Meet the newest Hyde Park Cat!


At yesterday’s AWL volunteer day we were able to spring a 5-month-old kitten from the shelter and bring him into one of our foster homes. His new fosterer already sent in these great photos and writes that he is such a sweetheart, already playing and exploring.

More info on this little sweetie (including a name!) to come soon. Stay tuned!

Dempsey and Yaya, a mother/son bonded pair, seek forever home

Dempsey and Yaya

Dempsey and Yaya

Yaya and Dempsey are a bonded mother/son pair looking for a home together. As you can see, they are inseparable (and adorable!). Their fosterer writes:

Yaya is a mellow and caring cat who enjoys sitting on my keyboard whenever I attempt productivity and watching tv together. She likes watching tennis (or really any sport) and is a huge fan of videos of birds, perking up and pawing the tv/computer screen. She’ll sleep in on weekends and follow me from room to room when I’m home. Her favorite game is chasing a laser pointer. While her son is the rambunctious one, she’s also known to enjoy a game of chase.

Watching Dempsey grow from a kitten to a teenager has been a real pleasure. He is still as playful as the day I got him. He loves toys with dangling items on a stick (see photos) and has been known to leap 3 feet (no lie!) when he’s really in the zone. He’s always instigating games with him mom, Yaya, whether by swatting at her tail on knocking a ball in her directions. Like Yaya, he is very well tempered and can be scooped up at any time– great for kids!

To meet Yaya and Dempsey, please write to us at (as always)!
