BOOTS’ HISTORY: Boots was originally in an open cat room animal control, and was then adopted into a multiple (6) cat household. He was originally fantastic with the other cats. Boots was then returned due to a change in living situation. We tried to re-introduce him to a group of cats (Some of which he lived with in the adoptive home). Completely unexpectedly Boots did not handle the change well and he refused to eat. He refused to eat to the point that he put himself into organ failure and had to be hospitalized. At the vet he continued to refuse to eat and deteriorate at the vet and it was decided that it would be best to end his suffering. His foster parents (Two of our co founders Dawn and Mike) went to the vet to spend some time with him, and during that time he started purring and nuzzling them. The vet saw this and suggested they take him home for the weekend. He was kept by himself and given all kinds of love and he slowly started eating again and gained strength. After he resumed eating his values went back to normal! They tried again to introduce him to some of his former housemates and he would again just hide and refuse to eat, so Boots was put in a room by himself.

LADY’S HISTORY: Lady was originally adopted as a kitten from CACC. She was brought back to CACC and was rescued by Lulu’s through CRISP. Lady had not seen another cat since she was adopted as a kitten.

Now, the love story. Lady was brought to Dawn and Mike’s house where one suggested trying to put her with Boots. They weren’t sure how it would go but figured it would be worth a try, they could always be separated. When they set Lady down, the cats took one look at each other and ran to hide...under the to each other! (Not joking) Surprisingly they took to each other very quickly. Boots continued to eat, and they stopped hiding from each other. They aren’t always attached at the hip, but they give eachother a confidence and vigor that we can’t understand nor explain.

Boots and Lady must be adopted together as a pair. They will need a patient owner who is willing to follow our advice during the transition to their new home. We expect it will take a little while before they become completely comfortable in their new home, but once they get comfortable they are two fabulous outgoing, affectionate cats. Ideally we would love to find them a home with no other cats, but we would be willing to adopt them to homes with easy going cat-friendly cats.

Boots and Lady both love attention from people and will come right up to you to rub and nuzzle against you. If you sit down you’re probably going to end up with two cats in your lap. They’re the type of cats who will probably “help” you around the house.

Could you be that special home these kitties are waiting for? Boots: FIV+ Lady: FIV-

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!
