Abby, Lucas & Harvey
These babies are cute, cute, cute!
ABBY, LUCAS & HARVEY

This trio is very people oriented. They reward human attention with loud purr motors as they hold their tails high.

ABBY & LUCAS(black, short-haired) are twins in both their looks and active personalities. Abby considers herself in charge of greeting new people and exploring expeditions.

HARLEY (medium-haired) is a handsome furry guy. He will steal your heart with his gentle disposition and charming ways.

These kittens may be paired up as Harley/Lucas or Lucas/Abby, or into a home with a compatible feline friend. They have been exposed to dogs, adult cats and older children.

They came into our care from local shelter as tiny kittens and are now ready for their own forever homes of their own.

Ace & Stanley
These boys are devoted to each other!
ACE & STANLEY aren't brothers but are a bonded pair who must be adopted together.

ACE is a class all by himself when it comes to cuteness! He is a petite kitten who loves to be near his 'people.' He has a sweet habit of chirping and mewing hello to his foster family whenever they enter the room. Ace loves being petted and kneads the air with his paws whenever you pet him. He's happy to join his family wherever they are and loves to keep them company when they read or do homework. Ace also likes to play and snuggle with his best friend, Stanley. Ace has a cheerful, happy demeanor and is just content being part of a family. He does well with the children and other cats in his foster home.

STANLEY is a sweet and local kitty. He has the devotion of a dog, the playfulness of a kitten, and the softness of a bunny. Initially cautious and shy, Stanley quickly warms to affection and treats and once he settles into a new home, he will be your furry friend for life. Stanley loves climbing into your lap, and if you are able to ignore him sitting by your feet for long, he gently reminds you to pick him by tapping your leg with his paw. Stanley purrs loudly when held but is otherwise a quiet cat who loves to curl up by your side, enjoys watching birds, is very receptive to other cats. He has learned to trust children and adults alike since he was rescued. If you can be patient with his initially shy nature, Stanley will reward you with a lifetime of companionship and devotion.

Ace came into our care from a home with too many cats to care for. Stanley came from a local shelter. Because of Stanley's initial shyness, they need a quiet to moderately active home with a patient caretaker who will give him a little time to settle into a new home.

Anna & Molly - Adoption Pending!
These girls make an adorable pair!
ANNA & MOLLY are gentle, well-behaved kitties who like to greet their foster family when they come home. These girls have become best buddies and need to be adopted together.

ANNA is a friendly, outgoing kitty. She comes running when you call her and likes to be involved with her foster family's activities. Anna also likes to be petted and snuggle up for a nap with her foster mom whenever she gets a chance! This friendly girl also LOVES to play fetch with her favorite toy mouse over and over again.

MOLLY is a petite girl with striking features and fur as soft as a rabbit. She is a little timid until she gets to know you, but once Molly adjusts to a new environment she likes to hang out with her human family. Molly also likes to wrestle and groom her best friend forever, Anna!

Because Molly is a little timid, she and Anna need a quiet home that will give Molly a little time to adapt to changes. These girls came into our care from a local shelter.

Ashes, Cinder & Sparky
Meet three active, loving boys!
ASHES, CINDER & SPARKY

ASHES (all black) has a very outgoing personality. He may be the smallest of the three brothers, but his personality is over the top. Ashes enjoys lots of play time as well as cuddle time. His foster family says they aren't sure if he is a meerkat imposter or the next YouTube sensation - he loves standing on his hind legs! (We will add this photo)

CINDER (black/white tuxedo) loves lounging and being the center of attention for petting. This handsome boy is adventurous but at the same time easygoing. Cinder also has a wonderful people-oriented personality.

SPARKY (black/white) is a curious little boy who loves new adventures and getting new toys. He wishes every day was a celebration! Sparky knows how to steal your heart by acting silly for attention.

These boys came into our care as orphaned kittens. They were bottle-fed until they were able to eat on their own. They are use to an active home with children, adult cats and two large dogs.

Astro & Smudge - Adoption Pending!
Meet Tilly's babies!
ASTRO & SMUDGE are friendly, people-oriented kitties. They love hanging out with their foster family and with each other. Neither kitty likes being alone - if they are separated while exploring their foster home, one will call out to the other one until they are reunited. These boys make a great pair and need to be adopted together.

ASTRO is more adventurous of the pair, but also has the loudest purr. You are almost certain to hear his motor the minute you pick him up. And Astro is a climber so having a cat tree would be great for this boy. Astro is also a thief! He likes to steal straws - he takes them and hides them to play with later. So cute!

SMUDGE is like his brother but take the energy level down a few notches. He likes to climb but not as often and purrs but not as loud or frequently. Except with food - Smudge is the first to run to get more kibble!

When Astro and Smudge aren't playing, exploring or climbing - they do like to hang out with their foster family. They also like snuggling up with people at bedtime - sometimes wanting to share the pillows! These boys do great with other animals - the older resident cat, bunny and lizard in their foster home. They even like sitting on top of an aquarium that contains the family's lizard!

These kittens are Tilly's babies. They came into SPCA's care as tiny babies - only one week old - from a local shelter.

Beyonce & Celine
BEYONCE & CELINE

Beyonce, Adele (adopted!) and Celine are powerhouse ladies who appropriately fit their namesakes. They can be adopted together or into a home with a like-minded feline companion.

BEYONCE (medium-haired) (see first two photos) is the queen of this little kitty hive. Beyonce does what she wants, when she wants and how she wants. Her sisters let her take the leading lady role, and she is quite a charmer.

CELINE (short-haired) (see third photo) has many Las Vegas style tricks for flipping pompom balls in the air. She also loves talking to strangers.

These girls are comfortable with adult cats, and have been exposed to dogs without having much reaction. They are comfortable with any activity level in a household.

Caramella
Caramella is a sweetheart!
CARAMELLA is a sweet and affectionate tortoiseshell with beautiful markings and golden-yellow eyes. She is fairly low-key and enjoys lounging in her hammock and basking in sunbeams coming through the window. Caramella loves people and enjoys cuddling up with you on the couch. She purrs frequently and loves to be petted.

Caramella is timid toward other cats so she needs just the right feline buddy. It took her some time to warm up to the other kitties in her foster home, but now they are all buddies and like to chase each other back and forth around the house. The resident cats are pretty mellow themselves but like to play gently - just what Carmella needs in a feline buddy.

This sweet kitty was found outdoors in the cold apparently abandoned along with another cat by a resident in an apartment complex. The other kitty was taken in by another resident and Carmella was transferred to our care. We are now looking for the right home for Carmella.

Carson & Letterman
These kittens are socialites!
CARSON & LETTERMAN are incredibly social, easy-going and affectionate. They are very people-oriented, and thrive in a home where there is lots of activity and where they will get a lot of attention. They are good friends and need to be adopted together.

They like to snuggle with the kids in their foster home during TV time. They are also happy playing a game of chase with a string or simply pushing around a furry mouse to entertain themselves.

Carson and Letterman may join a forever home with any level of activity. And they do well with adult cats and calm dogs too.

These kittens came into SPCA's care along with their 4 other siblings (already adopted) from a local shelter.

Cassidy & Nora
Eliza Doolittle move over!
CASSIDY & NORA are beautiful kitties - one a tuxedo, the other solid black. Their manners are impeccable. When their foster family enters the room they run to greet them 'chatting.' Both are people-oriented kittens.

CASSIDY (black/white tuxedo) is a little more reserved than her sister and has fancy white markings on her paws that look like saddle shoes. She doesn't love to be held for long periods of time but her good manners and breeding do not allow her to fuss or fight to get down. Cassidy just sits in your arms until a reasonable time has elapsed, then daintily jumps down.

NORA (black) likes to engage in conversation and drape herself around your neck when you are sitting down. She also loves to be held and purrs loudly whenever she is petted.

These two are inseparable and must be adopted together. When one leaves the room, the other one calls to her until the girls are reunited. They have been exposed to adult cats, and are best suited for a home with older children/adults in a quiet to moderately active household.

These girls were rescued from outdoors as tiny babies and have transformed into lovely ladies.

Clover
Clover loves to play!
CLOVER is a friendly and absolutely adorable little kitty. She likes to greet you at the door and keeps you company when you are cooking or cleaning or just hanging out. It's amazing how easily Clover settles into a new home! And it doesn't take her long to find her way into your lap for some petting or a little nap. She is also a cuddler and likes to sleep with you at night.

While Clover is pretty mellow, she is also playful. She especially likes it when you initiate play with her with toys. She is also happy to watch the world go by from a window or screen door. Clover loves getting attention and will try to get your attention if you are busy doing something without her - such as talking on the phone!

Clover's initial foster home had other cats and dogs and she was fine with both. She is currently in a foster home as the only pet and Clover seems to be a little bored by herself - which has resulted in her being a little 'nippy' when she wants attention. This usually means a cat needs another cat to play with. Or it could just be that she needs plenty of interactive play time with her human friends.

Clover came into our care after being found outdoors literally starving to death only weighing 4 pounds. She now weighs 8 pounds - her ideal weight. Clover is a happy and healthy girl who is now looking for a loving home of her own.

Cookie & Ruffles
These kittens are full of energy!
COOKIE & RUFFLES are sweet, friendly, playful kittens. They have very compatible personalities which complement each other nicely. They need to be adopted as a pair.

COOKIE (black/white medium-haired) could be the top model of the cat world. Her white whiskers beautifully accentuate her perfect facial features. Cookie loves hanging out with her foster parents and her brother, Ruffles, but also has an independent streak. Cookie can entertain herself with toys and when not busy playing, seeks human affection and is very loving. Cookie is guaranteed to bring joy to your life!

RUFFLES (orange tabby, short-haired) is a fun boy who loves to play. He is guaranteed to bring you lots of joy with his kitten antics. Give him a cat toy to play with and you will have an hour of entertainment! Ruffles also absolutely LOVES cuddle time and needs you to include that in your schedule. He will make the perfect feline addition to any cat-loving home.

Cookie and Ruffles came into our care with their siblings, Ruby and Chip (to be posted separately). Believe it or not - they arrived in our care in a cardboard box - malnourished, dehydrated and loaded with fleas and parasites. Now healthy and growing up fast, they are ready for a home of their own.

Crackle & Pop

CRACKLE & POP are friendly, loving kittens with cute little personalities. Their brother, Snap, has been adopted!

CRACKLE (female, classic tabby) & POP (male, tabby) are happy to keep each other entertained. They have soft purr motors and like chasing each other up and down the cat tree.

Crackle & Pop can be adopted as a pair, with another compatible SPCA kitten or into a home with a compatible young feline. They need a forever home or homes either with adults or older, quieter kids would be fine.

These kittens have been exposed to adult cats and laid-back, cat-friendly large dogs. They are comfortable with both cats and dogs! They came into our care from outdoors after their mom was hit by a car.

Fawn & Fecility
These girls have gorgeous, unusual coloring.
FAWN & FELICITY

These girls are a bonded pair and have incredibly sweet dispositions.

They both have such unique colors, and their pictures don't quite portray the unique hues of their soft fur: Fawn's fur (buff & white) is more taupe and Felicity's coat (gray) is a soft gray with almost a violet hue.

These girls adapt easily to new surroundings, have a gentle playing style, and are comfortable in a home with dogs, adult cats and older children. They have nice purr motors and love to snuggle with their foster family, who they almost never let out of their sight.

Fawn and Felicity came into SPCA care from a local shelter as tiny kittens and are now ready for their forever home.

Ginger is pure sweetness!
GINGER is a sweet, calm and affectionate cat who loves people! She likes to curl up with people and starts purring immediately when you pet her. If you stop petting her, you will be rewarded with a head butt and a show of her belly to entice you to continue.

Ginger needs a home with adults or older children where she will be the only pet in the household. She has been exposed to dogs in a foster home and they make her nervous. Just give her people and lots of love and this sweet girl will reward you with a life time of companionship and affection!

Ginger came into our care from a local shelter with a litter of kittens.

HAYDEN (orange tabby) & HARPER (Siamese-mix) are a bonded brother pair who seek each other out for playtime and nap time. They have soft purr motors, love to play with toys, and interested in everything that goes on in their foster home.

These boys are comfortable with adult cats, large cat-friendly dogs, and elementary school-aged kids. They will do well in quiet to moderately active homes. They came into SPCA's care from a local farm via a local rescue group that focuses on trap/neuter/return programs.

Hershey & Godiva
These girls are cuddlers!
HERSHEY & GODIVA are two sweet little girls who love cuddling almost as much as they love playing with each other and with dangly toys. They are bonded and must be adopted together.

HERSHEY is quite a bit bigger than her sister, Godiva. She was also more outgoing when they were rescued, but her playfulness has been so infectious that Hershey has brought her sister out of her shell too! Hershey has an irrepressible attitude and a fearless disposition, and loves nuzzling your neck for snuggles as much as she loves playing. She has a GORGEOUS tabby coat with spots on her belly and two shades of brown - dark brown and golden brown.

GODIVA is a sweet girl who is a little more independent than her sister. She loves exploring her foster home and climbing to the top of the cat tree to have a look around. Godiva is known for sneaking up on you for a snuggle when you're sitting quietly and plays with gusto when you get a toy out.

These girls get along great with the resident cat and dog in their foster home - Trooper, a big orange tabby and Maggie, a dachshund-mix. Both girls have enjoyed playtime with well-behaved children, too, and would love to go home with a family ready to give them lots of attention.

These girls were rescued from someone's backyard when they were tiny kittens.

Ike
Ike is a sweet and gentle kitty.
IKE is a gorgeous all white cat with beautiful blue eyes. He is a very sweet boy who is both laid-back and curious. Ike likes to spend his days napping by the window and batting his stuffed mouse around the floor like a hockey player! At night, he sleeps at the end of his foster mom's bed and is content to sleep in until she gets up.

Ike settles in easily into a new home and likes to explore his surroundings. He loves being petted and brushed and nudges your hand with his head until you give him a good scratch behind the ears. Ike likes hanging out with his human buddies but also needs to have other pets around to keep him company. Ike does well with both like-minded, low-key cats and dogs.

Ike was adopted out as a kitten with his sibling but returned to our care when his home became too active for him. Ike likes to be around activity, but his low-key personality is best suited for a relatively calm home environment.

Ike is on special prescription food to prevent crystals in his urine. He needs to stay on this special food for the rest of his life. Ike needs a caretaker who will be diligent about making sure he is kept 100% on this food and gets regular annual checkups at the vet.

Note: We waive adoption fees for special needs kitties like Ike.

Izzy (Isabelle)
Izzy is pure sweetness!
IZZY is as sweet as they come! She loves affection and to be around her people, often curled up next to you on the bed. Izzy loves to be petted, especially on her cheeks and side, and purrs loudly to show her appreciation and often stares up at you lovingly with her big, beautiful green eyes!

At times, Izzy can be very talkative, while other times she is very quiet and laid back. Izzy is a big girl and a bit overweight, but her foster mom is working hard to get her to a healthier size. Although, her weight doesn't stop her from jumping up on the bed or playing a game of catch the string! Izzy is such a loving and affectionate cat who will make the perfect companion to anyone lucky enough to have her!

Izzy was sadly returned to the SPCA's care after three years after her family could no longer keep her due to personal issues. She is use to being around other cats and dogs and does will with other critters.

Jackson
Jackson is a sweet, loving boy!
JACKSON is a sweet, friendly boy who loves being around people. His favorite thing is to snuggle up next to you on the couch, especially loving one-on-one time with you in the early mornings. He also enjoys looking out the windows and sunbathing when the sun shines through the window.

Jackson is moderately playful and likes to entertains himself with kitty toys. He also likes to sit in kitchen chairs to survey an entire area. He is a curious cat who likes to explore new spaces. Jackson needs a home where his humans let him choose whether he wants to sleep on their bed at night.

We have not seen Jackson interact with other cats, but like most young males, we think he needs a sweet, moderately playful male feline buddy to keep him company. He came from a home with dogs and we're told he did well with them although we don't know if he co-existed or whether he really enjoyed their company. Jackson is also a 'social' eater - he often waits to eat his meal until you are sitting or standing next to him.

Jackson needs a quiet to moderately active home that suits his personality. This sweet boy came into our care after he was abandoned by a college student at the end of the school year. Jackson is lucky that a roommate brought him home to live with his parents until a new home could be found for him.

Jackson is a truly wonderful kitty who is looking for a home of his own.

Joan Jett & Stevie Ray
Meet the entertainers!
JOAN JETT & STEVIE RAY

Note: These kittens are bigger now. We will post updated photos shortly.

These kittens may be adopted together or separately into a home with another like-minded kitty companion.

JOAN JETT - True to her name, Joan Jett rocks 'n rolls through her days as a big personality in a small package. She is very outgoing and loves to keep her foster family entertained with her kitten antics and boisterous nature.

STEVIE RAY has a more subdued personality and is content watching movies with his foster family or playing chase with Joan. He also likes to keep a vigilant eye on the food bowl for a serving of wet food that magically appears twice a day.

These kittens have been exposed to dogs, adult cats and kids and are comfortable with any activity level in the household. They came into our care, along with the 4 other siblings (Meatloaf, Jackie, Cherie, & Lita - all adopted!) and their mom from outdoors. They have had lots of human interaction since they were 2 weeks old and are a good fit for any type of home.

These kittens provide each other with constant entertainment by chasing each other, batting around toy mice and grooming each other at nap time. They have soft purr motors they love to turn on when they are snuggling up with each other or showing their affection toward their foster family.

They are in a foster home with a small dog with a fluffy tail, which they love to swat at. They love the attention they have received from the older children in their foster home and neighborhood kids.

Katherine & Mason
These kitties are amazing!
KATHERINE & MASON are adorable buddies who need to be adopted together. These best buddies need a quiet home with patient caretakers who understand Katherine's special needs.

KATHERINE is a happy, friendly special needs girl who came into SPCA's care as a tiny kitten who fit into the palm of your hand. She was found by a young girl on the side of the road. Katherine has a slight head tilt and it sways back and forth a bit but this doesn't affect her balance - she has no problem walking a straight line or jumping up and down on things. She has been evaluated by a veterinary neurologist who says her slight neurological disorder is most likely caused by a congenital defect near her inner ear. Katherine functions well, her condition will not change over time and no medication is needed. However, her forever family needs to be patient when introducing her to new surroundings, and be sensitive to the impact loud noises have on her. When Katherine was 3 months old, she was introduced to Mason in her foster home. He has become her best buddy and her 'rock'.

MASON is a gorgeous fluffy orange kitty. He is a friendly kitty who is confident and mellow. He has a loud purr motor and loves to be cuddled by his foster family. Mason has active, playful moments but he's more of a couch potato! This sweet boy has also learned to watch over his buddy, Katherine. They are never far away from each other and make an interesting pair of lovable kitties. Mason was found outdoors all by himself as a young kitten by a mail carrier. He simply walked up and introduced himself! Who could resist taking in this orange ball of fur?

These kitties do fine with adult cats, laid-back, cat-friendly dogs and understanding kids. They are special kitties who are looking for a special home.

Lacey & Samantha
These girls are soul-mates!
LACEY & SAMANTHA aren't sisters but became good buddies in their foster home. They are never far apart from each other and need to be adopted together.

LACEY (brown tabby, medium-haired) has an incredibly sweet disposition. She gives kitty kisses to her foster mom, and actively seeks time on her foster mom's lap for a cat nap.

SAMANTHA (gray tabby, short-haired) is very people oriented. She has a loud purr motor and demands attention by rubbing against her foster mom's legs, or chirping or jumping onto the keyboard when her foster mom is working. When arriving in our care, Samantha had an ulcerated cornea which required immediate medical attention to save her eye. Now fully recovered, she has the slightest spot of scaring on her right eye, but it does not affect her sight and the scar will continue to fade with time.

These girls are in an active foster home with dogs, adult cats and children and adult cats. They will adapt well to just about any type of home.

Lacey came into SPCA's care from a local shelter. Samantha was rescued from the great outdoors.

LOGAN is the spunky one. She spends her days keeping tabs on her human friends. She also instigates play with her brother, the foster family's dogs or anyone else who is willing to partake in a feather wand game.

This pair is comfortable in any surrounding, adapts easily to new situations and are a great addition to a forever home with any level of activity.

They came into our care from a local shelter.

Mac
Mac is a sweetheart!
MAC is a sweet and curious cat. He loves to spend his days looking out the window, watching the birds and squirrels that pass by. He is content lounging on his own in a cozy corner, but always enjoys being petted.

Mac likes to sprawl out on the floor to have his stomach rubbed, sometimes holding on to your hand with his paws to keep you from stopping. Mac likes to sleep on his own, preferring the floor or a quiet corner to the couch or bed. He does not initiate play on his own, but will engage with toys when presented to him. So get those cat toys ready to get him interested in playing!

Mac is still settling into his foster home after being rescued from outdoors. He is getting comfortable with his foster mom, growing more affectionate each day by rubbing up against her legs and nudging her hands when he wants to be petted. He is a little shy with new people, and loud, unfamiliar noises. Once he observes visitors in his foster home, he warms up to them easily. We haven't seen Mac interact with dogs, other cats or kids. He will adapt easiest to a relatively quiet home, probably as the only pet although he may do fine with a low-key, friendly feline.

Mac was found outside a McDonald's - scared and hungry. The kind woman who found him was able to pick him up, put him in the back seat of her car and drive him home. Obviously, Mac belonged to someone at some point. He's a sweet boy who doesn't deserve to be living on the streets!

Maple - Adoption Pending!
Maple will charm you with her sweet demeanor!
MAPLE is a total sweetheart. She walks around purring and when laying down loves to knead in the air. Maple also loves to play with a feather wand, and bat around toy mice. She likes to talk when you talk to her - so cute!

Maple likes to follow her foster mom around the house, looking for any opportunity to sit on her lap, rub against her legs or jump to a higher spot to be within reach of her hand. Maple is very affectionate and needs a home where her caretaker(s) is around to give her lots of love and affection - such as someone who works from home some days of the week. A single person home who works long hours outside the home would not be the best arrangement for her - Maple would get lonely. She would also do fine with older, quiet kids and would love the added attention a family could give her.

Maple needs a quiet to moderately active household. It will take her just a few days or so to settle into a new home. Maple doesn't like to be left alone at night and wants to have the freedom to sleep on her guardian's bed at night. She loves sleeping in a cat bed her foster mom has provided for her. And, although exposed to dogs and other cats, Maple seems to be happiest as an only kitty.

Maple came into SPCA's care as a young from a local shelter as an expectant mother. She gave birth to her 2 kittens (Boots & Mittens - adopted!) two days after settling into her foster home. Now that her kittens have been adopted, Maple is ready for her forever home, too!

Maverick
Maverick has a big personality!
MAVERICK is an outgoing, confident boy who loves, loves, loves the dog in his foster family's home. This handsome boy is also happiest with children to play with him, and he is easily entertained by anything with a feather.

Maverick is looking for a like-minded buddy to call his own, and a forever home with a dog would be ideal. Any type of activity level in his forever home would be fine.

This friendly boy came into our care from a local shelter.

Meatball & Megellan

MEATBALL (black with white, medium-haired) is a loverboy and is the explorer in this duo.

These boys play with ANY toy given to them or like playing with people. They are very personable boys with medium level activity. They love getting attention from neighborhood kids.

These boys came into our care, along with their mom, Tilly, and their brothers, Astro and Smudge (adoption pending!), from a local shelter when they were only 1 week old.

Mira & Mimi
These girls are amazing!
MIRA & MIMI are surrogate sisters who are good little buddies and need to be adopted as a pair.

MIRA is a sweet, friendly teenager. She is very people oriented and turns on her purr motor the minute she sees you. Mira loves to be petted and rubs up against you to show her affection. This sweet girl is also playful and quite adventurous. She loves playing with Mimi, batting toys around or pouncing on anything that moves. (Note: June 2016 - we just discovered Mira has a luxating patella in one of her back legs - knee cap slips out of place; we don't know yet if this can be managed or if she will need surgery at 1 year of age at SPCA's expense).

At one week of age, Mira was rescued from outdoors as an orphaned kitten with her siblings. Her surrogate mom, Olive, is Mimi's biological mom. Mira and Mimi have been together since they were about a week old.

MIMI is a sweet, low-key girl who likes hanging out with her surrogate sister, Mira. She is as soft as a bunny rabbit and loves to flop down on the floor and stretch out asking you to pet her! She loves to be petted and having her face stroked. Mimi loves being held and even at this young age is a lap cat! She is a tad bit shy and startles with loud noises so she will need a little time to adapt to a new home.

Mimi has very minor neurological challenges keeping her balance, but has learned to compensate amazingly well. She gets around just fine, has no problem using the litter box and does great playing with Mira. Sadly, Mimi's mom received a distemper vaccination at a local shelter when she was pregnant which has caused Mimi's condition.

These girls are waiting for a forever home of their own with no young children, dogs or other cats.

Murissa
This girl is a little princess!
MURISSA is a friendly little diva! This petite girl loves to greet you at the door and rub up against your legs as she chirps to greet you. Murissa is also very playful and especially likes playing with the Cat's Meow and strings.

Being the diva that she is, Murissa likes hanging out with her foster mom and being petted behind her ears and on her neck. However, she does not like full body rubs and nips at your hand if you do this. Some cats are just a little too sensitive to being touched in certain places and Murissa is one of these kitties.

Murissa likes to sleep on her foster mom's bed at night but typically gets up in the middle of the night to wander around and find a new place to sleep. She has really come out of her shell in our care and we think Murissa will continue to become friendlier and probably more comfortable with being handled once she gets more comfortable in her new surroundings.

Murissa came into our care with a litter of kittens from a local shelter.

Pockets
This sweet boy just wants to be loved!
POCKETS is a very sweet, moderately playful kitty. He loves being petted and brushed and getting belly rubs. While Pockets adores people, he can be timid when meeting new people. Once Pockets gets to know you and feels safe in his surroundings, he LOVES to hang out with you and comes running when you call his name!

Pockets is also playful and good at keeping himself occupied with toys. He loves to empty out his toy box then carry toys around. Pockets is learning to play fetch with fuzzy balls, but sometimes forgets to bring them back to you!

Pockets needs a low-key, but playful, like-minded kitty to bond and play with. Pockets gets lonely when his human companions are away from home so having a feline buddy who likes other cats is important for him. Pockets needs a quiet home without young children now or in the future. He will also do best in a home that will be relatively stable over time (e.g., without lots of moving around).

Pockets was found outdoors covered in scabs and sores, and had a very thin coat with patches of missing fur. He was infested with fleas and had developed a secondary bacterial skin infection. His skin has healed and his coat has grown back so he is now a fluffy boy. Pockets has had occasional bouts of skin irritation so we think he has other allergies, possibly to food or environmental allergens. He is not currently on any medications but eats prescription hypoallergenic food.

Note: We waive adoption fees for special needs kitties like Pockets.

Quinn
Quinn is a slightly cross-eyed boy who LOVES dogs!
QUINN is an inquisitive and loving young male cat who loves to play. He likes being petted and sleeping on the bed with you at night. He's even quite a cuddle bug when he wants to be!

Quinn adapted almost immediately to his foster home and is great with the two resident dogs in his foster home. He is very accepting of the 8 1/2 year old Pug. They can be found laying close together on the bed at night or on the pet pillows in front of the sliding glass doors soaking up the sun and checking out the neighborhood activity. Quinn is quite playful with his foster parents' Lab/Boxer 10 month old puppy, Lucy. Quinn and Lucy love to talk to each other and play. We really want Quinn's forever home to have a cat-friendly dog to keep him company!

Quinn loves breakfast and dinner time. He practically runs you over to get to the kitchen and his bowl! Quinn likes human companionship and follow you around to see what is going on and if he can help!

Quinn was a skinny, stray kitty found outdoors by the neighbor of an SPCA volunteer. We have not seen Quinn interact with cats so we don't know how he would do with a feline buddy. But we know he does great with cat-friendly dogs. Quinn is a little ball of joy who will charm his way into your heart and hopefully your home!

Ruby Tuesday
Ruby is friendly and sassy!
RUBY TUESDAY is a multi-dimensional kitty. She is friendly and playful. She is also sweet and independent...and just a little bit sassy! Ruby does great with cat-friendly dogs, but probably needs to be the only cat in the household.

Ruby loves being around people and always wants to be where the action is. She follows her foster mom around everywhere. When she hears the door-bell ring, she runs to the door to greet whoever is there. Ruby is a very polite and well-behaved kitty who always uses her scratching posts and never jumps on the kitchen counter. Her favorite past-time is being brushed, which she loves even more than her treats. And speaking of treats, she is probably the only cat you'll find who stands up on her back legs to beg for treats!

Ruby is very playful and makes anything she can swat into a toy. She loves chasing a tennis ball - even though it belongs to her canine friend, Cassie! It took Ruby a little while to get use to Cassie, but now her favorite pass-time is waiting around corners and pouncing in front of Cassie when she walks by. Ruby adapts to various situations easily, from workmen fixing the floors, ambulances driving by, overnight guests, or vocal Superbowl parties.

Ruby will make a wonderful companion to a lucky person or family with older kids who can give this great kitty a forever home!

Salvador
Salvador is a teddy bear in a cat's suit!
SALVADOR is a very friendly and affectionate kitty. He is both mellow and moderately playful.

On his mellow side, Salvador loves to put his paws on his foster mom's shoulders and snuggle under her chin. He even likes to be picked up and held for short periods of time. Salvador has a nice purr motor, and appreciates being doted upon. This sweet boy is often content window watching and monitoring household activities. Salvador likes to sleep at the foot of one of the beds in his foster home.

However, Salvador has a playful side as well. He likes to play with toy mice, balls, crumpled up paper and feather teasers and responds to catnip-filled toys! Salvador also has short bursts of energy and scampers throughout his foster home looking for interactive play. He sometimes jumps out and 'ambushes' his foster family looking for interactive play. He can also get a little nippy when playing or when he's had enough petting. This type of play tells us that Salvador needs a feline buddy to chase, pounce on and wrestle with - but in a relatively gentle fashion.

Salvador has been in two different types of foster homes - one with both cats and cat-friendly dogs, and a second one as the only pet. It's clear that he needs feline interaction. And while he was not fazed by the dogs in his previous foster home, he didn't interact with them much.

Salvador is looking for a quiet to moderately active home where he will get human interaction, and has at least one like-minded kitty to bond and play with. This sweet boy came into our care from a local shelter.

SAPPHIRE (black w/ white on belly and chest, male) is smart and very curious.

Sapphire needs to be adopted along with a like-minded SPCA kitten or into a home with a young, compatible feline buddy.

Sapphire came into our care, with his siblings Midnight, Tiger, Cali & White Tail (all adopted!) from a local shelter with their mom, Ember.

Tia
Tia loves to pose for the camera!
TIA is not your average calico kitty. She is a native of Guyana, South America, who left behind hunting exotic birds and lizards, and climbing coconut trees, to live the American Dream.

Even though Tia is an indoor-only kitty now, she won't hesitate to show you her lightning-fast speed to catch a toy or get to her next meal. She is a talkative kitty, especially when it comes to food. If you rub her head and talk to her sweetly, she purrs non-stop. Since she is just a 'teenager,' Tia needs some gentle reminders about house rules, such as not jumping up on kitchen counter tops.

Tia adapts well to new surroundings and needs another playful female kitty to bond and play with. She is a tiny cat - only about 7 pounds. Without a feline buddy, Tia is a bit too playfully rambunctious and can get a little nippy. Tia also needs a family to shower her with love and affection.

Tia was brought to the U.S. by a Peace Corp volunteer who just couldn't leave this sweet girl behind when she returned to the U.S. Tia is a little too energetic for the older kitty in this Peace Corp volunteer's home so she has asked for help finding Tia a new home with the right feline playmate.

Tilly
Tilly is playful and curious!
TILLY is a curious girl who likes to be where the action is. She loves to play, especially with her fuzzy mice or ping-pong balls.

Although initially a bit hesitant, Tilly has warmed up quickly to the other foster kitties in her foster home and often instigates them in a game of chase. She loves sleeping in between her foster parents at night and has an adorable chirp she uses when she wants attention.

Tilly is comfortable in a home with cat friendly, laid-back dogs, older children and would probably like another feline companion who will patiently teach her how to play.

Tilly came into our care from a local shelter with a litter of kittens.

Tina
Tina is a talker!
TINA is a sweet, chatty kitty who loves being the center of attention. She loves being around people and settles easily into a new environment. Tina is a well behaved kitty who is great about using her scratching post.

Tina loves rubbing against your legs in hopes of a good petting. Tina has a loud purr motor and enjoys batting her toys around the house. When she sees you enter the room, Tina lets out an adorable chirp and looks up at you, waiting for some attention.

This adorable kitty loves being picked up and often follows you around when she wants to be held. Tina loves napping on her cat tree, but at night she always comes to sleep in your room. A talkative kitty, she meows when you leave the house and welcomes you back when you're home.

Tina enjoys looking out the window, watching the activities outside. She would be a great addition to a family without other pets.

Vivian (aka Vivvie)
Vivian will keep you on your toes!
VIVIAN is a beautiful classic tabby with of bold markings and an equally bold personality!

Vivvie is a bundle of energy. She romps playfully with her foster sister but after Vivvie wears her out, Vivvie has to make her own fun. Anything is fair game - paper clips, pieces of paper, dust bunnies. She explores and gets into everything so kitten-proofing is crucial. Vivian is fearless and not intimidated one bit by the big resident cats in her foster home.

While she enjoys interactive wand toys as well,
Vivvie's favorite game is fetch, retrieving her toy mice, crinkle balls, and other toys thrown for her. Be prepared for many innings of play!

Despite her high level of energy, Vivvie still finds time for snuggles. She loves to be petted and just calling 'where's Vivvie?' brings her running and turns her purr motor on full blast.

Vivian was among a group of young kittens that were rescued from outdoors as younger kittens. She was friendly and affectionate from the start and has acclimated well to an indoor-only environment. Vivian needs a forever home with a like-minded, energetic young kitty to bond and play with.
