CATS

New Jersey
Marty - Hoboken, NJ

Look at this face!  This is Marty.  He is an 8 yr old, 7.2 lb, neutered male cat.

From his rescuer: 

Just under 2 weeks ago, a guy in the neighborhood dropped Marty off at our house citing personal health issues and that he needed to get rid of him. I had Marty vetted and his kidney values came back very high which means he has chronic kidney disease. He'll need daily Sub-Q fluids which we started today (3/23/19). 

In spite of having chronic kidney disease, Marty is very playful, curious and super affectionate. We have two cats whom he hasn't met yet but has been great with our two dogs, a silky terrier and shepherd pit mix.

 

He eats like a champ and does all his business in the litter box.  We're looking for a special home for Marty, preferably with someone who has experience giving fluids (or is willing to learn, it's EASY!) in exchange for lots and lots of cuddling and purring. 

His foster can be contacted via email:  maryact@gmail.com, or by phone: 201-456-1338.

Jingles - South Jersey, New Jersey

This distinguished gentleman is Jingles.  Jingles is a 15 yr old, 9 lb, neutered male cat.

Jingles was surrendered by his family because the son became severely allergic to cats just recently. If our rescue didn’t take Jingles in, he was headed for the county kill shelter, where at 15 years old, wouldn’t stand a chance.

Jingles is out-going, talkative, and loves rubs & attention. He is okay with other cats, but we can definitely tell he would prefer to be the only kitty. In his prior home he was good with the dog.  He is a wonderful character!

 

Jingles came to us with some health issues per his recent blood work. The main concern is liver disease. Our rescue does a lot of holistic oriented care so this wasn’t a huge concern since the liver can fully regenerate. He also came to us full of fur knots, all over his body. We slowly cut them out one at a time and his fur has since grown back - he looks like a new man 😸.

 

Soon after coming to us, Jingles developed loose stools. He has been on several meds to try to firm things up but with no success. We are now attempting homeopathic treatments in hopes to get things under control. We believe the stress of losing his home and family at his delicate age is the primary cause of his tummy issues. We are looking for either a long-term foster or a permanent hospice home for Jingles, who will continue working on his health with us, while making his senior years as happy as possible.  We would like to keep Jingles within 50 miles of our rescue.  For more information, you can call Lynn at 856-979-4564 (call/text -please leave message if calling) Or email to lynnsanimalrescue@gmail.com.

Rajah - Teterboro, NJ

Rajah is a 3 yr old neutered male. This beauty has been at the shelter since April and he's a purring machine. 

He has FIV but it is a misunderstood disease.  These cats CAN live with other non-FIV cats as long as they are not aggressive. It is NOT spread through casual contact but only through deep bites.  Many animals live for years with no signs of the disease. There is a lot of information on FIV here: https://www.hospicepet.com/fiv-and-felv

Visit Rajah at the Bergen County Animal Shelter located at 100 United Lane, Teterboro, NJ Tue - Sun 1:00 - 4:00 PM 🐾 Application and adoption fee applies. All animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, tested for FIV/FeLv and dewormed. https://www.co.bergen.nj.us/images/Departments__Services/Health_Services/Animal_Shelter/2017-Adoption-Application.pdf

Grace O'Malley - Lafayette, NJ

Meet Grace O'Malley!  She is a 10 yr old, 11 lb, female spayed cat.

Grace O'Malley arrived at the shelter knocking on deaths door. She has very slowly been recovering with us, and has a long way to go. She was severely neglected and matted. We were lucky to receive her when we did, and lucky we were able to diagnose her Diabetes quickly and start her on insulin. She has responded very well to treatment, but still will need constant supervision of her glucose levels, litter box habits, and water consumption. She will need regular blood testing, but there is a possibility that she could go into diabetic remission if she continues to progress well with treatment.

 

It is for this reason we are looking for an adopter who has experience dealing with special needs cats. Additionally Grace is looking for a home without other cats, or a home where she will have her own space away from other cats. She doesn't seem to like them much, and its also recommended by the veterinarian she have her own litter box anyways.

 

Even though Grace has had a rough start, she has never stopped enjoying human company. She loves to get attention and she purrs every time someone walks into a room. She may need a little extra from you, but she gives back so much more in loving affection and sweetness. She may look rough around the edges but she is so so gentle and kind. She would make a wonderful addition to any home that is open to giving an extra special kitty the time she deserves.

Dallas - Teterboro, NJ

Meet Dallas!  Just look at his chin, it is begging to be scritched!  He is a 4 yr old, 8 lb, neutered male cutie-patootie. 

Dallas is very affectionate, loves attention and to be loved on and has the cutest short tail. Dallas is special needs because he has a heart murmur although he is on no treatment at this time. Give this adorable boy a chance and reach out for more information!

 

Dallas is located at Bergen County Animal Shelter located at 100 United Lane Teterboro, NJ 201-229-4600.  Please not that now through Aug 16th there is a name your price adoption special* Adopters must come in person with completed application, requirements still apply. Hours: Tues - Sun 1 - 4 PM  Adoption Application.

Agatha - Oakland, NJ

Raise your hand if you want to be adopted!  This is Agatha!  She is a 15 yr old, 6 lb, female spayed cat.

Agatha is a 15 year old, domestic short hair who came to us from another shelter where they were unable to provide her with the advanced level of care she initially needed. Agatha is hyperthyroid, has kidney disease and a dermatological condition.

 

We have since gotten her more stable on both medication and a special diet, which she will need to be kept on in her foster home. Though she is an older gal, she still has a lot of life left in her. When given the opportunity to roam around, she is still super active and enjoys to play. Agatha is incredibly affectionate with people and is tolerant of the other cats. However, it is probably better that she go to home with no other animals so that her diet can be more easily managed or she will need her own space in which to eat.

For all information please email: cfarrar@rbari.org.  If someone wants to take Agatha on Fospice, she should stay within close range to her shelter but she can go further for adoption.

Baby Girl - Red Bank, NJ

This is Baby Girl.  She's a 10 yr old, 7 lb, female spayed cat.

Baby Girl has an urgent situation that is not her fault and I hope that we can help her.  A small rescue who doesn't have room for her was contacted about her and they are willing to help with the adoption process although they do not have foster for her.

Baby Girl's owner developed Alzheimer's Disease. Her husband is overwhelmed with the challenges of caring for his wife and cannot handle caring for the pets. The other family cats were taken to a shelter but they would not take Baby Girl with her medical condition.  The rest of the family confirms that Baby Girl's safety is definitely at risk.

Baby Girl was diagnosed as diabetic, but no one is giving her insulin right now. She seems to be doing pretty well on Purina DM prescription diet. Baby Girl is a little cautious at first with new people, but very sweet once she gets to know someone. She has lived with other cats for years but can be a bit of a bully with other cats, so if she went to a home with other cats it should be a large home where they are not in close quarters. These are the photos submitted to us by the family.

The rescue that is attempting to help is willing to drive 6 hrs to deliver Baby Girl or meet someone half-way.  They really want to help.  For all information, please email: PANinc@att.net.

Tucker - Lafayette, NJ

Meet Tucker!  He is a 5 yr old, 7 lb, neutered male cat.

Tucker is a wonderful and super affectionate cat! He is looking for someone who can be very understanding of his needs, and will not be scared off by his scary sounding diagnosis. Tucker is FIV+ and in diabetic remission. He does not need medications or additional care at this time. Just like with any pet, if you notice he has any concerning symptoms you would take him to the vet, but as long as he stays on his favorite food and he stays indoor-only there is no reason why he can't live like a totally normal cat.

 

He likes Fancy Feast Classic Pate, and as long as he stays on it consistently he should stay in diabetic remission. FIV sounds scary, but it really isn't - read more about it at https://www.hospicepet.com/fiv-and-felv. If you would like to know more about it please contact us and we will explain exactly why you shouldn't be concerned at all.

 

Tucker wants to be an only-cat, he isn't a fan of other feline friends. He is loving and affectionate and has lived with kids previously, and would love to have little buddies to cuddle with again, although he would be happy to snuggle with anyone. He is so sweet and affectionate, would you consider taking in this wonderful special needs kitty?
