Some of Our Currently Available Kitties

If you're looking for a super-sweet, mellow, and friendly boy -- look no further; Sumac (aka Sam) is the cat for you. Sam is about three years old and as sweet as they come. He loves attention and is good with the two other male cats, ages 1 1/2 and 16, in his foster home. Rescued from an area shelter, he is so grateful to be in a home environment again! Sam is the perfect age, he still likes to play but is past the "climb your drapes" stage. He prefers to hang out with his family and just enjoy life. an added bonus, he immediately took to the scratching post! For more information about this wonderful cat, call 348-3903, and press 1.

Buttercup is the most outgoing kitten. She is extremely friendly and loves interacting with her foster family. She will sleep on her foster mom's shoulder at night and purrs like crazy when you give her attention. At 8 mos old, she is quite tiny for her age, so she will probably remain a petite girl.Gertie is an adorable 7-month-old kitten who was rescued from a city street when she was just a kitten. She was very scared when she first came to her foster home. Gertie and Buttercup have been fostered together and would love to be adopted as a pair. Buttercup is also a wonderful influence on Gertie because she is so people oriented. They are very cute and sweet, and they can't wait to find their forever home! Call 348-3903, and press 1 to meet them! Top of Page
Cookie is an unusually beautiful Tortie, with grey and gold/brown fur. She would love to be in a home where she can be an only pet. She will love curling up at the end of your bed and playing with her new owner--chasing laser lights, playing with fishing pole toys, and enjoying some catnip every once in a while! She'll also just be happy sitting next to you for some quiet time. Just call 348-3903, and press 1 if you would like to meet her. Top of Page
Don't miss your chance to adopt an orange tiger!! And, Richie lives up to the reputation of the orange tigers--VERY affectionate--a real lover boy! He'll happily follow you around, and may even talk to you at the same time. Want to meet him? Just call our volunteers at 348-3903, and press 1. Top of Page
Max is a super-friendly, super-affectionate, 9-month-old boy. He's a small guy with a huge heart. He seems to love everyone! Max was rescued as an infant and bottle-fed by a volunteer at a shelter in Alabama. He's been handled and loved and kept safe until an opportunity arose for him to come to NY and find a forever home. After two days of travel, Max came out of his carrier ready to explore his new surroundings and meet the next family that he fully expected to love him (and we do!).

Max is a lap cat. He's full of energy (and a bit under-foot because he loves attention) and very playful...but when he's ready to settle down he looks for a lap. And after only a couple of days he was best buddies with the other three cats in his foster home (ranging in age from 1 ½ to 17 years.) Max is a special boy -- and we hope to find a special family to give him the life and love he deserves. For more information about Max, call 348-3903, and press 1. Top of Page

She adores being petted and will curl up on your lap for a nap until it's time for another bout of play with her toys.

I was abandoned by my original family, and then I thought I'd found a home but that owner had to give me up. I really am such a nice boy (in addition to being very handsome!). I'm sweet and gentle, and my foster parents say I am so easy to have as a member of a household. I may be a little shy at first, since I've had a few rough turns in my life; but, I will settle in pretty quickly, and then I'll show my true self--affectionate, outgoing, and loving! I would really love to find a permanent home by the holidays; please call 348-3903, and press 1 if you'd like to meet me! Top of Page

I am the sweetest, friendliest and most loving adult cat my foster parents have ever met! My owner was evicted and left me behind. A very kind neighbor took me in and contacted Animalovers to find me a forever home. Since I am completely gentle, I would be an ideal pet for children, the elderly, absolutely anyone. I like attention almost all the time and I enjoy being in a lap or beside you. I even greet you at the door and love to cuddle up with you in bed at night. Kitties simply don't come any sweeter than I am. Whoever adopts me will have truly struck gold! Are you ready to meet the most loyal friend you will ever have?
