AND THEN THERE WAS ONE
BRENNA … is a beautiful TORBI AND WHITE MAINE COON. She is around 9 years old, spayed and has her claws. She weighs a little over 10 pounds and has a gorgeous, silky, medium coat in browns, splashes of orange and white. Brenna came to us when her owner became seriously ill and could no longer care for her. She just had a dental cleaning and blood work indicating she is in GREAT shape! She likes all gentle cats and dogs and is an affectionate, loving girl who will do “happy feet” for you when content. She is mildly talkative but no chatterbox! She loves to be pet and is great about combing and brushing. The best home for her would have other cats to pal around with and people who would spend time with her. Small kids would be too intense for her, but older respectful ones would be great! . Mature Adoption Fee $100. FOSTERED IN MANITOWOC, WI.
ANNIE … is an regal SEAL POINT SNOWSHOE SIAMESE. She is spayed and has her claws. She is about 2 years old and weighs a petite 7 pounds. Annie has adorable white paws on all four feet. Her coat is a beautiful mocha, cream and chocolate and she has bright blue eyes. Annie is a bit of a diva, but would be ok with another pet companion given proper introductions. Older respectful children would be fine. ADOPTION FEE $150. FOSTERED IN DUBUQUE, IOWA
OLIVER… is a stunning BROWN TABBY PERSIAN. He is 6 years old, weighs eight pounds, is neutered and has his claws. Currently in an adorable lion cut that makes him look as though he’s made of marbled rye bread, Oliver’s coat has a traditional tabby pattern, and he wears the classic brown-tabby combo of gold eyes and brick nose leather. From the time he was a kitten, Oliver lived with the same owner and a white Persian named Romeo. Oliver and Romeo are good buds, but not bonded. The pair had never been out of the house; not even to the vet. Ever. As you can imagine, when they were surrendered to the shelter because their owner was moving, these boys were simply terrified. A dog rescue in northern Illinois learned of the boys’ plight, provided medical care for them and called SPCR. Oliver is a very nice boy, but is understandably shy and looking for a patient family who will give him the space he needs until he adjusts to his new surroundings. He’s come a long way and now loves his foster papa (check out his video). As his coat grows out, he’ll need to be groomed regularly or kept in a lion cut to prevent matting. His eyes need occasional cleaning, but he’s fine with it. More great news: Oliver just had a dental with no extractions needed. He’s a healthy boy, vetted and ready to go. Oliver’s best home will be a quiet adult one where there’s not a lot of hustle and bustle to frighten him. Since he lived with another cat all of his life, he’d likely do fine with a roomie cat who wouldn’t chase him. A gentle, older dog might be okay, but an energetic dog or one that barks a lot would not be a good fit. He’s just an adorable guy looking for his furever home. His good bud, Romeo, will be on the web shortly. They don’t have to go together, but they enjoy each other’s company. So if you’re looking for a pair of Persians who get along great, inquire about Romeo, too. Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

TABITHA … is a gorgeous TORTI PERSIAN. She is around 6 years old, spayed and has her claws. She is a solid girl at around 10 pounds and has a nice open doll face with clean eyes. Tabisha came into rescue with a very matted coat so she is now shaved into a neat lion cut and is feeling oh so much better! Her coat is a lovely mixture of black, browns and splashes of orange…such a pretty girl! She came from the same home as BRENNA (above) where her owner could no longer care for her. She is very affectionate and good with non-dominant cats that would not bully her. She LOVES attention and is always seeking it out from her foster mom. She has a gentle, quiet personality and would be a joy for a loving family. The best home for Tabitha would be one familiar with the care of long-haired cats or dogs. Her fur is quite cottony and WILL MAT if not kept in a nice summer shave or combed out daily. She would be fine with older, respectful kids. Adoption Fee $200. FOSTERED IN MANITOWOC, WI.
DIXIE… is an adorable, lovable LYNXPOINT RAGDOLL. She is about 3 years old, spayed and has all her claws. She has a beautiful, soft coat and loves to be brushed all over. Dixie was found as a stray full of mats. When she came to her SPCR foster family, she had to be shaved and bathed to get cleaned up for her stay. Dixie is a lap cat and really thrives on attention and being with her people. She get’s along “OK” with other cats. She’s not aggressively dominant, but she likes to be in charge and would do best with other easy going cats or as an only cat. Dixie loves to act cute and get you to rub her belly. She’s proud of her soft coat and really enjoys being pampered. Dixie would do best in a home as an only cat or with other respectful cats and with older children. Adoption Fee $250. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.

MICKEY (right) AND GIZMO… are two handsome FLAME POINT SIAMESE BROTHERS. They are 9 years old, neutered, and have their claws. They are solid boys, with Gizmo weighing in at 12 pounds and Mickey at 14. They have short cream and gold coats and bright blue eyes. They came from a home where they were well cared for and loved but another cat in the household was very dominant and bullying and they were constantly terrorized. The boys are both friendly and loving, though Gizmo tends to be a bit more shy and need time to get used to novel situations. Their foster mom says, ” They are GREAT cats. They sit on my lap, love being cuddled and dotted on, and are moderately playful for their age.” Both do best on a high quality, grain free diet and are extremely healthy. Siamese are the longest lived of the breeds so 20+ years is not unusual. These guys are just getting started! :). Mickey and Gizmo have always been together from birth and are very attached to each other. They need to go home as a pair. Small children would be too much for them but older children would be fine. A respectful dog would be ok, as would other cats that would not bully them. Mature Adoption Fee for the Pair $100. FOSTERED IN DEPERE, WI.

GRACIE… is a stunning CALICO PERSIAN. She is around 5 years old, spayed and has her claws. She has a gorgeous long coat in shades of cream, caramel and steel, and big round eyes. Calico Persians are not common and she is a truly beautiful cat! Gracie came to SPCR all the way from Cairo, Egypt. An SPCR foster mom was visiting the Egyptian Society for Mercy to Animals shelter in Cairo in April and saw Gracie huddled in a corner by herself. It was clear that she was someone’s beloved pet at some point and she was very unhappy to be in a shelter with so many other cats. But as you can see from her video (taken at the ESMA shelter), she really warms up when given just a little attention. She is a gentle, friendly girl who loves to find a comfy spot and sleep the day away. She enjoys sitting on her foster mom’s lap and being brushed and giving head bonks. She would do fine with other gentle cats. One cat-friendly dog would probably be okay. Quiet kids would love her. She has an easy to maintain doll face, and did we mention that she is so beautiful?? Please consider opening your home to this sweet and gorgeous girl. Adoption Fee $250. FOSTERED IN RIVER FOREST, IL.

GRETCHEN … is a darling one-year old MITTED SEAL POINT RAGDOLL. She’s spayed and has her claws. A petite little girl at barely six pounds, Gretchen wears a silky coat in light golden hues with a classic seal point mask, white bib and mittens, adorable pink nose leather and deep sapphire eyes. A classic beauty indeed! And she’s as sweet as she is gorgeous. Gretchen, thin and flea-infested, was found as a stray by a very nice woman who helped her find her way into rescue. She’s a kitty who’s a little on the shy side, but warms up quickly and adores gentle attention. She loves her little round scratching toy! Gretchen’s best home would be a quiet one where she can relax and be herself. She’s rooming with another cat in foster care and getting along great, so she’d be fine with another cat or two who wouldn’t pick on her. Dogs who bark or wee toddlers would be too much for her. Older, respectful kids would be fantastic. Her coat is really silky and fairly easy to care for, but needs occasional combing–which is fine because she loves to be combed. A lap cat in the making, this girl is ready to go home! ADOPTION FEE $250. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

LILLU… is a beautiful WHITE PERSIAN. She is 7 years old, spayed, and has her claws. She has a beautiful white coat and big blue eyes. Lillu ended up at SPCR because her family was going through some changes and could no longer keep her. She took a few days to warm up to her foster mom, which is understandable given that she’d just lost her home and was surely upset. Now that she is settled into foster care she is a sweet, quiet girl who will bring years of love to a lucky adopter. She is a cat who likes to be near you, but not on you – she seeks out attention but is also content to do her own thing. She lived with another cat in her prior home but would be fine as an only cat as well. The best home for her would be a quiet home that would give her lots of love and patience, as she may need a few days to adjust to a new home. Her eyes are runny and will need to be wiped daily. She is good about allowing her face to be wiped. Her coat will require some brushing to remain mat-free. This is a quiet, gentle soul of a cat looking for the perfect purrever home – please consider taking a chance on her and giving her a second chance at a happy life. Adoption Fee $150. FOSTERED IN RIVER FOREST, IL.

Meet DANDY… a wonderful eight-year-old SEAL POINT SIAMESE who is neutered and has his claws. A medium-sized guy, Dandy weighs 13 pounds and wears a classic dark seal point coat with a cafe au lait body and licorice points. He looks at the world through sparkling sapphire eyes. We don’t know the reason, but Dandy was originally surrendered to a Kentucky shelter. Losing his home and family broke Dandy’s heart. He was so depressed, the shelter called us to see if he could get into rescue, and what a difference foster care has made for this sweet boy! He’s now a charming lover, a trait typical of the seal point boys. Although, he is still shy around strangers, Dandy loves his foster family and craves attention. His check up indicated that he’s a healthy boy, but he needed a dental, which we had done. So now Dandy has sparkling teeth to match his eyes! Because he tends to be shy and wary of new situations, Dandy would do best in a calm, adult household. A quiet guy with meticulous litter box habits, Dandy has happily roomed with a variety of other fosters. So given proper introductions, a home with another gentle cat or two would likely be fine. Rowdy dogs or little tikes would be too much for him. Dandy will no doubt be shy at first, so he’s asking for a family that will be patient with him as he learns to trust again. But once his heart is perfectly healed, this sweet boy will give it to you forever. Mature Adoption Fee $100. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

BAGEL…is a handsome BLUE POINT RAGDOLL MIX. He is around 5 years old, neutered and has his claws. He’s a big boy at 12 pounds and has an easy, silky coat in creams and gray and bright blue eyes. Bagel was found wandering around a neighborhood and people were concerned for his welfare. When one of our volunteers who lives in the area went door to door asking about the cat, she did find his owner who flatly said she wasn’t interested in keeping him any more. So he’s now with us looking for a home where this will never happen to him again! His foster mom says of him, “He is a SUPER friendly guy. When I took him to the vet to scan for microchip, he waltzed around like he lived there. He has done no hiding when I brought him home. Always rushes to greet you when his door opens. Loves to be petted. He had no reaction to my cat, so should be fine with a cat that won’t bully him. He did not run up and greet my greyhound, but he also didn’t run away or hiss, so a dog that won’t go after him should be fine. He was calm and let the kids pet him. He does have claws, so respectful kids should be fine. My kids are 2 and 5 and he was fine with them. . My husband went down to weigh him and he purred the whole time. ” A wonderful family cat just waiting for YOU! Very healthy, fully vetted and perfect with the box and posts! Mixed Breed Adoption Fee $175. FOSTERED IN MILWAUKEE, WI.
SYLVIA… is a gorgeous SILVER TABBY (coloration) EXOTIC SHORTHAIR. She is around 7 petite pounds, is spayed and has her claws. Sylvia has an easy, silky coat in silver and black and bright green eye. No breathing issues here, just a lovely face! Sylvia is a very healthy 11 years young. She came from a multi-cat household where the owner could no longer care for her. She is fine with other mellow cats that would not bully her but she would also be fine as a single cat, should someone want a sweet companion. She loves to be brushed and combed and will seek out a comb if she sees you coming with one! What a great way to bond! She is quiet and friendly and likes to be by her people, not on them. She is not a clingy cat and can entertain herself just fine thank you. The best home for her would be adult and quiet, with no small kids or dogs. Mature Adoption Fee $50. FOSTERED IN MANITOWOC, WI.
NICHOLI … is a handsome SEAL POINT SIAMESE. He is 7 to 8 years young, neutered and has his claws. He is 8 pounds and has steel blue eyes as deep as any ocean. Nicholi and his housemate (Moosh Moosh) were taken from a hoarding situation and found themselves in a Milwaukee shelter before coming into rescue. He is eager to love anyone willing to look at him and he is quick to respond with a head butt or a purr. He is great with kids and unfazed by the foster family laborador. He eagerly accepts a good butt spanking (lovingly of course). Nicholi is on the dominate side, but with slow and proper introductions, he would be fine with other cats. He loves his wet food and has perfect litter box manners. For unknown reasons, someone chopped off the tips of his ears, but Nicholi isn’t bothered by his poor treatment. He just wants to be loved and to love someone back. He doesn’t know how to play with toys but loves his scratching post. Siamese can live upwards another decade so he has many more years to share. MATURE ADOPTION FEE $80. FOSTERED IN MILWAUKEE, WI.

TANYA… is a darling SEAL POINT HIMALAYAN. She is around 2 years old, spayed and has her claws. She has a coat in shades of chocolate and cream, and big blue eyes. Tanya came to SPCR all the way from Cairo, Egypt! She was being used as a breeder and was then left at the Egyptian Society for Mercy to Animals shelter (http://www.esmaegypt.org) when her owner no longer wanted her. An SPCR foster mom took a trip to Egypt in April and met her and arranged for her and some other cats from the shelter to come to the US. She is such a very sweet and gentle girl! She started off slightly shy in foster care which is understandable after all she’s been through, but warmed up quickly. She always follows her mom around the foster room and will meow softly or touch her foster mom with her paw to ask for attention. She adores being brushed and loves to sit on the couch beside her foster mom. She is just an absolute doll and will make her new family so happy. Tanya is fine with other cats but she can be kind of a wallflower when other cats are around so homes with fewer/no other cats will be better for her. One gentle dog would probably be okay. Quiet kids would be okay. She has an easy to maintain doll face, and her coat is thin right now but will be beautiful after it grows out. Apply now if interested – a Himalayan this young and cute won’t last long! Adoption Fee $250. FOSTERED IN RIVER FOREST, IL.

COOPER … is a solid, friendly BLUE POINT SNOWSHOE. He’s a little over 1 year old, neutered and has all his claws. He has crystal blue eyes and a very soft coat. He’s a big active guy, that loves to play and he does play rough, so he would do better in a house with no little kids. Once playtime is over, he loves nothing more than to cuddle on your lap for a nap. Cooper gets along OK with his foster cat siblings, however, it takes awhile for him to be comfortable with other cats, so a slow introduction would be required. He does fine with his foster family’s respectful dog. Cooper is a smart, easy-going guy that would do best in a home with older children, other pets or no other pets. ADOPTION FEE $150.

MARLO…is a sweet PUREBRED WHITE TURKISH ANGORA. He is a bit over 1 year old, neutered and has his claws. He weighs around 8 pounds and has a cottony, medium-length coat that was very matted when he came into rescue. He is now in an easy-lion cut and feels a whole lot better! He has bright green eyes. This is a rare breed that we almost never see, and now we have a bunch! You can learn more about them by going to http://cfa.org/Breeds/BreedsSthruT/TurkishAngora.aspx. Marlo came to us with a number of other cats from a multi-cat situation involving an owner who could no longer care for them. His foster mom describes him as, “A sweet, loving cat…he loves other gentle cats loves to be pet. Needs a gentle doting home!” He is moderately active and playful and starts off shy with new people and situation until he is comfortable. His eyes are maintenance free but his coat will need to be either brushed daily, if kept full, or kept in a neat cut. The best home for him will be experienced with the maintenance needs of longer haired cats or dogs, quiet, adult and loving. No small kids or dogs please. Adoption Fee $150. FOSTERED IN MANITOWOC, WI.
MASON… is a sweet, lovable FLAME POINT SIAMESE. He is 4 years old, neutered and has all his claws. He’s a stocky guy that likes to be petted, rubbed on his belly and cuddled. Mason was surrendered to a shelter when his family couldn’t care for him any longer. Mason was treated for an ear infection which was caused by the presence of small cysts in his ears. These cysts are benign and do not require additional medical treatment, but the vet feels that they need to be carefully monitored which is why Mason is listed as Special Needs. It took some time for him to adjust to his SPCR foster family. He’s leery of new situations and you will need to be patient with him while he gets adjusted. He does well with other cats, and quickly learned where he fit in with his foster siblings. Mason craves attention and wants to be near his people — rubbing their legs, sitting next to you or cuddled with you while taking a nap. He also likes to play — and we’ve found he’s got “quick hands” and is very athletic! He doesn’t like to be picked as he prefers his feet to be on something solid, so he would do best a home with older children, with other respectful animals or as an only cat.

DERBY… is a gorgeous BROWN TABBY (colored) AMERICAN SHORT HAIR. She is 9 years young, spayed and has her claws. Her coat is thick, luxurious milk chocolate with dark chocolate swirls. She has bright green eyes. Derby came to SPCR from a breeder who was retiring and needed to place her into a good home. She’s had a recent dental cleaning and blood panel that shows she is in purrfect health! Derby is shy kitty who takes some time to get used to new people and new environments. She does warm up into a sweet girl who could use a quiet home. She gets along fine with other laid back kitties. Small children and dogs would be too much for her. This is a RARE BREED and we are so pleased to be able to help her find a good home! Mature Adoption Fee $75. FOSTERED IN DUBUQUE, IOWA.

HOLLY … is a stunning PUREBRED WHITE TURKISH ANGORA. She is 2 years old, spayed and has her claws. She has a thick, slightly cottony coat which will require regular grooming. True Angoras are a rare breed…one we almost never see in rescue. You can learn more about them by going to http://cfa.org/Breeds/BreedsSthruT/TurkishAngora.aspx Holly came from a home filled with many cats and she was forced to one of a large clowder. This has made her easy-going and on the shyer side as she isn’t used to being singled out for attention. She is sweet, gentle and adores being pet as if she can’t believe that someone is paying attention to her. She will gently pat her foster mom to beg for attention and purr with happiness. It is possible that with positive reinforcement, she could learn to enjoy laps or laying with people. Currently, she lays at her foster mom’s feet. She is easily intimidated by loud noises and sudden movements but she is tolerant of dogs and children when they are calm. She would do best in a home with older children or adults. She likes other cats and would love to go home with another cat from her former household. ADOPTION FEE $150. FOSTERED IN OAK PARK, IL.
NICK and NORA … are a bonded pair. NORA is a delicate 1 year old LYNX POINT SNOWSHOE SIAMESE. She is spayed, has her claws and weighs 8 pounds. Nora also has the cutest white mitted paws. NICK is a stunning 2 year old LYNX POINT SIAMESE with vivid blue eyes. He is neutered, has his claws and weighs 9 pounds. These two were rescued from an addict who could no longer afford to keep them. At the time, Nora was pregnant, but she went into premature labor and the kittens were too weak to stay with her. Nick and Nora are very sweet and affectionate cats who love to be petted and enjoy greeting people at the door. They are very active cats that love toys and jumping. They can be naughty and, if not entertained, they will make their own amusements. Like all Siamese, they are inquisitive and love to explore. They have not been exposed to dogs or children and prefer each other to other cats. This pair loves each other very much and need to find a forever home together. ADOPTION FEE for the pair $175. FOSTERED IN NORTHWEST INDIANA.
MOOSH MOOSH … is a gentle BLUE POINT SIAMESE. He is 6 to 7 years old, neutered and has his claws. Moosh Moosh and his housemate (Nicholi) were taken from a hoarding situation and found themselves in a Milwaukee shelter before coming into rescue. Moosh Moosh, like many Siamese, is a very sensitive soul and the shelter was very terrifying for him. It took three days or so for him to settle into his foster home. He is shyer than his buddy Nicholi, so he will need a few days to settle in anywhere. He is fine with dogs that will ignore him and older children. He startles easily so a super busy toddler or young child may be too stressful. He is fine with other cats with slow introductions. That being said his foster mom says he has the loudest purr and the biggest love flop! He enjoys warm spots in the sun and fresh wet cat food with the gravy. He doesn’t mind having his nails trimmed or being medicated. Truly a sensitive gentle soul that is going to make someone feel like they are his whole world. Could your world be his? MATURE ADOPTION FEE $80. FOSTERED IN MILWAUKEE, IL.
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.

BELLA… is a loving SEAL POINT SIAMESE. She is spayed and FOUR-PAW DECLAWED. She has a plush coat made up of dark chocolate and cream, endearing blue eyes, and a nice pronounced Roman nose. This sweet senior is estimated at 10+ years old and weighs about 12 pounds. She has had a full dental, which included 6 extractions as well as a full senior blood panel that she passed with flying colors! This poor girl had a mouth full of infected teeth and is feeling SO MUCH BETTER now. Bella came to us when one of our vets asked for our help. Bella’s owner passed away and family wanted to end her life. Poor Bella was in terrible shape. She was covered in scabs and fleas and flea dirt and missing a lot of fur on her back end from both flea allergies and stress licking. Her fur was very dry and coarse. Our vet didn’t think Bella should lose her life just because she lost her owner, so Bella came to SPCR foster care for lots of TLC. Over the last few weeks, Bella has been fed strictly high quality wet food, which she loves, and her fur has gotten soft and shiny and is growing back slowly but surely. Her scabs have disappeared and her eyes have a twinkle back in them! She loves to sit and have her head rubbed or bask in the sun and lick cat nip toys. She uses her litter box 100% and she even found the kitten inside her recently when her foster mom got her a new toy, as you will see in her video below. She is not a very active girl and that may be due to her weight. She has very dainty legs and feet and they are holding up extra weight. That’s a lot of unnecessary pressure on declawed toes! Bella’s foster mom is looking for an experienced kitty person who will embrace Bella and her unusual physique and help her back to a healthier lifestyle. She’s already off to a great start! Siamese are the longest lived breeds and Bella could easily have another decade of love to give. She is good around gentle, cat-friendly dogs and older, respectful children. She may be able to adjust to one other older kitty that would ignore her, but she would also be content as an only. Please help us give this sweet senior the best years of her life!

CHIPSY… is a loving GRAY EGYPTIAN PERSIAN. He is around 3 years old, neutered and has his claws. He has a soft gray coat and big golden eyes. Chipsy and 13 other Persians were abandoned on the street in Cairo a few months ago. Persians are sold for very cheap in pet stores in Egypt and there are no government shelters, so when a person dies or moves or just no longer wants the cats, they often end up on the street. A kind person notified an animal rescuer, who caught the cats and fostered them. 4 of them recently came to the US to find forever homes through SPCR, and Chipsy is one of the lucky kitties who now has a shot at a better life! He looks spooked in the pictures (that camera flash is pretty scary right?), but this is one of the sweetest boys that you’ll ever meet! He loves to crawl onto his foster mom’s lap and give head bonks and cuddles. He is enjoying checking out the new toys in his foster room and hanging out in all of the perches and cubbies of the cat tree. Chipsy is good with other cats, and he would do fine with kids and cat-friendly dogs. His coat is a bit short right now but the Egyptian Persians really floof out after a few months of good food (and cold midwestern weather!). Persians from Egypt are bred with a bit longer noses, which is better for their breathing and results in less eye drainage. He is low maintenance as far as Persians go. Please consider adopting this friendly, happy guy – you will be so glad that you did! Adoption Fee $250. FOSTERED IN RIVER FOREST, IL.

ZINGO … is a lucky RED AND WHITE EGYPTIAN PERSIAN. He is 18 months old, neutered and has his claws. Zingo is one of three brothers rescued from the streets in Egypt by a private citizen. This good Samaritan arranged for the brothers to find homes in America. Unfortunately, they arrived in New York City and all the foster homes were full! SPCR arranged for a “friend of a friend” visiting in New York City to bring the boys back to Chicago on the return flight. After a few weeks of recovery, Zingo is ready to find his forever home! He is a laid-back, easy going cat who is good with other cats and dogs. He can be overstimulated so a home with young children would not be suitable. He will snuggle in close for pets, but prefers to be next to people rather than on them. He loves to follow his foster mom around the house and is very people-oriented. He is a darling red boy and it is often said that red boys are the most affectionate and loving. ADOPTION FEE $200. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.
YOSHI … is a stunning BLUE POINT RAGDOLL. He’s six years old, 13 pounds, neutered and has his claws. Wow. What a wonderful living work of art this guy is. He was surrendered to an Indiana shelter because his owner felt they couldn’t afford him. Yoshi has an amazing classic Ragdoll coat in soft creams with subtle grey point and amazing blue eyes. His foster mom thinks Yoshi is perfect in every way. He would fit in nearly any household. He will need regular grooming to stay gorgeous and mat free, but he’s very good about being combed. A sweet, extra-friendly boy, Yoshi is rooming solo in foster care, but we think with proper introductions, he’d do fine with another cat or a gentle dog. Respectful kids would be great. What a cool guy. He won’t last long. Apply for him today. ADOPTION FEE $250. FOSTERED IN PEORIA, IL.

BELINDA…is a beautiful PIXIE BOB. She is about 6 years old, spayed and has all her claws. She came as an owner surrender because there was no longer any room in the home for her. She has had a dental and all of her vaccines are up to date. She loves pets and talks to you wanting attention. She likes the bird on the stick and treats! She is a shy baby so she will need to go to a more quiet home. Her foster mom says, “I have fostered a Pixie Bob before and she has the same wonderful characteristics, the cuddly, compact body, the same little “bleat” and loves to snuggle her back up against you in bed.” Belinda would do best in a home with mellow cats and respectful children. ADOPTION FEE $150. FOSTERED IN MADISON, WI.

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.

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 is good with the foster home’s large dog and older, calm children. Ruby LOVES to be around people so her future family needs to be willing to let her be with them all the time. She also likes to play with all manner of toys and explore. Ruby is too excitable for young kids but she thoroughly enjoys cuddling with adults and older, respectful children. She is EXCELLENT with using cardboard scratchers and her litterbox. Ruby needs an furever family that is cat-experienced and enjoys independent, loving personalities! ADOPTION FEE $50. FOSTERED IN OAK PARK, IL.

JET… (aka “Jetty”) is a friendly, talkative, BLACK DOMESTIC SHORTHAIR KITTEN. His about 10 months old, neutered and has all his claws. He has intelligent green eyes, super soft fur and loves the outdoors. He was found by a neighbor of an SPCR foster home wandering the neighborhood. Jet came right up and said hello while they were working in the garage! SPCR took him in after weeks of trying to find his owner. He gets along great with other kitties and LOVES the foster family’s dog. Jet does appear to be a “runner” and his foster family has had to watch him when going in and out of the house because he will run out to explore any chance he can. He’s fine inside too, so it would just be a matter of keeping doors closed and being aware of where he is. He would love a home with lots of windows or a porch that he can rule. Jet is a super friendly kitty that loves to talk and tell you what he’s doing and what he wants. He would do great in any loving home. Mixed Breed Adoption Fee $50. FOSTERED IN GURNEE, IL.
