Name: Little ChunkyBreed: DSHDOB: 3/30/2024Good with kids: YESGood with dogs: YESGood with cats: YESFoster location: Pingree Grove, IL Adoption fee: $200 a kitten or $350 for a pair of kittens  Fun Bio: Meet Little Chunky! This sweet, playful, friendly girl is the whole package! She's sassy energetic and loves to chirp while playing with her favorite toy springs. Her beautiful orange coloring makes her a rare find too, as only 18% of orange cats are female. Apply to meet this perfect scoop of orange sherbet today! 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 naile cat’s nails without harm. ##2079831##

Story
Angel is a sweet cat, she is very affectionate and loves to be pet. Her favorite things are laser pointers, high places, and seeing new places. She was abandoned by her first owner that had her for 5 years. Her current owner took her in without any knowledge of her needs and Angel is not a good fit with their other cat. She does best in quiet and calm homes. She just needs someone who will support her and have time to spend.

Story
Crumbles wears her heart on her side for all to see. She is such pretty girl! Curious and sweet, she is sure to win your heart. She does not like to be held for long but is making slow progress & working on that with her foster family. She loves her cat toy wands and mice but isn’t a fan of most treats. She loves to see what her foster family is up to, and her presence always lights up a room. She does ok with good dogs and ok with other nice cats. Crumbles will shy away from her siblings if they play too hard for her taste. She would do best with being paired well in a super sweet cat home to avoid her potentially being bullied. She would also do well in a single cat family. Home is where her heart is and Crumbles is waiting for her forever one! rh

Story
Butters the cowardly lion has a courageous heart of gold ?. He came to his foster fearful and nervous, but his courage has always shown through. Treats are his all-time favorite! He also loves playing with mice, his foster friends and siblings, and enjoys hanging out with his foster family. Butters is ok being held, does well with “good dogs” and other cats. He has been around kids but hasn’t been handled by a child younger than 10 yet. Although he might take a few extra days to acclimate, he is so worth those few extra days. He is a furry friend of a lifetime. rh
