Make sure you click 'read more' to view Simon's complete description! 

Simon is a big handsome boy!  He has lots of great things going for him.  He has a fantastic, outgoing, bold personality!  He is not shy or reserved at all!  He loves to be held and carried around, and likes to lay in your lap.  He is very smart and understands what 'no' means, but that doesn't mean he always listens!   He is super affectionate and loves everyone, he never meets a stranger, everyone is his best friend!

He has tons of personality and is very 'dog-like.'  He knows his name and comes when you call him.  He loves to follow you around and see what you are doing all the time. 

Simon's favorite thing is FOOOOD!  He will do anything for a treat and cannot be trusted around food he isnt meant to have.  He can be a little theif and he needs to be kept out of the kitchen while you cook.

He loves to play!  Simon will play with you all day long!  He loves toys of all shapes and sizes! 

Simon is leash trained!  While he is an indoor pet, he does like to get his leash and harness on and go out to sit in the sun with you.  Simon CAN NOT be trusted off leash or in a fenced yard.  He will run off at the first opportunity and we prefer a home where he will never go outside at all, even on a leash.  Simon is a master escape artist with fenced yards and cannot be confined by a fence.  He normally does not try to get out of his foster homes, if he does try, a simple 'no' and pushing him back tends to work.  He gives up after a few attempts to follow.  The best way to ensure that he won't follow is to put down some canned cat food in a different room of the house so he is distracted when you leave.

Simon loves all people and is good with other cats.  He is okay with dogs but has not been around to many.  The ones he has met, he likes. 

He does play rough sometimes and would probably not do well with children under the age of 10, who would not understand his behavior.  He loves to snuggle and be petted, but he also sometimes 'lovebites.'  He never means any harm, but he doesnt know his own strength.

Simon is a great cat who has been waiting his whole life for a family to adopt him.  He has been in several foster homes and is thriving in his current foster home.  All of his foster families have positively adored him!  He is so affectionate and loving!

Simon can be a bit of a handful, but he is so sweet and such a great little man that it completely makes up for it.

Our Simon has been waiting his whole life for someone to adopt him and love him forever, are you that person?

About Kitty Colony - Jenkintown

About Our Rescue Group...

We seek to rescue the abandoned, the unwanted, the unloved - the cats that need us.

- To care for and provide a loving, cage free home for cats awaiting adoption.

- To reduce euthanasia in overcrowded shelters by taking in cats that need more TLC.

- To educate the public about proper and responsible care of domestic companion animals.

Kitty Colony was founded in Lancaster County, PA.

A cat lover since childhood, I was heartbroken at the lack of care given to the barn cats on the farm where I was residing. I coudn't understand the philosophy of many of the farmers - "You don't feed Mousers" How can a cat chase mice if weak and emaciated from lack of proper nutrition or water? A healthy cat chases mice for sport - and will catch more than its unfed counterparts.
We started putting out food and water for the few cats that wandered through and were soon pulled into rescue work as the cats began to colonize and multiply on the property. The first few litters of kittens we cared for ourselves - We were able to tame and adopt out several and family pitched in to help foster the kittens when we couldn't.
As the colony continued to grow, we enlisted the help of PAWS Volunteers to help with the trapping and spaying/neutering of the cats, and several members assisted in fostering and socializing the kittens. Several of our socialized cats and kittens were adopted through a PAWS Petsmart Adoption center, others were incorporated into the Catworks Inc. or adopted out privately by PAWS volunteers. I nicknamed my little family of cats "Kitty Colony" and put together a personal Kodak webpage to share my pictures with friends and to help advertise and adopt the socialized cats and kittens there on the farm and fostered by my family.
When we moved from Lancaster County - I couldn't leave my "Barn Babies" - the cats that had been born, and had grown up in the barn - So I took them with me. These cats are still semi feral, or very feral (wild!) and most of them will probably remain so for the rest of thier lives. In that case, I will care for them and love them as much as they will allow me to - but they are now indoor-only and are living the good life - fat and lazy and happy!
Here in Jenkintown "Kitty Colony" has become a local rescue group complete with our own adoption program and TNR assistance for those who need it.
I also began volunteering and fostering this year for Cats With No Name - a mobile low cost spay/neuter program - and we hope to launch a Cats with No Name adoption program in the near future.
So now along with my "Barn Babies" are now many fosters, orphaned kittens, rescued strays, ferals and adoptables- Living in harmony with each other while waiting for thier forever families to find them.
