• Breed: Domestic Short Hair
  • Gender: Male

  • Seeks affection from familiar friends
  • Gets along well with other cats

Sidney sleeps with his head on the pillow he brought with him when he arrived to the Sanctuary. He's on the shy side, but approaches people he knows for affection. When you pet him, he'll give head butts and raise his expressive bobtail. And if the petting stops, he'll swat a paw in the air to ask for more. Sidney has been through lots of change, and he's still adjusting to his new surroundings.

Sidney was living in a community cat colony in New York when a rescue group took him in. Before coming to the Sanctuary, he lived with a foster family, including a 12-year-old boy, who was his friend. Sidney tests positive for FIV, but FIV cats can live long and healthy lives, and it's very hard for other cats to catch. For more info on FIV, visit:

Sidney misses having a home and family. In fact, he's a little depressed about losing his foster home. Won't you consider giving Sidney the chance to lay his head on your pillow every night?

Bridgette's eyes look like little golden nuggets framed by her clean, white coat. The little tuft of gray on the top of her head could be her crown!

She may look regal, but she's as down-to-earth as they come. No "catitude" from this girl. As much as she enjoys keeping company with other kitties, she's more subdued and shy around new people. She came to Best Friends from a shelter that closed down. And she's a youngster, born in 2010, so she may never have experienced life with a family before. But she's settling in, so expect a brief adjustment period when she comes home with you, too.

Bridgette has started playing with a few cat toys. And, even though she’s on the shy side, she still enjoys petting, even from strangers. Just don't look for her to burst with enthusiasm right off the bat. With time, Bridgette will likely become an adoring lap cat.

All Bridgette wants is to find her forever home. If you have space for her in yours, give her a call!
