Adopt One — Or Even Two — Pet Cats on Long Island

This week’s lineup is filled with double-adoption requests. While this may sound like a big ask, adopting a bonded pair is just as easy (if not easier) than adopting a solo pet. Bonded animals tend to thrive off one another, and the best part: adopting two saves four; you save the ones you adopt while making space for two more at the shelter/rescue. So don’t wait, adopt your purrfect pair today!

Available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America


**Senior Alert** When 16-year-old Courage (Adoption #R106903) lost the only home he’d ever known, he was left bereft of what he’d lost and where he’d go next. The Animal League America family embraced this gentle soul with assurances he would be safe and loved while we searched for a fresh start. Their vets provided him with a thorough health check which uncovered chronic renal disease and irritable bowel disease, so a plan has been put in place to maximize his health while minimizing the cost (through NSALA Pet Health Centers) for his new family. Despite the shock of losing everything he’s known and loved, Courage has proven to be quite courageous as he navigates a whole new life, and NSALA is here to support him until his forever family takes their place. Because he has spent his entire life as an only pet, they’ve provided him a quiet space to himself which has healed his broken heart. He’s prepared to share it again with someone as special as you!

William and Stan

**Double Adoption** Behind every shy kitty is a best friend encouraging him to join in the fun. That’s exactly what you’ll find when you meet Stan (Adoption #FTF07) and William (Adoption #FTF06). These 1 ½-year-old bonded buddies were discovered locally by a good Samaritan who knew Animal League America would lead them to a much safer life than the one they left behind. After spending time together in a sunny, quiet room, William emerged as an outgoing companion full of love and gratitude for the improvement to their circumstances. Although Stan is much shyer than William, he’s learned so much from observing relationships with humans and is willing to give us a try too! A home with experienced adults and older children will ensure a very content future for two very deserving boys.

Little Boy

**Senior Alert** Although Little Boy (Adoption #H210438) isn’t all that little, he’s still in need of some nurturing. He arrived with his feline siblings recently when they lost their lifelong home due to the passing of their beloved human. NSALA provided them all a room to stay together with comfy beds and a sunny window which Little Boy is particularly fond of. He is the only FIV+ member of his family and lives harmoniously with the others. Offer to brush him, and you’ll open up a whole new dimension to your relationship! Little Boy is looking for a home (with children age eight and older) and a confident feline roommate to help ease him back into a home as a bonus! If you’ve had cats before, you’ll know that a peaceful, predictable place for this 12-year-old to retire to is all he needs to complete his journey!

Mark Sloan and Derek Shepard

**Double Adoption** One-year-olds Mark Sloan (Adoption #H210461) and Derek Shepherd (Adoption #H210462) are a shy pair of bonded brothers ready to support each other through all the changes life has ahead for them, just as they have been side by side through the rough times of living on the local streets. Now safe in Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center, you’ll find Mark wanting to be center of attention, while Derek is satisfied to be his wingman.  A quiet home with children over ten-year-old and experienced adults will have them pouncing around your living room in no time.

Honshu and Hokkaido

**Double Adoption**  Three-month-old Honshu (Adoption #H211098) and Hokkaido (Adoption #H211099) forged a tight bond when they struggled to survive on their own in the great outdoors this summer. Now safely nestled in a comfy bed together, they’re leaning on each other to comprehend this new life afforded them in the safety of Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center. Although their experience with humans was limited, they’re quickly learning just how delightful it is to have meals served in a warm bed. If you have a peaceful home with children older than ten who can help them settle into their new life, they’ll know a safe home at last!


If you’re in search of an inspiring companion, look no further than Lenape (Adoption #BF3872)! This 5-year-old black beauty is more than just a handsome face; he’s a true survivor! Despite his humble beginnings on Long Island, he’s seizing this moment to captivate everyone he encounters, letting them know how lucky he feels to be treated to the love and warmth of his Animal League America family. Wait ‘til he finds out the best is yet to come when he’s scooped up by a very lucky family of his own and welcomed into his first real home. You’re going to be glad you have someone so eager to thank you by your side furever more!

Sam and Dean

**Double Adoption** After being scooped up by a local hero and delivered to safety, Sam (Adoption #BF3880) and Dean (Adoption #BF3881) have taken a vow to stay true to each other no matter what. Little do these seven-month-old besties understand the past is far behind them and the future holds the key to their happiness—being discovered by their true family. Want to make a lifetime of memories with two sweet boys? All you need is a quiet home, a gentle hand for soothing ear rubs, and you’ll be the newest member of this friendship clowder!

You can visit any one of these adorable adoptables at Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center or contact DoritS@animalleague.org to learn more about the adoption process today!

Available for adoption at the Town of Smithtown Animal Shelter

Oreo, Neo, and Misty

These three are a set of siblings who are all 1 ½ year-old Domestic Shorthair Mixes. Neo (grey tabby) is Male, while Oreo (black and white) and Misty (grey and white) are Female. They sadly lost their home when their owner had to move. Staff and volunteers would love to see these mushes be adopted together, but they are not bonded siblings and can be adopted separately. The trio can be shy at first, but with time and patience, they will come out of their shells and let their personalities shine. Oreo, Neo, and Misty would do well in a quiet environment, and could live in a home with other cats.

If you are interested in meeting these cuties, please call 631-360-7575.

Available for adoption through Alleykatz

Salt and Pepper

**Double Adoption** Salt (female) and Pepper (male) go hand-in-hand, just like their spicy counterparts. These 5-month-old bonded siblings get along well with other kittens and cats but not so much with dogs. They are looking for a home with children 10 and up.


**Double Adoption** Mama and Kiwi area actually mommy and daughter! Momma is a young mom at just a year-old, and Kiwi is only 4 months. These two are always playing and would love a family with no children or dogs in the house.


Four-month-old kitten, Ghost, is still trying to navigate his way through life, and let’s give him credit, at only 4 months he hasn’t had much time to figure things out. Ghost needs a patient adopter to help him come out of his shell.

Sandy and Sally

**Double Adoption** Sandy and Sally are all the rage! These sweet 7-month-old sisters love people and other cats. They’re looking for a home with no dogs and older children.


Munson is a 5-6-month-old kitten who is rather mellow and extremely sweet. He looooves to sleep with his person and would thrive with another mellow kitten his age or as an only cat.  If you’re in the market for a snuggler, Munson is your man.
