|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||White (Mostly)||Age:||Adult|
We rescued Howie from a kill list in a municipal shelter. He was in pretty rough shape - skinny, with a cold and not eating. We nursed him to health - a bunch of foster people, staff of the vet hospital he was recovering at for a few days, his awesome vet. Howie has been the best patient, perfect sweetness, always ready for hugs and little funny noises. He went through very hard times but he is clinging to happiness giving us inspiration to continue our work with needy kits. Howie has recovered, has a clean bill of health (even though he has an aural hematoma on his ear which is pretty common) and a wobbly walk (memory of an old fracture). He eats, sleeps, purrs, loves, slaps kittens if they need guidance how to behave properly - he is our star rescue! he walks on a leash and loves kids. He loves to be a center of attention. He is a super cat!
Howie is 3 years old, tested negative for FIV and FELV, neutered, up to date on vaccinations and ready to cuddle up with his new forever owner.
Howie loves dogs but acts kind of alpha when cats are concerned.
Rescue Group Info...
North Brooklyn Cats specializes in taking in orphaned "bottle-babies" from other rescues and from the streets of our neighborhood. These tiny kittens require round-the-clock care and often don't do well in a shelter environment. We have many years experience volunteering and working for shelters and rescue organizations in New York City.
We have special adoption events in the neighborhood and also work with other rescue groups, sharing resources whenever possible.
Cat and kitten adoptions require a $100.00 donation, which helps us cover the costs of delivering them already spayed/neutered, tested for feline AIDS and leukemia, current on vaccines, dewormed and treated for any health problems we were aware of. We generally require that kittens under five months of age be adopted in two's unless you already have another pet. Adoptions require an application that asks for two references and a contract. We deliver your new cat to your home, generally within a few days of getting your application. We are happy to help should you need advice or assistance with your new companion before or after the adoption.
The five boroughs of New York City. In special circumstances, we will consider good homes in surrounding areas.
