Gwendolyn was found during a Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) project. She was only 1lb 8oz when she was found, but the vet estimated her age to be closer to 4 months old so she was literally half the weight she should have been! This poor kitten would surely have died had she not come into foster care.
Gwendolyn tested Negaive for Feline Leukemia and FIV, treated for a serious flea infestation and has received 2 dewormings. Over the last few weeks in foster care she has quickly rebounded and is eating her way to a healthy weight! She is a little shy with humans at first, but once you start petting her she audibly purrs and rolls on her back for tummy rubs. She loves to play with other cats and kittens.
Gwendolyn has befriended a cute long-haired gray kitten found in the same colony, so they are likely relatives. His name is Blue Star and although he is younger by 2 months, his very outgoing personality really helps to bring Gwendolyn out of her shell and they would love to go to a home together.
Gwendolyn MUST be adopted with another young kitten playmate (Like Blue Star) or go to a home that already has another young cat living there.
Adopting from The Cat Shack The Cat Shack rescue is all volunteer and the adopted cats are delivered to your home. Because we deliver the cats to you, we must restrict the adoptions of our highly adoptable cats to a 1 hour drive from the Allentown PA area. In certain situations, 'special-needs' cats, ferals and older cats will be adopted to homes at a greater distance then a 1 hour drive from Allentown PA.

Young KITTENS are always adopted in Pairs or to homes with other felines already in the home. Click here to read why kittens are happier with a buddy!
All cats are vaccinated, dewormed, tested and altered as part of the adoption contract. This basic care (and other vet work required to make our rescues healthy) is included in the $85 adoption donation!
