Penelope came to Save The Animals Rescue Team II (START II) as a stray kitten. Scarred and alone, the all-volunteer, non-profit animal rescue group located in Englewood, took her immediately into their care. Penelope was always overlooked at the shelter as a kitten, and grew up in the shelter. She is now approximately 4 or 5 years of age. Penelope had been fostered for some time and then had to come back to the shelter, where she spends her days with friends hanging out playing with toys and lounging around. In foster care, Penelope lived with dog so the volunteers know how wonderful she would be in a home where she would be welled care for and possibly have a playmate.

However still a bit shy, Penelope will make an amazing addition to any family. She is a short hair domestic young adult cat with a sexy girly shape. She has beautiful markings and very attractive seductive eyes. Penelope deserves a permanent loving home and a family to call her own. Can this be you?

Penelope is spayed and up to date on all of her routine shots. Penelope and her friends are up for adoption at START II. If you are interested in meeting Penelope, please fill out an online application at www.startii.org or call the shelter at 201-797-8861.
