About Uncle Goose

Sweet and gentle Goose is such a special guy. He was rescued initially as part of a large TNR project on the edge of Bedstuy, but due to severe injuries, he wasn't able to be released immediately after his neuter. This proved to be lucky for all of us as we learned that this shy and scared orange cat was not feral. It was a tough initial recovery for Goose -- he had to wear a giant cone and had to be cleaned and medicated daily. At first, Goose was so scared of us, but over time and with a lot of patience, Goose began to relax and realize how much he enjoyed our attention. Once he was healed, we wanted to find a friend for this shy buddy, but he was always intimidated by potential adult cat friends...so we gave him some tiny kittens! Yep, our Goose became a proud papa of three young kittens who immediately started nursing on him (seriously) and cuddling with their new uncle. Since then, Uncle Goose has raised many young kittens while he's continued to practice his social skills. He is much braver with humans now, but needs a quiet home with at least one other friendly and cuddly cat who will give Goose the love and snuggles that he so clearly enjoys.

Coco is a two year old active and affectionate brindle pit mix who thinks she is a lapcat. Due to her past, she is still working through some things and is looking for an adoptive or long term foster home with patient and experienced people willing to continue her training. This sweet girl with a giant smile will reward you with love and more kisses than you could ever want. Coco was initially adopted unspayed from the city shelter by a family with semi-permanent housing and therefore Coco moved around a lot. She had at least one litter of puppies and was pregnant again when we rescued her. When she first joined us, Coco had no idea how to walk outside and was terrified of any other dog we saw on the street. Although she can still be dog-reactive, she has made incredible progress. Occasionally we still occasionally encounter dogs who Coco can't stand, but generally she's able to move on quickly with the right guidance. Coco is OBSESSED with playing fetch -- so much so, that she has been known to toss the ball for herself. She loves to cuddle and give hugs and is extremely obedient when inside. If given the chance, she will curl up with you at night, snoring gently. Coco still needs some training to have the confidence and ability for casual strolls on the sidewalk without occasionally losing her mind and barking her head off at nearby dogs, but she is so eager to please and really does try her best almost all of the time. We would love to find a foster to adopt home for Coco to continue honing her skills as she is still a work in progress -- but aren't we all? If you are interested in fostering Coco with the intention to adopt, please fill out an application at www.bbawc.org/dog -- don't miss your chance to meet this special girl. show less
