Meow! My name is Trinka
I am already spayed, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
Trinka is a petite, dilute tortoiseshell who, sadly, is now looking for a new home since her owner has passed away. Trinka turned 11 years old in February, 2012. She was originally adopted to a widowed lady in early 2003 and lived happily with her, first in their own home and later in an assisted living facility. When her owner had to enter a nursing home, Trinka came back into foster care with TCS, with the hope that her owner's condition would improve enough for them to be reunited again. That never happened, but Trinka visited her owner in the nursing home periodically. During those two hour visits, she remained on the bed with her owner the entire time!
Trinka is an independent kitty who likes attention when she is ready for it, but is not clingy. She enjoys being petted and usually slept at the foot of her owner's bed. Occasionally, she becomes convinced that her tail is out of control and needs to be disciplined. She will growl at it and chase it until she gets it to behave again! Her owner had her trained to go outside wearing a harness and leash, and Trinka loved those adventures at the time.
Unfortunately, Trinka is not entirely happy living with multiple cats in foster care. She has learned to cope with it, but would much prefer to be an only cat. Her ideal home will be with another older person or couple who want a single pet. She is in excellent health and has many years of companionship to offer. She has perfect litter box manners too!

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.
