a calico cat
Tree House provided Cleopatra with her own room and carpet tiles for 10 months until we found the perfect home that could accommodate her special needs.

Believe it or not, humans are not Chicago’s only residents. It’s estimated that upwards of 200,000 homeless cats live in Chicago, the vast majority without access to food, water, and veterinary care. Stray and feral cats are highly vulnerable to unnecessary euthanasia when our city’s shelters are under-resourced.
