This sweet girl is Freya. She’s being fostered by reader Alex, who says:
I’m a long-time follower of L&H, and a couple of times on L&H I shared the saga of a lovely little stray black cat that I had been feeding and have now been fostering for about a month. I call her “Momma” (though her name is “officially” Freyja) because I think that she is the same cat on whom I did TNR a couple of years ago and whose kittens I fostered and then adopted out.
After a month of having her in our spare bathroom and trying to integrate her into our household, it’s become clear that she doesn’t get along with our our resident cats, one of whom is becoming very stressed out by her presence. Unfortunately I don’t have much time to try to work them through their conflict – I have a 14-month-old daughter and I work full time. In addition, our apartment is just kind of a big loft, so there are no separate rooms other than the bathroom for her to explore and run around in. She’s bored and our cats are upset, so I’m now reaching out in as many ways as I can to try to find her a new foster situation or – even better – a permanent home.
She loves people, playing, eating, and being petted (but not being picked up), and I think she would do okay with older children. I think, though, that she would need to be an only cat or at least have enough space to avoid other cats in residence. I’m sure she would also love some outdoor space.
Here is a link to her profile (the rescue I’ve been working with is called Brooklyn Animal Action, and the profile has a few photos of her; the tipped ear is from her TNR).
We’re in Brooklyn, but have a car and could get her to other locations in the greater NYC area for a willing adopter.
If you can give this gorgeous, sweet girl a home – whether foster or permanent – contact Brooklyn Animal Action, or email me and I’ll pass your email along to Alex!
Orlando reminds me – gorgeous eyes and suspicious attitude – of Baby Beans.
The kittens are definitely coming around. Every time I went into the room yesterday, Maria wandered over for petting. Orlando and Mariette circled me warily, clearly very much wanting to be friends. When Fred went in to hang out with them last night, he dug Orlando out from his hiding space (under the doll bed), and petted him. Orlando purred almost immediately, and when Fred let him go, Orlando took a step away, and then came right back for more petting. These guys are so sweet, they’re killing me.
PS: For some reason, I keep calling Ferdinand “Fernando.” I’ve caught it so far, but if you guys ever notice that I called him Fernando, please let me know so I can fix it!
Guess who’s spending a lot of time inside lately? Maxi has apparently realized that if she just gets up on Fred’s desk and stays there and ignores her stalkers (Jake and Corbie), they’ll give up and stop staring up at her. Smart girl!
