Name Age Breed Sex Status Declawed Status
Biscuit 1Y 3M Domestic Shorthair Male Available None

Warm and fluffy are great words to describe me, and I go well with almost everything. I also like "making biscuits." If you're familiar with cats, you know what that means. I can be a busy guy and sometimes I might play rough so another playful cat in my new home might be fun. I don't like to be bored, so I want everyone to be prepared for that before taking me home. If you're looking for a nice young guy to complete your family, and you're ready for rambunctious cat like me, ask to meet me!

Bridget 2Y 4M Domestic Shorthair Female Available

All I need is 24 hours in my new home and I'll be up on all the gossip.  Beware, though, that I might spill some of your secrets. I'm a good listener, but an even better talker. So, if you're searching for a quiet kitty to complete your family, sorry, but I'm not that girl. Besides talking, I like to play with toys, run, jump and eat. Oh, and did I mention I like to eat? (Get the picture?) I love my food, and I do require a special prescription diet… one for cats with sensitive stomachs. I might like to live with another cat, but I don’t know for sure, and I've never met a dog. C'mon and check me out! 

Catarina 4Y 0M Domestic Shorthair Female Available No

Some people might say that I'm a stereotypical cat, coming to you when I want attention.  What's wrong with being the stereotypical cat?  I just ask that I'm not bothered while I'm sleeping.  I'm generally pretty calm, but when the mood strikes me, I like to chase little mouse toys. I don't mind some other cats, but I'm not too sure about dogs; if you ask me, they're big, clumsy, noisy, and they smell weird.  I think children in my new home should be at least 8 years old.

Emma 3Y 3M Domestic Shorthair Female Available No

I was found wondering the streets of Chicago and thanks to the nice people at NAHS, I get a second chance at finding my forever home. I am a sweet cat that LOVES to be petted. I can probably live with another cat, and maybe even a gentle dog. Children in my new home should be older since I can still be unsure about new situations. If I sound like the cat you're looking for, stop by and say hi soon!

Fifi 7Y 3M Domestic Shorthair Female Available No

Bonjour mes amis! My name is Fifi, and I am one sweet girl who enjoys being adored and pampered by my human companions. When the mood strikes, I can be quite playful and sometimes rambunctious, especially if catnip and mouse toys are involved. Please don't ask me to share my new home with other pets -- I really don't care for them. It's all about me; can you blame me for wanting you all to myself? If there are children in my new home, I think it's best if they're at least 8 years old.

Gypsy 5Y 11M Domestic Shorthair Female Available No

Hi there, my name is Gypsy! Don't you just love my unique coloring? I think it gives me a lot of character. I came to NAHS because my owners didn't have enough time for me, so now I'm looking for a family that is going to give me all the love and attention I deserve. I can be a bit shy at first, but once I warm up to you I am very affectionate and playful. I might be okay living with another friendly, mellow cat and a calm, gentle dog might be fine as well. Because I can be a little shy at first, I think children in my new home should be at least 5 years or older.

Jozzlyn 7Y 0M Domestic Shorthair Female Available No

So I found myself roaming the streets of Naperville all by myself; I was scared and confused! Since I came to NAHS, my life has taken a turn for the better.  Everyone is so nice to me, but there's no place like home. I'm sweet and playful, but I'll need a family who's experienced with cats.  I'm the type of girl who'll let you know when I've had enough attention. I'm okay with other gentle cats, but no dogs, please!

Lady Elaine 5Y 0M Domestic Shorthair Female Available No

I'm Lady Elaine!  It's a regal name for an elegant girl like me.  I'm pretty easygoing and will do best in a nice quiet home where I can relax and find a comfortable spot to nap.  I may be okay with another cat but I don't know how I'd do with a dog.  I will add a touch of elegance to any home I go in!

Loretta 2Y 2M Domestic Shorthair Female Available

If it weren't for the kindness of strangers, I might not be here (or anywhere) to tell my story. I was found in an Oklahoma cornfield nursing a litter of newborn kittens. When I came to NAHS (after a long ride with a bunch of dogs), I'd really never had anyone to care about me. It's taken me a while to get used to attention, but sometimes I even ask for it now. I need a very patient, understanding family who willl let me get used to new surroundings on my own schedule. Going to a new home where nothing is familiar to me will be stressful and scary. When I'm comfortable and trusting, I'm quite playful and curious. I'd be best in a calm home with older kids.

Morrison 1Y 7M Domestic Shorthair Male Adopted! No

Instead of your brown-eyed girl, I can be your golden-eyed boy. (Only people of a certain age will know what I mean.) I also kind of resemble the famed Morris the Cat. I certainly have a lot going for me, don’t I? I'm a gentle, affectionate guy who can be playful, but sometime shy when I'm unsure about the situation. I like kids and am here only because someone in my home was allergic to me. If you're searching for a cat like me, stop looking now. I'm your guy!

Topher 0Y 11M Domestic Shorthair Male Available No

Like the actor for whom I'm named, I enjoy the spotlight and the accolades, but when I'm overwhelmed by the situation, I might take a step back and watch from afar. I enjoy playing, eating, sleeping, watching the birds outside from the safety of my own home, and attention from my humans. And, while I've never lived with another cat, it's possible I would like it. It might be nice to have a pet of my own. (tee hee)! I'm quiet and very tidy -- I'm no trouble at all. The only way for me to prove that to you is for you to give me a forever home. C'mon, what's stopping you?
