CHICAGO BLACK CAT - MIKITA

ABOUT MIKITA

Mikita is the star of @chicagoblackcat! After a year of posting photos and videos of Mikita on Instagram, his meow and big eyes began to draw attention. Fans started coming back for more of his adorably innocent meows and fell in love with his sweet and playful personality. He shows off his ability to do tricks for treats and impresses fans by crunching his way through raw chicken necks. Mikita is a shoulder cat and loves to be held. He was recently joined by his new cat sister Dahlia who came to us pregnant with one kitten.

EDDIE MEOWNSTER

CAT-LEBRITY

ABOUT EDDIE

This feisty bundle of fun is a two year old Thanksgiving baby, with a two year old attitude to match!
He loves to exercise, whether it’s going for walks on his leash, running on his exercise wheel, or playing in water. Don’t let that last one fool you; he hates baths!
Eddie has been featured in several Chicago newspapers and magazines for local pet Instagram accounts. When he was four months old had the chance to have a meet and greet with Key and Peele while they were promoting Keanu! You could say he’s kind of a big deal.
Even with all this excitement in his life, he’s always got time for snuggles; he is a total momma’s boy, after all!
To keep up with Eddie’s adventures, follow him on Instagram @the.meownsters and #eddiemeownster
