Penny

Tabby, Mix

An adotable cat in Philadelphia, PA

  • Adult
  • Medium
  • Female



This animal is not at the shelter; they are in foster care. If you are interested in adopting this kitty, please email the foster parent at sdilliplane@asc.upenn.edu

Penny was abandoned by her owners when they were evicted from their apartment. She was taken in by a concerned neighbor, but he was also subsequently evicted and resorted to carrying Penny around the streets of Philly in the sweltering summer heat in a
small carrier. Penny was ultimately surrendered and now lives in a PAWS foster home. Despite the hardships she has endured, Penny has maintained a sweet disposition. A friendly and playful little lady, she has a gentle purr and a fondness for playing
with feather toys. She seems to be ok with other cats, especially more laid back ones. She is approximately 2-4 years old, spayed, and up to date on vaccines.
