Peanut’s Story: Peanut was brought to the Philadelphia shelter as a stray kitten by a kind person who noticed that her kitten siblings were beating her up (probably playing rough). Peanut also had a severe kitty cold. She was in really rough shape, but luckily a concerned staff member at the shelter fell in love with Peanut and contacted City Kitties to see if they could help her. She thought Peanut was so special she even offered to foster her.
Peanut’s Personality: She is a sweet, friendly, and easy going girl! She has the most wonderful purr which is loud and long! She will often purr just looking at her! She gets burst of playful energy running around with her foster siblings, but she can also happily keep herself occupied with an array of toys including things to bat at, scratch posts, and little stuffed toys. Her favorite toy is the laser pointer!
Peanut has an adorable little chirp, enjoys belly rubs, and loves to curl up in the sun for a warm nap! She will also lounge by your side and by other cats. She loves to sleep in bed at night, typically sleeping the whole night through and greeting you happily in the morning. She has a soft white/tabby coat with tall pointed ears and cute white tufts. She bounces around like a happy little bunny! This sweet girl brings so much joy wherever she goes and her adorable little quirks are sure to make you laugh!
The Ideal Home for Peanut: Peanut can be a bit shy at first and needs plenty of time for slow introductions to new people and cats. Once she makes a kitty friend, she loves playing with them so she will need at least one other playful kitty in her new home. Her foster mom thinks she’d prefer to live in a dog-free home, but with proper introductions she should be ok with a dog that respects her space. She allows being picked up and held, but she prefers brief cuddle time unless she comes to you for affection. She would be good with well behaved children that respect her space and recognize when she is feeling “independent”. Peanut is looking for a forever home where she can snuggle, play and make her family very happy. This silly squishy kitty will surely make your heart smile every day!

Peanut’s Medical Info: She is now about a year and a half old, spayed, FIV/FeLV negative, FVRCP and rabies vaccinated, uses the litterbox, and treated for fleas and parasites. Peanut does have mild eye and nose discharge on the right side which tends to increase when she is stressed. It is not contagious and does not require special treatment other than occasionally wiping her eye and nose. She is typically cooperative for this if you’re gentle and she often even purrs!

About City Kitties' Veterinary Care: We provide high quality veterinary care for our foster cats and kittens. Each animal is spayed/neutered, tested for FIV and feline leukemia, and receives age-appropriate vaccinations (FVRCP and rabies), and flea/parasite treatment as needed. Since they live in foster homes, you can see our adoptable animals in a familiar, stress-free environment, and their foster parents can tell you all about their personalities. If you have questions a week, a month, or even a year after adoption, we're available for guidance and support.
How to Adopt from City Kitties: Our adoptable animals are housed in private foster homes. The first step in meeting an adoptable animal is to fill out an adoption application. To ensure a lifelong match between you and your new pet, our adoption process involves an application, reference check, and a visit to your home at the time of adoption. Our adoption fee is $85 to help subsidize the cost of veterinary care. You can read more about the adoption process and fill out an application on our website, www.citykitties.org.
