Adopt Marley: Lap Cat Seeks Long-term Relationship

Male Domestic Shorthair


Soft, gentle lap cat seeking long term relationship with cuddly human. My name is Marley and I am tired of an endless series of casual meetings with strangers. I am ready to settle down in a stable, forever home and devote myself to one or two good people.

I am five years old and have been through some upheavals, lately. Born in an outdoor feral cat colony in Ditmas Park and rescued as a kitten, I was recently left by my owner of five years. I was somewhat traumatized when I landed at Brooklyn Cat Cafe, but after some time hanging out UNDER the couches I 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, do I like to snuggle up to somebody and get some lovin! I am starting to get a bit of a paunch and if you make a point of it, I might even get into some cat toys for a little exercise now and then.

Unfortunately, I was not thrilled with all those annoying other cats at the Cat Cafe, so I went to a foster, who then had to travel. I am trying things out with another nice lady, but she won't commit. So if you're ready for a sweet, devoted, faithful companion, give me a call! Or email that is...

I am neutered (but don't get personal about it), vaccinated and FIV/FeLV negative. If you'd like to meet me in my temporary Kensington pad, please email

Shelter Description

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.
