Can you show me what being part of a family is like?
Thunder is a male grey and white domestic short hair, born June 9th 2009.
Serenity was abandoned when her uncaring former family got angry that she had become pregnant. (which is almost a certainty for unaltered female cats left outside). Serenity got by the best she could, and gave birth to her kittens in a woodpile. She was found by a kindly neighbor, and brought to Kitty Corner. Although she was not even a year old herself and far too young to be a mother, Serenity was a wonderful mother to her kittens.
Serenity has been adopted, along with her kitten Tornado. Her son Thunder remains here awaiting a family to join, along with his litter mates Lightning (black and white female), Twilight (solid black female), and Stormy (solid grey female). They do not need to be adopted together.
Thunder is initially shy, and he is reserved with strangers until he gets to know you a bit better. Thunder is friendly with people he's familiar with, sitting by your side and purring as you cuddle another kitty in your lap, or laying beside you as you read. However, it will take time and patience to become friends with Thunder and earn his trust. Because he is initially shy, Thunder tends to fade into the background behind some of our more friendly cats, and thus has not been adopted yet.
Thunder gets along well with other cats. He is great pals with his litter mates, and with some of our other cats here.
Can you be the patient person that Thunder has been looking for, one who will not expect instant love and take some time to let a friendship grow? If you are, please call to come by to meet Thunder!
Call Kitty Corner at 315-457-4420 or fill out our adoption application at www.kittycorner.org to meet our adoptable cats and adopt a new member of your family.
Thunder 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 you adopt a cat or kitten from us, and you can't keep it for any reason, we ask that you return it to us. We want to be sure that none of our cats is ever homeless again.
Thank you for looking at our cats!
Rescue Group Info...
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.
If you see a particular pet listed that you might like to meet, please call or e-mail and we'll tell you all about him or her.
If you are just looking to meet our cats available and see if one "clicks" with you, that's fine too!
Once you've completed the adoption application, either online or by phone, we'll invite you to meet our kitties. All of our adoptable cats are housed in the same location, so you will be able to meet everyone in one visit. We are located in Liverpool, NY.
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 http://www.kittycorner.org under the "adopt" link; or here's a direct link http://www.kittycorner.org/pages/adoptapp.php
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.
Kitty Corner of CNY rescues and adopts our cats to all of Onondaga County, New York State. We will also consider out of the area (including out of state) adoptions on a case-by-case basis.
