About Charlotte

Very demure and lovely calico seeking a patient and kind human to pass the days and give lots of ear scratches and belly rubs. Charlotte is sweet and affectionate, especially when food is involved, but can still be a little shy of loud noises and new things. She's looking for an adopter who can help her continue to learn to trust and teach her how to play! A little bit of patience plus lots of treats will bring her out of her shell. Charlotte does not like to be picked up and is much happier if you meet her down on her level.  Once comfortable, Charlotte is an avid explorer and is especially happy to investigate if food is involved. Keep some liver snacks on hand and Charlotte will provide the cuddles. She is always sure to finish her meals and never complains about taking medicine, especially if it’s followed by some behind the ear scratches. Charlotte has a ton of love to give and just needs a human to show her love back! This cat would prefer to be adopted alone and be the only cat in the home.

Boots is a hot mess with a giant heart. This older, very sweet tuxedo cat was apparently living on the street for the past ten years -- and it really shows! When this guy initially joined us, the wear and tear of his life outside was very apparent -- he was malnourished, sneezing, bad stomach problems and just really dirty! Now that his general health has somewhat improved and he has been brushed and bathed many times by his doting fosters, this gentleman is ready for his own home and family. Boots loves to be brushed and petted, and can be chatty when he wants food or attention, with an endearing meow that sounds like a whispered groan. He will rear on his hind legs to get head scratches, and after you feed him, he will do his best to rub his slobbery fangs on you in appreciation. Boots was shy at first, but has learned to trust those who feed and brush him.  Boots is still a work in progress -- he is in need of dental surgery and a mindful diet to keep his digestion under control. His eyesight isn’t great, but he does have some vision. This fixer upper is a gentle and friendly companion who is enjoying the upgrade to indoor living and we’d be more than happy to discuss his medical concerns and partner with an adopter to ensure that he becomes and stays his healthiest self. This cat is FIV+ and will live a normal healthy and long life when provided with quality care such as a balanced diet and yearly wellness exams (like any cat). As FIV+ is not transmittable between neutered/spayed cats under normal circumstances, we are happy for FIV+ cats to mingle with FIV- cats in their adoptive homes. show less

Sweet Boyton is a large cat with a small head looking for a quiet home. We adore this slightly strange shaped buddy. Although his professional name is Boyton, we affectionately call him Draino as he joined us with some drains in his head to clear out a bad injury. He was found in very bad shape in a cat colony in the Bronx, but now that he is totally healed, this 2ish year old boy is ready to cuddle with you! If possible, he'd like to spend all day with his head and paws by your shoulder. He loves under-the-chin pets, belly rubs, and being pet while he’s eating, but will sometimes indicate he’s had enough with a little nip. On occasion, he enjoys curling up in a cozy spot in the closet, but he generally likes to be in the same room as you and will happily follow you around (he even waits in the bathroom while his foster is in the shower). Boyton seemed very overwhelmed around other cats, so he would do best in a quiet home as a single cat or with a respectful and calm feline companion who won’t intimidate this sensitive guy. This cat has a Mouth on the Mend -- Boyton was rescued with dental issues and is in need of surgery. In lieu of an adoption fee, we are asking for a larger donation and/or assistance crowdsourcing funds towards their necessary vet bills. We’d be happy to talk more about this -- please submit an adoption application if you’d like to connect. Interested in being a Tooth Fairy for one of our cats? Let us know! show less

Cally and Tarlee are a pair of siblings from Staten Island enjoying their new life in Brooklyn.  Cally is a goofy lovebug and is super affectionate and will climb into your lap at every opportunity. Seriously, EVERY opportunity. The rest of her time is spent playing, looking for toys, or following you around, waiting for a lap to lay on. She absolutely craves human affection, which is super hilarious when you consider that sometimes her greeting is a hiss...a friendly hiss, who knew!? Tarlee is still considering his options, but loving all the toys and treats and slowly deciding that humans are not so bad. He’s also a huge fan of meat tubes and doesn’t mind if you buy his love with a Churu. Cally and Tarlee are the perfect pair because while Tarlee is timid, and slowly learning to trust, Cally jumps in to offer comfort, affection and assurance. The two have just the right dynamic of hyper and outgoing (Cally) and pensive and cautious (Tarlee). If you are able to offer a quiet place for them to get settled, and can be patient as Tarlee blossoms and grows, then these two are for you! For more pictures see their foster’s instagram @bobo_the_foster_dad These two cats are bonded and must be adopted together -- applications for just one of them will not be processed. show less

Charlotte and Millie are extremely bonded best friends who have lived together for years. They are head over heels in love with each other -- always cuddling and grooming each other. Charlotte (orange) immediately jumped on the couch at her foster home to demand pets, while Millie (grey) is a bit more timid and follows Charlotte’s lead. This means that as soon as you bond with Charlotte, Millie will become more comfortable with you! Most times, as soon as Charlotte begins getting pets and scratches, Millie gets jealous and runs over to join. It’s rarer for Millie to approach you on her own until she’s comfortable. These girls are a little older and are very relaxed, although occasionally get a small bout of zoomies in the morning. These lovely ladies are precious and love to cuddle with each other and humans and are perfect companions for working from home. These two cats are bonded and must be adopted together -- applications for just one of them will not be processed. These cats have Mouths on the Mend -- they were rescued with dental issues and are in need of surgery. In lieu of an adoption fee, we are asking for a larger donation and/or assistance crowdsourcing funds towards their necessary vet bills. We’d be happy to talk more about this -- please submit an adoption application if you’d like to connect. Interested in being a Tooth Fairy for our cats? Let us know! show less

Dexter is a really sweet boy. He can be a little shy at first,  but once he is comfortable, he will even get on two feet to reach your hand for pats. He loves to be pet and constantly purrs.  He loves to explore everything around him and is very curious. He is also a very vocal cat and doesn't like to be left alone. He meows for attentions and meows when he wants food. He also does not like sudden movements but once reassured, he will come back for pets. He loves to sharpen his claws on the cat tree and even plays with toys.  He loves different kinds of treats and loves to jump on high ledges. Although Dexter is a shy boy, with a little time he blossoms in to a sweet heart that will capture your heart instantly. Dexter previously lived with several other cats and we think that he would prefer to be adopted with a friend. Dexter was rescued with dental issues and is in need of surgery. In lieu of an adoption fee, we are asking for a larger donation and/or assistance crowdsourcing funds towards their necessary vet bills. Dexter is FIV+ and will live a normal healthy and long life when provided with quality care such as a balanced diet and yearly wellness exams (like any cat). As FIV+ is not transmittable between neutered/spayed cats under normal circumstances, we are happy for FIV+ cats to mingle with FIV- cats in their adoptive homes. show less

The principal will see you now! Dr. Samuels (named after the principal in "Head of the Class") is basically the best cat ever. Seriously. He has a giant head (complete with jowels) and will sit next to his empty food bowl and stare into your soul in a way that almost opens the can of food by itself. This big guy is friendly and slow-moving. He's really into boxes and confused by beds. Dr. Samuels came to us with an eye condition, and after seeing a couple of vets, it seems as though it is just cosmetic! (He did recently scratch his eye which is why it is red and looks irritated and he has to wear a cone for a couple of weeks, but not forever). Dr. Samuels likes to be involved with everything. He has joined many zoom calls, helped himself to our snacks and is always underfoot asking for some pets. He likes to get what he wants (ham sitting on the counter, for example) and needs adopters to create boundaries and be firm when necessary. He can be a bit mouthy -- we are working with him on this behavior, but it will be important to be strict about using toys instead of hands when playing with him. We think that Dr. Samuels would do best with folks who have some experience with cats. He would be fine on his own or with other pets, he really doesn't care much about the other animals at the cafe as long as he gets enough attention. show less

Easy Rider will steal your heart with his majestic purr. This ten year old guy was rescued on the street by a member of the public who was concerned they had found a pregnant female cat about to give birth — nope! Just a pleasantly plump middle-aged gentleman. Though we’re not sure how he ended up on the street, he made himself instantly at home with his fosters — walking around like he’d been on a long vacation. Easy Rider is super familiar cohabitating with a busy family in a big city. He is fully unperturbed by sounds: hairdryers, toilet flushes, street sounds, dishwashers, kids, vacuums (the fosters literally vacuumed under his feet) — nothing spooks him. He’s supremely gentle — all love, all heart, all purrs — and even when drooling from catnip is in control of his body and doesn’t appear to get overstimulated. He’s not too talkative, but will pipe up when he’s curious about something or when he wakes up from one of his many naps for a status update. Easy Rider is a fabulous, big-headed, solid boy who is really just a puddle of purrs. In many ways, he’s like a happy grandpa: he’s got his favorite chair, isn’t bothered by ruckus, eats when he’s hungry and humors the humans who want to play. He is an instant family member. Easy Rider has mild dental disease and is in need of dental surgery sooner rather than later — we’d be happy to talk to you more about his health. show less
