My story

Big Ben is a stocky, self-assured cat with friendly disposition and a healthy appetite.

If you want to interact with him, he’ll be happy to oblige.

If you’re busy elsewhere, he’ll veg out on the window sill or under the bed or in a comfortable chair.

He is a very affectionate cat.

Big Ben has tested positive for FiV but can still live a long, healthy and happy life and live safely with other cats who are spayed or neutered. He can also live safely with other household pets.

More about this rescue

Hyde Park Cats is a local, all volunteer group dedicated to helping stray and homeless cats in and around Chicago's Hyde Park. We received our 501©(3) status in 2014 and we were founded in 2008. See all our adoptable kitties on our webpage: All of our cats are in loving foster homes, which means the cat or cats you adopt will be familiar with the sounds, smells and movements of life in a home and accustomed to living with humans. Our adoptable have been interacting on a daily basis with people who know this particular cat intimately, and the foster mom or dad can tell you all about the cat's individual personality, habits, preferences. You can't judge a cat by its cover! And while we can't predict the future or know everything about a cat, we can help you choose the cat who is right for you. We have an adoption application and an adoption fee. This fee goes towards covering their vet costs. All cats adopted out by us are neutered/spayed, micro-chipped, tested for FIV/FeLV, and treated for fleas and worms. Email for more information on how to adopt, volunteer, or foster with us!
