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 - Ephrata

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.

As volunteers for various rescues, we began to rescue and foster ferals and adoptables in need of special care and attention - we especially try to take needy cats and kittens from shelters where they would otherwise be euthanized.

Kitty Colony has branched out since first beginning its adoption program in Jenkintown, PA and now encompasses Ephrata and Lancaster as well.

We have several foster homes and our home base for the Lancaster area is in Ephrata, PA.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We operate out of foster homes - most of which are not open to the public, but we are working to open more foster homes to visitors in the near future.

For the present we meet by appointment only at local petsmarts in Lancaster, Willow Grove and Jenkintown.
