Cat Adoption

 

Fabulous balls of fur!

Here are our current Adopt-A-Pet fosters:

Tinker

Meet Tinker! She is a dark brown tabby. Tinker is an extremely playful kitten who has a lot of energy and she craves affection.  Tinker loves company; she loves to be held and snuggled and enjoys taking long naps right on your lap. Tinker is very fast, she loves to run! One of her favorite things to do besides eating is playing with her sister Belle.  She is also cat and dog friendly. 

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.  At this time, we are requiring that Tinker be adopted with her sister Belle because they are a truly bonded pair.  

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. 

Tinker’s estimated date of birth is 5/16/17.  Her adoption fee of $140.00 includes her vet exam, FVRCP vaccinations, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg), routine deworming, microchip and spay.

Belle

Belle is a light brown tabby kitten with a small cute dot on her nose.  She is very friendly, sweet, and gentle. Belle enjoys belly rubs and playing with her sister Tinker.  Belle is very curious; she loves exploring and discovering new things to use as a toy.  Like her sister Tinker, she gets along with cats and dogs.

A la Mode

This is A la mode.  This sweet kitten was found all alone as a stray in the northwest suburbs of Chicago.  She was the same size as the Pie Litter, so we moved her right in.  And what goes best with pie?  Yup, ice cream, so we named her A la mode.  She is in full kitten mode, ready to play with you, each other and to explore!  A la mode and the Pie Litter absolutely LOVE to be pet!  When the foster home’s 9 year old granddaughter visits, they immediately climb into her lap and up onto her shoulders, looking for some special loving!  How about picking your favorite pie along with A la mode? 

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.  Check out their Pick A Pair page to see if one of the Pie Litter kittens is still available.  Or, if you already have a friendly, playful cat at home, she’d love that too!

A la mode’s estimated date of birth is 7/7/17.  Her adoption fee of $140.00 includes her vet exam, FVRCP (distemper combo) vaccination, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg), routine deworming, microchip and spay.

Maggie

Maggie is a beautiful and sweet girl – friendly right from the start!  She is new to Adopt=A-Pet, so we are just getting to know her.  She was rescued from a high-kill shelter with one day to go…we are so lucky to have found out about her!  

Maggie’s estimated date of birth is 8/29/14.  Her adoption fee of $120.00 includes her vet exam, FVRCP (distemper combo) and rabies vaccinations, FIV/Feline Leukemia testing (neg), dental, routine deworming, microchip and spay.

 

These kittens were born in an Adopt-A-Pet foster home on May 28th!  They are now all independent of their mother and ready to find their own forever homes. 

Ginny is described as the leader of the pack!  She is a confident little girl, bursting with energy, super playful.

 

Gwen is very easy going, and a super sweet and friendly little girl!

 

Gregory was born to be a movie star – he’s so handsome!  He has a super sweet and friendly demeanor, and cracks his foster home up with his quizzical looks!

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.

 

We have everything you need to get started, and, when you adopt any cat you’ll get a coupon book filled with tons of savings.

 Please understand that though you may want to take these adorable animals home with you when you see them, you will first have to go through the application process through Adopt-A-Pet. Applications can be found here; fill it out and send it to volunteers at Adopt-A-Pet. One of their adoption councilors will contact you. 

We are one of the many foster homes for Adopt-A-Pet, and rarely know the adoption status of these cats. You can see all of the animals that Adopt-A-Pet has and contact them regarding the availability of a particular cat on their main site here.
