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.

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

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.

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 possibly need ongoing care for her
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.

Orlando was brought to me by a friend who had found him living in
a feral colony she was feeding. As you can see in this picture, he is
a total mush -- not feral at all -- and when she took him in she
discovered that he was not only already neutered, but front
He's been tested and vaccinated and he's ready for a home.
