Mama Ava is doing well in her foster home. She is shy and still wary of people but is now wanting be petted for longer period of time and can be petted from her back to her sides. She really likes her tail petted. ! She is getting there with patience.
She also now places her toys in her water bowl.
Mama Ava was originally part of a TNR (trap-neuter-return) program, as you can tell by her tipped ear. Cats like this usually do well in a home with another more social and confident cat who can mentor them.

Hyde Park Cats is a local, all volunteer group dedicated to helping stray and homeless cats in and around Chicago's Hyde Park. We received our 501©(3) status in 2014 and have had over 1,000 adoptions since our founding in 2008. See all our adoptable kitties on our webpage: http://hydeparkcats.org/adopt/
All of our cats are in loving foster homes, which means the cat you adopt will be familiar with the sounds, smells and movements of life in a home and accustomed to living with humans. He or she has been interacting on a daily basis with people who know this particular cat intimately, and the foster mom or dad can tell you all about the cat's individual personality, habits, preferences. You can't judge a cat by its cover! And while we can't predict the future or know everything about a cat, we can help you choose the cat who is right for you. We have an adoption application and an adoption fee, $95 for the adoption of one cat or $190 for a pair. This fee goes towards covering their vet costs. All cats adopted out by us are neutered/spayed, micro-chipped, tested for FIV/FeLV, and treated with Revolution.
