Local Patch Pets: Tommy, Mandy & Mary

Each week, we feature pets available for adoption from C.A.R.E. at Evanston's Animal Shelter.

Tommy, Mandy & Mary are truly animal orphans. The trio lived with a wonderful gentleman for many years, who loved them dearly. When their "Dad" passed away, the three cats went temporarily to stay with a relative who was unable to keep them long term.

These three friends have lived together their whole lives. They are very scared and shy and want to stay together because "we're all we've got."

C.A.R.E.'s cat volunteers add that "the three will need a lot of love and patience, and will hide (they hid in the relative’s duct work in the ceiling and had to be trapped to get them into the shelter)."

The silver lining: the three are Zucchini's Friends cats, which means you'll get a reduced adoption fee.

Is your heart big enough to take them all? "We will take some time to adjust when we get to a new home, but we promise you won't be sorry you rescued us," the cats say.

Tommy, Mandy & Mary's Stats:

  • Tommy: Domestic Shorthair, 8 - 10 years old, Orange Tabby, Neutered male.
  • Mary: Domestic Shorthair, 8 - 10 years old, Black and White, Spayed female.
  • Mandy: Domestic Shorthair, 8 - 10 years old, Snowshoe Mix, Spayed female.
  • Tommy, Mary and Mandy would do best in a quiet home with experienced cat owners. They should be able to get along with other calm cats.
  • They are microchipped, spayed/neutered, and have had full veterinary checkups and vaccines.

These are the best cats ever now. Three cats like these would not be a crowd but wonderful, loving family. You would love them! (a volunteer who has seen these three become comfortable and hopeful again. Patsy
