Portia has such a survivor's story! She landed at Animal Care & Control in September, and because she is eartipped (the mark of a street cat that has been spayed or neutered), all attempts were made to locate her caretaker and return her to her colony. It was then discovered that Portia's caretaker had passed away, and so a plan was hatched to introduce her into a new colony. No one knew at the time what an amazing disposition Portia had, nor how easily she would take to being an indoor cat, which perhaps she once was.
One week into her recolonization program, Portia developed an eye infection and was promptly taken to the vet. Because she required medicine on a daily basis, a foster home was found, and that's when Portia truly began to shine. Upon release into the domestic environment, Portia circled the room to thank and receive pets from her saviors. Despite her infection, Portia's spirits were immediately lifted, and they haven't dropped since.
Portia doesn't sit still for long. She loves human affection and walks back and forth constantly, rubbing her face into any available hands before rolling over for belly rubs. She very much dislikes being picked up, undoubtedly due to the weeks of medications and eye drops that she had to endure. This may change in time. However, being a prize snuggler, she does crawl into a lap for love and a good nap.
Portia enjoys company during meals and even purrs while eating. She's quite a talker, too, especially if treats are involved, and she's crazy for catnip-laced toys
This beautiful girl may as well be a Russian Blue, even though street cats don't come with papers pinned to their chests. Portia is about 2 years old. She's been spayed and is up to date on vaccines. She is also microchipped and neg/neg for FeLV/FIV.

Rescue Group Info...
The American Street Cat, Inc's primary focus is on TNR (trap-neuter-return), but the kittens and friendlies found during the rescue effort cannot be ignored. They are brought indoors, well-cared for in a non-shelter environment, and promoted for adoption upon a clean bill of health.
We are a small, new (2011), volunteer-based, non-profit organization, with no paid officers or staff. Any donations (of time and/or money) will be greatly appreciated.
We are committed to minimizing the pet overpopulation problem, thereby minimizing the homelessness of beautiful adoptables such as ours.
By e-mail appointment only. As they arise, adoption events will be announced on our website under Events.
Fees apply, and an adoption contract must be agreed to and signed. A meeting with your potential pet is required.
We like to engage in e-mail or phone correspondence prior to arranging any meetings, and we will send a draft of our contract for review.
The American Street Cat, Inc. (aka TASC) is based in Brooklyn, NY. We adopt out to neighboring boroughs and the tri-state area.
