Brawny is a 1 year old neutered male. He is being fostered in Lancaster, PA.

Brawny was rescued from a farm where they routinely trap the cats and dump them far away.  They refuse to feed the cats real cat food, even when we offer them free donations.  Instead, they will only feed the cats 'scraps' including cereal, vegetables, and various meal leftovers.  None of it is fit for kitties to be eating! 

Brawny had a large gash on his right rear foot that needed stitches.  The wound was very deep, right down to the bone.  It is healing nicely, but the hair may not grew back completely. 

This dude is very handsome and sweet.  He is shy, and won't ever be the 'life of the party' but he sure loves having his head scratched and belly rubbed!  He is calm and likes to lay near you.  He is still learning what it means to have toys to play with and good food to eat.  We are glad we found this boy when we did, or the wound on his foot would have gotten infected in no time.  Brawny is still learning that being picked up doesn't mean anything bad is going to happen to him.  He loves to be petted and rubs all over your feet until you pet him.  He is a talker, and will meow at you for your attention!

Brawny has been doing great in his foster home.  He uses his litterbox, stays off counters, and likes his foster kitty siblings.  He is getting used to dogs.  He would do best in a quiet home where he can bond with 1 or 2 people, with at least one kitty companion. 

Does Brawny sound like your guy?  He sure is a catch!  You will love him!

About Kitty Colony - Jenkintown

About Our Rescue Group...

We seek to rescue the abandoned, the unwanted, the unloved - the cats that need us.

- To care for and provide a loving, cage free home for cats awaiting adoption.

- To reduce euthanasia in overcrowded shelters by taking in cats that need more TLC.

- To educate the public about proper and responsible care of domestic companion animals.

Kitty Colony was founded in Lancaster County, PA.

A cat lover since childhood, I was heartbroken at the lack of care given to the barn cats on the farm where I was residing. I coudn't understand the philosophy of many of the farmers - "You don't feed Mousers" How can a cat chase mice if weak and emaciated from lack of proper nutrition or water? A healthy cat chases mice for sport - and will catch more than its unfed counterparts.
We started putting out food and water for the few cats that wandered through and were soon pulled into rescue work as the cats began to colonize and multiply on the property. The first few litters of kittens we cared for ourselves - We were able to tame and adopt out several and family pitched in to help foster the kittens when we couldn't.
As the colony continued to grow, we enlisted the help of PAWS Volunteers to help with the trapping and spaying/neutering of the cats, and several members assisted in fostering and socializing the kittens. Several of our socialized cats and kittens were adopted through a PAWS Petsmart Adoption center, others were incorporated into the Catworks Inc. or adopted out privately by PAWS volunteers. I nicknamed my little family of cats "Kitty Colony" and put together a personal Kodak webpage to share my pictures with friends and to help advertise and adopt the socialized cats and kittens there on the farm and fostered by my family.
When we moved from Lancaster County - I couldn't leave my "Barn Babies" - the cats that had been born, and had grown up in the barn - So I took them with me. These cats are still semi feral, or very feral (wild!) and most of them will probably remain so for the rest of thier lives. In that case, I will care for them and love them as much as they will allow me to - but they are now indoor-only and are living the good life - fat and lazy and happy!
Here in Jenkintown "Kitty Colony" has become a local rescue group complete with our own adoption program and TNR assistance for those who need it.
I also began volunteering and fostering this year for Cats With No Name - a mobile low cost spay/neuter program - and we hope to launch a Cats with No Name adoption program in the near future.
So now along with my "Barn Babies" are now many fosters, orphaned kittens, rescued strays, ferals and adoptables- Living in harmony with each other while waiting for thier forever families to find them.
