Facts about Tiger Lily

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tan Or Fawn Tabby
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Here's the story of Tiger Lily: Theresa [the founder of our shelter] saw a cat galloping down Linden Blvd. She ran across streets without looking, she just was bolting.
Theresa, with just pure luck was able to follow her. Once the kitty smelled the food she stopped running and came closer. Theresa sat under a truck for about half an hour to coxed cat to take bits of food, then she went back to her van and got a carrier. By only a miracle and lots of prays she was able to get kitty to follow the food inside the carrier and shut her in. She is around 6 months, terrified; we have no idea what happened to her but she is petrified with fear. She is obviously not feral just scared. She also is quite thin but looks healthy otherwise. She does have some scarring over one eye and a bit thin but otherwise seems healthy. Catching her, without a trap, on a busy street, was a tiny miracle.
We called a kitty Tiger Lily, and now she was spayed and tested. She is looking for a good foster or forver home to help her overcome her fears and start trusting people again. She is not a lap cat and will probably need a lot of work to gain her trust, but if you do this, you will have the most loyal furfriend ever!

About For Animals

About Our Shelter...

Who we are
For Animals, Inc. is a local TNR (trap, neuter, return) group. We are a New York State not for profit Corporation with (501) C-3 status, staffed and operated by people with many years of experience rescuing and taking care of abandoned animals.

What we do
The focus of our operation is a TNR program. For Animals, Inc. rescues stray and abandoned dogs and cats and then transports them to a veterinarian office where they are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed and checked for general health. Afterward, they are fostered in a cage free environment until they are adopted into safe, loving homes.

Why we do it
With tens of thousands of feral cats on the streets of NYC, our focus is on TNR as an effort to humanely reduce the overall population, one colony at a time. By neutering & spaying the feral cats in the colony and adopting out friendly strays and kittens, the colony stabilizes and begins to shrink over time.
