|Arthur & Colby|
ARTHUR is pretty outgoing and confident. He loves to lay in his foster moms lap and sleep under the covers with his foster parents at night. He plays harder than his brother, Colby, and is the fastest at catching wand toys.
COLBY (aka "Sweetie Boy") has soft fur and a white tipped tail! He is very affectionate toward his foster mom and likes nuzzling her. He has a very quiet purr and a low-key personality. He recently discovered that he can entertain himself with furry toy mice! Colby is a little shy with new people and startles around loud noises so he needs a quiet reassuring home. He loves being at the top of a cat tree which is a must in his forever home!
These boys need a home together. Because Colby is a little shy, they need a quiet home without young children or dogs. Once settled in, they will provide their guardian with an unlimited amount of love and affection!
Candy enjoys life in her foster home, greeting her foster mother at the door every day upon her return from work. She loves to eat, lounge around the house, splash around in the bathtub (right after someone takes a shower), and investigate every nook and cranny she can find. However, being the lap cat that she is, her favorite activities are snuggling and getting lots of strokes and TLC. Candy is a happy cat and displays her contentment in a deep, incessant purr that will melt your heart!
We don’t know where Candy came from or how she ended up on the streets. However, for a senior kitty, she is amazingly healthy. She has a bit of arthritis and is being treated for asthma with a low dose of steroids every other day. Despite her hardships, this sweet girl has remained a loving, happy little cat who wants to share her love and affection with a special person. Candy needs a quiet, low-key home that will give her the love she deserves.
If you would like to learn more about Candy and help us care for her, please consider being her Guardian Angel.

|Candy, Spooky, Jack & Pumpkin|
These adorable siblings were rescued from a window well outside someone's basement when they were barely 4 weeks old. They are friendly, playful, and loving and do well with children. They need to be adopted with a sibling, another compatible SPCA kitten or into a home with an existing young cat.
CANDY CORN (or just Candy!) (Adopted!) is a beautiful mix of gray and beige, with stripes of both colors on her belly. She is the smallest in the litter and the only girl, so she ends up wrestling and playing a lot and then seeking long naps to replenish her energy. One favorite napping spot is next to or on her foster mom's lap. Candy likes to play with socks, her tunnel, and her siblings. She is a little bit sassy at times, so it may take Candy a little while to adjust a new home. Her favorite sibling is Spooky, because he is the gentlest with her.
SPOOKY (Adopted!) is a super sweet beige medium-haired kitten. He loves to play with small balls and to nap and play with his siblings. Spooky also really enjoys human interaction and attention, frequently climbing up to sit in his foster mom's lap to be petted. Spooky likes to cuddle up with one of his siblings to relax. He is very friendly and purrs easily.
JACK (O'Lantern) (Adopted!) is a beautiful, sweet dark gray medium-haired kitten. He is playful but also very laid back. Jack loves climbing his scratching post or his kitty condo. He enjoys playing with a shoe string, toys with bells, or his mouse toy. He is very well-behaved and friendly. Jack would probably do fine with a cat-friendly dog and another cat.
PUMPKIN (Adopted!) is a handsome beige fuzzy kitten. He is pretty active and always wants to see what is going on. Pumpkin is a real explorer, trying to follow his foster mom everywhere she goes, even into forbidden places such as cabinets, the refrigerator or the garage! Pumpkin is extremely friendly and loving with a loud purr motor. He loves wrestling with his siblings or chasing a small ball through his cat tunnel. Pumpkin also loves taking naps in his foster mom’s lap.
Charly was rescued the day before Hurricane Sandy hit our area. Sadly, he had been roaming his neighborhood for several months while being fed by his current caretaker. Charly will be shy initially with new people, but he has bonded well with his foster mom. When found, he was already neutered so we know Charly had a home at one point in his life and he deserves to be safe in a future home of his own.
He doesn’t do well with the other male cats in his foster home. He may do ok with a friendly, low-key female cat or he may prefer to be the only pet in the household. Charly will flourish in a quiet, loving and patient forever home.
|Cookie & Brownie - Adoption Pending!|
They love to bat around toy mice with each other, chase feather wands, and play chase. Cookie is a little hesitant about new experiences, while Brownie is constantly exploring new territory while reassuring his sister that new adventures are fun. With Brownie’s reassurance, it doesn't take long for Cookie to agree.
During nap time, they LOVE to curl up with each other. Cookie takes the responsibility of making sure they are both well groomed before snoozing. Both kitties have nice purr motors to show their pleasure when being held and petted. They are never far from their foster family in case there is an opportunity for affection!
Cookie and Brownie were rescued as tiny babies outdoors along with two other siblings (adopted). They will be happiest in a home that is quiet to moderate activity. A laid back cat-friendly dog would be ok, too. Since they are such good friends, they must be adopted together.
|Dora & Diego|
DORA is a very sweet, affectionate little girl. She is more timid than her brother when meeting new people. She loves to find a quiet place to lay or hide out when her brother is in his rambunctious mood. But Dora also likes to join in when she is feeling energetic herself.
DIEGO is an energetic, fun kitty that loves to rile his sister up and get her to join in on his fun. He loves to play, but he also has a calm, sweet side. When he’s feeling mellow, Diego lays in his foster mom's lap when he’s tuckered out. Although Diego likes to chase his sister around, he also adores her and looks out for her. If Dora is missing from the room for more than a couple minutes, he goes looking for her!
Dora and Diego settled into their foster home after about a week and are growing more and more comfortable to the everyday noises of an apartment building. They need to be adopted together into a quiet home without young children.
|Eileen (Leena) & Siri|
LEENA is a beautiful gray tabby with splashes of peach. She is a very friendly kitten with a nice purr and a gentle disposition. Leena loves being a “big sister” to her foster buddy, Siri. Her favorite toys are little pom-pom balls and a feather teaser which she carries around very proudly. Leena is a sweet and curious little girl who is equally playful and cuddly.
SIRI is an absolutely adorable black and white tuxedo - all dressed up and looking for a home of her own! She is as friendly as can be and absolutely loves (did we say LOVES!) to play. Siri loves to 'hunt' her prey (toy mice) and bat around anything that moves (or looks like it can be moved). When Siri is tuckered out, she loves to be picked up and cuddled. She has a very loud purr which she turns on the minute she sees a friendly human face.
These girls were rescued from outdoors as young kittens. Leena was found with a hip injury that immobilized her right leg. After two months of physical therapy to strengthen and improve the range of motion in her hip, Leena has made a full recovery. Siri was found all by herself sitting on top of a tire crying for help. She must have gotten separated from her mom and siblings. Smart kitten to call for help! Now paired up in a foster home, Leena and Siri are best buddies!
Emmy, and her sister Izzy, were adopted out from SPCA as young kittens. They both initially thrived in their home with two kids. But as things changed over time, the family grew to include four kids and a German Shepard. This active home was a bit too much for both kitties.
Emmy needs to be the only cat in her forever home, but may do ok with a friendly, low-key dog. She also needs an adult home or one with older kids who will respect her need for her own space. If you are looking for an easy-going kitty who loves people, Emmy may be the right kitty for you!
|Emmy & Grammy|
EMMY loves cuddling up with her sister Grammy for nice long naps. And she enjoys the company of other friendly cats, playing and hanging out with them. On nice warm days, she truly enjoys lounging on her foster family’s 2nd story deck. Emmy is the last to come in from the deck on summer evenings and often has to be “persuaded” to come in.
GRAMMY loves being with other cats as well. She is shy with people other than her foster family. Grammy loves awaiting her canned food treat each morning and evening...rubbing up against her foster mom then stretching up toward the counter on her hind legs to get a good look at her treat!
These girls need a quiet home with a patient caretaker who will give them time to adapt to new surroundings. They would do well with another friendly, low key cat to keep them company.
Unlike most kittens, Fluffy seems to be happiest as the only kitty (or pet) in the household. She doesn't interact much with other kitties in her foster home and is very good at entertaining herself. Fluffy likes to carry a string around for fun or pounce on toys. She is playful, but not overly rambunctious. She will do best in a quiet to moderately active home.
Fluffy was rescued along with her siblings (all adopted) from a local farm when they were tiny babies. She is a sweet girl who is looking for a home of her own.
|Gilley & Harley|
GILLEY is a sweet, petite girl. She is very gentle and loves being petted and having her head and chin scratched and her glossy black fur brushed. She LOVES to snuggle and rushes to get the best spot on your lap. She’ll stay there until you move or her sister wants to play. Gilley likes to be part of the action and stays by your side to see what you’re up to.
HARLEY is bigger than her sister; she has large paws which could mean she’ll be a big cat. She LOVES to play and chase feather wands, foil balls, laser lights, or anything else that looks like fun. Harley also likes to be brushed to keep her luxurious coat in top condition (she wears a tuxedo after all!), and purrs to motivate you to keep brushing. She has a way to tell you whether it’s her cheek or her neck that needs attention next.
Gilley and Harley came into SPCA’s care as young kittens from outdoors. They love the indoor life and are purrrrrfect little ladies. They would do fine with a calm, cat-friendly dog and older kids in a home that isn’t too active. In their previous foster home, Harley loved the dog so much that she’d plop down really close and knead on his fur.
These girls are ready for a loving home of their own! How about yours?
Ginger will do best as the only pet in the household. She may do fine with another low-key cat, although she doesn't interact much with the two resident cats in her foster home. She prefers to hang out with her human friends. Ginger did not adjust well to the introduction of a dog in her previous home, so she needs a home without a dog.
Ginger was adopted out from SPCA as a kitten. Her family sadly gave her up when she didn’t adjust well to the new dog in the household. Ginger is a truly wonderful kitty who deserves a loving forever home that will treat her as part of the family.
GINGER has really blossomed. Once a shy kitten, she is now an extreme sports junkie -- exploring anything new, instigating the "kitty crazies" run around the living room at full speed, and and supervising all household activities. This energetic girl is also a neat freak, inspecting every litter box after cleaning, and regularly washing her toys in the water bowl. Ginger is also quite the lovebug -- insisting on kisses before breakfast, and plopping herself down on top of you for snuggling after she wears herself out playing. Ginger has perfected the big innocent eyes made famous by "Puss in Boots," which she uses each time she needs to be forgiven for shredding yet another roll of paper towels. Ginger needs to be adopted with her sister, Roxy, or into a home with another playful young female kitty.
ROXY is a laid-back little girl who becomes more gorgeous every day. Her beautiful calico coat is so soft it doesn’t feel real. She prefers to play quietly with fuzzy balls and toys on strings, but once in a while she joins her siblings in wrestling matches or the “kitty crazies.” Roxy is "hoarder of toys," taking all of the toys from upstairs down to the finished basement in case she wants to play with them at night. In order to get her foster mom’s undivided attention, Roxy has become the official “office kitty.” As soon as she hears the computer she comes running to perform her vital tasks of keeping laps warm, dusting the keyboard with her tail, and sometimes helping type (although she doesn’t spell very well!). Roxy adores the older female cat in the house, and needs to be adopted either with her sister, Ginger, or into a home with another laid-back female kitty.
These kitties came into our care, along with their brother, Special K (adopted), as young kittens after being rescued outdoors. They have grown into wonderful, loving, playful kitties who are waiting for homes of their own.
|Holly, Joy & Shari|
HOLLY is a medium-hair tabby with a wonderfully soft coat. She is stunningly beautiful with eyes that make you melt with her soft look and the tufts of hair coming out of her large alert ears. Holly loves playing and hanging out with her sisters. Holly is sweet but a tad bit shy and sometimes hangs back when her more outgoing sisters are out and about exploring and interacting with people. Holly likes to join her foster parents in the evening and snuggling with her sisters. She has a very sweet, soft purr motor. Holly needs to be adopted with one of her sisters to ease her transition to a new home.
JOY (Adoption Pending!) is a “tortie” – black and orange. The flecks of orange in her coat give her a salt and pepper look that is beautiful. Joy is energetic and often seen chasing, wrestling and grooming her sisters. She loves to climb and was the first to discover window sills and lead her sisters to a perch to watch the great outdoors. Joy also has a loud purr that seems to be “on” most of the time. She needs to be adopted with her sister, Holly, or into a home with another like-minded female kitty.
SHARI is a calico – black, orange, and white – with a beautiful orange blaze down her forehead and white paws. She is the smallest, but also the friendliest. When her foster parents open the door, she is the first to race to greet them or to make a break for it to the rest of the house. She enjoys being held and has a loud purr when petted. Shari needs to be adopted with her sister, Holly, or into a home with another like-minded kitty.
|Hurma & TonTon|
HURMA is very playful and enjoys everyone’s company. He loves to walk over his foster mom’s lap and laptop when he wants attention! Hurma loves sitting at the top of the stairs waiting for his foster mom to come home and play! Hurma has the softest and fluffiest fur and purrs loudly when stretched out for a belly rub.
TONTON is a little shy at first when meeting new people, but once he is comfortable he loves to be petted and “talks” to you when he wants attention. Although TonTon is bigger than Hurma, he is more low-key and likes to groom his brother while they lounge on the couch.
These boys were rescued along with their sister as tiny kittens from outdoors by a kind young woman. She asked for SPCA’s help finding them a home as it got more challenging to care for them plus her other two cats. Hurma and TonTon need a quiet home together without too much foot traffic since TonTon can get a little startled by new people and lots of activity.
Isaac loves to play and is somewhat rambunctious; this is understandable given he is a young male. He often finds golf balls or dog chews to bat around his foster home that he shares nicely with his canine foster sister, Honey (a very friendly lab/pit bull mix). Isaac is sweetly vocal at times; he looks at you and makes cute kitten sounds to lure you into a petting session. He likes sitting on or by your side or sleeping next to you at night.
Isaac needs a home with patient caretakers who will let him adapt at his own pace. He becomes nervous when there is quick and loud movements, so he needs a quiet adult-only home. He’s also very agile and like other young, playful cats, he likes to knock anything around that moves. Isaac is both cat and dog friendly and enjoys play-chasing with his four-legged friends.
Isaac NEEDS a cat-friendly and active four-legged companion to romp around with. He does better with just one other cat in the home, rather than multiple cats. Isaac is a great kitty for the right home who wants a cat that is affectionate, loves attention and has the patience to let him settle in on his own.
|Izzy - Adoption Pending!|
Izzy has a cute round, flat face that makes her look like she is frowning ... but she's not! She is a sweet, happy kitty. Izzy is also a POLYDACTYL – meaning she has extra toes on her front paws. Her big ‘mittens’ just add to her cuteness. Izzy is also a playful kitty. She loves batting toy mice around and playing with feather toys.
Izzy, and her sister Emmy, were adopted out from SPCA as young kittens. They both initially thrived in their home with two kids. But as things changed over time, the family grew to include four kids and a German Shepard. This active home was terribly frightening for Izzy. With all the stress in their home, Izzy and Emmy started fighting with each other. Now separated, these girls are very happy as only cats.
Izzy needs a loving forever home that is quiet to moderately active, has no other pets, and no young children now or in the future. Kids over 12 years of age would be fine as long as the home environment is low-key.
|Josie, Jillian, Jasper & Junebug|
Josie - female, orange and white
Jillian - female, dilute calico (grey, buff, white)
Jasper - male, buff and white
Junebug - female, buff and white
These kittens have been exposed to children and adult cats, and need homes with older children or adults only. Junebug and Jillian are best paired together. Jasper and Josie are searching for other compatible kitties to join them in a forever home.
JOSIE (Still available!)is the smallest in the litter, and she is the first to explore any new situation. She is a curious little girl who loves to follow her foster mom around the house, in hopes of finding something new to entertain her.
JILLIAN (Adopted!)has beautiful calico markings, and she seems to know she is a 'looker'. Jillian doesn't participate in the wrestle mania with her siblings, and prefers quieter non-contact games. She needs to be adopted with her sister, Junebug.
JASPER (Adopted!)is a lover boy with a loud purr motor, and probably a 'couch potato' in the making. He is happiest curled up on his foster mom's lap, or laying full body stretch on the couch. Jasper is a laid-back guy looking for another like-minded kitty buddy.
JUNEBUG (Adopted!)is a sweet friendly girl, who is happy to bat around toy mice and play chase with her siblings. She also appreciates a warm lap during nap time. Junebug needs to be adopted with her sister, Jillian.
These adorable kittens were discovered in the bottom of a wooden crate with 5 feet high sides in a warehouse. The mom cat did a great job of finding a place to stash her kittens where they wouldn't crawl away, but that also made it a challenge to get these kittens out when they were 5 weeks old. Luckily, they were discovered by a warehouse employee, and have been safe and warm ever since.
Kiki is very curious and likes to explore nooks and crannies…such as closets. She is also good at occupying her time by playing with toys. Kiki has a stuffed mouse her foster mom calls ‘Big Fluff’ that she carries around in her mouth while meowing. Kiki is very proud of her ‘hunting’ skills and likes to ‘announce her kill!’ She also loves watching the birds and squirrels outside and would love to have a screened in porch in her forever home!
Kiki has a cute curl at the end of her tail like a little monkey. She loves treats and likes to stand on her hind legs to reach them with her paws. Kiki will do best in a home with another friendly, but low-key cat in her forever home. We have included a photo of Kiki with her buddy, Rigby (the resident cat in her foster home). She does very well with older kids so a family would be great for her.
Kiki came into our care as a stray kitty, found by an SPCA volunteer. She is a wonderful kitty…very sweet and loving.
|Layla & Raven|
LAYLA is a true diva! When not admiring herself in a mirror, she can be found perched on top of a pillow chatting to whoever will listen to her. Layla loves to tease her sister with her tail – moving it back and forth enticing Raven to jump around trying to catch it.
RAVEN is a stunning medium-haired girl with a magnificent plume of a tail. She is a dare devil who enjoys climbing up on top of things. She’s also a cuddler who likes to sit next to her foster mom on the couch or curl up with her in bed at night.
Layla and Raven need a quiet home without dogs or children. They will take a little while to settle into a new home, but once they do they will bond well with their caretaker. They were very friendly toward the older female cats in their previous foster home, so a forever home with another sweet kitty would work well for them.
Lovebug will do best in a home with lots of activity. A family with older kids (over 12 years or so) would be a great match for her. And having plenty of room to roam around and explore would be a big plus. She has had limited interaction with other cats while in our care but we think she needs to be an only cat. She may do ok with a cat-friendly dog if introduced slowly.
Lovebug was rescued by a Good Samaritan who found her roaming the streets – starving and looking for food. She was spayed and ear-tipped before coming into our care. This tells us that she was probably rounded up as a stray kitty, spayed, and returned to the neighborhood where she was found. Lovebug was obviously someone’s pet at some point, but must have been lost or abandoned. This friendly girl doesn’t belong outdoors trying to survive on the streets. Now safe in our care, Lovebug is looking for a home to call her own.
Mabel came into our care from a local shelter, along with four tiny kittens (all adopted). We haven’t seen Mabel interact with other adult cats, but we think she may enjoy the companionship of another low-key female cat. She has been a single cat in our care for a while, so we know she can be happy as a single kitty. She just needs a loving, patient caretaker who will give her a little time to adapt. Whoever gives Mabel the forever home she truly needs will soon realize this kitty girl is a true gem.
Max needs a quite home with a patient caretaker who will give him time to settle in. We have not seen him interact with other cats but think he may enjoy the company of a like-minded feline buddy. And pairing him up with an outgoing cat might help Max become more social. Once Max gets to know you, he will steal your heart!
Max was found outdoors living on the streets. He was being fed by a kind person who asked us for help finding him a forever home. Once in our care, we discovered that Max has allergies – most likely to food and something else in the environment. Max is doing very well on special hypo-allergenic food and antihistamines. This is a regimen he needs to continue to maintain his health.
Mimi was rescued, along with her four siblings (all adopted), from outdoors when she was a tiny baby.
Muffin likes to be petted and rub up against your legs. One of her favorite past-times is to sit in the window and watch the birds and squirrels outside. Muffin is also very active and likes to run around her foster home looking for her human friends.
Muffin will do best as the only pet in the household. She came into SPCA’s care after she was left behind in the care of a roommate when her caretaker moved away. Unable to keep her long term, Muffin found her way into SPCA’s care. Muffin will give a lucky person, couple or family a friendly, furry companion – hopefully for the rest of her life!
|Murray & Shadow|
SHADOW is very friendly, loves to play, and has absolutely no fear! He is also very energetic – playing hard then sleeping hard. And when he sleeps, Shadow loves to nuzzle near your neck if he can – purring away! He also likes to try and bolt outside every chance he gets so he will do best in a home without young children coming and going or perhaps finding a forever family who lives inside a condo building without direct outdoor access. So, if you are looking for a companion who is outgoing, greets you at the door, and is “up for anything,” Shadow may be the right kitty for you!
MURRAY is a sweetheart who is more low-key than his brother, Shadow. He loves to play but takes every opportunity to jump on your lap, stretching out and relaxing. Murray loves to run and play with his brother but he’s not as “high energy.” Murray is also quite a talker – he has many different tones of meows depending upon his mood and what he wants. He’ll even carry on a long conversation with you if you keep talking to him!
Photos taken by Pictures of Character.
|Percy & Sam|
These boys are friendly, lovable boys, who love to play hide-n-seek, chase a pointer or feather wand, and climb the elaborate cat tree in their foster home. They have nice purr motors, and love human attention.
Percy and Sam are medium-level activity kittens who would do fine in any kind of forever home. They have been exposed to children, dogs and adult cats. They may be adopted together or separately into a home with another like minded feline friend.
Petunia is a wonderful kitty - she just likes to have things her way!
Pockets is also very 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!
We haven't had success integrating Pockets with other cats. We think he was most likely raised as an only cat and didn't learn 'kitty etiquette.' So he needs a home as the only pet. Because Pockets is timid, he also needs a home that is quiet to moderately active 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 is growing back nicely. He still scratches so we are trying various treatments to remedy his allergies. If Pockets is adopted before we finish assessing his allergies, SPCA will continue to cover his vet costs until the best solution is found.
If you would like to learn more about Pockets and help us care for him, please consider being his Guardian Angel.
Become Pocket's Guardian Angel!
|Qian (pronounced ch-ih-eh-n)|
Qian will do best in a home where her human friends are around to give her love and affection. Like many cats, Qian is not a fan of belly rubs, but is all for head and chin scratches. We haven’t seen her interact with other cats or dogs, but we think she would be fine with either assuming they are cat-friendly. Since Qian is so playful, she would probably enjoy chasing and wrestling with a like-minded feline buddy.
Qian had been living on her own outdoors for quite some time, being fed by a kind woman (named Qian!). She was already spayed and is friendly with people – so we know she once belonged to someone. Qian is the perfect cat for someone who wants a friendly, playful people-oriented kitty companion!
|Rosie & Violet|
ROSIE is sweet and playful, but less rambunctious than her sister, Violet. Maybe that’s because Rosie is quite a bit smaller! She does, however, adore her big sister. Rosie loves to follow her around when Violet is off exploring – saying wait for me! When she is done playing she likes taking a nap curled up with her sister, or in your lap.
VIOLET is friendly and playful – a bit more adventurous than her sister, Rosie. Violet loves exploring and taking the lead investigating every nook and cranny of her foster home. Violet loves pouncing on toy mice and batting anything around that is moveable with her little paws. When she is tuckered out, she likes to curl up with her sister.
Rosie and Violet were rescued, along with 6 other kittens, after being discovered living under someone's deck. They came into our care when they were tiny babies. Now big enough to conquer the world, they are ready for a home of their own.
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!
Tally is looking for a special home. She needs to be the only pet in the household where she can be ‘queen of the castle!’ She will thrive in a quiet to moderately active home with a person, couple or family that wants a cuddle-bug and can give her lots of love and attention. Tally will return your affection a thousand times over!
Tally also needs a home that can care for her special health needs. Shortly after coming into SPCA’s care, we discovered Tally has a heart murmur. After visiting a veterinary cardiologist, we learned that Tally has heart disease. She takes medication daily (hidden in her food) and will need monitoring by a vet over the years. Tally is a happy girl who shows no signs of heart disease. She is expected to live many more years with appropriate medication and monitoring.
Tally was adopted out with her brother, Max, when they were kittens. Tally was recently returned to SPCA’s care and Max went to live with a family member when the new baby in their home developed allergies to cats. If you are looking for a loyal companion and can meet Tally’s special needs, Tally may be your best buddy in waiting!
