That's the name of this 9-year-old domestic long hair cat, but there's nothing forbidden about her.
Taboo, unfortunately, has become a familiar cat around the PAWS Animal Shelter. This 9-year-old domestic long hair cat was adopted earlier in the year, but she was returned in October when things didn't work out between her and her owner. But that doesn't mean she wouldn't make a nice addition to someone else's home. Taboo might be an older feline, but she has a lot of energy and loves to play (just check out the video in the media gallery). She's a litter box-trained cat who is spayed and up to date on her shots. And even though she's playful, Taboo isn't overly aggressive or a biter. Looking for more adoptable pets?

Damon is a tiny guy with a big, friendly heart. Would he fit in at your home? Watch his video and decide.
Damon, a 1-year-old Manchester terrier, is a newcomer to PAWS Animal Shelter, arriving there Nov. 23 from Chicago Animal Control and Care. But that doesn't make him a shy guy. In fact, Damon is a playful dog, more curious than anything else. He's a small dog, weighing a little more than 9 pounds, and he doesn't have any issues or special needs. Watch the video in the media gallery to see how friendly Damon can be. Looking for more adoptable pets? Squirt is Agent Double-Oh Cute and has a license to steal your heart.

Felix and JD require the same special food. But that doesn't mean they aren't fun-loving cats. Watch the video and see for yourself.
Felix, a black-and-white domestic short hair, and JD, gray tabby, didn't know each other before meeting at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park, but they have a lot in common. Both were abandoned by their owners within days on another (Felix came to the shelter Oct. 28; JD on Oct. 30). Both are easygoing and playful. And both require a special diet. It's because of that diet that the shelter hopes to adopt them together (although it's not required). That diet also makes it difficult for them to live with other cats who don't eat the same specialized food. Watch the video and see if Felix and JD are the cats for you.

Casey and Max are a canine odd couple in real life. But the oddest thing about them is why no one has snatched them up yet.
Felix and Oscar. Bill and Ted. Riggs and Murtagh. Casey and Max? OK, these two cocker spaniels haven't entered the pantheon of onscreen buddies, but that's because they don't have a good agent. Spend a few minutes with them, though, and you'll see they have a special chemistry that comes from living together. Unfortunately, their owner had to give them up when he lost his house, and they have been at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park since Sept. 25. Max, 8, is the friendly, fun-loving type. When he arrived at PAWS, he had a benign growth on his neck that was drained and removed and hasn't caused him any additional problems. Casey, 9, isn't as outgoing, but that doesn't mean he doesn't like being around people. He also has the lighter coat…

This 1-year-old domestic short hair is looking for a safe house to come in out of the cold. Find out how you can adopt her.
Squirt is a 1-year-old domestic short hair with a stealthy, curious side to her. Maybe that's why we're going with the James Bond theme for this installment (well, that, and we really want to see Skyfall). This inside cat has been at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park since March 15. She was found as a stray, so the shelter isn't sure how she is with kids and other animals. Squirt does have all her shots and is litter trained. But she will definitely need a scratching post. There is no information on whether Squirt has a license to kill (vermin, that is); it's classified. But we're absolutely positive that she hates martinis, shaken, stirred or otherwise.

This 7-year-old feline is affectionate and easy going. Plus, she might be the only one in your home who gets your teenager.
Snuggles is a 7-year-old domestic medium hair cat who enjoys cuddling. She just needs to find an owner who will reciprocate. The cat has been at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park since Sept. 20, after its previous owner had to give Snuggles up because of a move to a new apartment that didn't allow cats. Although she's good around children, especially teens, Snuggles isn't a feline who enjoys the company of other pets. Snuggles is current on her shots and is litter trained. Looking for more adoptable pets? Baby, a playful orange, white and black striped cat, and Angel, a German Shepherd mix, still need a homes.

Angel lives up to her name with a calm, warm and affectionate demeanor. She listens to commands, especially “sit.” She prefers to be the only pet in the house.

Meet Baby, a 3-year-old Domestic Shorthair cat looking for an owner who will give her a good chin scratch from time to time.
Baby is a playful, affectionate Domestic Shorthair cat with orange, black and white fur. She is a 3 years old, and has been living at PAWS Animal Shelter in Tinley Park since May, after her owner passed away. She weighs 16 pounds, she still has her claws and she loves it when people scratch her chin lightly. Baby is also capable of jumping high, so she won't remain in corner for long. If you're interested in adoption, contact the shelter at 815-464-7298 or visit its website. Looking for more adoptable pets? Gus, an orange domestic short hair, is waiting for a new home.
