Pixie is being fostered in Lancaster, PA. Please click 'SEE MORE' to read Pixie's full description.
Pixie is SO sweet. She is a total love bug! Pixie came into the rescue in early October 2012 after she showed up on someones porch suffering from severe malnutrition and mastitis. She went to the vet right away and got treatment for the mastitis along with a weight gain plan. She has recovered beautifully and is ready for a forever family! She is a true survivor and deserves a loving forever family. Pixie needs to be adopted with another cat, or into a family with an existing cat. When Pixie is alone, with no people or other cats, she cries constantly. She is very social and needs constant company. An ideal home for Pixie would be someone who is home a lot of the time and has a social cat already in the home, or she could also be adopted with nearly any other cat from the rescue.
From her foster mom: 'Pixie is the best! She has no issues at all, she has great manners with her scratching post and litter box, she plays with appropriate toys, and LOVES to snuggle!! She has flawless social skills with other cats, and misses her cat buddies when she is away from them. Pixie never meets a stranger, everyone who comes to visit is a new best friend! Every morning after my alarm goes off she comes up onto the bed to make sure I am getting up! She rubs her face on mine and purrs to make sure I am awake!'
Pixie does not like going to adoption events, she does not show her true personality while at the adoption events. We do take her to the adoption events most Saturday afternoons, but she just sleeps the whole time! To truly get to know Pixie we offer a foster-to-adopt program that allows families to take her home for 2-4 weeks and get to know her, if she would not work out for any reason her foster mom is willing to take her back and foster her a while longer until a good fitting forever family can be found.
Pixie is about two years old, she is spayed, vaccinated, and tested negative for FIV/ FeLV. She weighs about 6.5 pounds, and our vet says she is a a very healthy weight for her petite size.
Pixie is good with calm dogs, and needs to be in a home with at least one other cat.

Rescue Group Info...
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.
