Story
Where do we start with Spyder? She is the most adaptable, gentle, & sweetest girl we have taken in. She came form Chicago Animal Shelter with 5 other animals when their owner passed away. She was not in the best condition but has since improved & is on the mend. She suffered form alopecia which seems to have resolved as well. She is social, dog, cat, kid friendly, & has such a silly & funny personality. She LOVES to play, hang with the other animals, & just rest in sunny spots throughout the house. This cat is very deserving & promises to bring so much love & joy to any household. We estimate her to be between 4-8 but will get a better number nailed down after her vetting. Give this petite angel a chance & we promise, you will not regret it!

Story
FOSTERED IN: Chicago, IL 60617 ESTIMATED DOB: 2020 COLOR/BREED: Black Shorthair KIDS: Teenage + DOGS: Yes CATS: Females HISTORY: Malcolm was an outdoor stray. His foster tries to care for and get as many of the neighborhood strays fixed as she can. Malcolm had been around for a few years but was incredibly friendly and kept asking to come inside, so his caretaker/foster couldn’t say no. Malcolm is FIV+ and FeLV+ Upon intake to Lulu’s he had bloodwork done that showed he was healthy enough to have the dental he desperately needed. ABOUT: If only Malcolm could tell us his story. His foster said he was one of the dominant males in the neighborhood prowling the neighborhood for about 5 years before he was neutered. Malcolm is both FIV and Feline Leukemia (FeLV) positive. Because FeLV is easily transmitted to other cats, he will need to be an only cat or live in a home with another FeLV positive cat. The lifespan of cats with FeLV can vary widely, but overall is unknown, so he will need a special adopter willing to love him for whatever time this world grants him. Malcolm is very low energy and likes to spend most of his time perfecting his napping skills. He likes his meals to be served on time and if you are late he will come get you and tell you that it is time. His foster used the following words to describe him: Gentlemanly, Sweet, Affectionate, Stoic, Quiet. Malcolm prefers to hide in unknown situations so he might take a little bit of time to warm up to his new family. His foster said he seems especially wary of teenage boys, so we aren’t sure if something happened in his years on the street to make him more nervous around males. He will likely be more attracted to females. Once he knows you he loves pets and cuddles and even likes to be held! Malcolm does great with the female cat in the house. He loves to groom her and sleep with her, but he doesn’t do as well with males. He generally ignores the large and small breed dogs, but he will curl up next to them for a nap so he would do very well in homes with cat-friendly dogs. He will be most comfortable in an adults only home as he isn’t curious about new things and instead chooses to hide until they are over. Do you have room in your home and heart for this special boy? The first step is to fill out our adoption application. More information and our adoption application can be found at www.luluslockerrescue.org.

Story
FOSTERED IN: Chicago, IL 60654 ESTIMATED DOB: 2017 COLOR/BREED: Orange Tabby Shorthair KIDS: Older DOGS: Unknown CATS: Required HISTORY: Henry2 came to us from an animal control facility in NW Indiana. ABOUT: Henry2 is a very docile, sweet, agreeable kitty. Henry2 is very playful and enjoys all kinds of toys, but his fishing pole is his favorite. He isn’t a bother when he wants to play, he just calmly sits in front of you until you get the hint. He will play as long as you will, but he accepts when playtime is over. Henry2 also enjoys watching TV (seriously) so once playtime is over he is happy to curl up next to you to watch your favorite show. Henry2 loves to be pet all over, and even has a cute quirk that he won’t start eating until you give him a few pets. Henry2 likes to have a little bit of time to warm up to new people before he wants to be pet by them, but he doesn’t run and hide. He is very curious and likes to watch the new people for a bit, before asking for some pets. Henry2 will do best in a home that loves to talk to him and give him pets and scratches and share his constant company (because he will always be nearby), but understands that Henry2 won’t be the cat who wants to be picked up, carried around, and smothered. Henry2 has done excellent with the resident cats in his foster home. He loves to snuggle with them at nap time and is happy to match their play style. He interacts more calmly with relaxed cats, and loves a good roughhouse with the cat who prefers that play style. Henry2 never initiates rough play, but he is happy to step up to the plate if it is offered to him. Henry2 needs to be adopted into a home with at least 1 resident cat. Having cat buddies around makes him feel comfortable and confident. He would be a great playmate or companion to another cat. Henry2 is not being fostered with dogs, but his foster thinks he may do ok in homes with the calmest of dogs who won’t be interested in him. Henry2 is also not being fostered with children. He will likely do OK in calm, predictable homes with older children who will give him gentle pets and play with him, but who can understand he won’t want to be treated like a toy. If you think this easygoing, friendly, loving boy is a just what your home is missing you can find information on adoption and our adoption application on our website: www.luluslockerrescue.org. Henry2 is a very sweet, mellow, yet playful, agreeable kitty. He enjoys gentle attention from people, but he will take a little time to develop trust with new people. He’s the type of guy that doesn’t demand to be touched, but will always be somewhere close by. He likes to be pet and brushed when he has already chosen a spot to settle in and lie down. He doesn’t like commotion or loud voices inside his home, but he has adapted to the noises of city life with no problem. Henry2 loves when someone has time to play with him using the wand toy or laser pointer. He is not needy for playtime and will entertain himself with toys or wait patiently for you when he is feeling playful. His foster mom said he is the perfect houseguest and never gets into any mischief or trouble. Henry2 is currently being fostered with cats and he gets along very well with them and enjoys interacting and snuggling with them. We will require that Henry2 be adopted into a home with a welcoming, resident cat. Henry2 will prefer a more predictable home with less activity. We do not feel that homes with young, active children will be ideal for him. We do not know how Henry2 does with dogs, but we think a home without dogs will suit him best. Are you interested in adopting a kitty that you can watch blossom? Henry2 is ready to find his patient, calm, forever home. The first step in our adoption process is to complete the adoption application. More information and our adoption application can be found at www.luluslockerrescue.org. Henry2 really does like to watch TV: https://youtube.com/shorts/aQlqA-I2DHY?feature=share Henry2 appreciates some good pets: https://youtu.be/oK-ykTicgsU Henry2 playing with the resident cat: https://youtube.com/shorts/OHr1xIxKLqU Henry2 watches his favorite show: https://youtube.com/shorts/S3ZphU8W0WU

FOSTERED IN: Frankfort, IL 60423 ESTIMATED DOB: 09/2019 COLOR/BREED: Tabby and White Shorthair KIDS: Yes DOGS: Unknown CATS: Some HISTORY: Disney was from a hoarding situation and was transferred to us from an animal control facility. ABOUT: Disney’s foster describes him as “the friendliness of a dog, with the ease of a cat.” Disney is very affectionate, he loves attention and is even happy being held and hugged. He doesn’t have any off-limits petting zones, including the belly. Disney is a confident cat, so he will likely serve as the welcoming committee to any guests or visitors that you have. Disney loves being brushed. He is not much into toys. Disney is not being fostered with young children, but he loves everyone so we think he would do great with kids. Disney was previously housed at our adoption center where he did well with some cats, but was a little too forward with others and could push their buttons as he doesn’t seem to respect personal space. People are the love of his life, so he would be perfectly content as an only cat. We do not know how Disney would do in a home with a dog. Disney has a heart murmur. He had a cardiology exam which stated: Progressive left heart enlargement and CHF due to MVD are NOT likely to develop in this patient since there is only a mild mitral valve insufficiency. Disney is FIV+ Is an affectionate, handsome boy exactly what you are looking for? Fill out the adoption application on our website www.luluslockerrescue.org.

FOSTERED IN: Schererville, IN 46375 ESTIMATED DOB: 08/2011 COLOR/BREED: Orange Tabby Shorthair KIDS: Older DOGS: Unknown CATS: Yes HISTORY: Mandarin came to us from a suburban animal control facility. ABOUT: Mandarin loves attention and will happily accept it from everyone, including visitors, but he does not enjoy being held or hugged. He does love to take naps on your lap. Mandarin was in a temporary foster home who said he is very easy to care for. He is happy to entertain himself while you are gone, but he loves interaction and even likes to join in on zoom conference calls. He is a very hard worker and likes to make biscuits everywhere. Mandarin is around 12 years old but still has a playful side and enjoys light beams and balls in particular. He is not afraid to explore or try new things. Mandarin also enjoys drinking out of the giant, cool, water bowl in the bathroom…if you know what we mean. Mandarin hasn’t been fostered with children. In his foster home he did meet a 14 year old and loved all the attention, but he doesn’t like to be picked up so he would do best with older children who can respect his preferences. Mandarin has been housed in our adoption center and he does very well with the other cats. Mandarin has been diagnosed with mild Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy or HCM. He currently does not take any medication for this condition, but it was recommended that he receive a repeat echocardiogram in 9-12 months to monitor progress. The prognosis for HCM is variable. Mandarin’s foster home described him as clean, friendly, mellow, playful, and independent. If this sounds like a good match for your home the first step is to fill out our adoption application. More information and our adoption application can be found at www.luluslockerrescue.org.

FOSTERED IN: Adoption Center - Frankfort, IL 60423 ESTIMATED DOB: August 2023 COLOR/BREED: Black Shorthair KIDS: Likely DOGS: Unknown CATS: Yes HISTORY: Burrito and her family (momma Taco Bell and sisters Chalupa and Gordita) were surrendered to a shelter and then transferred to our care. ABOUT: Burrito is a darling girl with a positive, happy go lucky attitude. She'll be there to greet you at the door and ask his your day went, but won't smother you to the point where it's annoying. She's social and friendly, and while hasn't quite figured out how to sit still on your lap, she will constantly rub against your legs when you're seated, politely asking for attention. Her rhythmic, soothing purrs fill an entire room when she's content. When you start stroking her, she may just even flop over and show you her belly, which (so long as you aren't too rough) you ARE allowed to touch! Burrito, like any youngster, likes to play, climb and explore, but she's not overly rowdy. She really has a charming, good-natured attitude, so should do well with respectful, cat savvy children. Burrito was raised with her mom and sisters, so we think she'd really enjoy a kind kitty companion in her new home (or consider adopting her with one of her family members).

FOSTERED IN: Adoption Center - Frankfort, IL 60423 ESTIMATED DOB: February 2023 COLOR/BREED: Black Shorthair KIDS: Likely DOGS: Unknown CATS: Yes HISTORY: Taco Bell and her three kittens (Burrito, Chalupa and Gordita) were surrendered to a shelter and then transferred to our care. ABOUT: Taco Bell is a young momma cat to three little mini-me versions of herself. She is a kind, gentle soul who would integrate seamlessly into just about any household. When you walk through the door, Taco Bell will be there to greet you calmly and give you a sweet leg rub to welcome you home. She is perfectly content spending the daytime by herself, lounging in her cat tower, but also truly enjoys the company of people and will often make an appearance to be in the company of her family. While she doesn't seem to want to sit in your lap, she is quite fond of rubbing all over her humans when she's in an affectionate mood. Her wild and crazy days are behind her, but she does still engage in playtime either with toys or her kittens. Taco Bell is a low maintenance, easy going gal who would be great for retirees, first time cat owners, families and really just about any home.
