Bonnie (LV-C-9488)

Bonnie has developed into a beautiful cat! She loves to play and explore her foster home with her other foster family cats. When she is ready for some human loving, she will seek you out for some attention! She will purr immediately upon being picked up and cuddle right into your neck. When it’s time for a rest, she loves to sit on your lap, especially if there is a blanket involved. And, if you don’t have one, Bonnie will come with her own “special” blanket. She has a favorite blanket that she loves to knead and suck on. This magic blanket makes her instantly relax, she starts to purr, and she is in cat-heaven!

Bonnie has been in a foster home with cats, dogs and children. She likes to play and with the other cats and kids (as long as they don’t pick her up), but saves cuddling for the adults (and the kids if they have her blanket). Bonnie co-exists with the dogs – they do not play.

Bonnie will need a little time to transition into your home, as she still has a tendency to get scared with any new or loud noises. If she gets startled, once she realizes everything is alright, she will come right back into the room. If you can be a little patient, because she is so worth it, she’s the cat for you.

Bonnie's estimated date of birth is 5/1/13. Bonnie could be adopted as a single cat, but she would LOVE to have the companionship of another cat - maybe even one of the cats in her foster home - check out our PICK A PAIR page to see if they are still available. Or, you can pick your own pair! If there is already another playful cat in the house she would love that too!

Her adoption fee of $115 includes: vet exam, FeLV/FIV test (neg), distemper combo (FVRCP) vaccine, routine deworming, flea control, microchip and spay.

 

        

   

Bridget (C15052)

Hi, I’m Bridget.  My mom was pregnant when she came to Adopt-a-Pet, so I was lucky enough to be born in a foster home with my five siblings!  My foster home Mom had grandchildren, so I am used to having lots of company.  When another volunteer visited me at Wilmette Pet, she noticed that I cautiously explored and then crawled back into my kitty sack when I was done – a great place to hang out!  If I have another feline companion, we will keep you entertained for hours.  I am also very people-oriented, after a good play session I love to curl up in a nice comfy lap.

Behaviorally and socially, it’s best to adopt kittens in pairs, or into a home with a playful cat. Bridget really needs a playmate in her forever home…and then they can get to play, and snuggle while you're not home. Check out our Pick a Pair page to see if any of her siblings are still available. If there is already another playful cat or kitten in your house, that would work out too…she already proved he is great at making friends!   

You can meet Bridget at Wilmette Pet, 625 Green Bay Road, anytime during store hours 7 days a week. (847-251-6750 www.wilmettepetcenter.com). Although you may want to adopt her on the spot, please know that you will have to go through the application process first.

Bridget’s ACTUAL date of birth is 4/4/15.  Her adoption fee of $135 includes her vet exam, FVRCP (distemper combo) vaccination, rabies vaccination, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg), routine deworming, flea control, microchip and spay.

Her favorite spot to cuddle up is on her “big brother”, a pitbull that she lives with at her foster home! Over time, they have become best friends and she seems to love the companionship of a dog. Delilah is a sweetie pie and will do anything if you give her a neck rub!

Dottie is a lover! She is a black and white DSH with some of the cutest spots on her nose that we've ever seen! Once she trusts you, she won't want to leave your side.

Lina (JL-C-9490)

Cutie Pie Lina! Doesn't she have the sweetest little face?! Miss Lina is a petite young cat with gorgeous green eyes who enjoys playing and romping with her brother and her foster mom's cats but she does tend to be a bit cautious. She is a little shy at first meeting but once she knows you, she has no problem being cuddled in your arms. She will also follow you around the house to see what you're doing. In addition, she is used to a dog and although she doesn't try to play with him, they live together peacefully.

Lina needs to be adopted with another cat or go to a home with another friendly cat for playtime and companionship. She would not be happy as an "only child".

While she is a medium haired black cat she has beautiful brown highlights.  She came to us as a pregnant teenager, raised her babies and even a few that were not her own – what an AWESOME Mom!  She is getting along great with the numerous cats and large dogs that live at her foster home.  Every day she discovers something new that she likes!  She is getting to be her own kitty now that she doesn't have to fend for her food and protect her babies.  She likes to randomly play with her toys, climb the cat trees, watch everything that is going on, and look for attention by “murping” at you! Morning wet food is also a highlight of her day.  She has a great personality and will blossom in a new home with new adventures!

Panda (C9639)

New Arrival!!

 

 

 

SHY CATS NEED FOREVER HOMES TOO!

 



Panda is such a BEAUTIFUL Snowshoe Siamese Mix girl!  And, she can be quite the entertainer…you should see her chase the laser mouse!  Unlike typical Siamese, she is not a talker.  She LOVES to play and cuddle with her brothers, and she has also made friends with the resident foster home cats.  She also likes it when her humans play with her with wand toys.  

Panda and her littermates were found as strays in a northwest suburb when they were over 2 months old and completely scared since humans had never been a part of their lives.  They have all been receiving lots of love in their foster home.  Panda is still shy, even with her foster mom.  When Panda is in her own room, she is very receptive to being pet.  She is also very “kissy” when you pet her!  But, Panda does not like to be picked up.  She will approach you when she is ready for some loving, with all four paws on the ground.  For some reason, when Panda is out of ‘her’ room, she is not so secure and it not receptive to being pet. 

 Check out this video to see how sweet Panda is once she gets to know you

Although Panda has been in a foster home with children, other cats and dogs, I think she would like to be in a quieter home with grown children and adults.   She enjoyed interacting with the resident cats, and peacefully co-existed with the dogs.

If you have patience to warm her heart, and gain her trust, she will fill your home with gratitude and warm your heart.  It takes a special person to gain the confidence of a shy cat.  When a shy cat is moved to a new environment, she will have to start all over to gain the trust of her new family.  Interactions with a shy cat will be slow.  Initially placing her in a room of her own would be ideal.   You will most likely need to make frequent visits to her new room, just sit in a chair or lie on the floor and just talk to her, letting her get to know your voice. Little by little, she will start to get closer and want to be pet. She needs time to learn to trust you.  You will need to let her come to you at her own pace. You will need to only pet her when she wants to be petted, and let her walk away if she feels scared.  This process could take a week, two weeks, or even months.  We will help with this process by providing information to help with the transition.  We also found a great book that we will give to you with your adoption: "Miss Hazeltine's Home for Shy and Fearful Cats".

 

 Behaviorally and socially, it’s best to adopt kittens in pairs, or into a home with a playful cat. Panda would really like a playmate in her forever home…and then they can get to play, and snuggle while you're not home. Check out our Pick A Pair page to see if one of her siblings is still available…she especially likes to cuddle with her brother!  If there is already another playful cat or kitten in your house, that would work out too…she already proved she is great at making friends!   

Panda’s estimated date of birth is 9/8/14.  Her adoption fee of $50 includes:  her exam, FVRCP vaccinations, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg), routine deworming, flea control, microchip and spay.

Wiki (AKI-C-9582)

Wiki is an extremely adorable little bundle of cuteness, with very large green eyes. She can be a little shy and hesitant at first, but in the short time she has been at her current foster home she has started coming out of her shell. Her shy exterior is hiding a very sweet purring interior. She can be timid around new people, and it takes her a while to let you hold and hug her, which she loves once she gets to know you. Even though she might be a bit scared, she still starts purring, loving the attention she receives.

If you have patience and a kind touch, Wiki is eager to be your friend for life. A home with another playful cat or kitten would suit her best. Wiki is still scared of dogs and prefers the company of other kittens. A household that is quieter, and small would best suit this very shy, but amazing little girl! A family that understands that she needs some love, patience and dedication to complete her socialization would be most suited. She is currently in a foster home with kids, and sometimes joins in the kids' play, but most of the time she prefers to view all the action from a bed or a nearby couch.

Behaviorally and socially, it’s best to adopt kittens in pairs, or into a home with a playful cat. Check out our PICK A PAIR page to pick your own pair! If there is already another playful kitten in the house, she would love that too.

Wiki’s estimated date of birth is April, 22 2014 and her adoption fee of $135 includes her vet exam, FVRCP (distemper combo) vaccination, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg.), routine deworming, flea control, microchip and spay.
