Meet Go Fish

Go Fish is a super sweet little guy that loves running through his tunnels, chasing his siblings and playing with his favorite toys.  He loves a good cuddle puddle and is very affectionate.  He loves pets and getting lots of attention.  Wand toys and Nerf balls are his favorites.  He has the cutest little meow and isn't afraid to use it.  

Go Fish is a very special kitty.  He suffers from a moderate case of Cerebellar Hypoplaysia (aka Wobbly Kitten Syndrome).  Sounds scary, but all it means is that the part of his brain that controls his balance didn't form properly before he was born.  He can eat just fine on his own, but an elevated food bowl would be great once he's big enough to reach it.  

While his symptoms won't improve or get worse, over time he will learn to adjust to his wobbles and will become more steady on his feet.  He runs around like crazy, eats and uses the litter box like a pro.  CH doesn't mean a shorter lifespan either.  He can live just as long as any non-CH cat.  With Go Fish, you'll never have to worry about him jumping up on your kitchen counters either.

Go Fish is a very social baby and would love a home with another kitty or gentle doggie.  He craves attention and having the companionship of another four legged friend would help keep him company and out of trouble.

We encourage you to consider adopting kittens in pairs!  There are several reasons why Go Fish 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 "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!

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

Go Fish's adoption fee is $165.  Please note A.R.F. does not approve applications for any kitten under 6 months of age to families that live outside of Illinois and/or beyond 100 miles of Wheaton or Glen Ellyn, IL.

If you are interested in meeting Go Fish, 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.

Go Fish is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. Learn more about our pet adoption process.

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!
