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
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
Name: ConchaBreed: ShorthairDOB: 11/07/2018 Good with kids: YesGood with dogs: YesGood with cats: YesFoster location: Berwyn, ILAdoption fee: $25Fun Bio: Poor Concha. She has been waiting SO LONG (almost a year and a half now) for the right person to find her. Concha is a young girl who was living on the street, but then demanded a warm, safe environment, and pushed her way into someone's home and then eventually found her way to R&R.  At first, her rescuer thought she was pregnant as her belly appeared round. Nope! Concha was so underweight and thin, once she finally had access to food, it was determined it was just a "food baby" in her belly! She is happy now that she is in a warm home with lots of love and delicious food and particularly loves tube treats! Concha can be sweet and affectionate but can be a bit of a diva. She thinks she is a queen and expects to be treated as such! She loves to snuggle (on her terms), likes belly rubs, and loves to sit in boxes. She's truly a great girl, just needs someone who will understand her. She's been so patient and is ready for her forever home! Is it with you? If interested in a pet from us please fill out the adoption application that is located on our website.  We process applications in the order in which they are received.  We will likely not respond to interest emails regarding puppies and/or kittens, we get so many "interest" emails that we simply do not have the time to respond to each one.  We always recommend playtime, positive reinforcement training and a regular schedule for feeding times when bringing a new cat/kitten into your home. Adjustment takes time for both you and your new family member, so remember to be patient and enjoy this new and exciting time!Included in the adoption fee are age appropriate vaccinations, FeLV/FIV testing, deworming, spay or neuter surgery, and microchip.Anti-Declawing Policy:All cats and kittens will have a no declaw policy in their adoption contract with us!  Declawing is a series of bone amputations.  Declawing is more accurately described by the term de-knuckling and is not merely the removal of the claws, as the term “declawing” implies.  In humans, fingernails grow from the skin, but in animals that hunt prey, the claws grow from the bone; therefore, the last bone is amputates so the claw cannot re-grow.  Declawing is one of the most painful, routinely performed procedures in all of veterinary medicine.  Each toe of the cat is amputated at the first joint.  Declawing a cat is equivalent in a person to amputating the entire first knuckle of every finger. Declawing is done strictly for the benefit of the owner.  There are NO benefits to the cat and NO good reasons to declaw.Declawing can lead to behavior changes.  A declawed cat has no way to defend itself and may resort to biting more often.  Due to pain, they may stop using the litterbox. There are humane alternatives to declawing.  Cats can be trained to use scratching posts.  They should have their nails trimmed regularly.  There is double sided sticky tape that can be put on furniture to deter a cat from scratching there.  There are also nail caps called Soft Paws that are glued onto a cat’s nails without harm.  ##1553142##

Story
El Tigre is a sweet, adventurous cat who channels his wild cousins' spirit. He likes to be the mighty king and therefore tends to challenge the other cats in his domain. He would ideally be suited as an "only child." He has a wonderful personality and likes to play fetch with bouncy toys! He has a lot of energy! Play is essential to his quality of life. He loves to give kisses and receive cuddles! When El Tigre aka Tigger was a kitten his back leg sustained a green stick fracture, which healed well. But when he is overactive it tends to bother him and he gets irritable. He is a strictly indoor cat but would benefit from a catio environment.
