Hi, I am Beekeeper Phil! I’m not much of a beekeeper. In fact, I don’t even know what a bee is, but I’d love to be the keeper of your heart in exchange for food, playtime, petting, and more food of course! I’m a medium size (~9 lb) 10-11 month old kitty. I get along with other cats, but I will most likely eat their leftover food (so it’s best if your other kitty has scheduled feedings, like I do!). I would like to have another kitty friend, but this is not a requirement if you make time to play with me!
I am a sweet kitty and I don’t mind being held for short periods of time, but I prefer to be on my own two feet! I am so very playful! Right now, my favorite toy is the da bird feather toy! I love jumping and standing up to catch the feather toy, because it is a real bird after all. I like to be pet on my head, cheeks, neck, but not my belly! I’m fine with being alone during the day while you are at work, but when you’re home my favorite place is to be wherever you are! I’ll sleep on your bed, follow you to the bathroom, follow you to the kitchen, and of course, I’ll be right under your feet when you’re preparing my food! I sometimes get overstimulated around food and occasionally nip at the toes on my back right paw. My foster mommy is working with me to help me prevent this behavior.
Do you have soft blankets in your home? I love to burrow under blankets and/or smush my face and knead biscuits out of your blanket!
Come soon to meet me and know more about me!
In the month that I was at the shelter, I was stressed and sick. After lots of testing and a diet change, the wonderful PAWS staff concluded it was stress that was making me sick, so once I got healthy enough, I was able to leave the shelter and go to a foster home! Right now, I’m on a special prescription diet to maintain my digestive health, but I am hoping to transition to a normal diet very soon!
Come soon to meet me and know more about me!

PAWS is dedicated to saving the lives of Philadelphia's homeless, abandoned and unwanted animals and is working to make Philadelphia a city in which every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home.
