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.
A friend is currently holding Tippy to try to get her better socialized -- and
may decide to keep her.

Bubbles and Snuggles were brought to me along with their mother (who was
They're bouncy, active kitties 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 sweet.
They have an unfortunate history of ganging up on other cats in the room and
bullying them -- but they're great with each other and recently they've been
befriending some of the others, playing instead of chasing and even sleeping
The only way I can tell them apart is that Snuggles has a white patch on one
side of her mouth.

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.

Kathy was born to a feral mother in a filthy basement. Her mother has
been spayed and released, but she and her littermates were young enough
to learn to trust humans.
Oddly, when a friend helped me get better photos of them I discovered
that they loved to be cradled upside down like human infants! Most
All the kittens have been adopted except for Kathy. Did you know that
nobody wants black cats?

May is a feisty, playful, very lively little girl. She was spayed today.

Crisco, Kitlain and Onyx are brothers. They were born outside and should have grown up feral, but they're exceptionally nice
boys who decided they like people.

Hamlet was found by a lady named Ophelia, who thought he was
a female. I was going to name the cat after her -- except that he
turned out to be male. Hence the name.
Hamlet is indeed a Prince. He's trusting and friendly, good with
my other cats and my dog and very vocal. That and his slim lines
make me think he's part Siamese.
He's also quite young; I think he'll be bigger than he is now.

Pookie is a sweetheart of a cat: a big, gentle mush.
And yes, those are polka dots.

Dibs has the makings of a nice guy, but he's not quite there yet.
He 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 I can not only pet him, but pick him up -- and
he reaches out for me when it's feeding time and he's begun to
With a little patience he'll be a sweet pet.

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.
A friend has been fostering her because I have no cage space;
this photo was taken when she brought her over today so I could
give her her second vaccination. As frightened as she was in a
new place, she was perfectly easy to handle.
