Maggie was rescued by a young Samaritan off the streets of Union City, NJ. Maggie's family owns the momma cat, and once her kittens got big enough, they put them outside and shut the door, even though it was freezing cold outside and wintertime.



Maggie was the only kitten left and the young Samaritan was disturbed to see her outside whenever she walked by. She asked the owners about her and upon learning her story told the owners that she would take Maggie home with her.



Lucky for Maggie, that young Samaritan happens to be the niece of our organization's President. She asked if we could help her (which of course we said we would) and then she boarded a train for Connecticut to deliver Maggie to her new foster home in New Milford, CT.



Maggie was born sometime in June 2018. She is full of fun and lots of affection. The only thing she loves more than chasing her toys around is eating! 



Because Maggie spent some time on the streets fending for herself, she appreciates a nice meal and eats each as if it's both her first and her last. This is common and usually passes once the animal is settled into her home and realizes she will never go hungry again.



Maggie gets along well with the 6 other cats in her foster home. She also gets along fine with a 50 lb senior pit bull mix who is very gentle with cats. If your dog is friendly with cats we believe Maggie will be fine.



Maggie is also incredibly family oriented. If you have children that will play with Maggie, she will be in heaven.



Maggie is a kind and loving cat. She is not skittish. She is very smart and will get into mischief, so she needs lots of toys to keep her occupied.



We will warn you. Maggie has a sponge fetish. She loves to steal them out of the sink. Don't ask us why, because we don't really know. We have just learned to put the sponges away.



To adopt Maggie please click here and submit an online application to adopt a cat. She's being fostered in New Milford, CT.  She has been spayed, vaccinated for rabies and distemper, dewormed, and she tested NEGATIVE for FIV/FeLV.



If you're looking for an amazing family cat, Maggie is definitely your girl.
