Story
Polky is very polite. She comes to the door to greet her fosterer when they come home or waits outside a closed door if they are in the other room. Polky hardly meows, and when she does it's quiet. She doesn't like being pet much or being picked up but she likes to curl next to her fosterer on the couch and sleep by their feet at night . Polky spends most of the time napping around the house, usually following the humans from room to room. Although Polky is on meds for anxiety and she can be easily spooked by new sudden sounds and movements, she has not been very shy. She has a curious and playful personality. When the humans are around, she always comes to greet new guests and new things they present to her. Her favorite things right now are getting just the right napping spot, sitting on laptops, head scratches, catnip and playing with her little mouse-wand toy. She can be very affectionate in her own way, by either checking up on the humans after they use the restroom, bringing small offerings (crumpled paper again!), and even cuddling with them in their sleep. We highly recommend Polky's friendship for experienced cat owners that have a consistent environment/ routine. When given the chance, she can be the sweetest little bean. She likes to lie next to her fosterer's leg or next to her shoes. Polky greets her fosterer at the door when she comes home by rolling around. She is becoming a lapcat too.

Story
Felicity is a bit on guard when she meets new people, but when you get to know her, she becomes a real sweetheart. She follows her favorite fosterer around the house, and she loves neck and chin scratches... though she'll also tell you when to stop. She is suspicious of the fishing pole toy, but loves playing with fuzzy ball toys (though her absolute favorite activity is napping, often next to you on the bed.) If you're looking for a sweet companion who knows what she wants, consider adopting Felicity!

Good with cats, Needs experienced adopter, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
Handsome Ollie Wiedel is a very shy, but curious boy who would make an excellent companion for other cats. While he remains a little unsure of people, he is very interested in playing with wire and ribbon toys, and he loves to play-wrestle with other cats. Ollie is still learning how to interact with people, so he's not big on being pet or held. He will typically retreat to a safe space when somone gets too close for his comfort, but he has never reacted aggressively, (all flight, no fight.) Ollie has made massive improvements over the last few weeks, going from hiding when anyone was home to active play and letting humans into his personal bubble. He would really thrive in a home with patient, adult humans and other cats. Ollie W 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.

Story
Pilar is very sweet and playful and she likes to be around people, often taking an interest in what they are doing. She will never be far from either her fosterer or their roommate. She's very talkative--usually this means she wants attention. She is curious and likes to explore. She is also tough yet sometimes afraid of large or unknown objects. Generally, she does not like to be pet for too long. She has occasional bursts of energy where she will run around the apartment, mostly at night. She likes to look out of the window, lounge around but she is often ready to play.

Story
Big Daddy is a gentle sweetheart who loves chin/cheek/head scratching. He might be shy at the beginning but he can't help purring like a motorboat when you start petting him. After coming out of his shell, Dig Daddy is very vocal and will let you know when he wants food or attention with endless patience, rubbing on your legs, following you around the house and staring at you with his cutest light blue eyes. Big Daddy often enjoys his alone time in his favorite cardboard bed. His fosters think he will do well in a relatively quiet home.

Story
Lalo is a sweet boy I love him very much I found him in the back part of my yard when he was a baby I can't have him with me because my neighbor is a very problematic person it's a very long story but because of her I can't let him go out in my yard because I'm afraid that he will do something to him...and Lalo really enjoys being outside but lately I haven't left him anymore. I would really like to know that he will find a home where he will be loved as much as we do. It will hurt a lot when he leaves but it will Which is the best, my husband told me to take him to a shelter but I don't want to imagine him in a cage waiting for someone, I hope he finds a new home soon.

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
