About Kitty

Looking for an undemanding, well-behaved, affectionate cat? Kitty is your gal! Her foster describes how she does not jump on the counters, scratch things up or hog the pillow in bed. She is very civilized! This beautiful, five-year-old torbie does like to sit in your lap for a quick cuddle or snuggle next to you in bed for awhile before moving over to her favorite sleep spot. Seeing as she is so genteel, she isn't crazy about really young children. Calm, older children who respect her space and autonomy will earn her respect and affection in return. Kitty was surrendered to the city shelter by a previous family. She is grateful to now be in a quiet and comfortable foster home, but is waiting for that special person or people to spend the rest of her life with.

Coco is a two year old active and affectionate brindle pit mix with a complicated past who is looking for a home with patient and experienced people willing to continue her training. Coco was initially adopted unspayed from the city shelter by a family with semi-permanent housing and therefore moved around a lot and had at least one litter of puppies. She came to us during a project of spaying and neutering cats at a homeless shelter. It's unclear how much time Coco had been able to spend outside and it appears that most of her experience with other dogs had been traumatic. Coco is very dog-reactive and at this point has yet to be able to interact with other dogs. Fast forward a few months and this dog has become our shadow. Tiny chance she thinks she is a cat (who could blame her considering she lives at the Brooklyn Cat Cafe), but she is also 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. Due to being so dog-reactive, it is hard to capture her focus when outside. That said, she is continually improving. Coco still needs some extensive 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. We are still working on her dog aggression, but feel that in order to make permanent progress, she needs more stability and more attention. We would love to find a foster to adopt home for Coco to continue honing her skills. We can provide some ongoing support -- either via phone and/or in person if you are located near Brooklyn Heights or Fort Greene or have a car and are willing to come to us. We've taken some extra time before listing Coco for adoption because she is still a work in progress, but aren't we all? We would love if Coco found a home with access to backyard or outdoor space or in an area that isn't as saturated with dogs as Brooklyn Heights to give her a more relaxed chance to work on her outside skills  Coco adores cats, but does like to chase and play hard. Although Coco has yet to make a dog friend, it is very possible that with appropriate (and probably very slow) introduction, she would really enjoy and thrive in a household with another dog. She clearly wants to play, just doesn't know how yet. If you are interested in fostering Coco with the intention to adopt, please fill out an application at www.bbawc.org/dog -- if you have specific questions, feel free to email info@bbawc.org, but please note that due to limited resources, there may be a long delay — the fastest way to receive a response is to put in an application. show less

Madeleine and her Kittens

Madeleine, the mama of this litter, though cautious at first, is appreciative of your care. She loves pets and ear rubs, and rests her head in your hand once she knows you. Super quick and playful, she is as fast as a kitten in pursuit of a toy. She found herself outdoors and about to give birth at 8 months old, having had most of her tail broken off. Her bobbed tail healed completely and does not slow her down in the least. She was a great mom and never rejected any of her kittens. She's especially tight with Mon Ami, who would love to stay with his mom if possible. Mon Ami is the athlete of the litter. He can jump higher and run faster than the rest, landing with silent grace, but once he has had some play time, he wants his share of pets and rubs and shows his mellow side. He lets his brother get some petting first, but he watches and waits his turn the whole time. He loves to go exploring with his mama Madeleine. Mighty Righty also loves to play with his siblings, mama, and humans, but his first priority is getting cuddles, pets, and rubs. This lap cat will give you a thorough but gentle massage while you work on your computer and will not leave unless a fly flies by or he must join Mon Ami and Madeleine in a game of chase. All are spayed and neutered, up to date on vaccinations, FIV/FeLV negative. Mon Ami and Mighty Righty were born March 12, 2019.
