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.

Story
Hi, I'm Milo! I am approximately 2-3 years old and was rescued off my current owner's front porch. I am looking for a new home because my fur sister and I haven't been able to get along, but I am very sweet and loving to my humans. Bonus: I am leash trained and know how to sit on command! My humans will also give you my litterbox, food, and bed. I love toys, lap naps, being brushed, catnip, affection, and most importantly, food - I'll eat anything I can get my paws on and smells good! However, I do not like other cats - I need to be king of my castle! I am very adventurous, clever, and outgoing. I also love to vocally express my opinion, whether I'm bored, need attention, or think dinner is late. I would prefer the company of my human(s) for most of the day, but I'm learning to keep myself entertained with toys. I love to accompany you throughout your day and explore your home. I am marked as special needs because I am FIV+ but I have not had any related symptoms or health problems.

Story
Hi, my name is Jasper. I'm a neutered boy, around 10 years of age. I use to live with an elderly lady and many other cats, but she died and then I was taken to a barn where I was locked up (with food & water) for nearly 2 years. For six months of that time I was so terrified, I hid from everyone. But eventually I started coming out and getting petted. A kind foster lady took me into her beautiful bedroom where I await my forever home. I love to sit in the window, sleep on/or under the bed, get petted/attention and love getting fresh water and food. I have always lived with other cats, but I would prefer a quiet household, where no one will harass me or frighten me. Please email or text my foster mom directly if you are interested in adopting me! My foster moms think I'm a sweet boy. Thank you for your consideration!

Story
Leo turns 7 later this year and we adopted him from an animal control center. He was super spunky and energetic but also the biggest baby and cuddle bug ever as a kitten. He has lived with us through 2 moves and 3 kids now. We joke that he is basically a dog. He follows us around, is vocal, and loves to play and cuddle. He is really good with our young kids and pretty patient with them even when they are occasionally rough with him. He does unfortunately scratch furniture. However we did have luck with claw caps when we kept up with them.

Story
Juju just turned 8 years old in the beginning of April. She was adopted from an animal control center and has been with us since she was just a couple months old. Juju is your stereotypical cat. She is lazy, kind of moody and likes to hide a lot. She is super cuddly and super low key. Although the one way to get her to play is with hair ponies. She has been around kids, from infants to toddlers, but honestly prefers life without them. While we have never had a problem with her and the kids, she typically hides most of the day and comes out when the kids go to bed. She has hissed at them before too when they get to crazy near her.
