Important Note

Paul is best friends with Peter. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!

Paul (on the left) is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, tested negative for FELV/FIV, litter box trained and approx. 5 years old. He should be good with kids because he is affectionate and playful and he is fine with cats, especially Peter who is his bonded friend. We're not sure if Paul is ok with dogs - he hasn't been exposed to any dogs since he's been with us.

Paul is a playful cat and is happy to play all by himself and throw his toys up in the air, stalk them and bat them around the room. He will make you laugh! He likes to be petted and brushed, and is what we would consider a medium-sized cat.

Paul and his best friend Peter must be adopted together. They are never too far away from one another and are always bumping heads and running up to one another for reassurance. They are also good friends with Patrick, but Patrick is more independent even though he will snuggle and sleep with Paul and Peter, both together or individually.

Paul, Peter, and Patrick were once indoor cats but became homeless after their Dad passed away and the house was sold. All three boys lived outdoors for a year and a half. Even though they had shelter and were fed we were concerned about their safety and health because NJ's winter of 2016 was very bitter, especially in February.

The time came when we were able to foster these three buddies, but they really deserve a better environment and a home and a family. They currently live in an 8 x 10 foot heated shed with lights and have all they need, but they want more human contact. They get lonely even though they have one another for companionship.

It would be nice if the three boys could find a home together. We realize that finding that "Special" someone who would like to keep these three friends together is a dream of ours, but we keep hoping and praying.

If you would like to learn more about Paul, Peter, and Patrick, please call Communities Altering The Strays (CATS) at 908-453-0082. You can fill out the adoption application on our web site. You can also email us at Updated 2/13/17.

About Communities Altering The Strays (CATS)

About Our Rescue Group...

We are all volunteers in this group. Donations allow us to continue our work so that thousands of kittens are not born every year to feral and stray cats.

We organized this group because we do not agree that killing healthy animals is the answer to the pet population problem. We also believe that feral cats have the right to live. We provide education and assistance to people that want to trap cats and get them sterilized and vaccinated.

We make ourselves available to the independent feral cat caretaker, and independent cat owner, and help publicize their adoptable kittens and cats on our web site and at fund raising events.

During the last several years, our organization has prevented hundreds of thousands of kitten births, and helped find hundreds of homes for cats and kittens.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adopters can visit cats in their foster homes, and all arrangements are made with the foster family as to date and time of visit.

Private, in-home visits, can also be arranged in the adopter's home, especially if several cats are appealing to the adopter.

Our Adoption Process...

We require a pre-adoption application which supplies information to us about the type of cat that would be suitable for the adopter and the home environment.

We visit the home with our cats (cats that interest the adopter, and cats that we believe may be a good match for the adopter). We have a leisurely visit with the potential adopter and we all observe the reactions of the cats with the people, and reactions of the people to the cats.

Our fees are below $100 and all cats are sterilized, have received age-appropriate vaccinations, were tested for FELV/FIV, wormed, treated for fleas, and most are microchipped.

We do not allow declawing of our cats,and all cats are adopted as indoor-only pets. Under certain circumstances we will adopt out cats that are suitable as barn cats.
