APPLICATION REQUIRED - go to www.greatlakesbengalrescue.com to complete online application; adoption fee is $150.00. Rockford IL: Balou, Lulu for short, is a 9 yr. old female who was found in her owner’s home with several other cats after her owner died passed away. She is very curious and wants to know what is behind the door to her room. She loves to sit in the window and watch the birds. Like her friend Tess she is also still very shy when it comes to a human getting close to her. She has made great strides in overcoming her shyness since she came into a foster home but she will need a very patient person to work with her who can show her that people can be good. A quieter home with no small children or one without alot of activity would suit her best. She has been around other cats and when she sees a dog she doesn’t seem to be phased by them. She came in with another cat named Tess. Although they aren’t bonded, they are friends. They don’t have to be placed together but it would be nice if they could be. If you are interested in adopting Tess, please go to greatlakesbengalrescue.com and fill out an application.
