Last night volunteer Anne V. came in to volunteer in Dog Adopts for a couple of hours…..and went home with a foster kitten!

Pegasus is this little cutie’s official name, but her foster mom calls her Peggy Sue. And boy, is she a TALKER! She has a lot to say for such a little girl (see below), and to say that she is quick on her feet is putting it mildly. Until she falls asleep and we can get her in focus, here are some [slightly blurry] pics of her in action:


And since Peggy Sue has soooo much to say, here are some words straight from the kitten’s mouth (so to speak):

Hi there! My name is Peggy Sue and I am the latest and ONLY foster kitty currently residing at the Shore. In less than 24 hrs I’ve taken a ‘walk’ from the shelter to Michigan Avenue, rode on the 147 bus, met lots of new people, explored my new ‘home’, couldn’t get out of the tub, slept like a baby thru the night, had a ‘dip’ in the tub this morning and am playing with all my brand new toys! I even like my foster mom, probably because she helped me get out of the tub & gave me lots of hugs. I rewarded her with lots of purring….she likes that!

Peggy Sue’s stats unnamed-4are as follows: She’s 2 mos old and weighs 1 lb 14 oz. She’s being fostered because she’s too young &  small for adoption right now. If all goes well (and it will), this darling little girl should be available for adoption around 08/26 or so.

Stay tuned – more pictures to follow…

I can’t believe I ate that whole bag of Temptations.

You know how they say the internet is run on cute kitten pictures? Well, here’s your proof right here.

Touchdown! Wooooo!

Sable update!

Sable is doing great! She loves the boys in her foster family, has no problem with the cats, and has even made a few new friends in the neighborhood. She also loves to sleep and is a bit of a bed hog, but who is going to say no to that face? She still has some issues with leash aggression, but she’s working on that with the help of her foster family.

Meet Salt and Pepper!

Adorable 5 year olds Salt (A30485078) and Pepper (A30485085) have settled in to their new foster home and immediately made themselves right at home.

Both of these little girls are friendly and affectionate and are getting along very well with their new male kitty housemates without conflict. While Pepper runs around and plays like a kitten, Salt is a little more reserved, preferring to sit next to you on the couch instead. They seem to love each other very much, with one never too far behind the other.

Watching TV

Both girls have super soft bunny fur, the tiniest little meows, enjoy pets and head scratches, and have been using the litter box without issue. Salt is a bit of a social eater right now but is eating both wet and dry food and really LOVES treats.

Stay tuned to see how these little girls progress over the next few weeks!

Here’s Scarlet!

Just look at this precious face!   Scarlet is waiting in foster care waiting for her permanent home.IMG_2103

This petite sweetie is almost 2 years old, and can be a little timid when you first meet her.  She warms up quickly and loves to stay very close by.


Playful and curious,  she will steal your heart…..(seriously, so cute)


She dreams about her furever home.

Party of Five Update!

Rudy and Quincy

Woot woot!  Rudy & Quincy have reached the TWO POUND mile marker!

This means that these two handsome guys are officially on the market for their forever homes!

How can you tell these guys apart (you may be asking yourself)? Well, Quincy has fine, silky, having-a-bad-hair-day fur, and Rudy’s fur feels like a thick, excellent quality wool rug. 🙂

The Party of Five is made up of five of the best-looking kittens in Chicago – JayTee, Rudy, Oliver, Adele, and Quincy.

You can see their progress report below:


And here you can enjoy some cuteness overload (though we think that there is no such thing as too much cute when it comes to kittens):
