Cats of the week: pair of kittens needs a home

This pair of kittens (A13453361) could use some extra love and TLC! They are around six weeks old. They were found as strays and it seems that they have lived most of their lives outside. They are very scared of people and try to act tough by hissing, but once they are held, they calm down. There is a fuzzy, black and white male kitten and an adorable grey tabby female. Can you help this pair out?

These animals are located at Philadelphia’s animal control shelter, ACCT. They need immediate adoption or foster care. ACCT is located at 111 W Hunting Park Ave and is open 365 days a year. Adoption hours are Monday-Friday; 1pm-8pm; Saturday and Sunday; 10am-5pm. To check the status of an animal, call 267-385-3800. Please visit for more information.
