Story
Talk about a lovely girl. Just like her name, she is a blossoming flower bud. Calla Lily is a darling girl that came to us in pretty beat up shape. She was possibly hit by a car or suffered a tremendous fall. This caused her diaphragm to experience a horrendous hernia. Thus causing her organs and colon to push into her chest cavity. She lived with this injury for almost 2 weeks before it was finally treated. Our vert discovered her broken ribs and injuries via an xray. She got to work real quick and Calla Lily was patched up with a well planned out surgery. She pushed through and after 2 full days or rest and recoup, this girl is doing amazing. Calla Lily was tested at the time of surgery for FIV and did test positive. Even with that diagnosis she is healing extremely well, is in high spirits and cant wait to get adopted.  She loves people, kids and spending time with a family. Calla Lily likes to cuddle under blankets and hang out in cozy warm spots. This darling still has a few weeks of recovery ahead of her but is already looking forward to being adopted. Calla Lily did not seem to mind dogs either.  Please contact us to learn even more!

Story
This gorgeous girl was found outside some years ago by a lovely family that has cared for her inside and outside of their home. As the years have gone by it became obvious that Luna wants to be in a quieter home without other pets. Luna enjoys spending time with her favorite people. Her love language is quality time. Luna is a mama cat and she has mothered many litters. This is her first season being spayed and free of that responsibility. Lunas babies were placed through our rescue and she sure had beautiful kittens. This mama is looking for a cat savvy home that enjoys having a companion cat indoors plus out doors in the garden. Luna regularly asked to go outside and always comes back to her home. Although there is a transition time we believe she would enjoy exploring the great outdoors still. Luna would do best with older children preferably teenage years and up , 14 plus. Luna has been known to sometimes be sensitive around young men and other cats/dogs. She much prefers a person she knows well and being the main pet in the home. Luna has a loving personality and would brighten and room in someones home.

Jesper the jester! This sweetie is 7 months old and full of life. Talk about a loud, silly, playful and affectionate kitty. He and his brother Tolya are the evenings entertainment always! Jesper enjoys to run, explore, eat treats and play with all kinds of toys!    Jesper originates from the Waukegan area and was likely a stray. We took him and his 4 siblings in and had an amazing foster hand raise them into loving people. They will brighten any home!   Here is a link to some footage of these sweet babies: https://www.instagram.com/reel/Cy_mkUGuJ9i/?igshid=MzRlODBiNWFlZA==   Our policy is that kittens go in pairs especially when born into even numbered litters. The only exception is an odd numbered litter.  In cases with a singled out kitten they must go to an adopter that has a companion cat already.** Please contact us to learn more.

Story
Putting my feelers out there as I really want to keep him out of a shelter. Milo is a 4 year old DSH who is in need of a new home. He is a total love bug who is always seeking human attention. He would thrive in a home where there is often someone around. After having to move back in with my parents last year, he started turning on my other cat. I have tried medication, pheromones, enriching his environment and vet intervention, but nothing has worked. It's a tough decision, but it's no longer fair to keep them both together. I would recommend he be in a single-cat household where he can have all the attention.

Story
Fendeo or Fenny, showed up at a friend's campsite this summer while i was working at the campgrounds in Michigan. She is super sweet, lovable, loves people and attention. She loves to snuggle. The only reason I am rehoming her is because she does not get along with my other female cat. I am not sure of her age, guessing now around 1.5 years. She did have kittens November 3rd, 2023, they have all been rehomed.

Story
Diddy is a sweet cat, but doesn't like my new puppy or newest male cat. He was fine with my large dog and other cat but now that we have more he isn't behaving. He loves kids and people, will sleep with you at night, rubs all over your face, loves to be pet and held. Needs to be the only pet in the home as he has cat anxiety and will pee if he doesn't like the other animals. He needs to be on Royal Cannin S/O calming food for his bladder.
