Cats Up For Adoption In Chicago: Adoptable Pets In Need Of Homes (PHOTOS)

Tree House Humane Society

Did you know Thursday was World Cat Day?

It was news to us too, but we figured the "holiday" was a good opportunity to showcase a new group of adoptable Chicago-area felines currently awaiting their furever homes at a number of local shelters.

To our knowledge, these furry friends have been spayed or neutered and are up to date with their vaccinations. Contact the shelter named to learn more about each animal or for help planning a visit.

If this slideshow doesn't satisfy your cute animal fix, be sure to check out past features linked below the gallery either by scrolling down or clicking here. Many of the previously featured animals still are in need of homes.
