Loki is a sweet, declawed, senior lady looking for a quiet place to live out her golden years. You wouldn’t know it by looking at her, or watching her go after a wand toy, but she is 14 years old. She’d like a home with no other animals, no small children and lots of sunny spots to lounge in.


Handsome, mature guy Dale somehow found himself out on the street. Luckily he stumbled onto a caring family who befriended him and brought him to the shelter. He’s quiet, affectionate and unassuming — a real sweetheart. We love having him, but would love it even more if he found the quiet, comfortable forever home he deserves… maybe yours?


Henrietta was brought to the shelter when her people divorced and neither one could keep her. She’s understandably a little shy in her new surroundings, but she’s starting to come out of her shell and is a gentle and affectionate cat. At ten years old she’s mellowed some but certainly has lots of love to give in her new forever home. Henrietta would be a lovely low-maintenance companion, preferably in a quiet adults-only home.


Biji is an affectionate and very talkative 7-year-old cat. Small children would probably be overwhelming for her, but she did live with another cat in her former home. She’s low maintenance and would be happy with a sunny window and spot on the couch. If you enjoy conversing with your pet, she’s your girl!


If you’re looking for a feline companion with a really big personality, Salty just might be your guy. He’s somewhere around two years old, with lots of energy for playing and exploring — in fact, we think he holds the shelter’s record for highest leap while chasing a wand toy! Salty is looking for someone who’ll engage in regular active playtime with him and help him learn to focus his energy appropriately. In return, he’s offering a ton of charm and years of guaranteed entertainment. The perfect home for Salty would be one with an experienced cat person, no small children, and no other pets.


Halo is a young boy looking for an active household to call home. Right now he seems a bit more interested in playing and exploring than cuddling (laser pointers are his favorite), but he does enjoy being brushed after a rambunctious play session. We suspect that once he settles into a new home he’ll be able to relax and become the perfect feline companion. Halo would do best in an adult household, or one with older kids with some cat experience.

Minnow & Mackerel

If you’re looking for an adorable and sweet pair of young cats, you couldn’t do any better than Mackerel (brown) and Minnow (gray). Petite Minnow is about 8 months old, and Mackerel is probably about 1-1/2 years old. They’re a lovely combination of playful and affectionate. These two are definitely bonded and need to be adopted together.


Stamp is about six months old, still full of kitten energy and confidence. This handsome guy is looking for a home with a young feline buddy who can keep up with him, and some human buddies to snuggle with once he’s tired out. Stamp is neutered, up-to-date on shots, and more than ready to go!

Pigeon & Sparrow

Pigeon and Sparrow (one half of our “Birds” litter) are shy and gentle girls looking for a home together. We found them this summer, living with their mom in some construction debris next to a garage. They spent some time in a foster home where they learned to enjoy human companionship and now they are ready for a forever home. Their ideal family would be an adults-only home with some patient folks who will help them get comfortable. Once they settle in, they are playful and full of purrs — they will be lovely companions for some lucky adopter.


Tommy is a young, high energy cat looking for an active home where he can feel free to run around and maybe be a little mischievous. Young children wouldn’t be a good match for him, but a feline buddy to roughhouse with or maybe even a playful canine friend would be great.


Little Miriam was found as a stray and taken to a local fire station before coming to us at the shelter. We dubbed her “Miriam Boyle” in honor of the first female firefighter in the city of Evanston, and she is certainly living up to the big name. She’s full of energy and confidence and, typical of kittens her age, is more interested in playing and exploring than hanging out with humans. She definitely needs a young, playful feline buddy or two. Miriam is about 5 months old, spayed, and ready for her forever home.


We have kittens ready for adoption, and they are adorable! These cuties are all part of bonded pairs and must be adopted together. Stop by this weekend and meet your two new best friends — they won’t be here for long!

Peggy & Angelica

in foster

Peggy and Angelica are a pair of very bonded, one-year-old sisters. These charming ladies are former feral kittens, seeking a home with someone who will be patient with them as they settle into their new environment. They are curious and playful, and once they feel safe they enjoy being petted. They might never be snuggly lap cats, but they are definitely amusing and adorable. Peggy and Angelica need an adults-only home but would probably do well with another cat, or cat-friendly dog. If you’d like to meet this adorable duo, email us at
