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
Tigger was surrendered to Famous Fido Rescue after his guardian died. He had no one to step up and care for him and he was quite sad to leave his whole world behind. It’s taken a bit for Tigger to come out of his shell, he was initially so scared. He has blossomed into a really gorgeous and friendly boy and anyone would be so lucky to have his companionship. Tigger loves perching in his cat tree, taking naps, and generally looking fabulous.

Story
Are you ready to open your heart to an extra special feline friend? Look no further than Max, a 3.5-year-old male cat with a heart of gold and a unique condition: moderate cerebellar hypoplasia (CH). Cerebellar hypoplasia (CH) is a neurological condition where the cerebellum, the part of the brain responsible for coordination and balance, is underdeveloped. This underdevelopment can lead to symptoms such as tremors, uncoordinated movements, and difficulty with balance and spatial awareness. Cats with moderate cerebellar hypoplasia can still lead happy and fulfilling lives, especially in homes where they receive understanding and supportive care. Despite his condition, Max is a complete love bug who adores snuggling up right beside you and purring contentedly. While he may not be the rough-and-tumble type, he's definitely up for some gentle playtime, especially if it involves receiving pets and cuddles. His CH may somewhat limit him, but he's far from letting it hold him back. He's a pro at using the litter box and has no trouble enjoying his meals. Plus, he's quite adept at getting around, although he does need to avoid stairs and any over-enthusiastic dogs who might try to chase him. This observant and gentle soul is fantastic with kids and would likely do well with other calm animals who understand his needs. Max is truly the master of the love flop, ready to give you all the affection his big heart holds. Reach out to us today to learn more about welcoming Max into your loving home! For more information, email info@ahconnects.org or call us at 847-697-2880 x: 0, and the staff will be happy to help you. I hope to meet you soon! Our cats and kittens go home spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up to date on core vaccines, flea, and tick preventatives. Their adoption also includes a free-vet exam at one of our participating veterinarians.
