1. June is National Cat Adoption Month because it’s the month when lots of kitties are born, like Fred and Ginger below:
2. While these cuties need a home too, they are pretty easy to place while older cats get ignored.
This is Mike and Ike and they are ADORABLY up for adoption too!
So if you have a fit home for a cat, maybe consider some of these adorable lovelies:
He’s a 7-year-old Tiffany mix with a sweet demeanor (especially when there are treats involved!). Plus, he has those adorable little fangs that just make you want to hug him even more.
She’s 4 years old and LOVES getting her back scratched. She warmed up to me right away and was just a little delight.
He’s 2 years old and just a curious cutie. He was a little bashful but really wanted to play and see what was going on.
Simbasa is 8½ years old and favored her bird toy. She’s fantastic at imparting wisdom like “Wait and the bird shall appear.” She may be starting her own inspirational card line soon, but who knows!
He is just a 1-year-old fluff monster. Look at those eyes!
She was so chill and knew the best spot in the joint: near the window where she could gaze out and passersby could revel in her beauty. She needs to take medication to manage her history of seizures but she says it’s no biggie.
He’s a 4-year-old FIV-positive cat and just as nice as can be. The ASPCA assures that FIV-positive cats can live long, healthy lives with the proper medication; they just cannot be around non-FIV-positive cats. However, they are also the friendliest of cats.
10. And James’ BFF, Gwendolyn
At 6½ years old, she is also FIV positive and slightly more shy. (Though I figured she just wanted to stay near colors that brought our her eyes.)
James and Gwendolyn are so close, they must be adopted together!
LOOK AT THOSE EYES!! She has asthma that is controlled with a daily oral steroid. She would do best in a house of a non-smoker who doesn’t use scented candles or incense. But who wouldn’t give such a small sacrifice for this lady?
Update: Miracle got adopted! Ain’t she a cutie?
Oh my goodness, this 6½-year-old was so ready to play and cuddle. He’s a fairly big cat at 20-something pounds, and it is all love!
At 7½ years old, Bart can be a little serious, but he’s also got a goofy side (see: sticking his tongue out).
Matthew is a 3-year-old polydactyl cat, which is thought to be good luck!
At the ripe age of 3, Cannoli is a sweetie from a not-so-sweet background: She was saved from a hoarding situation and given to the ASPCA.
A Maine Coon mix, he is an athletic beauty who wants to leap right into your arms/into your home.
Acura is an adorable goof who actually gets her name from where she was found: the wheel well of an Acura. We’re sure glad she got out safely!
Jenny is an 8½-year-old sweetheart who knows all her best photographic angles and just loves scratches. She’s so special, she has her own little bell collar all ready.
He also was so good at posing and looking as handsome as ever. Just look at that face!!
Milan was pretty talkative at just 1½ years old. Also, his coloring is just so on point, it’s almost out of control.
Wonderful is, well…wonderful. What more is there to say?
She’s a 1-year-old Havana Brown mix and has the softest chocolate-brown coat I had ever seen on a cat. She insisted on a simplistic background for her headshot, keeping the look “hipster” but dignified.
Oh man, all Sunflower wants is a nice home and probably some good sunny spots to curl up in.
She enjoyed giving me some ‘tude with her eyes but was really just an adorable little thing. She is 3 years old but is actually pretty small.
26. And her 2½-year-old best friend, Trina
Trina was really curious and liked to observe us humans from high up while her best friend explored more closely. They make quite the duo.
Because this curious pair are best friends, they insist on finding a home together.
For how svelte she is, I was surprised her name was Twinkie. She is a beautiful 1-year-old who stood out for all her stretch movies.
Update: Philip got adopted!
At 3½ years old, Alicia is a little spacey. She has some abnormal coordination on the left side of her body as well, which may be the result of a trauma at an early age. Despite that, she is a fluff ball of love waiting for her a home who understands her.
He is a 7½-year-old curious guy. We hear he may have been a musician on the street before and will undoubtedly fill a home with lots of love.
Andromeda wanted to pose very seriously for her photos (she’s 1! She’s trying to earn some respect!) but was very sweet and wide-eyed most of the time I spent with her. Also, her coloring is just beautiful, right??
All of the cats above are from the NYC’s ASPCA. If you are interested in any of them please call (212) 876-7700, ext. 4120 and give their names!
There are also tons of other cats (and dogs!) there if you want to check out other kitties to make your home and life a little fluffier.
