Facts about Mortie

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 032216B
  • Hair: Short
Mortie was rescued outside of an apartment in the Bronx where he was part of a large colony. But Mortie is smart and decided he wants to be an indoor cat! A goofy three year old boy, Mortie likes playing, sleeping and especially eating. He gets along well with people and even guinea pigs. He is currently recovering from his time outside and loving life. But while things are looking up for Mortie, he has tested positive for the FeLV virus.

FeLV stands for Feline Leukemia Virus. This means it's possible that Mortie could have a shortened life span, but otherwise he's a normal cat. The virus is transmittable to other cats so he should only be in the company of other FeLV+ cats. But the virus only affects cats, so Mortie can live in the company of dogs or any other kind of animal.

Right now Mortie needs a loving home and human of his own. Or, if you already have a FeLV positive cat or kitten, Mortie would be a great companion. Please give this sweet boy a chance to find his forever home!

About KittyKind

About Our Rescue Group...

KittyKind is a New York City not-for-profit, no-kill, all-volunteer cat rescue and adoption group. All of us at KittyKind have opened our hearts and homes — and emptied our pockets — to save thousands of cats from neglect or abuse. Every cat we rescue is given food, shelter, medical care, a safe place to lay his or her head and most importantly of all, a reason to purr. We do not believe in rescuing a cat or kitten only to euthanize it if it has a broken leg or needs extended nursing care. We never give up if there is a chance of saving them. We take responsibility for each and every life we save and if a cat or kitten is unadoptable, they have a home with us for life.
We believe that animals are not property to be discarded, disposed of, or killed just for the crime of being homeless or unwanted. We believe that people should be friends, caretakers and protectors of animals. We believe that we must take responsibility for the life of every animal we rescue who through no fault of their own, is abandoned, sick, disabled, old or unable to care for themselves. We are dedicated to relieving their suffering, providing food, shelter, medical care and comfort until we can place them in a safe and loving home.

Our Adoption Process...

All cats and kittens are vaccinated and tested for FELV (feline leukemia) and FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), and if old enough, are neutered or spayed.
We will ask you some questions about your home and we will be glad to answer any questions you may have. Adopting a pet is a long-term commitment. We ask you to sign the KittyKind Adoption Agreement.
We will always take a cat back FOR ANY REASON. We will also work with you to place her in another good home if (after a period of adjustment) the adoption doesn't work out.
We do ask for a $125 adoption fee to help cover some of our food and veterinary expenses. For certain purebred cats (Siamese, Persian, Maine Coon, etc.), we request a $150 - $300 adoption fee.
