Adoptable of the Week: Hattie, Georgie, Patrick and Oliver

Lulu's gang as wee babes.
Hattie, Georgie, Patrick and Oliver are the last of Lulu's Gang! Almost a year old now, these little dolls are still looking for a forever home. They are also in need of a new foster home--they simply out grew their current one!  For some reason these four dolls have not found the right home yet. We think they must be waiting for someone extra special to call family.

You can see in the pictures below just how stunning Hattie, Georgie, Patrick and Oliver have grown to be. They are still the playful, frisky felines they were as babies, just in a slightly bigger package which simply means there is more to love!  While they are still playful and mischevious these four have calmed down from their rambunctious kitten days; no longer are they constant balls of energy, just nearly constant balls of energy.

If you are looking to adopt a young cat who is still playful but not a furry tornado of energy that is a kitten, then look for a young adult cat like Hattie, Georgie, Patrick and Oliver. Young adult cats have all the benefits of adult cats--less mischief, more snuggles, calmer!--with plenty of the playfully cute antics of kittens.

Considering adding a young new addition to your home but not 100% sure? Why not foster first? Fostering is a great way to help keep kitties off the street and out of cages while also making sure they are the best fit for your home and family. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Hattie, Georgie, Patrick, Oliver or one of our other young adult cats (or older adult cats!) please contact Cindy.

Save the date: April Events!

Believe it or not April is right around the corner!  After a month off from events in the wake of another wonderfully successful Sexy Black, Chicago Cat Rescue has a few events coming up in April. So pull out those calendars and save the dates!

Chicago Cat Rescue at HamBINGO in December
On April 1, Chicago Cat Rescue will be the featured organization for HamBINGO at Hamburger Mary's. For those who have never been, HamBINGO is bingo but with a twist! Called by drag diva Velicity Metropoli, HamBINGO is a sometimes risque, always amusing evening of bingo. Velicity not only calls the numbers, but calls out attendees and calls it as she sees it. This being April Fools Day, the evening is sure to be even more entertaining. We never know what Velicity has up her sleeves--which is saying something since she is usually in sleeveless dresses! Chicago Cat Rescue has a few tricks in the bag to celebrate April Fools Day! Bring your friends for delicious food, refreshing drinks and great fun.

 HamBINGO starts at 8pm in the Dining Room of Hamburger Mary's (5400 N Clark Street). Come early as space is limited. Proceeds from the bingo cards go directly to Chicago Cat Rescue.

Catfish and the Dogstars perform at Rock for Rescue 2011.
If HamBINGO doesn't sound up your alley, then join us at The Store on April 19 for our second Rock for Rescue event! This year we have live performances by Micki Croissant of the Good Name Band, Bad Raccoon and St. James Place. Enjoy three hours of  music by some talented Chicago artists for just $15, all of which goes back to Chicago Cat Rescue. Swing on by with your friends and start your Friday night out right! What could be better than live music, a few drinks with your friends and helping out the kitties of Chicago Cat Rescue?
