About Bella the Boy

Bella is a very special guy. Not just because he likes to wear sweaters or because he rocks one of the most popular female pet names. And it’s not even his origin story, although that’s a good one: Bella was rescued several years ago, totally emaciated, from a playground in Fort Greene. For some reason, no one decided to check under his tail for a while, so he was named Bella (partially because he was thought to be a different cat, but that’s a whole other story). For many years, he lived happily atop the counter and shelves of neighborhood pet store Who’s Your Doggy, until their Fort Greene location closed. We weren’t sure if Bella would enjoy a home life, so we offered him a chance in a foster home and HE WAS SO HAPPY. So now it’s time for this weary traveler to find his forever home. Bella tolerates other cats and dogs, but would really enjoy being your own and only love-muffin (although he is willing to entertain other options). He’s physically around 8 years old, although he’s as wise as an ancient philosopher and as emotionally fragile as a tiny toddler. As may be apparent by this lengthy bio, it’s hard to find the right words to explain the joy that is our Bella - maybe you’ll just have to meet him to experience yourself.

Young and playful Lucy is a loving and careful mother of three silly kittens. Rescued from the streets of Brooklyn when her babies were newborns, Lucy is enjoying the opportunity to be a kitten again herself. Since Lucy is only around a year old, she would love to be adopted with one of her kittens as they all enjoy playing together.  Lucy is a sleek and slender grey short-hair, with crisp white markings on her neck and feet and vivid green eyes. She is the Audrey Hepburn of cats -- elegantly tall with an extra-long tail. Serene and yet curious about the world around her, Lucy’s always interested in what humans or other cats are doing and enjoys looking out the window. She is a confident explorer and will seek out new spaces. She easily slips under, over, and around most barriers and extra care should be taken to prevent escapes. She has more inner calm than usually seen in a cat. She’s especially relaxed when picked up or carried. She will seek out a human to curl up with, but never tries to get between the reader and her book or walk on the computer keyboard as many cats do. Though she rarely mews, she will sometimes make a little chirruping sound when she’s looking for something or someone. She is fastidious in her grooming and is often be seen aggressively cleaning her kittens. Interested in meeting Lucy and her kittens? Please fill out an application. show less

Soft, gentle lap cat seeks 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 more good people. I am seven years old and ok, maybe I have a little bit of a paunch, but if you make a point of it, I do get into a bit of sport with my favorite pink ribbon, or (be still my beating heart!) a Cat Dancer! I’ve still got it! ;-) I like to sit on the back of the couch and watch the tube with you and if you look in my direction I will say hi with a chirp. I might even crawl into your lap! I enjoy telling you all about my day when I’m in that chatty kind of mood. A good roll in some catnip is always welcome. And boy, do I like to snuggle up to somebody and get some lovin! Belly rubs are my favorite! And you will like it too, because I’m sooo soft and fluffy! The thing is though, I’m a bit shy. My owner of six years left me for a girlfriend with allergies and the loss was traumatic. After that I was bounced around a bit too much and so sometimes I want to chill under the bed when new people come to visit. However, I do get over it quickly especially when treats and chin rubs are involved. I would also probably be happiest as a solo cat, although there is room for negotiation with the right feline. I am healthy, FIV/FLV negative, neutered, and vaccinated. I am now living with a nice lady, but she won't commit. So if you're ready for a sweet, devoted, faithful companion, come meet me at my Clinton Hill foster home! show less
