Facts about Mack

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 7423
  • Hair: Short
Mack is a sweetheart, and a quintessential cat! He is a bit choosy about his people – some he loves right away, some he takes a bit to warm up to, and others he remains a bit standoffish toward. But once he’s honored you with his trust, he’ll be your warm-hearted, goofy snuggle-bug forever.

Mack loves to greet you every time you come home with requests for cuddles and scritches, and purrs up a storm in your arms when he’s in the mood for a good hug. If attention gets to be too much for him, he may hiss or nip to let you know you’ve offended him, but he’s a very gentle soul. He is often happy to be independent, but will also meow and walk around your feet/lap for attention – and he’s at his happiest curled up in your lap or sitting by your side, napping with his chin on your leg (and snoring the sweetest little snores).

Mack is a bold explorer of every nook and cranny in your home, and is a big fan of drinking lots of fresh water straight from the spigot of your tub! If he gets an itch, he will often loudly meow as he scratches it – it’s pretty hilarious to witness it in person. At night, he enjoys sleeping on the bed near his people, but likes to have his own space (not to sleep directly on top of you!).

Mack is the perfect cat for someone looking for a mellow, smart, interesting cat! Contact us at about Mack!

About KittyKind

About Our Rescue Group...

KittyKind is a New York City not-for-profit, no-kill, all-volunteer cat rescue and adoption group. All of us at KittyKind have opened our hearts and homes — and emptied our pockets — to save thousands of cats from neglect or abuse. Every cat we rescue is given food, shelter, medical care, a safe place to lay his or her head and most importantly of all, a reason to purr. We do not believe in rescuing a cat or kitten only to euthanize it if it has a broken leg or needs extended nursing care. We never give up if there is a chance of saving them. We take responsibility for each and every life we save and if a cat or kitten is unadoptable, they have a home with us for life.
We believe that animals are not property to be discarded, disposed of, or killed just for the crime of being homeless or unwanted. We believe that people should be friends, caretakers and protectors of animals. We believe that we must take responsibility for the life of every animal we rescue who through no fault of their own, is abandoned, sick, disabled, old or unable to care for themselves. We are dedicated to relieving their suffering, providing food, shelter, medical care and comfort until we can place them in a safe and loving home.

Our Adoption Process...

All cats and kittens are vaccinated and tested for FELV (feline leukemia) and FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), and if old enough, are neutered or spayed.
We will ask you some questions about your home and we will be glad to answer any questions you may have. Adopting a pet is a long-term commitment. We ask you to sign the KittyKind Adoption Agreement.
We will always take a cat back FOR ANY REASON. We will also work with you to place her in another good home if (after a period of adjustment) the adoption doesn't work out.
We do ask for a $125 adoption fee to help cover some of our food and veterinary expenses. For certain purebred cats (Siamese, Persian, Maine Coon, etc.), we request a $150 - $300 adoption fee.
