Cat of the Week: Morris

Poor Morris (A11694125) is in need of TLC and rescue! Morris is a handsome 7-year-old male cat. He has an orange tabby coat. Morris was adopted a few months ago but was returned because his owners said that he was not using his litter box or eating. Morris eats wet food just fine and has been using his litter box consistently here at the shelter. Morris could use a good dental cleaning and some TLC. He also walks with a slight limp because he had an old fracture that did not heal properly. This doesn’t slow him down though! He is already neutered, micro-chipped and combo test negative!

These animals are located at Philadelphia’s animal control shelter, ACCT. They need immediate adoption or foster care.

Adopted so far




ACCT is located at 111 W Hunting Park Ave. and is open 365 days a year. Please check the PSPCA website for hours. To check the status of an animal, call 267-385-3800, email nsmith AT or mdecker AT

Don’t forget to check out the weekly Animal Care & Control event at the Petsmart in Haldeman Plaza, where you can learn more about adoption and foster care, and meet some animals who need a good home.
