Amber

Amber

Adopted in 2007

This longhaired classic beauty was a catch, but she didn't like sharing attention with other felines. She languished in foster care for a while before matchmaker City Kitties found the perfect home! Amber now has a house full of kitty lovers to dote on her and attend to her every need. 'Fetch me my catnip, human!'

Catelyn

Catelyn

Adult Female

Young mama Catelyn and her newborn kittens were found by a concerned citizen and brought to City Kitties for veterinary care and shelter. She was skinny and sad then, but now Catelyn's kittens are weaned, and she's a beautiful, lovable kitty in search of a forever home of her own. This tabby girl has an adorably inquisitive face and is always curious to see what the people and animals around her are up to. Named after a 'Game of Thrones' character, Catelyn often strikes regal poses that channel her namesake, a queen! We think this sweet girl would do well in a home with children, and given time to adjust, she could live with other animals, too. She is young enough to enjoy playtime and exploring, but also enjoys lounging about on the couch. Simply put, Catelyn would make a wonderful addition to your family!

Catelyn is about 1 year old, spayed, 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.

Cherry & Johnny

Cherry & Johnny

Young Female

This dynamic sibling duo was rescued from the streets of West Philly. Too friendly to fend for themselves on the street, they were lucky to find a rescuer to take them in. Now they're looking for a place to call home forever--preferably together! Cherry (girl) and Johnny (boy) are both active, playful, and mischievous young cats who will keep you entertained for hours. Once playtime is over though, they're just as happy to curl up for some cuddle time. When you hold Cherry or Johnny on their backs in your arms, they curl up into adorable little balls. They enjoy belly rubs, as long as the human doing the belly-rubbing doesn't mind some playtime too.

These young cats have spent time around children, dogs, and other cats. They get along well with everyone and are gentle with kids. Simply put, they're cute, fun, and ready to find their forever home! They are bonded and (as you can see from their photos) make an adorable pair. They could be adopted as only pets or as a wonderful addition to a feline/canine herd. They would be happy either way, as long as they can stay together.

Cherry and Johnny are about one year old, spayed/neutered, FIV/FeLV negative, up to date on vaccinations (FVRCP and rabies), and received flea/parasite preventative medication and treatment as needed.

Darwin

Darwin

Adult

Darwin is a BIG, lovable kitty.  For some reason, he reminds his foster mom of a panda.  She can't figure it out, because in pictures he doesn't really look like a Panda, but in person he is especially bear-like.  It must be something about the way he moves.  Darwin is a complete cuddle bug.  He is playful if you encourage him, but he would much rather just snuggle up on your lap.  Darwin is an awesome study buddy.  He would be great company for a student or anyone who does work at home (grading papers? computer programming? transcribing?) Darwin would also be perfect for someone who wants a TV-watching or video-game buddy.   Darwin is just a BIG, lovable, snuggly, AWESOME (bear) cat.  

Darwin is 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.

A City Kitties volunteer found Fennel at a local farmer's market in the spring of 2008 with her mother and four littermates.  Fennel spent over a year in foster care with two feline companions before finding her forever home.  She was the last of the litter to be adopted, but it was worth the wait!  Fennel now shares her home with a doting mom.

Indigo

Indigo

Adopted 10/2008

Someone found this tiny, malnourished kitten with his sister Argyle in the middle of the woods. They'd been abandoned there, left for dead in a cardboard box. Hungry, dehydrated, and terrified, Indigo wasn't through the worst of his ordeal yet. At just four weeks old, he suffered through a bout of panleukopenia (distemper). Miraculously, Indigo survived after days of life-saving care made possible by amazing City Kitties donors, and lots of love from his foster parent. Soon after he recovered, Indigo was adopted into a loving new home. He shares his home with his mom and dad, and new brother, Crash, who looks just like him! He now answers to the name 'Derby.'

Adopted 2008

Iris is a very special little girl looking for her true soul mate (not like her previous owner who threw her outside in the cold). Iris is a total love bug who will cuddle with you as long as you allow and likes to remind her foster mom how happy she is to be safe and sound. Iris gets along with the resident cats of her foster home but likes to do her own thing. She loves to be carried in your arms and even sitting on your shoulder to ensure she doesn’t miss a beat! She found a wonderful forever home with someone who could appreciate her friendly ways.

Madeline

Baby Female

Meet Madeline! This adorable orange tabby is about 3-5 months old. She is a petite little kitten and has the sweetest demeanor. Madeline was found all by herself as a stray kitten and was brought to the Philly animal shelter. Her tiny, round face was just too cute to pass up and City Kitties rescued her from the busy shelter. Madeline is currently in foster care with another kitten who she gets along with wonderfully. She also lives with a dog who she just adores and would do very well in a home with other cats or dogs. This little nugget of a kitten is gentle, playful, and sweet as sugar. Madeline would make an excellent addition to any home!

Madeline is 3 - 5 months, spayed/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.

Wally

Adopted in 2008

Wally wandered right up to her rescuer outside of a West Philly apartment complex--just feet away from a busy street. Next thing she knew, Wally was inside! No one could believe how sweet this kitty was. Wally enjoyed making 'happy feet' on everything, rolling over for a belly rub, or just sitting next to her humans on the couch to enjoy their company. Now she lives in a Center City apartment with her new mom. Wally's got a human to love her, a couch, and a window with a great view. What more could a kitty want?
