Seeking a chill dude to hang out on your lap and watch the game with you? Are you ready for your next bromance? Our man Marley is just the pal for you - if he were a person we swear he would be wearing a plaid shirt, beard and baseball cap.
Marley is five years old and has had a bit of a bad run, lately. Born in an outdoor feral cat colony in Ditmas Park and rescued as a kitten, he was recently given up by his owner of five years. Marley was somewhat traumatized when he landed at Brooklyn Cat Cafe. After some time hanging out UNDER the couches he discovered it was cooler to hang out ON the couches and meet people. It turned out to be even cooler to sit in their laps (including Santa's!) Boy, does he like to snuggle up to somebody and get some lovin! He also is kindof getting into cat toys and enjoying some exercise now and then.
Thus this mellow, affectionate boy has been making the best of this transition period, but he is really looking forward to a stable, forever home and devoting himself to one or two good people instead of an endless series of casual meetings with strangers.
Marley is neutered, vaccinated and FIV/FeLV negative. If you'd like to meet Marley, stop by Brookly Cat Cafe at 149 Atlantic Avenue, catcafebk.com.

Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition, Inc.
Our rescue group was formed in December 2007, but all our Board Members have had extensive experience rescuing and working with abandoned animals. We often work with other rescue organizations to find appropriate and safe foster and adoptive homes for our pet clients. We regularly go to areas with abandoned animals and collect them. The animals are taken to a licensed veterinarian examined, treated and spayed or neutered. Every effort is made to work with the animal and our foster and adoptive families to find a suitable forever home.
For those animals who are truly wild and feral, we release the animal in a safe and secure location after it has recovered from its medical treatment. We also work with certified wildlife rehabilitators to rescue injured and orphaned wildlife. Our organization is focused on improving the welfare of the abandoned animals in need of help in Brooklyn. In furthering that goal, our resources are focused on the animals.
Aside from a few minimal overhead costs such as our website and phone services, our entire budget is spent on animal care such as medical and food costs.
