SHANA fka Starlight

British Shorthair, Mix

An adotable cat in Philadelphia, PA

  • Young
  • Medium
  • Female

Little Shana is a 1 -2 year old ebony British Shorthair mix with big gold eyes that tell you everything she's thinking. The poor girl was brought into the shelter and has been in foster care for a year. Because of her past which must have been quite rough, Shana is shy and takes time to get to know you. She enjoys playtime and greeting you for treats and food but is also independent and doesn't need constant looking after. She enjoys sun bathing and sleeping upside down on the bed when she thinks no ones is looking!

Because she does not like to be picked up, a home without small children is best. Shana likes other kitties, but it might be better for her to be the only kitty to help her bond with you or a home with just one other cat that can show her how a real loving home works, could be ideal as well.

If so… Great! First, decide if you are interested in fostering or adopting! To determine whether you should apply to foster versus adopt, please consider the following information:
-To adopt a cat means to commit to being the primary caregiver for the cat and keep it in your possession, for yourself for the rest of its life. Adult cats are $50 to adopt, kittens (under 6 months old) are $75- that donation covers the vaccines, microchip, surgery, etc that the cat has received.
- To foster a cat means to commit to temporarily caring for the cat while also working to find the dog a “forever home”/adopter. While fostering the cat remains ACCT’s property, but the foster parent takes responsibility for marketing the cat, and doing a preliminary screening of any potential adopters. When an adopter is found, the foster parent must coordinate with the ACCT Life Saving office to approve the adopter and finalize the adoption. If the foster parent decides after time that they would like to keep the cat, they must complete the adoption process and pay the adoption fee. ** Fostering is not a trial adoption.**
More about fostering: Although previous fostering experience is not required, ideal foster care provider will have basic knowledge of animal care and training and be committed to finding their foster animal a safe and loving “forever home”. As a foster care provider, you will provide the animals with care including, food, water, shelter, training, grooming and medical treatment when necessary. ACCT will provide clinic and vet care, behavior and training resources, and adoption counseling. We rely on the foster parent to find an adoptive home for the cat, but we can help! We provide adoption events for you attend, can post your foster cat on Petfinder for you, etc. We cannot guarantee how long a foster cat will be in your care, since you keep the cat until an adoptive home is found, which can be anywhere from 2 weeks to a few months depending on the cat, and how heavily you market it.
Ready to come meet one of the cats? Adoption Hours are: Monday-Friday; 1pm-8pm Saturday and Sunday; 10-5pm Afterhours by appointment Foster Hours are: Monday-Sunday; 9am-6pm Afterhours by appointment
