Cherubino is becoming a very playful kitty! She likes to be high, on a cabinet or cat tree, but doen't hide. Loves to play with the laser light. She would love to be adopted with her brothef, Figaro/
Adoptions are restricted to a 1 hour drive from Allentown PA and young kittens must go to a home with another playful cat or to a home that already has a feline playmate- kittens are NEVER adopted out as only-cats in the home.
Cherubino was trapped by a Cat Shack Volunteer on her grandmother's property in the Northampton, PA area. He or she was trapped with a broken tail, which will be looked at my a vet soon. Upon input, he or she does not seem to be aggressive, but is understandably frightened and withdrawn at the moment. A sibling, Figaro, was trapped a few days ago and is with her now in foster care.
Chrubino has been tested negative for FIV and FeLV, and has been dewormed and given a flea treatment.
UPDATE; 8/20/16 - Vet has determined that Cherubino's tail can simply heal normally, and does not need to be amputated. She will have a crooked tail, giving her character :-)
She is slowly warming up to being handled, and promises to be a wonderful, friendly, playful kitten very soon.
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.
The first step in adoption is to...
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!
