Cat of the week: orange kitten needs a home and a name

Roooooaaaarr! This adorable orange puffball (AC21269) looks like he’s going to be a

big tiger when he grows up — but he needs your help to get there! He is only 4 to 5 weeks old, and came into the shelter emaciated, dirty, and with some loose stool.

Despite these maladies he is full of life, is playful and purrs the minute you touch him. He is a super cute kitten that is going to be a gorgeous long hair adult, if he can get out of the shelter ASAP!

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

On Saturday and Sunday, June 4 and 5, ACCT will host a Tropical Party complete with food and fun while you find your new best friend. Special adoption prices ($1 cats and $19.95 dogs) include spay/neuter, shots and micro-chipping. PSPCA Flier.
