Harrison: The Love Bug   1 comment

Name: Harrison
Age: 3 years
Sex: Male
Breed: Domestic Short Hair

Harrison epitomizes the phrase “love bug”. The moment he arrived at the shelter, he made himself right at home. Within minutes he was searching out a good lap to take a good snooze on, belly-up nonetheless! If Harrison is this trusting, laid back, and loving at the shelter, I can only imagine how awesome he would be in a house of his own. If I didn’t already have 4 of my own (4 is the house limit), I would definitely be bringing this big bundle of love home.

Ellis Carver: In the eyes of insanity   4 comments

Name: Ellis Carver
Age: 1 year
Sex: Female
Breed: Domestic Short Hair

Have you ever met a cat (or human for that matter) that just has that look in their eyes? You know the look I mean… One of total insanity…

Ellis Carver has that look in her eyes and the personality to back it up. She can be totally wild, tearing around the room and smacking other cats in the face.  Then a few minutes later she is  a complete sweetheart, purring and licking your fingers. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Who is that sexy cat?   Leave a comment

Name: Lima
Age: 2 Years
Sex: Female
Breed: Siamese

When most cats come into the shelter, the abundance of windows with their own kitty reflections staring back at them doesn’t seem to phase them a bit. Then there are the few, like little Lima here, who are totally engrossed by the cat staring back at them. Maybe it’s because Lima just likes looking at her own loveliness. I mean with eyes like hers, who wouldn’t?

Kitten Friday! Would you make a good kitten foster parent?   2 comments

Names: TBD
Ages: 6 Weeks
Sexes: 2 males, 1 female
Breed: Ragdoll and Domestic Long Hair Mix

Considering adopting kittens but not sure if they are for you? Maybe you should consider becoming a kitten foster parent!

For kitten Friday this week, I went to the home of Amy, a PAWS Chicago kitten foster mom. Her latest fosters are too cute for words. These little balls of puff were semi-feral when she got them a few weeks ago, but now they are little love bug thanks to Amy’s great work. We need more fosters who are as awesome as Amy!

Name: Rose
Age: 5 years
Sex: Female
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Likes: WET FOOD; mashing her face into hard objects and sleeping that way; her cardboard box, cat tube, and tent (no other cats allowed); standing over my face while I’m asleep and shouting
Dislikes: When other cats try to use her cardboard box, cat tube, or tent; closed doors; when me or my boyfriend sleep without asking her first if it is OK; soft sleeping places

For the past week, my poor little Rose has been very sick with some chronic digestive issues, which have precluded me from posting on a regular basis. She is on the road to recovery (thankfully) and it only seemed fitting that my first post after the hiatus be dedicated to her.

Rose came into my life when I went to the shelter to adopt a friend for Isobel and fell in love with an adorable kitten (Sophia). Problem was, she had a twin sister that she was bonded with (Rose), and well being the softie that I am, I couldn’t bear to separate them. So I adopted them both and I couldn’t be happier.

Rose gets her name from the character on the Golden Girls because that is exactly her personality, a little dim but so sweet and gentle. A truly awesome cat who acts as the peacekeeper in my crazy multiple cat household.

Sorry about the size… This is another picture from my film camera which was then scanned into digital.

… but I think that he has been reincarnated as a cat. I mean, how else could Nilla have learned that lip action?
