I've had him for 12 years and I really don't want to get rid of him but I can't afford him anymore. I acquired him from a friend. All I want is someone who will take good care of him.

Story
I'm Paddy McGee, but you can call me Paddy. They named me that because I came to Touched by an Animal right around St. Patrick's Day. I'm a shy guy with a lot of love to give. If you give me a chance, I'll be your best friend, but you're going to have to make the first move, because I don't think I'd know what to say. I like to sit high up in cat trees and watch all the other cats and people walk by, but I think I'd like it more to sit on a nice soft quiet sofa with you! To offer me a loving home, please call the nice people at Touched By An Animal/Cats-Are-Purrsons-Too at (773)728-6336 or e-mail them at TBA@touchedbyananimal.org.     May 12, 2024, 12:00 am

Story
Tootles, is very loving and purr when pet with his tail up. Tootles is very calm and can play and hang out by himself or loves to play and cuddle with people. He is a curious kitten who wants to know what you’re doing and be a part of it. He loves to chase and catch the elusive fly in the house. Tootles particularly loves cat tv. Tootles loves the lazer pointer when he isn’t gazing out the window at squirrels and birds. Tootles loves to play with random objects and sometimes carries them around in his mouth around the house. We plan to place Tootles with his brother, Sweetums in a forever home as they have bonded and we would hate to separate them. If you would like to meet and possibly adopt this amazing feline, please email info@chicagocatrescue.org or call 773/203-0215. No texts, please. CCR adopts to forever homes in Chicago or the very near suburbs that are within 10 miles of our Chicago foster families. We love our cats and we pledge support for the rest of their lives, which is why our location limits are in place. We appreciate your understanding. If you are outside of these limits, please check petfinder.com, which allows searching by zip code, for cats closer to your home. At Chicago Cat Rescue, we are dedicated to both the physical and emotional well-being of the cats and kittens in our care. For this reason, unless expressly stated, we do not place cats or kittens in homes where they will be the only cat. Generally, cats love the company of other cats, and can become quite lonely when living alone. Kittens will only be placed in pairs, or to join another kitten or young cat in your home. Chicago Cat Rescue is an entirely foster-based organization. Our ability to help more cats in need is dependent on our availability of foster homes. If you think you could provide a loving foster situation for a cat in need, or would like to learn more about our foster program, please email us, info@chicagocatrescue.org. Thank you!

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
Precious is a sweet, black cat about 12 years old. She is very friendly and follows you around hoping for kisses, pets, and headbutts. Being that she is the sweetest girl in the world, it’s impossible not to oblige!     Making her even cuter, Precious is missing teeth, so her tongue sticks out. It doesn’t affect her appetite or love for life. Her ear tips are a little curled over as a reminder of the hard outdoor life she once had. Now, she loves her inside life and all the attention she gets. You won’t regret having her in your life!    All cats/kittens are:   -spayed or neutered   -up to date on vaccines   -flea and parasite free    -micro-chipped  Kittens can be adopted by filling out an application at: www.catvando.org/adoption.  Please send an inquiry with any questions!
