~ Ferrari ~
Vroom, vroom - there I go! Hey, I'm Ferrari! I'm a six-to-eight-month-old male Black with White Domestic Shorthair cat. My coat is sleek and my eyes are a bright, vibrant yellow. I'm a friendly guy who loves people, but don't be surprised if I'm a little timid at first. Like all of the cats here, I've been through a lot and just need some time to warm up to my forever home. I didn't mind my photoshoot at all! I'm just a little shy during introductions. Speaking of, I'd love to meet you! Please submit an application for me, today. My adoption fee is $100.
~ Kovu ~
Good day! My name is Mr. Kovu. I'm a two-year-old male Gray Domestic Medium hair cat. I'm a very matter-of-fact cat who likes to hang out and do my own thing. Do you have cats at home? I'd love to have a brother or sister! Right now I'm out 24-7 in the Cat Flats with other cats. We all just hangout all day and night. I'd love a home like that too where I could spend true quality time not only with my feline friends, but with my family too. If you're looking for a single companion, I'd also get along my own! Please submit an application for me, today. My adoption fee is $100.
~ Nicholas ~
Hey! I'm Nicholas. I'm a one-year-old male Black and White Domestic Shorthair cat. I'm a really, really friendly and laid-back guy.

I'd be a great cat for somebody who is looking for an Emotional Support Animal or even a companion in general to someone who loves cats. Please submit an application for me, today! My adoption fee is $100.
~ Chex ~
Oh, hi. I'm Chex! I'm a cat. About three months old, to be exact! I'm male. Orange and white. Domestic shorthair, if you like. What's that? Is that a carrier? Just for me? Hopefully! I haven't been here long, but I do hope to find a family soon. Could it be true that it's you? I'm a kitten who doesn't want or need much. Just a place to cuddle up in - a place to have lunch. And breakfast. And dinner. And maybe even desert. Applying for me won't hurt! Please submit an application for me, today. My adoption fee is $100.
~ Bandit ~
Hello, my name is Bandit! I'm a two-year-old male Black and White Domestic Shorthair cat based in Bloomington-Normal, Illinois.

Not only does the staff do a great job of taking care of all us cats, but it also means I'm a step closer to being home with you! The people here are great, but I can't wait until I get to wake up every morning with a 'meow!' to you and 'goodnight' cuddle before bed. That's all I'm really hoping for I suppose - a place to call home. Please submit an application for me, today. My adoption fee is $100.
~ Allie ~
Hello there! I'm Allie. I'm a one-year-old female Torbie Domestic Shorthair cat. How's that? Not too shabby if you ask me! I'm a fancy feline with a distinct orange and brown coat. My eyes are also a shiny lime green. Compared to other cats, I'm very laid-back and can go with the flow easily. I don't mind being picked up, held or carried from room to room! If you have a home with a cat tower, that'd be so cool. I love standing on top of this one. Most importantly, I need a family that will take care of me at my best and worst! Please submit an application for me, today. My adoption fee is $100.
~ Charli ~
Hi! I'm Charli, the one-year-old female Torbi Domestic Shorthair cat. Do you like my nose? It's like a little heart. When I 'boop' it on you, it's to leave a little heart-shaped kiss! Kind of like a stamp of love. Speaking of stamps, has anyone checked the mail? I heard you have a shipment on the way! Did you order a 'furbaby'? Well, if not, you should seriously consider it. I'd love a cat Mom or Dad who could take care of me and be my family. After all, the shelter is a nice place, but I want to come home! Please submit an application for me, today.

Do you think you could call me one of your own? Really? That would be amazing. Please submit an application for me, today! My adoption fee is $100.
~ Melvin ~
Meow. Hello. I am Melvin. I am a cat. A one-year-old male black domestic shorthair cat, to be exact. Yes, this is me. I have the 'grump' face, but I am so much sweeter in person. Do you think the kids will want to make a 'cat meme' of me? If you don't know what a meme is, that is fine. What matters most to me is that you know how to love and care for a cat. I love people and love to be held. I can listen all day as we hang out together. Please do consider adding me to your family. I would love to be appreciated by a cat mom or cat dad who wasn't afraid to make a furbaby of a grump looking little man like me! Submit a cat adoption application for me, today.

~ Jelly Bean ~
Hello! My name is Jelly Bean. I'm a three-year-old female Seal with White Domestic Longhair cat. I've got big blue eyes and a long, fluffy tail! When the staff comes in to feed me, the rest of the cats gather around to watch. I'm not sure what you would call that, but it seems I'm pretty good at attracting another cat's attention. I'm a sweet girl who can be a little sour, but it never lasts. Speaking of, I'm hoping I can find a home that does! Please be my forever family and submit a cat adoption application, today. My adoption fee is $100.

~ Molly ~
Hi. Hey there. Hello? I'm Molly! Wait, did you hear me? Hello? Right. I'm a one-to-two-year-old female tabby and white domestic shorthair cat. I'm one of the cats the shelter likes to call 'talkative'. When you walk into Meow Manor, I'll greet you with a 'meow'! If you leave earlier than I'm ready, I'll beg you to stay with a 'meow' too. Thinking of adopting me? I'd thank you deeply with a heart-felt 'purr'. Molly is my name today, but if you wanted to change it, that would be just fine with me too, as long as you take me home! Please submit a cat adoption application for me, today. My adoption fee is $100.
~ Millie ~
Hello! I am Millie, a two-year-old female black and white domestic shorthair cat. The Humane Society of Central Illinois has been doing a great job taking care of me! They have me microchipped, spayed and up to date on all age-appropriate vaccinations. They even come in to give me cuddles and treats when I'm not expecting it! It's been such a great time, but at the end of the day, it gets to be really quiet around here. I'd love to call a place 'home' where the care and loving doesn't end when the work week does. Please add me to your forever family and submit a cat adoption application, today! My adoption fee is $100.
~ Valerie ~
Elegance. Refinement. Grace. Hello there, ladies and gentlemen. My name is Valerie. I am a two-year-old female Dilute Torti domestic shorthair cat. I'm not sure if you can see it, but the tip of my tail is white. I like to imagine it being a paintbrush and every time I flick it through the air, I'm tracing the world around me.

~ Marcy ~
Hi, I'm Marcy! I'm a four-year-old Calico domestic shorthair female cat. I was absolutely spoiled at my last home and need a forever home where I will be treated like a Queen! Or a Princess. That could work too! I really like my naps and my space and would love a Kingdom I can rule over independently. I'd like to be the only cat please!

~ Sawyer ~
Oh wow, those kittens finally stopped running. Hey there, my name is Sawyer, but all my good friends call me Eeyore! Affectionately, of course. I'm just a big ball of fur who likes to relax and hang around where I can see what's going on. I don't mind being around the kittens here at the shelter, as long as I have a perch I can call my own.

How did you find me? Hey, I'm Dapple. I'm a five-month-old female Dilute Torti Domestic Shorthair kitten. One moment I'm here, the next I'm there! I like my hiding nooks, but also don't mind being held. Could you teach me how to be loved? I'm not sure what that means exactly, but I'm hoping I can learn. A lot of cats here tell me amazing stories about the cats who leave. I heard some cats get treats, their own cat towers and even this thing called a 'family'! Something called the holidays is coming up too and apparently these 'families will take photos together. I hope I will get to be a part of something like that soon.

Hey there folks, my name is Kenneth! I am a one-year-old male gray tabby domestic shorthair cat who calls Central Illinois home. Don't you just love it out here? It's not quite the country, but it's not quite a sprawling city either. What I love most about Bloomington-Normal are the people! Not only do they have shelters like these where cats like me can find a new home, but the people who open their doors to cats in need are just the kindest. I really hope I can find my new home soon whether I have views of a historic neighborhood or fields of agriculture! Submit an application for me, today. My adoption fee is $100.
~ Maggie May ~

Submit an application for me, today. My adoption fee is $100.
~ Rex ~
Hi everyone! My name is Rex, and I am a two-year-old male cat. I am a pretty laid-back guy, and I don't mind doing my own thing.
