Bergamot

Young Male

A concerned social worker contacted City Kitties because one of his clients couldn't care for her ten kitties and needed to find them homes. City Kitties brought Bergamot (and his big brother Basil) to the Cat Doctor where they were neutered and treated for upper respiratory infections. They went to foster care together. Bergie only had to wait about a month to find his forever home. He now lives with his new mom and big kitty 'brother' Carson!

Charlie

Charlie and his two littermates (Peaches & May) were abandoned by their mother on a West Philly block.  A concerned resident took them in and raised them from the tender age of 4 weeks.  All three kittens blossomed under her care, and Charlie found a forever home right away!  He was adopted at 12 weeks old.  His brother and sister found a forever home together, too.

Elliot

Young Male

A kind policeman found Detective Elliot Stabler dodging traffic in the middle of a busy West Philadelphia intersection. This tabby kitten was in a pickle, but thankfully he was whisked to safety and brought to a City Kitties volunteer in a police cruiser (thus his 'Law & Order'-inspired name). Skinny, dehydrated, and tired, he was thrilled to get a bottomless bowl of food and fresh water. He immediately crawled into the volunteer's lap and curled up for some rest and pets. It took nearly six months for Elliot to find his forever home, but once he did, his new mom and dad knew he was perfect for them. Elliot now answers to Soxy.

James & Roswell

James & Roswell

Adopted in 2007

James and his perky sidekick, Roswell, marched right up to a rescuer in Northwest Philly and begged to be taken home. This friendly pair had been kicked out of a nearby home, and the irresponsible owner refused to care for them anymore. James and Roz were the best of friends and soon moved to a foster home together, where they charmed the socks off their foster parents. Before long, it became obvious that the two cats were considered more than just fosters and were sticking around for good! City Kitties was sad to see a wonderful foster home go, but we know James and Roswell have a very special forever home together and will never find themselves left out in the cold again.

Oven came to City Kitties when he and his friend Octopus where brought to us by a TNR group that knew they were too sweet to be put back outside.  Oven is very sweet, but extremely shy so a little extra love is needed to make him feel comfortable.  It take a little while after petting him for him to start purring but then he can't stop!

Oven is 3-5 years old, neutered, FIV/FeLV negative, FVRCP and rabies vaccinated, received a fecal exam to test for parasites, uses the litterbox, and was treated for fleas and parasites as needed.

Slinky-Winky

Adult Male

Haii!! My name is Slinky-Winky, the super-duper affectionate and luckiest kitty ever! Did I mention the smartest, too?  See, I knew exactly whose car in the hospital parking lot to sit under in the middle of a blazing heat wave.  When my foster mommy saw me, my sad but adorable one-eyed stare broke her heart. I’m safe now but I really need a furever loving home, preferably where I'll be the only pet. I like most of my foster siblings but don't get along with all of them and sometimes scare them during my bouts of energy. When I’m pooped out, my other fave pastime is to melt in your arms while purring and kneading away, and I love to return kisses on my forehead with loving little head bumps. Sometimes I play with things I shouldn’t, like Christmas trees...uh-ohs! Luckily my sweet and tender side is sooo irresistible…my foster mommy says I got swagger.  Please fill out an application for me if you’d like to share your life with the sweetest knucklehead ever!

Slinky-Winky is neutered, FIV/FeLV negative, up to date on FVRCP and rabies vaccines, and parasite-free.

Snape, Henry, & Claire

These three kittens showed up in Clark Park and were rescued by a City Kitties volunteer.  They didn't spent long in foster care--all three were adopted within just a few months.  Henry was adopted by his foster mom, and Snape and Claire found forever homes shortly thereafter.  The last picture shows Henry nearly two years later, at his latest vet visit.  What a handsome guy!

Truffle

Truffle

Adult Female

 
Truffle was found wandering the city alone, scared, and cold. This beautiful tortie wasn't cut out for life on the streets. Now Truffle has her very own room, and she is loving the indoor life! She adjusted quickly to her new environment, and her sweet, quirky personality has emerged. Truffle is a lap cat through and through. She enjoys nothing more than relaxing while her foster humans dote on her. Scratch her ears and she will bury her face in your arms, purring up a storm all the while. Like most tortoiseshell cats we know, she also has 'tortitude'--independent with a fiesty streak! Truffle doesn't like to be picked up, and she will let you know when she wants to be left alone (though she has yet to turn down an ear scratch). We aren't sure yet how Truffle would do in a home with other pets; she is being gradually introduced to the other felines in her home, and we'll update as we get to know her more.

Truffle is a young cat (estimated age 2-4 years), FIV/FeLV negative, FVRCP and rabies vaccinated, received a fecal exam to test for parasites, uses the litterbox, and was treated for fleas and parasites as needed.
