Alfredo is definitely the adventurous sort! He's always looking out of his kitty condo but this only because he has places to go and a furever family to meet. This outgoing gentleman is always trying to chat with visitors, volunteers, and staff. Everyone stops to say hello to Alfred -- he has so many great ideas and love to share! Wouldn't it be grand if he can share all these with you?
This guy is an absolute love but came into the shelter almost dead, his godfather was definitely watching over him. He had to have a feeding tube and then said, "enough!" and pulled it out himself. Now chowing down like like a champ. Originally on the too skinny side, 7lbs, we fixed that up and he now has a fluffy shiny coat to go with. Restricted diet furever. Alfredo has Stage 2 kidney disease which is currently being managed by him trying to eat prescription canned food. Alfredo is still a bright, active, inquisitive cat who can bring a pep & spark to the right home with forever people who will care for him as he struggles against his disease progressing. All we are asking is to give Alfie a chance! Zani's will help with ongoing support for medical needs if necessary. Please apply for this gentle boy who will only get better and better with loving attention.

All our cats are in the NY area and can be adopted out of state. We do like to meet you so plan on picking up; if flying, in cabin only; in some cases we will help with transport.

Please note: kittens MUST be adopted in pairs or to households with age appropriate cat(s) to ensure proper socialization and companionship. NO exceptions! If you would prefer a solo cat, we are happy to recommend cats who would do best as solos. Cats are spayed/neutered, FIV/Felv tested, FVRCP and Rabies vaxed, and microchipped.

Many of us (cats/dogs) will be on display on Saturdays or Sundays, weather dependent--please ask by writing us at and following us on FB. If you are seriously interested in adopting one of us in particular, please fill out an application by Friday so that we can be sure to be there. Otherwise we decide based on other variables. Usually we are in our foster homes so this is a bit more stressful and a slightly artificial environment but we do want to be seen and find our furever homes too. Please come! And if you can't adopt, you can perhaps foster, volunteer, and of course, you can always donate!
