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.
I love snuggles!
New Kitty Arrival!
Tinsel came to us, a couple days ago. We found out today that she is not pregnant and will get her spay tomorrow, hang out with us while she heals and then be ready for adoption. She is very sweet and friendly. She has medium length hair. Not short, not long, but longer than a short hair. Clear as mud right, LOL. She comes right over to let you pet her and based on a couple days with her, she is a very nice kitty. I'm glad we could get her.
Well, Christmas is coming, so why not go with Tinsel for a single kitty. Seems like a good idea to me.
Our new kitty Tinsel! More pics once she comes back from getting her spay. She is a sweetie who deserves some spa time at Kittenville!
UPDATE 11/12/2018: Our little Tinsel is so sweet. She will come right over to you and sit by you or in your lap just so you can pet her. She is incredibly sweet. I can't wait to for her to get her surgical suit removed so I can comb her and make her super soft. It will be interesting to see how her hair grows now that she is getting a bunch of good food. More to come with this one!
Below are the kitties from KittenvilleUSA at PetSmart ready to find their forever homes!
Moana @ Darien PetSmart!
The stunning Moana is an absolute love of a cat! She is about 1.5 years old and was found outside as a stray earlier this summer. She was taken to animal control an after determining she was pregnant, she came to ARF to have her babies in a safe place. She had 3 beautiful babies and they've all been adopted. Moana is the BEST cat. She is insanely friendly and loves people. She is content to sit on your lap an get pets and purr away and make biscuits. She will put her nose right up to your face so you can give her kisses and tell her how sweet she is. She is also a very playful kitty - very much like a kitten herself. Moana had a hard life before she came to ARF. At one point she was shot with a BB gun. She has a few broken teeth because of this and she has a BB still lodged on the left side of her face. It doesn't bother her and our vet is comfortable leaving it rather than attempting to remove it. None of these past incidents have impacted her behavior - she is a lovely, playful, sweet, friendly cat.
Moana has not been a huge fan of other cats to this point - but she was recently spayed so once her hormones settle down she may become more accommodating. You can find more about her at facebook.com/kittenville.il where her foster mom has documented her time in foster care.
Since 2012 we’ve worked with the

The kitties have their own room we call Kittenville!

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.
