Cat Adoption

 

Fabulous balls of fur!

Here are our current Adopt-A-Pet fosters:

Rocko

Meet Rocko!  Rocko was rescued with his brother Vito from a gas station in Hannibal, Missouri and together they made the long journey to Illinois in hopes of finding a forever home.  Rocko is a handsome boy, with striking green eyes and a gorgeous brown tabby coat.  Mischievous and clever, Rocko loves exploring his foster home but he never turns down the chance for snuggles.  He has the loudest purr and a huge heart!  Will you consider adopting Rocko and his brother, Vito, and give them the loving forever home they deserve? 

Behaviorally and socially, it’s best to adopt kittens in pairs, or into a home with a playful cat.  Kittens really need a playmate in their forever home…and then they can play and snuggle while you’re not home.  Rocko needs to be adopted with his brother, Vito, since they are very bonded. 

If you are only interested in adopting a single kitten, and you’re home most of the day, and able to spend interactive time with a kitten, we will consider adopting out a kitten older than 4 months. Each foster home knows the kitten’s personalities best, and we follow their recommendations for single placements.  

Rocko’s estimated date of birth is 4/1/17.  His adoption fee of $140.00 includes his vet exam, FVRCP vaccinations, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg), routine deworming, microchip and neuter.

Vito

Meet Vito!  Vito was rescued with his brother, Rocko, from a gas station in Hannibal, Missouri and together they made the long journey to Illinois in hopes of finding a forever home.  Vito loves snuggles and to give little kitten kisses! Vito’s a little ball of energy! This little tabby loves to run around with his brother and explore his foster home. But, as soon as you pick him up he purrs like a motor, and snuggles up against you, tucking his head under your chin.  Will you consider adopting Rocko and his brother, Vito, and give them the loving forever home they deserve? 

Behaviorally and socially, it’s best to adopt kittens in pairs, or into a home with a playful cat.  Kittens really need a playmate in their forever home…and then they can play and snuggle while you’re not home.  Vito needs to be adopted with his brother, Rocko, since they are very bonded.

Scarlett

Scarlett has a sweet face and sweet disposition. Although she is a little reserved, she is friendly and playful, enjoys wrestling with other kittens. When you come into the room and talk to her, she gets very excited to see you. Sometimes she teases by running away and then running back. It is fun to watch her cute little prance.

Duffel

Ahoy there, matey!  Duffle is a VERY sweet kitten with an interesting story that we haven’t heard of before.  He was found all alone on a boat in Wisconsin inside some kind of bag. So, we decided to name him after a duffle bag, which is the name given to the sea bag containing a sailor’s personal effects :)!  We are guessing that his mom was either moving the kittens off the boat or onto the boat when he was found.  He was a tiny kitten weighing less than one pound when he was rescued from the high seas, well maybe a few lake waves :).  When Duffle was tiny, he would come sit on top of anyone’s foot who happened to be standing around.  Now when he climbs on foster mom’s lap, he jumps up to her shoulder to get a snuggling hug.  Duffle has been fostered with other kittens and loves to join in on the wrestling and cuddling with his furry friends.  He is a super easy going kitten who has been in a home with cats, dogs and kids that are 10 & 15 years old ~ he LOVES everyone!!!

Behaviorally and socially, it’s best to adopt kittens in pairs, or into a home with a playful cat.  Kittens really need a playmate in their forever home…and then they can play and snuggle while you’re not home.  Duffle gets along with all kittens he has met.  Check out our website for other available kittens, unless you already have a playful cat in your home.  

If you are only interested in adopting a single kitten, and you’re home most of the day, and able to spend interactive time with a kitten, we will consider adopting out a kitten older than 4 months. Each foster home knows the kitten’s personalities best, and we follow their recommendations for single placements. 

Duffle’s estimated date of birth is 4/30/17.  His adoption fee of $140.00 includes his vet exam, FVRCP vaccinations, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg), routine deworming, microchip and neuter.

Tommy

Meet Tommy.  He is a big boy at 11 lbs, and approximately 1 year old.  But, his foster mom thinks he might not be quite done growing yet because of his big legs and feet. Tommy was brought to a veterinary hospital as a stray.  So happy Adopt-A-Pet had room in one of our foster homes for him!  He is super friendly and would lie in your lap forever if you let him.  But, then he is off running and playing because he is still very kitten-like. He keeps trying to make friends with his feline foster sister even though she is not too interested. So he would definitely be a good companion to another friendly cat.  He is also very good with the children in the foster home.  If you want a young playful cat without the rowdiness of a very young kittens, please consider Tommy.  Just look at this adorable face with the little smudge around his nose!

Tommy’s estimated date of birth is 9/30/15.  His adoption fee of $115 includes his vet exam, FVRCP vaccinations, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg), routine deworming, flea control, microchip and neuter.

Poppy

Meet Poppy, one of the sweetest cats ever! 

Poppy came into Adopt-A-pet pregnant and soon delivered the “P” kittens :).  Poppy was an AWESOME mama and now that her kids are ready to fly the nest, she is ready to find her forever home too!  Poppy LOVES attention, and will come right up to give you a head butt or a rub on your legs.  As soon as you say “Hi Poppy”, she starts to purr, even before you give her a pet.  Poppy was a friendly stray girl who made her way into a feral colony in a northern Chicago suburb.  When we first met Poppy, she came right up for a pet.  Poppy is a also a bit of a chirper, I wouldn’t call it a full meow, she’s just saying ‘Hi” and to let you know how happy she is.  She also makes this cute sound when she wants to know where you are in the house.  Poppy NEVER hides, and comes when she is called – she is always happy to see her human friends. She is a minimal transition girl!  Poppy has been in a foster home with children 10 & 15 years old, and is completely fine with them.  Poppy doesn’t mind being held for a short time, but she would rather be down on the ground exploring or sitting near you.  Poppy has not been friendly to the dogs in her foster home, but that may have been because she was in protective mama mode. 

Poppy would be fine as a solo cat, or in a multiple cat home.  

Poppy’s estimated date of birth is 8/17/15. Her adoption fee of $115 includes her vet exam, FVRCP vaccinations, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg), routine deworming, flea treatment, microchip, and spay.
