Reviews for Cattitude Inc
I adopted my wonderful kitty from Cattitude! When I filled out an application to adopt a cat, they were able to suggest one to me based on my living arrangements and the personality I was looking for in a cat, and she's the one I ended up adopting! I think because they operate through foster homes for all of their cats and dogs, they get to know the animals in their care very well. All of the volunteers I talked to were really friendly and true animal lovers. I don't think I'm emotionally equipped to handle the never-ending job of caring for so many homeless pets and seeing the terrible situations these animals often come from, so I have a ton of respect for these volunteers. They also screen people looking to adopt through their application process to make sure their animals are going to good homes. I think the cats and dogs who end up being taken in by Cattitude are among the luckiest of foster pets!
My experience with Cattitude has been excellent. In the years I have been associated with them they have helped me rescue so many cats; many of which were kittens it is amazing. We have adopted four cats through Cattitude and a couple more adopted us on their own.
Cattitude does a wonderful service to the community and to the homeless animals in the area which has reduced the local population dramatically without harming any of them.
I want to take the opportunity to say a big “THANK YOU” to the volunteers of Cattitude for all they do. I discovered Cattitude after a young stray mamma cat, who was very timid and skittish, had litter of kittens in our back yard and we were desperate to catch them so they wouldn’t be living in the woods with the cold weather approaching. With luck we were able to catch the kittens ourselves, but we needed assistance finding them homes and that’s when Cattitude stepped in to help. Although we agreed to foster the kittens for a short term period because we already had other older cats, it was Cattitude who helped get the kittens vaccinated, spayed and dewormed and once the kittens were big enough to be put up for adoption, it was Cattitude who found them their forever homes. One of the volunteers was also able to humanely catch (fairly easily I might add) the little mamma kitty and she now has a happy home with us and our other cats.
The volunteers of Cattitude are an extremely dedicated and caring group of individuals who spend countless hours providing loving attention and care to homeless cats (and some dogs) in need of finding good homes. They provide an invaluable service not only to the animals in their care, but to the local community. They hold weekly adoption events and the volunteers make extraordinary efforts to be available to answer the many calls they receive for cats in need. The volunteers are extremely helpful and friendly and it’s obvious that they love what they do. They pay particular attention to each cat's individual personality and suitability for different home situations to ensure that the result is a happy home for all.
Cattitude is truly a wonderful organization!

Last Spring a mama cat had a litter of four kittens under my shed. I contacted several rescues and was put in touch with Cattitude Inc. The volunteer who came out to help was wonderful; truly a Cat Whisperer. He quickly and gently trapped three of the kittens and then spent literally hours and days trying to catch the fourth kitten. Although, the mama cat frequently entered the trap, the Rescuer would not trap her without having caught the fourth kitten. Fortunately, there was a happy ending and all four kittens were adopted to good homes. The mother, unfortunately was not adoptable, so she was returned to my yard to live in a heated shelter which was also provided by the Rescue. I cannot thank Cattitude Inc. and the volunteers and rescuers enough. They really take the animals's best interest to heart.
PetCo is the place we shop for our pets. One day I was in the store and a little Calico kitten caught my eye. We lost our 18 year old Calico about six months earlier. I filled out an adoption application on line and was approved to adopt Fiddlesticks the kitten rescued with her litter mates from a golf course in NJ. We adopted her on January 3, 2008. We renamed her Stella. She is a joy or as our vet called her 'a keeper.' This is when we became aquainted with the Cattitude Inc Rescue Group. They're a great group of caring compassionate people. We like to go to the store on Saturday to chat with them and look at the rescued pets. In 2011 I spotted another beautiful Calico in PetCo. We applied to adopt her and that's when we learned Catalina's special story. Catakina was rescued from a hoarding situation in South Jersey. She was extremely timit and feral. We wanted to give her a chance and now 4 years later she finally comes for back pets. Catalina and Stella are best friends! In 2014 we lost our male cat, Chester. I was in the store and spotted another Calico. Upon closed looks I saw she was nursing 3 tiny kittens. I fell in love with the little back and white kitten and we adopted him May 23, 2015. His name is Jethro Walton and he is the best. We highly recommend Cattitude.

Cattitude is an absolutely wonderful organization with wonderful people. They put the animals welfare above all else. We contacted several rescue groups over the years and cattitude was by far the most responsive. They really work hard to ensure they are matching the right animal with the right family. Overall just a wonderful rescue with a wonderful group of volunteers. Thank you to Cattitude
I adopted my cat from Cattitude in New Jersey. One of my first impressions is that this organization really cares about their cats even after adoption. Their adopters are required to update the basic information, like the address, whenever it changes, and should return their adopted cats to the organization if they cannot keep the cats. This organization seem to take a full responsibility of their cats.
And they really support people who wants to rescue cats. When i moved to Brooklyn, I rescued a pregnant stray cat. I emailed over 10 animal rescue organizations in new york and this organization to ask how to help a cat to give birth. Cattitude is the only organization that gives me all the information, advice and care. When the mom cat had a problem during her labor, i could call the staffs of this organization and get an immediate help on time. this is a small but the best rescue organization to me.
Rude don't ever call asking for help because they won't give it
Some 8 years ago at my house a baby cat came down the stairs and jumped on my lap....at was miauwing...was thirsty and hungry I guess...she was not much older than 5 - 6 months. I gave her milk ..she would come by on a daily basis. My house owner did NOT allow me to keep her , so secretly I fed her and let her into my house...as she had no intention to leave...then in 20005 my son came over from Europe and one morning opened the door and shouted "mom look a mommy cat with 1 baby here.."...I told him THAT is my Rani...she had baby kittens and brought one to my house...i had been missing her for quite some time and could not find her anywhere....she put the kitten on my sons feet and left....2 min later she brought another one....and sat down looking at me. We bought a box to put mommy and children in and they were happy with food and shelter. Then the problem came....how am I going to keep that a secret from my house owner...and with the horror experience of my previous cat and babies fresh in my mind...I slightly panicked. That is when I met Devika of Cattitude...she helped me out and within 2 days I had them adopted, but gave them to thir new home after they were 7 wks old. My eldest son fought for my Rani and I was allowed to keep her.... Then now 4 yrs ago my rani got VERY sick...I did not know what to do...called Devika and she sent me to a Veterinary clinic in Kilpauk...he now has a Specialized Clinic for cats.... Rani got infected by a sick rat she tried to kill....she stopped eating and drinking....how ever I bent over back and forwards it was a "no go "!! She also had high fever.... She was admitted there for 5 long days...swaying between hope and fear...at some point she did not even recognize me anymore.......they put her on a drip.... the doctors there gave me no guarantee...but promissed me they would fight for her life and recovery. Then at the 5th day.....it was like a miracle...rani was standing...she had eaten a little of the food package I had brought the day before as was asked by the drs....and...she recognized me....!!!!!!! I was on top of the world !! She is still here with me my beauty...she is more human than she was ever a cat and mind you she WAS a STREET CAT once long ago !!!I owe Devika and Cattitude the life of my Rani...These organizations should be supported in every way possible !! DONATE MONEY...GIVE YOUR FREE TIME if you can and become a volunteer........ GIVE FOOD... Lets save the lives of these cats and give them a good life...they deserve it just as much as we do... STAND BY CATTITUDE OPEN YOUR HEARTS TO ANIMALS AS A WHOLE.....YOU WILL RECEIVE MORE LOVE and UNCONDITIONAL TOO and they NEVER CHEAT or HURT YOU...NETTY adn RANI thank you for all you have done for us !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
