    Sweet, loving Joey, then a kitten, was found wandering the streets of South Philadelphia, PA looking for a loving person to rescue him and care for him. Poor kitten - he had a small wound on his tail that needed medical treatment. And he was so hungry!! Luckily, Joey found his wonderful foster mom who picked him right up and took him home. She got him immediate veterinary care and gave him a lot of love and fed him well. But she can't keep him, so Joey needs a FOREVER home. Joey is amazing - the greatest personality -- affectionate, playful, goofy, well behaved, and guaranteed to put a smile on your face each morning. He's so handsome - a ... (Read More)tabby with a beautiful pale orange color. Joey is about 8-10 months. He's received his vaccinations, been neutered, preventatively treated for fleas and worms, and screened negative for Feleuk/FIV. His tail wound has healed nicely. He still has some very mild skin allergies so he's on a special diet. If you're interested in adopting Joey, contact or call 610-506-9270 - leave a message with your name, phone number, email addresss . An adoption application process is required. (Less)
