“Hello! My name is Fred and I am a wild kitty that needs to be around other cats. I may not be as traditional as other cats, but I fancy myself as an independent cat who knows how to take care of myself. I am not a big fan of changes and would rather things stay the same.”

Fred came to us from a home where hoarding was a concern. Fred wasn’t given a chance to feel comfortable or even have a space to relax. Fred has spent the majority of his life in deplorable conditions and has been deprived of the opportunity to experience a normal, balanced life. As a result, Fred has developed some atypical behavioral traits. We are looking for an experienced cat owner with other social cats to give Fred a fresh start.



About Black Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Black Cat Rescue is a no-kill cat rescue organization in Boston, MA. Did you know that black cats are only half as likely to get adopted as cats of other colors? Our all-volunteer network of foster homes in the Greater Boston area is dedicated to saving the lives of homeless black cats and kittens by providing quality foster care while actively seeking loving, permanent adoptive homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Once you have completed our cat adoption profile, our Adoption Coordinator will be in touch with you by phone to set up a visit with one or more of our cats or kittens for adoption. You will meet each cat or kitten in their their individual foster homes. Because all of our cats that are available for adoption are in foster care, you may need to visit more than one foster home if you would like to meet multiple cats.
