Oh, Eli. You are so stunning! From the tips of his little orange ears to the bottoms of his little pink toes, this boy is handsome!  He's a knock out for sure!

Eli Joe really is a sweet, affectionate boy.  His foster family loves his outgoing nature and fearless attitude.  He loves to be petted and lay with you - on his terms!  He wants you when he wants you and won't leave you alone if he does!

He is long and lean, and has a talking voice that you won't miss when he wants your attention!  This little dude has the sass meter cranked up to 10 all the time!  He is very sweet, but is highly opinionated and wants his way!  His personality is typical of a Siamese, and you should do your research on the breed or have first hand experience prior to adopting him.

Eli Joe earned a middle name because he is so smart that he can sometimes be pretty ornery!  He likes to get into things and discover new ways to keep us busy.

Eli is okay with other cats.  He does take some time to warm up to them but he does well once he gets to know them.  He has not been around dogs, but would likely do fine as long as they respect him.

Eli would do best in a 1-2 person adult family.  He is currently fostered by a family who does have kids, and he does fairly well, but some children may not understand that he doesn't want to be held and played with constantly.  Older children who can give him his space when he wants it would be fine.

Eli Joe is about 8 months old as of 8/21/16.  He is neutered, vaccinated, tested neg/neg for FIV/FeLV and has been treated with flea and worm preventatives.  He has been very healthy for us. 

Eli came to the rescue when he was 7 months old, when his previous owner was evicted from their home.  He is a great cat, and will make a wonderful pet.

If you are interested in adopting Eli Joe, please complete an adoption application and pre-adoption questionnaire on  The adoption fee for Eli is $100.

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.
