As we wrap up Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month, we’ll look at some of the cats looking for homes through the Chicago Cat Rescue, formerly Virtually Home. This rescue has been around about six years and rescues cats from a variety of places, keeping them in foster care until they find a home.
Reigning royalty – Princess Fiona
If you’re looking for a regal, endearing little cat, look no further than Princess Fiona. This super friendly little calico was rescued by one of the organizations volunteers while she was attempting to cross Fullerton in the middle of the night. She allowed the volunteer to pick her up and be carried to his car and this very dirty, but sweet, little cat settled into foster care. People have let Princess Fiona down a lot, but you’d never know when meeting this trusting soul.
Fun-loving charmer – Sweeney
Sweeney almost didn’t get a second chance at a happy ending. He was abandoned in a heavily populated kill-shelter with a slim-to-none chance of making it out. Chicago Cat Rescue intervened and they are glad they did. This little charmer will steal your heart with his chirping and party attitude toward life. He’s upbeat, fun, energetic and loves to meet you when you come in the door. Sweeney would love to be adopted into a family with another cat because he so loves to party when he’s not stealing your heart. He may even be dog friendly.
It takes two – Maggie and Mackie
For foster or adoption – Life hasn’t been exceptionally kind to Maggie and Mackie. These bonded siblings were found abandoned in the dead of winter in a Chicago stairwell. They’ve remained best friends since their rescue and are easy going and tolerant of the other cats in their foster home. They get along with the dog and really love to chill and watch TV with you. Note – Maggie and Mackie are losing their foster home at the end of July. Contact Chicago Cat Rescue if you’d like to foster.
Star quality and staying power – Hepburn
This beautiful orange kitty was found on the streets of Chicago on a cold January morning. Neighbors say she’d been wandering the neighborhood for months, looking for food. This beautiful green-eyed girl ended up in foster care with the rescue and although Hepburn isn’t feisty like her namesake she does have a strong will to survive. She’s even tempered, romps with cats of all sizes and would fit in well at any household. Although she’s around 18 months, she has the demeanor of an old soul, even tempered and patient.
