Meet Fred & Charlotte (Bonded Pair)

Hello! Fred and Charlotte, dad and daughter, are a playful, sweet, super-soft, bonded pair in need of a great home. Fred is 1-2 years old (dark tabby and white) and Charlotte (calico) is about 10 months old (as of July 2022). They are the best of both in terms of a bonded pair—one young adult and one older kitten. They come with all new cat equipment (i.e, litter boxes, carrier, cat tree, stainless steel bowls, etc.) for the new owner courtesy of the foster mom in order to offset the double adoption fee. They love to play together, sleep together, and need a person who appreciates the importance of keeping them together. Kids and dogs are okay but new owner will need to take some time introducing them. Would be best if Fred and Charlotte are only two cats in household, but will consider existing cat households. Probably the best type of household is where someone in household is at home during the daytime (homemaker, college student, work-at-home, retired person, etc.) who has lots of time and energy to pay attention to them and bond with them.

They were found/rescued in Cleveland last fall by foster mom’s college son who took them (and Charlotte’s mom, Fern, who the son is adopting) after a total stranger happened to be moving; this person was minutes from putting all three cats outside, and simply asked the college student if he wanted them. They were brought back to Illinois to be fostered by college son’s mom and are eager to be in a forever home. Please consider adopting this wonderful pair of felines; they can be easily seen by appointment at the Wheaton PetSmart and at most of the Wheaton PetSmart cat adoption events.

Fred and Charlotte are micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and litter box trained.

Fred and Charlotte's combined adoption fee is $270. If you are interested in meeting Fred and Charlotte, please fill out our Online Application today!

Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting.

All pets adopted from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation include the following as part of their adoption fee:

  • Spay/neuter or a certificate for a low-cost spay/neuter when medically recommended
  • Microchip and registration, a permanent identification to reunite lost pets with their owners
  • Initial de-worming and flea and tick treatment
  • Age-appropriate testing for heartworm/FIV-FELV

  • Pre-adoption medical exam
  • A certificate for a free healthy pet exam at one of A.R.F.’s participating veterinarians within 7 days of adoption
  • Offer for a no-risk 30 day free trial with Trupanion pet medical insurance

If a cat or dog is on our website, it is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, submit a no-commitment application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved in approximately 3-5 business days.

We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.

A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals.  The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we give priority to pre-approved applicants.

If you’re invited to meet an animal:

  • Plan to arrive on time (or early), as we cannot hold animals for any reason.
  • All human household members and dogs (if adopting another dog), must be present in order to be considered as a potential adopter.

Thank you for your interest and cooperation!
