Built like a linebacker with a giant head, Marvin looks like one tough tomcat. But should a stranger appear he hides under the nearest furniture. If you're meeting him for the first time, don't worry! All you have to do is start petting his big head and he'll be out and on your lap in seconds. This mighty, meaty, fraidy tom is just a big, giant mush!

Shy, tough-looking Marvin is a closet lap-cat. He absolutely craves affection. He likes his food but sometimes he likes pets even better. He was thrown outdoors with a litter of siblings when whoever owned them was evicted from an apartment. He survived taking scraps under cars for at least a couple of years. People were probably mean to him, judging from his timidity, but his need for human companionship never left him and he will make some lucky person a very loving companion.

Marvin is two years old and would be best as a single cat.

Marvin is a healthy, FIV+ cat who requires no special care. Read why FIV+ cats make great pets. http://www.vetstreet.com/our-pet-experts/why-this-vet-thinks-fiv-positive-cats-make-great-adoptees

Marvin is neutered, vaccinated, and FeLV negative.

About Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Our rescue group was formed in December 2007, but all our Board Members have had extensive experience rescuing and working with abandoned animals. We often work with other rescue organizations to find appropriate and safe foster and adoptive homes for our pet clients. We regularly go to areas with abandoned animals and collect them. The animals are taken to a licensed veterinarian examined, treated and spayed or neutered. Every effort is made to work with the animal and our foster and adoptive families to find a suitable forever home.

For those animals who are truly wild and feral, we release the animal in a safe and secure location after it has recovered from its medical treatment. We also work with certified wildlife rehabilitators to rescue injured and orphaned wildlife. Our organization is focused on improving the welfare of the abandoned animals in need of help in Brooklyn. In furthering that goal, our resources are focused on the animals.

Aside from a few minimal overhead costs such as our website and phone services, our entire budget is spent on animal care such as medical and food costs.
