Facts about Patrick

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short

Patrick is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, tested negative for FELV/FIV, and is great with his litter box. He is good with cats and may be fine with older kids (because he likes to play), but we are not sure if he is comfortable around dogs.

Patrick is approx. 6 years old and is a sturdy, good-sized cat. You can definitely tell that he is a male! Patrick is a bit shy at first and can be a bit reclusive at times but once you pick up a toy to play he's ready to go! He's especially fond of toys that dangle or interactive toys. Patrick is also quite the hunter, having captured two mice in his living quarters!

Patrick isn't fond of being held, but he has accepted being petted and brushed once in awhile. He is a gentle cat and may take a bit of time to come out of his shell in a new home, but he has made wonderful progress here with us. He loves to butt heads with Peter and Paul and sleeps with them, but we think he will be fine with another laid-back cat, or as the only cat in a home.

Patrick, and his pals Peter and Paul, (see their bios) had a home up until almost two years ago. They had a good life living with their rescuer and some other rescued animals. But when their Dad died their home was sold. They had to live one and one half years outdoors. They had food and some shelter but the winter of 2016 was extremely bitter cold in our part of NJ. In February 2016, we were able to foster them and see if they could adjust to indoor life once again. Warmth and shelter made the three boys happy cats!

Currently all three boys are living in a shed that's only 8 x 10 feet. They are safe and have heat and lights but they get lonely for human companionship. They deserve so much more.

We'd love for the three boys to be adopted together! Anyone out there up for the challenge? That would be a dream come true! Peter and Paul however are bonded and must be adopted together.

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.
