For Cat Lovers In Chicago

I met someone today. He was so handsome and an incredible flirt. He had short gray hair and a low deep voice. His name is Moses. He is seven and a domestic short hair. For those slow on the uptake, he is a cat. An adorable handsome boy cat. I met him at Felines, Inc.

Felines, Inc. Website

Felines, Inc. is a no kill cat shelter in the Edgewater Neighborhood of Chicago. I went over there today to learn more about there organization.

Here is what their website says: "Founded in 1977, Felines Inc. is a licensed cageless, no-kill cat shelter located on the north side of Chicago.

As a not-for-profit 501(c)(3), Felines Inc. is funded almost entirely through membership, adoption fees, fundraising events, and the generous tax-deductible donations of caring individuals like yourself. We do not receive any federal or state funding.

We care for over 160 cats and kittens in our two floor house. Our small but dedicated staff tends to the daily needs of the cats and, with our highly valued team of volunteers, spends time with helping to heal the bodies and souls of the injured, abandoned and abused cats brought to our shelter.

Our goal is to find the right lasting and loving home for each of our residents. We work with our adopters to find the right cat for them, with the understanding that a lifelong relationship is about to begin. We follow up on all our adoptions and are available for consultations to help ease the cat's transition into its new home.

Every cat admitted to Felines Inc. is examined by a vet, is spayed or neutered, and is kept up to date on all their vaccines. Most of the procedures are carried out on the premises by a skilled team of vets and vet techs. "

It was a really incredible experience to see all these great cats who need homes.
