Button

Young Male

Adopted 8/2009 A rescuer discovered Button playing chicken on a yellow line on 48th street.  He refused to move until he was escorted off the street and safely into a foster home, where he continued to embrace life with the same audacity. After moving indoors, Button (as in 'cute as a') honed his snuggling and play abilities to perfection.  He galloped around the house with glee and, when he wasn't playing games with the cats and dog, he'd arrange himself for a good snuggle. Not surprisingly, Button was adopted to a great home within just a few weeks.

Charlie

Adult Female

Charlie

Adult Female

Charlie was rescued by a concerned volunteer who didn't want to see this sweet kitty on the streets this winter.  Orginally the rescuer thought Charlie was a boy, but a close look proved she was a girl, but the name stuck anyway.  Charlie always like to be in the same room as people, so you won't be lonely.  She doesn't like to be picked up, but will snuggle on the couch, in bed, on your lap, etc. like a champ!  Charlie loves to play with fuzzy toys and will scurry after a laser pointer all day long.  What she is really looking for is a quiet home with humans to give her lots of pets, food and chin scratches.  She gets a long with other kitties, especially kittens, but will be fine alone as well.

Charlie is 2-3 years old, 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.

Crumpet

Adult Female

Adopted in 2008

A concerned neighbor found this scared kitty in his garden. We brought her inside, hoping we could find a foster home where Crumpet could have her babies. But less than 24 hours later, Crumpet had a litter of four beautiful kittens in our spare room. Earl Gray, Oolong, Biscuit, and Chai were adopted in pairs, but nobody showed any interest in Crumpet. She moved to an experienced foster home who could give her the time and attention she needed, and Crumpet blossomed into a sweet and loving cat. It took nearly a year for her new family to come along, but now Crumpet is enjoying life in her own apartment with her new mom and dad. We'll miss you, Crumpet!

Henry

Henry

Henry was found wandering the streets with a debilitating eye infection that left his eyes swollen almost completely shut. This poor boy just needed some TLC and medication, and now he's as good as new! Henry is a quiet guy who lives up to the orange tabby boy reputation: sweet, affectionate, and gentle. He's currently sharing his foster home with Maxwell, and they seem to get along well, so we think Henry would do well in a home with another cat. He would also likely do well with children. Henry had such a rough start in life--he deserves a forever home where he can be pampered and loved for the rest of his life! Can you give him the home he's been dreaming of?

Henry is about 1-3 years old, neutered, FIV/FeLV negative, up to date on FVRCP and rabies vaccinations, and tested/treated for fleas/parasites as needed.

Ike

Male

Adopted 9/2009 This skinny, persistent tabby boy must have been starving when he approached a City Kitties volunteer's door early one morning.  Ike parked himself on the front porch and refused to budge until the volunteer supplied him with food and love.  Of course, he got more than he bargained for--a trip to the vet!  Upon exam, the vet discovered that Ike had a heart murmur.  A feline cardiologist determined that he has an enlarged mitral valve.  But that didn't stop his new mom from falling in love with him! She knew right away that Ike should be part of her family. Ike spent just a few months in foster care before moving in with his mom and a matching brown tabby brother.

Josie

Josie

Adopted in 2006

Josie was living on the streets, being fed behind a West Philadelphia office. Too outgoing and friendly to be left to her own devices, we brought her in for placement. One look at her crimpy ear and she was happily adopted by her new owners. Now named Cambria ('Bree), she is showing-off her agility in her new home--sleeping on banisters, doing circus flips and perching on open doors. For her spectacular peformances, she demands to be rewarded with daily kisses along with a snuggle (which isn't a problem!).

But with proper veterinary care and lots of love from her foster moms, Rhubarb grew into a beautiful young cat. She found her forever home with her new dad, who enjoys an eager reading companion.

Stormy

Baby Male

Stormy

Baby Male

Stormy is your typical energetic kitten - loves to play with cats, dogs, and at the end of the day he runs to his human for cuddles.  His favorite toy is a crinkly candy wrapper, but also enjoys the cursor on laptop screens, pony tails and can't ever chase enough jingly balls.  He is old enough to get enjoy the effects of catnip and when he has a pile he likes it but doesn't go totally crazy.

Stormy is just fantastic. He is very cuddly and will come bounding across the room, up on the your shoulder and wrap his arms around your face (no teeth, no claws) then curl in under your chin, purring, ready to play.  He is just so great!

Stormy is 3.5 months old, 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.

Todd

Adult Male

Todd

Adult Male

Todd was found sitting on a small residential block just sitting calmly by a city kitties volunteer. When she crouched down and said 'here kitty' he began to get up and she thought he was going to run away. Instead, he let out a happy little meow and started running towards her, jumped in her arms and immediately started head-butting and hugging her. 

Since being inside, Todd is nothing but love. He is happiest being picked up and held with his face pressed against your cheek. If you love cat hugs, then you will love Todd. He also loves to play. If you toss a toy, Todd will chase it and bat it around. If you dangle a string, he's jumping to grab it. He is currently being fostered with other cats and a large dog and gets along great with all of them.

Todd is 3-5, 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.
