Facts about Cosita

  • Breed: American Shorthair
  • Color: Tiger Striped
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: A0928699
  • Hair: Short
From Cosita's foster:
Cosita is a cat that appreciates her solitude and independence as much as wanting to be side-by-side with you whereever you go! She is not a lap cat (unless she has something more solid than your legs to lay on), but I feel that this is solely because she was never given the opportunity while she was young; therefore, she is apprehensive about sitting on your lap. While she isn't a kitty who will lie right next to you she does like to sit at the end of the couch and then come to you when she wants to be petted.
She is very affectionate and extremely vocal, especially when she is hungry. She expresses her affection sometimes through play. What I mean by this is when you are petting her, on a dime, she will quickly grab you and start nipping at your hand or arm. This is not aggression by any means, just play as a cat would. Whenever she begins nipping at me I usually stop moving and then she will stop as well. Again, this is not aggression.
One thing that I have noticed, and this is probably due to her younger years of experience, she is very sensitive to sound and usually reacts by slinking her posture. Since she has been with me, she has become familiar with the sounds around the building, so she reacts less, but at times she may still be startled. She never, however, was skittish. She is one tough cookie that will definitely defend her territory....It is worth mentioning that she has always calmly napped near me when I am practicing my instrument.
My recommendation is that she is adopted by someone that has a busy life, but wants to come home to a companion that will always greet them at the door and wants to sleep near them. I say this because she works well in the "time-share" principle. When she has her time alone, she is always willing to share space with whomever once they walk through that door. She also likes spending the whole day with you too, but I wanted to highlight a living style that works well for her (my opinion of course). I do want to note, that in my opinion (and in the right circumstance), she will do well with another animal. Cosita is not a cat keen on being picked up and held so potential adopters should be aware of this.
She was born around 4/7/07.

About Anjellicle Cats Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Anjellicle Cats Rescue is a no-kill, all-volunteer,
not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We are a member
of the Mayor's Alliance and a New Hope Partner with
the New York Animal Care & Control (ACC). For over ten years, this Hell's Kitchen shelter has been a lifeline
for abandoned, stray, and neglected cats and kittens.
In addition, we work closely with the ACC to pull out
those who are in danger of being euthanized due to
overcrowding. Each one is welcomed with kindness and medical attention, with the goal of placement into a permanent, loving home.

Well-known within the Broadway community, we have been featured on Fox 5 Morning Show, New York 1 Television and in Time Out magazine. We always enjoy meeting new volunteers and people who share our mission -- to compassionately rescue, care for and place New York City's homeless cats and kittens.

Come in today to see our "cat room" and maybe you'll
find a new friend -- one of our truly "Anjellicle

Come Meet Our Pets...

If you've found the cat of your dreams and wish to begin the adoption process, you only need to call or email Anjellicle Cats Rescue and arrange to meet a representative at Spoiled Brats, 340 W. 49th St.. Adoptions are done by appointment although there is usually someone on site every evening from 6 - 8pm.

Our Adoption Process...

Once you've filled out an application, someone will go through an adoption package with you with updated information on cat care. We require a donation of $125 for one cat or $225 for two. The kitten or cat will then be personally delivered to their new home.

All cats have been tested for the Feline Leukemia and FIV virus, vaccinated with FVRCP (3 in 1) and spayed or neutered. We believe it is much kinder to adopt kittens with another kitten or cat unless there is already a cat in their new household.
