Handsome Harlequin's Info...

I am already neutered, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with dogs.

Handsome Harlequin's Story...
Harlequin is a gorgeous fluffy kitty, the most beautiful cat I have ever rescued. He loves to play, likes to nuzzle you, likes to be high up and put his paws on your shoulders to cuddle and wants to be held, but watch his tail, when it flicks he is done and you had better put him down and walk away or he will get bitey. Harley is really best in a multi-cat home where he has other assertive cats to play with. He is happiest when you are in the room with him and ecstatic when you play with him. However, Harley needs an experienced adopter who already has a cat who loves to be cuddled. Though he will ask for petting he can then change his mind on a dime and you then it is best to back off. He loves playing with other kitties, he is both independent, loving and a challenge. Here is a video of him being pet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJNYS9g0GX4&feature=youtu.be

On my way to work one morning I saw a long black "tail" tucked in the tiny crack between 2 buildings where they didn't quite meet up perfectly. I took a second look and realized it was a cat! I was in a rush for work and couldn't stop. When I returned I checked and he was still there, wedged between the buildings, only his tail visible! I grabbed a carrier and with a little food encouragement got him into the carrier. Harley is neutered, tested negative for fiv/leuk, up-to-date on his shots, is litter-trained and loves to play. Still young, I find playing with him with the feline flyer is a great way of using up his energy ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86O0VeHesyE).

He is a wonderful boy for the right adopter. If you would like to meet this beautiful, amazing boy, please contact Claire, EMAIL catskittensnyc@gmail.com or call Eves/Weekends at 718-455-5711.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Handsome Harlequin, a Brooklyn Maine Coon cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maine Coon for sale in Brooklyn, or seeking a Maine Coon cat from a breeder in Brooklyn.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Brooklyn already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Brooklyn breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Maine Coon breeders who help with Maine Coon rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Brooklyn paves the way for another one to be saved.
