Elsa and Emily are lovely, petite tuxedo kittens (about 10-12 months old), rescued this past summer near Penn’s campus. Elsa is the cutest grey & white girl, with a white triangle outlining her little grey nose. She was a bit shy at first, but has become quite the cuddle bug and is very receptive to hugs and kisses from her foster mom & dad. Elsa has an irresistible raspy chirp (much like a lion cub’s), is quite chatty, and purrs whenever you’re nearby.
Lovely Emily is the black & white babe. She adores belly and chin rubs. She’s got a streak of tomboy in her; loves to chase and wrestle with our big tabby guy! They’re just the sweetest and gentlest of girls. Both are fine with being held, and will be happy to sit on your lap and be combed and fussed over. Neither is over demanding of attention. Elsa and Em’ have become companion kitties since their respective rescues, so we would love for them to be adopted as a pair.
Kitty FACTS: The girls have been fully vetted (tested, spayed, vaccinated, microchipped) and are disease free. Paperwork from their vetting will be included, along with a few of their favorite things. Indoor only. Kitties must keep their claws! They eat a primarily canned food diet. Excellent litterbox manners. Okay with gentle dogs. Appropriate screening and a willingness to contribute towards their vetting (or donation to a local rescue group) shouldn’t be a problem for potential adopters. Feel free to email with any questions about the girls or to arrange a meeting. Including a brief history of your experience with kitties, description of current home situation, and the name of your vet would be most helpful.

These two terrific kittens are looking for a home! They would make a great pair to adopt together – they keep each other endlessly entertained and exercised, but when they’ve burned off all their kitten energy, love to curl up in your lap. They are spayed/neutered, and have been dewormed and begun their first vaccinations. They are being fostered in West Philadelphia. If interested, please contact email@example.com.
Little Orange Boy: This little man is soooo sweet. He came down with a nasty kitty cold in the shelter, and was pretty sick for a while, but he’s all better now, and we think all the handling he got during treatments made him more attached to people. Since he is so social, we would prefer he go to a home where there are other animals, or at least where people around much of the time. He loves to curl up with us, his sister, and our dog.
Iggy: This little girl is pretty special. First, she has a pretty tortie coat that she is very fastidious about. Secondly, when she had the same kitty cold as the rest of her family, she was by far the best about medication. And finally, she is a smartypants — she used the litter box from day one, and she was the only kitten to figure out how to escape all the makeshift barriers we used to keep them in the living room – we would come home to find her curled up in the office with our dog, with the rest of her family back in the living room! We prefer that she go to a home where there are other animals, or at least where people are around much of the time.

This week’s featured cats are Rocco and Red. They are available for adoption through City Kitties.
Rocco and Red lost their home in a foreclosure. Their mom was desperate to find them a place where they could stay together. She contacted City Kitties and these great guys moved into foster care.
Rocco is the adventurer of the pair. He likes to be the life of the party whenever you have guests and is a frequent couch companion. Rocco is not intimidated by dogs, cats or people.
Rocco’s sister Red is a bit more shy and reserved. She likes her people, but rarely comes out to play when there are guests around. She will happily sit with people and likes quiet time. Red loves catnip, but is much less competitive in her play than her brother Rocco.
Rocco and Red are a bit of an odd couple. They will curl up on the same person, but rarely curl up with each other when there isn’t a person involved. Rocco and Red do enjoy each other’s companionship and will wrestle together with a bit of sibling rivalry.
They have been in foster care for almost six months. They are looking for home either together or separately. Rocco and Red are spayed/neutered, FIV/FeLV negative, FVRCP and rabies vaccinated, use the litterbox, and were treated for fleas and parasites as needed.

Neighbor Anna is looking for a permanent home for a young calico cat she found on her doorstep during a storm:
“Super-friendly, cuddly, and beautiful young calico kitty needs a home. She was lost during a storm and was found on our doorstep. After several days we took her inside because of her super-friendly behavior and had no luck finding her original owner. She is clean, healthy, litter trained, and does well with our other 2 older cats.
We had her tested (FeLV/FIV negative) and got all of her shots up-to-date. We also gave her flea treatment just in case. She is a young kitty, less than one year old, doctor says. We are out of room with 2 other cats in the house and looking for a loving home for this adorable kitty. She is a great addition to any house and she loves to be around people.”
If you would like to adopt this cat, please contact Anna at: email@example.com, phone: (267) 348-4208. More photos are available here.

Neighbor Tara is looking for a permanent home for her foster cat Lucky who has been living with her since last July. Lucky is a big kitty, around 16 lbs. He is an excellent mouser and spider killer, and he loves to play with the laser mouse and catnip fish. He wants company, not necessarily cuddling, but the same room is good. The same lap is better. A good scratch under his chin makes his day. He is quite a character and is very opinionated.
Lucky needs a very special owner. When he came to live with Tara he needed to learn that people wouldn’t hurt him. Sudden movements like reaching down to pet him on the head made him duck and cower. Anticipating being hit, he would come back fighting. For the first months Tara couldn’t pick him up. He would turn into an angry, yowling, hissing, critter. Now she can hold him on her shoulder and he purrs and gives kisses.
Lucky needs someone patient, kind but firm. He probably should not go into a house with other pets or young children. For the right person Lucky will be the perfect pet. He is about nine years old, has a recent rabies shot and is in good health. If you’re interested in adopting Lucky, please email Tara at: firstname.lastname@example.org

This week’s featured cat is Juniper. She’s available for adoption through Project Meow and is currently at Baltimore Pet Shoppe (4532 Baltimore Ave). Juniper’s foster mom sometimes calls her Butterball because she has a bright orange silky coat of fur (a rare color for a female), and also because she loves getting tummy rubs and simply melts if someone scratches her behind her ears.
Juniper was living on a lady’s porch since last summer, and she lost her litter of kittens, so she might seem shy and timid at first. But she warms up immediately when someone shows her love and affection. She can often be found snuggled into the massive folds of fluffy blankets, or cozying up against her new parent.
Juniper would really like to find a permanent home with a mommy or daddy that can welcome her into their family, because she so desperately wants to be a part of one! Please email email@example.com for an application or stop by Baltimore Pet Shoppe to fill one out (and to meet Juniper!).
