Meet Ella

Miss Ella is the sweetest and most hilarious cat ever! I (her foster mama) saw her picture in a rescue email that was the “last call” and had already been past the deadline. Something about her face and beautiful eyes roped me in and I immediately started emailing everyone to see if it was not too late and ARF could save her. I am so thankful that we got to her right in the nick of time. She has been such a wonderful addition to our family the last couple of months and we know that she will make someone really happy.

Ella is such a lover. She gets along with my 3 year old niece and loves to run against her legs for pets and scratches. She also does this to our dogs… one loves it and the other just ignores her. She will even play with our smaller dog and runs out of the foster room whenever she can to find her.

Ella would absolutely love to go to a home with another furry friend. If you have a younger playful cat(s) or a cat-friendly dog, she will quickly make them her buddy. She loves cuddling with her foster kitty siblings just as much as she loves messing with our pup!

This beautiful girl is the complete package and loves to be held by her people too. I have worked many hours with her curled up in my lap or on my chest. She just loves to be loved whenever she can be. 

We encourage you to consider adopting kittens in pairs! There are several reasons why Ella 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!

Ella is microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations,  spayed, and litter box trained.

Ella's adoption fee is $165. If you are interested in meeting Ella, 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
  • Age-appropriate testing for heartworm/FIV-FELV
  • Age-appropriate vaccines
  • 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!
