Thank you for your interest in adopting or fostering. Rescuing one cat won't change the world, but it will change the world for that cat.  Small Tabby FemaleMeet Anise. This sweet petite girl kitty is a flower waiting to bloom!  She is sometimes shy and sometimes affectionate. She seems a little uncertain how to be around people, but when she is open to affection to purrs loudly and gives head butts. Other times she seems very cautious and will hide. Anise needs a quiet home and patient person who can help her learn people are OK and that she is loved. She is very playful with her sister and would do well with another young cat. Her sister is very skittish and we believe that the influence of her very shy sister is not helping Anise come out of her shell. She is a very petite girl with shorter than normal legs and a beautiful tabby coat. Can you eb the one to give Anise a forever home?   If you want to meet this sweet cat, please submit an application on our website: .  All our cats are up-to-date on vaccines, housebroken and ready to go home. And if you can't adopt but would like to help, fostering is always an option! Fostering one (or more) of our other irresistibly cute feline companions makes space available to save more lives. You can also schedule a play date and meet 12 of our affectionate rescues by visiting Le Cat Cafe at 2713 W. Girard Ave . Schedule a visit today!   show less

Thank you for your interest in adopting or fostering. Rescuing one cat won't change the world, but it will change the world for that cat.  These sweet siblings have found themselves homeless in their prime. Their owner has a new baby and decided she can no longer keep them. They have lived in the same home since they were born and would do best if adopted together. They were born 9/2010. Cliff is Fluffy Black and White A little bit about Cliff:  Cliff is very friendly. He loves to cuddle. He loves attention, but it has to be on his terms. He does not like to be picked up. He does like dogs, but he will take a little bit to get used to them. Once he does, all is well. The only cat he has been around is his sister. So not sure how he will be with other cats.  Cliff likes to eat. He has a special way of eating. He picks up his dry food, and uses his paw to eat, and will also toss some of his food on the floor. He drinks from his water bowl, but also likes to go to bath tub spout for water. He loves to paw at fuzzy blankets and pillows, and he will sometimes drool. He's also a licker. Licks your hands, walls, tables, anything at his eye level. But not all the time. Just here and there. He also loves plastic, crinkly things. He does not like the outdoors. He will go to an open door and he will stay there, and never runs, or ventures away.    Swagger is an Orange and White tabby  A little bit about Swagger:  Swagger is very friendly .She loves all people and warms up to dogs pretty quickly.  Not sure about cats , the only cat she has been around is her brother. She is a cuddler! She loves laying on anything lumpy. Shoes, blankets, stuffies humans etc.. She loves being warm. Loves laying in front of the fireplace, or heater. She LOVES to eat. She will drink from her water bowl, but will also try to get water from the water cooler or bath tub spout. Swagger will carry socks, or other small soft objects in her mouth, and she will meow while doing so. She also tries to race you down the steps! Swagger likes the outdoors. She is not an outdoor cat by any means, but is very curious about the outside, and has explored our patio, but doesn't run away from us.  If you want to meet this sweet cat, please submit an application on our website: .  All our cats are up-to-date on vaccines, housebroken and ready to go home.

Thank you for your interest in adopting or fostering. Rescuing one cat won't change the world, but it will change the world for that cat.  Meet Goldie! Say hello to Goldie. Goldie is looking for her °furever° home . She has been a foster with me for 6 months now and she is a changed cat. She loves to have her head scratched and she follows me around the house like a little puppy. She loves attention and sleeps next to me. She still has some issues and would probably not be ok in a family with children or other pets as she occasionally  decides that petting is not ok and  may occasionally try to scratch or bite, although I truly believe that she thinks this is a way to °play° .  The perfect home for Goldie would be a single person or couple with no children who would respect her need to have her own space.  Goldie accepts love from  her  people on her own terms. I think Goldie has even more growth potential .The right family  would encourage and help her to overcome her past traumas and help her to become  the cat she desires to be If you want to meet this sweet cat, please submit an application on our website: .  All our cats are up-to-date on vaccines, housebroken and ready to go home.
