Looking for something to celebrate? June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month, which means there’s no better time to open your heart and home to an adorable, furry friend in need. By adopting a shelter cat, not only do you gain a loving and playful companion, but you also give a second chance to a deserving kitty. 

Sweat Tea
Sweat Tea

More of a dog person? Sweet Tea is this week’s Town of Smithtown Animal Shelter’s Pet of the Week! This poor baby was found wandering busy roads trying desperately to get into passing cars.  This loving young girl (approximately 1-2 years old) had signs of having had a recent litter and was a little underweight.  Sweet Tea is an energetic and social dog that seems to love anyone that will show her attention. She is a little unsure of herself in new surroundings, but she responds well to training.  This lovely lady is showing a healthy interest in other dogs but can be overwhelming with them. Sweat Tea would thrive with a loving, patient adopter. 

For more information about adopting Sweat Tea, call 631-360-7575.

And now for some fabulous felines…

June Is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month. Here Are Cute Cats Available on Long Island

Available for adoption through Tender Loving Cats

Mia
Mia

Momma Mia, look at this cutie!  Mia is truly a one-in-a-million cat. She is the sweetest girl who loves being pet and getting all your attention. She’ll happily roll over to give you her belly while she makes biscuits in the air. Mia is happy to chatter on about her day as long as there’s an ear to listen. It’s a mystery as to why anyone would abandon such a beautiful and sweet little girl but it doesn’t matter because she’s 100% ready to find her furever home. Her easy-going personality would make her a good fit for almost every home!

Available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America

Elsie and Evan
Elsie and Evan

**Double Adoption** Local 1-year-old rescues Elsie (Adoption #BF4151) and Evan (Adoption #BF4152) complete each other. You’ll find two is better than one when it comes to this sibling duo. Formally shy, Elsie is now taking the lead in play groups while her brother is never far behind. An experienced family (with kids over 8 years old) will have no trouble winning these two over with playtime and treats. After settling into their first real home, they’ll grow excited to learn all about family life from their favorite expert: you!  

Rhodes and Delphi
Rhodes and Delphi

**Double Adoption** A local rescuer brought 1-year-olds Rhodes (Adoption #BF4165) and Delphi (Adoption #BF4166) to our attention, in need of some TLC to prepare them for living with humans. Time in a quiet, consistent space helped so we’ve tucked them into a sunny room in Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center to finish their education under the tutelage of some very devoted feline mentors. Success in their eventual home will come from adults with experience nurturing fearful friends (any children over twelve, please) who are equipped to provide a predictable environment where these two can relax for the rest of their lives. 

Chanel and Dior
Chanel and Dior

**Double Adoption** The only thing we like more than celebrating our cats’ birthdays is celebrating their adoption days. For now, Animal League America is thrilled to shower shy 1-year-olds Chanel (Adoption #H211594) and Dior (Adoption #H211595) with treats and toys with a party surrounded by fur friends and humans they’ve grown to trust. Have experience with nurturing shyness away from feline friends? You’d be their ultimate hero if you could provide them a consistent home (one with kids over twelve) and time to settle into a place in all your family’s hearts. 

Peanut
Peanut

While Peanut (Adoption #H211682) is undeniably an adorable, fun-loving cat, he’s no ordinary one. In fact, he’s a miracle of scientific research and medical interventions. Not long ago, a diagnosis of his illness would have led to dire circumstances, but the veterinary heroes in Animal League America’s Pet Health Centers put everything they have into saving his life. Peanut loves to play and explore, to gaze out windows and watch the birds, and to head butt humans enthusiastically then wait for kisses on his head in return. A lucky family is going to be filled with inspiration as they celebrate all the little things that make Peanut’s heart fill up with an abundance of joy and gratitude. 

Bastet and Heru
Bastet and Heru

**Double Adoption** Although locally rescued 9-month-olds Bastet (Adoption #H212116) and Heru (Adoption #H212117) now safely cuddle together in a beautiful room at Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center, they didn’t always feel so secure around humans. This adorable set of tabbies needed our help conquering their fears. If you’ve had cats before, you know how time and patience can help you all successfully blend into a loving relationship. A consistent household (with kids over 12-years-old) that can make them feel safe is all that’s required to make Bastet and Heru feel like welcomed members of the family.  

Mixie and Mush Mush
Mixie and Mush Mush

**Double Adoption** Mixie (Adoption #CO0022) and Mush Mush (Adoption #CO0023) have been recently welcomed into Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center. Although they are bonded 9-month-old siblings, their responses to this new safe setting couldn’t be more different. While Mixie is front and center in every playgroup with cats and humans alike, Mush Mush is spectating from the sidelines in a comfy bed, but always welcomes a greeting from a nearby friend. A family (any children over age 8, please) will be just what Mush Mush needs to acclimate to his new lifestyle. Their different purrsonalities balance them out, making them a super match for each other—and you! 

Amewlia Earhart
Amewlia Earhart

One-year-old momma Amewlia Earhart (Adoption #T106419) had weathered many a storm before Animal League America’s rescue partners in Tennessee offered her a new beginning. First stop was a safe place to deliver her babies in their nursery. While being doted upon by vets, she needed their support and comfort as she underwent surgery to remove her right eye, thus removing pain from her life. She is also FIV+, a remnant from the time she’d been left to survive outdoors. Amewlia has been through a lot and the turmoil she experienced has left her feeling uncomfortable around other felines.  But this tiny cat has a big heart when it comes to humans, and she never runs out of pleasant conversation with the humans she considers her heroes. 

Ryder
Ryder

Two-year-old Ryder (Adoption #H212184) didn’t have an easy ride to get herself where she is today. She depended upon the kindness of strangers who helped end the tumultuous life she’d known living outside and begin the next beautiful chapter. This beautiful momma was able to care for her kittens in the safety of Animal League America’s nursery and experienced firsthand the hopefulness of trusting the humans caring for her. Ryder doesn’t want to spend anymore of her life fending off other cats; she’d prefer to bask in the warm glow of your quiet, loving home.  

Monty and Chloe
Monty and Chloe

**Double Adoption** Four-year-old Monty (Adoption #BF4348) and 3-year-old Chloe (Adoption #BF4349) lost their beloved owner recently and needed help securing a safe future. It doesn’t take long to realize how loved they’d been in their first home, and how much love they have left in their hearts for their next one. While they may feel a bit overwhelmed by this new experience, they’re a charming pair who are ready to complete your family.

Belle and Cleo
Belle and Cleo

**Double Adoption** Beautiful 3-year-old sisters Belle (Adoption #BF4351) and Cleo (Adoption #BF4352) shared a life together, but recently came to Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center when they lost their home. Now they’re sharing new experiences as they await discovery by a loving family willing to offer them a second chance. Belle is timid but supportive of her beloved Cleo who finds the changes she’s endured overwhelming at times. Together they are balancing each other with love and cuddles as they figure things out, but a peaceful life back in a loving home is all they hope for, and so easy for you to provide.
