April — Hyde Park Cats
today at 1:41 pm
Adoptable April is very sweet and tiny. She’s about 2 years old. Here she is settling into her newest foster home.
She can be reserved, but her new fosterers report that already they hear her playing with one of the jingly balls and find her batting at the rug tassels (wake up and find the rug moved).
She is not a cuddler (probably just not used to it) but coming around to being touched and petted.
She’s definitely building confidence, and she has been a pleasure to have around so far!
April has tested positive for FeLV in the past. Her most recent test was negative but that is not a conclusive finding.
FeLV cats cannot live with other cats unless they also have FelV or have been vaccinated against it. April can live safely with dogs, however.
To meet her, write to us at [email protected] !
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(c)(3) status in 2014 and have had over 1,200 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, $125 for the adoption of one cat, or $250 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.
