Joe's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with cats.

Joe's Story...
I was found at a construction site in 2004 and removed from a sump pump that was not in use yet. I was a very wild little guy at first and would hiss at everyone, but after I realized that humans were only trying to help me, I decided to just give them a try. My foster mom was very patient, so I rewarded her by deciding to be the friendliest kitten in the world! I get along well with the other cats at my foster home, and would like to be adopted with one of them, but it’s not mandatory. I sustained a crushing injury to my tail during my rescue, and part of my tail had to be amputated, but I am very healthy and I still wag my little stub. It doesn’t bother me, but sometimes I think the reason I haven’t been chosen yet is because I’m not perfect. I have another cute “trick” – I sit up on my hind legs and look like a little prairie dog. If you are interested in adopting me, call Norma at (630) 897-8738.

About Paws and Purrs Humane Society

About Our Rescue Group...

Paws and Purrs Humane Society is a no-kill, not-for-profit organization dedicated to finding good homes for homeless cats and kittens. We are a small, all volunteer group providing veterinary care, socialization, and lots of TLC to our animals until they are matched with their forever guardians. Paws and Purrs charges must be sterilized to avoid increasing the overpopulation of unwanted animals. All of our cats and kittens live in foster homes and are not caged in a shelter. Those we've helped include days old kittens, strays found outside near death, and, of course, all ages of animals who were abandoned or surrendered by their owners.

Paws and Purrs sends each cat and kitten home with a information booklet covering topics of general interest to adopters. Further, we have an excellent after care program designed to insure that animals adopted from us are living happily ever after in their forever homes. We're a continuing resource for our adopters and are always available to consult on any issues the adopters would like to discuss.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our cats and kittens live in foster homes. We will adopt out of the foster homes whenever we can coordinate all parties involved. We also hold adoption events the second Saturday of the month at the North Aurora Petco, 1660 Orchard Gateway Blvd (behind the North Aurora Auto Mall), North Aurora 60542 and the last Sunday of the month at the Oswego Petco. 3066 Route 34, Oswego 60543.

Our Adoption Process...

Paws and Purrs is committed to finding permanent loving homes for our cats and kittens. We do our utmost to match adopters with the cat(s) or kitten(s) that will be purrfect new members of their family. Because all of our felines live in foster care and are not caged in shelters, we know their personalities and the home environment in which they are most likely to thrive.
