Rescue Me ID: 16-09-07-00712Cam (male)

American Shorthair    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Cam is a 6 year old Grey shorthair cat who loves going outside and exploring. He is an excellent hunter with alot of energy and curiosity. I found Cam when in the middle of a busy intersection when he was about 4 weeks old. I am currently living in a small apartment in the city and cannot let him go outside to exercise. He needs space and craves attention. He is a great cuddler, but he sometimes nibbles which has hurt his chances of adoption in the past. I don't know where else to turn and would like to not euthanize him. Please help.

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-04-00501Twenty (female)

American Shorthair Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Cats, Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    1.5 year old female Calico, spayed - named Twenty has been relinquished to our local shelter. As you can imagine, Twenty needs a new home ASAP. Twenty is located at South Ocean County Animal Facility - 360 Haywood Rd, Manahawkin, NJ 08050. This sweet girl was rescued. We found her outside completely emaciated, and at the time, she was pregnant. We brought her in to a vet to get her spayed and vaccinated with hopes to keep her but soon discovered she does not get along with other cats. Twenty had someone interested in adopting her, but their landlord did not approve of pets. Sadly we tried for just about a year to find Twenty a new cat free ... (Read More)home to no avail. With that said she needs to be the only cat as she does not get along with other cats. She likes to go outdoors at times as well. Twenty responds to her name when called. She is not declawed, nor is she micro chipped. All of her shots are current. Some medical expenses are covered until July 20th 2016 as per prepaid Stafford Veterinary Paw Plan (shelter has all this information on file). Twenty is really good with people, but we're not sure how she is with kids as she never had companions that were children, but she is good with dogs as well! Twenty is independent, energetic, playful, sweet, shows affection and is chatty at times. She has been litter box trained (always uses litter box - she is used to Feline Pine litter) and she enjoys eating Fancy Feast Seafood Classic Pate wet food as well as Purina One Hairball Control Dry Food daily. If you or someone you know may be interested in adopting Twenty please go to the South Ocean County Animal Facility located in Manahawkin ASAP to meet her or to express interest in adoption, otherwise she may be put down as they are not a no kill shelter. Thank you! (Less)

American Shorthair Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Percy is a super, easy going kind of guy. He was one of a group of cats abandoned at a farm. He loves everyone he meets and loves to play with his circular toy. Percy does have permanent damage to his eyes from an untreated eye infection and he does need eye drops from time to time, but other than that, he is in great shape. He can see perfectly well and his eyes do not bother him or take away from his 'movie star looks'. We would love to find Percy his permanent home this year. If you are interested, please contact the Pet Adoption League at www.palpets.org, call at 973-584-0095 or email at info@palpets.org

He is starting to come out a little at a time, but you always know where he is because he is a pure machine. Loud purr machine. Lol. I thought the key to him would be food, but it was toys!

American Shorthair Mix    Age: Kitten

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Gracie is a beauty. She is white with gray patches. She was needy and vocal at first but quieted down quickly once sheltered and fed. She is playful, gets along w/other cats, is very adaptable. She wants to be strictly a house cat with a lap to snuggle in and a person to adore. (Very affectionate) She is FIV/FL Negative, spayed, dewormed & received shots.

American Shorthair Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Louie I believe had a home at one time but for some reason found herself lost and alone. She can be very sweet and loving but the outside world has not always been kind and her faith in humanity needs to be restored. She is smart but guarded perhaps because she had to be raising the kittens in the wild. She was a phenomenal mother to a litter of 3 and though now spayed, she continues to care for her offspring. Louie is the Black & White tuxedo cat appearing to wear a batman mask. Her markings are soooooo cute. The black on her nose is symmetrical and wider than the bridge of her nose which makes it appear comical. Her strong, independent ... (Read More)personality can truly be appreciated by someone with prior cat experience. She wants a home badly, she could be an indoor cat who would enjoy a fenced in yard when weather permits or satisfied with a window with a view. She will wrap herself around your feet and your heart if given a chance. She is FIV/FL Negative, spayed, dewormed & up to date w/ shots. (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This is Pewter one of a litter of three. She is quiet and reserved, soulful eyes and a bit timid at first. She will cuddle and purr once you hold her but needs coaxing. She is a beautiful silvery gray and deserves to be spoiled. She is FIV/FL Negative, spayed, dewormed & up to date with shots.
