Because I’ve been so terrible about blogging (etc., etc., etc.) lately, I’ve decided to do an extra-special BONUS EDITION of Find-a-Friend Friday today. Yay! Let’s take a road trip to Chicago, where Broad Shoulders Animals Rescue is overflowing with cats, dogs and (my favorite! probably because I can’t adopt any!) mice! But mostly cats! Babies, adults, and seniors; brown cats, gray cats, orange cats; cats of all shapes, sizes and temperaments! Cats like Slippers here, who – with an intake date prior to 2011 – currently holds BSAR’s title of “longest temporary resident.” Let’s see if we can change that, hmmm?

More about Slippers
Spayed/Neutered • Up-to-date with routine shots • House trained • Primary color: Tortoiseshell

5/25/2011- We presumed this gorgeous 2-3 year old lady to be pregnant when we took her in which left her in a huff, quite defensive about her looks and weight. After assuring her we were worried about her health (and that she the most beautiful cat we’d ever seen) we managed to get her some medical care. The poor girl had a very bad case of intestinal worms, ear mites, ringworm and an unknown stomach issue that was causing stomach inflammation! Her lovely foster home helped her get healthy and now Slippers is ready for her adoring audience!

Slippers loves pets, cuddling, sleeping and playing with other cats. She also enjoys deep conversations about the state of affairs, along with the latest fashion trends (although she’s really more of a classical, Audrey Hepburn-dressing type). Always one for surprises, Slippers also like hard/classical rock and won’t hesitate to bring out her battered ol’ AC/DC and Led Zeppelin shirts! Underneath it all, she’d really just like a forever lap to lay her head.

All of our kitties are micro-chipped (which will be registered at no extra cost at the time of adoption), up to date on their shots, spayed or neutered, have had preventative care (including parasite treatment) and treatment for any illness they may have had while in our care- plus, one month of free pet insurance!

Please email broadshouldersrescue [at] or call (312) 612-0770 to receive an application & set up an appointment to meet our friendly cats!

Even if you’re not in a position to adopt Slippers, please spread the word! If you live in Chicago and would like to help BSAR out, they could use some assistance with photography, video editing, making and hanging fliers, dog- and cat-sitting, and (of course) foster and adoptive homes! Hop on over to their Facebook page for more!

Please and thank you. 🙂
