Boo Radley's Info...
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby||Age:||Adult|
Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo! This magic phrase just might be the key to the heart of our sweet and slightly shy boy. Boo is curious and interested in little mice that rattle and the challenge presented by small toys that disappear into hard to reach spaces--discovering hidden treasures is always great fun. He seems to become more active in the evening which is perfect for when you come home and need a friendly spirit to lift yours! Boo also enjoys a feline buddy to head butt and snuggle up to and he can mix it up with the energy of a kitten when he is feeling confident. He enjoys being loved on, lolling around with tummy exposed, purring loudly. He even tolerates you squishing the cheeks on his big pumpkin head to let him know how cute he is. We hope you can break the homeless jinx that afflicts our gentle, green-eyed Boo! Boo loves other cats and does well with his confidant foster brother Chilly Willy! Boo was born in the fall of 2011

Rescue Group Info...
Feline Friends is a foster-based, no kill, cat rescue organization serving Chicago. We do not have a physical site – we are completely foster-based. To meet any of our cats in the Feline Friends program, we arrange meetings between foster homes and potential adopters. Feline Friends is staffed 100% by volunteers, and is funded entirely by private donations. Feline Friends is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and all donations are tax deductible.
Our mission statement is: “to help alleviate the suffering of homeless pets in Chicago by rescuing, spaying/neutering, and responsibly placing as many animals as possible in permanent homes.
Feline Friends is a 100% foster-based program. The more foster homes we have, the more cats we can rescue. We are continually in need of foster homes, and would love to hear from you if you could provide a foster home. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tax deductible donations can be made via: (1.) www.justgive.org (go through "give now", search for Feline Friends via our EIN 27-1370757, and continue as directed), and (2.) Check (make checks out to "Feline Friends" and send to Feline Friends, c/o Kodros, 345 W. Fullerton Parkway #2003, Chicago, IL 60614.)
All cats in Feline Friends 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.
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 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.
We serve Chicago.
