Cats for Adoption
Bubbles and Snuggles are siblings, but can be placed separately.
They've been here for much too long, possibly because people think I wouldn't
separate them. Not true!
They're perfectly friendly with me, but timid with strangers.
I hope someone will have the patience to wait them out until they're ready to make
friends.

Milton was abandoned in front of my building. He was very small for an
adult (he's grown!). Both his eyes were scarred and there was some doubt
about whether he could see. Since his arrival one eye has had to be removed
-- and the other is clouded.
None of this has fazed him in the least. He's a happy, active, playful kitty
who loves to have his belly rubbed.

Twinny was found behind my building, probably just dumped. She's a beautifully marked tabby with a very sweet disposition.

May came to me in May of 2014. She's still waiting for a home all these months
later -- probably because she's black. She's a little shy with people she doesn't
know, but arches and purrs when I pet her.

Crisco came to me with two brothers, who have been adopted and are
doing very well in their new homes. All three were born outside and
should have grown up feral, but they were exceptionally nice boys who
decided they liked people.
Crisco is a very gentle cat, soft and snuggly. He talks to me in a little, trilly
voice: a real darling.

Dibs was taken from a feral colony when he was already pretty big (the person
feeding him said she'd been able to pet him) and was fairly horrified to find
himself here in a cage.
But at this point he loves to be petted and doesn't panic when I hold him. He's
shaping to be a lover.

Lady Greene was abandoned on the Brooklyn Bowling Green, which I
care for as a volunteer gardener.
When I first spotted her she was emaciated and terrified, but after I began
putting food down for her she decided to approach and eventually let me
put her into a carrier. She turned out to be a very gentle, sweet cat.
She loves to be petted and her motor is always running.

Janet was born on June first, 2014. She's a very lively, playful kitten who wants to
get into everything.

DeLovely is a lively, healthy kitten. She's very young, so the only veterinary work
done so far has been her first shots. But she's eating well and using the litter box

Ophelia is a bit of a mystery: she was found out on the street, already
spayed, with the tip of one ear cut off to show that she had been part
of a TNR rescue. But -- why had she been put back out if she was
friendly? Did the trapper have nowhere to hold her until a home could
be found?
Anyway, she's with me now and she'll never be on the street again:
she's a delightful cat and she deserves a home where she'll be
cherished.

Luna was found wandering the street ready to deliver kittens. She's a petite,
very sweet-tempered cat -- and we got her just in time!
She was spayed, vaccinated and tested and now she's ready for a loving home.

Feeny is a darling. She was already spayed when she was found; my vet had her
sedated and shaved before he saw her scar and a tattoo and stopped.
The person who found her told me she was very vocal (yep!) and that when she
wanted more petting she would run after her rescuer and hug her by the leg to
make her stop and pay attention to the Cat. I haven't seen that because the poor
creature is in a cage here. I hope she'll be out and in a home soon.

Domino is a very lively, playful kitty -- completely without fear.
If you're looking for a guy with a high energy level, look no further!

Nora was a bodega cat and she came to me in shocking condition: she was pregnant,
had a skin condition (granuloma), was a carrier for feline hemobartonella and needed
a dentistry. And one eye was dead.
She was spayed and got a prednisone shot for her skin; later she returned to the vet
for a dentistry that left her almost toothless. All this made me suspicious, so she was
tested for hemobartonella as well -- and sure enough, she had to go on antibiotics for
that.
And after all that, it turns out that she'll probably need ongoing care for her granuloma.
So why would you want Nora? Because she'll lie on her back and purr while you rub
her belly. She's got the sweetest soul.

Big Blue showed up in the basement of my building. He had already been neutered
and was as friendly as anything. What was he doing there? Nobody has posted any
signs about a lost cat...
He's been tested and vaccinated and is ready for a new home.

Dumpling is a sweet little girl kitten about ten weeks old.
She's had her first shot, but is still too young to be spayed.
