Sassafras, domestic shorthair mix
Sassafras is a female domestic shorthair kitten being cared for at PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society).
Sassafras has been vaccinated. Good news: She is already house-trained.
Here's more about Sassafras:
This is a sweet, shy and sensitive kitty. She is incredibly shy, but the shelter is working on getting her out of her shell. She likes her own space, but is always up for playing. This kitty is still very reactive to sounds and movements, and gets spooked easily. Going slow and building trust is necessary for this girl. She has become fairly food motivated and is a great eater. She has great litterbox skills.

Bobcat is a male tabby kitten currently housed at Whiskers of Love Cat Rescue and Sanctuary.
Bobcat is a social animal, and he'll get along great with children, dogs or cats. He is already vaccinated. No need to worry: He is already house-trained.
Here's more about Bobcat:
This boy is basically the perfect cat. He would do best in a home with other cats because he loves and gets along with them. Because he lived outside at one time, he would be happiest in a home where he has room to explore. He also must be kept strictly inside. His litter box must monitored closely for the next six months to make sure he continues to urinate without difficulty.

Calista, domestic shorthair
Calista is a female domestic shorthair kitten staying at Northeast Animal Rescue.
Calista loves to socialize — she gets along well with children, dogs or cats. She is already house-trained. She already has had all of her shots.
Here's more about Calista:
Even though Calista was a bit scared when she was first rescued, she has always been very curious about everything going on around her. Although she has not been fully exposed to the other cats and two large dogs she is living with, she has not hissed at anyone that she has met so far. She has also had some exposure to young children and has done well with them, sitting on their laps getting lots of attention, which she loves. Calista will require lots of patience and attention in order to help her adjust to new surroundings.

Chase, domestic shorthair
Chase is a male domestic shorthair kitten staying at PURR-Philadelphia Urgent Rescue and Relief.
He already has had all of his shots.
Here's more about Chase:
This kitty is the perfect combination of cuddly and playful, and is always down for a good belly rub. He is an affectionate little guy with no aggressive scratching or biting. He likes soft things and sitting in high places. He is very patient when bathing, grooming, and nail cutting, and does not have any litter box issues at all. Chase has tested positive for FeLV, which is a viral infection that affects a cat's immune system and bone marrow. He doesn't have any special care requirements, other than to just give him good food and good care. As FeLV is contagious to other cats, he needs to be in a home with no other cats.
