Ellie, tabby and domestic shorthair mix

Ellie is a charming female tabby and domestic shorthair mix currently housed at Feline Friends Chicago.

No other pets please: Ellie is looking for household without other dogs or cats. Feline Friends Chicago wants to place Ellie in a home without small children. She is spayed and vaccinated. No need to worry: She's already house-trained.

Notes from Ellie's caretakers:

Ellie is a loveable lady with classic tabby markings! She purrs any and every time she is pet (and sometimes even when she’s not being pet, but just happy you’re there). Her favorite activity is to “go fishing” – though we’re sure she’d prefer real fish, we’re referencing the toy. When she’s not playing around, she is a great lounger, and can work herself into some very twisty-turny but adorable sleeping positions. Expressive with beautiful green eyes, Ellie is smart too. She’s managed to score an extra treat or two if foster mom wasn’t careful enough closing up the bag!

Qbert, Siamese and British shorthair mix

Qbert is a male Siamese and British shorthair mix being cared for at Feline Friends Chicago.

Qbert will do best in a home without small children. He has mastered his house-training etiquette. Qbert is already neutered and vaccinated.

Here's what Qbert's friends at Feline Friends Chicago think of him:

QBert just arrived! QBert would do best with an experienced adopter with another playful cat. He is a large cat so needs space and not suitable for a studio apartment. QBert was born around January 2018.
