With so many cats going up for adoption this week, it’s hard to decide which one to choose. But the good news is, you enjoy the company of other cats the most. So why not go to your local animal shelter and bring home at least one new best friend today!
Available for adoption at the Smithtown City Animal Shelter
Meet Wabbit, the Smithtown Animal Shelter’s pet of the week. This 5 year old guy was found abandoned in a wild cat colony where he was hacked by more dominant cats. He has a wrinkled ear, either due to a chronic ear problem or an ear injury, and this occasionally requires a little extra care and cleaning. Wabbit is a shy and calm cat who can be shy around people, but loves to play with toys when no one is looking. When he’s shown a little love, he will make sure that he gives a lot of love back! Wabbit’s ideal life will be a quiet home and a patient family.
For more information on introducing Wabbit, call 631-360-7575.
Available for adoption at Allykatz
Biscuit is a fairly active kitten, so active that he prefers to play with other cats and dogs, but not so much with young children. He’s up to date on all of his shots, neutered, and ready to become your next best friend today!
If you have a bunch of kids running around your house, Mae is the girl for you! This friendly lady is in the best of health up to date and is looking for her home forever. Could this house be yours?
Check out Maggie and her cute little slippers! This friendly cat gets along with everyone – cats, dogs, people – you name it! Maggie is fully checked and ready to take you home today!
Buttercup is as cute as its name. This 2-3 year old sweetheart also gets along great with cats and children, so what are you waiting for, scoop up this buttercup as soon as possible!
Braveheart needs a very special carer or adoptive child. He’s a cute cat, but very scared. He is affectionate with other cats and likes to be around people, but needs socialization that will help him pet and cuddle. If you have the patience to help this little guy, he is sure to warm up to you and return the favor with affection.

You might find 2 year old Tux (adoption # G26627) chillaxing in a cubby like any other regular cat. Take a closer look and you will discover something special about this rescue from Georgia. No, we’re not talking about his low-key personality, although his appreciation for attention is quite charming. Check out those extra toes – 27 total! That’s a pretty purrfect polydactyl! There’s no extra charge for these bonus digits, so don’t let Tux get away with asking for more goodies. But let him rub all the ears he wants because he is especially worthy of all the attention. Although Tux can be shy at first, a seasoned cat owner will easily calm him down. Tux is looking for a quiet home (with children aged eight and over and no other pets) to assure him that he is finally where he belongs all the time!
Seven-year-old Cali Bleu (adoption # BF3723) spent the first part of her life fighting for her fair share in a turbulent environment; NSALA guarantees that the rest of their lives will be nothing more than enjoying sunspot as the only pet in a safe home. Offer her a place to call her own and you will find a deeply grateful lady who is ready to shower you with all the love she has filled herself. This lucky girl loves to rub from the tips of her ears to the end of her tail! Cali is a nice choice for quiet homes with children aged twelve and over. She is so ready to claim your heart today!
1 year old Archie (adoption # IR1332) is from Oman and would love to talk to you about his adventures! This very vocal boy has a lot to say about the wild ride he’s had so far, but most of all he wants to make sure you appreciate him as much as he appreciates the pleasure of being your only one. Because of his sensitivity to adapting to new situations, Archie seeks an only pet home (with children aged 12 and over) so that he can focus all his attention on settling into the comfortable life he deserves. He feels like he fought hard enough to get where he is today and wants the rest of his life to go smoothly – and rub his ears. How could you resist with ears as incredible as his! NSALA hopes it never grows on their ears, but they know that if you whisper to them that you will love him forever, they will never tire!
Lovely Lily (adoption # NCI0298) can’t be stopped from turning her frown on her head by a small setback in her living situation. This brave four year old girl lives to put smiles on the faces of her admirers, and she is pretty good too! She saves for a human companion because she longs to be the center of attention – so no other pets please! Offer her an ear massage and you will find that she is ready to purr with you for a lifetime.
Even though Maddie (adoption # NCR5924) is only 2 years old, she feels like she’s been looking for her forever home … well, forever. She lost her original home in North Carolina when her family moved away and left her in an animal shelter. Her foster family sang kudos for what an adorable lap cat she was when she felt safe and loved. Now Maddie has been greeted in NY with a brand new chance for a happy new beginning. This lovely lady helped narrow down the selection of houses that would be best for her by telling us that she is ready to be the only object of affection for a devoted person, in a peaceful home with elderly , understanding children – from eight years. Maddie longs for peace and quiet and dreams of being loved by someone who understands that her trip has made her a little doubtful. Your kindness and encouragement are all she needs to overcome her fear and rub her chin straight that she craves.
When local heroes found two-year-old Franny (adoption # L80612) abandoned, they jumped into action and secured her a safe place at Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center. NSALA has given this scared little lady all the loving care she needs to gain trust and has discovered that she makes an adorable playmate when given the opportunity to settle in new situations. The NSALA would be delighted if Franny would further strengthen her trust in a quiet home with children aged 16 and over. She will feel most secure as the only pet in her home, which means nothing will stop her from expressing all of her gratitude for her ultimate hero – the one who gives her everything wholeheartedly.
Three year old Harley (adoption # NCR7207) traveled far to be spotted at Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center. This North Carolina rescue doesn’t want to waste time getting to know the other cats who share their place. She wants an experienced person to be her own. Provide her with a quiet, sunny spot and she will reward you with enthusiastic conversation and attentive admiration. If you have a calm, predictable environment (with kids ages 10+) that can give her the stability she craves, Harley is the gentle tabby for you!
