Facts about Gertie

  • Breed: American Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Gertie is an older lady cat. She can be shy with strangers but she just wants to break the ice so she can get comfy with you. She loves to sleep in the bed with humans, and is a real lover once you win her over. She had a rough life, living for years in terror with an unfriendly dog, then tossed out on the street. She has one crinkly ear from an untreated ear hematoma but needs no special care. She is a wonderful mellow girl.

About Bushwick Street Cats

About Our Rescue Group...

We're primarily a TNR volunteer group, we trap, neuter and return feral cats in the community. We often find tame cats or young kittens during these projects and these cats make up the bulk of our adoptable cats here.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We regularly participate in adoption events with North Brooklyn Cats, a rescue group based in Williamsburg/Greenpoint. Their adoption events are every Sunday from 2-6 PM at Muddy Paws Pet Supplies, 447 Graham Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211. We also have potential adopters visit our fosters at our home by appointment.

Our Adoption Process...

Potential adopters meet with us and the cat(s) either at our home or an adoption event. Potential adopters complete a simple adoption application, which we review and approve. If all parties are in agreement on the adoption we set a time to deliver the cat(s) to the adopter's home. Upon receiving the cat(s), adopters are asked to sign an adoption contract and for a tax-deductible donation fee of $100 per cat. Adopters are emailed all vet records and related forms.
