Become a Loving Foster Parent for a Kitten or Cat Looking to help an animal find their new forever home? Don't want to make the long term commitment yourself? Why not consider fostering a cat or kitten? All vet expenses, toys, food and accessories are paid for and provided by Strays HH. As a foster home, you provide the safe, warm, and loving temporary home for the animal.
If this is something that you might want to consider, then please call the main number of 630-351-3150 to discuss it further.
Murray was found wandering the streets of Chicago. He was picked up and brought into the Cook County Shelter which is a very high kill facility. He was very dirty and stinky but also very friendly! He was rescued by SHH and immediately brought to the vet to be checked. He was given a bath and a pedicure! Murray is a very sweet, friendly boy that the vets age anywhere from 5 to 8 yrs old. and weighs around 12 1/2 pounds. At first he was said to have a heart murmur, then no murmur, so SHH had a cardiologists perform an ultrasound sound. The cardiologists said he had a level two murmur, that comes and goes with stress and he needs no medications. His full report will go home with him. He also had his teeth cleaned, no cavities, so he has a sparkling smile. Murray could either be a Maine Coon or Norwegian Forest mix since we have no proof of background, he has the personality of both, very mellow and laid back, and lets not forget the handsome looks and beautiful green eyes, he is neutered, microchipped, current with his vaccinations, negative for FIV/FeLV, dewormed, and we cannot forget friendly to both other cats and humans. Would you be interested in providing a forever home for Murray? Murray has a special adoption fee of $25. If interested, please contact Peggy at 847-884-8814 or call the main number of 630-351-3150.
