UPDATE 2/17/16: Sherbert is settling in well to her new foster home. Here is an update we recently received from her foster parent:
"She is a playful cat and enjoys being pet. She loves to roam around. She doesn't like to be startled so if you have little ones that have lots of energy she will need a nice spot of her own to go and relax and stay out of the excitement. She is litter trained.
She likes to keep to herself and will occasionally rub on your leg when she wants to be pet. She's very playful and like to paw at you sometimes. She lets you know when she is hungry and she likes to sit in the window and watch the birds!"
You can get in touch with Sherbert's foster mom via email at email@example.com.
Sherbert is certainly a fitting name for this bright orange lady! Like her namesake, Sherbert is as sweet and relaxing on a hot summer day (or cold winter evening) as a big bowl of orange sherbert.
Don't mistake Sherbert's calm and relaxed demeanor for shyness - she is quite comfortable when meeting first-time visitors. She just prefers to lay back and relax as she observes her admirers! For more information, please email her foster parent at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Name: Sherbert Age: 2 years Reason for surrender: found stray Animal ID#: A30502729
Current location: Foster care

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.
