PUMA!'s Story...

This big, handsome, graceful boy lives up to his name in looks, but unlike his big cat counterparts, he's as sweet as they come! Puma is around 7 years old and found his way to City of Elderly Love after being found in a colony of community cats and when he was brought in to the vet to be neutered, it turned out he was already neutered and also super friendly! He obviously belonged to someone at some point in his life, because he LOVES to be around people. His caretaker decided it was best to find him a home with a family instead of re-releasing him.

Puma is now safe in foster care and is loving the indoor life again! He gets along with dogs, other cats, kids -- everybody! He's just a big, easygoing lapcat who's looking to find his forever home. Puma loves head and chin rubs (well, really any attention), scratchy toys and FOOD! He also has the most adorable croaking meow that has earned him the nickname Mr. Toad. Additionally, he has stunning sea foam colored eyes and a beautiful buff and white coat!

Aside from his temperament, the other reason Puma couldn't be returned outside was because he tested positive for FIV, but he wants you to know that those three little letters ain't no thang! FIV just means that his immune system is a little weaker than some of his "normal" counterparts, but with a loving indoor home and good diet, FIV+ cats can live long, healthy lives, just like any other cat! What's that you say? You're worried about him infecting your non-FIV cats? FIV is NOT transmitted through casual contact, like if two cats share a water bowl or litter box. FIV is only contracted through a deep puncture wound, and bites like that are uncommon in altered, friendly cats like Puma. Consider adding this debonaire guy to your family!

Puma is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love. He is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He is also FeLV negative. Interested in meeting him? Visit to complete an online adoption questionnaire or email us at!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

PUMA!, a Philadelphia Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Philadelphia, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Philadelphia.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Philadelphia already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Philadelphia breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Philadelphia paves the way for another one to be saved.
