This is a courtesy post! This mom cat and her kittens need a foster home until the kittens are old enough to be separated from mom. If you can help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
" This past Friday 10/7/2016, a very good friend, who lives in Upper Mt. Bethel trapped a stray cat who was frequenting her yard and who had kittens before and was suspected to be pregnant again. She was planning to take her to a spay/neuter clinic early Sunday morning for TNR. THE CAT TURNS OUT WAS PREGNANT AND GAVE BIRTH TO THE KITTENS (3) IN THE TRAP ON SATURDAY! Karen moved her and the kittens into a med. size dog carrier, which she has in her bedroom (where one of her non-cat friendly pet cats resides, and is going to try to move them today (Tues.) into a cat condo, but she does not have any larger quarters in her house to house the mom cat and kittens until the kittens can be adopted. Her house is already full with more than 10 pet cats, a few dogs and rabbits (which most she has selflessly rescued over the years, and she and her husband have health issues, and are seniors. Any of the separate rooms already are occupied by pet cats of hers that have to be separated from the others. She also pointed out that the cat condo (which I mentioned above she is going to try to move the family into today, and move a few mth. old stray kitten she just had fixed out of it and into a smaller cage), is in a sunroom where quite a few of her cats occupy and she knows that her cats will not take kindly to the presence of this stray mom cat and her kittens, and the the condo would be very confining if the mother cat would have to spend a minimum of 7-8 weeks inside."
If you can foster them, please let us know asap. If the mom cat is feral, she would be returned to where she was trapped when the kittens are old enough.
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!
