Heartland Animal Shelter in Northbrook has several sweet cats who need loving homes.
From its website:
Batman and Robin
Batman and Robin are two bonded 5-year-old brothers. This dynamic duo was adopted as kittens from Heartland, but their family had to move and did not want to take them with. They were described as being super affectionate and cuddly in their former home.
Batman and Robin are definite lap cats, too! Batman has an attractive orange and white coat and Robin's is cream and white. Two cats are twice the fun, so won't you consider opening your heart to this sweet pair?
Batman and Robin's adoption fees include up-to-date vaccinations, deworming, microchip, neuter, a FIV/FeLuek test, and a free vet exam within two weeks of adoption.
Purris Hilton is a lovely black feline and just like any movie star, looks all dressed up with the stunning white diamond of fur on her chest. Purris is 5 years young as of April 2012. Just as her name indicates, this little lady loves to purr loudly; pet her and she will even roll over and let you rub her tummy.
Volunteers have noticed that once Purris really gets to know you, she'll run over to welcome you. She likes to rub her body around your ankles and will even stand up on her hind legs to show off for you. Scratch boards and string toys are among Purris's favorite things.
For pleasure, she loves to watch the action around her, especially the birds outside. It is a double treat for Purris to be brushed or combed while she is in her cage, because then she can eat while enjoying her beauty treatment.
Heartland Animal Shelter has a vision to eliminate euthanasia to any adoptable animal. Heartland asks for your support by spreading the word about the importance of why pets should be spayed or neutered in order to prevent overpopulation of cats and dogs. They really believe that "Together, we can make a difference!"
