Story
We got Gilbert in 2016 from Nashville. He was 5 then, so he is probably around 12 now. He's been nothing but a perfect sweetheart. Loves cuddling and being pet. Very affectionate. Not shy around people. We recently learned that our newborn daughter is allergic to cats, that is the only reason why we reluctantly give him up. We are simply looking for a home where he'll be loved and cared for.

Story
Hi I got this cat from his previous owner who is now pregnent and could not raise him anymore. I tried hosting for 3 month but I found myself super allergic for cat fur and my moving from New York make it hard for me to raise anymore. He is a energetic, very clingy orange cat. He is neutered and annual vaccined. I am so sorry I could not host him anymore and I wish I could find him a new owner here. He is very fond of people, but need to be single owner, as he is a little aggresive when dealing with other cats. He will follow you anywhere when you wake up, in bathroom, kitchen and everywhere to touch you. He is a good boy indeed.

Story
Spaghetti, like many other friendly cats, was thrown out to the street only because he was not neutered the owners did not like the strong smell of his urine and decided to get rid of him. The night I found him he was crying and asking for food. I offered food, he began eating and let me bring him home. He has been fully vetted and he is ready to go to a loving home.

Story
Schmatta was running around the neighborhood and being fed in our neighbor’s backyard. Around 4 months ago we took over some of the care of that neighbor’s cats when she became very ill. Schmatta continued to be fed outside by us, in the neighbor’s yard and on a street nearby. We became particularly concerned about him because he didn’t get along with the other street cats and didn’t have good street crossing instincts. We had already started feeding on our front porch and hoped that he would start feeding at our house and stop crossing the street. He started eating on our porch and following us, like a dog, to our neighbor’s house. He was adapting to us, but we were not convinced that he’d ever get along with other cats or happily stay indoors. He has since come into our house. He’s turned out to get along with other cats…mostly. He does not appear to have any interest in outside. He also has turned out to be a lap cat that likes tummy rubs. Who knew? We are guessing that his age is between 1-2 years old. Sadly, that means that he’s too young for people of our age. This is why we’re looking for a permanent home for him. Someone will end up with a great cat. IF INTERESTED, Email : amada1021@gmail.com Or text (201) 867-8543 Adoption fee and adoption protocol is mandatory

Story
Meet Busta Rhymes and his "life partner", Sunshine. Busta Rhymes lived a hard life on the streets as basically a blind cat trying to survive. After a major eye surgery and losing one eye, Busta now only has partial vision but gets around perfectly fine. Sunshine ended up in a hoarding situation in Brooklyn that made national news. She lived in very tight quarters and in a small crate with 3 other cats. She's curious, funny and not at all a "hider". She's out and wants to be seen! Through pure luck, the two bonded cats ended up in the same foster home to heal, and BOOM!! Just like that, they were attached at the hip. Always together, always in sync. Busta protects Sunshine, and together they make the cutest pair. If you're looking for CHILL cats and want a rewarding experience, look no further. Busta loves to be pet once he warms up to his new human, and Sunshine will follow you endlessly until you feed her a churu (favorite food in the whole world). A few other cute traits on this little couple: * Because he only has the one eye, Busta always looks like he's winking, which is adorable. * Busta's head is enormous, giant like a bowling ball. That just meant that there is more room to scratch his head! * Busta might not be a lap cat per se, but he loves to come up on the couch and sleep next to his human. He curls up and puts his head against the arm of the couch and hunkers down. He purrs a lot when he is petted! * Busta's favorite toy is the fishing pole! He runs and grabs the string while Sunshine watches, curious but not yet getting into the action herself. * Busta and Sunshine do something that looks like kitty kissing! * Sunshine likes to rub up against things - doorframes, the cat carrier, etc. She is now starting to rub up against human legs! * Sunshine has the sweetest, cutest, tiniest little meow. * Sunshine is extremely smart- she knows her name and will come running when called. * Busta and Sunshine use their litter box perfectly. * They love each other very much! Busta Rhymes and Sunshine are looking for a calm home with an experienced adopter who has the time and patience to let the couple continue to blossom. It's such a rewarding experience to take in two bonded cats. They're very low maintenance and super easy to fall in love with!! Want to learn more?
