Ranger and Lily

**Senior Alert** Ranger and Lily are a bonded pair of siblings who sadly lost their old home to a fire. Ranger is an 18 year old male black and white Domestic Shorthair, and Lily is a 12 year old female Brown Tabby Domestic Shorthair. They are very healthy for their age and have recently had their teeth polished! Both cats are sweet and outgoing and have lots of love to give. Ranger and Lily get along well with other cats and previously lived with a small child, so they would get along well with most families. They adore each other so much and would prefer to be adopted together but can be separated if need be.

If you can save Ranger and Lily, please call 631-360-7575.

Available for adoption through Tender Loving Cats


Oreo is a calm cat with a lot of character. She loves affection but will let you know when she’s had enough with a light paw pat. She is often found lying on her back with her paws up, looking at her cutest. His foster family adores him and has hundreds of photos to prove it.

Oreo was found freezing begging for food, likely lost or abandoned. Oreo found her way into a home but was terrified of her new surroundings which the owner didn’t have the patience for. Before Oreo knew it (within hours), she was back on the streets. After some time spent chilling out and now knowing she’s in a safe and secure environment, Oreo has blossomed into an adorable companion cat. She hasn’t been introduced to any other animals yet, and she very much needs to be a single pet. She enjoys catnip toys, string toys, looking out windows and bird watching. Oreo seems to prefer the company of women to men, but the right fit could change that. Younger children should be supervised when interacting with her just for the occasional tapping. He really is a special cat, and his adopter will be one lucky person to have him in his life.

When the NSALA team was notified of a tabby damsel in distress, they quickly got her to safety. Six-year-old Josie (Adoption #H207462) has had to adjust to a lot after losing her home, but time and patience are our specialties at Animal League America. Josie is looking for a human being whose heart is overflowing with love who will give her the security she longs for and the time she needs to reacclimate to life at home. An experienced household (with children over 12 and no other pets) will have this shy beauty that will crave more attention.

Midnight and Magic

**Double Adoption** When a fearful pair of devoted 5-year-old mini panthers needed a place to land after losing the home they had shared, the NSALA team invited them to a quiet and safe place to relearn how to trust humans. Magic (Adoption #BF1617) and Midnight (Adoption #BF1615) let go of their apprehensions and enthusiastically entered playtime with friends. NSALA is so proud of how far this sweet pair have come in such a short time and has promoted them to a more visible room at Bianca’s Furry Friends feline adoption center, where their quiet new friends patiently wait to show them the benefits of trust the humans who care for them. While Magic might want to spend her time in a loving embrace with Midnight, Midnight is ready to accept new friendships, enjoy body massages and delicious treats. You will find him eager to fit into your lap if you give him time to visit. Their ideal home is that of experienced adults to help fearful cats adjust to new household routines. Time, patience, love, and treats add up to Magic and Midnight’s recipe for success.

Honksu and Hokkaido

**Double Adoption** Eight-month-old Honshu (adoption # H211098) and Hokkaido (adoption # H211099) formed a close bond when they struggled to survive on their own in the great outdoors last summer. Now safely nestled together in a comfy bed, they lean on each other to come to terms with this new life being offered to them in the safety of Bianca’s Furry Friends feline adoption center. Although their experience with humans was limited until they joined us, they quickly learn how nice it is to be served meals in a warm bed. NSALA looks forward to seeing continued growth once these adorable siblings find their loving family. If you have a peaceful home with children over the age of 8 who can help them settle into their final destination, they will finally know a safe home!

Tutelo and Cayuga

**Double Adoption and Senior Alert** Ten-year-old Tutelo (adopt #BF2528) and Cayuga (adopt #BF2529) are very comforted by each other, so NSALA is determined to let them always go through together. After a rocky start in a perilous situation, these seniors are ready to begin a new chapter in a quiet home with loving humans (and kids over 12) who will be dedicated to making every moment of their lives comfortable. These gentle gentlemen need very little, and in return you receive gratitude for providing them with the loving home they have always deserved. You can start your journey with Tutelo and Cayuga by offering treats and ear rubs; they will take over your heart as soon as you assure them that they are safe.

Garfield and Highway

**Double adoption** Eight-year-old Garfield (adoption #BF3963) and Freeway (adoption #BF3964) may have been abandoned by their old family, but they’ve found a (temporary) new one among their feline and human friends at the Furry Friends feline adoption center in Bianca. These close-knit gentlemen have learned to lean on us and each other as NSALA helps them get a fresh start by finding them a forever family committed to keeping them safe and happy. Easy to do! Just offer them treats and ear rubs, and you’ll quickly make friends. Garfield and Freeway may be quiet, but they’re immensely grateful to be in warm beds or exploring new toys in their bedroom. You’ll fall in love with them immediately, which is great because NSALA wants them to come back to loving homes as beloved pets in their place!

Trent Reznor

Trent Rezner, 10 months (Adoption #H211500), is nothing but love! This rockin’ kitten was rescued locally and brought to Bianca’s Furry Friends feline adoption center, giving her the opportunity to find adopters who will give her a safe life in a loving home. There’s nothing stopping this cutie from stealing hearts. He is the perfect choice for any family looking for a best friend to befriend their lonely cat at home!


**Senior Alert** 12-year-old Isabel (Adoption #H194441) needed help restoring her faith in human beings. The NSALA was alerted to her desperate need for safety when neighbors reported her abandoned at her home. Their team rescued her and after she received a clean bill of health and placed her in a quiet space to breathe easily as she learned she could be dependent on people. This gorgeous senior has never lived with other cats, and would prefer to be the only pet, in a quiet home with understanding children (over 10) and adults who have already shown the patience needed to take care of shy cats. New situations frighten Isabel, but she sees how sweet and loving her guardians are, giving her something she hasn’t had in a very long time: someone to rely on. If you want to give Isabel a comfortable place to land after a tough time in her life, you could be the hero we’ve been waiting for.

Malt and Milkshake

**Double Adoption** Malt and Milkshake needed help when allergies became a problem at home with humans they had shared for most of their lives. Now safely nestled together in a comfy cubby at Bianca’s Furry Friends feline adoption center, this tight-knit pair of one-year-old siblings will love each other through this – hopefully brief – time as we help them find a permanent solution to their problem: your family! Their shyness makes them a good choice for quiet households with children (8+) who will harbor any apprehensions they may bring with them as they settle back into family life as well-behaved pets. loved.

Mowgli and Twilight

**Double adoption** Mowgli, one year old (adoption #LA2501), is a mother’s son. Just ask his mom Twilight (Adoption #LA2502) who wouldn’t leave him behind when it was time to move on from the hard work of mothering kittens. Two-year-old Twilight wants to spend all of her tomorrows with her handsome boy. How sweet is that? ! Although this pair of mini panthers may start out shy, they will work together to overcome their apprehension and find their way into the hearts and homes of what will be their first real family. Would like to give this mother and son a special place in your quiet home. They promise to be forever grateful!
