Hugo — Hyde Park Cats
Saturday at 11:46 pm
HUGO IS IN THE HOUSE AND ADOPTION READY! It’s been a long haul for this gentleman, from surgery to remove masses in his ear canals to a brief hospitalization for an infection. But now Hugo is healthy and ready to be adopted. Many thanks to all who donated to help with the medical costs and to Drs. Baker and Cavanaugh at Hyde Park Animal Hospital.
We did learn that Hugo is allergic to all poultry and when we finally put him on a limited ingredient diet of rabbit, the inflammation in his inner ears cleared up, and he is a new man.
Hugo is very gentle, easygoing, loves to cuddle and play. He is not at all shy, but rather confident and happy. His fosterer writes “I’ve known many contented cats, but never a happy cat. Hugo is just so happy to be feeling good, and he is full of love and cheer.” He also likes other cats, though we’re not sure about dogs. But he’s a pretty relaxed guy.

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, $95 for the adoption of one cat or $190 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.
