**Double Adoption** This summer, Agate (Adoption #H211558) and Ripple (Adoption #H211559) experienced their first big break when they were rescued. Needing a boost to their confidence, these tender 8-month-old tabbies sorted out their feelings about humans and worked hard to prepare for their next adventure: finding their furever family. Now all they need to complete their rescue story is a cat-experienced home (with kids over age 10, please) ready to help them settle into life as beloved family pets.
**Double Adoption** When 8-month-old kittens Keno (Adoption #H211574) and her best friend Blackjack (Adoption #H211575) first arrived this summer, they were down on their luck having survived the hot and treacherous local streets. Time has been a wonderful aide for them, and they’re ready to bet the house you ‘re the human they’ve been seeking. Roll the dice and go all in for these formerly shy baby tuxedos. A family (with children over age 8) will discover how a little tenderness will yield a full house of love. If you head home with Keno and Blackjack, you’ll win the kitty jackpot!
**Double Adoption** Nine-month-olds Nikkie (Adoption #H211599) and Susie (Adoption #H211600) were given the opportunity of a lifetime when their rescuer took them into her home to prepare them for adoption before they were invited to Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center. While Nikkie is still nervous at times, having her more confident sister Susie by her side to guide her in new situations is all she needs to grow more comfortable. A loving, quiet home (with children over age 6) will do wonders in assuring these terrific tuxedos that they’re safe, secure, and beloved members of the family.
Animal League America was called in to help 5-year-old Apollo (Adoption #BF4433) find a safer alternative to the life he’d been living in a lumber yard. Time outdoors left him FIV+ and feeling a bit worn down, but their devoted vets put him back on the path to good health. He’s now overjoyed he gets toys to play with, a comfy bed for napping, and all the catnip he can handle. All that’s missing is an uncomplicated future with someone devoted to erasing any sad memories of his past. Are you the adopter ready to step up and be Apollo’s hero?
**Double Adoption** After a long journey from Puerto Rico, best friends Tammy (Adoption #PR00140) (3 years old) and Kathy (Adoption #PR00147) (1 year old) continue to support each other through every step of way in the search to find a family to call their own. You’re likely to find them snuggled together in the sunny spots of their room in Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center, dreaming of the bright future that awaits. Their loyalty to each other is inspiring. If you’re looking for a pair of ladies fill your heart and home, these besties are hoping you’ll join their friendship circle!
We expected 7-year-old Snowie (Adoption #H207320) to need a helping hand when she arrived, having lost the only home she’d ever known. Her plucky disposition has enchanted all of her new human friends interacting with her at Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center, and we just can’t wait to see where this happy lady lands next. It’s likely she’s never shared a home with a cat before, so a quiet home with older kids where she can live as the only pet would be ideal for her. Want to be the lucky recipient of endless head butts from one elegant lady? Snowie knows how to make a lasting impression!

Meet Cleopatra! Born September 2016, this is one gorgeous cat! Described as calm and affectionate, Cleopatra loves chin, cheek and ear scratches and likes to be close to her person. When she wants to play, she likes to go after wand toys and loves catnip filled toys and cardboard scratchers, but there’s nothing like a soft comfy bed to nap in if you ask her. Cleopatra is happier being a single cat but a calm canine friend with proper introduction would be fine.

**Senior Alert, Double Adoption and Special Request** When Lend-a-Paw first received Lola and Juno, they had been kept in an attic for their entire, precious lives. Lola’s nails were severely curled into her paw pads, which made it painful for her to walk. Juno was severely skinny and malnourished and during her vet visit, it was discovered that Juno had hypothyroidism. These two 12-year-old cats need a calm environment to live in and someone to show them what love really is. They don’t mind being pet, however they are delicate.
Rafi is an innocent little cat who is about 1 year old. He was very shy at first but has really come out of his shell thanks to his amazing foster family. He is great with kids and other cats.
**Double Adoption** Miami and Memphis’ mom was found one day and brought inside and later gave birth to them. These two kittens love to snuggle and cuddle with each other, and they love to play with their toys!
When Shadow was first rescued, he was very scared, but now he is very mushy and loves to run around and play with his siblings. Shadow has partial vision loss in one eye but that doesn’t hold him back in the slightest! This loveable, sweet kitten is about 6 months old and ready to head home with you today!
Noche was found as a stray in NYC and was on the euthanasia list. He’s only a puppy, at 65 pounds, and a gigantic mushball! He loves to run around and play with his other foster dog so it’s suggested that he be adopted to a family with another dog. He will require basic training as he is still a puppy. A family with kids over 10 is suggested as he’s a puppy that loves to play and may knock little ones down by accident. He deserves to be loved and adopted!
For more information about adopting any of Lend-a-Paws lovies, email [email protected] or contact 516-405-0065 via call or text.
