  • Age: Young

Candy, did someone say candy? Who doesn’t love candy? Well, even if you don’t have a sweet tooth, you will love this candy cat! Meet Tootsie Roll, or Tootsie for short, the super sweet mama cat, who took great care of her babies after her owner put her and her 5 babies in a cardboard box and put them in the backyard because she decided she couldn’t be bothered with them anymore…how sad is that? The babies were only 1 week old when, thankfully, a nice person got in touch with us and we happily brought the entire family into a nice safe foster home for the babies to grow up and be ready to find their forever homes! So now, months after Tootsie's babies have all been adopted, Tootsie still waits patiently for HER turn for a forever home too.

Tootsie is a gorgeous tabby tuxedo with beautiful, bright, green eyes. Her coat is thick and plush, and she wears cute little white socks. Her foster mom says: She is so pretty, I just love looking at her. She's like 'eye candy'!

Tootsie has a generally quiet demeanor. She doesn’t mind being held, but doesn’t seek it out. She loves to be petted, and will jump up on the couch next to you, or into your lap, to watch TV or read with you. When you walk into the room she will rub against your legs, then fall on her back, as if to say "okay, it's belly rub time, so pet me, pet me!"

Tootsie is a sweet girl who loved hanging out with her babies; however, she can be frightened of and unfriendly towards other adult cats. Tootsie, therefore, will be happiest in a home where she can be the queen of her own castle, at least as far as the feline population goes. She has sporadically been around children and seems to be okay with them. If you're looking for a low-maintenance, no-drama, companion kitty for a one-on-one relationship, Tootsie Roll is looking for you! Give us a call soon and come and meet her!

Tootsie Roll’s estimated date of birth is 1/5/15. Her adoption fee of $115 includes: comprehensive vet exam, FVRCP vaccination, rabies vaccination, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg), routine deworming, flea control, microchip and spay.

About Adopt-A-Pet, Inc.

About Our Shelter...

ADOPT-A-PET is an all-volunteer non-profit animal shelter/adoption agency dedicated to saving the lives of lost, abandoned or otherwise homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens and placing them into permanent, loving homes.

ADOPT-A-PET provides a safe refuge and a second chance for unclaimed animals from various municipal pounds and, space permitting, accepts other homeless, neglected or injured animals from their rescuers.

ADOPT-A-PET was founded in 1981, and has since saved the lives of over 15,000 animals. All animals at Adopt-A-Pet are found permanent loving homes. Animals remain with us for as long as it takes to find them a suitable permanent new home.

ADOPT-A-PET does not own a shelter facility. All of our animals are boarded at co-operating animal hospitals or in volunteer foster homes until they are adopted by their new families.

ADOPT-A-PET provides all necessary medical care for every animal. All animals are health-checked, vaccinated, treated for medical problems and spayed/neutered.

ADOPT-A-PET is available for educational speaking engagements to schools and community groups in Chicago or the suburbs to promote proper pet care, compassion for animals, and the importance of spaying and neutering.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment only, after an application has been submitted.

Occasional public weekend adoption events are posted on the Home Page of our website: www.adoptapet-il.org

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process: Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment, after an application has been submitted.

How to start the process: Contact us by email or phone. An adoption counselor will return your message within 1-2 days. You will be asked to fill out an application that will ask for personal information about your family, your home and about the kind of pet you're looking for. Vet references, personal references and landlord information (if applicable) is required. You can also download an application from our website. Once you return the application, an adoption counselor will call you back for a more thorough interview, again within 1-2 days. Sometimes it may take a little longer as we're all volunteers and sometimes it gets very busy. Assuming the pet you're interested in appears to be a match for you, a meeting will then be set up. For some animals, a home check may be required. If an adoption takes place, you will be asked to sign a contract and pay an adoption fee. Each animal's individual adoption fee is posted in its description on our websites.
