Facts about Gum Drop

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 8739963
  • Hair: Short

Gum Drop was rescued from living under a cement porch and taking refuge under a plastic bag over a lawn mower.  She was living there with her 5 kittens born about mid-April 2014 and her daughter born in probably January 2015.  Gum Drop is guessed to be just over 1 year old.  What a great mom.  She is a survivor and she is SO THANKFUL to be off the streets and into a home awaiting a forever loving home, hopefully with her teen, Tootsie Roll, as they do love each other very much.  The younger babies are being called Sugar Babies, of course!

They all have a tendency to roll over for belly rubs.  The mom and teen are the most outgoing.  The kittens have quickly learned how much nicer it is inside.  Of the 5 Sugar Babies, 4 are female: 2 torbi kittens like their mom and older sister, one torti with an orange racing stripe down her nose (too cute), and a black with white highlights.  The mostly black is the male and he is the most happy with belly rubs of the kittens.

We do not know how big the baby kittens will get, but Gum Drop is petit and we expect Tootsie Roll to be petit also.  They are mirror images of each other.

They are in foster care together.  If you would be interested in meeting any of them, please contact their foster mom at 914-713-8649, leaving a voicemail message if nobody answers and please, no calls after 9 p.m.

Thank you for wanting to save a life!

About tlc Rescue Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

tlc Rescue is a recently incorporated not-for-profit organization with pending public charity status under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

tlc Rescue was founded by three women who have actively dedicated much of their lives to ensuring that all animals (particularly cats and dogs) are not living on the streets, homeless and/or being neglected or abused. Our rescue efforts focus on Westchester County, New York, primarily in the southern end of the county.

We often work with other rescue groups and shelters, most of whom have insufficient space for all of their cats to roam freely. Our philosophy is that no cat should be caged, except when needed to address temporary medical issues. We believe that cats need room to play, lounge and interact with each other and humans in an open environment.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fees are $185 for kittens [includes any follow up vaccinations and spay/neuter at appropriate age] and $85 for teens/adults [these are adopted already fully vetted with vaccinations and spay/neuter].

We have a questionnaire and interview the potential adopter, there is a contract exchanged once the animal is adopted. We follow up in the near future once an adoption takes place to make sure the cat is doing well with it's new family.
