Facts about Rogue

  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult

  • Hair: Short
FOSTERED IN: Chicago, IL 60641
AGE: 3 Years (Est. DOB: 2013)

Rogue was found with her two 4-6 month old kittens in an industrial area.

Rogue was likely never completely socialized, so she has some quirks about her. Rogue is currently being fostered with two senior female cats and she gets along with them famously. She also was very good with her own kittens before they were adopted out. She is being fostered in a home with a dog, but hasn’t completely been introduced to her. We believe she would adapt to a cat-savvy dog. Rogue gets very stressed out with excessive handling. She is not comfortable being picked up and it can very very difficult to get her into her carrier. She does love less intrusive handling and will let you scratch and pet her head indefinitely. She has a bit of a playful side and likes to hide in the dark and pounce on her foster mom’s feet at feeding time in the morning. She also likes to play with toys especially mice that jingle and balls. She also likes to play with wand toys but will randomly act afraid of them. She only ever scratches on her cardboard scratching pad. She’s quite the talker and will let her foster mom know that her food bowl is still empty every 3 seconds until it’s ready. She will also mention if her water bowl needs to be filled.

Rogue will need to be adopted by an experienced cat owner. She will need time to trust her new home, but she has done really well in her foster home. She will always have some quirks related to her lack of socialization. She can be a bit unpredictable so she should not go to homes with children. Something that she would tolerate yesterday she might not tolerate today. Things that did not stress her out yesterday, might stress her out today. She would make a fabulous companion for another cat(s).

One day Rogue figured out how to open the door to her “suite.” She went right to the kitchen to demand to be fed. Her foster mom didn’t even notice it was her until she looked down. She didn’t bother looking around or meeting any of other animals, she just went straight to the food.

Her foster mom says she can be chatty and opinionated and you might even say bossy, but also scared and shy. Rogue also has a bit of a silly and playful side.

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!
