Sparky would be great for a cat whisperer who is ok with a cat that requires more time and patience, as he was fearful of his new foster home in the beginning but now that he is comfortable, he is very accepting and tolerant of their touch.
From his Foster Mom: “He gives me the “ trust you” slow cat blink all the time and will run over to check out my hand if I hold it outstretched (you got anything???). Sometimes, he'll even stay and let me pet him and I have seen indications that he is really enjoying the touch. Those moments have been few and far between, but are oh so rewarding :) Still no purring from him, but he does let me rub my head on his and give him kisses (I keep trying to hear a purr!). I do think with time and attention, Sparky has it in him to make an affectionate pet. As he is right now, he’s a good cat - he’s not fearful (with me); he’s touchable, if not affectionate; he’s not aggressive with me or other animals; and he’s given good indication that he will continue to improve socially with time and attention".
Sparky is about 2+ years old and gets along well with other cats and dogs too and with lots of time and patience, he could be your BFF for life!
All Lambertville Animal Welfare cats and kittens are living in foster homes in the greater Lambertville/ New Hope area. Because we are a foster-based rescue group we do not have a physical location that you can visit.
To best support our cats and adopters, we adopt to homes within a 30-45 minute distance of the Lambertville, NJ area. Please contact us for more information if you are interested in adopting or fostering a cat or kitten.
Our adoption fee for an adult cat is $100 ($125 for rescued Purebred or Declawed cats), and the fee for a kitten (6 months and under) is $125. This includes spay or neuter, all age-appropriate vaccinations, testing for FIV and FeLV, any other needed vet care, and a Home Again microchip.
The first step if you are interested in adopting, would be for you to send us an email with your full name, telephone number and where you live, as well as a few sentences about your current or previous pets, your living situation and anything else you think is relevant, so that we make sure there is a perfect match between our cats and adopters!
Once we receive your additional information, our Adoption Coordinator will contact you to discuss further.
We are happy to answer any questions that you may have. Thank you for considering a rescue cat.
