Facts about Imah and Evie

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Imah and Evie are an adorable mother-daughter pair. They were rescued from a municipal shelter. Imah had three kittens, though the other two were already adopted. They were tiny, but with lots of food and fun in a foster home, they have blossomed into awesome kitties.

Imah is the mama cat. She's about 1 year old (teenage pregnancy-- no one ever had "the talk" with her) and a petite girl. She's just super tiny and looks like a kitten. She is eating all she can to fatten up! She adores headbutts and pets, but she doesn't like to be held and will wiggle out of arms. Instead, she wants to chill next to you while you type on the computer and get cuddles. She also loves toys and wrestling with her daughter. She is a "torbie"-- a brown tabby with some tortoiseshell mixed in, giving her a beautiful red color.

Evie is a twelve week-old kitten who is about as cute as can be. She is a tortoiseshell kitten, though you barely know it since she is a constant blur of movement. She is always moving! She is quite the parkour expert-- climbing, jumping, and totally fearless. She loves to play with people, though she's not cuddly until she is exhausted. She is more interested in interacting, carrying her toys around, and exploring. She does lay down on her foster dad's lap once she's tired out, and she does like petting. She is a riot and very smart.

While we will consider splitting this pair, first priority will be to adopters interested in them as a pair. They do get along very well. Also, Evie *must* be adopted into a home with another young cat if she is not with her mom (who is very young herself). Their adoption fee is $170 for the pair or $85 each. The adoption fee includes their spays, microchips, age-appropriate shots, deworming, flea treatment, virus testing, and general exams.

About Tree House Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

Tree House is a humane organization that promotes the inherent value of every animal and strives to educate the public about proper and responsible animal care, with a focus on the care and placement of stray cats with special physical and emotional needs. We are committed to finding every healthy and treatable animal a home.

Tree House was founded in 1971 and since that time we have expanded and enhanced our programs and services to become the largest, no-kill, cageless shelter for sick, injured, abused and neglected cats in the Chicagoland area. To date we have found homes for nearly 14,000 cats. In addition to our focus on the rehabilitation and adoption of stray cats, we offer many other valuable programs and services, including our Free Spay/Neuter Program, Pet Loss Grief Support Group, Humane Investigations Team, Youth Volunteer Program, Animal-Assisted Therapy, Behavior Hotline, Pet Food Pantry, and Education Outreach Program.

Our Adoption Process...

At Tree House, trained adoption counselors interview prospective adopters to understand their needs, and then adopters are escorted to the Adoption Floor to choose their future friend. Adopters are encouraged to take as much time as they need to find a cat. All adoption applications stay on file for three months so please don't feel that you need to rush to choose a companion cat right away.

Your adoption fee of $85 covers the cost of your cat's care at Tree House including: spay or neuter, deworming, flea treatment, FIV and FeLV testing, AVID microchip, veterinary examination, and all necessary vaccinations. We also give a 30-day health guarantee on all of our adoptions.
