Anjellicle Cats Rescue: saving New York City cats, one cat at a time


New York City is my favorite city in the world. I love everything about it: the energy, the hustle and bustle, the fact that you can walk everywhere. However, I’ve often wondered what life is like for stray cats in a city like New York.

Thankfully, there are goups like Anjellicle Cats Rescue. They are making a difference for abandoned, stray, and neglected cats and kittens in the city. For over fifteen years, their Hell’s Kitchen-based organization has been a lifeline for cats in need. They are a member of the Mayor’s Alliance and a New Hope Partner with the New York City Animal Care & Control (ACC). Their goal is to help make New York City a no kill city.

They work closely with ACC to pull out those cats who are in danger of being euthanized. Each one is welcomed with kindness Continue Reading

June is Adopt-a-Cat month: Meet some cats looking for their forever homes

Each spring during kitten season, thousands of newborn kittens join the millions of cats already in shelters and foster homes across the country. The American Humane Association has designated June as Adopt-a-Cat Month® to help find these cats permanent homes.

Today, I’m featuring some adoptable cats from various rescue groups. Some are local to my area, others are groups readers of The Conscious Cat volunteer with. Please share this widely – let’s help find these cats their forever homes!

Madison Fancy Cats Rescue Team

You knew I’d start with a tortie! Madison is a a beautiful girl who really loves people and loves getting petted, but doesn’t do well with change. She may  need a little extra time before she settles in, but given the purring and head-butts she gives when she’s being petted, she’ll make someone a loving companion! Madison is fostered by Fancy Cats Rescue Team in Herndon, VA.

Ash, Dusty, Misty SPCA of Northern Virginia

Ash, Dusty and Misty are fostered for the SPCA of Northern Virginia by the same couple who fostered Ruby. These three little siblings are an affectionate, playful, friendly trio. They love to run around together, chasing tails, wrestling, and pouncing on each other. But when they’re all tired out, they like to sit in a warm lap and be adored. Purring comes as second nature to them and they love to cuddle long into the night. You can see more adorable photos of the trio on their foster parents’ photo blog.

Gabbie Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation

Look at this beauty! Gabbie is being fostered by Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation in  Northern Virginia. She is going through a time of upheaval in her life. Her people, who loved her very much, couldn’t keep her, but Lost Dog and Cat Rescue promised her that they’d love her and rub her head until they found her a home that could keep her forever. They believe Gabbie would do well in a home as a single cat or with older, laid-back cats. I actually met Gabbie at an adoption event a couple of weeks ago, and she’s even more beautiful in purrson.


Aurora is being fostered by in Sacramento, CA. She was liberated from the shelter on April 7th and couldn’t be happier. She’s been rubbing all over her foster mom as if to say “thank you!” She came to the shelter with a shaved spot on her side which looked like an area that was injured. She’s good as new and with a good diet and a brushing, she’ll be more beautiful than ever. She’s approximately 3-5 years old.

McGruber, Kitten Associates

MacGruber is fostered by Kitten Associates founder Robin Olson of Covered in Cat Hair fame. This handsome boy was rescued before his time was up at a high kill shelter, but they really think he used a paper clip and some gum to escape so he could be fostered by Kitten Associates! Mac is just a kitten at about 7 months old. He’s playful, very chatty and LOVES other cats! He loves people, too and seems to get along with everyone, though they feel he’s going to be a take charge kind of cat. So if you like a cat who’s ready to run the show, this boy if for you! He also loves to curl up in the sink and play with water coming out of the faucet.

Santos Cat Assistance NY

Santos is an adorable and sweet polylydactyl boy who is fostered through Cat Asssitance NY. He was found outside after being attacked by a raccoon. He had surgery to remove one of his nails and had to have staples put in his head. He’s very laid back and would do well with a dog, other cats and kids.

All of these groups have plenty of other beautiful cats looking for homes. If you’re looking for a new feline companion, please visit their websites, and look around.
