Story
Pippin and Squeaks are a bonded pair. Pippin is a lovely calico kitty and Squeaks is a striking black cat. Pippin is estimated to be 6 years old and Squeaks 11. They are both FIV+ but don't let that diagnosis fool you. They are active, curious cats who, while a bit shy at first, but warm up to new people and are snugly and playful once they get to know you. They are a bonded pair and need to be adopted together. Their owner recently had a significant change in life circumstances and is no longer able to keep them.

Story
Name: TeriyakiBreed: ShorthairDOB: 04/30/2022Good with kids: Yes Good with dogs: UnsureGood with cats: YesFoster location: Belvidere, ILAdoption fee: $50Fun Bio: Meet Teriyaki! This formerly "spicy" boy was found outside as an older kitten all alone, struggling to surivive. He was trapped and brought indoors where he's learned humans are good (in general and as can-openers). He is still a little on the shy side, but warms up with you once he's comfortable. He LOVES food, cat nip and playing in boxes! He's a pretty quiet dude who won't make a fuss or insist you pay attention to him. But he does enjoy coming up on your lap for cuddles and pets. He enjoys chin scratches and pets! He isn't a huge fan of dogs, but does enjoy playing with other cats! He really needs the right person to help this guy reach his full potential. Are you that person? 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.  ##1468460##

They have been waiting for their forever story now since September of 2021! They have quite literally grown up in foster care, and were adopted once but kept in a laundry room then returned for not being social enough. These girls may be shy, they may be more timid than most want, but they are NOT meant for the outdoor life. They are far too big of divas! They LOVE to play their kitty games on the iPad. They love snoozing in the comfiest spots. These posh girls just need a place to call their own! They are extremely friendly with other kitties but will hide from dogs. They will take time to warm up, but with the right adopter we know you will love them!!!

Story
Name: ConchaBreed: ShorthairDOB: 11/07/2018 Good with kids: YesGood with dogs: YesGood with cats: YesFoster location: Berwyn, ILAdoption fee: $50Fun Bio: Poor Concha. She has been waiting SO LONG 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?

Story
Fat Louie is a very calm, quiet cat 7 year old cat. She is not active unless motivated. I adopted Fat Louie from my friend and she lived with me for sometime now. She wasn't spayed until she was almost 3 and she became my pet at 4 years of age. We have moved from Virginia to Illinois and I feel that my fast lifestyle is a bit much for her. She loves to be around her parent daily and I am not around enough for her. I feel she has anxiety from her previous owner. Fat Louie is very reserved and open to meeting new people but she doesn't like other animals. She does live with her other adopted sister Bailey but they do not get along. She needs a normal same routine daily. Change is not appealing to her. She naps and does the same activities daily and her new parent needs to be ready to give her a lot of attention. She likes to be under you at all times.
