Zeus s the absolutely sweetest cat in the world. He comes running when you get home and he cuddles right up to you. When you are sitting, he climbs into your lap and snuggles up. He rolls over and just wants to be petted. Very loving, very sweet. He is good with children. He has been in a home with his brother Poseidon since he was a kitten. His former mom says, "We love these kitties, but my daughter has grown increasingly allergic and it is impossible to keep them.They both get along well and are both independent of each other. I think they like being together and chase each other around the apartment. I have two scratch pads that they both really like to use and they do not scratch the furniture."

Poseidon is so sweet. He comes running when you get home, and he also wants to be petted.

 . Chance .
  • Domestic Short Hair-black and white
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
This girl is looking for a safe indoor/outdoor home or barn/farm. Her name is Chance and she’s about 3 years old. She is spayed. Chance is friendly but doesn’t like to be held since she was always outside on the street. Her previous caretaker said that when she was a kitten she fell out of a tree and hurt her neck. He couldn’t take her to the vet, so neck didn’t heal well. That is why her head is tilted. It makes her very cute though. Chance is a very easy cat – she loves to eat, nap and very sweet; she’s good with cats. A person who was “taking care” of her was not doing a very good job so she needs to find a new place ASAP. Please email ana.bravo@us.bnpparibas.com if you can help Chance find a home she deserves. Please share!

Freddy is a sweet boy, around 3 years old (as of Feb '17). After some time at the shelter he has gotten more and more sweet and interested in relating to people. He will come up for attention, rubbing his face against your hand and standing on his hind feet to bop his forehead against your palm! It's super sweet. Freddy is a very loving cat, but really territorial. He’s not aggressive though, he just gets overwhelmed easily and doesn’t feel comfortable with other cats. At the shelter he's always feeling kind of put upon, and when he feels vulnerable he is very loud about it (but it’s not because he’s mean, he's actually the one who is being threatened!). The right home for Freddy is probably one where he's the only cat so he feels secure!

 . Contessa .  . Contessa .  . Contessa .
  • Domestic Medium Hair

  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Prefers home without dogsPrefers home without cats
Contessa combines the best qualities of a loyal watchdog and an independent-minded cat. She is people-oriented and always tries to be near her favorite humans, following them from room to room and sitting at their feet patiently awaiting attention. If you adopt her, she will meow her greetings and converse with you when you come home. This is what her foster mom says: “Contessa is such a love! She is very sweet and will only eat if we are in the room to keep her company. She's very cuddly and loves to be pet. She's gonna make someone really happy in her forever home. 🙂 Also, she's a lap cat. “ This beautiful but tough lady likes to have her ears scratched (bliss!) and also her chin. She may take some time to trust a new person to touch her hindquarters and tail. We suspect she was an extremely bonded pet that was dumped when she got pregnant—she seemed broken-hearted and confused when she arrived at the shelter. It will take a little while for her to feel secure in her new home We suspect that Contessa is part Siberian. She is small for that breed, but her appearance (tabby longhair, mane around the neck, and toe tufts, face shape, big round eyes) fits a forest cat’s. Even more so, aspects of her personality that were described above are very Siberian: highly bonding, following her person from room to room, brave, interested in conversing. If she is part Siberian, she might be lower allergen than other cats. She needs to be an only cat, and probably an only pet. She’d be better with adults or older teens who are sensitive enough to handle her gently, at least at first. FIV+ FIV is not contagious to humans or dogs. It’s even hard to transmit to another cat, requiring a deep bite. Indoor FIV+ cats have a normal life span.

When we took Polly, she was sickeningly thin: she had severe dental disease. Polly needed a full mouth extraction. Now baby is recovered and feels much better. Polly accepts love and attention but would never bug you for anything (well, except maybe treats =) ). She's a very sweet kitty, waiting out there for someone special to come and notice her! She will be a dear friend, no doubt! Polly is 4 y.o. as of Sept. '16.

She is about 3 years old as of August ’16. Mama develops a keen interest in a person once she has gotten to know him or her a bit. She exhibits traits of a kitty who could become very attached to her special person. Do you want to be her special person?

This handsome boy is Hercules, he's about 2 years old now (as of Aig. '16). He's not really friendly with people but not totally feral either. He would probably make a great barn cat, or if you don't need a lap cat, he'll be your boy! Hercules loves other cats and love treats. He loves to play and is content observing from afar.

Hi. My name is Indie, and my heart is broken. I need a foster or adoptive home as soon as possible. I think I’m a dashing fellow. With my hazel eyes, tawny coat, white shirtfront, and manly good looks, I rather resemble this other “Indy” (Indiana Jones =) ) I was adopted as a kitten seven years ago from For Animals Inc. I’ve been a loving pet ever since. My person had to move and was forced to return me to the shelter, and now I’m pining and having trouble eating. I need a quiet home so I can thrive. My LIKES include: head and chin scratches, belly rubs, gravy (yum!!), and chattering with people I’m fond of! My DISLIKES include being in a multi-cat shelter. 🙁 However, I’ve lived with two other cats (my litter mates) before. Someone once said that when you visit a shelter, you should pay special attention to the kitties who are sad and depressed, because those are the ones that have the capacity to grow deeply attached to people. I’m proof of that. Can you help me?

Here's the story of Tiger Lily: Theresa [the founder of our shelter] saw a cat galloping down Linden Blvd. She ran across streets without looking, she just was bolting. Theresa, with just pure luck was able to follow her. Once the kitty smelled the food she stopped running and came closer. Theresa sat under a truck for about half an hour to coxed cat to take bits of food, then she went back to her van and got a carrier. By only a miracle and lots of prays she was able to get kitty to follow the food inside the carrier and shut her in. She is around 6 months, terrified; we have no idea what happened to her but she is petrified with fear. She is obviously not feral just scared. She also is quite thin but looks healthy otherwise. She does have some scarring over one eye and a bit thin but otherwise seems healthy. Catching her, without a trap, on a busy street, was a tiny miracle. We called a kitty Tiger Lily, and now she was spayed and tested. She is looking for a good foster or forver home to help her overcome her fears and start trusting people again. She is not a lap cat and will probably need a lot of work to gain her trust, but if you do this, you will have the most loyal furfriend ever!

This is Jeremy. He is around 3 years old (as of April '16) and has been living on the streets for probably two difficult years. When he was found he was badly beaten up, infested with fleas and ear mites, and of course not neutered. Jeremy is a teddy bear to people but might be a bully to the other cats, depending on their personalities. Overall Jeremy is a sweetie, but very possessive of his human. The photos don't show how unique looking he is, still very soiled from his life outside but a true beauty indeed!

Hey there! I'm Meowcus I mean Marcus! I was out in the street and sick but my friend Theresa from For Animals helped me get better. Now I'm up for adoption! =) Theresa says I am 'such a love, pure love and attention seeker' =) Marcus has a secret: He dreams of being somebody's lapcat and dedicated cuddling partner. Life on the street made Marcus sick and left a mark on him, but despite all this he is full of love. He hopes that he will find someone who will accept his kisses and snuggles. Marcus LOVES to head-butt and cuddle. He would let you rub his belly and in a minute he'll turn into a real lovebug, so don't let his 'I'm so serious' looks scare you. He is a special kitty who needs special treatment! He’s dreaming about finding the one who can look right into his heart and see what a lovely friend he could be. Marcus is abut 5 years old as of Sept. '16.

Junkyard mom is a sweet shy kitty who will become your dear friend if you just give her your love! She had a rough life on the streets. She was rescued together with her 2 sisters from a Junkyard on Liberty Ave in 2011. They were all in very bad shape: thin, covered in fleas, and had upper respiratory infections; each of the 3 had 5 to 6 kittens with them. Her two sisters were adopted so are all the surviving kittens. Junkyard mom was run over by a car at the junkyard so she limps on her hind leg. She was the most traumatized of the 3; this is why she is so shy. Right now she’s about 6 years old. She loves other cats and human attention, but very shy with strangers. Once she gets to know you, she enjoys to be petted and to receive love (and treets! =)!

Jasper is a handsome, sweet black cat with the greenest eyes, and a face like a black panther. He is about 5 years old and is a real charmer. He is a little on the small size for an adult cat, but what he lacks in size he makes up for in personality. This super sweet boy loves to greet his human friends at the door, rub up against them, and sit in their laps for hours. He loves to play with toy mice and chase the laser beams. Jasper is a purr machine and gets along well with other cats and loves all humans. He was originally a stray that kept coming by Theresa’s house. She took him in after seeing him coming to her window, shivering out in the cold. He has been in the shelter for about 3 years now, and would be ever so grateful for a home of his own!

When we rescued Archer 4 years ago from Archer Ave. in South Jamaica it was a bitterly cold February night. He and 9 others were living inside an abandoned parking garage with no place to keep warm within the concrete walls. He was diagnosed with glaucoma so we needed to remove his right eye. Archer will need some time to get used to people, he is very cautious but not aggressive. He just needs some time to see he can trust you. He is good with other cats but doesn't like bullies.

Vibeke, with her big green eyes, is a beauty. She loves other cats and is always with them. Just as much, she loves attention from people. Much of the time, she will wait for her turn--she is never jealous of the other cats. Sometimes, however, she will approach you for attention. She is an all-around good natured cat who gets along with everyone. She has been with us for about 5 years. We got her with her 6 babies from a garage in Queens. Vivica is very affectionate. She can always be found amongst other cats, and when there are kittens around she loves to mother them. But it's not just felines she enjoys the company of, Vibeke would be happiest in a home with humans to love her as well! When she gets happy and excited from being petted, she snuffles. It's adorable. Vibeke should be with another cat, and would probably be fine with children. She’s hoping there is someone very special out there, who will one day take her home. Could it be you?

Myra is a beautiful black kitty, about 4.5 years old (as of March 2017). She is bashful, but very eager to please and hungry for love and affection. She will grow very attached. She likes high places and is playful. A great hunter, can catch a fly out of midair. Myra is fine with other cats, but doesn't cling to them. She may take a bit of patience and time to get comfortable, but she will bond and be very loyal. She is not assertive and will flourish when she has less competition than she has in the shelter. She really wants a bond with people. Myra is a little chunky because she eats a lot of dry food and doesn't have much room to play. She's a big ball of sweetness! Photos by Kim Brooks

This beautiful lady is Rosie, she’s shy but loyal, and would be at your side forever once you show her love and affection. Rosie is about 10 years old, she has been with For Animals Inc. for just about 3 years. Rosie is a sweetie but does not like to be picked up. She wants love on her own terms, although she is a purr machine and loves to get petted. Rosie had a difficult life on the streets before she was rescued. She was taken in by For Animals when she was brought to us to be spayed. Feeder told us she had over 7 litters of kittens in her lifetime. She had to cross a busy street to get to the feeder's house so she stayed with us at the shelter. Rosie would do best in a quiet home without small kids.
