Oh, Eli. You are so stunning! From the tips of his little orange ears to the bottoms of his little pink toes, this boy is handsome!  He's a knock out for sure!

Eli Joe really is a sweet, affectionate boy.  His foster family loves his outgoing nature and fearless attitude.  He loves to be petted and lay with you - on his terms!  He wants you when he wants you and won't leave you alone if he does!

He is long and lean, and has a talking voice that you won't miss when he wants your attention!  This little dude has the sass meter cranked up to 10 all the time!  He is very sweet, but is highly opinionated and wants his way!  His personality is typical of a Siamese, and you should do your research on the breed or have first hand experience prior to adopting him.

Eli Joe earned a middle name because he is so smart that he can sometimes be pretty ornery!  He likes to get into things and discover new ways to keep us busy.

Eli is okay with other cats.  He does take some time to warm up to them but he does well once he gets to know them.  He has not been around dogs, but would likely do fine as long as they respect him.

Eli would do best in a 1-2 person adult family.  He is currently fostered by a family who does have kids, and he does fairly well, but some children may not understand that he doesn't want to be held and played with constantly.  Older children who can give him his space when he wants it would be fine.

Eli Joe is about 8 months old as of 8/21/16.  He is neutered, vaccinated, tested neg/neg for FIV/FeLV and has been treated with flea and worm preventatives.  He has been very healthy for us. 

Eli came to the rescue when he was 7 months old, when his previous owner was evicted from their home.  He is a great cat, and will make a wonderful pet.

If you are interested in adopting Eli Joe, please complete an adoption application and pre-adoption questionnaire on  The adoption fee for Eli is $100.

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.

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.
