Facts about Myra

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 6618219-C2014015
  • Hair: Short
Myra is a beautiful black kitty, about 4.5 years old (as of March 2017). She is bashful, but very eager to please and hungry for love and affection. She will grow very attached. She likes high places and is playful. A great hunter, can catch a fly out of midair. Myra is fine with other cats, but doesn't cling to them.

She may take a bit of patience and time to get comfortable, but she will bond and be very loyal. She is not assertive and will flourish when she has less competition than she has in the shelter. She really wants a bond with people.

Myra is a little chunky because she eats a lot of dry food and doesn't have much room to play. She's a big ball of sweetness!

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.

Our Adoption Process...

Prior to adopting one of our wonderful pets, you will be asked to fill out an adoption application. Upon approval, you will sign an adoption contract and pay the $125 adoption fee, which covers the cost of spay/neuter and vaccines for your new companion.
