Meow! My name is Josie
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with cats.
Josie is a very sweet young lady born in mid 2008 who loves both people and other felines. She showed up at the home of a cat lover and was believed to have strayed from a nearby farm with an uncontrolled cat population. She was initially spayed and released back outside, but remained outdoors at the home of her rescuer, until there was room for her at the Cat Shack. She then came into foster care with a much older male cat whom she resembled closely and who was her constant companion. Sadly, it was soon recognized that the older cat was suffering from cancer. Josie remained constantly by his side until he could go on no longer.
Josie is now coping well in foster care with multiple other cats but has not yet found another special buddy. She is hoping to be adopted to a loving home where there is another cat anxious to have a feline companion.
Josie is a gentle cat with a very mild temperament. She loves to be petted and softly knead with her feet. She may be mildly bashful at first but will soon be very happy in a loving adult home with at least one other cat. She is spayed, vaccinated and negative for feline leukemia and FIV. She is in excellent health, has good litterbox manners and is ready to be the next love in your life!

Please note: 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 to adoption is to fill out an on -line application.

Young KITTENS are always adopted in Pairs or to homes with other felines already in the home.

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!
Rescue Group Info...
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.
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.
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.
We typically adopt our animals to homes within a 1 hour drive from the Allentown PA area, although we will drive longer distances for special needs adoptions.
