Local Illinois Cats in Need of Immediate Adoption (Illinois/Wisconsin/Indiana)
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE– Cary, Illinois, October 2017: Over forty cats have been rescued from an abandoned home in the North West suburb of Barrington. The abandoned cats were hiding in run-down kitchen cabinets, inside of upholstered furniture, and anywhere there was room to squeeze into.
The cats that were rescued are now living in temporary care. Within the past few weeks they have all been medically treated. The abandoned cats have been neutered and spayed, blood tested, micro-chipped, and dewormed. Hands on volunteers have been working the cats daily in order to gain their trust.
From the original forty-two cats rescued (plus three kittens whom came post rescue), all but seven have new homes. Below you will find the descriptions of the seven remaining cats. Please note that the cats that have been rescued require homes with patience and abundant love given the past trauma of being abandoned.
Meet the Cats
Charles (seven year old male) and Camilla (nine year old female): Charles and Camilla have a sweet disposition and have become extremely trusting simply by being crate mates. The two are to be adopted in a pair as well as being placed into a calm home.
Duke (three to five year old male): Duke is quiet and reserved when alone. He would be well suited in a home with another cat in which he could socialize with.
King (three to five year old male): King is currently working on social skills. Preferably, King should be adopted into a home as an only cat or a home with a young female cat.
Knight (three to five year old male): Knight has had a hard time adjusting until recently. Knight is becoming more relaxed and would prefer to be in a home where the owner has patience to gain his love and affection.
Joker (six month old male) and Jester (6 month old female): Joker and Jester are crate mates that have been together since the rescue and are adjusting very well. The two must go together into a home that does not have other cats.
