If you want a lot of cat to love, than come meet your dream girl - ME! I'm a chubby little 8 year old sweetie pie who is adorable and friendly. I'm good with other kitties and am so friendly. I need a home that understands that I cannot have food out all the time, because I LOVE food. Too much for my own good! I have a bit of a hard time grooming myself because of my love of food, so I need regular brushing and help with my grooming. The rescue is trying hard to help me lose weight, but being in a home where I can walk around and have regular playtime will help me lose weight faster! Wanna be weight-loss buddies?


Adoption fee is $75. All of our senior cats are spay/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and have tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia unless otherwise noted. They have tested negative for parasites. All cats have had a full geriatric exam upon entrance to Young at Heart, which includes a full geriatric blood work up. Dentals, lump removals, etc are all done whenever necessary. Any known medical conditions are fully disclosed, and adopters are provided with all medical records. Just like people, cats age, and geriatric conditions and other medical ailments may arise after adoption.

All cats are housed at the Petco in Lake Zurich IL courtesy of the Petco Foundation's grant to Young at Heart, at our small cageless adoption center at Best Friends Pet Care in Lincolnshire IL or in private foster homes within the Chicago area. We welcome out of state adopters that have stellar veterinary references, however we do not ship our sweet old kitties - you have to come here to meet them.

Thank you for considering a senior pet! Can't adopt? Please consider a donation to help us save more beautiful senior souls like these!

About Young At Heart Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Young At Heart Pet Rescue is a non-profit rescue organization specializing in the rescue and rehoming of mature dogs and cats. Our goal is to decrease the euthanasia rate for older, adoptable animals and to educate the public on the benefits of adopting a mature animal.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our dogs are located in foster homes and our cats are located at Lake Zurich's Petco or at Best Friends Pet Care in Prairie View. We are a small group where we believe in quality over quantity, so that each pet we rescue has a wonderful life while it's with us, and an even better life when it is adopted.
