Cats for Adoption
Tippy has been here since last summer. She came in as a kitten found
abandoned in an alley and is now about a year old.
She's active and playful, but shy with people she doesn't know.

Bubbles and Snuggles were brought to me along
with their mother (who has been adopted).
They're bouncy, active kittens who
are curious
about everything.
They both love to have their
backs scratched
. Bubbles (the male) is the bolder of
the two. Snuggles (his sister) is a little timid, but

Bluebelle was one of two cats abandoned in a carton in Prospect Park a few
days ago. She's about four years old, had already been spayed and is very
unhappy about being in a cage in a strange place. But there's been no aggression
at all from this sweet girl: just a little growling and complete withdrawal.
What's interesting is that if I take her out and hold her she becomes a different
cat, purring like mad even if I'm combing her and pulling her fur. She just hates
the cage!

Milton was abandoned in front of my building. He was very small
for an adult (and will probably remain small). 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
None of this has fazed him in the least. He's a happy, active, playful
kitty who loves to have his belly rubbed.

Morris was living with a feral colony and not doing well: he
was sick, had a piece of barbed wire in his hind leg and was
infested with parasites.
He has now recovered and is ready to be placed in a real

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

Ash Wednesday is a perfect cat: beautiful, outgoing and gentle.
But she was returned from her adoptive home -- with tears -- because the other
cats living there elected her their victim and bullied her into hiding.
Sometimes these things happen...
We hope she'll find another home soon.

Carlos, Carla, Katie, Kismet and Kathy were
born to a feral mother in a filthy basement. Their
mother has been spayed and released, but they are
young enough to learn to trust humans and are up
for adoption. Carlos has been neutered, but the
others (all female) are just a little too small
At this point they can all be handled, but they're
still skittish and will need a home where they can
continue to be socialized.

Oddly, when a friend helped me get better photos
of them last night I discovered that they love to be
cradled upside down like human infants! Even
Katie, the shyest of the lot, went limp and let her
head hang down. Most unusual!

Major is almost old enough to neuter, but not quite.
He's a feisty, playful, very lively little guy.

Patch was already neutered when he was found and he's a trusting, gentle
guy. Who would have abandoned him -- and why?

Flora was found in a basement, but clearly wasn't born there: somebody had
gotten rid of her because she was ill. She was very thin, refusing food and
suffering from severe diarrhea. She's still a little thin, but the medication
worked and she's gaining ground. I hope to be able to get her spayed soon.
