I’m starting to use this again! I didn’t have a ton of followers anyway, so I’m really happy I didn’t lose any. :3
This blog isn’t supposed to be about me per se, but I want to start doing it again because I made some life decisions and I’m going to vet tech school! So I think it’ll be a fun learning experience to keep posting information here.
Here is a fluff butt. He is safe in a foster home.
Happy has come so far from being the growly, hissy, frowning little cat that came into the shelter. She loves to be rubbed gently on her chin and her cheeks.
I still recommend her for a very patient, cat-experienced home, as she is still pretty shy and can startle easily. She will need a good amount of time to adjust in a new place but I know she can do it.
All my free time between cleaning and pet matchmaking at work has been devoted to Happy, so she gets to be the featured cat again.
one of the smaller Wild Cats. The Sand Cat inhabits the arid regions in the Middle East. There are five distinct populations: two in the Sahara desert of northern Africa, one in southern Saudi Arabia, one around the Caspian Sea in Russia, and one in Pakistan. Isn’t she lovely :) ♥

DO NOT call the shelter and say you are adopting unless you truly intend on physically going to the shelter to adopt the cat. It ties up phones lines and is a waste of the staff’s time to explain the adoption procedure over the phone for someone who is purposely not going to show up. They need every free second of their time to answer calls, assist actual adopters, process intakes, and care for the animals. More importantly, they will note the cats’s file that an adopter is en route which will prevent an actual adopter from saving the cat. This is considered a “fake adoption” hold and that is how animals fall through the cracks and end up being killed.
For more information on a particular cat, email firstname.lastname@example.org but ONLY if serious about adopting, and ONLY if you are able to GO TO the shelter in-person. Please do not email for status updates… the only thing you will accomplish is spamming their in boxes and causing REAL adopter emails to go un-noticed. Contact the NYC ACC at (212) 788-4000 for further automated instructions.
This baby was sitting on her perch instead of hiding in the litter box this afternoon. She also let me handle her in the cage without swaddling first. I AM SO PROUD OF HER
I asked my coworkers to work with her while I’m gone during the week but I’m going to miss my lil burrito kitty.
As always, this cute lady is already spayed and available for adoption. :3
Cranberry the cat (A19692597) is at ACCT Philly. He has until 6pm on Monday (tomorrow) to find foster care, or 8pm to be adopted. His time will run out at the end of tomorrow because the shelter is at full capacity and this poor baby has ringworm and a cold.
The cold is easy to treat with oral medication and ringworm is a very treatable fungus.
Cranberry is in the Kneady Cat program, where a volunteer spends lots of quality time with him regularly and knows his personality very well. I hear from ACCT that he is a very friendly and sweet cat.
Thanks to Philly Urgents Page on Facebook for this picture!
Day 2 of burrito therapy with Happy went well, she still needs work though. She is my cat of the day because we were short staffed today and I didn’t have any time to take new pics. I recommend her as a project cat for a very experienced cat owner or an indoor/outdoor barn cat for someone with a farm.
Happy (picture below) was hissing and growling in her cage. After I hung out and sat with her a couple times throughout the day, she calmed down enough to sniff my hand and she let me wrap her up. She purred while in the burrito, and when I let her out she let me pet her with my hands inside the cage.
She’s been at the shelter since April 25th and is still growling at people, so things don’t look good for her if we can’t take the time to help work on her behavior. Behavior makes and breaks the chances cats have in an open-admission city shelter that’s always pressed for space.
Happy is 3 and she has been spayed. She was caught in a humane outdoor trap but is not feral. She needs a very special foster or permanent home with someone patient and experienced with cats.
Sapphire is the tiny panther princess of BARCS. She is 2 years old but very small, so she can be someone’s tiny bab forever! A curious cat who enjoys playing and snuggling equally, Sapphire seems to be interested in other cats if she sees them across the room. She is alert and aware. I believe she would be fine with kids and other cats as long as her boundaries are respected, she sometimes tolerates being picked up but doesn’t love it. As always with the black cats, someone come adopt her before I get too attached.
