Facts about Pumpkin

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Bronx, New York – Pumpkin and Munch may be a little “long in the whiskers”, but they make up for their advanced age with so much love and devotion. This closely bonded brother and sister pair are 16 years young, and still going strong. They are such cuddle-cats. They even like being carried around from time to time.

Pumpkin is the male of the pair. He is a vibrant orange tabby cat with such an outgoing and friendly nature. He loves people, and tends to want to be wherever you are. He is very gentle and sweet. He purrs up a storm – such a comforting sound – it makes you feel that all is right with the world.

Munch is also very sweet. She can be very shy with strangers, and it will take her a while to warm up to her new person. If you give her the time and space she needs to become accustomed to you, you will be rewarded by such love and affection from this tiny little gray tabby cat.

Both cats have some minor health issues, however their owner is prepared to bear the costs of anything they may need for the rest of their days. All their new owner needs to provide is a very loving, safe and happy environment for them, and plenty of time to spend with these precious pussycats.

The owner loves these cats very much. She has a very strong calling to join a Monastic community in Wisconsin. Unfortunately pets are not allowed. She is dearly hoping to find the right person or couple who will embrace the opportunity to receive the gentle, loving attention of Pumpkin and Munch, for as much time as they have left. She is very willing to provide for anything they may need in the way of supplies or veterinary care. She would love to keep in touch with you as well, just to hear how the kitties are doing and make sure they have everything they need.

These two would make wonderful companions for elderly cat lovers on a limited income who would enjoy the pleasures of pet ownership. These two really are very special.

About New York City Find My Pet A Home

About Our Rescue Group...

In many locations throughout the USA and Canada, shelters are rescues are filled to capacity, leaving pet owners who can no longer care for their pet with nowhere to turn. Many pets are needlessly being euthanized.

Being placed in a shelter is a very stressful experience for all pets - and their owners. We offer a very good alternative, allowing pets to stay in the loving care of their owners while a new home is located for them.

We have helped many pet owners in need to place their pet in a home where they have great peace of mind in knowing that their pet is being cherished, well cared for and kept safe, happy and healthy.

Come Meet Our Pets...

In most instances, our pets stay with their owners until a new home can be located. There are some situations which require a more urgent placement, and in these instances, we look for loving foster homes to care for these pets until a permanent home can be located.

Our Adoption Process...

When a pet is placed with our organization, our staff create a very honest and compelling adoption story about the pet, using the information provided to us.

We then spread the word about this pet's need for a new home through a wide variety of online services, and through local outreach.

Interested parties are directed to fill out a formal request to meet a pet, providing in-depth information about themselves.

Before a potential adopter is introduced to a pet, we do careful reference screening and a criminal records check.

Should the pet's owner and the adoptive party agree to an adoption, a formal agreement is entered into, requiring the new owner to agree to keep in touch, ensure the pet's physical and emotional well-being, and provide a safe, happy and healthy home.

They are required to agree that they will not surrender the pet to a shelter or give away the pet - but rather they are to contact our organization so that we can find another suitable home, in the event that they are unable to fulfill their commitment.

The owners deliver the pet to the new owners, so that they can do a home inspection prior to leaving the pet in the new owner's care.

Our organization provides follow-up services, contacting the new owners after the first week, and then every 45 days for the first nine months post-adoption. This helps ensure the pet is being well cared for, and that the new owners have any support they need in adjusting to life with their new companion,
