Orphaned cats have to start from scratch, shelter says

  • Astra is one of three kitties who were on their own outside after their owner died.

  • Maya, a Lynx Point Siamese mix, is pretty and lovable.

The homeless pets waiting for new homes and families at the West Milford Animal Shelter arrive at the shelter in different ways.

Some are released because their owners can no longer care for them for various reasons, some are found as strays and brought to the shelter by a Good Samaritan and some are rescued from the streets.

Recently three cats were trapped and rescued because their owner had taken ill and died. He never came home again and the cats were on their own outside. Two of the cats are now available for adoption. One is named Maya and she is a Lynx Point Siamese mix. She is now only pretty on the outside. She is a loving and lovable cat.

The other two cats who were also rescued are named Astra and Luna. Astra is available for adoption but Luna is being treated for a runny nose. She will also be available when she is feeling better. Astra is a sweet and gentle black and white cat who is declawed.

They lost not only their owner and home but their original names and known history. They now need to start from scratch and build a new life. Perhaps you are the one to build it with them.

All three cats can be adopted separately or together. They are spayed, up-to-date with inoculations and all medical needs (except for Luna, who is still being treated).

Come meet these beauties and all the other cats, kittens, young rabbits and dogs also in need of homes and families.
