Merlot is a VERY sweet, gentle cat that came to a local family as a friendly stray about 4-5 years ago.  Unfortunately they didn't get this cute cat spayed and as a result she produced 2 litters a year for the last 4 years.  She came into foster care with her most recent litter and showed herself to be a total sweetheart.  After raising all these babies she is ready for a nice, comfortable inside home where she can hang out with another cat or two.  She's very sweet and unassuming, never causes any friction with other pets and really gets along with everyone.   In those rare times where she feels nervous, her reaction is to simply hide.  Her foster mom has never once heard her hiss even when meeting new cats or people.  She responds well to petting and affection. This beautiful cat has impecable litterbox manners and is in excellent health.

This beautiful cat is the mother of kittens Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Ross and Chandler.  Her babies are starting to get adopted and now it's her turn to find a loving home.   She is FeLV/FIV/Heartworm Neg, Spayed, dewormed, treated for fleas and vaccinated.

Adopting from The Cat Shack

The Cat Shack rescue is all volunteer and the adopted cats are delivered to your home. Because we deliver the cats to you, we must restrict the adoptions of our highly adoptable cats to a 1 hour drive from the Allentown PA area. In certain situations, 'special-needs' cats, ferals and older cats will be adopted to homes at a greater distance then a 1 hour drive from Allentown PA.

Young KITTENS are always adopted in Pairs or to homes with other felines already in the home. Click here to read why kittens are happier with a buddy!

All cats are vaccinated, dewormed, tested and altered as part of the adoption contract. This basic care (and other vet work required to make our rescues healthy) is included in the $85 adoption donation!

About The Cat Shack, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

The Cat Shack is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization staffed by volunteers.

We keep all of our rescued cats until they get adopted and will treat all medical issues identified by our vets. All of our pets are fostered in the homes of volunteers and we utilize our adoption centers in the PetsMart in Whitehall PA, the Petvalu in East Greenville and and Petvalu in Quakertown to help us find homes for our rescued pets.

Our group also has a very active Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) program where feral cats are altered and returned to their original location to live out their lives without reproducing.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We always have many cats and kittens listed on our website at, plus we have adoption centers where you can meet some of our cats live in the following locations:
PetsMart in Whitehall PA, the Petvalu in East Greenville and and Petvalu in Quakertown.

Our Adoption Process...

We ask our adopters to fill out a brief application. We seek adopters that will provide a loving home for the life of the pet with proper vet care.

The Cat Shack adoption contract states that the adopter will keep the cat safe, provide vet care and will return the cat to the Cat Shack rescue if the owners find that they can no longer keep their pet.

The Cat Shack adoption fee is $75 and includes FeLV/FIV testing, vaccines, deworming, the spay or neuter plus any other medical issues needed. This often includes dentals and other expensive vet work.
