Cat Adoption

 

Fabulous balls of fur!

These are our current Adopt-A-Pet fosters:

Meet the “L” litter!

Leif is a VERY handsome, friendly, cuddly, and busy boy! He’s a typical young kitten who loves to explore and play with his siblings. Anything on the floor is perceived to be a toy, and if it rolls, all the better! Leif loves playing in and climbing on the mini-cat tree. And when he’s tired, he loves to be held and will cuddle in for a nap. Leif was born in an Adopt-A-Pet foster home. His mom is a super friendly calico (Lexi) and allowed his foster family to handle him at a very young age…so he LOVES his human friends! He was introduced to cats in his foster home and was totally fine. He was not happy about being introduced to the friendly dogs but may be fine over time.

Behaviorally and socially, it’s best to adopt young kittens in pairs. Kittens really need a playmate in their forever home…and then they can get to play and snuggle while you’re not home. Check out our Pick A Pair page to see if one of his siblings is still available, or he’d love another kitten VERY close in age.

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.

Starting 6/22/19, you can meet Leif at his new foster home, Wilmette Pet Center, 625 Green Bay Rd., 7 days a week during normal store hours. (www.wilmettepetcenter.com, 847-251-6750). Although he is so sweet you will want to take him home on the spot, you will first need to submit an application.

Leif’s ACTUAL date of birth is 4/28/19. His adoption fee of $150.00 includes his vet exam, FVRCP vaccination, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing, routine deworming, microchip and neuter.

The Wonderful “K” Litter

Kari is the timidest of the K litter, she prefers to come to you after you’ve settled on the floor, chair, couch etc. Once she warms up to you, she is the sweetest gentlest girl that will happily sit and purr besides you or in your lap. Kari absolutely loves treats! This is the real ticket to her affection. She can sniff a treat out from across the room. If you want to get Kari out of her shell and really see her kitten energy and attitude, shake out a few treats and watch her go. Out of the entire “K Litter”, Kari gets along with Kailee the best. They have similar temperaments and are both calm quiet girls. Also, Kari has a distinct fur color pattern that has earned her the nickname helmet. This is because, well, she looks like she is wearing a helmet. Got along great with the foster home’s large respectful dog.

 

Kailee is another quiet shy girl in the K litter like her sister Kari. She often hangs back and takes a minute to warm up to people. Once she has determined it is safe, she will come to you and purr very loudly. She will watch her littermate play with a toy before she investigates it herself. Kailee has a striking appearance with her very beautiful long fluffy mostly white coat. Of the K litter, Kailee gets along with Kari the best. Got along great with the foster home’s large respectful dog.

Kenny is definitely the most rambunctious of the K litter. Kenny can often be found hoping around like a rabbit with a toy in his mouth. He approaches everything with a typical kitten attitude, curiously and excitedly. Kenny has yet to find a toy he does not like and a person he will not run right up to. Although Kenny is full of energy he does enjoy cuddling and snuggling up to people. Kenny and Kelly have the most similar personality and are often found playing with each other. Got along great with the foster home’s large respectful dog.

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.
