Facts about Meow Meow

  • Breed: Maine Coon
  • Color: Black (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Long
Meow Meow is a15-pound, plush male black Maine Coon-mix with deep purrs, a huge plume of a tail and golden eyes looking for a loving guardian.

Meow Meow greets his foster family at the door with meows and waits for them to pet him. It took him a few weeks to warm up to them, but once he did ... he was in love. He is still very shy with strangers but gets better with time.

He loves tossing little stuffed cat toys up in the air and running after them. He is pretty energetic; he wrestles and plays with the other playful cats in his foster
home.

Meow is incredibly snuggly and affectionate. If you're on the couch, he's on the couch next to you. If you're brushing your teeth, he's impatiently waiting on the bed for you to join him for a snuggle session. He's a big fan of belly and chest rubs. He wouldn't turn down a head scratch either.

Meow was found stray in Chicago and can be very nervous and jumpy with loud noises and unexpected movements. He is frightened by sudden hand movements so stick toys and feather wands, etc., are out of the question. He enjoys catnip, treats and the laser pointer. Meow Meow was born in 2012.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All cats in Feline Friends Chicago live in foster homes. As part of the adoption process, we have the potential adopter meet the available kitties by putting them directly in touch with the appropriate foster parent(s) to coordinate a day and time for a visit.

Our Adoption Process...

The process for adopting a cat involves a couple of steps.

Step 1 Gather information
We gather information about the potential adopter's situation, what they are looking for, their current household and pets, etc.

Step 2 Cat “Interviews”
Next, we have the potential adopter meet the available kitties, by putting them directly in touch with the appropriate foster parent(s) to coordinate a day and time for a visit.

Step 3 Adoption application
Once the potential adopter has met the kitties, if they decide they want to do an adoption, they fill out our adoption application, which we then process. It takes a couple of days to process the application. Once the application has been processed and approved, the kitties are ready to go home.

Step 4 After the adoption
Once a person has adopted a cat, Feline Friends Chicago continues to stay in touch with the adopter to ensure a smooth transition for both the person and the cat. We remain available for questions and advice.

All of our kitties have been combo-tested for FIV/Feline Leukemia, spayed or neutered, vaccinated for distemper, microchipped, and dewormed. The adoption fee helps to offset the costs we incur to do all of these things.

Please keep in mind, we are a very small volunteer group and not set up to do out of state or long distance adoptions. If you live out of the Chicago area, we encourage you to look at your local shelters where there are wonderful animals waiting for homes.
