Giblets and Stuffing were dumped at a local animal hospital overnight by the front door. It was Thanksgiving night in 2012. The cats were skinny and terrified. After a few days, they were vaccinated and dewormed. Then they came to Destiny’s Hope where we found out that Stuffing does not like people. Giblets, however, loves people and just wants to sit on your lap. She loves to be petted on the head. Both cats are estimated to be around 10 years old and are spayed. Giblets needs a furrever home desperately. She has been with our rescue almost a year and wants a lap to call her own. Please consider adopting her today. She is up to date on her vaccines and flea medicine.
Hector is an older adult neutered male 13 years old Domestic Shorthair. He has had a very difficult life before coming to the rescue. About two years ago, one of the members of Destiny’s Hope moved into a Brooklyn apartment. Within the first few days, she realized the apartment next to her had been abandoned, but when it was quiet she could hear a cat crying desperately. She gained access into the apartment and found a horror of neglect. Every inch of the rooms were covered in feces, there was no heat in the middle of the winter, no food or water, only empty dishes scattered around. The apartment had not been lived in by its elderly resident for months, yet supposedly a family member had been leaving food and water every few weeks. Immediately, Hector appeared, running out to the first person he saw and looking up and crying. Another cat, a black adult male was found as well, hiding under a torn couch. They were both skin and bones, dirty, and ravenous when offered food and water. Hector requires daily eye medication because he has chronic eye infections and discharge.
Hector and Coffee were rescued and came to Destiny’s Hope for rehabilitation. Hector and neutered and rotten teeth were removed to alleviate his mouth pain. Coffee was also neutered and had rotten teeth removed. Soon after arriving, the geriatric Coffee was found to be in heart failure and was suffering. He died peacefully having spent his last few days in a loving home.
Hector is now a feisty man, who is big and healthy, nothing like the dirty, starved cat forgotten in an apartment. He wants to be the king of the house, and likes attention on his terms. Having spent the majority of his life in seclusion with only his elderly owner and Coffee for companionship, he would prefer to be in a quiet home, with one or no other cats. He is not an easily adoptable cat and will take a special adopter to bring him to their family. For as long as he lives, he will have a home at Destiny’s Hope.

Kitten is a 9-10 year old black and white male neutered cat who was found as a 6 week old kitten covered in fleas and starving to death. He was originally found as a stray by a family who decided to give him a bath, then put him in an unfurnished garage while still wet in the middle of winter. A friend of ours was contacted and found him hypothermic and near death. She was not sure if the little kitten was going to survive, especially in his malnourished state, but with some warmth and warm fluids, he began to come back and show he was willing to fight for his life. After some good food and basic medical care, he was thriving. Sadly, because he is shy around new people, he has been looked over for adoption. Kitten is not a cat who stands out with beautiful markings or being a rare breed, and he doesn’t rush up to a new person and play or demand affection. That is why he is still at Destiny’s Hope. Through no fault of his own, overpopulation of cats has prevented him from being adopted into a forever home. He is doing well at Destiny’s Hope now, and is a very vocal cat who demands to be recognized in the pack. He is playful and sweet, but can be standoffish when he first meets a new person. But he is healthy and litter trained and would do great in just about any home.
Whiteface got her name because she came to Destiny’s Hope with 3 other kittens that were feral in Kings Park. A wonderful woman Dotty trapped these 8 week old kittens and brought them to the rescue. They were given flea medication, vaccinations and dewormers. With some good food and a lot of love, these feral babies became people friendly and the kind of kittens that are adopted immediately. Unfortunately, being shyer than her siblings, Whiteface was overlooked. She has her own personality and is very loving and affectionate, but on her own terms. She shows no traits of her feral past except she does not like to be picked up. When people meet kittens the first thing they do is pick them up and cuddle them, and this did not suit the little white faced kitten. She is thriving here at Destiny’s Hope and loves to sit in a lap and sleep in bed with her person. She is litter trained and loving and affectionate as long as it is not forced upon her. She is now around 8 years old, spayed and vaccinated and ready to go to her forever home except for a polyp in her ear that needs to be removed. This causes her to sniffle and gurgle sometimes, but does not affect her daily life at all. She is otherwise healthy. If the potential adopter is committed to providing the simple surgery to remove the polyp, she can be adopted now. When the money is raised, Destiny’s Hope will get her to surgery she needs. Donations towards Whiteface’s veterinary care will be greatly appreciated.
