Cat Adoption

As you may know, we recently lost our 13 y/o pittie. We're not ready for another dog with a 3 y/o and 8 month old at home and busy work schedules, but hopefully in a few years we'll have a dog again. But the house feels empty and I always wanted my kids to grow up with pets. So we're planning to get a kitten and surprise the kids (well DD really, DS doesn't even know what a cat is Chat Icon) with the kitten on Christmas morning. Chat Icon

That being said, we're not sure where to look to adopt! We've adopted several pets from North Shore, but I wanted to see what else was out there. We're located in Lynbrook, but willing to travel a bit.

Also, it's been awhile since I've lived with a cat... let me know if there's anything I really need or something really cool that I might not know about. On my list I've got:

-Covered Litter Box and scooper
-Cat "Cave" Bed
-Cat tree with perches and ropes
-Elevated dishes
-Cat toys: balls with bells/feathers; feather "fishing rod" type toys, and one of those roller circuit toys that they chase through the tunnels

Re: Cat Adoption

I got my kittens through Petco- they usually have the cages where they have some pets from local rescues and shelters.
They have kittens often.
Check your local Petcos and Petsmarts for sure.

Thanks! We did check out Petco this weekend- for more fish stuff actually... DD won a goldfish at a street fair and OMG this is the healthiest effing fish I've ever seen. He's tripled in size! But we looked at the cats and they had maybe 4 older cats, no kittens. But I'll keep them in mind!

Re: Cat Adoption

Some Veterinarians have cats and kittens up for adoption.
My vet has a gorgeous cat that someone dumped on their doorstep. She is pure white but has no teeth so they are having a difficult time aging her. She could be anywhere from 2-10. Recently spayed too.

eta : DH will not let me get her. Once I saw the post on FB, I was ready to leave the office to get her. My spoiled cat would also have a fit if I brought in another cat.

There's Bide-A-Wee too.

I would look for kittens in your area on Petfinder and you can see what is available from a variety of rescues.

Yeah, that's what my plan is mostly. I just figured I'd ask around if someone used a rescue they really loved. Thanks! Chat Icon

Bobbi and the Strays in Freeport.

I went there recently but the cat I was looking for was with a foster. But they were great.

Thanks!! I know them from their Queens location, but didn't know they had a Freeport location. I'm going to check them out.

Re: Cat Adoption

we adopted from Bobbi and the Strays earlier this year. Just so you know, they are very strict about placing their pets in good homes and will do a home check before you can adopt any cat, so you probably won't be able to walk in and walk out with a cat in one visit.

That's very good to know! Thanks! I did put in an application in a few places in anticipation of adopting, maybe I'll do that there as well. Chat Icon
