Facts about PeteyGirl

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 9404407
  • Hair: Short

Petey Girl is a 7 year old whose world has been rocked.  She was brought to us by her owner whose child was severely allergic and asthmatic.  She and her "brother" Zane were very scared and confused.  Fortunately we found a foster home for them so they could stay together to acclimate to a new situation.  While Zane is doing very well now, Petey Girl is still having a difficult time.  She hides under the bed most of the day and hasn't figured out that she is safe and cared for.  Her adopter will need to be patient with her and give her time to come out of her shell. We know she is a lap cat from the bio that her original owner shared with us as well as being a fantastic mouser.  She was an indoor/outdoor cat and since the foster home cannot let her outside now she may be a little frustrated about that.  We can't take the chance that she would run off.  She does enjoy sitting in the window and watching the outdoor happenings.  Petey Girl is spayed, declawed and up to date on vaccines.  If you have a spot in your heart for a gal who needs some understanding and time, please consider Petey Girl for your new furry friend.  If you'd like to meet her, please email us at 

About Colony Cats (& dogs)

About Our Rescue Group...

Colony Cats is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose primary mission is to address cat overpopulation in central Ohio through public awareness and spay/neuter efforts. Since 2002, our organization has facilitated spay or neuter of over 6,324 animals.

Specialized help for feral, stray and abandoned cats is a core element of our programs. We assist compassionate caregivers who are feeding and watching over homeless cats by providing TNR (trap-neuter-return) and other support services including food, shelter, vaccines and additional vet care for injuries/illness, as well as educational resources.
We also have a network of foster homes for friendly, adoptable cats and kittens - as well as dogs and puppies that we encounter while assisting cats - that have been rescued.

Come Meet Our Pets...

The Colony Cats Adoption Center is a completely different experience in 'sheltering' homeless companion cats. While most of our felines still live in foster homes, we now can bring them out into the public with our cage free adoption center. Cats can do what comes naturally- jump, run, climb, and play; but only until they find their way into your heart and home.

We have pledged not only to make this a completely different experience for the cats, but also for the public.
While we strive to make the adoption center as beautiful as possible, the cats within our care remain our top priority. Our firm belief as an organization is that every homeless cat deserves a chance because every cat matters. We hope that you'll come by and share with us our vision.
