Facts about Patrick

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

Patrick is already neutered, up to date with shots, tested negative for FELV/FIV, good with kids and cats, not sure about dogs, and litter box trained.

Patrick had a home up until almost two years ago. He had a good life living with his rescuer and some other rescued animals. Patrick came to us with Peter and Paul (see their bios). All three had to live outdoors when their Dad died and the home was sold. They lived one and one-half winters outside. They had food and some shelter but this past winter was extremely bitter cold here in NJ. We decided to take them in and see if they could adjust to indoor life again. Warmth and shelter made the three boys happy cats! Patrick is approx. 5 years old and is a bit shy at first. After some time with us he has decided that being petted feels GREAT! Patrick LOVES to play. If you pick up a toy that dangles he runs over to play with you. He is a gentle cat and though he's not letting us pick him up yet, he has made wonderful progress. He loves to bump heads with Peter and Paul but we think he will be fine with another laid-back cat. Currently all three boys, and Natalie (also up for adoption) are living in a shed that's only 8 x 10 feet. We fear that access to this shed will be difficult if we get heavy snow so we pray that they will find their forever homes before winter. We'd love for the three boys to 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.
