The Birth of Kitty Colony:
A cat lover since childhood, I was heartbroken at the lack of care given to the barn cats on the farm where I was residing. I couldn't understand the philosophy of many of the farmers -"You don't feed Mousers" How can a cat chase mice if weak and emaciated from lack of proper nutrition or water? A healthy cat chases mice for sport - and will catch more than its unfed counterparts.
We started putting out food and water for the few cats that wandered through and were soon pulled into rescue work as the cats began to colonize and multiply on the property. The first few litters of kittens we cared for ourselves - We were able to tame and adopt out several and family pitched in to help foster the kittens when we couldn't.
As the colony continued to grow, we enlisted the help of PAWS volunteers to help with the trapping and spaying/neutering of the cats, and several members assisted in fostering and socializing the kittens. Several of our socialized cats and kittens were adopted through a PAWS Petsmart Adoption center, others were incorporated into the Catworks Inc. or adopted out privately by PAWS volunteers. I nicknamed my little family of cats "Kitty Colony" and put together a personal Kodak webpage to share my pictures with friends and to help advertise and adopt the socialized cats and kittens there on the farm and fostered by my family.
When we moved from Lancaster County - I couldn't leave my "Barn Babies" - the cats that had been born, and had grown up in the barn - So I took them with me. These cats are still semi-feral, or very feral (wild!) and many of them will probably remain so for the rest of their lives. In that case, I will care for them and love them as much as they will allow me to - but they are now indoor-only and are living the good life - fat and lazy and happy!
Kitty Colony Now:
Kitty Colony does not operate a permanent animal shelter. All of our cats and kittens are fostered privately in home environments. This ensures that every one of our wonderful kitties are well-socialized and well-adjusted to a home life prior to being adopted by their forever family.
While our main foster home is in Jenkintown, PA, we have also branched out to once again include our Lancaster kitties.

Hello! I am a graduate writing student at Arcadia University starting up a small pet-sitting business. I have taken on many dog and cat care jobs in the past, but always on an informal basis. I am now looking to build a substantial client base. My availability may remain slightly abridged until the end of the semester (May 6th) but will expand exponentially after that. Regardless, I am ready to take on at least some jobs now. I drive a new Toyota Sienna van which has been outfitted to easily convey dogs. One of the back seats has been removed to create flat space and in its place I've put down a blanket and a water bowl. I keep plastic bags and dog treats in it at all times. It's very convenient, clean, and safe.
