This is an urgent plea for fosters for a short period of time. First, I’d like to tell you this story and why I need fosters immediately. The photo below shows a lot of rubble. That was once a beautiful well built shed where an elderly woman kept her outdoor cats, all rescues, located in Bay Ridge Brooklyn. The woman is no longer on the premises, perhaps in a nursing home or passed on. It seems that whoever is now in charge, tore down the cats home & sealed up any space for them to enter the car garages. These cats had never crossed a street and were well cared for. So far, I have captured 2 and brought them to the vet. Besides being thin from trying to find food, they are very healthy, perfectly white teeth, now neutered and vaccinated, clear eyes, tested negative & are young cats 8 months to 1.5 years. One has been adopted, one I’m holding at my office (can’t do this for long) and there are others out there that I need to get. They are 100% friendly and starving for attention, rubbing on people in the street and meowing for food. I know of one other white male still outside and I’m sure there must be females too. I’m receiving calls almost daily from neighbors telling me about these cats. My problem is that all my foster people including myself are full due to the warm Winter and the many kittens that came from such a calm Winter.
I am willing to compensate anyone that can help and will supply food, litter, crate, bed, etc. I’m willing to train anyone that has not fostered before. I don’t want to trap these cats and release them back to the street as they have no coping skills at all. They are petrified of cars and other cats, and my fear is they will be hurt. These cats are extremely friendly lap cats. If anyone can help, I am in the Bay Ridge upper 70’s area. I can transport. All I need is for someone to hold while they put on a few pounds and while I advertise them. Please email me with your info if you can help, and please pass this on to others. I would like to find these cats homes and continue to get the remaining cats outside to safety. Thank you very much.
