Welcome to Powers Street Cats and Little Furry Friends adoption site. We were created last June, 2010, due to the overwhelming amount of feral cats in NYC. And especially on the block of our street. There are an estimated 750,000 cats and kittens roaming the streets in all five boroughs of New York. But with the help of the New York City Feral Cat Initiative and their TNR (trap-neuter-return) program the number of feral cats is reducing.
All of the kittens previously featured here were the offspring of the feral cats on my block. They were rescued by PSC due to poor health and injuries which if ignored would have end up dying. After months of recovery, they all regained their health and eventually adopted to loving homes for. Please take some time reading their bios and stories below. PSC is progressively making efforts to keep the feral cats safe in this neighborhood. To date, 45 cats/kittens have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated and 12 adopted to forever homes. And that is just within our one block radius. Check back frequently for updates on these kittens and our progress on Powers St TNR missions. Thanks for visiting!

Name: Max • Age: approx 8 weeks old • Sex: Male • Dewormed: Yes

Max was found, along with his sister Maggie, underneath a makeshift blanket trying to ward off an adult male cat who had just attacked Maggie and their other sibling. Max is going to be a great companion. Very loveable and playful but also independent. He loves having his head scratched and playing with all the older kittens.

ADOPTED! February 2011


Name: Maggie • Age: approx 3 1/2 months • Sex: Female • Dewormed: Yes
FIV/FeLv Negative

Maggie was found, along with her brother Max, after hearing kitty yelping from a small backyard where she had just been attacked by an adult male cat. Laying helplessly on the ground bleeding she was rushed to our local vet. With bite wounds to her neck the vet fortunately was hopeful and cleaned her injuries for us and we were able to bring her back to health over the last few weeks. Her traumatic time has not stopped her from becoming a very cuddly friend however. She loves attention and is looking for someone who is perfect to give her what she deserves.

Maggie and Max

These two love each other very much and would also love a home together. They had a traumatic start to their lives and have bonded even closer since. Ideally it would be fantastic if they stuck together.


Name: Lilith • Age: approx 4 1/2 months • Sex: Female •
Spayed Vaccinated Dewormed FIV/FeLv Negative

Lilith is the smallest of her other 3 siblings. But right from the start the friendliest and most wanting to be loved. Her and her sisters were found in a back yard under a makeshift shelter around 8 weeks old all with colds and eye invections, (very common for outdoor feral cats). They were quickly brought back to health and enjoying being a kitten. Lilith is looking for a playful home. She will be great with other cats or having all the attention to herself.


Name: Blue Eyes • Age: approx 4 1/2 months • Sex: Female •
Spayed, Vaccinated, Dewormed, FIV/FeLv Negative

Blue Eyes was rescued along with her sisters, Lilith and Shadow, and also their other sister July who is a Siamese mix like herself, has since been adopted. Blue Eyes is still a bit shy and is looking for a loving home who has time to give her the attention she deserves. She will be great in a quiet home as a single cat or with another playful one. She loves to wrestle with small stuffed animals, especially when she thinks you are not watching...


Name: Shadow • Age: approx 4 1/2 months • Sex: Female •
Spayed Vaccinated Dewormed FIV/FeLv Negative

Shadow was found along with her other sister, Lilith and Blue Eyes. Shadow will be great in a home where someone can provide a lot of time and attention to her. She is very playful with any toy she can find and loves to snuggle up to your legs at feeding time.

Grayer and Orangesicle

While on a mission to rescue four sick kittens I came upon these two under a box curdle up together. At about 3 weeks old they needed to be bottle fed about every 4 hours. (Little known to myself I instantly had to become a mother) After weeks of bottle after bottle they were finally growing and eating kitten food. Although Orangesicle had a brief rough set back with a 2 day stay at the vet, he finally regained strength to chase after his brother once again. They are now about 3 1/2 months old and completely stolen my heart... keepers!

The 4sers Progress

When we first rescued these little ones they were having a pretty rough time. Although their spirits always remained high and playful they had a long road to a healthy recovery. These photos are from the first day of rescue and first week with us.
