UPDATE: 3/25/17
Diana and Ross were returned to The Cat Shack through not fault of their own.  They have grown up to be beautiful, friendly, sweet cats, and are now available again.  They have always been together since birth and are bonded.

Update 2/142016
Diana and Ross are gorgeous, friendly 9 month old spayed/neutered kittens that have been growing up in foster care waiting for a home.  They have PERFECT litterbox manners, gorgeous markings and sparkling personalities.  

What's the hold-up with them getting adopted?  Simply that they tested + for exposure to FIV.  They are FeLV (Feline Leukemia) Negative.  FIV should not be standing in the way of these kittens finding homes and is unlikely to cause them any issues at all.  You can read more about what a + FIV test means at this link:  https://sites.google.com/site/happycatrescueinc/resources/fiv-felv-information

Update 9/11/15 - as of today Ross is 3 1/2 months old.  He has tested Neg for FeLV and is a beautiful kitty!

Original post:
Siblings, Diana, Ross and Wilson, three 6wk old kittens were resuced by a woman named Shirley who kept them safe in a garage until she contacted The Cat Shack who took them to socialize, vet and find furever homes.

These 3 adorable kittens all tested Feline Leukemia (FeLV) negative.  Wilson also tested FEVL negative.  Diana and Ross tested FIV positive and due to their young age it's likely to simply be due to maternal antibodies and therefore a false +.  They will be retested prior to adoption.  They were re-tested at 6 months and still show FIV+.  Recent studies have indicated that FIV+ cats generally live out a normal life-span and can live with non-aggressive FIV- cats with no problems.

Update: 12/18/15 - Ross has been neutered, is a healthy, active, loving, and beautiful kitty, and is looking for a furever home, preferably along with his sister, Diana.

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.

The first step in adoption is to...

Fill out an on-line application:

House Cat Application | Barn Cat Application

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 www.thecatshack.com, 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.
