Facts about Coco

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Calico Or Dilute Calico
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
I am an absolutely exquisite little calico female cat. I am 11 years young, and quite small. I weigh just 6 pounds. I have lived with my owner in Parkside PA (a suburb of Philadelphia) for all of my 11 years, but am now desperately in need of a loving new home. I was just checked out by my vet, and given a clean bill of health. I am spayed and perfectly litter box trained.

Believe it or not, I can talk! I say “Mama” all the time! My Mama says that I am absolutely adorable. I am a gentle and very sweet girl.
I am very shy when I first meet people, and I prefer a very calm environment. Children, dogs and territorial cats make me very nervous, so I would very much prefer to find a loving home with a cat lover who is looking for just 1 special pet to cherish.

My Mama is so heartbroken to have to find me a new home. Her husband passed away 2 years ago, and now her own Mother, in Switzerland is having serious health problems and needs her help. She had hoped to take me with her back to Switzerland, but the vet says because I am such a “fraidy cat”, that the trip would be very hard on me and could affect my heart.

She is dearly hoping to find a new home for me here, with someone who will cherish me as much as she does. She would dearly love to keep in touch with me once she is back in Switzerland, so hopefully you would welcome a new pen pal.

Please open your heart and home to me. I am such a dear little cat and I will definitely leave tiny paw prints on your heart. I will be rehomed with all of my supplies. The rehoming/adoption fee will be waived for the right home.


Rehoming fees waived for the right home. All supplies will be included.

About Philadelphia Find My Pet A Home

About Our Rescue Group...

In many locations throughout the USA and Canada, shelters and rescues are filled to capacity, leaving pet owners who can no longer care for their pet with nowhere to turn. Many pets are needlessly being euthanized.

Being placed in a shelter is a very stressful experience for all pets - and their owners. We offer a very good alternative, allowing pets to stay in the loving care of their owners while a new home is located for them.

We have helped many pet owners in need to place their pet in a home where they have great peace of mind in knowing that their pet is being cherished, well cared for and kept safe, happy and healthy.

Come Meet Our Pets...

In most instances, our pets stay with their owners until a new home can be located. There are some situations which require a more urgent placement, and in these instances, we look for loving foster homes to care for these pets until a permanent home can be located.

Pets available for adoption can be viewed on our website at

Our Adoption Process...

When a pet is placed with our organization, our staff create a very honest and compelling adoption story about the pet, using the information provided to us.

We then spread the word about this pet's need for a new home through a wide variety of online services, and through local outreach.

Interested parties are directed to fill out a formal request to meet a pet, providing in-depth information about themselves.

Before a potential adopter is introduced to a pet, we do careful reference screening and a criminal records check.

Should the pet's owner and the adoptive party agree to an adoption, a formal agreement is entered into, requiring the new owner to agree to keep in touch, ensure the pet's physical and emotional well-being, and provide a safe, happy and healthy home.

They are required to agree that they will not surrender the pet to a shelter or give away the pet - but rather they are to contact our organization so that we can find another suitable home, in the event that they are unable to fulfill their commitment.

The owners deliver the pet to the new owners, so that they can do a home inspection prior to leaving the pet in the new owner's care.

Our organization provides follow-up services, contacting the new owners after the first week, and then every 45 days for the first nine months post-adoption. This helps ensure the pet is being well cared for, and that the new owners have any support they need in adjusting to life with their new companion,
