City Kitties needs your help! Our intake and wait list are closed until we can move some of the below cats into foster or adoptive homes. At the moment we have far too many adult cats (plus some special needs kittens) waiting for placement in boarding cages at our vet’s office. Please consider applying to become a foster home for an adult kitty (or even better, adopting one!) so we can move these wonderful felines out of stressful boarding cages and into real homes. City Kitties asks for a six month minimum commitment. We pay for 100% of veterinary care. You can read more about our volunteer foster program here. As of today, these cats still need foster home placement:
Sweetie is looking for a calm, quiet place to call her own. As the name implies, Sweetie has a fantastic personality and loves human attention. She’s a beautiful gray tabby with soft fur. And look at that adorable face and those sad eyes! Sweetie moved to a foster home with 5 cats and a dog, and it was just too fast-paced for this girl to handle. We think she would do best in a foster or adoptive home with one or two other pets, older children, or all by herself. Given the chance to adjust to her new home, Sweetie will make an amazing companion. Apply to foster or adopt Sweetie or another City Kitty!
Froggy was pulled from the ACCT shelter with her litter of crazy kittens. This adorable momcat just needed a safe place to raise her babies, who were all tabbies just like her. She even took in a tiny foster kitten who needed a mom to show her the ropes — what a generous little lady! Now Froggy is all done raising her family and is looking for a home of her own. The poor girl has been in a boarding cage at our vet’s office for weeks. She comes to the front of her cage and begs to be let out for pets and attention. Froggy is all ready for her foster or forever home. We think she would adjust well to most homes. Can you give this former momcat the relaxing home she deserves? Apply to foster or adopt Froggy or another City Kitty!
Sir Harry has been with a dedicated foster family for several months. Due to living arrangements, his foster parents are unable to keep him any longer, so he’s looking for a new foster or adoptive family. Harry is young, handsome, active, and loves the company of other cats (male and female). He would do especially well in a home with another active kitty to keep him entertained, though a home with a human or canine who enjoys playtime would be great, too! His foster parents are really sad to have to let him go. Think Harry would be a good fit for your home? Apply to foster or adopt Sir Harry or another City Kitty!
Kim wandered up to a nice lady on a Friday night and yowled in pain — something was clearly wrong with this young tabby girl. A City Kitties volunteer whisked her to the Penn Vet ER, where she was diagnosed with a uterine infection due to complications from birth. Kim had an emergency spay surgery and is recovering very well. Other than finishing a round of antibiotics, she doesn’t need any special care and would just be grateful to have a comfortable, loving home. We haven’t had much time to evaluate Kim’s likes/dislikes but she is a sweet, friendly girl and young enough that she could likely adjust to cats, dogs, or kids in her home. Apply to foster or adopt Kim or another City Kitty!
Special Needs Kittens
Tortellini arrived at the ACCT shelter with a horrific eye infection that left her blind in one eye. Now that her bad eye has been removed, she is ready to start healing and enjoying life like every kitten should! Tortellini also has a cleft palate (a congenital facial deformity), which makes her tongue hang out in a silly way. She may need surgery to correct this (our vet is researching/confirming), so we are looking for a dedicated foster family for this special kitten — someone who is willing to bring Tortellini back to the vet and help her recover from surgery if needed. This friendly “torbico” girl promises to repay you with tons of purrs and love! Apply to foster Tortellini or another City Kitty! (Previous foster/rescue experience and easy access to a car required due to special needs. A flexible schedule would be a major plus since there will be vet visits involved.)
Rotini ended up at the ACCT shelter after allegedly getting her hind leg caught in a chandelier. We have no idea how this silly kitten ended up with a broken leg, but she will need surgery to correct it and will likely need to have a plate installed. Once the surgery is complete, Rotini needs a very special foster family to help her recover and heal. This will involve some cage rest (dog crate and supplies provided), at least one follow-up vet visit (possible more) to ensure she is healing properly, and helping Rotini gradually increase her activity level to exercise her leg. In return, Rotini promises to keep you entertained and show you how grateful she is with lots of love and purrs. Could you be that dedicated foster family for a special needs kitten? Apply to foster Rotini or another City Kitty! (Previous foster/rescue experience and easy access to a car required due to special needs. A flexible schedule would be a major plus since there will be vet visits involved.)
