SOME INTERESTING CAPE MAY TRIVIA AND FUN FACTS

Weird Sea Creature

Did You Know?

What We’re Reading

The bearded fireworm (we love that name) has venom-filled bristles along both sides of its body ­— if a predator messes with this guy, he’ll release a toxin from these bristles that burns like heck. Yes, it works on humans, too, and may induce nausea and vomiting. But no worries — the bearded fireworm prefers more tropical waters in the Atlantic. Like a centipede, the creature is broken up into segements... mouth on one, eyes on another.

Cape May’s historic district is home to 600 Victorian buildings, most of them charming houses with sweeping porches perfect for sipping lemonade. The architectural marvels here are marked by intricate cupolas, verandas, upside down chimneys and intricate wood ornamentation with Gothic, Italianate and Parisian details. Take a stroll through these streets — try Hughes and Columbia — and you won’t be surprised to learn Cape May has earned the unofficial title of bed-and-breakfast capital of the world.

Educated by Tara Westover This memoir tells the life story of a woman raised on a mountain in Idaho by Mormon survivalists who don’t believe in formal schooling or health care. What she learns as she grows — not just about the world but about herself — is remarkable.

Ramblings From The Editors

L

Ideas, idle gossip and occasionally important odds ’n’ ends... by Diane Stopyra

ast week, on the heels of a tragic accident on Broadway in West Cape May in which a bicyclist was killed in a collision with a New Jersey Transit bus, we updated you on progress made by Cape May’s Bike and Pedestrian Advisory Committee since it was established two years ago. We mentioned inroads the city has made toward a long-term goal of earning a Bike Friendly Community designation from the League of American Bicyclists. This would include a speed-limit reduction on Pittsburgh Avenue and the establishment of a free jitney service to reduce traffic. Most recently, the committee spearheaded the release of a map detailing the safest bike routes. But are we doing enough, and are we doing it fast enough? These questions were the focus of the advisory committee meeting held May 29 at City Hall. Committee member Jim Moffatt presented a comprehensive report detailing some of the biggest problem areas for bikers and what it would take to abate them. Some of these suggestions were made in a

report commissioned by the city from the Department of Transportation in 2016. They are what Jim calls “low-hanging fruit” — they wouldn’t take much time or money to enact, he said, and yet “hardly anything’s been implemented.” Take the suggestion for a bike bath running from the Coast Guard base to the elementary school intended to protect children who pedal to school. A $350,000 grant was awarded for this purpose in 2014. While the county is responsible for managing this project, the city is responsible for monitoring the progress, yet there hasn’t been an update in five years. “Is anybody raising the flag?” Jim asked. “No, I’m just sitting here eating bonbons,” responded Tricia Hendricks, deputy mayor and city liaison for the committee, who also warned against “mistaking financial prudence for inaction.” We’re looking forward to the updates that Jim’s report will hopefully spur. The bike accident was followed by two more tragedies in this past week — the death

of a Howell, NJ pilot whose plane crashed into the ocean near the lighthouse on May 29; and the death of a Philadelphia firefighter who was participating in Escape the Cape triathlon on Sunday. If bad things happen in threes, we hope that’s it for this summer. Would like to mention an event this weekend that’s been organized by the Atlantic-Cape May chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. As part of National Wear Orange for Gun Safety Weekend and National Gun Violence Awareness Day, Ocean City’s 9th Street Bridge will be lit up in orange. Beginning at 6:30pm, activists, community members who’ve been affected by gun violence, and all people (including gun owners!) who’d like to advocate for common-sense gun laws are invited to join a walk that will begin on the Somers Point side of the bridge (GPS location Route 52) and proceed to the Ocean City Welcome Center at the midpoint of the bridge and back. Thanks to organizer Janet Yunghans for directing our attention to this walk, and best of luck for a smooth event.

Where We’re Eating

Here’s what the EZ team had for lunch this week

E

very week, the Exit Zero crew goes for lunch (or dinner or, maybe even on occasion, breakfast) at one of Cape May’s excellent dining establishments. Then we give you the skinny on what we ate, what we talked about (or some of what we talked about), who spat their drink from laughing too hard, who served us, who we bumped into and, you know, the general vibe. The place: Gecko’s Original Southwestern Cuisine on West Perry Street. The run-in: On our way to Gecko’s, we bumped into Craig Leisey of Key West Tacos, who ruminated (as restaurant owners often do) on the simultaneous upsides and downsides of being slammed at the Shore and how much a good glass of single malt always helps after a long, gruelling day in the kitchen. The hair: Electric blue! It belongs to Gecko’s co-owner Susi Bithell. We chatted about how busy her weekend had been (very!) how many beach days she gets during a typical summer season (very few) and also about how she and her daughter, a Gecko’s server named Quinn (electric yellow hair), accidentally turned up to work in matching outfits. The scoop: Susi and her husband, Randy (who helms the kitchen) had intended to open their Sante Fe-inspired restaurant IN Santa Fe, but they couldn’t resist the beauty of Cape May. No surprise there. The food: Authentic is the word. We chose the black bean and corn cakes, which are suuuuuper tasty and suuuuuper filling, and Jack’s Gecko’s go-to, the shrimp and chorizo quesadilla, which come with guac and sour cream. Delicioso! The seats: We ate on the breezy outdoor patio. It’s a happy spot with bright yellow picnic tables and plenty of plants. It also provides a great vantage point for people-watching and rating parallel parkers on a scale of one to 10. (Some of you have a LOT of work to do...) The conversation: We talked about coconut water: thirstquenching health hack or drinkable sunscreen in a bottle? Discuss. The on-deck meal: We see you, pork posole, and we’re coming for you. The final word: For cool staff, tasty food and pretty setting… get thee to Gecko’s.

Bartender Of The Week This week, Ryan Barry from the Rusty Nail is up. How long have you been bartending? Three years. Favorite drink to make? I love making martinis — I enjoy the process of how they’re made and pouring them in front of the customer. What’s your bartending pet peeve? When the bar isn’t in order because I’m a bit OCD. Dream job? A narrative designer for video games.

The Signature Dish

6:30-2 weekends; 7-2 midweek BEACH & PERRY, CAPE MAY

Cheers to Summer!

Place: The Ebbitt Room Chef: Jason Hanin Signature dish: I’d have to say the char-grilled oysters. They bring me back to when I visited New Orleans and I totally gorged myself on them! These are an interpretation I created specifically for The Ebbitt Room. The balance of umani, brine and sweetness are like an explosion of flavor in your mouth.

Wine Of The Week Sunset Liquors Ame du Vin Rosé $18.99 “Soul of Wine” embodies the sundrenched beauty of Côtes de Provence with distinctive elegance. Expressive notes of fresh apricot, citrus and jasmine flower delight the senses, yielding an exceptional rosé with balance and length. Enjoy Âme du Vin as an aperitif and with canapés, soft cheeses, white meats and seafood.

The Exit Zero Filling Station Ambush Come get gas at our place and you might just get lucky!

It’s a pleasant experience getting gas at Exit Zero Filling Station. Our smiling faces, the cool vibe. Now there’s even more reason. This year we are giving away to random drivers a discount to enjoy at one of the top restaurants, stores, salons or activities, courtesy of the fabulous Exit Zero Discount Deck! If you don’t know what this is, you oughta! We also call it Vacation in a Box because it contains 50 great discounts to one of your favorite Cape May places — from $3 off fudge to $15 off dinner. It’s the real deal, and it only costs $20 for the entire pack. This week we bumped into Victoria DeFrancisco from Wildwood who was on her way North Cape May. We asked her to pick a card from the deck to enjoy. She picked out a $5 discount to A Place On Earth on Washington Street Mall. Who would she like to share this with? Her sister Angela.

Undertow

W

Terry O’Brien’s legendary column... social satire, shameless plugs — and general self-indulgence

as a relatively sedate week here at Undertow Central. No gigs to brag about or browbeat you into attending. Worked a couple of shifts at Exit Zero Filling Station, delivered 2100+ copies of the magazine to 100+ locations, gained 5+ lbs. Somebody asked me at the restaurant yesterday, “How do you come up with so much stuff to write about every week?” I answered, “I just sit down and start writing and the magic just HAPPENS.” Not that the previous couple of paragraphs were magic, or anything. Just… you know. While on delivery last Thursday morning, I dumped a bundle of magazines at Gaiss’ Market in Villas (home of the finest cheese steak I’ve ever eaten, and that’s no lie) and there was a yellow jacket buzzing around the interior of my new Highlander. (Have I mentioned I have a new Highlander?) I proceeded to “SHOOSH!” it until it eventually flew out the window, marking the first time shooshing anything has ever worked for me. And, I believe, by

apiary custom, this now makes me King of the Bees. Fitting since they stung me 250+ times THE WEEK AFTER MY DAD DIED. Fricking bees… Sorry, that bee joke took a bit of a dark turn there. But now you know why I hate bees. The delivery job is fine; I get to meet a lot of people and listen to a lot of music, specifically the 40 Beatles, Billy Joel, Prince and Bruce Springsteen songs I have to learn for my new band, but I digress. One of my favorite stops, however, is A Place on Earth, the

candle and soap shop in the airport complex in North Cape May. It is the best-smelling stop on my route, followed closely by Kate’s Flower Shop in West Cape May and any place that sells coffee. Every week I walk in to A Place on Earth and say, “Hello!” A few seconds later I hear “Hello!” back but don’t see anyone. This routine started last October and took me until last week to notice the parrot in the cage is answering me back. I assume this has been fun for the parrot. So two weeks ago I was scheduled to work the dinner shift at EZFS. I enjoy working dinner shifts at EZFS. But at 9am my wife Cathrine asked, “Can you help Jack with the Cool Cape May books?” Being a team player I said, “Sure” and almost instantly regretted the decision. “Helping Jack with the Cool Cape May books” meant loading 30-35 boxes of books into my new Highlander (have I mentioned I have a new Highlander?) and distributing them to just about every hotel and B&B in town. Ten books per box, each box about 50 lbs. [Editor’s Fact-checking Note: 30 lbs.] This I did not

enjoy. And… AND… the two young kids they brought in to help out? THEY got to work TOGETHER, leaving busted ass old me by myself, lugging 12 boxes to Congress Hall, 15 to the Montreal, and so on to the tune of over 200 boxes by the end of the day. So, if you’re staying at one of Cape May’s fine hotels or B&Bs and you flip through Cool Cape May, just know that each one has a little of my blood, sweat and tears on it, and that I hate you just a little bit. The bright side? Those EZ magazine bundles on Thursday morning felt pretty light. Prodigal chef Greg Morrone stopped into EZFS for a bite and a beverage. He’s currently the sous chef at Saltwater Cafe. He is also one of the first first people I met in Cape May in 1993 as he was then the head chef at Elaine’s and he’s back to cause more trouble. He noted the many changes in town since he left, most perplexing being the transformation of Mayer’s Tavern into a respectable, family-friendly restaurant. “Where can I go to get shivved now?” he asked wistfully. Speaking of dives, the wife and I ran into Wayne Piersanti, former owner of the late, lamented Shire, at Wal-Mart, where we were buying air conditioners and he was buying cleaning supplies for the 30+ properties he now manages. “Much easier on the knees!” he exclaimed, still impish at 71. He says he looks back fondly on those days but doesn’t miss it one bit. We talked a bit about the Cape May music scene and his eyes lit up as he recounted some of the great blues acts he used to bring in from all over the country. So maybe he misses it a little. I’ve recently been having fun with Lance Vogel. He is a pretty good guy and financial wizard at Bank of America. I’m just shamelessly trying to score some tickets now that his cousin Frank is coach of the Los Angeles LeBroners. I’ve also been heckling Karen Mirable at Cape Book-

June 6, 2019 keeping. I was going to knock it off this week, but last Friday at 3pm I needed help with a tax issue by 5pm or I’d be in big trouble. Got an email reply about 415pm saying, “Taken care of.” I told you. A unicorn. Jimmy McHugh of Original Fudge Kitchen fame and his daughter Elizabeth stopped in for dinner on Wednesday. He had the Lobster Crab and Shrimp Pot Pie (uh, yum) and she had the Holy Guacamole burger (extra yum) and an Oreo Mousse for dessert (Gah!). Apology of the Week: For the foreseeable future, I will be going sans goatee (actually, san VanDyke, since the beard and mustache connect, but nobody ever says, “Hey man, nice VanDyke!”). Why, you might ask, would one of Cape May’s most iconic faces make such a drastic change? The answer is simple; my whiskers have been going steadily grey, which I kind of dig, except the only dark patch left sits right over my top lip. I have grown a natural Hitler-stache. So, since we can’t have that, you’ll just have to deal with all this face. Silver lining? I’m now extra-motivated to lose that 75 lbs I’ve been telling myself I want to lose since about 2005. This time I really mean it. While Ostara’s didn’t pick up on my free coffee vibe last week (they still give me a steep discount, which is super-cool in and of itself), they did let me snag a Lee Child-Jack Reacher novel from their little library. I forget what it was called and really, does it matter? Those books are pretty much all the same. While it’s starting to feel like outmoded schtick that Reacher doesn’t have a cell phone (even Robert Crais’ brilliant creation, Elvis Cole, broke down and got one), these are reliably good books. A shame that Child bowed to public pressure and stopped making Reacher movies with Tom Cruise. Guess that frees him up for Jag Off: The Terry O’Brien Story. ’Til next week, don’t get caught in The Undertow.

The Old Fogey

H

Ah, those good old Cape May days... by Jackson D’Catur

ave you received details of your “special” beach tag offer? Not the regular tags, the price of which in some of the larger cities would buy you no more than a fancy coffee and that avocado on toast thing that my younger relatives chatter about until finally I snap and physically throw them from the mansion. No, I refer to the new tags, which we have called (in honor of my favorite real-life Scotch person, Miss Jean Brodie), “the Crème de la Crème” tags. Those are a little more expensive, but come with a tsunami of special benefits, including (but not limited to) the following.. Ÿ Fancy gold-foil “Crème-y People Are Here” pennants to fly on your beach umbrella. Ÿ Sleek, toned Latvians to tend to your every need without you having to move from your deckchair — of course this is not your actual every need if you are a deeply strange individual with some borderline tastes, and if we met them we’d end up in jail. So keep your hands off the young demigods, other than a maximum of one pinch of the cheek (facial

only), one hearty clap on the back and a continental double kiss of the cheeks. Ÿ Patented anti-seagull devices. These are hi-powered lasers that will, when a gull encroaches on your airspace, reduce it to a cloud of feathers and cooked gull fillets. Ÿ Patented anti-Shoebie devices. See above. Minus the feathers. Ÿ Tide-proof deckchairs. We all know the feeling: one moment you are half-dozing a good 10 feet from the lapping waves, the next you are groggily coming to, floating a half

Find Your Way Back...

mile off The Point, with sharks nibbling your flip-flops. Well, your Crème-y pass means that come high tide, if for reasons of sleep, tipsiness or Canute-like defiance, you choose not to shuffle back a little, our concierges will arrive with shovels and raise your deckchair on a mound of sand. The effect will be dozens of little one-person islands sitting just off the shore, foil pennants fluttering proudly. Ÿ Cocktail/bronzer drone delivery service. Click your manicured fingers and a tasteful cocktail and/or tanning lotion will be delivered by drone to your location. A special double-click will summon a pair of dueling pistols since we all know that’s the only proper way to settle minor beach disputes. And the cost of all of this? Well, fear not. The retail price is $10,000 per season, but we will given a 50 per cent discount for a small donation to our Cape May Senior Aid Eternal Life Program. A vial of your testosterone, for example, or a retina, or even a single lung, or four square inches of rich hair (with follicles) or, indeed, a pint of youthful blood a day will be deemed acceptable.

The Theater Column

U

Cape May Stage’s “Heisenberg” is reviewed by Veronica Scutaro

ncertainty. The watchword of today. Economic uncertainty. Environmental uncertainty. Astrophysical uncertainty. Uncertainty is a principal influencing the globe. Back in 1927, Werner Heisenberg shocked the world with his Uncertainty Principle, that the position and velocity of an object cannot be measured exactly at the same time, even in theory. Roy Steinberg brings Simon Stephens’ play Heisenberg and all its attendant questions on uncertainty to this fast-paced production. It is at the Cape May Stage through June 21 (see more at capemaystage.org). Georgie, played by Rita Rehn, comes to the scene as the characterization of all that can be uncertain about a person. Rehn takes this complex role and leaves the audience with more questions than answers. Is she a liar? Is she a con artist? Is she simply lonely? Who is she... really? Alex, played by Beau Allen, takes the definitions that everyone “knows” about relationships and turns them around. He cannot be a “boyfriend.” But he can be all the things that

normally come along with the definition of a relationship with that moniker. He will be a travel companion, someone to watch television with, someone to hold hands with. But definitely not a boyfriend. What he wants to be, the role he wants to play in Georgie’s life, cannot be named. It is uncertain. What strikes the viewer in this production is how the 1920s uncertainty principle applied to physics is directly illustrated by the people and the relationship portrayed in this modern setting: 100 years after uncertainty. The positions of the characters cannot be measured against each other since they will not stay still

and quiet long enough to accomplish the measurement. Their velocity is the speed of light: the conversation races, the relationship staggers and then shoots forward and back. This is a complex play with characters that are deeply human, confusing and yet almost transparent in their revelations. Rehn and Allen create a relationship that has its own presence on the stage. There are three beings in juxtaposition at any given moment: Georgie, Alex and the combination that is them. The dialogue is vast and challenging. The viewer cannot know the position of his place in the dance or how fast that dance will go. The play first appeared off-Broadway in 2015 then on Broadway a year later. Both productions starred Mary-Louise Parker and Denis Arndt in the lead roles. Arndt picked up a Tony nomination for his performance as Allen. Georgie and Allen create a dance having no rhythm that can be predicted. And so the viewer loses track of time. And when the lights go up, the velocity could not be measured and the position could not be identified... a lot like life.

The Movie Column

E

ver pull an all-nighter? Now and then I’m looking for a good allnighter. No, no not that I want to work on a term paper... not that kind of all-nighter. I mean a movie where the storyline takes place over one entire night. Like its cousin genre, the road trip movie, it seems like summer puts out a film like this every so often. Booksmart is a fresh comedy about two high-achieving high school bookworms, Molly (Beanie Feldstein) and Amy (Kaitlyn Dever). Molly and Amy have fake IDs all right... but just so they can sneak into the local college library. Yeah... they’re geeks, and they’re about to graduate. Molly learns that some of the biggest partiers in the senior class are going to some of the most prestigious schools (like she and Amy are, after all their non-partying hard work). So she decides the night before graduation that Amy and she will make up for all the partying they didn’t do in high school. Here’s where the fun begins. First, they

By Tom Sims of Cape May Film Society

don’t know where the biggest party of the night is happening! In their quest to find out, they take an incredible journey. The trip is outrageously fun... if you can take the blatantly R+ rated humor and sexual situations. And yes, I had to invent a new rating scale for this one...d efinitely R+ if you’re squeamish about such things. This film is an anthem for the age group at the center of the action. Teens will probably relate the most. Us older folks will have to be happy with a few contemporaries in

the cast (well... we wish them to be contemporaries). Lisa Kudrow of the TV show Friends and Will Forte of Saturday Night Live are Amy’s parents. Jason Sudeikis is the school principal. A few of the scenes are LOL funny. One in particular is inspired and moving as Amy searches for her high school crush as she swims underwater in a pool at a house party. The chemistry between Molly and Amy is wonderful. In fact, you disregard much of the clichés the film relies on later because of the lead performances. How does this film compare to others in the all-night category? Ultimately, I consider this to be better than Date Night (2010), where even Tina Fey and Steve Carell couldn’t save that flick. But it does not replace my favorite, Mid-August Lunch (2008), an Italian comedy. How does it compare to one of the first all-nighters from Martin Scorsese, After Hours (1985)? It’s been years since I’ve seen it. Maybe someone out there can compare the two and email me at tomhsims@aol.com.

The Answer Lady

T

he Answer Lady invites inquiries from gentle readers on all manner of relationship quandaries, matters of the heart and ethics. If you’d like to send a query, write to info@exitzero. us. Or, simply sit back, enjoy a cup of coffee and contemplate the wisdom herein. Dear Answer Lady I have a boatload of family members coming in for my husband’s 60th birthday — ages one year to early 30s — and I am wondering what to do with them. Naturally, we’ll have a birthday barbecue with all the trimmings in the backyard. I am sending them all off to the beach while I get ready, but I’m not sure what to do with them the next two days. What else do you recommend? — Events Organizer Dear Organizer An afternoon at Morey’s Pier is certainly in order. Rides, games and the beach. They’ll be so exhausted when they get home, they will fall into bed. The twentysomethingscan have a night out at Carney’s and the Ugly Mug, while brunch at Uncle Bill’s Pancake House is a Sunday must for the whole gang.

Wise answers to perplexing questions

They will leave happy and you will get them out of the house, which can sometimes be claustrophobic for everyone. Dear Answer Lady I started dating this girl about a month ago and we are currently, I guess, semi-broken up because I refused to come to her family outing Memorial Day weekend. I simply did not want to meet her parents, her grandparents, her aunts, uncles, her cousins. It’s too soon for all that and I don’t really like people anyway. I don’t go to my own family stuff if I can weasel

out of it. I like this girl — which is rare for me — and I would like to continue seeing her, but I am not that guy. I’m not the guy you bring to huge gathering where they all stare at me and decided if I’m good enough. My question to you is — what can I do to make amends but still make it clear that it was unfair to subject me to that. — Not That Guy Dear Guy Start by sending her flowers from Kate’s as a peace offering. Have them delivered and in the card invite her to dinner at the Iron Pier, making sure you get a table with a view of the ocean. If she agrees, and you must have some inclination that she will since she did want to introduce you to her whole family, then you have won half the battle. Don’t bring up your refusal to go to the gathering right away. Have a cocktail and app and while you are waiting for the main course, be deadly honest with her. And by that, explain to her that you are not a people person, which is why meeting her has been so wonderful, but you cannot change who you are and meeting her family will have to come in small doses.

Bird Droppings

I

Dispatches from the nation’s birdwatching capital… by Seymore Thanu

t is often called the dawn chorus, the conjoined voices of multiple bird species waking to greet the new day with song — but it is no orchestrated recital. To my poor ears the chorus is more akin to the members of the orchestras warming up. The woodpeckers, of course, are the percussion section. They define their territories with drumming rather than sound. The Mourning Doves, whose plaintive coo-ah coo, coo, coo, call is a near constant from before sunrise to mid-morning constitutes the wood winds; the robins and orioles are the flute section. Now and again, some loud vocalist steals the soundscape. Carolina Wrens’ loud and lyrical tea kettle, tea kettle chant surpasses all. And a male cardinal brought to song brings all other vocalists to their knees. “Pretty, pretty birdy. Cheer, cheer, cheer.” The great thing is the existential quality of the chorus. No two momentary slices of sound are alike. Now a Starling interjects a raspy

snarl... Now a Laughing Gull intrudes... Then a Red-bellied Woodpecker adds its rolling purr to the mix. A Blue Jay brays. A catbird mews. A mockingbird chants. An Osprey whistles. “Brays, chants, whistles, mews snarls....” Why not sit out with a cup of coffee and see how many bird songs you can isolate and define with a word or phrase? You don’t need to know the name of the vocalist to

play the game or savor the moment. Like the voices in the chorus, this moment on planet earth is unique. You ignore it at your peril. So grab that cup of coffee. Listen up and enjoy the chorus. Your participation adds to the uniqueness of the moment. No two listeners hear birds the same way. Rise early with a pad and paper. Note each new musician tuning up and try and find the words that bind the sound with cognition. First comes awareness. Then comes understanding. Seize the moment. Make this dawn chorus yours. And remember, the days are finite. Come midsummer, the birds stop singing. The time to savor the chorus is NOW And if you are in Cape May, you have orchestra pit seating. Enjoy. Bring a friend. Tickets are free. Last piece of advice: Get up before the lawnmowers. Or your hard of hearing neighbor turns on the TV.

Enrich Your Life... Adopt An Animal

Three beautiful dogs from the Cape May County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center... call 465-8923

HELO arrived at the shelter as an underweight 7 month old stray puppy. With the proper care, he is growing into a handsome young man that loves to be with people. He is rapidly learning new skills and has mastered several basic behavior cues. Helo would make a wonderful addition to a family that will be patient with his puppiness and continue his training.

REIGN is a one year old active boy whose family was moving and couldn’t take him with them. He is adjusting to life at the shelter and learning manners and basic behavior cues. Reign needs a home that will continue his training and also understands that his exuberant behavior is his puppy outlook on life. Come meet Reign today!

Robert Panaccio, VMD Robert Moffatt, VMD Nancy Reilly, VMD Patricia J. Link, DVM

MAXINE is a two year old German shepherd who lived with a family including children before coming to the shelter. It is reported that she was good with everyone in the family, but was not comfortable with outsiders. It is for this reason that Maxine came to the shelter. Maxine will be shown to potential adopters with an approved application and by appointment.

Enrich Your Life... Adopt An Animal

Three beautiful cats from the Cape May County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center... call 465-8923

DEJA was supposed to be fixed and then put back outside but was offered a chance. She was given the opportunity to prove that she can be someones special kitty. A place to stay warm and not have to fight for her scraps. Deja’s gentle demeanor is what saved her life from the outdoors and is what wil make you want to adopt today!

DUSTY was born in beautiful Victorian Cape May. He was a happy kitten, he was loved, played, hunted like any other kitten. He played by the beach, rolled in the sand. Dusty was special, his caregiver knew he could never part with him. 15 years forward, Dusty’s caregiver passes away, leaving Dusty scared, confused and homeless. Adopt!

KIKI has been kicked in the face one too many times. Thankfully the shelter has given her lots of love and patience. Now she has blossomed into an inquisitive playful girl. Now change can be hard and she is hoping to find a home again. So here she waits and hopes that there is a home that can give Kiki the time, patience and love that she needs!
