About Our Shelter:

The Independent Cat Society is a no-kill cat shelter in Westville, Indiana. We're conveniently located about one hour east of Chicago, 2.5 hours north of Indianapolis, and only 45-minutes west of South Bend, Indiana.

Since we were founded in 1977, our goal has been to find homes for homeless cats in our community. Once each cat is spayed or neutered, we focus on adopting the cat into a safe, loving and lasting home.

As a not-for-profit 501(c)(3), the Independent Cat Society is funded almost entirely through membership, adoption fees, fundraising events, and the generous tax-deductible donations of caring individuals, like you. Although we have a small cleaning and medicating staff, we operate our shelter mainly with volunteers. We do not receive any government funding.

Every cat admitted to our shelter is examined by a vet, is spayed or neutered, and is up-to-date on vaccines and necessary medical treatment. Our no-kill policy means we do not euthanize cats unless a veterinarian advises it to relieve suffering.

Many people think animal shelters are a sad place to visit. Not true! The Independent Cat Society is a happy place, where the animals are healthy are well cared for. We always feel good visiting the shelter, and we're sure you will, too.

If you would like to be a part of our life-saving mission, as a donor, volunteer, or adopter, please contact us, tour the shelter and meet our "family."

Our Adoption Process:

You may adopt a cat or kitten from us, for a $75 adoption fee. For this fee, your cat will have had: a vet exam, spay or neuter surgery, feline leukemia and FIV tests, age-appropriate vaccinations, treatment for worms and fleas, an identification tattoo, a temporary cardboard cat carrier, and a free exam at a participating veterinarian within two weeks of adoption.

Our goal is to find loving, safe and responsible homes for our shelters’ cats. We take our adoption process seriously, so we review adoption applications carefully.

If you're interested in adopting from us, visit us on the weekend. Be prepared to spend at least 30 minutes talking with our adoption counselors and completing an adoption application.

To adopt from us, you must: be 21 years of age; have a valid ID with current address; bring your family or roommates with you; and be able to provide name and numbers for your landlord, your employer, your veterinarian, and personal references.

I have a munchkin. The disposition

by countreeprincess

Varies from cat to cat but the ones I've been around have been very lovey and playful. They tend to stay "kittenish" longer and they do NOT have any trouble doing anything a cat with long legs does. They can have the common health problems of most cats and may(mine didn't/don't)sometomes have later life arthritis/joint disorders. Cattery cats from bad catteries also have a higher risk of URI,FIP and other "communal" diseases.
When you find a breeder/s look for cleanliness,check bloodlines and breeding records,ask to see vet records/tests and see where the cats are kept(i.e not caged unless in season) ask for references from other show people and buyers

Munchkin cats?

I looking for a munchin kitten in orlando FL, does anybody know is there a breeder in Orlando, FL? thanks

I would do a google search for Munchkin cat breeders. Or get a Cat Fancy Magazine they have Munchkin cat breeders advertisments in the back of the magazine. Be careful buying Munchkins. They have inherited Heart problems that come with the minature legs. 70% of Munchins born with the dwarfed legs have weak or enlarged hearts. Its just a thing that runs in the genetics because of the severe inbreeding amoung close relatives to get the dwarfed legs. Be sure they are fully vetted and if they arent i would go right to the vet after you buy one and have his heart checked.
