Our adult cats are all 1 year and older, and all waiting for a home that will shower them with love. Some might be great as an only cat and some might need a buddy to go home to. Read the bio to learn more.
These kitties have some special needs but are as lovable (or even more) as any cat! These needs include medication, blindness, FIV+ or missing limbs. Read their bio to learn more. We are always here for questions regarding our special needs cats - email us.
Our kittens age between 6 weeks to 1 year - all with different personalities and temperaments. Generally kittens are ready to go home with you once they had their surgery at 3 lbs (which they usually reach at 2.5-3 months of age). We recommend to adopt a pair if you do not yet have any cats as kittens can get lonely quick. Do you only want one kitten? Ask us if any of our kittens would do well as a single baby.
Kittens are great and all, but have you ever considered a gorgeous, calico mama who is laid back and wise beyond her years? Sweet Mama Parm is a true kitty goddess. This small framed calico queen was rescued from a filthy alley with her five newborn kittens. Despite being skinny and sickly herself, Mama Parm did everything she could to nurse not only her own babies, but another trio of orphaned kittens that were saved from ACCT.
Now, Mama Parm's kitten-making, street life days are behind her and it;s finally her turn to be spoiled.
She is friendly, trusting, and affectionate towards people, and she loves meal time with her humans. This sweet girl has definitely had a rough go, but now that she's safe, she's learning she really likes to be brushed and is very interested in crinkle toys. Mama Parm gets along well with other cats (clearly, she has reared a whole brood of kittens) and has no problem with small dogs, so she's a great fit for a multi or single pet household. However, Mama Parm would prefer a family of adults or older kids that can give her a home with a calmer atmosphere. If you're not sold on kitten craziness, and instead want a chill Philly girl to spoil, give Mama Parm a chance and apply to adopt her today! View more photos

Tastycake is a young kitty who was rescued from the hard life as a stray on the streets of South Philly. Even though he might have started as a street cat, Tastycake is friendly, playful and super affectionate. He loves his human foster parents and is just thrilled to be inside.
Tastycake has a unique swagger to his walk that is due to an old hip injury. However, the vet does not think it needs any future treatment as it does not seem to bother him. If you are looking for a truly loveable guy, apply to adopt this sweetest Tastycake! View more photos
Meet Michiko (aka Michi, Michimo, Mochi, the possibilities are endless and she doesn't mind any variation!) Michiko was found dumped on the streets of South Philly on Thanksgiving morning, where she approached her finders begging for love and pets. She was clearly looking for a place to call home and could not be happier to be safe in her foster home.
Michiko is a gorgeous tri-colored tabbico girl who is just the sweetest and smallest lap cat there is. Even though she's fully grown, this petite queen is only 5 pounds! She has a lovely personality that is just the right balance of spicy yet sweet. She is always eager to cuddle and climb into her humans' lap, and will give head butts to let you know she requires attention, scritches, and pets. You can generally find her relaxing and sleeping, but she has a playful side too and especially enjoys rolling and swatting with her wand toy.
We aren't sure how Michiko is with other animals yet, but we think she'd do fine with a slow introduction. She's the perfect fit for a cozy home where she can cuddle up with her people. If you are looking for a pint-size queen, apply to give Miss Michiko a forever family just in time for the holidays! . See more pictures

Joe Exotic is an orange boy from the block. He’s super affectionate with humans and just wants head scritches all day long. Joe came from a very unsafe block in NE Philly and he is just so appreciative of being inside. He doesn’t need much! Just a warm bed to lay his head down on and love from his person. He loves to eat, wet food and dry, but might benefit from being fed separately from other resident cats until he can trust them more fully. Joe had to fend for himself for a long time, so it’s no surprise he wants to eat in peace. Apply to adopt this absolute gem today! View more photos
Carole Baskin is a black and white girl who came in from the same block as Joe Exotic. She’s also very human friendly but can be a little reserved at first, choosing to go hide in her cave until she trusts you and the canned food comes out. Carole seems to have excellent manners around the litter box and with food, she is willing to share with friendly cats. Carole could be adopted into a home with another friend or as an only pet. She deserves a warm and cozy home after being out on the streets for so long. You will not regret adopting this sweet and special girl! View more photos
Meet the most gentle and pure sad boy that is Rocco Valentino. He is best known for his incredibly adorable and sad eyes, and therefore given a nickname of Sad Boy. This chonky guy was rescued by the wonderful people of The Cat Collaborative and stole everyone’s hearts. Sad Boy was very likely dumped after a physically abusive situation. Sad Boy is still very curious of people, however and will cautiously approach you for gentle pets and brushies. But remember to go slowly at first, he flinches if he thinks you’ll hit him!
How could anyone with a heart be able to hit this sweet little teddy bear of a boy? We may never know, but with a bit of patience (and treats) you can earn his love and trust. Pictures cannot begin to capture the amount of dopamine and serotonin boosts you would automatically get when you lay your eyes on his teddy bear-like nose. His eyes look very woeful and have seen much sadness, so let’s give this angel a reason to purr endlessly by adopting him into your family. View more photos
Lizzie is a sweet and independent girl. She doesn't ask for much unless she is hungry! This girl doesn't miss a meal and will let you know if you are even 5 minutes late for her feeding. She is currently living with cats and dogs however she would do best in a calmer home. She should be in a home with 1 or 2 other calm pets or with dogs that do not bark a lot. We think she could be ok with older children. She is very playful and loves tubes, wand toys and any treat that you want to give her.
Lizzie would be a lap cat but she is currently afraid to come up on the couches if there are any other animals present. Lizzie has lived in her current home since she was 4 weeks old however at this time it seems best for her to live in a more stable environment without so many animals coming in and out.

Marigold is a super sweet young (1ish year old) girl who comes in a kaleidoscope of colors - is she orange, tabby, and tortie all mixed into one? All we know is that she’s a showstopper in the looks but more importantly in the personality department, making her a true catch. Marigold just arrived to her foster home but she is friendly as can be and has been soliciting pets with head butts and is constantly rubbing against your legs. She’s been around other cats but has not been exposed yet in the foster home. Marigold clearly lived in a home at some point and would love a safe and comfy forever home where she can get all the love she wants from her humans, and not have to worry about ever being outside again. If you’re looking for an absolute lovebug of a cat, marigold is your girl! View more photos
Frank Sinatra the kitty crooner will steal your heart with his sweet personality. Old blue, we mean green eyes, loves head scratches and to sing the song of his people. Spend some time with this boy and he'll reward you with lots of head butts and cuddles.
Ever the old soul, Frank gets a little nervous with loud noises and sudden movements and would prefer a home that will give him time to settle in and take their time to earn his full trust. He's gotta do it his way. Frank gets along with other cool cats but hasn't been around dogs. He prefers an adults-only venue for his permanent residency.
The best is yet to come if you adopt this chatty, well-dressed tuxie boy. View more photos
Cletus is a friendly and chatty boy looking for his forever lap. Sadly Cletus was found in his former home after his owners moved and left this sweet tabby boy behind. We think Cletus is about three years old and can find no reason why someone would abandon him. He's a very loving and friendly boy, who loves to chat. Pretty much all he wants to do is sit by your side and say "hi!" Cletus is friendly with other cats and definitely enjoys his toys.
Cletus would do best in a home with another friendly kitty to play with and a family looking for a playful addition to their family. If you're looking for a tabby boy full of life ready for all your love, apply to adopt Cletus! View more photos
Meet Naomi. This supermodel kitty of the world is ready to take over biscuit production at your home! Naomi is a proximity cat - ready to supervise your work from home situation, check on your day to day tasks, provide feedback, and generally strut her stuff down the catwalk of your home - as long as she's near you.
Naomi is a food motivated purr machine (who said models don't eat?) and is very easily coaxed into cuddles as long as there's a fleecy blanket in the mix. She's a playful girl, who is learning that hand nibbles are not the way. She's an absolute delight whether she's letting you know what she wants for breakfast, headbutting you for attention, or watching your back with all her fierceness while you go about your day - that is, until you snatch her up for laptime.
Naomi is more of a top model and isn't sure how she feels about other kitties crowding her runway. However, she may be able to set aside her diva energy to befriend another kitty with the proper slow introduction. If you want a fiercely fabulous kitty girl to add to your home, apply to adopt Naomi today! View more photos
Meet the polite and friendly Petunia. This teen tuxedo was sadly dumped by her former owners after getting pregnant. Poor Petunia's babies didn't survive outside in the cold. Fortunately, our friends from the Cat Collaborative helped get Petunia spayed to put her baby-making days in the past and her Kitten Snatchers foster mama agreed to give her a shot at a new life instead of being released back into the cold.
Petunia says it's about time! This petite kitty is a house cat through and through and an excellent house guest at that! Despite what she's been through, Petunia is still very loving, affectionate, and trusting of humans. She's very grateful for yummy meals and a warm place to rest her head. She's a great work from home buddy and will dazzle your co-workers during Zoom meetings with her lovely fur and piercing green eyes. She loves affection and is also a certified seat warmer, before getting right up to greet you when you return to your chair.
If you want to give a great girl a second chance at life and make her a permanent resident in your home, apply to adopt Petunia! View more photos

Hippocatamus is FIV+. And there is a big misconception about FIV…FIV is not a deadly virus. FIV is not Feline AIDS. “FIV positive” is just a diagnosis of the virus being present. FIV+ cats with homes can and DO live long, healthy normal lives … when given the chance. Read more about FIV
Beautiful Betty White was named after the late great. Her personality matches her namesake as she is sweet, spunky and funny.

Dr. Shelly came in from outside and now loves hanging in the home office while her foster mom works. She's also doing great being alone in the room the rest of the day. Shelley is eating wet and dry food well and using the litter box. She doesn't have a huge appetite like some cats who I've seen come from outside. She's a slow eater.
She curls up on laps arms and purrs and kneads away. Shelley communicates well through chirps and is very handsy. When she wants a scratch or snuggle, she reaches a paw out and gives a few pats. Adopt this sweetheart today. View more photos
Izzy was found living with her mom and dad in North Philadelphia. She has only been inside and around humans for 5 days but is already showing that living inside is where she wants to be! Izzy was named after the impending snow storm that her trapper saved her from having to endure.
Izzy gets very excited when her foster mom comes to see her; she perks up and begins to make the cutest little meows; she loves face scratches, belly rubs and snuggles. She has even been known to give some thank you kisses!
Izzy is a little bit shy but is proving to come around very quickly and should be adopted into a home that has another outgoing cat friend! She is playful, sweet and will make an amazing companion. View more photos

Meet the dapper and compact Mustachio Pistachio!
Mustachio Pistachio is a more reserved and smaller cat in comparison to his brother Juicy. But this little guy is still capable of sharing love with humans and other feline siblings alike. Mustachio Pistachio needs a crash course in socializing with people still, but very soon he’ll be just as confident as Juicy! Don’t worry, Mustachio Pistachio is a fast learner and can run/sprint just as quickly too. He’s learning that he needn’t run away from his humans, but it’s still funny to see his Mario/Wario mustache across his face! View more photos
Meet the snuggly and laid back Juicy. This sweet boy is a great napping buddy and has the softest fur for all your cuddle needs! Given his tough start to life on the streets, Juicy is a bit cautious at first. But, this little guy just wants to be close to his human at all times. He'll be the first one ready to plop down right next to you once it's time for bed, or nestle lovingly atop your head.
Juicy is friendly to humans and great at sharing them with his other feline foster siblings. He'd be a great addition to a home with other kitties and looking for the cuddle squeeze. Apply to adopt Juicy and you won't regret adding this snuggle puff to your family! View more photos
