Kittens Have Arrived! And They Need a Good Home!!

Kitten season has arrived earlier than usual this year!  

UPDATE:  Hooray for Sally, Snuggles & Freddie - they've all been adopted already! However, Timmy is still available for adoption.  If you are interested, please see below for our contact information...

The first three - Sally, Snuggles and Timmy - narrowly escaped a horrible fate.  They were left in a box in the middle of the night on a farm in Chesterfield during 4 degree weather last month along with their mother and two other siblings.  One of the siblings was barely hanging on by the time the family who owns the farm discovered them.  Luckily the family was able to nurse them all back to health and we agreed to step in and help foster them to find them good homes.  

Sally and Snuggles (both female) are very friendly.  Timmy is still a little shy, but very sweet. They are 5-6 mos old and fully vetted.  As you can see by the cone around Sally's neck, she had surgery to correct a complication from her spaying, but she is doing great now.




The fourth kitten - Freddie came to us from another litter.  He is about 6 months old, fully vetted and very, very sweet and friendly.  



If you or anyone you know is interested in giving any of these little ones a forever home, please contact us at:  (E) btowncitycats@gmail.com or (P) 609-324-3896.

ADOPTED!! Another BCC Success story!

UPDATE: We could not be happier to report that Cookie has found a new home to call his own! His new family was looking for a companion for their older cat and Cookie seems to be a great fit. Cheers to a happy ending for someone who really deserves it!

Cookie came to us this week under heartbreaking circumstances.  He is 16 years old and the only family he has ever known - the ones who bottle fed him from the time he was four weeks old - is moving to Switzerland and cannot take him with them.  His family is heartbroken but they have no choice so we agreed to step in and help find him a loving new home to live out his golden years.

We were very worried that he might not take to a new home after being with only one family his whole life but he already seems to be fitting in nicely with his foster family, showing affection, appearing sweet and well-mannered and seems to be getting along well with the other cat in the house.  He loves being petted but is also laid back and equally happy just lounging around.  It's also important to note that he is still in great health and he is also declawed.

What Cookie needs is a kind soul (or souls) who will appreciate his unique situation and give him the love he deserves.  Will it be you?  If so, please contact us at:  (E) btowncitycats@gmail.com or (P) 609-324-3896.

ADOPTED!! Another BCC Success Story!

UPDATE:  Midnight is now resting comfortably and fitting in nicely at his new forever home.  All's well that ends well for this fella.

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.

Randy & Sandy Find a New Home

UPDATE:  After months of trying to socialize Randy & Sandy so they could be adopted, it became apparent that they were just too feral to be domesticated.  But thanks to the help of friends, we've found them a great home on a local farm in Chesterfield where they will be surrounded by tons of other animals and taken good care of by the kind owners of the farm.  They are spayed and neutered and will hopefully have a great, long life together.

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
