Cyclops, a feral guy from the MJK alley, was trapped on Thursday, neutered on Friday. On Saturday evening, he was back in his alley, looking unfazed by the experience. He had a nasty eye wound that was originally worrisome (hence the name) but it was treated and is healing nicely. Stay safe, Cyclops!

Max is a very trusting and incredibly sweet cat, according to fostermom Hamsini. "His main concern in life appears to be maximizing the amount of time he spends snuggled up against you. He is the epitome of mellow--the claws never come out," she says. "He likes to talk, whether it is to let you know that he's hungry, that he's enjoying his belly rub, or that he has once again successfully pooped in the litterbox. When you're not around, he enjoys gazing at the outside world and snoozing on sunny windowsills."
Max was found wandering around the Portage Park neighborhood by Rome, who had recently adopted a cat from PAWS, and therefore could not keep this new find. Through detective work we learned that Max was originally microchipped at Animal Care and Control in 2005. Max, like many of our 'friendly' street cats, may have simply been put out when he was no longer wanted.
Another plus: his shiny, silky soft coat hardly sheds at all. Max is neutered, neg/neg, vaccinated, and ready to go to his furrever home. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to apply.

Smoke is a handsome and loving young male picked up off the streets of northern Hyde Park. Fostermom Ashley writes that "he adores shadows and is fascinated by any form of reflected light. For example, when I work at my desk and the outside light is just so, reflecting off of the face of my watch and onto the wall, Smoke will sit there for at least an hour following and playing with the light as it travels across the wall. He also loves curling up inside of semi folded boxes and hiding under tent-like structures (a blanket thrown over a chair, tissue paper that has fallen to the floor, etc.). He is a voracious eater--this cat loves cheese and will steal it from plates and counters if you are not careful. Lately he has been particularly vocal in a call-and-response kind of way. I speak to Smoke, Smoke meows, and so on. Smoke also enjoys perching on the counter and peeking into the shower when it is running. He gets just close enough to feel the spray, but not get too wet.
Most nights Smoke will jump into bed when I do, nestle down across my shoulder, and rest one or both of his paws softly on top of my cheek and across my neck. In the morning, he is a sure fire alarm clock--letting me know when he is feeling ready to eat by softly touching my face with his paw and meowing."
If you are seeking a soft and loving snuggly pillow pet, look no further. Smoke is waiting.
