Facts about Grandpa

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray Or Blue (Mostly)
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Grandpa was found as a stray in Camden city this February. According to the lady who had been setting out food for him, Grandpa used to belong to a woman who passed away in 2011. Can you believe it? Poor Grandpa was out on the streets of Camden for five years! We are guessing he is around 8 or 9 years old.

When we took Grandpa in he had several teeth that needed to be removed from extensive decay, but he has now recovered and feeling much better! His left eye is clouded over with scarring from an untreated eye infection while he was a stray, but he gets around just fine with the vision in his right eye.

Poor Grandpa must have been attacked by some tough street cats, because he tested positive for FIV (a virus transmitted between cats by deep bites during fighting). As long as Grandpa is kept as an indoor pet with regular vet checkups he can live for many more happy years. Grandpa is gentle and does get along with other friendly cats, so he can share a home with FIV-negative cats. The virus is only spread through deep bites, not by casual contact like sharing bowls or grooming each other. You can learn more about FIV at the following link: http://bestfriends.org/resources/fiv-cats-faqs

Grandpa loves to sit on laps and be scratched on his chin. He deserves the very best life possible after toughing it out on the streets of Camden for so long. Can you be Grandpa's angel? Contact admin@camdencompanions.org to schedule a visit.

About Camden Companions

About Our Rescue Group...

Camden Companions is a small no-kill cat and rabbit rescue that is run entirely by volunteers. We find homes for a total of about 140 cats, kittens, and rabbits per year, keeping them out of local kill shelters.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our cat adoption center is located inside the Petco at 2230 W Rt. 70 in Cherry Hill, NJ. You may view the cats inside their cages anytime the store is open, but the best time to meet the cats out of the cages is on weekends from 11am-2pm. Contact admin@camdencompanions.org if you are interested in adopting but are not available during our weekend walk-in hours.

Many of our cats and kittens are in foster care. If a pet's bio does not say they are at Petco, then contact admin@camdencompanions.org to schedule a meeting.

Our Adoption Process...

We have a two page adoption application available on our website that asks relevant questions about your residence, family, and past experience with pets. If you have had pets recently then we ask for the contact information for your veterinarian. We typically process adoption applications within 1-2 days.

Adoption fees are $75 for kittens under 6 months as well as rabbits, $60 for adult cats, and $45 for senior cats or special needs animals.

Adopters are required to take their new pet to a veterinarian for an initial checkup within the first two weeks after adoption.
