Adopt me of the week: Brie and Monterey

Back in May we wrote about Brie and Monterey. These sweet, bonded sisters are looking for a new foster or forever home ASAP. Due to circumstances beyond their control these sweet sisters are losing their foster home THIS WEEKEND. If we are unable to find them a new home we will be forced to board them at our vet's office. Can you help these girls stay out of a cage.  If you or someone you know might be interested in fostering or adopting  these two girls please contact Chicago Cat Rescue immediately at 773.203.0215.

Brie and Monterey are an adorable pair of red-headed sisters looking for their forever home. These girls were found huddled on a porch, with no food or shelter, in the dead of winter. They were cold and hungry and Chicago Cat Rescue swooped in to save these girls just before it got even colder. In the few months these dolls have been with Chicago Cat Rescue they have blossomed.A long way from freezing and starving on the streets, they now enjoy watching hockey games and snuggling on the soft couch together! Their foster mom reports that these two girls are extremely bonded. She calls them "two peas in a pod." It's hard to imagine how these girls could not love each other, having relied on each other for survival outside last winter.

While they may be attached at the hip, Brie and Monterey have distinct personalities. Their foster mom says that Brie is super snuggly.  She loves to sleep in your lap if you are watching TV or working. Brie loves to get pets, and "won't leave your side as long as you're petting her." Brie is over all just a big lover of a cat. She gets jealous if Monterey is getting attention, running over to make sure she gets her share of the loving! She is also quick to warm up to new people. Monterey on the other hand takes a little longer to accept new people and in general is "less of a people snuggler." While she may not be as interested in people as her sister, she is far from shy!

When Monterey wants to be petted or fed she weaves in-between her foster mom's legs, demanding her needs be met! She is quick to roll over for belly rubs too! Monterey is also the more playful of the girls. She loves to toss her toy mouse in the air and catching it, or running what her foster mom calls the "Kitty 500" (a feline version of the Indy 500) around the apartment. Monterey must remember life on the street and not having enough food, as she is very fond of her meals! Who can blame her though?

Brie and Monterey are a perfect example of how important it is to have a pair of cats. They keep each other company during the day, providing a friend to play with and someone to snuggle with while their foster mom is away at work. Most cats do much better with a feline companion to keep them company during the day. Brie and Monterey also display different aspects of feline personalities, playful and snuggly. You get a little bit of everything with these girls!

If you are looking for a pair of cats but don't want to go through the process of introducing new cats to each other, Brie and Monterey are the perfect girls for you! They are also great cats for a first time adopter, as they are both easy going and super lovable!

Unfortunately Brie and Monterey must find a new foster home by the end of the month, through no fault of their own. These girls would love if they could go straight to their new home when they lose their foster home. If you are interested in foster, adopting or fostering to adopt these two girls please contact Cindy, or call her at 773.203.0215.

Adopt me of the week: Pippi, Pepper and Junebug

Our beautiful trio of sisters,  Pippi, Pepper and Junebug are looking for a new foster home. These girls are very bonded. Ideally we would like to keep them together, however we understand three cats are a lot to take on. If you can open your home to two cats, or have another cat at home who could use a laidback companion, please consider fostering one or two of these beautiful girls. They have until July 25 to find a new foster home!

Junebug is an elegant black little lady who appreciates a bit of formality in the how-do-you-dos and then, once you become familiars, she’s always available for a good head rubbing and snuggling. She’s a wonderful bedtime buddy and enjoys sharing a bed with her foster mom and sisters, Pippi and Pepper. Toys may be Junebug’s favorite thing; she loves to play with them, either in solo play or with wand toys!

Pippi is lovely and loving tabby girl who enjoys snuggling with her sisters, Junebug and Pepper. During the day she can usually be found curled up for a nap in a quiet spot with Pepper. She’s fond of bipeds too, especially when they give her tummy rubbings or engage her in some interactive play. It is game on with Pippi!

 Pepper is a black beauty looking for a forever home open to this bashful gal who takes it slow with human companions. She is well-suited to be adopted in a pair with one of her sisters, Junebug or Pippi, with whom she enjoys interactive play to the delight of those who’ve seen this sweet girl in action. She needs a quiet home, no human children please!

These girls spent the first four years of their life in one home, then suddenly lost that home (through no fault of their own) and were forced to spend months in a cage as we searched for a new foster home. They have spent the past year in their current foster home and again, through no fault of their own, are losing it. We don't want Pippi, Pepper and Junebug to spend anymore time in a cage! As with any cat, all the moving has been difficult and very stressful for these girls. Please help us keep these three beautiful girls out of a cage, if we can't find a foster home for them by July 25, they are facing more boarding at our vet. If you are able to open your home as a long term foster, or are interested in fostering to adopt any of these sweet girls please contact Cindy by e-mail or at 773.203.0215
