Meet the Cats

Marigold, our cafe cat!

Estimated Birthday: July 25, 2016

Favorite Toy: Catnip Banana

Marigold was an exceptionally lucky kitten! Hers was the last litter trapped in 2016; a family sheltering in a barn slated for demolition. Marigold has a ventricular septum defect...a hole in her heart. We are running the gamut of veterinarians to see what we can do to give her the absolute best life possible. 
Marigold doesn't act like a cat with a wonky heart...she is full of love and life! 
She plays with skitter toys, and loves to play tag with the other cats.  She is UNDERFOOT ALL THE TIME. Literally. She will rub her back on the underside of your foot as you try to walk.  It is almost as endearing as it is life threatening. 


Marigold is currently 5, and going strong! She is the official cafe cat for the Alley Cat Cafe, and gets almost as much attention as she wants.

We aren't sure what Marigold's future holds, we only know that she will embrace it wholeheartedly. 



Tika is wonderfully amazing cat and mama to her babies! She is a super sweet and mellow girl who loves head scratches and belly rubs. Tika is a vocal cat who loves to be in the middle of everything! Although she is not a lap cat, she will take every opportunity to snuggle up near you and be in your company. Simply put, Tika is amazing and deserves all the loving. After all her hard work of being a mama, she is ready for a loving home of her own.

Darla is following a different path than her ancestors.  Darla started life as a feral barn kitten, who became a feral barn mama to be.

She was trapped by BCR as part of a TNR effort, but seeing that she was carrying passengers, and very near her time, she ended up being put up in the maternity ward at BCR headquarters.  Four kittens and six months indoors being pampered later, Darla has decided that people are pretty ok. She's not the sort of cat who wants to be scooped up and snuggled, but she's a fan of sitting next to her person and having her head squished like a tennis ball. She's not at all shy when it comes to asking for brain smooshing time. Darla is great with other cats, tolerant of good dogs, and enjoys quiet and respectful children.

She would do best in a home with a reasonable amount of quiet and routine.
If you're looking for a sweet and unique cat, let Darla continue her journey with you!

Looking for love?  Meet Cupid!

He is very curious and energetic- always ready to play. He loves feather wands, crinkly batting toys, laser toys and looking out of windows. His trilling sounds are sweet and hilarious as he follows you around, ready to be part of whatever is going on. In this way he’s a bit like having a puppy w/out the need to be walked!

He likes playing with water, especially the drips in the tub after the shower is used. He also loves his scratching post and snuggling/cuddling on laps for naps, usually after he’s eaten. He’s well behaved, easily warms up to new people (especially if they have treats and want to play) and is wonderful w/ kids, cats and well behaved dogs. He’s a truly adorable and fun kitten to be around!

Captain Walrus

Meet Venus!
Traditionally, Venus encompassed love, beauty, desire, prosperity, and victory.  Even if she doesn't live up to her namesake 100%, it certainly can't hurt to open your heart and home to her!  She's a sweet and loving kitten...check.  She's an absolutely gorgeous girl, a unique beauty...check.  Some believe that cats are conduits of positive energy, and just by being their amazing kitty selves they bring positive energy into the house, contributing to the welfare and prosperity of the whole family.  So...check.

And honestly, adopting a wonderful kitten like Venus would be considered a win by anyone, so...victory!  Check!

Venus loves to snuggle and wrestle with her brother Cupid, and is an absolute sweetheart.  She's a bit more independent than her snuggle bug brother, but is still good for cuddles.  She gets along well with other cats, kids, and well mannered dogs.  

If you're ready for an miniature goddess to join your home, adopt Venus today!

Farrah is wondering why you aren't petting her. Just the sight of her foster moms has her making biscuits in utter delight.  

She's an absolute sweetheart, who loves to be on her person, and adores being the center of attention.

Farrah can share the spotlight with other cats, and kids, but has a strict no doggo clause in her contract.  All that noise and slobber is not good for maintaining her gorgeous coif!

If you're looking for a fluffy and fabulous superstar, adopt Farrah today!

Meet Licorice! 

This little guy has done a lot of living in his short life. He was dumped on Cornell's campus as a small kitten, and nearly died. When he came to the rescue, he was seriously underweight, and had developed an upper respiratory infection that nearly cost him one of his eyes.  He still has some shine to that eye where it healed, but it doesn't stop him from playing with the stick toys!

He's a little slow to warm up to new things, but he's an absolute sweetheart when he knows he's safe. 

He loves other cats, and any calm human who will rub his ears and tell him how lovely he is. If you have a house with a small house panther shaped hole, Licorice is here for you!

Hello sweet Sally!

Sally had a rough start to life, but is absolutely blossoming in her foster home!
As long as folk know she takes a moment to warm up, she's an absolute lovebug.
If startled she’ll go under the coffee table for a minute but then comes out once she's assessed the situation. She really likes the adult cat she's fostered with, as well as the older kid cat whisperer!

She's a cat who likes to play with cat toys, especially anything with a ball.  Sally is equally happy playing with her person, or keeping herself entertained. Sally does tend to gravitate more towards women than men, but we know that the right forever home is out there for her!

Let Sally be the happy homemaker your house is missing!
