Coraline's Info...

I am already spayed, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and not good with dogs.

Coraline's Story...
Coraline is a beautiful 5 year old Turkish Angora with the silkiest white fur and the most beautiful green eyes. This girl has had a difficult life, being the longest cat in St. Sophia's care. She came to us skinny with 2 small kittens (both of which have been adopted). And now Cora is patiently waiting for her turn.

Cora loves to be pet softly, and to stretch out in absolute comfort in a cozy spot on the couch or in the middle of the floor in a sunspot. Coraline would do best in a home with either no children, or older children who would understand that, as a princess, this lovely lady would prefer not to be man-handled or roughed up. Coraline is terrified of dogs and cannot to go a home with them. She would like a nice, quiet home with a woman, as she prefers them over men. Coraline loves catnip, a good snuggle, good food and a nice routine.

Not long after Cora came to us we realized she was constantly itching and scratching at herself and pulling out her hair. Numerous tests, treatments, therapies later, we've learned that sweet Coraline is allergic to everything -- chicken, barley, corn, and most other proteins. She therefore is on a very restricted and enforced diet, and requires steroid therapy on a bi-monthly basis. Cora is also allergic to dust, mites, and other environmental allergens, and needs occasional baths, and needs topical treatments for when she has acne and hot zone flare-ups.

As if this little girl doesn't have enough going on, she also has a slight heart-murmur (grade 1/2) which will need to be monitored if she ever has to undergo anesthesia. And, recently Cora underwent major surgery after another cat in her foster home attacked her. This poor girl had to have staples and stitches on her stomach and back legs and she isn't quite healed yet, but or vet believes she'll be ready for a new home soon.

Because of Cora's very special needs, she is eligible for our Special Homes Program -- this program allows the adopter to submit medical forms for financial assistance for any illnesses or issues that arise as a result of her current medical conditions.

If you are interested in Coraline knowing all of the above, please let us know. Cora's adoption fee is $50. If you would like to meet her or have additional questions, please call or text 847-773-7639 or email us at info.stsff@gmail.com.

About St. Sophia's Forgotten Felines

About Our Rescue Group...

Our Purpose:
St. Sophia’s Forgotten Felines is a non-profit foster-based cat rescue in Addison, IL. Established in late 2010, St. Sophia’s strives to be the best in temporary care for cats in transition. What does this mean? It means that the cats in our care aren’t intended to stay in our care. Our hope is a forever home for every adoptable cat — no more homeless cats!


Our Cats:
We work with local Trap-Neuter-Return organizations. Trap-Neuter-Return (also known as TNR) is a method of humanely trapping unaltered feral cats, neutering them, and releasing them back to the same environment where they were originally found. TNR is promoted by proponents as a humane and more effective alternative for managing and reducing feral cat populations (compared to euthanasia).

While most cats trapped are completely feral (wild, without any domestic socialization), some cats (often kittens, or even adults that have been well cared-for outdoors) can and have become socialized and adoptable. St. Sophia evaluates each cat in TNR programs individually in order to determine what the best forever home would be (whether their home is best outdoors in the wild, or whether they are best suited to an indoor family lifestyle). Each cat is different in many ways, and St. Sophia’s prides itself on being able to determine what’s best for each cat on a one-on-one basis.


Our People:
The Board Members of St. Sophia’s Forgotten Felines have over 15 years of service in feline welfare combined. They come from various backgrounds including marketing, publishing, business, web-design, librarianship, and more.
We are all volunteer-run and are always looking for people to help!

– Kittens (2-5 months) = $100.00
