Ice Cream Cats
Read about the 42 cats that EAS rescued from a home in Evanston – the Ice Cream Cats!
What can we say about Salty? During Covid he became the office cat, and he continues to assume that role. He's an easygoing guy who is happy to lounge around the office, occasionally offering to assist with computer duties by lying next to (or on) your keyboard. He likes to walk on the printer and activate the test print button so paper comes out. His favorite toy is a wadded up piece of paper, and he really enjoys being petted with a back scratcher. He loves the people he loves, and if you're not one of those people, he'll give you really clear signals that you haven't yet been admitted to his inner circle. He needs an experienced cat person who will be patient and allow him to be himself. He's not a huge fan of cats and really doesn't like dogs, so he'll need to be your one and only -- but with a personality as big as his, you really only need one!
Cheerio & Monocle
Cheerio and Monocle are beautiful sisters who are a little shy around new people, but given time to settle in their foster home they have blossomed. They are curious and calm and a bit independent. They are delightful cats who would do best in a calm home with a family patient enough to allow them to slowly acclimate.
Argo & Cranberry
Argo and Cranberry are bonded siblings who came to the shelter when their owner died. They were very loved and well cared for and have adapted well to their new circumstances. They are a friendly and playful pair of 7-year-old cats who really just want a new home to call their own!
Beanie & Jonah
These two are the absolute perfect brother and sister pair. They are about 8 or 9 months old and were found living outside, but they clearly were well socialized before that. They are friendly, confident, playful and sweet – and did we mention cute?
The cutest little face you've ever seen masks a young cat who has strong opinions about the world. She is cute and playful and fun, but she also sets very clear boundaries and lets you know when you've crossed them. We believe an all-adult household would be best for her, and she might be able to live with another cat with a slow introduction.
Felix & Xilef
Felix and Xilef came to the shelter when their owner could no longer care for them. They are both affectionate cats who love to play – they also enjoy hanging out at the highest point they can reach in any given room! They like being petted and are sweet, but they would not be described as lap cats.
Starchild came to the shelter as a stray, and she was in pretty rough shape. It's tough for a senior girl to live on the streets! Her vet visit revealed that she was in better health than she looked and just needed some thyroid medication. After a few weeks of medication, love and consistent food, she is looking great and ready for her forever home.
Georgia Belle is a super sweet gal who just wants to be next to you at all times. She was a house cat who got lost and we believe she had to fend for herself outside for quite some time. Whether you're sitting on the couch or lying in bed, her happy place is next to you. She loves a good nap and gets the zoomies from time to time - overall she is chill embodied. She is very clear about her boundaries and will swat to let you know when she wants you to stop, but as she gets to know you, she lightens up. She's a sweet lady who loves a good head scratch and warm spot on the couch to nap to her heart's content.
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.
Crumble is a bit of an "old soul." She's only about seven months old but seems like a more mature cat. Her foster parent describes her as wonderful and easygoing, and largely independent. She enjoys being around people and has her affectionate side, but she is definitely not needy, and is overall a pretty low-maintenance kind of cat. She's happy with the solo life and would prefer to be the only pet in the home.
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 6 months old, spayed and ready to go!
