Adoption Spotlight: Harlem

Harlem the cat

Looking for a friendly cat with an incredible backstory? You’ve got to meet Harlem! This super sweet feline, approximately seven years old, was rescued at the end of October by NYPD Harbor officers from the Harlem River, where she was stranded on logs by the 145th Street Bridge! 

Harlem in kennel"Harlem is the most affectionate cat you could meet," an AC&C volunteer notes. "She is 7 years old but acts like a kitten.  She loves to be held. She loves to be stroked. She purrs all the time! She likes her ears scratched. Harlem needs her own human to lavish all this love on. No matter how your day went, coming home to Harlem will make your day 100% better."

If you're interesting in adopting this affectionate adventurer, visit AC&C's Manhattan Care Center at 326 E. 110th Street or email adoption@nycacc.org with her A#: A1018700.
