Please contact Autumn for more information about this pet.Hi! My name is Patches and I'm asking for your help. I have some good buddies who need help too.

I'm about a year old and was rescued last summer as a young kitten from the place where I was born. The picture you see of me here was taken when I was younger. I look the same now - just a little bigger!  I lived outdoors with far too many other cats. Food was put out for us there but we received no other care. Fortunately, some very kind ladies rescued me and some of my friends, and got as many of the cats spayed and neutered as they could trap. I was taken into foster care and neutered. I was then lucky enough to be adopted with 2 of my buddies by a caring man who wanted to help us. We have lived in his house since then and sometimes go outside through a cat door. Unfotunately though, our new owner has serious problems of his own and can not properly care for us, so now we all need to find new homes. We hope we find really good homes where we can stay for the rest of our lives.

My buddies, Morris and Stealth, and I are all pretty shy, though we did get to become pretty comfortable with the man who adopted us because things are nice and quiet. We have a friend who is a little bit older named Tim who lives with us too and he is also looking for a new home. Speaking for myself, I'd even be happy to live in your barn if you promise to take care of me and look out for me. I'll be happy to keep your place free of pesty rodents in return! You don't have to adopt all of my buddies but if 2 of us could come together to live with you, that would be wonderful. Please give it some thought. Life started out pretty rough for me and I'm hoping things are going to get better. Will you please help me?

Adopting from The Cat Shack

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.

Young KITTENS are always adopted in Pairs or to homes with other felines already in the home. Click here to read why kittens are happier with a buddy!

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!

About The Cat Shack, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

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.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We always have many cats and kittens listed on our website at, 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.

Our Adoption Process...

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.
