or  www.IGIVE.ORG




 KUZCO…is a sleek SEAL POINT SNOWSHOE SIAMESE KITTEN.  He is around 7 months old, neutered, and has his claws He weighs around 8 pounds.   He has chocolate seal point markings, the cutest white paws and pale blue eyes. He looks full grown, but from the size of his paws he might have some growing left to do. Kuzco was left at a Chicago shelter because his former owners were moving.  He is a sensitive soul and was extremely distressed by this turn of events.  Kuzco starts off defensive with new people and new situations, but warms up very quickly.  His former owners do not appear to have socialized him well, but he is very intelligent and a fast learner.  Since he is in his teenage years, Kuzco will need a FurrEver home committed to continued socialization and helping him maintain the good manners he has learned.  He has been taught to use a cardboard scratcher and will need one in his new home.  He is quite active, loves to play, and is very inquisitive.  He is also very affectionate, loves pets and will climb into laps.  He may be a lap cat, but he hasn’t quite figured out what to do with laps yet due to his past…but he’s still a baby! :)  Kuzco likes children, but would do best with older respectful children as he is still young enough to be quickly overstimulated.  Kitten Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN OAK PARK, IL. 


LILLY (top) and ROSE…are two lovely CALICO POINT SIAMESE KITTENS. They are 10 months old,  petite (5 pounds each), spayed and have their claws. These girls were two of 10 cats we received from a particularly awful hoarding situation in Indiana and they have come a LONG way in their loving foster home. Their foster mom describes, “ First off, they are both very good with cats.  I did have one of my cats in to visit to see how they would be with a cat other than each other.  They both were great.  I also dog tested them and they are very curious, not a sign of fear at all.  They are quite active, chasing one another around, playing with toys and laser pointers, anything they can get into.  I see no problems with children.  When they came to me, they were petrified.  They both hid and didn’t even want me to look at them.  Rose was the first to start to come out of her shell.  Liliy took a bit longer.  However, now they are both greeting me at the door, following me around, on the computer when I am trying to work.  They have come such a long way from where they were before.  I hold them but for short amounts of time.  They are not afraid of me, just want to do their own thing.  I believe that they will both continue to adapt to that as well.  It gets better every day.  They are perfect with their litter boxes and scratching posts.”  These sisters are very attached to each other and we would like them to go out together.  Kitten Adoption Fee for the pair $300.  FOSTERED IN DEPERE, WI.

RUBICON…is a stunning SEAL POINT MITTED RAGDOLL. He is 9 years old, neutered and front declawed and weighs a solid 15 pounds. This guy MAY be THE MOST HANDSOME Ragdoll we have seen in rescue in a very long time! These pictures and video don’t begin to do this gorgeous guy justice, and he’s every bit as NICE as he is beautiful! Rubicon came into rescue with his sister from a home where they were extremely well cared for and loved. However family issues made it impossible for them to stay but fortunately SPCR was there for them! Rubicon lived with a dog and kids, though he would do best with older ones. He is extremely personable, friendly, and would probably be fine with other cats in the household providing he was introduced slowly.  His coat is plush and medium-length and his eyes are electric blue…but it’s the blaze of white down his forehead that really catches your attention! Rubicon is easy-going, moderately active and would probably do well in most households. COME GET THIS GUY BEFORE HE IS GONE! Mature Adoption Fee $125. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.

WATCH RUBICON ON YOUTUBE a spunky FLAME POINT SIAMESE.  She is spayed, has her claws, weighs about 6.5 pounds and has bright blue eyes.  She is just under a year old and is silly kitten.  She loves to play and has a spicy personality–just enough sass to be interesting and plenty of lovin’ to warm your heart.  She along with Chacho, Chili and Pickles came from a hoarding situation that had dozens of cats living in very poor conditions.  She was one of the lucky 10 to come to SPCR!  With proper intros, ‘Rika can live with other kitties, probably dogs and older kids.  Her best buddy right now is Chili (see his listing below).  She loves wand toys, scratching posts and, well, she loves LIFE.  Adoption Fee $150.   FOSTERED IN OSHKOSH, WI.



SPECIAL NEEDS a loving, super sweet FLAME POINT BALINESE.  He is neutered, has his claws, weighs about 7 pounds and is 3 years old.  His coat is as soft as a bunny.  He has light blue eyes that look at you with all the love in the world.  At his age, he has tons of energy and kitten hijinx but is old enough to recognize and take advantage of a warm lap when he sees one.  He is super easy going and gets along with just about everyone.  Chili came from a hoarding situation living with dozens of cats.  SPCR took in about 10 of them and he was one of the lucky ones.  This guy will play for hours and can’t wait to get your attention.  During the extensive vetting that SPCR provides, it was discovered that Chili is FIV+.  It is not uncommon for shelters and rescues to euthanize FIV kitties primarily because of lack of understanding of the virus and that they are often overlooked by adopters.  However, there really is NO REASON to do so.  FIV+ kitties live long, healthy, NORMAL lives.  It is not contagious by normal contact, grooming, sharing food and water bowls or litter boxes.  Primary transmission is from super deep bite wounds from the infected cat.  (Keep in mind we took 10 cats from this environment and he was the only one that tested positive.)  Chili does great with other cats, would likely be cool with dogs (dogs cannot get FIV) and would do fine with young children.  Before you dismiss him, please do your homework on FIV.  Of course, he can be an only kitty or live with other FIV kitties as well.  Regular vet visits, an indoor environment, a healthy diet and love will give Chili every opportunity to live a normal life.  Special Needs Adoption Fee $50.  FOSTERED IN OSHKOSH, WI.





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.




GARFIELD..…is a charming RED AND WHITE BICOLOR PERSIAN. He is around 6 years old, neutered and 4-paw declawed. He weighs around 10 pounds and has a cottony, long coat and big golden eyes. Garfield ended up in a Chicago shelter after he was abandoned at a hotel with FIGARO (see below). Even though people have certainly let him down in the past, this big happy guy is definitely willing to give us humans a second chance! His foster mom reports that he was comfortable in foster care as soon as he stepped out of the carrier, and made himself right at home sprawled out in the middle of the room with a catnip toy. He loves playing and eating treats, and generally wants to be a part of whatever’s going on. He is good with other cats, and though he probably hasn’t been around other dogs, he is likely confident enough to be around a dog who wouldn’t harass him. He would be fine with kids. He has moderate eye drainage, and a very long and thick coat, so a home that is experienced with a high maintenance cat  WILL BE PREFERRED. His coat was matted and the mats were shaved off in spots, but it will grow back soon and he certainly has enough fluff left to make up for it. COME GET HIM BEFORE HE’S GONE!  Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN RIVER FOREST, IL





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.




CHACO…is a dashing SEAL POINT SNOWSHOE SIAMESE KITTEN.  He is neutered, has his claws and currently weighs about 5 pounds (yes, he’s still growing). He has a very pretty coat that is mostly white with variations of seal coloring along with bright blue eyes.  This leggy, handsome guy is about 6 months old and a ball of energy.  He dashes, prances and races everywhere always stopping to rub and give head bumps.  He loves, loves, loves attention.  Chacho came to SPCR along with about 9 other cats from a hoarding situation where there were dozens to be found.  He has settled into foster care with his sister Pickles and buddies Chili and ‘Rika.  Chacho is inquisitive, loves just about any toy and all people.  He would likely do fine with dogs and older kids.  Given his energy, he should have a kitty playmate to keep him occupied and out of trouble.  ;-)   Kitten Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN OSHKOSH, WI.

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. a handsome BLACK AND WHITE TUXEDO PERSIAN. He is around 6 years old, neutered and has his claws. He weighs around 7 pounds and has a silky, medium care coat. He has a beautiful, easy-care doll face and striking pumpkin-colored eyes. He just had his teeth cleaned and the vet said he is in very good health! Figaro ended up in a Chicago shelter after he was abandoned at a hotel with GARFIELD (see above). He was a bit shy when he first came into foster care, which is understandable given the ordeal that he’d been through. But his foster mom reports that after he realized that he was safe, Figaro turned on the love and the charm! He is a quiet, affectionate cat who likes to be brushed and petted. He loves catnip toys and observing the world from a cat condo or couch cushion. He is good with other cats, and he has probably never been around dogs. He is a quiet, gentle cat and would probably prefer a quiet home. His coat was a bit matted and the mats were shaved off in spots, but hair grows back! Please consider giving Figaro the loving forever home that he deserves!  Adoption Fee $175. FOSTERED IN RIVER FOREST, IL.




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.

WATCH CB ON YOUTUBE an adorable CALICO POINT SNOWSHOE SIAMESE KITTEN.  She is spayed, has her claws and weighs about 4.5 pounds (and is growing).  This little beauty queen has long, lanky legs and a narrow head and face that accentuate her brilliant blue eyes.  Pickles is about 6 months old and has some growing to do, but she will always be petite. She’s got 4 white mittens, splotches of orange, white and seal and a cute, dark freckle on her nose.  She is very playful and inquisitive and will skitter after balls and her coil toys for hours and loves to be loved on.  Pickles came from a hoarding situation that had dozens of cats.  About 10 of them came to SPCR.  She is Chacho’s sister and his buddy too.  She gets along great with other cats, probably dogs and older kids.  Kitten Adoptin Fee $200. FOSTERED IN OSHKOSH, 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.






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.


FRANK…is a handsome CHOCOLATE POINT SIAMESE.  He is 3 years old, neutered, has his claws and weighs around nine pounds. Frank has a beautiful light mocha coat with classic chocolate points and captivating aqua blue eyes.Frank came to us as a stray when his family apparently moved and left him behind. This sweet boy braved the recent record cold winter with the help of a kind neighbor lady who fed him. But he’s safe in foster care now and what a doll he is! Frank loves, loves, loves people, head butts, tummy rubs and lounging on laps. If is has to do with people and attention, Frank is all about it. He’s great with being brushed and having his nails trimmed–after all, that’s just more attention! Frank is very playful and gets the zoomies from time to time. He would love a family with respectful kids to call his own. With proper introductions, he would probably be fine with other cats and dogs who would ignore him. He is just a purrring love bug. If you’re looking for an awesome family cat or someone to keep you company and love you forever, look no further! Frank is your guy!  Adoption Fee $150. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL..




MURPHY…is a sweet SHADED SILVER PERSIAN with big emerald green eyes and a distinguished snaggle tooth. :) He is about three years old, neutered, has his claws and weighs around 7 pounds. He is currently shaved into a very short lion cut because the little man was so dirty and badly matted. Murphy came to us as a stray from animal control, but he is very relieved to be in foster care. Murphy is a quiet and happy little man. He is moderately active. He likes to be close to his people and will follow them around and sleep with them on the bed. He purrs and circles and rubs. He’s perfect in the litter box. He is fine around gentle dogs, other easy-going kitties, and older respectful kids. Murphy will have a beautiful, full, cottony coat when it comes in and it will require regular brushing and maintenance so someone familiar with the upkeep of  this breed WILL be preferred. Murphy is a beautiful soul and will make some lucky home very happy! :) Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN GREEN BAY, 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.
