Shy Guy needs patient, loving family

Joe is a male grey tabby domestic short hair, born May 24th, 2009.
Joe is the son of July, who came to us as a pregnant female that was dropped off at a managed feral cat colony. July has been adopted, along with Joe's litter mates Buffy, Leia and Otto. Joe is here waiting to find his forever home, along with his brother Billy Whiteshoes (grey tabby with white tipped paws). They do not need to be adopted together.

Joe started out being a shy kitten, but he is improving. He is still reserved even around people he knows, but he has made improvements learning to be comfortable around people. With continued loving care and handling, we expect he will only keep improving. Because of his shyness, Joe tends to fade into the background behind some of our more outgoing and friendly cats, and thus he has not been adopted yet.
Joe gets along well with other cats, and he enjoys their company. We think Joe would do best in a home where there was another cat who was comfortable and friendly with people, both to be a companion to Joe and to be a role model to ease his anxiety about interacting with people. His feline companion could be either a younger playmate or an older parental figure to model positive interactions with his human family.

Joe has settled into a routine, spending most of his days napping in the large wicker basket with his buddy Diamondback, staring out the front window. His life is still missing something though - he needs a loving family. If this could be you, please call us now to come meet Joe.
Call Kitty Corner at 315-457-4420 or fill out our adoption application at to meet our adoptable cats and adopt a new member of your family.

Joe tests negative for Feline Leukemia and Feline AIDS, has been spayed/neutered, microchipped, and all shots are up to date.

Kitty Corner has a lifetime return policy. If your adopted cat needs to be rehomed at any time, just bring them back to us. We want to be sure that none of our cats is ever homeless again.

Thank you for looking at our cats!

About KittyCorner of CNY, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

At Kitty Corner, we are NOT a shelter. We are "cat rescuers" -- volunteers who live with the rescued cats in our own homes. We provide shelter, veterinary care and a chance for a new life in a loving home for cats who have been abandoned or who never had a home at all due to the overwhelming number of homeless pets.
We are all volunteers and 100% of every donation is used for the care of the cats.

When a cat first comes to us, they are briefly caged and isolated until they see our vet. They are checked for parasites and diseases. We provide vaccinations and any other veterinary care they may need. We also spay or neuter any cat who is old enough.
The healthy, altered cats are then evaluated for personality and placed in one of our four "cat rooms". When necessary, we work to overcome behavior or emotional problems so that the cat will be a happy, adoptable pet.

We try to match each cat with the person or family for whom it is best suited. The happiness of the cat and its new "people" is our first priority. In the last few years, we have taken in hundreds of cats and placed almost all of them in caring, responsible homes.

Kitty Corner is firmly committed to the idea that once a cat comes to us, it will never be homeless again. We have a life-long "cat back" guarantee. If an adoption doesn't work out at any time, for any reason, we ask that you to return the cat to us.

Our Adoption Process...

Whether you have already found a cat or kitten you like in our adoptive listings, or if you just want to come and meet all our cats available for adoption, the first step is the application.

The first step to adopting is the adoption application. Our adoption application can be done over the phone 315-457-4420 or online at our website under the "adopt" link; or here's a direct link

We request an adoption donation for our cats and kittens, which helps us to offset a little of our veterinary costs.
All cats, even the kittens, must be sterilized before going to new homes. We believe strongly in pediatric spay-neuter, a practice that can be used with kittens as young as eight weeks.
