My story

Domestic Mediumhair, Born in 2019, Grey Tabby with White, Spayed female, FIV+  
Hi, I'm Lumi. I've got quite a story to tell. I was picked up as a stray on the streets of Chicago, pregnant and alone. I was brought to CACC and the next day I gave birth to 3 kittens. C.A.R.E. rescued me the same day and I've been cared for in a wonderful foster home where I was able to raise my 3 kittens, and my step-kitten, (yes, C.A.R.E. brought me an orphaned kitten and I raised him as my own.) That just speaks to my sweet, loving, and gentle nature. I've been a good mom but now I'd like the opportunity to focus on me, without the worry of being homeless. I'm a happy cat, always purring and I love attention. Sometimes I get.a little excited from too much love and I may nibble a bit. I don't mean any harm. I deserve a good home and a loving family, don't you think? If you are intrigued by my story please fill out an adoption application and come meet me at Follow Your Nose in Evanston. I promise not to disappoint.

 Meet Lumi at Follow Your Nose where she is being fostered at by the store.

Our adoption facility hours and location can be found on our website.

Additional adoption info

See our process and policies on our website. Our fees include a full medical exam by a veterinarian. This includes a Feline Leukemia and FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) test for cats, Rabies and Distemper Vaccines, deworming and Spay/Neuter. Dogs receive a Heartworm Check, Spay/Neuter, Rabies and Distemper Vaccines, Canine Flu Vaccine, deworming, and Kennel Cough preventative. Our modest adoption fees do not cover the procedures and vet work that we provide the animals. We fundraise to make up the difference. Any ongoing medical needs that C.A.R.E. is aware of are explained fully, (including daily medicine costs), to the potential adopter, and become the responsibility of the adopter.
