Sweet baby Soleil! 

We found this little girl on 7/16/16. She was barely alive and was unconscious. We believe she was hit by a car. She has struggled to pull through but is now in stable condition and doing well. Her next hurdle is surgery to repair her badly broken jaw. Her lower jaw is broken in two places. At her young age, she will heal up just fine with a little help. Her jaw needs to be set in place properly and wired together. We expect her to make a full recovery from this injury with the help of surgery. Her name is Soleil, aka our little Sunshine.

10/16/16 -

Soleil is 100% recovered!  She is a little miracle.  We could not have saved her without everyone who donated, shared, and prayed for her recovery.  She came through her jaw surgery fantastic. 

At the time of her surgery the wonderful vets at Willow Run Veterinary Hospital gave her the best care possible.  They did a second set of xrays for her and found that her jaw was actually broken in 3 places and was dislocated.  They used heavy surgical sutures to hold the broken bones together and put it back in place.

Soleil is now about 8 weeks out of surgery, her stitches are out, and she is ready to be adopted!

She is silly and fun, and loves toys.  She is playful and active and loves to be petted.  Soleil loves to chew on toys, just like a puppy!  Now that her jaw feels good, she likes to use it!

She loves to be petted and likes to sit in your lap.  She is a little spoiled, but we like her that way!  She is a princess and is used to getting what she wants. 

Sweet Soleil is such a cutie!  To adopt her please go online to and complete an adoption application and pre-adoption questionnaire and we will set up a meet+greet.

Soleil is about 5 months old as of 10/16/16.

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.
