Meet Midnight, Our Newest Rescue!

Meet Midnight, our newest rescue.  He came to us through a sad situation - his previous owners are moving into community living for the disabled and had to surrender all five of their cats so we agreed to pitch in with other area rescue groups to find them all new homes.

Midnight being checked out at the vet this week.



Don’t let the size of this big boy fool you!  He is very sweet and mellow, loves to cuddle and gets along well with everyone.   He is an all black male, approximately 6-7 years old, neutered, vaccinated, declawed and house-trained.  

He still has a lot of life ahead of him so if you or someone you know is interested in giving him a new forever home, please contact us at:  (E) btowncitycats@gmail.com or (P) 609-324-3896.

WANTED: Forever Homes For Randy & Sandy

Meet Randy (orange) and his sister Sandy...


These two 8-month old siblings were recently rescued from Bordentown Township. Some very caring residents saw to it that they were fixed and fully vaccinated but they have too many pets of their own to take on this adorable duo so we stepped in. They're still practically babies so they'd make a great addition to any home. If you or someone you know is interested in adopting one or both of them, please contact us at: (E) btowncitycats@gmail.com or (P) 609-324-3896

We Love Happy Endings!

We love to hear from people who have adopted from us, especially when they relay happy endings such as this...

Lovey's name is Callie now.  She is wonderful and as you can see, is quite at home with me now - I love her! 
Two summers ago, she had 4 babies in my back yard. I fed her so she didn't have to hunt for food and that was that!! You guys caught the kittens and found homes. You caught Callie, spayed her, gave her some shots and brought her back to my back yard. She followed me everywhere and sat with me as I planted flowers. Who could resist? I never had a cat, only dogs. And my Scottie Megan had died 6 months earlier. So, it was meant to be. She makes me happy.

ADOPTED!! The Happy Ending We've Been Waiting for...

UPDATE: We could not be happier to announce that Freddie has finally found a loving, new forever home after nearly a year in BCC foster care.  This sweet fella was surrendered back to us with his sister last December.  He was shy and timid, but very sweet, and for reasons that still baffle us, had a hard finding someone interested in adopting him.  Alas, that family came along right before the holidays and gave him the best present he could ask for!  All's well that ends well. 


PREVIOUSLY...

Dear Santa:
I only have one wish for Christmas this year...to find a forever home and a family to call my own. (Well, I guess that's two wishes but you know what I mean.)

I've been particularly lonely since my sister Ginger found her own forever home a few months ago. If you see her when you're flying by on Christmas Eve, please tell her I miss her.  And if you come across a nice family while you're delivering presents, please put in a good word for me.


Aren't I cute with my little pink nose?
I might be a little shy at first, but that's only because I've been through a lot in the past year.  The only family I knew for the first three years of my life couldn't keep us anymore and we were surrendered back to BCC.  The good people there tried to keep me and my sister together, but for some reason girl cats are more popular than boys and Ginger found her forever home without me.  My current foster mom is great, but I know she can't keep me forever because she already has a full house.  

If someone nice will adopt me, I promise to come out of my shell quickly and before they know it, I'll be cuddling up with them on the couch and trying to share the bed at night.  Oh!  And I'm in picture perfect health...up to date on my shots, neutered and still young so I have a long life ahead of me.

Thanks for putting in a good word, Santa!

Sincerely,
Your pal Fred

P.S. Here's a picture of me at a recent adoption event where the nice volunteers at BCC were trying to find me a home.  As you can see, I wasn't too thrilled to be in a cage..



If you or someone you know is interested in giving Fred his forever home for the holidays, please contact us at:  (E) btowncitycats@gmail.com or (P) 609-324-3896.

ADOPTED!! Another BCC Success Story!

UPDATE:  Chester is clearly quite the charmer because it didn't take long for him to get adopted. We're so happy that he's found a new forever home!

PREVIOUSLY...

Chester was recently rescued from Mastori's Diner after a number of people reached out to us about a friendly cat who appeared to have been abandoned there.  With their help, we've since taken him in.


He is a very sweet and super friendly, brown/grey tabby with beautiful markings.   He is neutered, vaccinated and in great health. The vet estimates he is approx. 2 years old so he has a long life ahead of him.

We have not been able to test out his interaction with other animals just yet, but he will be available to meet at the Pet Smart on Rt. 1 in Princeton next week.



If you or someone you know is interested in giving Chester a second lease on life, please contact us at: (E) btowncitycats@gmail.com or (P) 609-324-3896.
