Facts about Tagalong

  • Breed: British Shorthair
  • Color: Tan Or Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 9666638
  • Hair: Short

Tagalong was rescued from the streets before the blizzard that hit the NE near the end of January 2016.  He lit up as soon as he saw another kitty in rescue and why we named him Tagalong because he must be adopted into a home with a loving feline companion.  We affectionately call him Teddy because he is as sweet as a teddy bear.

He is cautious upon meeting people and gains trust but it may take some time.  Once he trusts you, he will seek attention - he absolutely LUVS belly rubs.  He will flop over and expose his tender belly, anxiously awaiting attention.  He loves to wrestle with the other foster kitties.

You will notice one eye squints.  He seems to have a slight discharge that occurs sporadically from the right eye.  It does not bother him.  We hope you can see past it!

Tag/Teddy is guessed to be about 7 mo old as of 1/2016, has tested negative for FIV/FELV, been vaccinated and neutered.

If you are interested in meeting Tag/Teddy, please contact us via email at or contact his foster mom, Mary, directly at 914-713-8649, please no calls after 9 p.m., est.

Thank you for wanting to rescue a kitty!

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.
