Facts about Onyx (FCID# 06/16/2016-23 Foster)

  • ID#: 10834168-FCID# 06/16/2016-23

Onyx (FCID# 06/16/2016-23) joined his foster family on 10/1/2016 at roughly 8-9 months old, after spending 3 1/2 months in a crate while waiting to be placed with a foster and the streets of Philadelphia before that. He was quite shy when he arrived but has evolved into an affectionate and loyal little boy. He follows his foster mom everywhere and comes running when his name is called. In recent weeks, Onyx has expanded his trust circle to include all members of his foster family but is still quite shy with visitors. And although he is not a fan of being picked up (and we work on it everyday!), do not be surprised if he snuggles up on your lap or props himself against your legs at night. While he resides harmoniously with other foster kitties and the family's pets, including both cats and a dog, he is anxious to begin a life with his own family and home. Onyx loves to be petted from his head to the tip of his 13-inch tail; he purrs at the drop of a dime. He is a lean, gorgeous boy, with bowed back legs and green eyes. He has panther-like reflexes during play time with string, balls and catnip; he also uses a scratching post nicely (instead of furniture!). 

About Forgotten Cats

About Our Rescue Group...

Our mission is to humanely reduce the homeless and unwanted cat population through Trap/Neuter/Vaccinate/Return (TNVR).

Each month, we spay/neuter and vaccinate an average of 800 kittens and adult cats at our two clinics and adopt-out 70-80 socialized cats. Forgotten Cats finds homes for socialized cats through 5 PetSmart Adoption Centers in DE and PA and through Petco and Pet Supplies Plus in PA. We also have wonderful foster families who care for kittens and cats of all ages until they are ready to meet you at one of our adoption centers. Additionally, we have barn cats available for adoption.

Not quite sure you are ready to be a full-time cat parent? Please consider our foster program! You can care for a cat/kitten for as little as two days, a couple of weeks, or longer. It's up to you. Please contact us!

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

Please see our website for the list of needed supplies for running our spay/neuter clinic under "Donations in Kind": We can always use scratching pads to attach to the cats' condos and canned kitten/adult food. Thank you so much. Thank you so much for your support in giving our cats a second chance.
