ADOPT

Cats Looking For Their Forever home

Looking for a new best friend? Check out the kitties below!

The adoption fee for adult cats is $50, and for kittens it's $90. This helps us cover:

  • The vet costs needed to get them in tiptop shape and ready to be adopted
  • A stylish collar

We also strongly recommend that our adopters consider getting two cats, especially if you plan on getting kittens! We've found that having two cats is about the same amount of work as having one cat, but comes with a number of benefits:

  • It gives your cat a buddy to play and socialize with. This really helps them not get bored and improves their emotional well being
  • You get twice the cuddles and love
  • We will waive the adoption fee for the second cat if you choose to do this!

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at contact@purrphilly.com!

You can check out our cats who have already found a home on our PURR Alumni page.

๐Ÿ˜ป Featured Pet: Bandit, the Handsome Pirate ๐Ÿ˜ป

Perpetually winking after a successful eye surgery!

Taking a cat nap

Hi, my name is Bandit! I am a big, handsome black cat with two features that make me really special. The first is the tip of my tail is white, which is really cool, and I only have one eye, which makes it look like I'm always winking at you! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have had a pretty tough year and am hoping that you will take the time to read my story and maybe consider opening up your home to me.

I am approximately six years old and I lived almost my entire life in the big house of a very nice lady. I was well fed and cared for, but she had so many cats that most of us had to stay in cages all of the time. Unfortunately, earlier this year, something happened to my owner and all of us had to find new homes, which was a really huge endeavor considering there were over 50 cats!

At that time, I was acting so scared that everybody got the impression I was semi-feral, so me, and a few of my cat buddies, found homes at an outdoor sanctuary.

Unfortunately, I'm not an outdoor kind of cat and being there got me so stressed out that I came down with a terrible upper respiratory infection that ended up causing me to have to have one of my eyes removed! I think it makes me look like a dashing pirate.

The positive side is that while I was recovering from my surgery, my caretakers realized that I wasn't actually feral, just a scared cat who had had gone through some enormous life changes!

After my surgery, I went to live with a very nice foster family, but for the first couple weeks I was still so scared that I just hid under the bed. Pretty soon, however, I realized that everything was okay and I didn't need to be scared, so I slowly started venturing out.

Now, I spend every waking moment with my foster family. I follow them everywhere, watch tv with them, and I even get to sleep in bed with them. It's awesome! ๐Ÿ˜ธ

The one downside is that my foster family has quite a few other pets who are getting a little bit annoyed with me. They have started swatting at me and even though my foster mom says it is just because they are jealous, it still hurts. I wish that I had my own family with just one or two other pets.

I love everybody, whether it be cats, dogs, kids or adults. I have completely come out of my shell and I definitely need to go to a home where I can sit on furniture and sleep in bed with my owners! I also really like to eat, especially yummy wet food!

Please, please, please consider giving me that perfect forever home of my own. I promise I will give you unconditional love and will show you how special I am!

If you want to meet me and let me win your heart, please please fill out the adoption application below. ๐Ÿ˜บ If you have any questions, please email contact@purrphilly.com!

Ethel

Ethel is approximately 8 years old and has had an interesting life. About 4 years ago she was rescued from the streets of Kensington after her family kicked her out of the house. Her behavior indicated that she may have been mistreated (kicked) as she would flinch and swat if you walked by her very quickly.

Ethel and another kitty from the same area went to live with a family in Virginia. Unfortunately, it was discovered that Ethel and the other kitty, a really sweet submissive kitty named Lucy, did not get along at all! The fighting between them got worse and worse and after a couple years of trying to make it work, it got so bad that we decided we needed to rehome her. Since that time, she has been living with one of our volunteers who has a number of resident cats.

Ethel has gotten so much better with her swatting (although in full disclosure, if you run by her quickly she occasionally still does swat). The big problem though is the other cats who unfortunately just don't seem to like her.

She has become a very, very affectionate cat and always wants to be in the room with people and she really deserves her own forever home. However, the ideal situation for her would be a home with no other pets. Her occasionally swatting also eliminates potential adopters with young children from the mix!

It is going to be tough to find that perfect mix of kindness, patience and compassion but we believe there is somebody out there for her!! Is that person you??

Tabitha

Poor little Tabitha (formerly known as Tibbles) was surrendered to ACCT this past week by her owner of 9 years. During those entire 9 years, this sweet girl never once saw a vet. According to her surrender paperwork, she started having issues with her mouth about a month ago and eventually stopped eating.

Instead of finally taking the kitty to a vet, her owner surrendered her to ACCT to be euthanized ๐Ÿ˜ฟ. Because of her condition and the fact that ACCT was at max-capacity, Tabitha was scheduled to be surrendered at 5:00 pm this past Sunday. Tabitha had a lot of people in her corner, however, and a miracle was pulled off that resulted in her being saved.

Once Tabitha was out of ACCT, the urgency wasn't over since she had not eaten in days. PURR was able to get her into our awesome vet for dental surgery the very next day. Tabitha only had to have four teeth removed but these teeth were chipped and had become infected, clearly causing her a great deal of pain. Although we will never know for sure, it is possible that the chipped teeth were caused by trauma inflicted on this sweet cat.

On a more positive note, Tabitha is already starting to feel better and she finally ate today! She is very, very quiet and very, very sweet. Fortunately, her vet bill was not too crazy but since we are entirely donor funded, every expense takes its toll. Thankfully, our donors came through and helped us get her the care she needed!

Thank you to the entire team who came together at a moment's notice to help save this sweet kitty. Her original human may have completely let her down, but because of the amazing group of people who saved her, she is on her way to finding a home where she will be cherished, as she deserves.

We are currently desperately looking for a foster or an adopter for sweet Tabitha, so please continue sharing her story and keeping her in your prayers. Together, I know we can find Tabitha a home where she will know what it is liked to be loved.

She is fully vetted and she has completely recovered from her mouth issues. She is such a sweetheart, one of the most low maintenance cats I have ever met. She only eats dry food and has a very quiet and gentle personality. She loves to be pet but doesnโ€™t solicit attention. She gets along great with other cats, too. Please consider giving Tabitha a forever home where she will be cared for and loved!
