My story

Gemma is a real gem, starting with her emerald green eyes. This beautiful lady is nothing but nice, and she loves human attention! She will greet a stranger as if she's known them for years, running up to say hello. Gemma is also a chatterbox, and loves to talk to her humans. She will make eye contact with you and let out a cute, long meow. If you aren't responding, she will very sweetly tap you with her paw to let you know that she has more to say! She's a real character. Gemma also loves to snuggle up next to her human for some relaxing time, and she enjoys head pets, chin scratches, and even the occasional belly rub! Miss Gemma is also a big fan of naps (who isn't?), and she enjoys snoozing the day away. When she wakes up, it's time for pets, playtime, and then back to napping! She's currently the only kitty in her foster home, but she would be open to another mellow kitty to play and nap with. Beautiful Gemma was born in September 2012.

If you live in Chicago and are interested in learning more about Gemma, please contact Toni McNaughton at tonimcn@rcn.com and Lisa Ward at catladychicago@yahoo.com. Please tell us a bit about your situation, what you are looking for, the composition of your current household (the other humans and/or pets who already live there). Inquires with these questions answered are responded to promptly.

We are always in need of foster homes. If you are not able to adopt, but are interested in fostering or know someone who might be, we would love to hear from you! Please contact Toni McNaughton at tonimcn@rcn.com or Lisa Ward at catladychicago@yahoo.com to learn more.

Additional adoption info

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 Chicago 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. Please keep in mind, we are a very small volunteer group and not set up to do out of state or long distance adoptions. If you live out of the Chicago area, we encourage you to look at your local shelters where there are wonderful animals waiting for homes.
