Story
Snowy, also known as Snowflake, was a wonderful addition to our family. He is funny, playful, and most importantly loves to cuddle and be cuddled. He’s a rare breed between a Scottish fold and British shorthair. His little in folded ears are what drew us into him, aside from his beautiful fur. We know you’ll love him twice as much as we do.

Story
Meet Nancy, a captivating 5-year-old British Shorthair with a striking black and brown coat that exudes elegance. This feline beauty is as enigmatic as she is charming, possessing a unique personality that requires a special touch. Nancy's past experiences have made her a bit avoidant with new people, but for the patient and understanding cat lover, she unveils a world of warmth and affection. Once trust is established, Nancy transforms into a delightful companion, expressing her fondness by gently rubbing against your legs. One of Nancy's most endearing qualities is her deep love for food. This charming cat is highly food-motivated, making mealtime an excellent opportunity to bond with her. Her culinary enthusiasm provides a gateway to her heart, and she'll undoubtedly appreciate a caring owner who understands the way to it. Nancy is on the lookout for an experienced cat owner, someone who comprehends the nuances of dealing with shy cats. Patience, kindness, and a gentle approach are key to unlocking the true potential of this lovely British Shorthair. If you're up for the challenge and ready to embark on a journey of building trust and companionship, Nancy could be the perfect addition to your feline-loving family.

Story
We rescued Dolly Purrton from Chicago Animal Control a few months ago. She's a 1-year old brown tabby who is naturally petite (8 lbs) and is adorable. She was with another cat at the shelter that had been adopted by another family already. When we got her, she was in very bad shape. She had eye, ear, and respiratory infections, and we thought she wasn't going to make it for a while, but we nursed her back to full health. She is incredibly sweet with us and our kids. She likes to play for long periods of time with wands and balls, but also loves to snuggle on laps, and will sleep on you or next to you in bed. She loves wet food and meat tubes, but does not seem to like crunchy treats. Unfortunately, she and our current cats do not get along. Although she was with other cats previously, she has shown aggression towards our two. We think she is a great cat, and we are very glad we rescued her, but she does not seem like a good fit for our family. She would be a fantastic fit with a fam

Story
They are 7 months old and they are the kittens of our adult cat. They don't really have names we just have ways to differentiate. They are all potty trained and females and they get along with dogs too. The striped one is Kraj Szata and she is very affectionate and sweet with dogs and other cats. Shes very quiet and independent. She keeps to her self but sometimes shell come up to you for attention. She has two sisters that I'm also trying to find a home for because it's been so long I don't know how much more time I can keep them all. The first black one is Czarnuszka and she is the opposite of the others she's very affectionate and she will come up to you always for pets and scratches. She also will follow you everywhere and she loves to purr! The second black one is Biała- Brzuszka and she is similar to the striped one but she's more affectionate but not as affectionate as Czarnuszka. If possible when choosing Czarnuszka make sure she has a companion as shes very social.
