About Hot Rod

Black Cat Fact! Did you know: If your black cat has a tabby stripe gene and loves to spend his days lounging in the sun, his fur can turn a rusty brown color. Why? The sun’s rays break down the pigment in their fur to reveal the underlying tabby stripes. Black Cats are so interesting, right!? Our Hot Rod is a lover and a lap cat, he loves to be by people. Loves to cuddle and have one paw on you at all times (awww). Hot rod is a chatty guy, he will meow to say hi and purr to thank you! One of his cutest quirks is his love for buttons, so you'll probably have to rearrange your wardrobe so you're wearing a few buttons everyday! Hot Rod is a chill guy, he could be good with other cats, but we are not sure. Hot Rod is between 10-12 years of age, he would do best in a calm home where he can relax and lounge. We absolutely do not condone declawing a cat (as it is very painful and unnecessary for them), but Hot Rod did make his way to us as a front declawed cat. If you would like to meet and possibly our stud Hot Rod, contact Cindy: (773)203-0215, or email: cindy@chicagocatrescue.org At Chicago Cat Rescue, we are dedicated to both the physical and emotional well being of the cats and kittens in our care. For this reason, unless expressly stated, we do not place cats or kittens in homes where they will be the only cat. Generally cats love the company of other cats, and can become quite lonely when living alone. Kittens will only be placed in pairs, or to join another kitten or young cat in your home. CCR adopts to homes in Chicago, or to homes that are within a few miles of our foster families. We do not ship cats or kittens. No exceptions. Chicago Cat Rescue is an entirely foster based organization. Our ability to help more cats in need is dependent on our availability of foster homes. If you think you could provide a loving foster situation for a cat in need, or would like to learn more about our foster program, please email us, info@chicagocatrescue.org. Thank you!

Maybe he's so joyful now because he knows what it means to be homeless. Maybe he simply came into this world with a stellar temperament. All we know is that, ever since we pulled him from our local animal control, our sweet Barisic is one happy cat! Barisic is gentle, good natured, and easy going. He lives in a foster home with a school age child, so we can guarantee that Barisic will be your perfect family pet. He'll wait patiently as you drink your first cup of morning coffee, and greet you at the door after a long day. Yours, not his! We suspect he'd even tolerate wearing antlers for your annual holiday card! Barisic is positive for both FeLV and FIV. That's the risk we humans impose on cats who are allowed outdoors, or worse, who are abandoned outside altogether. But Barisic is grateful for the life he has now, and we're confident that he plans to enjoy it as long as possible! We don't know what the future holds for Barisic. Cats who are FeLV positive can remain asymptomatic for many years. What we do know is that giving a home to a cat like Barisic will earn you a place in this wonderful cat's heart. And that's a gift that you'll cherish forever. If you would like to meet and possibly adopt this amazing feline, contact Cindy: (773)203-0215, or email: cindy@chicagocatrescue.org At Chicago Cat Rescue, we are dedicated to both the physical and emotional well being of the cats and kittens in our care.

Beautiful Bouncy is a sweet and friendly calico, just like her adoptive sister Mia. The two cats have lived together for several years, and we plan to place them together. Bouncy and Mia were living together when their owner moved and left them behind. CCR was alerted by the landlord that these girls were in need of a new loving home, and we couldn't help but scoop them up. These girls have come to us front paw declawed. The girls play a little together, but more on their own; they love to bunny kick cat nip kickers, sit in little boxes and cubes, run after laser beams or play with ribbon toys. After the lights go out, the girls can often be heard hunting their toys, and carrying their prey around as a trophy. Bouncy loves to sit next to you on the couch once she warms up to you. They are friendly and interested in new people and visitors. Bouncy sometimes sleeps at the foot of her foster moms bed, but often in her favorite chair. The girls are low key, just always around, napping where it's warm. If you would like to meet and possibly adopt Bouncy and her sister Mia, contact Cindy: (773)203-0215, or email: cindy@chicagocatrescue.org At Chicago Cat Rescue, we are dedicated to both the physical and emotional well being of the cats and kittens in our care.

Buster, a young, sweet and photogenic boy! Buster is bonded with his brother (from another mother) Mica. They are two peas in a pod, the perfect companions, they spend their days grooming each other and watching traffic wiz by out the window. Buster makes the perfect furry headrest and can often be found sitting on the couch cushion behind his foster moms head. A quiet guy, Buster does have a cute little Meow he lets out every once in a while to say thank you. Buster is reported to have the softest fur ever, now is your chance to test this out for yourself! Buster and Mica are ready to meet you!

Honey and her son, Charlie, are former strays who were taken in by a kind older woman. She gave them a loving home for many years, but she was no longer able to care for them. Her family left them alone with minimal human interaction for several months and planned on turning them out on the street. Thankfully, a compassionate neighbor ensured that they were fed and reached out to Chicago Cat Rescue for help. Honey and Charlie were pretty traumatized when they arrived at their foster home, but with a lot of love and patience, their awesome personalities re-emerged. The have so much love to give and are ready for their forever home. They are a bonded pair: Charlie is very attached to Honey and will cry for her and look for her if he doesn’t know where she is. They regularly check in with each other by head butting and rubbing cheeks with one another. Honey is a teeny-tiny 10-year-old lady with the softest fur. She loves eating, climbing, being brushed, and playing with toys. She is very affectionate and will tap you with her paw when she wants more pets. She will give a high five for treats indefinitely. When you lie down, she enjoys laying close to you and may climb onto your lap or chest if the mood strikes. Charlie is a chonky boy and a bit of a clown! He’s approximately 9-years-old and still plays like a kitten. He loves butt pats, being brushed, eating, re-arranging furniture, and using his scratching posts. If you want his attention, baby talk brings him running. He also likes being sung to! Charlie head butts to show affection, and given his considerable bulk, he’s not to be ignored. Charlie isn’t a lap cat, but he loves being close to you and will follow you around. Charlie will eat just about anything. He definitely isn’t a fussy kitty!

Dandelion's foster mom describes her as Angelic. Angelic, calm but playful. She plays fetch like a dog, but she's also very cat like, jumping high and walking delicately. This girl is not shy, even though she's had a bit of a rough past, she is excited to explore her new home right away.

Junebug is shy and affectionate. She was rescued by CCR when she was less than 3 months old. She had a wound on her neck that appeared to be the result of a cigarette burn. We can’t imagine why anyone would perpetrate such a horrific act on any animal.  And yet, Junebug has remained the sweetest, most loving of kittens. She can be a bit shy at first but once she trust you its like magic, she will open up like a book. She will trust you 100%, let you touch her belly, paws or tail, which many cats can be particular about. She gives so much of herself; she is affectionate, playful, and loves to follow and imitate her sister Dandelion. Junebug climbs on the bed and likes to sleep under the blanket. She likes to give kisses to show her affection. Foster mom says "Person that gets these two cats will be blessed. They are a great team, and super funny to watch them play together."
