Really sweet mama.
I have 4 adorable babies!
Makana came to us from animal control in Chicago. They were looking for a place for them because they were getting full and if they couldn't find a place, well, we don't want to go there. Mama had a cold, but is getting better really fast now that she gets good food and care. The babies are looking good. They eat regular food and can use the litter box already. Quick learners! They're about 5 weeks old. They are very furry little kittens with tons of energy!
What does Makana mean?
The meaning of the name Makana is Gift. The origin of the name Makana is Hawaiian. This is the culture in which the name originated, or in the case of a word, the language.
Sterling, Flint & Dusk
Yes, we're adorable!
How about a 3 pack?
Sterling, Flint & Dusk
We came from a shelter and we were really sick. We struggled for some time but we are strong and we pulled through! Now we're eating and growing like crazy!! We love playing and just being healthy kittens! We will be able to be adopted soon... we dream to stay together...anyone looking for three fun kittens!
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.
Our new mama Makana! We will get more and better pictures soon. I just wanted to get these kitties posted! Mama is getting over a cold, but the babies are doing well and appear to be healthy little balls of fur!
UPDATE 12/28/2018: Makana is now all alone waiting for her spay so she can also find her forever home. She seems to be missing her babies which is sad. Sometimes the mamas don't worry, sometimes they do. Hopefully, she will realize they had to grow up an move out. She is such a good kitty. She is a sweetie and will be available for adoption soon!
UPDATE 12/17/2018: All of Makana's babies have been adopted! Wow they went fast! That's good news too. Mary and Zuzu got to go home together too! Now we just need to get Makana ready to find her forever home!
Sterling, Flint & Dusk
Here we have Sterling, Flint & Dusk! They're adorable kittens that had a pretty rough start. All three were very sick. But with a lot of care, they have pulled through and probably have rock solid immune systems more than adult cats! They are now funny kittens that love to do funny kitten things. They're hanging out with mama Makana in Kittenville. She loves them too. It's nice to see them healthy and getting big and ready to be adopted!
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.
Below are the kitties from KittenvilleUSA at PetSmart ready to find their forever homes!
Tinsel @ Wheaton PetSmart!
Tinsel is a super friendly little kitty! She came to ARF when the Animal Control facility she was at thought she was pregnant. She turned out to not be pregnant, so she was spayed and is now ready for a forever home. Tinsel is typical of most cats – she can be very independent – wanting to explore and look out the window and run down the halls. But she can also be super affectionate. She will come and hang out on her foster’s lap and purr and make biscuits and drool a little. Like most cats, she will need time to acclimate to other animals in the home. She enjoys the company of humans and would probably do better in a home with older children or without children.
Since 2012 we’ve worked with the
Animal Rescue Foundation - IL
to foster cats and kittens in the southwest suburbs of Chicago
The kitties have their own room we call Kittenville!
You can fill out an online adoption application at http://www.arf-il.org/application.html
Filling out the application does not obligate you in any way.
A completed application is required if you decide to adopt a cat.

KittenvilleUSA is the room in our home dedicated to our foster mamas and their kittens, kittens without mamas, and any other cat that may need a place to say. They don’t have to stay in a cage at some shelter, they have a whole room to run and play in.
