Arnold is about 2-to-3 years old and would prefer to find a forever home without other pets.
Purrfectly named, Bubble Wrap and Stamp are lovely sisters that were found as stray kittens outside a post office. They are 8 months old, rambunctious, and fun. These two can play together for hours and would prefer to be homed together. Bubble Wrap is a little shy and Stamp is outgoing, which makes them double the trouble and double the fun!

Meet Mocha. This little (and by little we mean petite) 5-year-old sweetheart hasn’t had the best luck. First Mocha was dumped outside a vet’s office and brought to Pets4Luv in 2016, and in 2018 she was adopted, but returned because the couple that adopted her had a baby (someone forgot to tell them babies love cats!). So, Mocha now waits for her forever family. She gets along well with other cats and the dog in her foster home. She is very human affectionate. If you’re looking for a sweet cat to fill your heart with love, please contact Dave at [email protected] or 516-832-8200.
Available for adoption through All About Spay Neuter:

Pom Pom (adoption #D48272) has come a long way from the fearful older kitten he was when he first arrived at NSALA. Surrounded by love, this 3-year-old can be found head-butting his favorite humans. Pom Pom has been clicker trained and loves to show off how smart he is. While he is being treated for Irritable Bowel Disease with a special diet, he simply gobbles up his meds in meatballs. His ideal home is one where he’d be the only pet with cat-experienced adults and children 16 and up in age. Because he is a part of NSALA’s Sponsor Program, there is no cost for his food or medical needs (for life) through their fully accredited Medical Center in Port Washington. All Pom Pom needs to complete his journey is you!
Perry’s (adoption #MA4391) life was in grave danger when NSALA first met him late last year. After their medical team repaired his body, the foster care team found him a home to heal his spirit. They are now determined to help this 11-month-old learn to trust the world. Spend a little time with Perry at Bianca’s Furry Friends Pet Adoption Center in Port Washington and you’ll discover a survivor ready to live life as a cherished pet. His ideal home is one with no dogs, respectful cats, and children 6+ in age who can nurture him and build trust as he becomes part of your family.
Sashimi (adoption #H210103) is a quiet, handsome 7-month old tuxedo kitten who survived the perils of outdoor living and is ready to be part of a warm, nurturing life in your home. Shy Sashimi will benefit from the companionship of another confident cat in the household.
Rescued locally this fall, Saki (adoption #H210104) has needed some reassurance that he’s safe and sound in his little bed at NSALA’s Adoption Center. This shy, 7-month-old fella finds comfort in the company of confident cats who show him how to trust the humans who care for them. He’s learned so much that he is already sharing headbutts with visitors! If you have a cat at home looking to mentor an adorable sidekick, Saki is ready to begin his second chance with you.
