QUINLAN… is a beautiful dark SEAL POINT SIAMESE. He’s about 5 years old, neutered, and has his claws. He weighs about 10 pounds. Quinlan is a very sweet boy who has had a really tough life. He came into SPCR a few years ago from a shelter with no history but he had had a broken leg that had fully healed already. He didn’t use it but the vet said it wasn’t bothering him so he was adopted out. While he was in his previous home he developed an eye injury that progressed to the point where it had to be removed so he has only one of those now! He came back to SPCR when his family moved and could not take him with them. Now he is looking for his FUREVER home where he will never have to be moved again! Despite his physical imperfections, Quinlan is an EXTREMELY loving cat and loves nothing better than to sit on your lap and be petted and purr away. He’s a bit of a talker who will converse, as well as let you know when it’s treat time! His healed broken leg does not impede him at all. He jumps up on beds, gets around fine and is 100% with the litter box. He is excellent with other cats and lived with a young boy so respectful loving kids would be fine. He is listed as Special Needs purely because of his eye and leg, but really they do not slow him down. He is on the heavy side and would benefit from a quality, limited diet to take a few pounds off. Special Needs Adoption Fee $75. FOSTERED IN SHEBOYGAN, WI
JASMINE… is an adorable TORBIE (coloration) MAINE COON MIX. She is 2 years old 4 paw declawed, spayed, and weighs 12 lbs. This is a solid 12 pounds, from her Maine Coon heritage, not overweight! Jazzy has gorgeous deep green eyes and little tufts at the tip of her ears. She came in with silky long brown and orange fur but she had several spots where she was matted right down to her skin so she had to be shaved. But hair grows and she’ll get her beautiful mane back in a few months! Jasmine will need to be groomed daily in order to keep her hair in good shape or kept in a shorter lion cut. Her owner died suddenly in February and she was in a temporary home until she came into rescue two short weeks ago. We need to find her the right forever home so that she’ll never have to move again. Jasmine did live with another cat so would do well with proper introductions with a cat that is not too shy but would also not pick on her. Jazzy is a little shy at first but after the first day in foster care she came out and started to give head butts and snuggles. She is always purring! What a lovebug! She also loves jumping in the air to catch wand toys on a stick. Older respectful kids would be fine. Mixed Breed Adoption Fee $125. FOSTERED IN PEWAUKEE, WI.
TRISCUIT… is a darling SILVER PERSIAN. She is 10 year young, spayed and has her claws. She is a healthy 7 lbs and has a medium care, silky coat and bright greenish gold eyes. She is excellent with grooming and her lovely “doll” face means that her eyes stay clean and maintenance-free. Triscuit came from a home where she was terrorized by a new puppy and was not doing well. In foster care she started off shy (which is typical of cats that have been in one home their whole lives and suddenly lose everything) but she is now a “purr machine” and really enjoys time with her foster mom. She is a quiet, demure little soul who is not particularly demanding and spends a lot of time in a sunny window watching the antics of the birds outside. She is laid back and sweet natured. The best home for Triscuit would be adult, quiet and familiar with the maintenance needs of longhaired cats. She would be ok with another easy-going cat who would ignore her, as she tends to be more dominant. NO DOGS PLEASE. She has been completely vet checked and is in excellent health. Triscuit will give a lucky person or persons many years of happiness! :). Mature Adoption Fee $75. FOSTERED IN JANESVILLE, WI

BOBBIN… is an adorable LILAC POINT TONKINESE. She’s about 5 years old, spayed, and front declawed. She is a petite little miss weighing at a bit under 6 pounds. Bobbin is a seriously CUTE kitty! She has a soft, plush coat in grays and creams and lovely blue eyes. Bobbin came to us from out of state from people who were no longer able to keep her. As you can see by her video below she is very sweet and affectionate and would probably make someone a good lap kitty. She was not raised with other cats but would probably do fine with others when slowly and properly introduced. Bobbin is a typical little Princess kitty…she’s very affectionate but when she’s done she’s done. She is moderately active and playful, probably ok with respectful older kids and since she’s never seen a dog before we don’t know about that one. Did we mention she is super CUTE? Come make this little beauty your own! Adoption Fee $175. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.

CHLOE…is an adorable CALICO SELKIRK REX. She is 9 years old, spayed, has her claws and weighs eight pounds. Chloe’s coat is a wonderful blend of rich orange, black and white hues. She wears the most adorable black stockings with tiny white mittens on her front feet and has the cutest pink nose in town! We don’t know much about Chloe’s past other than she wound up in an Indiana shelter. This girl is as sweet as they come. She is very friendly and loves to be petted. Chloe is rooming with three gentle Persians right now and gets along fine, although she prefers to keep her distance. She would fit well into most households, but her heavy cotton coat will need regular maintenance. Given proper introductions, another cat or two or a gentle dog who would ignore her would be just fine. Older respectful children would be great. Her foster mom thinks Chloe is one of the cutest cats she’s ever fostered. She’s hoping to be home soon! Mature Adoption Fee $100. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

BUDDY…is a friendly BLUE POINT SIAMESE. He is around 4 years old, neutered and has his claws. He weighs a solid 11 pounds and has a handsome gray and white coat and alert blue eyes. Buddy came from a shelter with no history. What a great kitty!! His foster mom reports that Buddy loves to be around people and always wants to be in the same room as his folks. He is also GREAT with other cats; he will play with them if they like or leave them alone..he is not pushy or alpha. He has been dog-tested and does fine with cat-friendly ones. Buddy is moderately active and somewhat talkative. His foster mom says, “He meows but doesn’t open his mouth most of the time. It sounds like he is saying “hmmm?” ” She also mentions that he is terrified of the vacuum cleaner…not uncommon for many pets. Buddy is tolerant of being held but would prefer to be next to his folks and occasionally on a lap, purring away. He is easy-going, friendly and seems to adapt quickly to new situations. Respectful older kids would be great! Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.

MR. KITTY…is a gorgeous SILVER TABBY (coloration) SELKIRK REX. He is around 2 years old, neutered and front declawed. He weighs a bit of a plump 10 pounds and has a curly lamb-like ultra soft coat in white and silver and arrestingly green eyes. You have seen Mr. Kitty here before. He was adopted out to a very nice family that had to bring him back due to cat allergies. Mr. Kitty is an extremely confident cat. Even though it had been some time since he had been in foster care, he walked back into the foster room as though he had never left and greeted his foster mom like a long-lost friend! He is an affectionate, engaging fellow who loves attention and would prefer a lot of it. He adapts obviously quickly to new people and new environments and, though he has lived with other cats, tends to be quite dominant with them so other easy-going non-timid, non-dominant cats would be fine. He would probably have no problem with a respectful dog and older, respectful kids. Cat experienced folks will be preferred. Mr. Kitty came back rather plump and is currently being fed limited amounts of canned food to reduce the love handles. His new family would need to be committed to continuing his exercise and diet regime so he can regain is svelte self! Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN KENOSHA, WI.
GEORGIANNA… is a beautiful four year-old TORTI-POINT BALINESE cat who is lovingly called, “Georgi,” by her foster family. Georgi has a gorgeous long-haired coat that is very easy to maintain. She also has breath-taking blue eyes, a known trait of her breed. Georgi’s favorite thing to do is play. While she doesn’t like loud toys, she loves to play with long, stringy ones. Georgi also enjoys climbing her cat tower and playing a game of Hide-and-Seek involving some treats with her foster Mom every day. Georgi loves looking out the window to watch the birds, too. In fact, she enjoys this pastime so much that she has two windows of her very own! Georgi enjoys being picked up and kissed as well and she rolls over every time her foster Mom enters the room.
We know a lot about Georgi’s past. Without getting into the exact details, we can tell you that her past included abuse and neglect which is why it took some time for Georgi to trust humans enough to accept affection from them. Georgi came into foster care ill. Initially, it was thought she had a chronic illness, but after learning more about her background, the pieces of the puzzle fell into place and it was determined that she had been under extreme stress all of her life and never had a stable home life. Once Georgi was placed in a stable, safe and loving foster home, her health turned around. Georgi is currently on a raw diet, but she can easily be transitioned over to a diet consisting of a quality wet food. To help maintain Georgi’s health, Primal Pet has generously donated six free bags of the raw food Georgi currently eats which will be given to her forever family when she is adopted.
For unidentified reasons, Georgi doesn’t like other cats. So, she’ll need to be the only cat in her permanent home. Georgi has not had the opportunity to interact with dogs while she’s been in foster care so it is unknown how she will behave around them. Given her history of abuse, it is best for Georgi to be adopted by a family that has older children who are respectful of companion animals and familiar with how to handle them responsibly. Georgi, an absolutely beautiful girl, is waiting for you to fill out an application so contact us today! Adoption Fee $150. FOSTERED IN MANITOWOC, WI

LUNA TOO…is an affectionate SILVER TABBY (coloration) PERSIAN. She is around 1 year old, spayed and has her claws. She is a petite little girl at only 6 pounds and has a lovely, easy, silky coat, nice open face with no eye drainagle and bright green eyes. One of her front lower teeth sticks out a bit giving her a cute “snaggletooth” appearance. Luna came in to a local shelter with no real history. Her foster mom says, “She is a shy girl looking for a very quiet home with patient adult owners. She loves catnip toys and sparkle balls to play with. She has a lovely purr and loves to be rubbed under her chin and around her ears. Patience will be rewarded with a loving companion.” No dogs or young children please. She would be ok with another easy-going cat that would not dominate, jump on or bother her. Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN JANESVILLE, WI

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 $300. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

SHEBA… is a sweet SIAMESE MIX. She is 2 to 3 years old, spayed and has her claws. She has a very unusual multi-colored short coat (see her video below) and aquamarine eyes. Sheba was adopted out from SPCR as a kitten and returned as an adult due to her owners’ financial problems. She came back to us on the chunky side, but has been losing weight with a better diet and exercise and now weighs around 9 pounds. She has a bit more to go but is doing very well! Sheba is a SWEET girl as you can tell from her video. She does start off shy with new people but is quite the attention seeker once she feels comfortable. She is a quiet, low-maintenance kitty who would be great for a home with older people or as a companion for another easy-going cat that would not dominate her. She is currently being fostered with several other mild-mannered kitty roommates and gets along very well with them. She is moderately playful and would probably be an excellent lap cat. A dog that would ignore her would probably be ok. Small kids would be way too much for her. Mixed Breed Adoption Fee $50. FOSTERED IN SPRING GREEN, WI. AT THE SPRING GREEN ANIMAL HOSPITAL WHICH GENEROUSLY DONATES SPACE FOR OUR CATS. SHE IS AVAILABLE FOR VIEWING DURING ANY OPEN HOURS.

ELLIE MAE… is a delightful TORTIE POINT HIMALAYAN. She is 4 years old, spayed, front paw declawed and weighs about 7 pounds. We don’t know much about Ellie’s past other than she was abandoned by her owners when they left the state. Ellie’s most distinct features are her huge, round, beautiful blue eyes. They are so expressive and require no special care. Her coat is a mixture of cream, black and tan that is silky soft to the touch and is not a high-maintenance coat. Weekly combing would be sufficient to keep it sleek. This girl is as sweet as they come. She is very friendly and loves to be petted. In fact, if you stop petting her, she will gently remind you to start up again with a paw tap! It’s so cute! Ellie is a mellow and calm girl whose motor is ALWAYS running. She likes to be near her person and even likes some lap time, but she does not care to be picked up or held. Ellie Mae seems to have been exposed to dogs in her past and would be okay around a gentle dog that would ignore her. She is unsure about other cats. She seems fearful but may be okay with another low energy cat that would not try to bully or dominate her, however, proper and slow introductions must be followed. Ellie is shy in new surroundings, but is never shy with people. Her new family will have to be patient with her as she gets accustomed to a new home. Older, respectful children would be great! She loves her foster kids who are ages 11 & 14. More hands to pet and dote on her! Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN GREEN BAY, WI.

PORKCHOP… is an awesome 1-year-old WHITE PERSIAN. He’s neutered and has his claws. Doesn’t Porkchop have the most beautiful cornflower blue eyes you’ve ever seen? He has a snow white coat, currently cut into an adorable lion cut. Porkchop will need to be groomed regularly as his coat grows, and his eye require daily care. His foster mom isn’t 100% sure, but she thinks Porkchop might be deaf. He had a skin condition which left him with a bald spot on his head. But he’s all healed now and it won’t be long before his hair has grown back. Porkchop was surrendered to an Indiana shelter by a breeder who had become overwhelmed with too many cats. What a lovely boy he is! Porkchop is a gentle soul who’s a bit on the shy side; but once he warms up, he is a purr factory who simply can’t get enough petting. Porkchop would do best in a Persian-experienced quiet home; small tikes and dogs would be too much for him. Given proper introductions, he would probably be fine with one or two other cats who would not bully him. He’s packed and ready to go! Adoption fee $200. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL

The two was surrendered to rescue by a retiring breeder. Pepper is an outgoing, friendly cat who loves to be petted and given attention. She spends her days lying on a soft chair, gazing out the window and watching with interest as spring arrives. Tangle is a bit shyer than her offspring, but once she warms up, she is quite sweet and loving. These cats would fit well into most homes. Pepper would be great with respectful children who would shower her with attention, but Tangle would prefer a quieter adult home. They DO NOT have to go together, but if you’re looking for a special, ready-made couple who gets along well. . . here they are!

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.

PRINCE LEE…is a handsome BLACK DOMESTIC SHORTHAIR KITTEN. He is around 8 months old, neutered and has his claws. He came to the attention of one of our foster homes when she noted he was scrambling for scraps outside in the cold and a neighbor was threatening to kill him. So he was rescued from the outdoors and now has adapted beautifully to being an indoor, family love bug. Prince Lee has a beautiful, sleek, shiny black coat. His hair is short enough that he will not require a lot of regular maintenance. However, he will require someone who is willing to play with him. He is a young guy so he loves to play with feather toys, mice, and just about anything that strikes his fancy. However, he is not particularly as high energy as a kitten of this age. He does enjoy interaction, but also seems to appreciate his quiet time sleeping in the sun. His foster mom says, “Prince Lee is a tease. He will go just out of my reach and flop on his back, rolling over so I will rub his tummy. Because he is so dear, I go to him and rub his head, belly, back, anything. He purrs instantly. I pick him up and hold him close to give even more love. The purr session continues. Prince Lee may not fit the “purebred” label, but he needed to be saved nonetheless!” He would adapt well in a moderately active home with other animals and respectful kids who would give him lots of attention. He is fine with dogs and other cats. Great family kitty! Mixed Breed Kitten Adoption Fee $50. FOSTERED IN DEPERE, WI.
