Facts about Penelope

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: R-
  • Hair: Medium
Penelope is a young Tortie who was born to a feral mom. She and her siblings Lynx, Bandit, and Poe were found in the bushes at a gas station along a busy highway. Penelope is still working on her socialization with guests in the house, but she loves to be petted and played with by her foster mom and her daughter. When Penelope was spayed, the vet discovered that her ribcage is deformed. There is nothing we can do but watch her grow and watch for any signs of distress. We were told that the key time problems might arise would be during the stage of rapid growth from 8 weeks to about 9 months old. Penelope is now about one year old, and she has had no problems with her health. As with all of our cats in our program, Penelope must be an indoor only cat. This is also a special consideration because of her medical history. Penelope can be a normal cat and live a normal life, but she certainly would not have survived if she had not been rescued. Penelope will make a wonderful companion to a quiet family who can understand her needs.

About Paw-N-Hand Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Paw-N-Hand Rescue is run by Presidents Scarlet F. and Linda T. in conjunction with our board members and the support of our amazing volunteers. Scarlet and Linda formed a bond in October 2014, at Paw-N-Hand's first adoption event, and have been working together to help the animals ever since. Paw-N-Hand Rescue is ever-growing, allowing us to help more animals with each added foster home, sponsor, and volunteer. Our goal is to help every animal to the best of our ability. We know that we cannot always help, as there are currently more animals in need than we have the resources to support, but we hope that we can grow into an organization with a large enough resource base to be able to help every animal we find.
The members of Paw-N-Hand Rescue pride themselves on working together to make our environment a positive one, and we see each other as family, always working together to help one another and the animals.

Our Adoption Process...

Potential adopters must fill out an application on the animal they are interested in. We check the application, including vet and personal references. The potential adopter must also sign an adoption agreement, stating that they will have any dog as an inside companion, a cat will be inside and not declawed, and the agreement outlines the items that the adopter must have ready for the animal upon completion of adoption, among other things. Before the adoption is final, we perform a home check to ensure the environment is safe and appropriate for the animal.
