Support Cat Adoption and Rescue. Why go to a cat breeder or pet store to buy a cat when you can adopt?

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We practice and advocate TNR - Trap, Neuter, Return of feral cats in the Marshall Square neighborhood! We return feral cats and pull kittens that are still young enough to be socialized. We work hard to find good homes for the kittens. Occasionally we will find a friendly stray and help it find a home too.

About Our Rescue Group:

We started this is 2006 - we moved into a part of Chicago with a very high feral and stray cat population. We love animals and want to be part of the solution not the problem. All our cats are fixed at either Tree House Humane Society, Paws Chicago or Anti-Cruelty Society.
**We currently do not have any cats and can not take in any**

Come Meet our Pets:

When available, adoptable cats can be seen via appointment only. Please check out blog for updated pictures, stories and their latest antics.

Our Adoption Process:

There is an adoption application and contract. We will take returns for any reason - our cats are family and always welcomed back. We check personal references and vet references.

Adoption Fees:
Healthy adult cats: $75
Healthy kittens: $100
FIV+ or FeLV+ cats: $50

All cats are spay or neutered, virus tested, rabies vaccinated, given (at least) their first distemper vaccine and microchipped prior to adoption.

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.

"History
Munchkin is a naturally occurring, domestic cat breed characterized by unusually short legs. These short-legged cats have been documented in 1930s in England. But World War II took its toll on the cat and threatened the extinction of this species. These cats were rediscovered in Europe in 1980s. Breeders undertook measures to conserve this breed and since then this breed has flourished. Recently it has been accepted as breed by TICA. "

How do minor cat breeds become a real pedigree cat breed?

A cat that no one recognizes, such as a Napoleon or Kucing Malaysia.. How are they recognized to be true pedigrees? What do they have to go through? And is it even possible to reinvigorate an almost dead cat breeding attempt?
If you happen to have knowledge on the Kucing Malaysia cat, please tell me about them!

In order to be a recognized breed they have to be accepted by a majority vote by the registry's board members. IE, TICA has monthly meetings of all its Regional Directors. At that time breeders will propose that a not-yet-accepted breed me accepted as an "Experimental New Breed". Next step would be acceptance as a "Preliminary New Breed" and finally "Championship Breed".

Very unlikely the Napoleon will ever be accepted by any registry as it's combing the Persian or Exotic Shorthair with the Munchkin - a dwarf breed. Most Persian and Exotic…
