SNOWCONE!'s Story...
MEET SNOWCONE!

Wow, what a stunning cat! This beautiful little all white Domestic Shorthair is named Snowcone! Snowcone made her way to City of Elderly Love after being found as a stray in Philadelphia and brought to animal control. Its amazing that Snowcone was able to navigate the streets safely since she is blind and partially deaf! Snowcone lucked out when she found an amazing foster family where she has really been flourishing since being rescued from the shelter. She's now on the hunt for her forever family!

Snowcone is around 10 years old with a gorgeous white coat with pink accents. You might assume that a blind and partially deaf cat wouldn't have much of a personality or do much of anything, but you would be wrong! Snowcone is packed with pizazz and has a lot to offer one lucky family. She adores her human friends and enjoys being brushed, loves to cuddle (especially in your lap) and even drools a little when she's super happy! Snowcone also likes to chat and will meow a little "hello" when she wants to check in and make sure you're there! Despite being blind, Snowcone has no issues finding her litter box and uses it like a champ. Snowcone also LOVES to play with crinkle balls, ribbon, anything that moves! One perk of being mostly deaf (or perhaps selectively deaf) is that she is not startled by loud noses like the hairdryer. And somehow, she can still hear a can of food being popped open across the room - funny how that works! Besides being blind due to cataracts, Snowcone also has sensitive skin and would benefit from a high quality diet and low-dust litter. Though we have found a shampoo that works like magic to help her feel great.

Snowcone is currently living with other pets: both cats and dogs! She is happy to share her space with other pets except sometimes her foster kitten siblings are annoying so she'll tell them to back off. She would be a good addition to a multi-pet home. Snowcone would also do well in a small apartment or loft since she it would mean she doesn't have to navigate a lot of area and is very happy to find her favorite spots and curl up in them (usually the couch or bed). Snowcone doesn't like to be pet too roughly so a home without small children would probably be best for her, but she does enjoy meeting new people!

Snowcone is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love. She is spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. She is also FIV & FeLV negative. Interested in meeting her? Visit www.cityofelderlylove.org to complete an online adoption questionnaire or email us at info@cityofelderlylove.org!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

SNOWCONE!, 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.
