  • Tabby - Brown
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Prefers home without cats
This sweet, shy, big girl gives off her unexpectedly high-pitched quiet mew, then lightly jumps up on the couch to knead with her big paws in anticipation of cuddles and treats. She works her right forepaw with delight, purring like a tiger the entire time. Until she knows you, Eleanor may hide. You may have to reach to pet her in her place of safety, but she will be there hoping you do, because she’s addicted to love and wants to purr while you pet her, bunting you with her soft sweetness. Eventually, she will come to meet you with her tail high and vibrating, anticipating a cuddle session on the couch. Outside, she was the only cat who let everybody pet her, even the boys who rode their bikes wildly on the sidewalk. She stayed half-hidden in the bushes but was always grateful for the attention. Now in her foster home, she doesn’t waste a minute of time with her caregiver. Much as she loves food, she will wait to eat until she has no companion she can rub while purring. Eleanor would be a good solo cat, a fine companion, a member of the family. Let her leave pawprints in your heart. Eleanor is around 3 years old, FIV/FeLV negative, spayed, and up-to-date on all vaccinations. For more information or to meet Ms. Purrsevelt, contact June at jbalish@verizon.net or (718) 434-0577.

Missi is a pretty petite tabby girl who would be happy to rest purring in your lap all day long. She adores people and would be a lovely family cat. Missi is approximately 14 months old, vaccinated, microchipped and tested negative for FIV/FeLV. She would be happiest as a single cat in a home although she can live with another low-key kitty. She does very well with gentle kids too. As far as Missi is concerned, giving head butts and being petted, brushed and fed delicious food are the sum of bliss. If you would like to meet sweet Missi, please contact brooklynbridgeanimals@yahoo.com or visit Brooklyn Cat Cafe (CatCafeBK.com) at 149 Atlantic Avenue.

My name is La Belle. I am a female cat with soft fur and the cutest nose. I was rescued 1 year ago and joined another rescue male cat. Unfortunately, he does not like me one bit and I need to find a new foster or adoptive home asap! I love warm laps, sun spots, and chasing my favorite toys. I am friendly and playful, and love being around humans. I am up to date on all of my shots and have tested negative for FIV/ FeLV, am spayed, have records of my vet visits and ready to Go! I would prefer to be a single kitty, but will consider sharing my space with a calm and friendly cat. Please call Susan at 718-858-7006 or email BrooklynBridgeAnimals@yahoo.com to arrange a play date.

  • Tabby - Grey
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Toby is the chillest purr machine there ever was--a BIG fan of head scratches, cuddles, all things yummy, and playing with very refined, fancy toys like shoelaces. Special skills include rolling around in his scratch lounge and reclining by the window (the finer things). Rescued from Crown Heights, where he was found fending for himself this winter, Toby is extra appreciative of finally being warm inside again, quickly revealing himself to be a total love bug. Apprx. 4 years old, his head is also perpetually cocked to the side a bit, which ups his cute factor even MORE. He's truly a dream companion, and is easy going as can be. He's quite adaptable, and would probably do great in a low-key, relaxed environment where he can get lots of head scratches and help you do important chores like "watch TV", while he's also content sometimes exploring and doing his own thing (again, he's the best). If you'd like to meet the little dude, please contact brooklynbridgeanimals@yahoo.com and/or mhnepi@gmail.com

  • Tabby - Brown, Tortoiseshell
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Leia was rescued from the streets at 16 weeks old, so she was a late starter and can seem more aloof than other cats, despite being very sweet and loving once she trusts you and especially at meantime! She is a very quiet cat and mostly prefers the company of other cats and to laze around in her favourite sleeping spots. Once rescued it became clear that she was definitely meant to be a house cat as she is not at all mean and would unlikely have made a good outdoors kitty! She is highly food motivated and enjoys being pet. Speed up the process by offering her treats and meats! Leia is currently residing at the Brooklyn Cat Cafe on Atlantic Ave, and has been coming out of her shell gradually. She gets along well with other cats, mostly the other lazy ones, but is shy around people. She can be overlooked given the number of lovely outgoing friendly cats most adopters are greeted by, but those who spend a bit of time getting to know her and reach out to her will see that sweet side of her that enjoys a nice head rub. Leia will do wonderfully with a family who appreciates her for who she is and can help her gain more confidence. With the right loving person, she might even become a lap cat someday! (These cats tend to pick favorites when they gel with others!) Leia is a brown and red Tortoiseshell tabby with a splash of ginger on one of her back legs. She has a cuddly face like a teddybear! Leia's brother Luke is also located at the Brooklyn Cat Cafe. They have been too busy lazing and interacting with other cats so we have decided that they may be adopted out separately. Leia still requires that she be with another cat in a home. She would likely be afraid of very young children but okay with mature children. Both cats are FiV negative, spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. You can meet Leia at the Brooklyn Cat Cafe. Please contact amyinzombieland[AT]gmail.com with any queries or submit an application if you think Leia would be a good fit for your family!

Elsie is six months old, spayed, negative for FIV/FeLV, vaccinated and microchipped. Please contact Brooklynbridgeanimals@yahoo.com to schedule a play date in her Marine Park foster home.

Marley: Chill Bro Lap-Cat Seeking a chill dude to hang out on your lap and watch the game with you? Are you ready for your next bromance? Our man Marley is just the pal for you - if he were a person we swear he would be wearing a plaid shirt, beard, and baseball cap. Marley is five years old and has had a bit of a bad run, lately. Born in an outdoor feral cat colony in Ditmas Park and rescued as a kitten, he was recently given up by his owner of five years. Marley was somewhat traumatized when he landed at Brooklyn Cat Cafe. After some time hanging out UNDER the couches he discovered it was cooler to hang out ON the couches and meet people. It turned out to be even cooler to sit in their laps (including Santa's!) Boy, does he like to snuggle up to somebody and get some lovin! He also is kind of getting into cat toys and enjoying some exercise now and then. Thus this mellow, affectionate boy has been making the best of this transition period, but he is really looking forward to a stable, forever home and devoting himself to one or two good people instead of an endless series of casual meetings with strangers. Marley is neutered, vaccinated and FIV/FeLV negative. If you'd like to meet Marley, stop by Brooklyn Cat Cafe at 149 Atlantic Avenue, catcafebk.com.

Gina is a happy quirky little tomboy. The smallest and shyest of her siblings, she has blossomed into a gorgeous torbie girl with the cutest nose. She is still suspicious of strangers, and requires a family who would be patient until she came out of her shell; probably less than a week if you have a warm lap! Gina loves other cats of all ages and must be in a home with another kitten or active cat or even cat-loving dog. Gina is 7 months old, spayed, vaccinated, FIV/FeLV negative, and microchipped.

The esteemed Justice Kennedy, a roughly eight year old brown tabby, is seeking a new bench to rest on. JK, as he is known to friends, is a laid back and considerate fellow. Occasionally chatty, JK generally keeps his thoughts to himself (although he's yet to comment about the most recent election). Justice would like nothing more than a couch to snooze on, a window to gaze through and some people to scratch his head. The Good Justice was left in a carrier on a doorstep with very little information about his past. His eartip leads us to believe that at one time he lived in an outdoor colony, although he much prefers the indoor life. He has no complaints over living with dogs, cats or young children. JK is FIV/FeLV negative, fully vaccinated and neutered. He is currently passing judgment at the Brooklyn Cat Cafe, 149 Atlantic Avenue.

Baby is shy and timid at first, but don't let this fool you! Given a little bit of time and patience, she will show you how super sweet, gentle, and loving she is! Even though her safe place is lounging under the bed for now, she loves to join her human companion for lap time and snuggles and pets and head scratches. Once she starts purring, she won't stop. She even lets you rub her paws! This beautiful girl is so sweet, and she would make a wonderful pet to a loving home with or without other pets. Baby has been fully vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, dewormed and is negative for FIV or FeLV. She has a very mild heart murmur, but it does not require any care. She was TNR'ed by the ASPCA so she has a bad-ass ear tip! Full medical records are available. To meet Baby, text or call her foster mom LeeAnn at (609) 306-0909 or email at leeann.falciani@gmail.com

Christopher is a very shy boy who is secretly longing for attention. His resuce and vet visits made him nervous and and so he hides under the couch at the Brooklyn Cat Cafe. But when the crowds are gone, he sneaks out hoping to cuddle up next to a warm person that he knows, purring and purring and purring. Christopher started life one year ago as an orphan with his siblings Connor and Chloe. They all were suffering from a terrible eye infection which left each cat with only one good eye. Christopher has scarring in his bad eye but it is no distraction from adventures with feathers and treats, and it requires no extra care on the part of the lucky person who takes him home. Christopher likes to have a feline companion and should live with another cat. He is spayed, vaccinated and FIV/FeLV negative.

Elvis is a friendly house cat that I found abandoned in a desolate area. Elvis is distinctive in that -while he is not declawed--he does not use his claws--he is not very interested in scratching furniture. Elvis is a big teddy bear. He loves to be picked up and hugged, and purrs loudly. The vet estimates his age between 5-9 years old. He is a super gentle and laid back cat. When I found him I jumped out of the car and picked him right up. He calmly sat in my arms on the way home. Despite his awful abandonment, he likes people, is friendly and has a heart of gold. He loves to be petted and purrs strongly. Elvis is very docile and gentle--would be great with kids. He is currently living with other cats but would rather be a Solo cat. Elvis is a mellow fellow and super low maintenance --he has excellent litter box habits and is not a fussy eater. Elvis tests negative to FIV/ FeLV. Elvis developed Stomatitus recently (gum inflammation) after having dental work. He take a daily pill and now feels fine and has a diet of soft wet food. Elvis was found neutered and has all his vaccines. If you would like to meet him, in Brooklyn, Manhattan, or Staten Island please contact jensenmania@gmail.com. There is a small adoption fee to cover vetting, and an adoption application.
