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: Willow๐Ÿ˜ป

Willow

Meet Willow! Willow is one of our senior kitties and is estimated to be approx 12-13 years young ๐Ÿ’•. This beautiful, sweet, mild-mannered girl is looking for a loving home where she can spend her days lounging by her humans and getting an endless supply of head-scratches and chin rubs (she will even grab your hand when she wants more petting!). She would prefer a quieter home where she can relax, and whilst she asks for no dogs, other chilled cats and older children are ok! Willow is a gorgeous, sociable girl whoโ€™s looking forward to finding her forever home where she can spend her golden years in peace. Sheโ€™s very well-behaved, and will be the perfect, loving addition to your home!

Willow is spayed and up to date on her vaccinations. She is also very well litter trained and is strictly an indoors cat.

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!

Kennedy, Spiced Latte, Melinda and Chloe

We are excited to introduce the newest PURR cats, all of who were scheduled for euthanasia at ACCT in Philadelphia over the past couple weeks. Each of these kitties has such a sad story of their own, but they do have one thing in common, they were all failed by humans in one way or another.

They all have some medical issues that will need to be taken care of and then will be looking for their purr-fect forever home. We are committed to getting these kitties healthy and ready for the next chapter in their life where they will know love and compassion.

If you would like to donate to their care, you can do so here.

Thank you, as always, for your kindness and generosity!

If you're interested in adopting them once they're in tip top shape again, please use the form below! ๐Ÿ˜บ

Baby Binks

Baby Binks is 8 weeks old. He's sweet, strong, smart and raring to get a home of his own. His sisters, Bettie and Bunny, adore him. These little June-bugs were born outside a Philadelphia Police Station and rescued and fostered by PURR. Baby Binks was the first fella caught -- his eyes were still blue -- and he has the easiest purr. Like the other Binks kittens, he is fixed, tested negative for disease and up to date on her shots.
