Little Panthers: Black & Beautiful


Little Panthers is BAA’s special adoption campaign for black cats. We love all the dark and beautiful kitties in our care, and we know you will, too!

Unfortunately, black cats (and dogs) are less likely to be adopted. Despite being part of the sweet and affectionate tabby family, black cats spend more time waiting for a forever home, and are at higher risk for euthanasia in kill shelters. This phenomenon is known as Black Cat Syndrome. Some possible reasons for Black Cat Syndrome include:

  • The “genericness” of black pets: Some folks think black animals aren’t as cute. We couldn’t disagree more, and we bet our kitties below will dispel this myth.
  • Unclear facial features: Black animals sometimes don’t photograph as well, although with our wonderful photography volunteers, you’d never know it.
  • Negative portrayals of black pets in books, movies and other popular media: Black cats are sometimes associated with witches, superstition, and bad luck, although they’re considered good luck in England and by ship captains.

BAA knows that black kitties are just as cute, cuddly, and loving as any other adoptable animal – and we have lots of furry evidence below. (Plus, as a bonus for our NYC adopters: you don’t have to worry about these kitties’ fur being visible on your chic black clothes!) We hope you’ll enjoy getting to know our Little Panthers – they certainly can’t wait to meet you!


Rescued recently from a backyard in Bay Ridge—along with their siblings, Ebby and Boo—Linsky and Sturgill are a sister-and-brother Bombay duo who are sweet, sweet, sweet! Currently in a foster home, they’re looking to find that special place they can call theirs forever.
Linsky is the girl, and she’s so affectionate, you’ll hardly believe it! She purrs up a storm, cuddles with her humans, and has so much love packed in her tiny kitten self. Sturgill, her brother, is also a regular purr machine, and is the more adventurous and playful of the two. As much as they adore people, they are incredibly bonded to each other, and must be adopted as a perfect pair.

Both kittens tested negative for FeLV/FIV and are up to date on vaccines. They will be spayed and neutered when they are old enough. If you’d like to meet Linsky and Sturgill, contact Tara Green at!

Though he may look rough and tough, once you learn Big Boy Bear’s story, you’ll realize two things. One, he had a hard time living on the mean streets of Brooklyn; and two, he hasn’t let that hard time harden him. Seriously, don’t let his appearances fool you. This loving boy is as sweet and gentle as they come.

Lotto, The Charmer!

Lucky Lotto_1

A true charmer, Lotto is a young, playful boy who’s friendly with a capital F. He’s used to plenty of action and human traffic, and he’s an amiable, go-with-the-flow, all around good guy. The only piece of the puzzle that’s missing is a forever home. Lotto’s never had a home of his own, and he’s more than earned a special sun-spot, a window perch from which to watch the world, and a human or two he can call his family. For Lotto’s full story, click here

Marco Polo, Adventurous Little Bombay Boy!


Marco (short for Marco Polo) is the last of a litter of kittens rescued with their mom in Crown Heights. He’s a gorgeous young boy who loves to play and cuddle, and as his name implies, he’s quite an adventurer.  He’s got a lot of kitten energy, but is happy to snuggle when hugs and pats are involved! He gets along wonderfully with his foster big sister, too, and is generous with other foster kittens.

Marco loves other kitties and would like to be in a home with a friend. He’s neutered, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, had his shots, and is all ready to go home with you.

Butters, the Bombay Beauty!

buttersMeet Butters, a beautiful Bombay girl who was rescued from the streets of Brooklyn, where she had been living amongst a colony of feral cats. But this girl isn’t feral in the slightest. Instead, she belongs indoors, where life is good and she can get pets aplenty—which she adores.

It was clear from the start that Butters isn’t feral because of how sweet and affectionate she is with humans. She craves their touch and will start purring the instant the petting starts, and her purr is so deep and lovely, too! She’s an all-around perfect companion with so much affection to share. Butter is spayed, tested negative for FeLV/FIV, and is up to date on vaccines.

If you’d like to meet her or schedule a playdate, contact Tara Green at! You can also click here more more info and pictures.

Lilith the Lovely Lady

This Bombay beauty is Lilith, who was taken in as a
“foster-to-adopt” kitten over six months ago, but her foster is leaving New York and will not be taking her. Lilith is playful and good-natured, adores other kitties, and is affectionate with humans, even if she prefers to sit beside them as their equal, rather than on top of them as their cat. If you are looking for a sweet, independent, and utterly beautiful cat that gets along well with other animals, Lilith is the perfect cat for you!

Lilith is up to date on all her vaccines, FeLV/FIV negative, and spayed.
