Meet Carlton

My name is CARLTON, and I'm RITZ'S brother. RITZ-CARLTON...get it? I'm the orange and white kitten. Did you know that in every pair, one cat or kitten is more social and outgoing than the other? One is always a bit more cautious or hesitant. Can you guess which one I am?

My favorite things are toy mice and playing with my brother. I may be a little shy (or scared) in the beginning, but I warm up nicely. It just takes me a bit longer than RITZ. I'd really like to go home wherever he goes. He's all I've known my whole life. I definitely need another kitten or young cat in my forever home! Kittens need a kitty friend and playmate to learn from, nap with, and to keep from being lonely and bored when you're away or at work - and to have a best friend for life!

Carlton can be seen at the Aurora PetSmart (976 N. Rte 59).

We encourage you to consider adopting kittens in pairs! There are several reasons why Carlton would do good with a friend, including:

   - Two kittens keep each other entertained - they will play and get all their energy out on each other in time for snuggles with you!

   - Having two kittens to play with each other prevents potential "I'm lonely and bored" behavioral issues.

   - Watching two kittens wrestle is quite possibly the cutest thing you will ever see.

   - The kittens will teach each other "how to cat" and learn to be more social with humans and people.

   - You'll save two lives instead of one!

Carlton is microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations, neutered, and litter box trained.

Carlton's adoption fee is $165. If you are interested in meeting Carlton, please fill out our online kitten adoption application at https://www.arf-il.org/adopt/application/ today!

Once your application has been approved, an A.R.F. volunteer will be able to 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

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!
