Facts about Smokey

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Long
Not sure where to begin...Smokey was not expected to make it. When our rescue found him he was literally covered in fleas and ticks, he was starving...his bones were showing, he was anemic and his body temp was only 94 degree. He was obviously someone's pet, before being discarded. Being only 10 months old he did not know how to live on his own, without food, outside in the freezing weather. Despite the odds, we knew we were going to fight to keep him alive, but Smokey had other plans. Despite the warm bed, despite the love and attention, he would not eat...he had literally given up, his eyes were dull, he was just so tired
But he found OnebyOne and we don't give up...took 5 days of force feeding, 5 days of heating pads and hot water bottles, 5 days of sleepless nights....and finally, his first lick, he did it!!!! Would take several more weeks to get all his issues cured, but we did it!
Our beautiful boy is now completely healthy and has a wonderful appetite.
He is an extremely affectionate, very grateful, happy silly boy who loves to sit in your lap while you pet him and tell him you love him.

About OnebyOne

About Our Rescue Group...

OnebyOne is a registered 501c3 not-for profit cat rescue made up of a group of animal loving, dedicated, tireless volunteers in Central/South NJ. We are NOT a shelter. Our focus is to rescue stray, abandoned, homeless cats and kittens. Once each cat is in our care they are vaccinated, neutered/spayed and given any and all medical attention they need. Each cat is fostered in a wonderful home, nurtured and loved, they run around and play and sleep in their foster room until we are able to find each one their forever home.

Another focus of our group is TNR* (trap, neuter, return). In an effort to help reduce over crowding in state shelters and minimize the outdoor feral cat population in NJ, OnebyOne is not only providing hands on help, but also providing education and rescourecs to help people who want to get involved in their own backyard or their community.

All of the animals listed for adoption on our page have at one time been either strays or were rescued from the state shelters, some of them within hours of impending euthanasia.

The ultimate goal of OnebyOne goal to both prevent the birth of more homeless animals and to find families for all those who want them. Because of foster space limitations, we do place mostly cats, but you will find the occasional dog listing here, as we courtesy post for fellow trusted Rescuers in the NJ area.

Please note: WE DO NOT BREED KITTENS!!! If there are kittens listed for adoption at any time on this page, they were rescued.

OnebyOne is lucky enough to maintain a foster network throughout NJ . We work closely with our fosters, other rescues, and various shelters to place these rescued cats and dogs in loving forever homes.

OnebyOne does not receive any funding. The only way we can continue to rescue and help these precious animals is your donations. Food, litter, petsmart/costo gift cards, laundry detergent, paper towels are always needed.

Our Adoption Process...

Our process is simple if you are a loving home. We require an application with a vet reference, note that we will be calling your current vet to confirm all information. A volunteer from OnebyOne will also do a house check before allowing the cat to be adopted.
Some individuals may deem this process excessive, however, pls note that our Founder has been rescuing animals for over 25 years and has seen too much too allow any cat/kitten we rescue to go to a home that we are unsure of. Our cats are our priority and we take that responsibility seriously.
