Being surrendered to a shelter at an older age can be extra stressful and confusing to a pet. Please help spread the word about these two great kitties that need homes... and consider adopting yourself!
Beautiful little Rosie's world has been turned upside-down. Rosie's "mom" became quite ill and could no longer care for her 3 cats so they have come to The Anti-Cruelty Society. At 12-years-old, Rosie has lost her home and her family and doesn't know what to do. She is very scared in new situations, but is a gentle, snuggly lap cat once she is comfortable with someone. Rosie has her moments of playfulness, but is mostly calm and quiet. While she has lived with other cats, her previous owner thinks she would probably be happiest as an only cat. Rosie has no teeth due to a prior illness, but she is otherwise in great shape and very healthy. She needs a quiet home with someone who will help her settle in and allow her to be the sweet doll she is. Might that someone be you?
Introducing Buddy! This big hunk of handsome doesn't understand why he and his feline roommates are in a shelter after so many years of being doted on in a home. Buddy is 9-years-old and he was surrendered to the Society (with Rosie) after their "mom" became quite ill. Buddy is a bit nervous in new places and will need a slow introduction to his new home. He is social, but not clingy, once he settles in. Don't let his age fool you; he is still spry and playful and can really show a catnip mouse who's boss. Buddy may playbite when over-stimulated so soft, gentle petting is best. Buddy has some hairloss which our vet suspects is due to an allergy; a sensitive skin diet is recommended. Buddy is trying oh-so-hard to be brave, but he could really use a hero of his own - might that be you?
The Anti-Cruelty Society is located at 510 N LaSalle, Chicago, IL 60654.
