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.


Tilly is another of our senior cats looking for a quiet place to call home. She's gentle and affectionate, and loves being brushed. At 13 years old, she's less interested in playing than in hanging out on the couch and cuddling next to her person. Tilly is looking for an adults-only home, and would like to be the only pet.


Cocoa is a sweet, shy senior lady hoping for a quiet home to call her own. She enjoys hanging out with her people but also likes quiet alone time as well. And don’t forget playtime – she’s may not be a youngster anymore, but she does like some playtime!

Gabby and Annie

This mother/daughter pair came to us under the saddest circumstances. Their person died and there was no family able to take them in. Their foster mom says they are "mellow and sweet girls who enjoy attention." Annie (the calico) is the more independent of the two, easy-going and more outgoing with new people. Gabby takes a bit longer to warm up, but once she's comfortable, she's very affectionate and seems to enjoy toys more than Annie does. They're looking for a home together where they will be the only pets.


Hermione is a calm, independent three-year-old. She enjoys some occasional pets but is generally happy on her own as long as she has a window where she can watch the world go by. She would be a great companion for someone who works outside the home and doesn't want to worry about their pet missing them while they're away. Her ideal home will be one without children and where she can be the only pet.

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.


If you're looking for a dynamo, Harvey would like to meet you! He's a young, mischievous guy with tons of playful energy. Not really a snuggler, he does still allow himself to be picked up and enjoys hanging out near his people. Since his style of play can sometimes be over-the-top, he would probably overwhelm young children, but an active house with some willing human playmates and maybe even another cat would suit him just fine.

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.

Pardonne Moi

These two cuties were originally single kittens who we paired up in their foster home. Since then, they have become good buddies and playmates. Pardonne Moi (or "Pardi") is, according to his foster mom, "a literal party." He’s playful, confident, mischievous, silly and weird. He loves people, pets, treats and tons of attention. Cookie Dough, the little tortie, is much more reserved. She’s playful and curious, with an independent streak. It took her a little while to warm up, but she’s now more social and affectionate, and seeks out her foster mom when she’s ready for attention. Together they’re a great duo.

Ferb and Doofenshmirtz

Brothers Ferb and Doofenshmirtz are the perfect pair. Both are playful, affectionate and very sweet boys. Ferb is a little independent and cautious, while Doofenshmirtz is curious and always ready to crawl into a lap for some love and purrs. Their foster family includes a couple of kids (ages 6 and 13) and the kittens do well around them.

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.


It's kitten season! We have a few adorable kittens ready for their new homes now, and a couple large litters who will be available later this summer. Some of these cuties are already spoken for, but complete your online application now and we’ll keep you up to date as more become available.
