I am considered a Sun Cat because I am a senior boy. My name is Gustav and I was rescued off the street in Valley Stream. I kept going up to people and trying to get someone to notice me and finally a
nice family put out some food for me, I was hoping my luck a was starting to change. The nice people
kept feeding me so I stuck around, still trying to get in the house with no luck :0(
The nice people made some calls and can you believe someone said they would help and did? Wow
my life was about to change! I was picked up by a nice lady tested negative for FIV/Leuk and I was finally inside, there was heat and a few other cats to look at from my crate. I was brought in for neuter and initially rejected, can you believe they said I was a senior and weren't sure I was up to the procedure? So the nice lady took me home :0) and fed me to fatten me up for a few months and then I was up to the procedure, enough about that, yikes. So I am now a total goofball, not my words and ready for a forever home =^..^=

About CONNER'S CAUSE for Supposedly Unadoptable Cats

About Our Rescue Group...

We believe that every cat deserves to be cared for whether they play with you, curl up in your lap, or prefer to hang out by themselves or with other feline companions.

Conner's Cause is sponsored by Give Me Shelter Project, Inc. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue, education and advocacy organization. You can learn more about Give Me Shelter Project by visiting our website:

Conner’s Cause is an initiative that Give Me Shelter Project has launched to try to find loving forever homes for the Supposedly Unadoptable Cats that currently reside in animal shelters and with rescue groups.

Our organization has generally defined "supposedly unadoptable cats" as those who range in temperament from semi-friendly to semi-feral. For the purposes of this initiative, we have broadened our definition of “supposedly unadoptable cats” to include other categories of cats that are difficult to place in adoptive homes. These include: seniors, handicapped, FIV+, FeLV+, cats with treatable and untreatable illnesses.

We invite you to consider adopting a "Supposedly Unadoptable Cat". Please join “Conner’s Cause” and BRING HOME THE MAGIC!

Our Adoption Process...

You will be asked to fill out an adoption application and generally a telephone interview will follow. Next, a home visit will be performed to help "ready" your home for the new cat(s).

Supposedly Unadoptable Cats are special and we require adopters for this particular group of cats to be experienced cat people.

While we hope that the commitment you make will be life long, all cats adopted out through this initiative will be returnable for the life of the cat.
