Buttercup

Baby Female

Buttercup is a fearless little kitten!  She is unperturbed by her sister, bigger cats, or even lumbering humans.  She is energetic and playful and has no problem being picked up and petted.  She'll surely run circles around you but then will always be content with a long cat nap.

Buttercup is 5 months old, will be 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.

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.

Adopted June 2009

Elroy is one of five kittens born to Hester on April 28, 2009.  He was lucky to be born inside, rather than out on the streets of North Philly.  After spending 9 weeks in foster care with his mom and siblings, this lucky little guy was adopted by a couple and their three cats.  Good luck, Elroy!

Enid

Adult Female

Enid

Adult Female

If you are looking for smart, playful, and adventurous companion, look no further than Enid! Enid and her brother Alvie, were rescued from a front end loader when they were 5 days old along with their mom.  A landscaper contacted City Kitties because he needed to use the machine, but didn't want to disturb the new family.  Enid was placed in a foster home where she grew, and grew, and GREW! Enid and Alvy were adopted together, but sadly their new family fell on hard times, and the pair was returned to City Kitties. Enid hasn't let that get her down, though--she is ready to find a happy new home!

Enid will attack cat toys with lust and carry her 'kill' around to show off her skills.  She  loves surprising her brother and engaging in a good tussle.  After a hard day's play, she will curl up for a well deserved nap before starting on her next adventure.  Enid likes to be picked up and have her neck rubbed when she learns to trust you, and goes nuts over the laser pointer.

Enid has never been seperated from her brother Alvy so we would love to find an adopter who can take them both.  They make a terrific duo! However, if you can't adopt two, we think Enid would do just fine in a home with another playful, friendly cat.

Enid is 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.

Peter has come a long way since he was rescued with a plastic bag in his belly. He was found on the University of Pennsylvania campus, abandoned and scared--he must have been starving to have decided that a plastic bag was a proper meal. Poor little guy was hungry and didn't know any better!  Now he's a healthy and happy-go-lucky kitty. Peter spent a few months in foster care before finding his forever home with his new mom and dad. Good luck, Pete!

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.

Sweetie

Adult Female

This amazing girl was found with limping around West Philly with a nasty bite on her back foot.  Even though she was obviously in pain and unable to use her leg, she limped up to our rescuers to get pet.  She was so friendly.  She didn't even complain when she was put in a crate and hurried away to the vet.

Sweetie was a little shy when she first arrived at the Cat Doctor, but after she got to know people she settled in and seemed very content. This lovely girl has such a sweet, sad face.  She would love to find a quiet place to relax and call home.  Sweetie is shy and would do best in a home by herself with with another calm kitty to hang around.

Sweetie is 3 - 5 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.

Zoey

Adult Female

Zoey, a recent mom, was rescued from the Shelter with a horrible upper respiratory infection.  We rushed her to the Cat Doctor.  With love and medication Zoey was soon feeling all better.  We always knew this girl was gorgeous.  Her beautiful white coat is accented with an awesome stripey tail and little gray spot on her head and one on her butt.  As she felt better, we learned she has an amazing personality too!  This girl has it all.  She is lovely, cuddley, gentle and loving. 

Zoey is doing great in her foster home! She's a complete lovebug who thrives on attention and adoration. She always greets her foster mom at the door to 'her' room with a squeak and a butt swipe... and she is always ready for loving.  Zoey is a voracious eater and uses the litterbox without any problems.  She's gentle and sweet and would make a great addition to any household.  She's full of energy, but not overly so, She is an AWESOME kitty.

Zoey is 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.
