Happy news! Simon went home Friday night!
One of our Foster Volunteers, Nadja, brought Simon to our attention because a friend of hers had taken him in when he was found outside in very cold weather. Nadja briefly fostered Simon, but he tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) so we moved him to a foster home with no other cats. Simon was nervous around his new foster dad at first, but after a few weeks they really became dedicated couch buddies.
Theresa just moved to Boston and was looking for a new feline friend. She specifically wanted a cat less likely to be adopted. Since Simon is a little older and FIV+, we thought he’d be a good fit since she has no other cats. When Theresa walked in to meet Simon he ran right over to her and didn’t leave her the whole visit. We’ve never seen such a successful adoption visit! Theresa didn’t want to leave without him, but Simon definitely wouldn’t have let her leave.
An update after their first night together:
“Oh my gosh, Simon is the sweetest little love bug ever! After a brief stint of hiding in the closet, he is now glued to me, following me around the apartment and hopping in my lap whenever I sit down. He’s already eating like a champ and using the litter box. I think this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship.”
Congratulations to Simon and Theresa!
Alex is a chilled-out cat. Lately, he has not been in the mood to socialize with the frisky bunch of cats he shares a home with. Frankly, he is pretty depressed and needs a change of scenery to help chase away his blues! We think Alex will really have a chance to shine in his new foster home where he gets to be the only cat.
Alex loves to sit near the window and watch all the excitement going on outside. Alex is ready to be King of the Castle and keep watch over his court. Your majesty awaits…come take him to his new palace!!
Meet Alex and see if he is the right cat for you! http://goo.gl/iNdGlP
Sylvester’s owners could no longer keep him due to financial hardship. We knew that such a friendly and vivacious kitty would be a great candidate for adoption. Sylvester is currently in his new foster home maxin’ and relaxin’. Come meet Sylvester and see if he is a perfect match for you! http://goo.gl/iNdGlP
Lucy does a great Lil’ Bub impression when her tongue sticks out just a little bit. She gets very relaxed when you pet her and her tongue slips out and makes her look adorable! If that doesn’t melt your heart, her polydactyl, mitten paws should do the trick. She loves to pose for pictures and show off her cuteness!
At 14 years old, she is a very low-maintenance kitty. Lucy would fit in at a home with other pets as the wise matriarch, or she would be happy to go to a quiet home where she can have lots of naps and watch reruns of The Golden Girls & I Love Lucy.

Sprite (formerly Vincent) was adopted from Black Cat Rescue in late 2013. Since then his adopter Jessica has kept us updated on this handsome young cat’s charmed life.
Wizard is a well rounded 2 year old cat. He loves to clown around and be the center of attention. Unfortunately, he needs to find a new landlord who is cat-friendly. Wizard knows what it means to be a good pet. He will provide entertainment with all of his antics and snuggle time when he wants to sleep. Check out this silly guy!
Daisy is a neighborly gal who started showing up in someone’s yard and charmed her way into the house with her sweet, affectionate ways! She loves being pet, brushed and sleeping up on the couch. The folks who took her in would love to keep her if it weren’t for a family member with severe cat allergies.
This lovely girl stole a piece of their heart and they were sad to see her leave. But they knew she deserved a home where she could roam free and not be restricted due to someone’s allergies. These kind people wanted to be sure she found her way to a happy home so they contacted Black Cat Rescue. We are excited to help Daisy find her forever home! Could it be yours?
