Please contact Gaby for more information about this pet.

Adoptions are restricted to a 1 hour drive from Allentown PA and young kittens must go to a home with another playful cat or to a home that already has a feline playmate- kittens are NEVER adopted out as only-cats in the home.

Onyx and her brother, Ebonyare 2 of 3 kittens that were trapped during a MacFund TNR in November of 2016. They were too little to spay/neuter (smallest was estimated at 8-10 weeks old) and released so trapper tried to foster them, but she only had them a week or so. Due to circumstances that were no fault of the kittens, she decided the best thing was to have them early spay/neutered at 'For Cat's Only' Veterinary Clinic and re-release them - at the time there wasn't anyone else in a position to take semi-friendly kittens. However, when the vet at For Cat's Only saw them and leaned they would be TNRed they offered to keep them to socialize because they really felt that they were too young to put back outside. One of the techs at the vet's office adopted the 3rd kitten. They kept them for about 6 weeks and got them semi-social, and transferred them to The Cat Shack for further foster care.

Ebony, the male, is larger than his sister, and friendly....but extremely protective of Onyx.  Onyx is still skittish and needs a bit more socialization experience...but will allow you to pet her.

Both have been spayed or neutered and had their rabies vaccines.

Adopting from The Cat Shack

The Cat Shack rescue is all volunteer and the adopted cats are delivered to your home. Because we deliver the cats to you, we must restrict the adoptions of our highly adoptable cats to a 1 hour drive from the Allentown PA area. In certain situations, 'special-needs' cats, ferals and older cats will be adopted to homes at a greater distance then a 1 hour drive from Allentown PA.

Young KITTENS are always adopted in Pairs or to homes with other felines already in the home. Click here to read why kittens are happier with a buddy!

All cats are vaccinated, dewormed, tested and altered as part of the adoption contract. This basic care (and other vet work required to make our rescues healthy) is included in the $85 adoption donation!

About The Cat Shack, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

The Cat Shack is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization staffed by volunteers.

We keep all of our rescued cats until they get adopted and will treat all medical issues identified by our vets. All of our pets are fostered in the homes of volunteers and we utilize our adoption centers in the PetsMart in Whitehall PA, the Petvalu in East Greenville and and Petvalu in Quakertown to help us find homes for our rescued pets.

Our group also has a very active Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) program where feral cats are altered and returned to their original location to live out their lives without reproducing.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We always have many cats and kittens listed on our website at, plus we have adoption centers where you can meet some of our cats live in the following locations:
PetsMart in Whitehall PA, the Petvalu in East Greenville and and Petvalu in Quakertown.

Our Adoption Process...

We ask our adopters to fill out a brief application. We seek adopters that will provide a loving home for the life of the pet with proper vet care.

The Cat Shack adoption contract states that the adopter will keep the cat safe, provide vet care and will return the cat to the Cat Shack rescue if the owners find that they can no longer keep their pet.

The Cat Shack adoption fee is $75 and includes FeLV/FIV testing, vaccines, deworming, the spay or neuter plus any other medical issues needed. This often includes dentals and other expensive vet work.
