The Young Man and the Sea: Hemingway Needs a Home!

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.

DESPERATELY WANTED: Loving, Forever Home for Fred & Ginger



DESPERATELY WANTED:  A loving, forever home for these two very adorable, indoor, brother and sister cats.  They were originally adopted as eight week old kittens from Bordentown City Cats, but sadly, the living arrangements in their home changed, making it impossible for their family to keep them and they were recently surrendered back to BCC.

Fred & Ginger now - adapted, loving and social
They are approximately two-years old now but still very much act like kittens. The male cat – Freddie - has black and white markings and the female cat – Ginger - has calico type markings.  Freddie is protective of Ginger and is always interested in what she is doing. They love to play together and wash each other after eating.

Freddie

It breaks our heart to separate them now so we are seeking a loving, forever home for both of them together. 

Their favorite activity is chasing balls around the house.  They also got along very well with the family dog in their previous home and would engage in lively games of tag. 

Both have good appetites and love tuna canned cat food with dry food as a snack.  They both have been spayed/neutered and are up-to-date on shots.  

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