Facts about Shirley

  • Breed: Domestic Mediumhair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 6557687-C2014007
  • Hair: Unknown
Shirley is still a bit shy and slightly jumpy, but does not bite or scratch. She loves to be combed and petted, is super affectionate, and loves attention. She is also playful - chases after balls and leaps at strings. If you're willing to let her warm up to you then in a month (possibly less) you'll have a gentle, sweet, playful, cuddly kitty.
There's just one very small thing. Due to a severe infection she had (no longer has) she lost about 10% of her vision on the left eye. Luckily they were able to catch it early enough and preserved 90% of her vision. Other than that she is a healthy normal kitty ;) Shirley is also fully vetted and negative for feline HIV. Please contact her foster mom at if you want to adopt wonderful Shirley :)

About For Animals

About Our Shelter...

Who we are
For Animals, Inc. is a local TNR (trap, neuter, return) group. We are a New York State not for profit Corporation with (501) C-3 status, staffed and operated by people with many years of experience rescuing and taking care of abandoned animals.

What we do
The focus of our operation is a TNR program. For Animals, Inc. rescues stray and abandoned dogs and cats and then transports them to a veterinarian office where they are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and checked for general health. Afterward, they are fostered in a cage free environment until they are adopted into safe, loving homes.

Why we do it
With tens of thousands of feral cats on the streets of NYC, our focus is on TNR as an effort to humanely reduce the overall population, one colony at a time. By neutering & spaying the feral cats in the colony and adopting out friendly strays and kittens, the colony stabilizes and begins to shrink over time.
