About Jalapeno - NYC

This adorable tuxedo girl is one year old, Jalapeno. She can be shy at first, but once she comes out of her shell, she's affectionate and all about being pet and brushed. She likes to explore and enjoys having full-fledged conversations with her humans. Jalapeno is definitely kitten-like, super curious, friendly, and on the small side. A staff member says: "I have been pet sitting with Jalapeno while the foster is out of town. This little lady is a complete sweetheart muffin. She will follow me around the apartment. She absolutely LOVES greenies and I am teaching her the game "find it" and how to turn in a circle. She is very smart and loves to learn. She even figured out her food puzzles! She is very loving and will push her body against yours and ask for pets. We are working on getting her more comfortable going in and out of her carrier. She will come and greet me as soon as I arrive. She is very talkative and wants to tell you all about her day. She is just a love!" Jalapeno has FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus), which is a lifelong infection of cats. FIV, similar to HIV in people, may weaken a cat's immune system but cannot be transmitted to other species, nor humans.

Boots and Cole are the cutest pair of kitties! These brothers from other mothers have been lifeline companions and depend on one other to feel comfortable in their environment. In many ways, these two are yin and yang; while Cole has the quietest and cutest chirp, Boots likes to announce himself when he enters a room by letting out a loud meow before settling in his space. While Cole likes to just chill out, Boots is more adventurous and will be out and about the house during the day exploring. Cole prefers to hang out down low while Boots like to sit up high and survey everything. In fact, window watching is one of Boots's favorite activities. While neither of them are cuddly lap cats, Boots always wants to be in the same room as you. Cole, on the other hand, has been described as a "ghost cat". He tends to disappear for much of the day, but Cole will appear in his room every night, where he requests belly rubs (which he loves). Both cats, however, really love working out the scratch post. Neither one is toy centric and seem to prefer the scratching post above all toys. Boots & Cole are fine with their foster's dogs and are apathetic towards cats. (They won't engage or play with other cats.) Both are litterbox trained and have good house manners. If Boots needs to find Cole, he will howl until they are together. It has taken some time, but Boots and Cole have finally reached a daily routine that keeps them busy and happy in their foster home. They love attention and are affectionate but are not keen on being held. If you are interested in meeting Boots and Cole, and giving them the space and time to thrive, please submit an appointment request here (copy & paste in your web browser): Current age: 5 years old Current weight: 12 pounds show less
