JENNY… is an adorable GRAY TABBY AND WHITE MANX KITTEN. She is 4 months old, spayed and has all her claws. She came from a breeder that retired, but she has been in foster care for as long as she can probably remember. She came with her father (check out Lt. Dan on the website!). Jenny gets along well with other cats and is wary of dogs, but not afraid. She’s very curious, loves to play but will definitely watch and learn before she jumps into something new (loud noises scare her). However, once she’s comfortable, she’s a crazy, active kitten who really LOVES playing on the iPad! She is great at helping you with Candy Crush! She plays hard, however, when she’s done playing she will come find you to sleep at your feet or on your lap — wherever you want her, but close to you is her preference. She’s young and adaptable and would do well in probably any sort of home (pets, no pets, kids or no kids). And if you’re looking for 2 kitties, please consider her father, Lt. Dan (yes, we could do an adoption fee deal for the pair! :) Kitten Adoption Fee: $200. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL




KOKO… is a stunning 3 year old WHITE PERSIAN FROM EGYPT. He is neutered and has his claws. He has a gorgeous long, soft white coat with big blue eyes. He is deaf but this doesn’t affect him in the slightest. Koko came to SPCR all the way from Cairo, Egypt! He was found on the street in Cairo – Persians are popular pets who are sold as kittens in pet shops in Egypt, and they often end up on the street when their owners no longer want them. He was taken in by an animal rescuer in Egypt and was then transported to the US so that SPCR could help him find a forever home. Koko is an intelligent, confident boy who will bring his new home years of love. He enjoys relaxing on the couch, playing with toys and arranging them near his food bowl, and exploring his foster room. He sometimes sounds like he’s growling when you’re petting him – it would be better if he went to a cat-experienced home so that they can read his body signals. He is a very sweet boy and you can hear his happy growl/meow in the video. Persians from Egypt are bred with a bit longer noses, which is better for their breathing and results in less eye drainage. Koko would be fine as an only cat – he is dominant with male cats so should not go to a home with males. One or two female cats would probably be okay. He would probably be okay with a dog and older kids (not toddlers). Please consider giving this handsome guy the forever home that he deserves! Adoption Fee $250. FOSTERED IN RIVER FOREST, IL.WATCH KOKO ON  YOUTUBE


Toki 2


TOKI… is a darling 10-year old MITTED SNOWSHOE SIAMESE with charming blue eyes. She’s spayed, front-paw declawed and wears a classic sable snowshoe coat with adorable mittens on all four paws. Toki has a white spot on the very tip of her tail as if it has been dipped in a paint bucket! Have you seen a cuter face? Toki came into foster care a few months ago after her owner adopted a dog who frightened Toki. When she arrived, Toki weighed a whopping 16 pounds. The poor girl was so heavy she couldn’t keep herself clean. Her foster family put her on a veterinarian-prescribed diet. After these many weeks, she weighs around 13 pounds–still heavier than ideal, but Toki is now slender enough to keep herself clean and delicate-smelling like any self-respecting girl would want. The best part about Toki? She’s as sweet as spun sugar. This girl is a total doll who loves to be petted and fussed over. Toki deserves a loving family who will adore her and help her continue her journey to a healthy weight. She has a gentle, sweet, submissive but super-friendly personality, welcoming anyone who comes to visit. Toki would love a family with respectful kids who would lavish her with attention. Although she’s briefly roomed with other cats, she’s been kept solitary in foster care for the most part due to her diet restrictions. Her foster family feels Toki would do fine with other cats given proper slow introductions. And of course, she needs to be on a regular feeding schedule, not free fed nor given access to others’ food. Toki is listed as special needs simply because she must continue her weight loss journey. Her food is available at most veterinary offices and the price is comparable to other high-quality cat food choices. Do you have room in heart for this sweet one? Special Needs Adoption Fee $50. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.



KONA…is an affectionate FLAME POINT HIMALAYAN. She’s four years old, spayed and has her claws. What a sweetheart this little girl is! She has a silky white coat with color points of apricot, beautiful blue eyes, and cute little chubby cheeks. You’ll see on her video that she is sporting a bit of a ‘baboon’ butt :) right now, because she was spot shaved to remove some very tight mats. But don’t worry, fur grows and Kona loves her new pain-free hair style! Kona came into rescue from a local animal control with no history. She was pleasant, but quiet and listless and didn’t have much of an appetite. Was this her personality? As it turns out, no it wasn’t, and Kona was a very sick girl. During her spay, it was discovered that this poor girl had two VERY LARGE cystic ovaries that were moments from rupturing and an infected uterus. Had she not had the surgery, she would not have lived to see the age of five. This is such a painful condition and so easily preventable by spaying before heat cycles begin! Almost instantly following her life-saving surgery, Kona was back on her feet, purring up a storm, making up for lost time eating, and so happy and affectionate! And this is Kona’s true personality. She is gentle, calm, loving, mildly active, chatty, and a total lap cat who wants to bond with her people. If her foster mom ignores her presence, Kona gives her a gentle tap with her paw and a little trill. She is a bit dominant with other pets and really should be the One and Only for her people to dote on. Older, respectful kids would likely be fine too. Are you the perfect home to share in Kona’s new lease on life? ADOPTION FEE $200. FOSTERED IN GREEN BAY, WI.





LUCY….is a darling BLUE POINT SIAMESE KITTEN.  She is 6 months old, spayed and has her claws. She has an easy, short coat with gorgeous gray and cream Siamese markings, and bright blue eyes. Lucy came from a shelter and we have no history on her, but her foster mom says she is a very friendly, happy little girl who is not talkative and gets along well with other cats.  She is moderately active and playful, not hyper, and enjoys playing and toys. She would be fine with dogs that would not chase or bark at her and respectful older kids that would give her love and attention. Kitten Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.


KIBBY… is a handsome BROWN TABBY MAINE COON MIX. He is around 7 years old, neutered and weighs around 12 pounds. He has a gorgeous, long coat, bright gold eyes. Kibby came to us from a busy shelter after his owner passed away. He was very distressed and had almost completely shut down. With time, patience and a lot of love, Kibby has decided to move forward with life and is ready for a new person or two to love. Kibby was very matted and had to be partially shaved, but his coat is growing back beautifully: full and thick and so soft. He is very good about being combed. Kibby can be a shy at first, but once he warms up, he enjoys laptime and snuggles. He is a darling not-so-little man who make a wonderful companion. Kibby is used to a quiet household and would prefer an adult home without small children or dogs. With proper introductions he could get along with another confident cat who would leave him alone. Mixed Breed Adoption Fee $150. FOSTERED IN MAZOMANIE, WI.



CINDER… is a 2 year old SEAL POINT SIAMESE with mesmerizing blue eyes.  Cinder is spayed, has her claws and is about 10 lbs.  She was dropped off at a shelter as an owner surrender with no history. She came into rescue just terrified, hiding under blankets, hissing, and wouldn’t eat for days.  Wherever she came from must have been horrific for her. However, several weeks later she started to come out of her shell!  Cinder is learning to trust people again and is fine when approached gently. She now loves being pet and doted on, is playful and loves feather toys. She’s moderately talkative and likes to rub against you while being pet. She’ll need to go a quiet, adult only home with patience and understanding of her needs.  No dogs please, but she does fine with the male cats in the foster home.  She is missing the left tip of her ear, meaning that at some point she was taken to a low cost clinic for feral cats and spayed there (they always “tip” the ear when they do that so that people who might see a cat outside knows it is being tended to in a feral colony…however Cinder is NOT feral! :) )  Cinder is a sweet, sweet girl who was starved for love.  Let your home be her furever safe haven!   Adoption Fee $150.  FOSTERED IN DEPERE, WI



ZELDA… is a curious LYNX POINT SIAMESE MIX KITTEN. She is around 10 months old, spayed and has her claws. She has light blue eyes and a marvelous brown spotted coat which is soft and plush. Zelda came to us from a man in Indiana who was moving and who had too many animals. He also did not seem to know very much about her but made vague statements about how she was beaten up by the other cats. Zelda appears quite interested in the foster home’s cats and dog, so we think she would get along well with one other cat who would ignore her and she was slowly introduced. She would be great as an “only kitty” too! She is quite brave and adventurous and would do well with an active family that would allow her to participate but is also willing to hang out and cuddle. She is very affectionate and loves to seek attention. Her future family must enjoy a kitty who likes to talk. Zelda is very chatty and she enjoys relating her concerns with regular meows. Silence is not common around Zelda but she has a sweet, light voice that is very pleasant. ADOPTION FEE $100. FOSTERED IN MANITOWOC, WI.



Lt Dan 2

LIEUTENANT DAN… is a super sweet PUREBRED MANX. He is 2 years old, neutered and has all his claws. He is a big guy at a healthy 10 lbs. and is like a big, ‘ol cuddly, teddy bear. He came to SPCR from a breeder that was retiring. Lt. Dan loves to be petted and will head butt you and burrow in your hand for a good, solid head scratching! He’s is not good with other cats but doesn’t seem to mind his foster family’s respectful dog. His favorite thing to do is sit up high and watch the goings-on in the foster room. He’s still young and enjoys playing with feather and string toys. He also enjoys watching the birds and leaves outside the window. Lt. Dan would do best in a home without other cats and his foster family thinks he would do well with children of any age. He definitely prefers humans to cats! If you’re looking for a lovable guy, Dan is your man! !  Adoption Fee $150.  FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.




CEASY… is a darling CALICO AND WHITE PERSIAN FROM EGYPT. She is around 1 year old, spayed and has her claws. She has beautiful golden eyes and a gorgeous coat with  bright orange, black and white contrasts. This beautiful girl came to us from our rescue partners in Egypt, where she was found on the street. She is a delightful little girl who just wants to be loved. She is just full of love – lots of purrs, butt-raises and rolling around exposing her belly. She is moderately playful and does talk a bit when she wants attention. She loves to chase glitter balls and just loves life generally! She will do well in most homes. Ceasy is great with other cats. Dogs would probably be okay if they are gentle. She would be fine with respectful children. Someone will be very lucky to take this sweet little doll home! Adoption Fee $250. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.





POPTART… is an adorable BLACK EXOTIC SHORTHAIR. She is a little over 1 year old, spayed and front declawed. . Pop Tart wears a bunny-soft coal black coat and looks at the world with wonder through her enormous copper eyes. What a sweet, playful little girl she is; and tiny, too, at only five-and-a-half pounds. Pop Tart came to us from a shelter where she was surrendered by her family who apparently couldn’t care for her anymore. She’s such a love who appreciates neck scratches, tummy rubs and dangly-playthings. Even though her coat is short and her fur is dark, she needs regular combing and eye cleaning to look and feel her adorable best. But that’s okay because she’s really great about daily care. Pop Tart is rooming with others and gets along just fine. But she is still very much a kitten who wants to play and romp. She would appreciate a home with another young feline friend. Older, respectful kids would be great. Have you ever seen a cuter kitty? Put your application in now, because she’ll be spoken for in the wink of an eye!  Adoption Fee $375. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL. 




CALLIE is a gorgeous CALICO PERSIAN FROM EGYPT. She is around 2 years old, spayed and has her claws. She has a long, thick coat in shades of caramel, cream and steel, and beautiful, big golden eyes. Callie was found on the street in Egypt – Persians are popular there and many of them are sold in pet stores when they are kittens but then put out onto the street for various reasons. She was taken in by an animal rescuer in Cairo and was then transported to Chicago so that SPCR could help her find a forever home. She is a VERY loving girl who lives for attention. She adores pets and runs to greet her foster mom at the door of the foster room. During the day, she is content to find a warm spot to sleep and watch the world go by. She enjoys play time, and she is smart and curious. She needs to be an only cat – she needs all of your love for herself! She would probably be okay with a dog. Kids would be fine. Persians from Egypt are bred with a bit longer noses, which is better for their breathing and results in less eye drainage. She will require some brushing but should be pretty low maintenance as far as Persians go – she would be a good cat for someone who is new to the breed. Please consider adopting this wonderful girl! Adoption Fee $250. FOSTERED IN RIVER FOREST, IL.




SIMON… is an awesome SEAL POINT SIAMESE.  He’s five years old, neutered and has his claws. A big boy, Simon tips the scale at 11 pounds. He wears a classic seal point coat in shades of dark chocolate accented with a mocha bib and amazing turquoise eyes. Simon was turned over to an Indiana shelter when his family moved. Who could leave this handsome hunk behind? We don’t understand it, but their loss can be your gain. Simon is as sweet as they come; he’s very friendly and loves to be petted and loved. This buddy is currently rooming with another gentle cat, so a house with one or two other laid back cats would be fine. Respectful kids who would lavish Simon with attention would be great! He’s a quiet, gentle soul looking for a family who will love him forever. Adoption Fee $150. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL. 





LEONARD…is a SUPER sweet RED PERSIAN. He is around 2 years old, neutered and has his claws. He weighs a petite 6 pounds. He has a flat little face (breathes just fine! :) and a cottony, bright orange coat that is currently shaved into a neat lion cut. He has bright gold eyes and one little tooth that sticks out on the bottom. WHAT A CUTIE!! :) Leonard was found as a matted stray in Indiana and was taken to a shelter where he was scheduled to be put down due to space. Fortunately one of our wonderful volunteers heard about him and went to get him right away and then on to SPCR foster care…she saved his life! :) Leonard is just a darling, darling little boy. He was a matted mess and his first order of business was a trip to the vet to be completely shaved down so he would be comfortable. He felt a lot better after that and has greeted his foster mom with head bumps and purrs ever since. Leonard starts off a bit shy with new people (who knows what this poor boy went thru before coming to SPCR) but adjusts quickly and then is just an attention seeker. He is quiet, moderately active and loves to be pet and doted on . He DOES NOT LIKE OTHER CATS, so this sweetie has to be the ONE AND ONLY KITTY in his household. Dogs and respectful older kids would probably be fine though! Leonard has a high-maintenance coat that must be either kept shaved or combed daily if it grows out. His eyes also need to be cleaned every other day or so, so a home experienced with the maintenance needs of this breed will be preferred. Since this kitty is such a People Purrson, he’s going to make someone’s life very happy! Don’t miss out on him!  Adoption Fee $250. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.



OWEN… is a gorgeous BLACK PERSIAN. He is eight years old, weighs nine pounds, is neutered and front-paw declawed. What a handsome boy Owen is with his soft ebony coat and brilliant copper eyes! A friendly, sweet lad, Owen loves to be petted and fussed over. He was surrendered to a shelter as a stray, having spent the winter on the streets of Chicago. What makes his story even more amazing is that Owen is blind. He also has a grade 3-4 heart murmur and high blood pressure; his blindness likely caused by a spike in his blood pressure at some point. It’s almost certain that Owen has underlying heart disease causing his murmur and elevated blood pressure, although Owen currently exhibits no symptoms of heart failure. Now in rescue, Owen’s blood pressure is well-controlled on a low-cost prescription drug that he gets once a day. So what does it mean? Owen needs to continue his daily meds, and his condition should be monitored by his adoptive family going forward. He could maintain his current level of stabilization for a long time. But, if Owen begins to exhibit signs of heart failure, there are many low-cost medications that can help cats with heart disease live comfortably. As far as Owen’s blindness goes, he doesn’t let it slow him down. He’s an expert at using his adorable whiskers to help him map out the lay of the land. He gets around his foster room just fine and finds the best sunny napping spots on the most comfy chairs, just as if he had perfect eyesight. Owen is rooming with other cats and gets along fine, so a family with one or two laid-back furry roommates would be fine. Respectful kids would be great. Owen is currently growing out of a lion cut and will need regular coat maintenance to keep him looking and feeling his best. Special Needs Adoption Fee $50. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.




ABBY is a beautiful SEAL POINT RAGDOLL. She is 8 years old, spayed and 4 paw declawed. She weighs a solid 9 pounds has a full, medium length coats in chocolates and caramels, and bright blue eyes. Abby came to SPCR when her person passed away and she was left with nowhere to go. Her foster mom says, “If you are looking for a lap cat, Abby is your girl! She is very soft, sweet and not particularly active. She loves to sit on laps and be doted on and is a loving girl!” Abby lived with other cats and doesn’t seem to mind dogs. Older respectful children would be fine. She has just had a full dental cleaning and blood work, indicating she is a healthy kitty indeed and is ready to go home to laps and love. Abby is listed as Special Needs because she does need to be kept on prescription food for urinary tract health (C/D, found at any vet clinic and costs the same as any quality cat food). She uses the litter box 100%!  Special Needs Adoption Fee $75. FOSTERED IN DUBUQUE, IOWA.




NALA… is a lovely CALICO AND WHITE MAINE COON. She is 4 years old, spayed and front declawed.  She is 11 solid pounds and has a medium-length silky coat of primarily white with splashes of orange and black. Nala came to us from a shelter in Indiana where she had been left when her owner passed away. It’s been a shock to her to have lost her only home, but she is coming along nicely in foster care and is now ready for her FurEver Home. Nala is timid and shy at first and would probably thrive best in a quiet, adult home with no small kids. She could adapt to another easy-going cat with proper introductions. Older, respectful children will be fine. She is a very affectionate, sweet natured girl who is always purring and loves to do “happy feet.”  She also loves attention and loves being close to people. She is pretty laid back and enjoys playing with catnip mice. Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN WAUKEGAN, IL.




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


This part of the website is for domestics that have come into our program because they are part of a pair (one of which was a purebred) or some other reason having to do with our admission process.  Please DO NOT ASK US TO TAKE YOUR DOMESTIC BECAUSE WE CANNOT.  We have very limited space even for purebred cats and have to keep those spaces open for them.


JAKE… is a funny, lovable RED TABBY AND WHITE DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR. He is about 7 years old, neutered and has all 4 paws declawed. He’s about 8 lbs and a total lap cat! Jake had a tough time lately when his family moved and left him alone in the empty house. He came to SPCR in pretty bad shape, but from the start he was eager to be loved. In his foster home, he very quickly became friends with the other cats and dog in the family, He’s super easy-going, loves to be petted and cuddled, and begs for food by sitting on his hind legs (see above! :) ! He’s even walks on two legs in order to follow his foster parents around the kitchen when he thinks he’s getting dinner! Jake would do best in a loving home where any other pets are as easy-going as he is and won’t bully or get in his face. No small kids please. If you’re looking for a kitty that comes when called and will love you unconditionally, then Jake is for you! Adoption fee $75.  FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.



IVY… a gorgeous CALICO DOMESTIC SHORTHAIR. She is 1 year old, spayed and has her claws. Ivy was brought into a local shelter as a feral cat, but she quickly showed everyone how NOT feral she was! She LOVES her mink toy (comes with her,) belly rubs, nose rubs and snuggles. She is great with non-dominant cats, purrs up a storm, and is one of the prettiest cats the foster mom said she has ever been lucky to foster! She is a lap cat, so a lap needs to be readily available. ;)  Ivy is shy in new situations but she will warm up in no time.  A home with small children and active dogs would NOT be appropriate. Ivy would do fine with older respectful children. This is a fantastic cat, and she is looking for a home worthy of her love and beauty!  Mixed Breed Adoption Fee $100.  FOSTERED IN MILWAUKEE, WI


RUBY DEE … is an energetic BROWN TABBY DOMESTIC SHORTHAIR. She is just under 2 years old, spayed and has her claws. Ruby was adopted from SPCR as a kitten with another cat, but as she has grown up it has become obvious that Ruby must be an only cat. She is dominant Queen Bee so we are looking for a home where she can be the one and only. Ruby appears to be unafraid of dogs, so may very well be able to live with a dog that is good with cats. Ruby LOVES to be around people so her future family needs to be willing to let her be with them all the time. Ruby is too energetic for kids and prefers to be next to her people not on them. She thoroughly enjoys cuddling up next to adults when the mood strikes her. :) She is EXCELLENT with using cardboard scratchers and her litterbox. Ruby needs an adult-only family with that is cat experienced and enjoys independent, loving personalities! :) ADOPTION FEE $50. FOSTERED IN OAK PARK, IL.

ZIGGY…is a wonderful GRAY TABBY AND WHITE DOMESTIC SHORTHAIR. He is around 8 years old, neutered, front declawed and weighs around 8 solid pounds. He has an easy gray and white coat and amazing emerald green eyes. Ziggy is a survivor, as you can tell by his ragged ears. Life has only started being good for this happy boy and now all he needs is to find that purrfect FurrEver home where he will be loved the way he always should have been. Ziggy came to the attention of SPCR when a volunteer saw him sitting in an Indiana shelter with a coat lousy from malnutrition and a face naked from food allergies. She could tell what a great personality he had and knew he wouldn’t have a good chance of being adopted there so she brought Ziggy to our attention and he was whisked up to foster care. Fast forward a few weeks and lots of grain-free quality cat food and Ziggy’s face is fully furred. He just received a perfect bill of health from the vet and his teeth are great! Ziggy is an easy-going, friendly, happy guy who gets along great with everyone. He’s a bit shy with new cats (probably due to his being a stray before) but with proper introductions does just fine. He would be an excellent family cat for respectful kids and would adapt quickly to loving people. He just needs a good quality, grain free diet and people who care about him! Mature Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED IN MADISON, WI. AT EAST TOWNE PET CLINIC, WHICH GENEROUSLY DONATES SPACE FOR OUR CATS. ZIGGY CAN BE SEEN AT EAST TOWNE DURING ANY OPEN HOURS.  THOSE INTERESTED MUST FILL OUT AN ADOPTION APPLICATION FORM LIKE ANY ONE OF OUR OTHER RESCUE CATS.
