No one gets left behind. Shouldn’t that hold true for all living creatures? Unfortunately, for this guy that was not the case. Prince’s family got evicted from their home and left him alone and abandoned on the streets. Not knowing how to survive outside, Prince began pawing at the doors of the neighbors until finally someone extended their hand. Now safely back inside, Prince took no time to get acclimated. Born in May of 2016, he loves attention and will butt his head right in to your hand to get it. He is a handsome tiger boy with beautiful green eyes and a lot of personality. Full of kitten spirit, he sometimes doesn’t realize just how big he is! Prince is vaccinated, altered, FeLV/FIV tested negative and microchipped. If you are interested in making Prince part of your family, please complete our Pre-adoption application at or call Lauren at S.T.A.R.T. at 973-785-1245.
As sweet as she is striking, 6-year-old Bijou loves to play and explore, and is curious about absolutely everything. Whether it’s sniffing at whatever comes into her foster home or sitting at the window to watch the birds fly by and the squirrels climb trees. Surrendered after her owner’ death, bouncy Bijou loves running around the house and chilling with the other furry, four-footed members of the household. Although not really a “lap” cat, she does cozy up to her foster mom on the couch when she needs some loving and enjoys lying next to her in bed at night. To meet this marvelous miss, please complete our Pre-adoption application at or call Marianne at S.T.A.R.T. at 973-785-1245.  Bijou is vaccinated, altered, FeLV/FIV tested negative and microchipped.
