- Adoption fee applies, references checked
- All our cats are spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, tested for FIV and feline leukemia, and dewormed if necessary. Adopters will get copies of vaccination records.
- Adopters of kittens that are too young for spay/neuter must agree to bring them back to us when old enough to be fixed at no cost to adopter. We prefer to get kittens fixed when they are around five or six months old.
- We usually prefer to adopt kittens in pairs, since kittens need playmates in order to grow up to be happy, sociable adult cats.
- Prospective adopters must fill out an adoption application. It usually takes us two or three days to check references and do a quick home visit. We promise we do not care about decor - we just want to make sure that all the windows have screens and that the home is safe for cats.
- Our adoption fee is $75 per adult cat, $100 per kitten (because it includes spay/neuter when the kitten is old enough).
- Declawing is absolutely forbidden. Our adoption contract is very clear on this point.
- We always take back our cats if for some reason the adoption doesn't work out.

Jack and Allie are examples of how opposites attract, even when it comes to feline friendship. They met in their foster home and soon became inseparable. Jack is the big gray beast, a cat who welcomes you home by leaning against your legs and purring loudly. He adores male cats and male humans, because while Jack may be neutered, he is all male. He loves wrestling with other athletic cats and is capable of amazing feats of acrobatics in response to a laser pointer. He is around three years old. Allie is the six-year-old tuxedo. He was found on a freezing cold day in an old carrier, abandoned a block away from the ACC (Animal Care and Control). He was so depressed at first, poor boy. He would sit staring at the wall for hours on end, the picture of sadness. Then he discovered Jack, and life changed completely. Now they are inseparable, with Jack, the younger cat, as the leader and Allie as his devoted sidekick. Allie has grown to trust people, too, following his foster mother around and grooming her hair as she's falling asleep. But his main love will always be Jack. Jack and Allie must go together. They are neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and will be microchipped before going to their new home.
Michael and Ralphie are super sweet and bonded brothers who need a home together. Anyone who has ever had an orange kitty KNOWS how sweet they are. They just turned 2 on May 2nd. They are healthy, neutered, tested, microchipped, UTD on shots and LOVE to play. Break out the laser pointer and they will be your best friend. They currently live in Carmel, NY, but can come down to the Bronx or lower Westchester for a meet-and-greet.
Pedro, orange neutered male, around 3 years old. An escape artist and a bit of a diva -- Pedro is pretty and he knows it -- he is also very loyal. Pedro belonged to a little girl and used to share her bed with all her stuffed animals. When he was surrendered because of a move, he was devastated. Twice he got out of the foster home. He went from door to door along the street, looking for his family and his little girl. Best as an only cat. Pedro is up to date on vaccinations, tested negative for FIV and FLEV, and is microchipped.
Cecil and Clarence: The Fat Boys Cecil and Clarence are bonded three-year-old brothers rescued from the NYC ACC. They are big, friendly cats. Frankly, they are big, fat cats who need a home where they can run and get exercise and grow a little trimmer. They are extremely friendly, particularly with children. Cecil is the sandy orange tabby and he is the active and more adventurous of the two. Clarence is the plump orange and white cat, who is slightly timid at first and tends to follow his brotherâs lead. Both would make excellent family cats, because they are used to living with children. They get along fine with other cats, but are suspicious of dogs. Cecil and Clarence are neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and feline leukemia (negative) and microchipped. They are being fostered in the Bronx.
Bini and her housemates lost their home when their owner went into a hospital and never came home. She is a thin, gentle little cat, white with brown and black tabby. She gets along so well with other cats in her foster home and has a way of gently patting her foster motherâs cheek. Bini is only three years old. She is vaccinated, tested negative for FIV and FeLV, and microchipped. She will be spayed before she gets adopted. Bini's story is told in greater detail here: https://www.facebook.com/MagnificatCatRescueAndRehoming/photos/a.335823976543672.1073741826.335821436543926/825554230903975/?type=3&theater
The ACC called him Cackle, but we thought that was a horrible name for such a wonderful cat and re-christened him Beau. We rescued him from the New York City ACC, where he received the best rating of beginner. He is very friendly to humans but would probably prefer a household without any other cats. And as we discovered, he abominated all dogs and would like to see them erased from the face of the earth. Cackle Beau would do best in a household with all adults or older children. Cackle Beau is about four years old, neutered, vaccinated, negative for FIV and FeLV, and microchipped. He is being fostered in Tuckahoe, lower Westchester. Unfortunately, there are dogs in his foster home, so Cackle Beau stays solely in the bedroom. We would like to get this friendly cat a home of his own where he does not have to be relegated to one room.
Nanny and Timmy came from a hoarding situation in Staten Island. As far as we know they are not related, but they appear to be quite bonded. Timmy is the male silver tabby, about three years old, while Nanny is the tabby with the black stripes and is slightly younger, about a year and a half. Nanny is somewhat timid and tends to follow Timmyâs lead and Timmy is the more outgoing of the two and very friendly. We would like to adopt these two out together because of Nannyâs dependence on Timmy. Both are neutered, vaccinated, negative for FIV and FeLV, and microchipped. They are being fostered in Tuckahoe, lower Westchester.
Saigon is an elegant feline prince who was rescued from the New York City ACC. he is young, only about two years old, but he has the manners and dignity of an older cat. He is affectionate without being clingy, but do expect him to share your bed - he likes to sleep with people - and to keep you company while you are on your computer. He would probably be best as an only cat. He is never aggressive to the other cats in his foster home, but when he looks at them he seems to be thinking, "I really need a manor of my own." He is a very good-looking cat, with an equally good temperament. Saigon is neutered, vaccinated, tested negative for FIV and FLeV, and microchipped. He is being fostered in Riverdale in the Bronx.
Gentle Nala is a male, despite his name. And although his papers describe him as orange, he is really an unusual light peach. Nala is the sweetest-tempered cat. We rescued him in February, when the same owners who had gotten him as a kitten ten years ago dumped him at the New York City ACC with the wholly inadequate excuse of "moving." They did note that in the ten years they had him, Nala had never bitten or scratched anyone, and that he had impeccable litterbox habits. For ten years he slept at the foot of his owners' bed, yet they abandoned him. He would make a great companion for anyone seeking an affectionate yet low-maintenance cat. Nala is 10 years old. He is neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and feline leukemia (negative), microchipped, and will come with all his medical papers. He is being fostered in the Bronx.
Kain, a friendly orange male, was abandoned at the New York City ACC in a carrier that was taped together. The front of the carrier did not have a door, just a piece of styrofoam attached with duct tape. We rescued him the day he was going to be euthanized, thanks to the pleas of volunteers who loved to play with him. In the video, you can see him learning how to give a high five in response to treats - Kain is nothing if not treat-motivated! Kain is around four years old and has been neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and feline leukemia (negative), and microchipped. He will come with all his medical papers. We are a registered nonprofit. An adoption application is required and references will be checked. Adoption fee is $100.
Titan is a gentle and affectionate young male cat who followed people home a couple of months ago and then stayed meowing by the door until they let him in. Unfortunately, his finders could not keep him. but they said he was a remarkably pleasant and polite cat, who didnât scratch anything and never had an accident. They would have kept him, but they already had seven cats of their own. Titan was relaxed and respectful with all the cats, and the other cats liked him from the beginning. At the ACC, Titan was given the highest possible behavior rating. Every time the staff or volunteers would come by his cage, he would roll over to beg for attention. We rescued him on the day he was going to be euthanized at the overcrowded city shelter. Titan is around two to three years old, with beautiful pale peach coloring. He has been neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and feline leukemia (negative for both), and micro chipped. We are a registered nonprofit located in the Bronx. Titan will come with all his medical papers. We require an adoption agreement and will check references. His adoption fee is 100 dollars.
Sandy is barely out of kittenhood, yet he was almost killed at the New York City ACC. We rescued him on the day he was going to be euthanized. He is quite a character. In appearance he is small, delicate and very pretty, a buff/orange tabby with perfect marbled markings. He has the personality of a much larger cat and somehow manages to be both adorable and exasperating at the same time. He plays exuberantly, because he is still full of kitten energy. He is extremely friendly, to humans and to other cats, and will follow his humans everywhere, leaping onto laps or to the back of chairs where he can rub himself against a personâs head. He is very good with his litter box. Sandy can keep himself amused for hours with a jingle ball, playing soccer with himself or with other cats. Although he likes children, he might not be a good fit for a house with small children because he can nip when he gets over excited, He really is a funny little cat. When you tell him, âNo, Sandy, no nipping!â he looks up at you with big innocent eyes and meows as if to say âNo? Why not?â Then he rubs himself against you to show that he forgives you for your human obtuseness, and of course you melt over him. He really is endearing, especially when he is conducting an animated meow conversation with you. Sandy is around ten months old. He has been neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and feline leukemia (negative for both), microchipped ,and will come with all his medical papers. He is currently being fostered in Westchester. We are a registered nonprofit. We require an adoption application (references will be checked) and a $100 adoption fee.
Until this June, Rubio was a large and happy family cat who played with his owner's children and grandchildren. Then somebody in the family developed allergies, and he was dumped at the New York City ACC. We rescued him on the day he was going to be euthanized, but had to board him for a couple of months. Rubio truly suffered. We have never seen a cat so unhappy in a cage. For weeks he sulked and snarled, totally unlike the friendly cat his previous family had described in his surrender notes. Some cats just do not adjust to cages, and Rubio was one of them. When we finally found him a foster, the transformation was miraculous. Out of a cage and in a home, surrounded by love, Rubio became a different cat. "He has a great personality, and once he's warmed up to you, he's just the sweetest cat on the planet," his foster mother told us. He loves head and back rubs, and follows his foster mother everywhere. He even lived amicably with a kitten for a few weeks. Rubio badly needs a home of his own. He is young, about 2 years old, neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and FeLV, and microchipped. He is being fostered in Brooklyn.

Prince is one of those cats who actually live up to their name, for he has a regal presence. He is an extremely handsome peaches-and-cream tabby who has lived happily with children, other cats and even a small dog, a confident and affectionate cat who likes to follow people around, occasionally commenting on what they are doing. He has excellent litterbox manners. Prince would make the perfect family cat. He is around five years old, neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and feline leukemia (negative), and microchipped.

Horus is a young and affable cat, with an imperial touch about him. He likes people, but he also likes things his way. He is very friendly and actively seeks attention, but will expect his human servant to follow his bidding. When we first rescued him from the New York City ACC, Horus was very sick and had to go to the vet, where he soon recovered. He became good friends with the vet and the vet techs, as long as they were not taking liberties with his person. Because when they did, he would give them the stink eye and proceed to raise holy hell. The vet summed him up nicely: âThis cat is a real character.â Horus is a brown and white tabby, with interestingly tufted ears. He is around two years old and has been neutered, vaccinated, tested for FIV and feline leukemia (negative), and microchipped. He is being boarded in the Bronx. We are a registered nonprofit. We require an adoption application, references, and a home visit. The adoption fee is 100 dollars, and Horus will come with all his medical records.
Nick is our miracle cat. He was hit by a car and taken to the New York City ACC, where he ended up on the euthanasia list before we rescued him the day before Thanksgiving. Miraculously, he recovered completely, without needing any surgery. But he is slightly special needs, because he tested positive for FIV. Nick is a completely healthy young cat now, active and curious. Towards people he is very affectionate, but he does not care for his own kind at all and really needs to be an only cat. He is a character. He can be sweet and cuddly one minute, then feisty and stubborn. His foster mother says this about him: "Nick is a cat that loves his time - play time, nap time, and most importantly dinner time. If you are looking for a cat with tons of character, who will greet you at the door and is very affectionate, look no further. Most of the day, Nick can be found napping by your side or playing with his favorite ?stuffed mice. He is really a friendly, sweet cat." Nick is around two years old, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He is negative for feline leukemia. He is being fostered in New Haven, CT.
