Hi, Im RITZ, adorably dressed-up in my "tuxedo." That other kitten, CARLTON, is my brother. My foster mom says Im sweet and cuddly. I gently squirm away when Im done. Not used to being cuddled - but Im getting better at it. Just be sure to let me go when I "ask." Im playful and curious, and the first to greet you in the morning. A bit chatty. And a trip hazard walking between your legs! Love my food, and playing in my water dish. I would love to have a kitty fountain and a tall cat tree in my forever home!! I also really want another kitten (like CARLTON!) or a young cat. Kittens need a kitty friend and play-mate to learn from, nap with, and to keep from being lonely and bored when youre away at work.

RITZ can be seen at the Aurora PetSmart (976 N. Rte 59).

We encourage you to consider adopting kittens in pairs! There are several reasons why Ritz 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 potential "Im 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.

- Youll save two lives instead of one!

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

Ritzs adoption fee is $165. If you are interested in meeting Ritz, please fill out our online kitten adoption application at today!

Once your application has been approved, an A.R.F. volunteer will be able to contact you to arrange a meeting.

Thank you for considering a rescue pet from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation! We are
based in Wheaton, IL and conduct adoption events in the DuPage County area. If you are interested in adopting one of our pets, please submit an adoption application at

Adoption appointments are scheduled based on the order of applications received, so submit your application early! 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 or schedule meetings until your application has been approved. More information about our adoption process can be found on our website here:

As an all-volunteer, foster home-based organization, A.R.F. Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals. Please visit for a list of our upcoming adoption events.

Thank you for choosing to adopt, not shop!

AAHA provides an internet-based application that enables veterinarians, humane organizations, pet owners or other persons to search various Pet Recovery Service registries and identify those registries on which a particular microchip is registered. AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
