*** SPCR MARCHETTI NEEDS YOUR HELP! ***

marchi1 (2)

Do you remember this little cutie that flew first class from Eau Claire to Green Bay, WI by the very kind David Tan? She was found wandering in a forest alone and very underweight. Well, she is doing terrific in her foster home, except for one big issue. At only a year old, “Marsha” was diagnosed with Juvenile Cataracts and is 75% BLIND. Don’t get me wrong, she gets around great and plays and chases like any other young kitten, but if we don’t correct the cataracts, it will most likely lead to Glaucoma, which is an extremely painful eye condition that is NOT curable and she will lose both eyes. SPCR is bursting with needy kitties this time of year and the well is dry for the extra care Marsha is going to need. Her surgery will cost $5,000! WE NEED YOUR DONATIONS MORE THAN EVER. ANY AMOUNT HELPS! She is too young to lose her eyesight! CAN WE DO IT?

SPECIAL NEEDS

BESSIE…is a cute little WHITE PERSIAN.  She is around 6 years old, spayed and has her claws. Her medium-care coat is currently growing out of a neat lion cut and she has a squishy little face and bright gold eyes (and how about the cute little tongue tip sticking out? :)  She is a little girl at a bit over 6 pounds. Bessie was left at a shelter in Kentucky when she was diagnosed with extremely painful bladder stones that needed to be removed and her owners would not do it.  The shelter reached out to us and our transport angels got into motion and Bessie made the long trip up to northern Illinois and into surgery right away! She healed very well and is no longer in pain…in fact she is very playful and happy and loves bouncing around with wand toys! Bessie is listed as Special Needs because she needs to be on prescription S/O food (found at any vet clinic and the same price as any premium cat food) to make sure that she will be healthy for the rest of her life. She is affectionate and friendly and gets along fine with other calm pets. She would be ok with respectful older children. Bessie doe have a flat face that needs to be kept clean regularly, so a home familiar with the maintenance needs of Persians will be preferred. She likes to be with and around her people…and she’s so cute you will want her around you all the time anyway! :) Special Needs Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED IN CHICAGO, IL. 


 

Chicky

CHICKY… is a darling TORTI HIMILAYAN. She is spayed and has her claws. She has pretty blue eyes and a coat in shades of cream and mocha that is currently shaved into a lion’s cut (see video). This gentle gal is around 15 years old, but she is in good health. She had a senior blood panel and a dental cleaning. Chicky was given to SPCR because her family could no longer keep her due to personal issues. She was matted and thin when she arrived at SPCR, but she was also very sweet and her foster mom could see that she still had a lot of love to give. Chicky loves getting pets, sleeping on the couch, and chasing glitter balls. Oh, and don’t forget wet food – open a can of Fancy Feast and this little girl is in heaven! She is a gentle, happy-go-lucky girl and is very easy to please.  She has lived with another cat her whole life and enjoys sleeping curled up with some of the other friendly foster cats. We would like a quiet home with no dogs or young kids – just a nice retirement home where this sweet girl can spend her golden years. Please consider opening your home to this gentle gal. Mature Adoption Fee $25. FOSTERED IN RIVER FOREST, IL.

APPLICATION PENDING

PORTIA… is a stunning 11-year old BLUE POINT HIMALAYAN. She is spayed and front paw declawed. Sweet Portia, who weighs about 7 pounds, is simply lovely inside and out. Her beautiful cream coat is accented with soft charcoal points and brilliant blue eyes. Spend five minutes with Portia and she will steal your heart with grace and charm. Portia was cared for by her family of 5 years, but as the household grew and added little ones, it became too busy and bustling for Portia’s calm nature. She has a heavy coat that will require regular grooming to keep her comfortable. So, daily combing, eye care and an occasional bath are a must for this princess. Portia’s perfect home would be a quiet one with adults; small children and energetic dogs would be too much for this gentle spirit. Older, respectful kids would be great. And with proper introductions, she would do well with one or two other cats who would not pick on her. An older, gentle dog who would ignore her, would likely be fine. Portia is a sweet, gentle soul looking for a lap and a sunny window where she can spend her golden years. As charming as she is beautiful, can you give your heart to Portia? Mature Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

SUSHI AND NICKY are a wonderful sibling pair of Siamese.  They have been together their entire lives (literally from the womb) and since their elderly, human mom was unable to take care of them they moved from Kansas City, briefly stopping in rescue in Illinois, and now have softly landed here.  They are a bit older at 11 years but are the sweetest pair, you will ever meet.  They are a tad on the shy side to start and it’s no wonder given that they have been uprooted and gone through substantial vetting to make it this far.  Both are affectionate and trusting and really just want to snuggle with you and have your eyes tell them this next stop is forever.  Because they have always been together, we would like them to stay together and be able to live long and happy days with one another….and you!

sushi2-6-20-15

SUSHI… is a gentle SEAL POINT SIAMESE.  She is spayed, has her claws, weighs about 10.5 pounds and has a very dark, thick coat.  She has had a full blood chemistry panel that indicates great health and a substantial dental that leaves her only with her canines.  She eats both kibble and wet food despite the lack of teeth.  Yes, she’s chubby.  Some might call her “fat” but this girl would much rather substitute your lovin’ for less food.  She’s quiet, enjoys brushing, loves to lie on your legs belly up for a long, long belly massage.  She is so cute when this happens.  Gradually as she relaxes her legs fall wide apart, her tail droops down and she becomes like jelly.  She’s incredibly sweet and a calm lap girl. 

Nicky2-6-21-15

NICKY… is a handsome CHOCOLATE POINT SIAMESE.  He is neutered, has his claws, weighs about 9 pounds and has a vibrant chocolate coat and striking blue eyes.  Nicky has also had a full blood chemistry panel and a substantial dental that also leaves him with only his canines.  He eats both kibble and wet food too.  Nicky’s blood panel indicates that he is slightly hyperthyroid which is readily controlled with inexpensive medication that he needs daily.  He is super, super simple to pill.  Once he is comfortable (and he starts out shy), he loves to talk and will seek you out for lots and lots of loving and petting for hours. His blue eyes look so longingly at you, he’s hard to resist.

Okay, so neither are perfect.  If you think for a minute about what happens to us as we get older, Sushi and Nicky display that too.  How many of us as we age, put on some weight around our middles.  And, likely we add a prescription or two to the mix.  It doesn’t make us less lovable or undesirable.  Sushi and Nicky are just like us.  They are lovable and will make great companions in a quiet home that wants some gentle buddies for company.  They are in most ways “easy”.  They would probably be okay with another gentle cat or a gentle dog.  Kids aren’t their style.  You, a couch, daily time for loving?  Retirement at its finest for these two great kitties.

Mature adoption fee for the pair is $50.  FOSTERED IN OSHKOSH, WI.


 

ADOPTED!

TOBYis a darling BLACK SMOKE PERSIAN. He  is  7 years old, neutered and has his claws.  He is of moderate size, weighing about 8 pounds.  Toby came in to foster care with his sister and both were in terrible condition.  They  were severely matted and each required a complete shave.  He and his sister were adopted together to a good home but his sister decided she had to be queen of the household and Toby was not going to be part of her court so he had to come back.  His hair is growing out nicely and his confidence is returning.   With some good food, love, consistency, and a calm environment, Toby is now happy and healthy.  He is a little sensitive and can be shy with new people.  However, once he warms up to someone and knows he is safe, Toby LOVES to have his loving time.  He purrs when his foster mom rubs his head… that’s his favorite.  He is not one to crawl into laps, but sitting next to his person is PURRFECT.  Toby needs a quiet home without a lot of noise and activity.  He is currently with another cat and they are doing well together.  A feline companion is not out of the question for Toby, but it would need to be a non-threatening, possibly older cat. No small kids or dogs please.  Mature Adoption Fee $100. FOSTERED IN DEPERE, WI.

Mia new (2)

WE HAVE A NEW VIDEO!

SASSY (top) and MIA… are two year old sweet “sisters” who were surrendered to an Indiana shelter because their family could no longer care for them. Both girls are spayed and have their claws. SASSY is a gorgeous petite SEAL POINT RAGDOLL weighing in at six pounds. Her classic coat is a silky blend of mocha and cream. She has blue eyes and an easy doll face. MIA is a beautiful SNOWSHOE wearing a sable and white coat with the cutest black markings on her face. She was being camera shy, so you can’t tell from her picture, but Mia has gorgeous turquoise eyes. Mia is the bigger of the two at 7-1/2 pounds. These sweet lambs are on the shy side, but are total purr bugs once they warm up. They have been through so much change and as far as we can tell, they’ve always been together, so we’d like for them to go home together. Sassy’s coat, although on the silky side, will still need maintenance. Given proper introductions, another cat who would ignore them would likely be fine. Dogs or small children would be too much for these gentle souls. They need a patient family who is willing to give them the time it will take for them to blossom. Once they open up and learn they can trust again, these girls will reward you with a lifetime of sweet love. Adoption Fee for the pair $200. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

Cleo 2 (3)

ADOPTED!

I went home to Wrightstown, Wi.!

CLEO… is a 5 year old SEAL POINT SIAMESE, neutered and front declawed.  He is a petite little guy, coming in at just over 6 pounds.  Cleo was alone for 6 weeks when his elderly owner was placed in a nursing home.  He came into the foster home quite scared, but now that he is receiving good food and has companionship, Cleo is really doing fabulously again.  He plays beautifully with Chubby, his roommate, and now approaches his foster person for affection.   Cleo enjoys sitting by his foster on a chair, nudging her hand to be petted.  He would not do well in a home that is too busy, loud, or active.  He needs an environment where he knows he is safe and comfortable and his people would be there with head rubs, treats, and a toy to play with.  A home with a non-aggressive cat would be best for Cleo.  He looks for Chubby (posted in the Unkommon Kitty Korner) and seeks him out, so he probably finds comfort and security with him.  He grooms and plays with Chubby as much as Chubby does in return.  Children are not out of the question for Cleo, but they would need to be old enough to respect his needs.  A dog might be too much for Cleo.  Cleo has come a long way since coming into the foster home, his progress will only continue with a home and a family of his own. Adoption Fee $150. FOSTERED IN DE PERE, WI


 

Magic3 (3)

APPLICATIONS PENDING

MAGIC…is a beautiful SEAL POINT RAGDOLL. He is 9 years young, neutered and is a four paw declaw. He weighs 10 pounds and has a gorgeous chocolate and white coat and has blue eyes. Magic was well taken care of and loved by his previous person but wound up in rescue due to his owner losing her home. He loves to be petted and the minute you touch him he starts to purr. He likes to play with his toys. He loves to be brushed and will lie down and let you brush him as long as you want! He is also very good about using his litter box. This handsome boy is vet checked, up-to-date on his shots, micro-chipped, and could easily have another decade of love to give! The best home for him would be quiet and adult with no small children or dogs. He would probably be fine with other cats that would leave him alone and not bully or dominate him. Mature Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED IN MUKWONAGO, WI.


 

Arya2 (2)

arya (2)

ARYA… is a sweet, petite SEAL POINT SIAMESE. She is around 10 years old, spayed, has her claws, and weighs a tiny 5 pounds. Arya is just as cute as a button! She has a tiny, short, dark chocolate face with a beautiful lush mocha coat. Even her tail is short and petite. Arya came from a shelter in Western Wisconsin with no history, but she received great care there and she is in great shape. She recently had a dental and blood work and is all ready for your home! Arya has the most gentle soul! Her demeanor is so charming and quiet! She does not demand anything, but appreciates everything. She does not care to be held. She is a very calm girl that will casually waltz around to the people in her room and give them a gentle head bump or rub on their leg for pets. You have to listen carefully, but she is purring. Her hearing may not be the best as it once was, but hey, it happens to the best of us! We suspect Arya may have come from a quiet home setting, so one similar would be ideal… adult, low key, older respectful kids (12+) would be ok, as would another calm, older kitty that would not bully or push her as she is too docile to push back. Arya seemed very comfortable entering her foster room, so we expect her to readjust in your home just fine! She will probably make a nice gentle companion to a lucky family who will appreciate her calmness and age! MATURE ADOPTION FEE $80. FOSTERED IN GREEN BAY, WI.

nora (2)

 ADOPTED!

I went home to Madison, WI!

NORA… is a rubenesque SEAL POINT SNOWSHOE SIAMESE.  She is between 3-4 years old, spayed and has her claws.  She has bright blue eyes, a dark chocolate mask, a pair of white painted toes on her front paws and a pair of white socks on her back legs.  If Rubens painted cats, Nora would be a perfect model.  Her former owners moved from their apartment and left her behind.  Thankfully, a kind neighbor brought Nora to a local Chicago shelter.  Her former owners overfed her and left her with a fully, curvy figure.  So, there is a lot of Nora to love and she adores sharing herself with humans.  She is sweet and affectionate.  She will climb into laps and kneads when she is happy.  Nora is good with children.  Nora prefers humans to other animals, but could co-habitat with another cat or dog who would leave her alone.  Adoption Fee $150. FOSTERED IN OAK PARK, IL.

Lavender Pic

 ADOPTED!

I went home to Spring Green, WI!

LAVENDER… is a darling BLUE PERSIAN. She is 7 years old, spayed and has her claws. She came to us when her owner couldn’t care for her any longer. She is a sweet girl who is a little shy at first but will sit on your lap for a cuddle, then retreat to her bed for a nap. She is a smaller girl at about 7 lbs. She seems tolerant of our outgoing clinic cat and would probably do great with other respectful cats. She is currently sporting a cute lion cut and she will need regular coat maintenance to keep her looking and feeling her best. Like a typical Persian, she will need daily care for her eyes and routine care for her ears. She is good about having her eyes and ears cleaned. A Persian-experienced home would be best for this sweet girl. Adoption Fee $100.

ADOPTED!

SONGLEE…is an adorable LYNXPOINT RAGDOLL. She is around 8 years old, spayed and 4 paw declawed.   She’s a teeny little girl for being a Ragdoll, weighing in at 5.2 pounds.  She has a medium-length coat with gray, black and white markings and bright blue eyes. She has just had a full dental cleaning and blood work to assure health. This lovely kitty was left at a Chicago shelter because grandchildren in the home were picking on her and she spent her entire time hiding and miserable. In foster care she is reported to be “very low key.” She came from a home where she was the only cat and could live that way, but she could also live with another calm kitty that would just let her do her own thing. She is dainty, sweet little thing who is shy at first but loves attention and moderate playtime. Songlee would do best in a quiet adult home with no kids or dogs.  Mature Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.


 

FREDDYis a sweet CREAM PERSIAN. He is around 4 years old,  neutered, has his claws, and weighs about 7 pounds. He has  a lovely, easy-care “doll” face, medium care peachy cream coat and huge gold eyes. Freddy came from a home where he was very loved but his folks had severe health issues that kept them from being able to care for him any more. His coat was pretty matted so we had to shave him down so he would be comfortable. Yes, he may look a bit funny right now, but FUR GROWS! :) Freddy has taken the loss of his home pretty hard but we are confident he will be happy again. He is fundamentally and gentle, quiet, somewhat shy cat, but as you view his video below remember that he is quietly purring throughout and really enjoys being pet and combed. The best home for Freddy would be similar to the one he grew up in…adult, low key and with no small kids or dogs to rock his world. He would be fine with other calm kitties that would not bully or push him as he is easily intimidated. He will probably be a great cuddly buddy for a someone familiar with the coat requirements of long-haired cats or dogs once he settles in and feels at home. Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.

Angel2 (3)

ANGEL… is a darling SEAL POINT SIAMESE.  She is a 6 years old, spayed and has her claws.  Angel was surrendered to a local shelter in a sad mental state.  She was being tormented by kids in the house where she was living and she was terrified.  The shelter could not get near her and they decided that a quiet environment was best for her if she had any chance of rehabilitation.  Fortunately SPCR was there to help! Her foster mom says, “When she came into my home she was petrified.  I couldn’t get too close to her without a warning from her.  It took 2 weeks before I could pet her and at that time it was very limited and only on the top of her head.  As she learned that I was not going to hurt her, she started to trust me more and more every week.  She has come miles from where she was entering my home.  Angel now crawls in my lap and rubs on me for even more affection.  She enjoys being pet all over her body and not just on the top of her head.  She has been exposed to other people, adults AND kids, and has shown the same comfort level with them.  She did have a feline companion and I saw her not being as comfortable and confident.  So I have made sure she is by herself since.  I do believe that she would do better as an only cat.  I do NOT think that kids are out of the question as long as they are calm and respectful.  The lucky person (people) to take Angel home need to be patient and calm, allowing her to come to you.  After you have gained her trust she will seek you out for love.  I think she is trying to make up for lost time.  But she is more than happy to crawl on someone’s lap and sit for hours.”  This little girl will make some calm, adult home very happy! Adoption Fee $150. FOSTERED IN DEPERE, WI.


 

Toby lilac pt (2)

TOBY… is an 8 year old LILAC POINT SIAMESE, neutered and has his claws.  Toby unfortunately lost his owner when she passed away.  He stayed in the apartment alone for 2 months.  As things were packed up and moved out, Toby became more and more stressed.  When he came into the foster home he was so frazzled and couldn’t take any more.  He was used to being king of his castle and slowly that all crumbled.  When he stopped eating he was taken to the vet, and found to have an ear infection and a horrible mouth of teeth, but could only attribute the lack of appetite to a broken heart.  Nevertheless, the foster family got him back on track, had Toby’s dental completed, and gave lots of time, patience, and love.  He now rolls over on his back and loves belly rubs!  Toby isn’t a cat to come for affection, but would look at you with eyes asking for attention.  The purring has returned and his eating is completely back to normal.  When Toby is picked up, he’d melt into your arms.  He currently is with Angel, also posted, and they are co-existing peacefully.  A dog would be too much for Toby.  Young children would also be too much for him.  If he had a feline companion, he could adapt.  Toby still has a mindset of royalty, he seems to think he needs servants to pamper him.  Would you be the one?  :D  Mature Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED IN DE PERE, WI.

R and S nosekissing (2)

RAPHAEL and SERAFINA… are a bonded pair of SILVER PERSIANS.  They have the same father but different mothers and were born within 2 days of each other.  They have been together since they were 8 weeks old.  They are currently shaved in lion cuts because their coats were so uneven when they came into rescue.  RAPHAEL is 6 yrs old, neutered, front paw declawed, weighs 12 lbs and has large expressive green eyes.  SERAFINA is 6 yrs old, spayed, front paw declawed, weighs 6 lbs and has the same large green eyes.  They came from a home where they were very much loved by their “mom” but due to family conflicts were surrendered.  They are both VERY shy and whoever adopts them needs to understand that they will need time to adjust and come out of their shell.  After a few weeks of quiet time with their foster mom, Raphie now sits next to her purring and enjoying pets while his sister Fina loves to snuggle on Foster mom’s lap.  They also enjoy laying in the sun watching birds from the window.  Raphie and Fina would do best in a quiet home with no dogs or other cats.  Older children would be OK.  Adoption Fee $300 for the pair.  FOSTERED IN PEWAUKEE, WI.


 

Sadie

SADIE… is a gorgeous SEAL POINT HIMALAYAN. She’s 10+ years old, weighs around 8 pounds, is spayed and 4-paw declawed. If you think you’ve seen Sadie here before, you’re right! She was adopted, but didn’t get along with the resident cat. For that reason, we’re recommending Sadie be on only cat. Sadie has an exceptionally luxurious coat, but when she came into rescue, her bib was quite matted, so the groomer chose to shave her. Now she’s in a super-cute lion cut, but her foster mom says Sadie’s coat, a perfect vanilla latte with dark chocolate points, is one of the most beautiful coats she’s seen. And it will grow back. Sadie’s tail is a perfect feather plume she holds high. Check it out in her video. Did we mention that Sadie has the dreamiest blue eyes on the planet? What a super-nice girl Sadie is and a talker too! She will tell you all about her day. Sadie’s owner died, and she was surrendered into rescue by the owner’s son. We’re not sure exactly how old she is, but she had a senior panel indicating she’s in great health! What an awesome companion Sadie will be for some lucky family. Older, respectful kids would be great. She is friendly, super-charming and loves to be petted–just a lovely girl looking for a warm lap and a furever home to call her own. Mature Adoption Fee $80. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

Mochi 1 (2)

MOCHI…is a lovely BLUE LYNXPOINT SNOWSHOE SIAMESE. He is around 3 years old, neutered and has his claws. He weighs about 10 pounds. His points are a creamy gray with slightly darker stripes.  He has bright blue eyes and white mittens on all four feet.  Mochi was brought in to a local shelter by someone who supposedly found him.  He was terrified and overwhelmed by the shelter environment.  In foster, he started out scared, but once he warms up, he is very friendly and vocal.  He loves to be pet and to play.  He begs for attention and thoroughly enjoys interactive play.   He is nervous around other cats and would do best as an only kitty in a stable household.  The best home for him would be quiet, adult and cat experienced. Dogs and kids would be too much for him.  He would be a faithful loving companion for anyone willing to give him time to settle in.  Adoption Fee $150. FOSTERED IN MAZOMANIE, WI.

MAX…….is a handsome SEAL POINT SIAMESE.  He is 5 years old, neutered and has his claws. Has has the gorgeous physique and slim face of the “wedgehead” Siamese and is a beautiful chocolate brown with bright blue eyes. Max came to SPCR when his owner became homeless. As is common for this sensitive breed, he was very upset and withdrawn and really didn’t want to live. Fortunately his experienced foster mom made sure he received a lot of TLC and he’s a healthy 9 pounds and ready for his FurEver home. Max’s foster mom says he is “very sensitive and needy. He wants and needs a lot of human interaction and is SUPER loving.”  He is somewhat talkative but not too much. He is quiet and gets along ok with other cats that do not bully or dominate.  No dogs or small children please. A warm lap and a warm heart would be what this boy would really want and need! Adoption Fee $150. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL


 

Marshmallow

Peanut

MARSHMALLOW and PEANUT… are a 6 year old “brother” and “sister” pair. They were born 1 day apart from 2 different litters, but have lived together since they were young kittens. They came into rescue when their owner developed health issues and could no longer care for them. Both have their claws and are fixed. MARSHMALLOW is a darling doll face WHITE PERSIAN. She is currently sporting a lion cut, but hair grows back! Her coat is full, dense, and quite lovely. She is a petite girl of only about 6 pounds. PEANUT is a hunky FLAME POINT RAGDOLL. He has a soft, silky coat that is medium in length, and he weighs just shy of 8 pounds.

Marshmallow and Peanut are a pure delight! They both love to play with the Cat Charmer wand and LOVE any and all things catnip. Both are very affectionate and relish attention. Marshmallow loves to curl up on a warm lap, and Peanut purrs nonstop from the moment anyone walks into the room. They are very sweet together and take turns grooming each other. Both are 100% with the litter box and use the scratching post without issue. They lived with a small, respectful dog, and would likely be fine with the same. Both are passive and would likely do fine with another kitty who would leave them alone. They also seem like they would be great with respectful children. The best home for Marshmallow and Peanut would be with people familiar with the Persian breed, as Marshmallow requires regular brushing and needs her eyes wiped occasionally. This pair is very loving and will bring joy to their new home for many years to come!  Adoption Fee for the pair $300. FOSTERED IN CHICAGO, IL.


 

Frida 1

FRIDA… is an affectionate LYNX POINT SIAMESE MIX. She is around 4 years old, spayed, and has her claws. Frida arrived at a local shelter as a stray, so we don’t have much history on her, but she looks to be a happy and healthy kitty. Frida is an all-around great cat. She’s quite playful and animated when playing with the Cat Charmer, but is very content to snuggle on a warm lap, purr, give head bumps, and make muffins. Frida needs to be an only cat – she does not seem to like to share her people with anyone! The best environment for her would be a quiet home with someone looking for a devoted companion. Frida will give you all the love she has! Mixed Breed Adoption Fee $100. Fostered in CHICAGO, IL.

ADOPTION PENDING

BARSEK… is an awesome CHOCOLATE POINT HIMALAYAN.  He is neutered, about 2.5 years old, has his claws, weighs about 9 pounds and has a rich, long and thick coat and pale blue eyes.  His coat is slightly cottony but fairly easy to maintain.  He has a flat face and has no trouble breathing and has very minimal eye drainage.  Barsek and his buddy Umka were dropped at a local humane society when their owners needed to get rid of some of their cats.  They were part of a backyard breeding program (although we don’t know if they were ever used for breeding or were just a part of the family).  Barsek is just a character.  I think he looks like a koala bear!  He starts out quite shy but after some time to acclimate, he is affectionate and low key.  He loves a laser light, a big ball and Umka!  He can be slightly talkative with a quiet, high pitched voice.  What a teddy bear.  He would be fine in a home with another gentle cat and likely okay with a gentle dog (his previous owners also bred Rottweilers).  He’s too timid for kids or lots of activity.  A quieter home would be fabulous.  Adoption fee $250.  FOSTERED IN OSHKOSH, WI.

UMKA… is a laid back EXOTIC SHORTHAIR.  He is neutered, has his claws, is about 1.5 years old and weighs about 8 pounds.  His coat is thick and solid white along with his burnt butter colored eyes. He has a flat face but breathes easily.  His eyes drain regularly and should be wiped daily.  Umka and his buddy Barsek were dropped at a local humane society when their owners needed to get rid of some of their cats.  They were part of a backyard breeding program (although we don’t know if they were ever used for breeding or were just a part of the family).  Umka starts out a bit shy but after adjusting loves attention.  He’s a bit chatty and enjoys brushing.  He’s now met a laser light and thinks it is pretty darn cool. He would be fine in a home with another gentle cat and likely okay with a gentle dog (his previous owners also bred Rottweilers).  Hint, hint — Umka and Barsek are an awesome pair. He’s used to a quiet environment so kids or lots of activity would not be ideal.  A quieter home would be fabulous.  Adoption Fee $250.  FOSTERED IN OSHKOSH, WI.

KIRREE…is a darling BROWN TABBY AND WHITE MANX MIX KITTEN. She is 5 months old. She is a natural “rumpy,” meaning she has no tail or remnant of one, and is a petite girl, but it doesn’t seem to bother her or make her any less normal so far in life. Kirree came in as an ill stray to a local animal control by herself with no history. After a few weeks, she was healthy and completely litter box trained. Through it all, Kirree was a trooper and has always had a loud purr! She is a typical kitten, with lots of energy and needs lots of play time. So far Kirree has adjusted well to new people. She has not been around children, but would likely be fine with respectful kids. It took some time for Kirree to adjust to the adult cats she lives with in foster, but now has decided they are fun playmates, whether or not they feel the same way! Her ideal home would be one with laid back and/or younger playful cats. She is also in foster with a senior non-relative dog. Kirree has taken more time to adjust to the dog. With proper introduction she could likely co-exist with dogs that pay her no attention. Kirree has personality PLUS and would love to be a fun addition to your home! Mixed Breed Kitten Adoption Fee $125. FOSTERED IN MILWAUKEE, WI.


 

UNKOMMON KITTY KORNER

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

VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE:

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.

 

BUDDY…is an EXTREMELY LOVING BROWN TABBY DOMESTIC SHORTHAIR. He is around 2 years old, neutered and has his claws. He weighs between 7 and 8 pounds and has a beautiful brown ticked tabby coat and bright gold eyes. Buddy has had a very difficult life and he is lucky to be in SPCR. He arrived into a local animal control as a ragged stray, missing one entire back leg (it looked as though it had been amputated at the hip at some point). He gets around fine and uses the litter box 100% but he certainly should not have been outside on his own in an urban area! On top of that (and starvation of course), Buddy had a severe bite wound to his face and the infection had penetrated into his jawbone. It took his foster folks several months to get that all under control and he is fine now, but BOY what a journey for everyone! Perhaps Buddy realizes how lucky he has had it because he sure is a NICE GUY. He has a sweet, laid-back personality and loves to take naps with his foster mom. He purrs pretty much all the time and simply ADORES attention and affection. Buddy does fine with other non-dominant cats but prefers people to felines for sure! He would be an excellent cat for either an adults only home or one with respectful older children who would shower him with love and doting. Because of his missing a leg, dogs and small kids would not be appropriate. This is truly a WONDERFUL KITTY and he does great at the vet’s too! :) Adoption Fee $50. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.

SPECIAL NEEDS

WATCH MY NEW VIDEO BELOW!

ZAK…is a very loving BROWN TABBY DOMESTIC SHORTHAIR. He is around 8 years old, neutered and has his claws. He is a big boy at around 15 pounds and has a dense, easy short coat and bright gold eyes. Zak came to us from a local shelter. He and several dogs had been rounded up by animal control when their owner abandoned them in an empty house when she had been evicted. Zak caught the attention of an SPCR volunteer at this shelter when she came to pick up another cat. Despite his large size stuffed into a tiny cage in a strange and stressful environment, Zak stood out with his friendliness and easy-going attitude. He also stood out because his eyes were a mass of scars and sores and he was functionally blind…maybe seeing shadows. After being whisked away to our wonderful Gurnee foster mom, Zak recovered his eyesight and his health with TLC and eye medication. He can now see 100% and gets along just fine in every way. He is great with both cats and dogs and would probably be a great family cat with respectful kids. Zak is listed as Special Needs because he does need an application of eye medication once every day to stay normal. He will need that for the rest of his life. He has gotten used to this routine and it is really not any kind of big deal. But it is important for him. Zak is a gentle, sweet, loving boy who is not particularly active and gets along well in new situations with new people. He would do well in most homes. Special Needs Adoption Fee $25.  FOSTERED IN MADISON, WI. AT EAST TOWNE PET CLINIC, WHICH GENEROUSLY DONATES SPACE TO SHOW OUR CATS. ZAK IS AVAILABLE TO TO BE SEEN ANY TIME DURING OPEN HOURS.

Chubby (2)

ADOPTED!

I went home to Menasha, WI!

CHUBBY…is a CREAM AND WHITE DOMESTIC MEDIUM HAIR with light blue eyes. He is huge, coming in at 16 pounds. He is 2 years old, neutered and has his claws.  Chubby was found and taken by a rescue worker to a shelter. However, he was in need of an entropion surgery (a portion of the eyelid was inverted or folded inward against the eyeball, which was a constant irritation, if not pain, in his eye). So he came in to SPCR to have the surgery. He has since proven to be such a dynamic, special boy.  Chubby has had multiple roommates and has gotten along with every single one.  He plays, grooms, and gives space if needed to his feline friends.  He is a perfect gentleman and there had been absolutely no sign of any kind of aggression.  He is very curious of the foster’s dog, so it is possible he would do fine in a canine home as long as the dog(s) don’t chase him.  Chubby will need someone who is willing and able to monitor his food intake.  He doesn’t seem to know when he has had enough and would continue eating until the food is gone.  Chubby adores being brushed and has tolerated regular eye drops and wipings through it all.  Chubby would sit down facing his foster mom to enjoy a massage on his head and face.  He adores affection from his people.  Chubby would do well in a relatively active home, and respectful kids who would play with Chubby would be a plus.  This is a boy who would make an excellent family cat!  Adoption Fee $100. FOSTERED IN DE PERE, WI
