We got this mama recently from a place down south. They were going to need to 'make room' if nobody could take her so of course we made room. She is very adorable. Unfortunately, soon after we got her she miscarried her babies. It was very sad. We've had babies not live before, which is very sad too, but this was the first time in all the fosters we've ever had that mama miscarried. Mama is doing well. She is eating like crazy. She is very sweet and love you to pet her. I think someone will fall for her very quickly. She should be available for adoption soon.
What does Noelani mean?
Noelani as a girls' name is pronounced no-ah-LAH-nee. It is of Hawaiian origin, and the meaning of Noelani is "mist of heaven".
I'm a sweetie!
I love Kittenville!
Busy feeding babies!
Alikae came to us from a shelter in Chicago. She just had a some babies and some of them didn't make it. The two that did were very small and so they probably weren't supposed to be arrive yet. One of them passed (Gucci) and the other is struggling. We got 4 other babies the next day who were just born but no mama around so we put them with Alikae to get her milk flowing since her little babies couldn't really do it. That was a great move since her milk has been flowing since they arrived. This helped the little ones live longer since they could get milk too.
What does Alikae mean?
Pronounced Ah-Lee-Kah, the name means guardian or protector. It has a meaning as most beautiful also.
I'm getting pretty big!
I had 6 babies!
I am from southern Illinois. I was very happy living outside. I had some humans that were feeding me and things were ok. Then they noticed I was getting a little round in the waist. They caught me and turned me in to animal control. Well, long story short, to keep from being put down, I got saved by the nice folks over at Kittenville, a very famous nice resort type place for us kitties on our way to finding our forever homes. They took me in and I'll be able to have my babies in a nice warm, safe place. Then we'll all get adopted to our forever homes.
What does Lilinoe mean?
Lilinoe originates in the Hawaiian language and means "goddess of haze."
I love cuddles!
Meet the gorgeous Savannah! Savannah came to ARF from a kill shelter in southern Illinois and we estimate she is around 4 months old. She has gorgeous long black fur with a white locket – she has a little patch of white right under her chin – just where a locket might lie (you know, if cats wore necklaces) J Her eyes appear to slant upwards which give her the appearance of always looking surprised or shocked. She is a delightful little girl. She loves to be with humans – she climbs up on our laps and wants pets and she purrs and purrs away. She loves to play with spring toys and little balls and does an excellent job of using her scratching post. She is very good about being combed – after all, a young lady likes to look her best! Savannah could go to a home with another cat – we think she would enjoy the company, but it’s not a requirement.
To talk when you don't feed her fast enough..she will let you know.
To let you know when you don't hold her quick enough.
To follow you until you pick her up.
Purr when you pet her or rub her belly.
UPDATE: Noelani is now available for adoption! She is so sweet!!! She gets nicer every day. She likes to just sit and let you pet her. She likes to follow you around to see what you're doing too. She doesn't really like to be held, but will sit on your chest or lap just fine. She is getting better though as I hold her more. She doesn't really like adoption events, but she endures and when she gets back to Kittenville she jumps from her carrier and turns back into a friendly sweetie! Why not visit her next event or try to catch her on a Kittenville Live show.
Noelani is a super sweetie. She loves to be petted and she loves to eat! She must be making up for when the times were a little more tough. She is quiet and friendly. She gets her spay soon and will be available in a few weeks!
Our newest super sweetie, Alikae! She is caring for 5 babies (Gucci passed away yesterday). She took in 4 babies that didn't have a mama with her two. They are doing fine. Her little one born a little too early is struggling, but we hope for the best. Time will tell. Say a prayer for little Dior to help her along.
UPDATE 3/18/19: Unfortunately, little Dior passed away last night. We are even more sad now. I'm glad mama has the other 4 babies so that she can continue to be the great mama she is.
UPDATE 3/17/19: The little one's are growing so fast! They're starting on real food and are very funny to watch them trying all kinds of new things. Mama can get some relief now!
UPDATE 2/16/19: We have names! Sprinkles (yellow collar), Fritter (gray collar), Beignet (lilac collar), Malasada (mint collar), Buttermilk (tuxedo color), Bear Claw (orange collar), Lagniappe (tabby color).
UPDATE 2/15/19: Mama had 7 babies! One at 11:55pm on 2/13, 5 more during the night/morning of 2/14 and then another about 1pm out of nowhere on 2/14! Seven hours or so after all the rest were born! Let's hope she's done LOL!! Names and pics coming soon...
I'm getting ready to have some kittens! In the mean time, I love to have my belly rubbed. Feels so nice, I just roll over and purr and get a nice belly massage. I hope I get those after the babies too! I'm really starting to like it here at Kittenville. I'm glad I made it here before the polar votex! Now I can have my babies in a safe, warm place. Check back for more pictures and kitten pictures soon!!!
Savannah is a super sweetie that loves to snuggle. She will follow you around until you pick her up and pet her. She just loves to sit on your lap and hang out. Still working on getting her to like the comb, but she is getting better. She can be a talker too. If you don't pay attention to her, she will let you know she is there! She really is adorable.
UPDATE 3/17/19 - Savannah is just getting so sweet and silly! She makes me laugh out loud. She still has two fangs on one side that look awesome, but the baby tooth will eventually fall out. If you hold her in front of you she will reach with both front paws as far as she can to try to get you. Then once she can grab you she will try to pull you into her. It's so adorable. She still has some nippy-ness going on but I'm working on that and it's gone down quite a bit. She is in Kittenville all alone now that Dusk went to her forever home, and when you walk into the room all she want's to do is have you pick her up and snuggle her. Absolutely adorable. She will sit on your lap being petted for hours. She will even fall asleep there. How do you get her to jump down? Food of course! She can eat!! And that's a good thing. We're trying to get her and Noelani to be roomies, but Noelani is really chill, and Savannah is very let's play...so they're not really ready to be left alone, but when we're in the room, they're ok
UPDATE 2/1/2019 - I, Savannah, just want to say on record, that Iolana is a pretty cool roommate. Sometimes, I try to tell her who is boss, but I don't think she listens to me very much. Probably because I'm just so adorable I can't pull of being tough.
UPDATE 1/28/2019 - Savannah still had both of her fangs! Her baby fang and her adult fang, so I call her fang sometimes LOL. It looks really funny but doesn't seem to be bothering her. She has a new roomie, Iolana, who will soon have some pictures up here too. More on her when she gets her own listing!
Below are the kitties from KittenvilleUSA at PetSmart ready to find their forever homes!
Iolana @ Wheaton PetSmart
This gorgeous tabby/tortie girl is Iolana (pronounced ee-oh-lah-nah). Her name means “to soar” in Hawaiian. Iolana was found as a stray in southern Illinois in November, and she was brought to animal control, where they discovered she was pregnant. However the stress of the shelter was too much for her and she had a miscarriage. ARF pulled her from the shelter and she has since been spayed and is ready to live her best life!
Iolana can be shy at first with new people and places. But once she knows you she ready for you to give her your full attention. She loves to sit on laps and be petted. She is not a huge fan of being picked up and held, but will happily come and sit where you are and purr and make biscuits to her hearts content. She loves to sleep with her foster family and can often be found waiting for them at the end of the day on the bed. And then first thing in the morning on your chest when you think you need to get up.
Iolana does get along with other cats - but like most cats she will need time to get to know them. She enjoys playing with toys that rattle and little springs - she’ll chase them around until they get lost under the furniture. She is a delightful girl who has so much to offer. Come and meet her today!
Since 2012 we’ve worked with the
