Meow! My name is Cate
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with cats.
Please contact Linda (firstname.lastname@example.org), (315) 457-4420 for more information about this pet.
I've Been Through So Much
Cate is a tortoiseshell domestic short hair. We estimate she was probably born in Spring 2007.
We don't know where Cate started her life, but it appears she spent months wandering in a dangerous city neighborhood. When she was rescued, she was found as a stray near Catherine Street with five newborn kittens. Cate came to Kitty Corner when her kittens were two days old, but life on the streets had taken it's toll on her though. Shortly after she arrived, Cate became sick with a respiratory virus, and soon after her kittens also became ill.
Cate is recovered and is now in good health. Two kittens also survived - Sunkist and Hyacinth. Hyacinth has been adopted, and Sunkist is still waiting to find her forever home.
Cate is good with people, and is friendly and affectionate right from the start. She enjoys being held and cuddled. Cate likes meeting new people, and likes being petted. It's hard to believe after all she's been through that she could still be so trusting, but she is - she loves people.
Cate gets along OK with other cats. She enjoys but does not require their company. She could do well as an only cat, or as a companion cat to another feline sibling in the family.
Cate has had a rough start in life for both herself and her kittens. Now that her 'mom time' is nearing an end, she is ready to find a family to call her own and share her life with her forever family.
Cate would be a wonderful companion for a single person, or a purrfect family pet. Please show this trusting girl that her hopes were not in vain! If you can give Cate the kind of home she deserves, please call us and come meet this beautiful girl.
Call Kitty Corner at 315-457-4420 or fill out our adoption application at www.kittycorner.org to meet our adoptable cats and adopt a new member of your family.
Cate tests negative for Feline Leukemia and Feline AIDS, has been spayed/neutered, microchipped, and all shots are up to date.
Kitty Corner has a lifetime return policy. If you adopt a cat or kitten from us and you can't keep it for any reason, we ask that you return it to us. We want to be sure that none of our cats is ever homeless again.
Thank you for looking at our cats!
Rescue Group Info...
At Kitty Corner, we are NOT a shelter. We are "cat rescuers" -- volunteers who live with the rescued cats in our own homes. We provide shelter, veterinary care and a chance for a new life in a loving home for cats who have been abandoned or who never had a home at all due to the overwhelming number of homeless pets.
We are all volunteers and 100% of every donation is used for the care of the cats.
When a cat first comes to us, they are briefly caged and isolated until they see our vet. They are checked for parasites and diseases. We provide vaccinations and any other veterinary care they may need. We also spay or neuter any cat who is old enough.
The healthy, altered cats are then evaluated for personality and placed in one of our four "cat rooms". When necessary, we work to overcome behavior or emotional problems so that the cat will be a happy, adoptable pet.
We try to match each cat with the person or family for whom it is best suited. The happiness of the cat and its new "people" is our first priority. In the last few years, we have taken in hundreds of cats and placed almost all of them in caring, responsible homes.
Kitty Corner is firmly committed to the idea that once a cat comes to us, it will never be homeless again. We have a life-long "cat back" guarantee. If an adoption doesn't work out at any time, for any reason, we ask that you to return the cat to us.
If you see a particular pet listed that you might like to meet, please call or e-mail and we'll tell you all about him or her.
If you are just looking to meet our cats available and see if one "clicks" with you, that's fine too!
Once you've completed the adoption application, either online or by phone, we'll invite you to meet our kitties. All of our adoptable cats are housed in the same location, so you will be able to meet everyone in one visit. We are located in Liverpool, NY.
Whether you have already found a cat or kitten you like in our adoptive listings, or if you just want to come and meet all our cats available for adoption, the first step is the application.
The first step to adopting is the adoption application. Our adoption application can be done over the phone 315-457-4420 or online at our website http://www.kittycorner.org under the "adopt" link; or here's a direct link http://www.kittycorner.org/pages/adoptapp.php
We request an adoption donation for our cats and kittens, which helps us to offset a little of our veterinary costs.
All cats, even the kittens, must be sterilized before going to new homes. We believe strongly in pediatric spay-neuter, a practice that can be used with kittens as young as eight weeks.
Kitty Corner of CNY rescues and adopts our cats to all of Onondaga County, New York State. We will also consider out of the area (including out of state) adoptions on a case-by-case basis.
