beautiful blue eyes, sable coat and is pleasingly plump at around 11 pounds. She was surrendered by her owner’s brother, who happens to be a vet, because the owner was not competent to care for her any longer.  Leah is fully vetted (by the brother) and recently had blood work done.  She is in very good shape, though losing a pound or two would be beneficial.  Leah is good with loud kids, other cats and appears unfazed by the foster family’s huge barking dog.  She is the perfect family cat. Bring it all on, she doesn’t care!  She let the foster mom take flash photography 4 inches from her face! She is as close to  bomb proof as you can get with a Siamese.  Leah is super loving but, as an older lady, not very active. She prefers to snuggle up with a human, purr, and make biscuits.  She is not very chatty and only says a few words in greeting.  She can be left alone, but will exuberantly greet you when you return with head and ankle bumps.   If you are looking for a tolerant Siamese who will immediately love you with all her heart, then consider Leah! Mature Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED IN OAK PARK, IL.






LILLY…is an gorgeous  BROWN TABBY (coloration) PERSIAN. She is around 6 years old, spayed and has her claws.  She weighs between 7 and 8 pounds and has a medium-care silky coat in beautiful autumnal shades accented with a white muzzle and brilliant gold eyes.  Lilly came to us from owners in Michigan who were unable to keep her or her other 2 Persian roommates due to financial issues. They were so concerned for their cats’ welfare that they drove 7 hours one way to get these kitties to us where they knew they would be safe and well cared for.  Lilly is a LOVELY girl who is ready to go on to her FurrEver home! She is calm, quiet and friendly and gets along very well with other non-dominant cats that will not beat up on her. She has been around dogs and would probably be ok with respectful kids. She would be a good “starter” Persian for someone new to the breed because her coat is not difficult, she likes to be brushed and her face is beautiful and no-maintenance. We can’t say enough about this sweetheart! Adoption fee $175. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.





A Place for “Regular” Cats to Find Good Homes Too!



PORTIA…is a friendly BROWN TABBY AND WHITE DOMESTIC SHORTHAIR. She is 1 year old, spayed, and has her claws.  She is a petite 7 pounds and has a beautiful short, easy coat in browns and white, and bright greenish-gold eyes.  Portia was a stray into a Chicago shelter and just happened to slip into our program because she was a staff favorite and had nowhere else to go with her time running out. Her foster mom reports that she LOVES other cats and can usually be found playing and romping around with others. She is also fine with dogs that do not chase and bark at her.  She is shy with new people and environments, but once she settles in is loving, gentle and just a lovely little cat. She would be a perfect young companion kitty for another busy cat that desperately needs a buddy.  Mixed Breed Adoption Fee $50. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.
