Izzy was rescued from an alley behind CVS on 53rd St. in Hyde Park in late April. Dehydrated and severely emaciated, she was admitted immediately to the vet. The vet estimated her to be 9 months old; she hit their scales at only a few pounds ... but with some vet care and lots of love and groceries from her foster mom, Izzy is making a comeback.

She is gaining weight gradually and consistently. She loves tummy and chin rubs -- ideally at the same time. She purrs and rubs and rolls, but can often be found just sitting on her pillow, smiling. She's so glad to be loved and cared for.

Izzy has tested neg/neg. She is a sweet and gentle little girl and very keen to play with her foster kitty sibs, so would be a lovely addition to a household with a resident cat. Please apply to adopt Izzy by emailing

Thanks to recent donors James M. and Mike H. (of COURSE) and also to Christine P., who sent in a donation to mark the two-year "gotchaversary" of Winston (once up a time, Templeton).  Thanks, donors. We do not receive any grants or any other forms of income. Your dollars go directly to veterinary care for our charges.
