A tortie kitten named Ingrid

Ingrid the tortoiseshell cat

It’s not every day that someone names a kitten after you! I’m honored that Cheryl, a Conscious Cat reader and volunteer for Forever Home Feline Ranch in Springfield, IL, named this sweet little tortie after me.

Little Ingrid was a stray who was found wandering the streets of Springfield, IL. The folks from Forever Home Feline Ranch bailed her out of their local animal control shelter, and she is now safe with them. Ingrid would love to find her forever home and a family to love. She is very sweet and playful. She loves to be held and gives occaional love bites (she is, after all, a tortie!).

If you can give this little beauty a home, you can find out more about her through her Petfinder profile.

Forever Home Feline Ranch is a no-kill, no-cage sanctuary for cats in need of a forever home. Their mission is to eliminate the euthanasia of cats as a method of animal overpopulation. Cats will have a second chance at life. Their plan is simple: provide a feline-friendly and healthy environment for cats. The Ranch property is located in Rochester, Illinois.
