Own Me, Own my Heart!

Carrick is a male gray domestic short hair, with white mittens.
Carrick and his litter mates were born under a shed in the first week of March 2006. They were discovered only when the property was sold. Fortunately, the new owner wanted to help them. She contacted one of our volunteers, who spent weeks patiently trapping the scared little kittens. The younger kittens are when they are socialized, the easier it is for them to relate to humans. Carrick was the second-to-last kitten to be caught, so he was quite shy for the longest time. For years, Carrick hid whenever adopters came, and we had almost given up hope of him ever finding a home.

Recently, an amazing personality change came over Carrick ... this formerly shy kitten grew up into a friendly adult cat. One day sitting in the living room there was a head bump on my elbow. Without thinking, I reached down the pet the kitty. Looking down, I was amazed to see ... Carrick?!
This formerly shy kitten has grown into a friendly cat, seemingly overnight. Carrick likes people, and is a friendly cat. When he wants your attention, he'll give you a little head bump to let you know he would like to be petted. He likes to snuggle, and watch TV next to you.
Carrick gets along OK with other cats. He enjoys but does not require their presence. He could do well either as an only cat, or in a family with other feline members.

If you think Carrick could fit into your family, please give us a call to come and meet him.
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.

Carrick 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.
