About Us


I’m a year old, but still a precocious kitten! I love attention and playing with toys. I’m very curious and like to explore. I’m learning to wait patiently for food instead of stealing it. My foster mom keeps telling me that I’m always going to have good food and I don’t have to fight for it, but it’s hard to remember that sometimes. I’m very busy, so can only be held and cuddled for a minute – I have things to do! Despite some bad habits, my foster mom tells me I’m a sweet, silly boy. I like to talk too, especially when I think you might feed me. I’ll literally sing for my supper!

Hobbies: eating and playing with toys
Favorite Toy: feathers on strings, plastic springs
Favorite Napping Spot: curled up next to my foster mom.


I’m a shy boy and take a while to come out of my shell.  I am still learning to trust people again, and that I am safe and will always have food and love. It’s been hard for me to learn that I don’t need to scavenge and steal food. My foster mom tells me I’m always going to have food, but it’s hard to remember. I like to be petted for a minute, but get overwhelmed by the attention. When I feel comfortable, I act like a silly kitten chasing after my toys.

Hobbies: playing with toys, sniffing out treats
Favorite Toy: strings and feathers, scratching posts
Favorite Napping Spot: in my little cat bed or on the cat tree


We lost our home when an infant came to live in our house. We were put outside to fend for ourselves. A few months later, a neighbor saw us digging in a trash can and after talking to our former owner, called the PGSPCA for help. They took us in and we are so happy to be in a warm, safe home again!


We would like a quiet, patient family that will help us learn that we are always going to be safe and don’t have to be afraid or fight for food. We can get easily overwhelmed and sometimes growl, but we’re not mean. We want to stay together.  We don’t always get along, but we’ve always stuck together through the ups and downs of our short lives. We really need each other.
