We’re not kitten around this week — with so many adorable kitties available for adoption, it’s easier now than ever to find your new best friend, so head down to your local shelter/rescue and scoop up a cat on Long Island this weekend!
Available for adoption at the Town of Smithtown Animal Shelter
Chips, also affectionately known as One-Eyed Jack, is a one-and-a-half-year-old Male Domestic Shorthair Mix. It’s hard to find a cat who is more outgoing, loving, and friendly than Chips! Chips had severe respiratory problems as a kitten, and this caused him to lose one eye and have significant scarring in the other. He will likely continue to suffer from chronic respiratory issues, and a potential home will need to help manage that when caring for him. This little guy does not let his health problems get in his way, and he remains a bright light in the face of adversity. Chips came from a home where he lived with children and other pets, so he will be a perfect fit for any home!
For more information about adopting Chips, please call 631-360-7575 today for more information today!
Available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America
**Reminder** North Shore Animal League America is waiving all feline adoption fees (for cats & kittens) for approved adopters continuing through the end of the month.
When Mr. Goodbar (Adoption #NCR6156) arrived at Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center, he wanted to make it clear that humans are his top priority! This one-year-old southern stunner just can’t get enough attention from visitors and is first in line for treats and ear rubs. You could make his life complete by offering him the chance to be adored on demand by your family, and with his super sweet purrsonality, you’ll find he’s a hard-to-resist treat!
Four-year-old Mia Hamm (Adoption #LA0909) is a champion heart-stealer! This Louisiana rescue is playing offense as she greets her fans with an open heart, ready for great adventures ahead with a new team. Want to share the glory of scoring a winning goal for your family? Recruit Mia Hamm as your teammate and you’ll be celebrating a lifetime of victories together!
Seven-year-old Di Melo (Adoption #BF3681) recently lost his home and is looking for a committed family. This wonderful tabby was delivered to safety by rescuers a few months ago, but he’ll never let on he’s had a moment of despair in his life. He’s a day-brightener! Although his time on the streets has left him FIV+ he’s enjoying a peaceful room in Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center with equally peaceful roommates. Any family would be very lucky to call him theirs; just offer him an ear rub and you’ll see why we think he’s a fabulous choice for your home!
**Double Adoption** Besties Bert (Adoption #BF3605) and Ernie (Adoption #BF3606) have hit a fork in the road. These super-bonded 1-year-old brothers recently lost their first home, but as long as they have each other, they’re prepared for whatever the future has in store. A little cat experience, a touch of patience, and a heart open to new beginnings is all Bert and Ernie need to believe you might be the final hero in their rescue story. Bert has already shed his trepidation and is showing his shyer brother how to be brave as well. You’ll find the duo enjoying naps by windows when not exploring their sunny room in Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center. A family with children six years and older is going to appreciate how very special being loved by these two characters can be!
**Senior Alert** Looking for a friendly lady to make herself at home in your heart? We have the feline for you. When her owner needed a safe place for Carnita (Adoption #BF3796) to land, Animal League America welcomed her with the promise of a happy, new beginning on the horizon. This sensational ten-year-old is keeping up with the fun, young ones in her room and loves to admire playgroups from high above on her perch. Her favorite pastime is receiving ear rubs from friends in exchange for a treat. NSALA is assuring Carnita her future will get even better once she’s discovered by her next family and offered the sunny, peaceful retirement she deserves. NSALA vets discovered Carnita has hyperthyroidism, but they have a treatment plan that will be covered through their Pet Health Centers so there is nothing to keep you from bringing Carnita home today!
When we say there’s something extra special about Harper (Adoption #NCI2216) we mean more than just the extra toes on her paws! This sweet, polydactyl two-year-old is delightful as she explores her new setting, but her greatest quality is her ability to make fast friends with every purrson she meets. Although she’s not a fan of other pets, she’s a huge mood-lifter for us humans, especially the ones offering her some peace and quiet. Families with children (age six and above) will get a real kick out of her supersized paws and her subtle personality. Want to make Harper your number one fan? Offer her treats and she’ll offer you, her heart; she’ll be taking that ride home with you in no time!
Ally (Adoption #BF2504) recently lost her home and came back to NSALA for help finding a new one. Ally falls in love easily with new friends and allows cuddles at hello. This two-year-old has an open mind and heart for whatever awaits ahead and we’re promising the best is coming her way. Hurry. You’re not going to want to miss the chance to be the object of Ally’s affection!
