My name is Rafael, Rafi for short. I used to live in a shoe store in Harlem where I was the life of the party, greeting all the customers. They called me "el bonito" (the pretty one :)) Because I was so popular, the nice customers would give me all kinds of treats--ham and chicken were my favorite! It was delicious, but the doctor says it was bad for me and could be the reason I have something like inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) I got very sick--I couldn't eat anything, not even treats! I'm on the mend, but I can't go back to living in the shoe store, where customers would probably sneak me people food. I need a loving home where I can get food, and meds. I'm getting a steroid called prednilisone once a day for my IBD. I am a very easy patient, ahem ;) I would be so grateful to have your love and commitment to keeping me healthy. In return, I would be the life of the party in my new home--believe me, I'm a barrel of fun now that I feel healthy. Always out and about, ready to join in on the action and get some pets. Meow!

About PuppyKittyNyCity

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of volunteers who help community cats and rescue friendly stray cats and kittens. We are also working on initiatives to help reduce animal abandonment in Upper Manhattan!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have many cats with fosterers located throughout the five boroughs but also frequently go to adoption events. Just shoot us an email and we'll arrange a playdate with any kitty!

Our Adoption Process...

We typically send you a contract. After you complete and return it, we check your references and if everything is clear, schedule a time to do a home visit and then unite you with your future kitty! We often ask for a small nominal fee to cover the cost of care for our cats.
