Ice Cream Cats

Read about the 42 cats that EAS rescued from a home in Evanston – the Ice Cream Cats!

PT and Saci

Attention tortie fans! These senior ladies would love to steal your heart, and your lap. Saci and PT are about 11 years old and have found themselves in our care after their person died. They're a little shy at first, but once they've checked you out they're quite the affectionate pair. Their ideal home would have a couple humans to dote on them, as they aren't always willing to share the attention.

Short Stack

This adorable young cat was found as a stray and brought to us by a concerned citizen. Since she was found near a pancake place, we named her Short Stack. She's playful, affectionate, curious, and likes to snuggle in a lap or perch on her foster mom's shoulder. Young children might not be a good match since she doesn't enjoy being picked up, but she would very much like a calm house where she can receive plenty of attention.

Broomhilda and Witchiepoo

This bonded pair of sisters is the perfect balance. Broomhilda is outgoing and affectionate, while Witchiepoo is a bit more independent and likes to come to people on her own terms. Both are vocal, playful, curious and ready for a new home. These two are about 7 months old, spayed, up to date on vaccines, and FeLV/FIV-negative.


This handsome young cat is one active guy! He loves to explore and climb, and also likes perching on his foster mom's shoulder. Once he's had some playtime, he's very affectionate - and then he's ready to play some more. Tarot would be happiest in an active house with plenty of human playmates, and might enjoy a feline buddy as well.


Handsome guy Moody took a little time to adjust to shelter life, but once he did, he became a real volunteer favorite. Now that he’s in a foster home we’ve learned even more about his charming personality. He’s playful and affectionate, a touch shy with new people, and seems to feel most at home in a relatively calm home. He has strong feelings about being petted -- he enjoys chin scratches and pets on his back, but will gently nip if you venture beyond his preferred areas. He’s polite -- but needs a family who will pay attention to his signals. We think he’d like to be the only pet in the home so he can soak up all the attention.

Moxie and Chutzpah

Eight-month-old bonded siblings Moxie and Chutzpah are tons of fun. They were a little shy when they came to the shelter, but once they got comfortable they started literally leaping into laps and snuggling with volunteers. They're curious and playful, very gentle and more than ready for a home and family to call their own.

Dilly Bar and Mr. Misty

These two came in separately as strays, but after a couple days together in their foster home, they became fast friends. They are a nice complementary pair – Mr. Misty (solid grey) is more people-oriented and affectionate than Dilly Bar, who can be a little shy at first, and she can spend hours entertaining herself with her favorite toys. They are about 3-1/2 months old, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and a future spay and neuter will be provided by the shelter.
