This section lists cats who previously lived in a home, but are not adjusting well to the unfamiliar shelter environment. The behavior of these cats may range from fearful asocial to fearful reactive, and who may have reported potentially aggressive behavior displayed towards humans. ACCT Philly will share all available history with an adopter or Love Local Partner.
This section lists cats who previously lived in a home, but are not adjusting well to the unfamiliar shelter environment. These behaviorally urgent cats refer to those who have been observed to be asocial, fearful, scared, nervous, and potentially reactive. They are currently being given time-to-adjust (TTA) to the shelter in quiet, low traffic space, but these cats would benefit from leaving the shelter to decompress in a home environment. ACCT Philly will share all available history with a potential adopter, foster parent, or Love Local Partner.
Although we cannot make any guarantee that behavior will improve in a home, a majority of these cats have reports of thriving in their previous homes. These cats will require an owner who is knowledgeable with feline behavior, and who will give them the time and patience necessary to acclimate and thrive in their new home environment.
TTA (Time to Adjust) cats are available to approved Love Local Partner who can accommodate their specific needs. Many are also available through our Foster Program and Adoption Program to an experienced and informed handler.
