Keith is being fostered in Lancaster Pa.  He is neutered, vaccinated, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, and has been treated with flea and worm preventatives.

June 2013:

Keith is a big lover boy!!  He is super affectionate and attention seeking.  He turns to mush in your arms and loves to cuddle!

Keith and Kyley were rescued with their 4 kittens.  Their previous family no longer wanted them.  He is about 6 years old.

He likes to play with toys, but likes to be lazy with his foster family too.  He is good with other cats and would do best with no dogs. 

Keith was hit by a car about a week before he was surrendered to the rescue, and had been hit by a car at least once prior.  He is an absolute survivor!  He is now all healed up and has no residual problems.  He does walk a little a funny, but it doesn't slow him down at all!

**UPDATE June 2016**

Our sweet, handsome Keith is now about 9 years old and still waits for a forever home.  He is mellow and calm and SO easy to love!  Keith is a major cuddler who looks forward to his snuggle time.  When you cant be home, he is content to lay around in a sunny window all day.  He loves attention from his people and is a total lover.  He still plays with toys sometimes, but mostly he follows the sunshine from window to window.  He is a couch potato who looks forward to watching TV with you and hearing you tell him about your day.  He is great with other cats, as long as they aren't a big tough guy like he is!  Keith will always think he's the big man on campus.  He might not be as good as he once was, but he's as good once as he ever was! (You know how the song goes!)  He wants a home where he can relax and be loved.  In his foster home he has a gaggle of female foster siblings that adore him and he is a good role model for the young males that have come and gone from his foster home.  We love our 'Cowboy Keith' and we are SO ready for him to get the loving forever home he deserves!  Keith is healthy and happy, he still has his sweet slow swagger from prior injuries, but never seems to be in pain.  If you give him a chance, he will stroll right into your heart and make himself at home!

Keith's adoption fee is $50

About Kitty Colony - Ephrata

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.

As volunteers for various rescues, we began to rescue and foster ferals and adoptables in need of special care and attention - we especially try to take needy cats and kittens from shelters where they would otherwise be euthanized.

Kitty Colony has branched out since first beginning its adoption program in Jenkintown, PA and now encompasses Ephrata and Lancaster as well.

We have several foster homes and our home base for the Lancaster area is in Ephrata, PA.

Funds for Supplies (Food, Litter, Medical Supplies)

Come Meet Our Pets...

We operate out of foster homes - most of which are not open to the public, but we are working to open more foster homes to visitors in the near future.

For the present we meet by appointment only at local petsmarts in Lancaster, Willow Grove and Jenkintown.
