Sylvester & Tweety Need Your Help

This breaks our hearts and we are trying to do all we can to help Sylvester and Tweety.  These two sweet brothers are in need of a new home because their owner is moving and cannot take them with her. 

Tweety

Sylvester

They are around 9 years old and in great health. They have claws but have never wreaked anything.  They use a litter box well and have never had an accident. They are also great with dogs and children.  

If you would like to come to the rescue and open your heart and home to them, please contact us at:  (E) btowncitycats@gmail.com or (P) 609-324-3896.

Meet Marilyn...

Marilyn was found dirty and hungry by the kind folks at one of the doctors offices on Farnsworth Ave who reached out to us for help last week.




She has since shown herself to be a very calm kitty, even under duress.  In fact, during the trapping process, she didn't claw, hiss, or try to bite at all.  Since she's been fostered, we've found out that, just like her namesake, Marilyn is very ladylike. She's also extremely sweet and loves being petted.  She's very petite and the vet estimates she's anywhere from 2-5 years old.  

So far she also seems to be getting along with the other cats in her foster home.  Marilyn is now spayed and fully vaccinated and ready for a good home.  If you or anyone you know would like to be the one to give it to her, please contact us at:  (E) btowncitycats@gmail.com or (P) 609-324-3896.

WANTED: Happy Endings for all!

Check out these three cats we have available for adoption right now, each of which has a unique story...

SNOWBALL

Snowball was rescued by a woman in town who reached out to us for help. When we found her she had a damaged right eye, infected left eye, infected gums and ears and a large cyst under her left eye. After her "makeover" by our wonderful vet, she's now healthy and ready for her forever home. Her right eye is permanently sutured closed, but that hasn't stopped her from being extremely affectionate and loving. The vet estimates she is about 5-7 years old. Will you be the one to give this little fighter the loving home she desperately wants?
SAM

The vet estimates Sam to be approximately six months old but we think she maybe even younger than that. She was first thought to be feral but we've since come to find out she's very sweet and friendly and would make the perfect addition to someone's home. Please let us know if you're interested in adopting her.
SAMMIE
Sammie is a six-year-old gray, female whose owner sadly passed away recently and now she is in desperate need of a new, loving forever home. Will you be the one to make her feel safe and loved again?

If you or someone you know is interested in giving one of them the loving, forever home they deserve, please contact us at (E) btowncitycats@gmail.com or (P) 609-324-3896

Desperately Seeking Forever Homes!

UPDATE:  Ginger has finally found the loving, forever home she was looking for.  Sadly, poor Fred is still looking for the same.  What this slightly nervous, little guy really needs is a calm, understanding environment to help soothe his nerves after all he's been through this past year.

PREVIOUSLY:

Meet Fred & Ginger, this loving brother/sister duo. Both were originally adopted as eight week old kittens from Bordentown City Cats several years ago, but then in a sad twist of fate, the living arrangements in their home changed, making it impossible for their family to keep them and they were surrendered back to BCC earlier this year.

Fred & Ginger now - adapted, loving and social
We tried our best to find them a new home together, but it's much harder to find someone looking to adopt two cats so now we are willing to separate them if need be.  Luckily, they have both adjusted well to living apart in foster homes.  But now it's time to find Fred and Ginger the forever homes they deserve!


Freddie

Although, they are approximately two-years old now, they still very much acts like kittens.  Their favorite activities are chasing balls around the house.  They also got along very well with the family dog in one of their previous homes and would engage in lively games of tag. Both have been spayed/neutered and are up-to-date on shots.  

If you or someone you know is interested in giving Freddie or Ginger the loving homes they deserve, please contact us at: (E) btowncitycats@gmail.com or (P) 609-324-3896.  

ADOPTED: Another BCC Success Story!

UPDATE:  Fingers crossed, but after numerous different attempts, we think we may have finally found Jellybean the nice, quiet home that is perfectly suited for him!


PREVIOUSLY:
Some of you might remember Little Ricky as Jellybean, the emaciated little boy we rescued off Walnut Street a few months ago.  He was warming up nicely to the family of one of our volunteers, showing a hearty appetite and putting on weight.  Alas, we thought he had found the happy ending he deserved. 

Sadly, it turns out he is not comfortable around other cats.  The friction was impacting his health and we had to relocate him to the home of another volunteer where there are no other animals and things are much calmer...and guess what?  He's doing fantastic!  He is even more loving and desiring of affection than before.


What this means is we are looking for a quiet, permanent home for him with no other animals, perhaps a senior or a single person.  So, if you or someone you know fits this bill and is interested in adopting Little Ricky, please contact us at:  (E) btowncitycats@gmail.com or (P) 609-324-3896.

Let's give him the happy ending he deserves!

ADOPTED! Another BCC Success Story!

UPDATE:  We are happy to report that handsome Hemingway had great success at this year's National Adoption Weekend at PetSmart and he is now resting comfortably in his new home with his new parents who are just over the moon about him!  Thank you Sonya & Dustin!!


PREVIOUSLY:  Adorable Hemingway was found lonely and crying for attention down at Bordentown Beach roughly two months ago. It was clear from the onset that he was not a feral cat as he quickly started crying for affection when our volunteers stopped by to handle daily feedings.

Sadly, our gut tells us he was abandoned down there.

We were able to easily scoop him up and get him to the vet and he has been neutered and given a clean bill of health. The vet believes he is between 1 1/2 - 2 years old so he still has a long life ahead of him.

He is already fitting in nicely and getting along great with the other cats at his foster home. All this cute boy wants is to be loved! And the reason we named him Hemingway? He's a very special boy. Check out his namesake: http://www.hemingwayhome.com/cats/

If you or someone you know is interested in adopting Hemingway, please contact us at: (E) btowncitycats@gmail.com or (P) 609-324-3896.

Our first kittens of the year!

Usually we get inundated with kittens in the summer, but little Bert and Alice are the first we've rescued all season, which is hopefully a good sign that our TNR efforts in Bordentown City are working to keep the cat population down.




Bert (black) and Alice (tabby) were rescued from Prince St about a month ago and are believed to be about 13-14 weeks old now.  They are fixed, up-to-date on shots and very sweet and friendly.  If you or someone you know are interested in adopting them, please contact us at:  (E) btowncitycats@gmail.com or (P) 609-324-3896.
