Domestic Short Hair, Mix

An adotable cat in Philadelphia, PA

  • Adult
  • Medium
  • Male

Pepe and Penelope are sweet, adorable and full of love! They came from a cat hoarding situation and were dropped off in the middle of the night crammed in a dog carrier with 24 other kitties at a local shelter. They must be adopted together, see more of their story below.

They were very afraid at first and did not let anyone pet them or come near them, it took months of work to earn their trust. Then one day Penelope realized things were okay, it was a slow beginning and from a foster perspective very rewarding. Pepe was skeptical but eventually a week or so later he said okay I will give these people chance.

Pepe is such a ham bone, he loooooves attention and literally follows you around the house silently until you stop to do what your doing and plop, he lays at your feet, stretching out until you pay attention to him.

We have many laughs watching his antics, he is playful, loving and good with other cats and rabbits. He is good around kids but think it best they are in a home with older children who understand animals.

Who ever adopts these 2 the reward will be yours.

He is neutered, current on shots and micro-chipped. contact [email protected]
