'Napoleon is a majestic panther trapped inside a goofy kitty's body. On the ground, he is an agile hunter, and loves chasing evil laser pointers, snorting catnip, and murderizing his stuffed animals. When he's picked up (which he loves!), he is immediately transformed into a big baby and loves cuddling and smooshing his face into your shoulder.


Napoleon is an absolute sweetheart, but also really loves his personal space when he's not in the mood to socialize, and he's not shy about letting you know. As such, he would do best in a forever home with experienced cat owners. Also, because he is a handsome and muscular beefcake, he can play a little rough with other cats and small dogs, so might do better in a home with no other pets, or with only dogs that would be able to hold their own.

Not only is he a dashing fellow, but he also has all the makings of a smart and well-mannered gentleman, so he takes reasonably well to being trained on a few house rules. All in all, if you have been searching for a strong and independent gentleman companion, then consider opening your home, heart, and wet-food cans to Napoleon, and you will be rewarded with a playful, handsome, and occasionally super-affectionate cat!'

About PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society

About Our Shelter...

PAWS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to saving Philadelphia’s homeless, abandoned, and unwanted animals. PAWS is Philadelphia’s largest no-kill shelter and is working to make it a place in which every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home. PAWS rescues animals at the city’s animal control shelter that are in the greatest danger of being euthanized and places them either up for adoption or into temporary foster homes. Through its adoption locations, special events, and foster care network, PAWS finds loving homes for thousands of animals each year. Support for PAWS funds lifesaving programs such as adoption and foster care, low-cost vaccinations, spay/neuter surgeries, and other efforts, all of which reduce and will ultimately eliminate the unnecessary killing of Philadelphia’s homeless animals.
