Shadow is a beautiful and friendly 1 & 1/2 year old black cat. He has a complex character and forms special relations with everyone he spends time with. He is elegant and energetic; he loves having lots of space to run, play and chase his favorite toys, and a good belly rub while curled up in bed when he is tired out. Shadow is shy and reserved at first, and he takes a while to adjust to new spaces. However once he is comfortable he likes to spend as much time as possible with his human friends, following them from room to room (like a shadow!). In addition to humans, Shadow also gets along with other cats — he even shares his food and toys. Shadow would love a busy home where there is space for him to play and people around to spend as much time as possible with him. Having lived in a house with several people with different work schedules, Shadow is used to people coming and going and having lots of activity around.

PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, is a 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue organization.

PAWS is dedicated to saving the lives of Philadelphia's homeless, abandoned and unwanted animals and is working to make Philadelphia a city in which every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home.
