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.

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..

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.

All in a Day's Work...

Ever wonder what we do on a daily basis?  Through rain, sleet, snow and even on holidays our volunteers are out there everyday feeding the feral cat colonies in Bordentown to make sure they survive the harsh elements.  Here are some pictures taken by one of our volunteers on Christmas Eve...




Of course, feeding all of these colonies 365 days a year comes with a substantial price tag, so if you would like to help support our efforts, you can now donate easily online through Paypal.  And because we are now officially a registered 501c3 organization, your donation will be fully tax deductible.

Best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year from all of us at Bordentown City Cats!

ADOPTED!! Another BCC Success Story!

UPDATE:  We are so happy for Cinderella...she is starting off the new year in her new forever home after being abandoned by her previous owner this fall. A fairytale ending for our little princess. 

PREVIOUSLY:
"Cinderella" came to us at the end of November after some concerned residents in Fieldsboro contacted us.  Apparently she and her brother had been kicked out into the cold by their previous owner with winter and the holidays bearing down on us.  Concerned neighbors were kind and caring enough to take them in and reach out to us and they are now resting nicely with one of our foster volunteers.  She is fixed, fully vetted, healthy and appears to be only a few years old.



If you or someone you know is interested in giving Cinderella the fairy tale ending she deserves, please contact us at:  (E) btowncitycats@gmail.com or (P) 609-324-3896.

ADOPTED!! Another BCC Success Story!

UPDATE: Santa was a little late in delivering on Marilyn's Christmas wish, but after a few rough months she has finally found her forever home and we couldn't be happier! Thank you to everyone who helped spread the word.


PREVIOUSLY...

Dear Santa:

Don't you just want to cuddle with me?
Thank you for helping my friends Fred and Prince Charming find homes for the holiday.  They are both very excited and that got me thinking…if you have any free time between now and Christmas, maybe you could help me find a “furever” home too?

It’s been a tough year and I might not have survived if it hadn’t been for the kind employees at Dr. Rosso’s office.  They found me on the street when I was hungry, pregnant and covered in dirt and took me in and called Bordentown City Cats.

Since then, I’ve been cleaned up, checked out and I’m in great shape now.  At the risk of bragging…I’m quite adorable, if I do say so myself, and very petite for a fully grown girl.  My pictures don’t do me justice. 

So when you’re out and about this Christmas, if you come across any nice families looking for a sweet, little girl cat to cuddle up with, please put in a good word for me?  Oh, and please let them know that I’m all fixed now, so no more babies for me!

Thanks Santa!

Your friend,
Marilyn

ADOPTED! Another BCC Success Story!

UPDATE:  Prince Charming has found his forever home just in time for the holidays and we couldn't be happier for him!


PREVIOUSLY:

"Prince Charming" came to us last week after some concerned residents in Fieldsboro contacted us.  Apparently he and his sister had been kicked out into the cold by their previous owner with winter and the holidays bearing down on us.  Concerned neighbors were kind and caring enough to take them in and reach out to us and they are now resting nicely with one of our foster volunteers.  They will be going to the vet this week to be checked out, but they appear to be healthy and only a few years old.
