Facts about Odessa

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
My name is Odessa and I was trapped from a feral cat colony in Harlem in April 2016. In the colony I tried to “do as the Romans did” and flexed my fierce-muscles as much as I could, so when I was trapped everybody pretty much bought my gangstress act- no problem! But as time indoors went on I started to relax and remember a life gone by, a life of love and safety and laps, head-scrunches and not to mention, elevator-butt.

Literally overnight I re-bloomed and my old life came out one day. The real me had arrived. No one knows my journey to the streets, which must remain a mystery- but now, I just can’t get or give enough love. Though I am timid I am super-sweet, and could spend the whole live-long day rolling over and purring on your lap.

If you want a loving, affectionate cat around, we would make a great pair!

I am about 1 year old, spayed, tested negative for fiv/fLv, vaccinated, and microchipped. And I am ready for the next chapter…

About Little Wanderers

About Our Rescue Group...

Little Wanderers is a small group of animal rescuers who are passionate about the welfare of NYC’s large feral cat population. Our primary activities are trapping, immunizing, neutering and releasing at risk cats, but we also facilitate adoption when appropriate. We work in the most difficult areas of the Bronx and Harlem, where other trappers do not like to go!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Please contact to arrange to meet any of our adoptable cats or to inquire about any cats not listed here, volunteering, or questions!

Our Adoption Process...

We have a thorough adoption process that begins with an adoption application. Upon acceptance of the application we will conduct a home visit to determine if the home is safe and appropriate for a cat. Then we work out transportation arrangements to get your new pet home! You can visit potential pets in foster care once we have a completed application for the cat.
