Welcome to Itty Bitty Kitty, Bay Ridge, Brooklyn
Over the years, IBKNY has placed many cats and kittens into loving, furever homes. We are grateful for our fosters who help us ensure that the cats are ready to go into their adopted homes, and to the many adopters who have opened their hearts and homes to give these sweet kitties a chance at the VIP life.
Remember this sweet and precious girl, Priscilla? Well, has been adopted and is settling in to her new furever home!
Hers is a sad tale: She was adopted from IBKNY in 2017, and had a close bond with her adopter, who is heartbroken to return her to us, as they were forced to leave their home behind and were unable to take her with.
Thanks to the support of our amazing foster and generous donations from the community, we are able to save lives and place kitties like Priscilla with the purrfect adopters.

Great news! Our (Queen) Victoria, a cozy new palace to call home! We are so excited that Victoria has met her royal match, with a lovely local adopter who is pampering her and helping her settle in and warm up to her new VIP life. Her new subjects have anointed her Dinah, after Alice's cat in Alice in Wonderland, and she's now a mush of a lovebug, accepting belly rubs and has been officially crowned The Best Cat.
We were fortunate to have a lot of applications for this sweet little girl, and we have other cats who are equally lovely and deserving of the royal treatment, so please consider fostering or adopting with us!
Rocco has been IBKNY’s long-time ambassador, but we're thrilled to say that this sweet love bug has finally found his furever home, and it is one with a purpose! This special boy is BFFs (best feline friends) and therapy companion for a local human. They have formed a special bond and are inseparable.
Rocco is a fantastic, big orange boy. He's an older gentleman and he is also FIV+.
But we never gave up on him, and he never gave up on us. And now this big-hearted gorgeous ginger tabby has his perfect human. Everyone deserves a chance at love, and this boy has found his loving home and he is giving his love right back.
Our hearts were almost broken when we first met Pretty Poppy and Perfect Pansy! These two gorgeous girls were discovered by a local kind soul who noticed these two new comers coming to her feeding station for community cats. These girls had clearly been someone's pets before they were turned out onto the streets to fend for themselves. Luckily, that's where Itty Bitty Kitty came in. We arrived on the scene and scooped these two friendly girls up. See what Love can do!
But now these girls have been adopted together! They have found the warm home and loving family they deserve.

Lord Cleophus, from abandoned kitten to king of the roost!
Cleo was found by a good Samaritan who was out walking her dog and heard Cleo's pitiful cries coming from under a car on Bath Avenue. Cleo is FIV+. But despite this tough start to life, Cleo has found his furever home!
IBKNY is so grateful for adopters Lilly and Athina who stepped up to give this sweet young kitten a forever home. They are giving Cleo the VIP treatment!

Pachinko, the Adorable tuxedo boy has found his match! This friendly young gent has gone from trying to survive the mean streets of Bay Ridge to living the VIP life with a local adopter. Pachinko takes his name from a Japanese pinball game, and like the game, Pachinko is an fun boy full of energy and life and we can't wait to post updates of this sweet tuxie living it up with his new furever family. You're a winner, baby!

Aphrodite is the name of an Ancient Greek Goddess associated with love and beauty. Thanks to the amazing community member who saw Aprhodite's light and has given her her #furever home!
She's getting the VIP treatment in her new home, and she loves playing with her feline sibling, too!
We had a number of applications for Aphrodite, and even though she's been adopted, we still have cats who need loving, forever homes.

We are so thrilled to say that this sweet and charming boy has finally found his forever home where he can grow and thrive!

What a lucky boy!
When locals Natasha and Jason decided to add a furry friend to their home to help keep their other rescue, Vivi, company, they came to IBKNY. They met many of the kitties but one made a special impression: Sammy.
Natasha and Jason couldn't get Sammy out of their heads, and even though Sammy has a chronic nasal condition which causes him to have messy sneezes, they decided to give this boy a chance and the good life.
What started out was an attempt at being a foster family for Sammy quickly became a #FosterFail as Sammy won them over with his fluffy charm. Sammy is now a snuggly lap cat, and with some special attention and working with a great local vet, his chronic sinus condition has improved tremendously and he breathes with a clear nose. Sammy will never know another rough day in a shelter or on the streets, he's found his furever home with Jason, Natasha and Vivi. They're even started fostering other kittens, and Sammy loves to be an uncle.
Sammy! Fluff of love!
Thor is a sweet little guy who was with IBKNY until he found the purrfect family to call his own!
Thank you to Heather, Bob and especially Zach for adopting Thor and giving him a beautiful, loving home! As you can see from this pic, Thor has made a conquest and has claimed Zach’s back as his throne! Like the superhero he is named after, he is fearless and full of energy (and absolutely adorable!)
We are so happy for Thor and grateful to his new family! May all our kitties find such a lovely furever home to call their own.
Thor! A purrfectly marvel-ous character!
When Anne-Marie was looking for a new furry companion, she came to IBKNY where she saw Johnny. He was looking sad and lonely in his cage, watching Anne-Marie and her family meeting all the other kitties. But Johnny is not just a good-looking ginger boy, he's smart! He knew this was his opportunity, and he immediately started purring when George opened the cage to introduce Johnny to the family. He's so friendly and sweet..he's become part of the family and is a social boy. Anne-Marie says that Johnny "loves everyone who visits us. He has a really mischievous personality, loves to play and gives kisses. He makes every day fun!"
Thanks to Anne-Marie C. and her family for giving Johnny the chance to become the charming, friendly ginger he was always meant to be!
A purrfect example of a match made in Heaven! This beautiful Angel (with her extraordinary eyes!) was shy when she was a resident at Itty Bitty Kitty! She would retreat to the back of her crate. Nancy, a longtime volunteer fell in love with her and decided to give this girl a chance at a furever home. Nancy had also adopted Panda, an adorable fluffy tux, from Itty Bitty Kitty about 3 years ago.
Angel who was once so shy, now enjoys frolicking with her best buddy Panda and is doing great with her new family! Less shy, she sleeps with Nancy and loves to cuddle with her adopted siblings, Panda, Red and Baby!
The wonder of adoption that allowed Angel’s playful personality to emerge!
Thanks to Nancy for giving this girl the space and purrfect place to call home!
Meet Harrington, Wurlitzer, Baby Grand and Claire de Lune, the 92st Street kittens! These tiny furballs were discovered mewing away in the basement of a building on 91st street here in #BayRidge by a kind neighbor. Mama was nowhere in sight. The neighbor was concerned about their safety in the spot where she found them, so we scooped these little nuggets up, but we will be going back to try to get mama, too! Once these little guys are a couple of months old, we will be processing applications to adopt them in pairs.
In the meantime, please consider helping sponsor these cuties. Your contribution helps defer the cost of kitten milk and vet costs. Please consider giving and sharing this post far and wide!
As always, we are looking for fosters and adopters, so be sure to visit our website and fill out an application in the Adopt section.
