Meet our gentle giant, Juan…

This young boy is a gentle giant!  At only 2 years old, Juan was brought to a local shelter weighing over 26 lbs! It was clear that he would need some special attention to get back to a healthy weight. Juan is settling into his Black Cat Rescue foster home and has begun a healthy weight-loss regimen supervised by a veterinarian. His diet and exercise are being closely monitored to ensure weight loss at an appropriate speed.

The weigh-in: Down 2 lbs already!!

Juan loves to be pet! When a person comes into the room, he gets right up to come over for a snuggle session!  He rubs his face all over you and purrs like a loud motor.  Juan‘s other interests include laying on his favorite blankie, nuzzling his stuffed toucan, and playing with string for exercise.

XL cat means XL snuggles!

Meet Socks!

Socks was freaked out by all the dogs at a local shelter so we thought he would do better in a dog-free foster home where he could relax a bit. We were right! Check out Socks rolling around like a rascal and mingling with the other cats he shares his foster home with!

Meet Dyson

Need a guard-cat for your shoe collection?? Dyson fits the bill.  His foster mom found him hanging out aloft a pile of her shoes!

Dyson, feline shoe aficionado.

Dyson: feline shoe aficionado

Dyson is a young playful cat who loves to chase feathers and lasers. When he is done, you can find him lounging in whatever sunny spot he can find.

Dyson was visited by the tooth-fairy…so he is missing 2 teeth.  But our vet says all he needs is some crunchy food to keep the rest of his teeth clean and regular check ups to maintain his remaining pearly whites!

Check out our June new additions!

Black Cat Rescue has taken in a bunch of new fuzzy faces this month, and maybe one of them is your new best friend!

Cuddles is a medium-haired beauty who loves being a lap cat.  When she’s not being pet or purring in your lap, she likes to jump in boxes or nap in a sunny spot.  At 13 years old, Cuddles is hoping to finally find her forever home, without other cats.  Are you the perfect person to cuddle with her?

Ronaldo was found homeless outside and is now loving life indoors.  He is a sweet young cat who loves to lean in for rubs and pets!  If you’re looking for a mellow furry pal, then 2 year old Ronaldo might just be the guy for you!

Bob was living with a colony of outdoor cats in Boston- but he was definitely meant to be a family pet. A fellow rescue worker noticed his charming and kind ways and decided to find him a foster home. Bob stole the hearts of the entire family: humans, cats and even their dog. With such a laid-back and gentle personality – he would be a great addition to any home.

Is Beezy the easy, breezy girl you’ve been waiting for?  Beezy is a low maintenance, sweet, affectionate cat who was too scared living with a more aggressive cat.  She is timid around strangers, but once she warms up she’ll steal your heart with her sweet snuggles.  At only 11 years old, this gal has a lot more love to give!

Meet Kelsey – She is too cute for the street!

Kelsey was a neighborhood stray who landed herself in a trap meant for feral cats. She was taken to the vet by a kind soul who saw lots of thorns and sticky burrs caught up in her long, gorgeous fur. She got some patches of her beautiful fur shaved off to remove the debris – but she got a clean bill of health otherwise. She is ready to let her luxurious fur grow back to its full fluff potential.

After the tumultuous past few weeks, Kelsey is a bit frightened and nervous but we completely understand.  A bad hair cut and a new living situation would leave anyone a little off-kilter!

Well,  I am NEVER going to that hairdresser again!!

Well, I am NEVER going to that hairdresser again!!

Thank goodness she is currently in a Black Cat Rescue foster home receiving lots of love and stability. A familiar routine in a foster home will be key to regaining her trust and getting her ready to settle into her forever home.

Think you have what it takes to spoil Kelsey rotten and restore her faith in us humans? Visit her adoption page:  http://www.adoptapet.com/pet/10479085-somerville-massachusetts-cat

Meet Reno and Vegas – Double Trouble!!

Reno and Vegas came to Black Cat Rescue as a last-minute surprise. It took a little fancy footwork for us to make room for a pair of cats, but after receiving a picture of them snuggled up together, we are so happy that we were able to keep them together – it is quite clear they would be lost without each other.

Care to join our cuddle puddle??

Care to join our cuddle puddle??

These sweet boys were being fed outside by an elderly person who subsequently passed away. They kept hanging around the house looking sad, and a family member sought our help. Now these two handsome guys are safe indoors, loving their food, treats and toys (not to mention one another)! They would love to find a forever home together and never scrounge for food outdoors again.

Not sure which toy you like best? Better to keep them all!

Meet Nicky and Zuzu…. The sister cats!

Nicky & Zuzu are littermates and have lived all their 6 years of life together. Their owner recently passed away and now it’s time for them to find a new human to spoil with their love and companionship.

Zuzu  is a dog-lover and loves to roll around and play.  She can entertain herself for hours with a cardboard box – no expensive toys required. 

Oh, did you want to sit here. ....on OUR couch???

Oh, did you want to sit here…on OUR couch??? (Zuzu – Top & Nicky – Bottom)

Nicky loves to play hunting games and has a great pounce! She also likes to curl up in bed for snuggles.

Nicky & Zuzu have tested positive for feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). Basically, cats who have this virus may have a weaker immune system. Luckily, house cats are indoors & safe from most illness that can effect cats.  This means with a little extra consideration, they are expected to live long and healthy lives.

You can learn more about FIV here: http://bestfriends.org/feline-immunodeficiency-virus.aspx

Nicky & Zuzu are available for adoption as a pair or separately.

Meet Boots!

Check out my white go-go boots!!

Check out my white go-go boots!!

Boots is a young cat with lots of spunk! He’s energetic and playful , which is typical for a 1 year old!! Boots will do best in a home where he can get lots of stimulation and attention to keep him busy.

Perfecting his "Won't-you-adopt-me-today" face...

We think Boots has perfected  his “Won’t-you-adopt-me-today” face…

Boots was staying at a local shelter but being confined in a cage wasn’t his style and he was acting too shy during his adoption visits. Luckily, Black Cat Rescue exclusively uses foster homes to house cats while they await their forever home. We are so happy to provide Boots with a chance to really be himself in a home environment so he can show-off at his adoption visits.

Meet Alex!

Sittin' pretty!

House cat or house panther?? 

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

Meet Sylvester

Always ready for a special occasion, Sylvester comes with his very own tuxedo!

Always ready for a special occasion, Sylvester comes with his very own tuxedo!

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
