Beautiful friendly Olivia is somewhere between one and two years old. Someone called for help for her and the three kittens she had, because she had moved her babies onto his porch. Sadly Olivia was very sick (she's all better now), but her three kittens did not make it 🙁. We're determined to get her the best home ever after what she went through- everyone cross your fingers for Oliva. 🤞 . Olivia also has a mystery she can't tell us about because she can't talk- she has no tail, just a little nub. We have no idea how this happened 🤷‍♀️. This beauty is hanging out in the Petsmart in Fairless Hills hoping someone comes along to love her forever soon . Every weekend she has watched other kitties going home and no one has picked her yet. She's very happy for her friends but asked us when someone is going to pick her to be their forever cat. We just keep telling her good things come to kitties who wait.

Toast is the last of her litter waiting for her home and she wants to know why. This girl was born in June and thinks it's about time she got her forever home. All her sisters have done to forever homes already. She does well with other cats but could be an only if you give her attention because she LOVES people. She knows she is nice, pretty and friendly she wants to know why no one has applied to adopt her yet. She came to yet another adoption event this past weekend, tried to look as cute as possible (she is cute) and talked to everyone ...... and still no luck. Could you be her person ?????

Cowboy Cody’s (we think he is somewhere between one and two) story is heartbreaking. He came into the shelter in September wearing a collar with an engraved name tag. No one could even touch him to remove it for over a week! He was terrified and sad in the shelter. We think someone loved him very much at one time and he loved his person but, no one ever came into the shelter to look for him.
He moved into his foster home in early October and he's come a long way. He is now talkative, good with other cats, chilled out, he likes to be petted but, is still shy and afraid of loud noise and lots of activity. He likes to be around people however, it takes him time to trust. He will be a total Velcro cat for someone if they have patience and give him time. We believe he was likely very attached to his owner and losing that person rocked his world. He’d likely do well in an adult home with people willing to give this boy the love and time he needs to figure out the new people are nice. This boy wants a new forever home and this time he wants it to be forever. He can’t go through what happened to him ever again.

April of 2022, that's when five year old Zigzag ended up in the Trenton Shelter after being found outside on the street. We can't believe that in 18 months no one has been interested in Zigzag 😿. First she gets dumped outside and we can't seem to find a potential adopter interested in meeting her.
Although she loves her foster family, she’s thinks it’s about time she got adopted. Zig Zag loves people once she gets comfortable in a new place- other cats not so much, (but she tolerates the ones she is in foster with). Her preference is really to be the only kitty in her home. She knows she is a special kitty and would like to be the queen of the house.
This petite little girl (we're not sure why she looks bigger in pictures than she is, she's a tiny little peanut), loves toys, sleeping in her bed and in her cat tree. We think small kids would be too much for Zig Zag and an adult home (or one with older kids) would be best for her. She’ll need some acclimation time in a new place (like most adult cats who move to a new place) but once she realizes the new people/person and place are nice and she is safe, she will be your BFF.
When we first got Zigzag last year she really didn't trust people very much, it was very heartbreaking because we knew it meant she hadn't had a very nice life before she came to us. But, now she realizes people can be nice and it is safe for her to love them, because she will get loved back. Zigzag just has to be the one who calls the shots and decides when she wants to snuggle. Her foster mom had some house guests for part of the summer and she loved them as soon as she met them. (including the 12 year old young lady visitor)- this is such a 360 degree change from the cat who didn't trust anyone. Zigzag spends a lot of her time in her foster parent's laps. She wants to know why she has waited 18 months for her forever lap/laps.
