Stray from animal control. Adopted and then returned because they were moving unexpectedly and he couldn’t come with.

Cooper’s foster mom describes him as outgoing, playful, social, and curious. He is being fostered in a condo and he always runs to the front door when he hears someone come in the building entrance. Just incase they are coming to visit him. He happily greets any visitors. Cooper has his bursts of playfulness and loves to play with ribbons or wand toys. He also plays with the laser pointer and he loves to hide the shower drain cover from his foster mom. He’s kind of a quirky guy and he loves to roll around in clean (only clean) litter. He has perfect litter box habits. He can be equally social and independent. He loves attention, following his people around, and getting in the way. But he is by no means needy. He loves to look out the window and watch the people walk by. He hates going in his carrier, but once at the vet they said he was one of the easiest-to-handle cats they had seen in awhile. He allowed his foster mom to trim his nails without any fuss. He is a great balance of: affectionate but not needy; independent but not aloof; playful but not hyper; and outgoing but not annoying. He is really an awesome cat.

Cooper would prefer to live in a home as the only pet. He does not appreciate dogs, but he could potentially go to an experienced home with a non-alpha female cat.

About Lulu's Locker Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Lulu’s Locker Rescue is a nonprofit, volunteer-run companion animal rescue working to bring to light the plight of black cats and dogs in shelters as well as the misconceptions surrounding FIV cats. We aim to lower the euthanasia rate of these animals by educating the public and providing foster care as we seek out permanent homes. We are committed to the protection of the misjudged and wrongly stereotyped through compassion and respect, which we believe both animals and human beings deserve.

We are based out of Frankfort, IL, and rescue cats and dogs in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.

Our Adoption Process...

We encourage potential adopters to ask friends, family, and Lulu’s Locker about companion animal experiences in their lives. We want to ensure the animal we adopt to you fits well in your home environment. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about long-term animal care prior to adopting! Please contact us via email or phone 708-325-8581.

Everything we do is for the animals in our care, and is aimed at giving them the best possible chance of finding a permanent home.

- Fill out this online Adoption Application to get the process rolling! Copy and paste this URL into your browser -->

- Once your Application is completed, you will have a phone conversation with an adoption counselor.

- Once you’ve been approved, s/he will fill you in on the personalities, history, and behavior of the animals to allow you to make the best choice possible for your living situation. You can ask your counselor any questions you have regarding health, behavior, and long-term care.

- You and all members of your household will then be invited to visit the foster home or boarding facility where the animal is currently living. If you decide adoption is right for you, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee which covers the spay/neuter, wellness exam, vaccinations, microchip, and heartworm test (dogs only).

- Animals are subject to a home visit prior to completion of the adoption process.

- You will ALWAYS have continued support from Lulu’s Locker after your adoption! We invite you to contact us at any time with questions or concerns!
