A kitten playing with a shoe three times its size? Yeah, you had us at kitten.
Neighbor Cathy Aks, a Ditmas Park resident who is a volunteer at Brooklyn Animal Action, let us know about these two sweet little three-month-olds – Rumbles and Lilly – two of numerous animals for which the group is looking to place in “forever homes.”
Rumbles, a gentle wise guy, is “all fun and play with his sister, Lilly,” BAA writes. At three months old, he’s a fan of sitting on laps and getting all the ear scratches he can. Lilly would love to be adopted with her brother, the group pointed out, and both kittens are up to date with veterinary care and are negative for FIV/FELV.
After a group of volunteers from Ditmas Park, Midwood, Park Slope, Crown Heights, and elsewhere, formed BAA in 2010, it has since found homes for about 1,500 cats – as well as for some of our canine friends. The organization is not a shelter, and all their animals (here! look and tell me you don’t want to adopt them all) are living in foster homes awaiting adoption.
BAA works with rescuers throughout the city, and the animals in distress with which it works come from the streets, from Animal Care and Control’s euthanasia list, and from owner surrenders.
Potential adopters will be asked to fill out an adoption application, including references, and there’s a $125 adoption fee for cats and $150 for each kitten.
