  • ID#: P1914

Winky and Sookie are two beautiful sisters. Winky is a torbie and Sookie is greyish. They were born around 9/16/13. They were adopted out as kittens but unfortunately their owner developed severe allergies. Sookie likes to be picked up, sits on your lap and will stay like a little warm heater as you curl up and watch the t.v. She loves to play with anything, string, ping pong balls, light reflecting on a surface. She has gotten very good at batting a ping pong ball back to you and both girls love the sound of it when they hear them bouncing. Drop one on the floor and they will both come running to play. Sookie is outgoing and adventurous and likely to explore new places. If she wants your attention she will come and meow softly, also sometimes grabbing your arm or hand with her paw to pull your hand to her and have you pet her. Sookie will come up to strangers in the home and get them to pet her. While Winky is not fond of being picked up, she will come to you. She absolutely loves to have her belly rubbed and will purr very loudly, giving you an unhappy stare if you stop when she’s not ready for you to. She will come next to you, drop down and roll over ready for her belly to be rubbed. She is a little more shy than Sookie when it comes to strangers she does not recognize but after a brief time she gets used to new people and will be affectionate with them too. Winky would benefit from a little hidey hole that she can go to to feel safe when needed. Both of the girls like to sleep in the bed. They come when called and run in, jump up and either curl up between their former owners to have their tummy rubbed or curl up at the end of the bed at their feet for the night. They often spend the day curled up together sleeping and cleaning each other. The girls are bonded and should be adopted together.

About Anjellicle Cats Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Anjellicle Cats Rescue is a no-kill, all-volunteer,
not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We are a member
of the Mayor's Alliance and a New Hope Partner with
the New York Animal Care & Control (ACC). For over ten years, this Hell's Kitchen shelter has been a lifeline
for abandoned, stray, and neglected cats and kittens.
In addition, we work closely with the ACC to pull out
those who are in danger of being euthanized due to
overcrowding. Each one is welcomed with kindness and medical attention, with the goal of placement into a permanent, loving home.

Well-known within the Broadway community, we have been featured on Fox 5 Morning Show, New York 1 Television and in Time Out magazine. We always enjoy meeting new volunteers and people who share our mission -- to compassionately rescue, care for and place New York City's homeless cats and kittens.

Come in today to see our "cat room" and maybe you'll
find a new friend -- one of our truly "Anjellicle

Come Meet Our Pets...

If you've found the cat of your dreams and wish to begin the adoption process, you only need to call or email Anjellicle Cats Rescue and arrange to meet a representative at Spoiled Brats, 340 W. 49th St.. Adoptions are done by appointment although there is usually someone on site every evening from 6 - 8pm.

Our Adoption Process...

Once you've filled out an application, someone will go through an adoption package with you with updated information on cat care. We require a donation of $125 for one cat or $225 for two. The kitten or cat will then be personally delivered to their new home.

All cats have been tested for the Feline Leukemia and FIV virus, vaccinated with FVRCP (3 in 1) and spayed or neutered. We believe it is much kinder to adopt kittens with another kitten or cat unless there is already a cat in their new household.
