Ice Cream Cats

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


Just look at that adorable face! Nelson was abandoned at the shelter so we don’t know his history, but we do know he is an affectionate and curious sweetheart and he’s going to be a great snuggle companion for some lucky adopter. He’s about ten years old, so his crazy energetic days are mostly behind him. These days he’s into soft blankets and beds and will politely nudge his foster mom to request “more pets, please!” If you’re ready for a calm, no-drama kind of buddy, Nelson could be just what you need.

Icing on the Cake

If you can appreciate an independent, ‘appreciate me from afar,’ charming diva of a cat, Icing on the Cake is your perfect match! She’s about five years old, and while she came from a house with quite a few cats, has made it clear she prefers the solo life. Quirky and unique, she’ll keep you amused for sure!


Sassy is a big love of a cat. She’s loves a comfy lap, a good brushing session, and a good meal – in no particular order. Sassy is about 8 years old and is looking for a calm, quiet home to share with some lucky human.


Ginger girl Bella is looking for a quiet home to call her own. She's sweet and affectionate but prefers to initiate attention on her own terms — she has an independent streak for sure. Bella can be easily frightened by too much commotion so she'd prefer an adults-only home with an experienced cat person who will understand and appreciate her quirks. She's about 6 years old, spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccines.


Berry LOVES her humans, and for her, the more the merrier – she likes attention and the more people around to give it to her, the better! She's a talker, and will follow you around the house carrying on a conversation. She does have her limits and is very good about removing herself from the thick of things when she's had enough socializing. Her foster mom describes her as playful, a lapcat, curious, affectionate and headstrong. Berry would do best in a house with children ages 10+ and quite definitely needs to be the only cat.


Cookie is independent and affectionate, and if you offer to brush her, she'll be your new best friend! She's looking for a calm home and would prefer adults only – but another cat would probably be just fine with her. Cookie is about 5 years old, spayed, and up to date on her vaccinations.


Rookie's foster family describes her as playful and funny, a great snuggler and lap cat. She enjoys games that let her practice her hunting skills, but is happiest hanging out with her teenage human friends. Rookie is a petite 3-year-old, fully vetted, and ready for her new home.

Maple Nut & Mississippi Mud

Playful, curious and independent, Maple Nut and Mississippi Mud are looking for a home together. Maple Nut, the adorable orange girl, is just about a year old, loves to play, and seeks out affection from the humans in the house. Her buddy, Mississippi Mud, is a little more reserved, playing mostly in the evening and preferring to observe rather than join in with whatever the humans may be doing. Both are very gentle girls and will be lovely, low-maintenance companions.

Gaucho & Coulotte

Sisters Gaucho and Coulotte are easygoing, playful and confident. Gaucho will greet you in the morning for pets and kisses, and will sleep at your feet overnight. Coulotte is a bit of a princess, claiming any box, perch or backpack as her throne. She's definitely more independent than her sister, but does enjoy a good nap on an available lap. These two are between 1 and 2 years old, spayed and up to date on shots. They're looking for a home together, where they can be the only pets.


Hoobastank (or Hoobi, as his friends call him) is all about having fun. He's a little less than a year old, so still full of playful energy and curiosity, but also very affectionate with his human friends. He's an easygoing guy, confident in new surroundings and looking for someone who's up for regular play sessions.


Shaw is a shy young cat but we suspect she secretly wants to be a lap cat when she grows up. She's gotten more and more affectionate in her foster home, and loves chasing tennis balls across the floor or playing with wand toys. Shaw has made friends with the young cats in her foster home and would really like to have a new feline friend or two in her new home. Shaw is about six months old, spayed and ready to go!

The Garden Club

Hosta, Seedling & Sprout

This trio of rambunctious boys runs the gamut from a little bit shy all the way to attention-stealing lap cat. Sprout (with the thinnest white blaze) is the shyest of the bunch, but with a little encouragement he comes out of his shell and loves being petted. Food and wand toys are the way to his heart. Seedling, the other tuxedo is just the opposite, and will take all your attention if you let him. Finally there's Hosta, who is a mix of the two. He loves a good shoulder to hang out on, but also likes some time in his own space. All three have tons of energy and will want lots of toys and playtime. As much as we'd love to keep them together, we know most folks aren't looking to adopt three kittens. So either Hosta or Seedling could be adopted on their own into a home with another young cat, and Sprout will go together with the remaining sibling.

Enoki & Chanterelle

These sweet and gentle kittens are two from of our ‘Mushroom’ litter. They can be a little shy for a minute or two, but once they’ve assessed the situation, they’re ready to play. Enoki will politely meow for food or attention, and Chanterelle is proving to be the more active of the two. They are looking for a home together, and would prefer adults or older children.

Oyster & Button

Two more of our adorable Mushroom litter – meet Oyster and Button! These two are typical kittens: playful, curious and energetic, and as you can see, quite bonded with one another. If you’ve been missing some kitten energy in your life, these two have plenty to spare.
