Biscuit
Biscuit needs a cat-friendly dog to play with!
BISCUIT is a friendly, curious, high energy kitty. He walks into any situation and makes himself right at home. Like most young males, Biscuit is high energy and loves to play. He needs lots of toys and playtime with his human caretakers. Having a good amount of space to roam around and explore would be a big plus for this friendly boy.

Biscuit likes to greet anyone coming into his domain, even strangers. He flops down on the floor to expose his belly for a nice belly rub. Because he's an energetic young kitty, Biscuit needs a home without young children as he can get a little playfully aggressive if his energy isn't redirected appropriately. Once Biscuit is done playing, he jumps up on the couch next to you and falls asleep while you are relaxing or watching TV.

Biscuit came into SPCA's care after a kind woman brought him to her vet when she noticed an abscess on his forehead. She had been feeding him outdoors for a while. Biscuit's abscess has been surgically opened up, cleaned and drained and has completely healed. Not too surprising, Biscuit is FIV positive -- a result of his days roaming outdoors and interacting with other FIV positive cats.

We haven't seen Biscuit interact with dogs, but we think he would enjoy having a canine buddy to play and interact with. He doesn't like to be alone and needs interaction. Biscuit is a truly wonderful kitty who is expected to live a long life now that he is safely indoors.

Note: We waive adoption fees for FIV positive cats like Biscuit.

Billy
Billy has been dubbed a 'ladies man!'
BILLY is a very friendly, confident kitty. He is happy and mellow and loves hanging out with his human buddies. Billy especially likes cuddling and getting belly rubs. He adores meeting new people and rubs up against them because he knows this means he may get a belly rub!

Billy is a very well-behaved kitty. He responds right away to your voice and clearly likes to please his human buddies. Billy comes running when you call his name and he will love you even more if you give him fresh chicken!

This sweet boy came into our care after being found living among stray and feral cats on the grounds of a large hospital. He stood out from all the other kitties because he is SO FRIENDLY! With an upper respiratory infection and very dirty white coat, it was obvious Billy wasn't getting proper care. So a Good Samaritan scooped him up and carried him to her car and drove him to her vet for safe-keeping.

Now in our care, Billy received the treatment he needed. Even though Billy is FIV positive, he is otherwise healthy and expected to live a long, healthy life.

We don't know how Billy responds to other cats so it's best that he remain a single kitty. We think Billy might like to have a canine buddy to hang out with, and he will do fine with kids.

Note: We waive adoption fees for FIV positive cats like Billy.

Blitzen
This boy is lively!
BLITZEN is a handsome Christmas kitty with huge white whiskers and a white streak down his nose.

This boy is a young, playful male who definitely needs another rambunctious kitty to match his energy level. He is affectionate, purrs when you pet him, and likes to rub up against your legs.

We have not seen Blitzen interact with children but think he would do fine although he sometimes plays a little rough - one reason he needs a rough and tumble young male kitty to play with. Blitzen would most likely do fine with a cat-friendly dog because he's such an outgoing, confident kitty.

So if you are looking for a friendly, playful kitty, and can provide Blitzen with a like-minded feline companion, he would love to join your family!

Chipmunk
Chipmunk is a handsome tabby tuxedo!
CHIPMUNK is a very friendly boy who likes people and other like-minded kitties. He is moderately playful and likes to settle in for nice naps in a ray of sunshine streaming through a window.

Chipmunk does not like a lot of commotion so a forever home that is quiet to moderately active will keep this friendly boy happy.

Chipmunk came into our care from a local shelter along with another cat named Mouse (adopted!). Mouse and Chipmunk got along but weren't that bonded so we were happy when a forever home came long for Mouse. Now it's Chipmunk's turn to find that special home.

Cupid & Donner
These boys are fun and loving!
CUPID & DONNER are the last two of Ms. Kitty's 7 kittens! They are named after Santa's 7 reindeer. All 7 kittens are Bobtails -- with no tails other than a little stub. Interesting because their mom has a long tail. Guess their dad is a Bobtail!

CUPID, like his name, is the lover boy. He is friendly, with a nice purr motor, and seeks to be in the presence of his foster family most of the time. Cupid plays well with his brother, Donner, and the other resident kitties in his foster home.

DONNER is a very outgoing boy. He doesn't hesitate to checkout new toys, greet people and explore his surroundings. Donner has a definite air of confidence about himself with a strong desire to engage with the people he meets.

Both boys are well adjusted to small and large dogs, adult cats and older kids. They can be adopted together or separately into compatible homes with another like-minded feline. They came into SPCA's care along with their mom and siblings from a local shelter.

Delight
This girl LOVES to play, play and play!
DELIGHT (aka Lila or Lil Bit) is a VERY playful girl. She is very good at entertaining herself with toys, but also likes to play 'hide and seek' with you and play chase with the adult cat in her foster home. Delight is also fascinated with water; she likes to jump into the bathtub right after you shower and play with a dripping faucet.

Delight also likes being petted and purrs readily. She likes to burrow under blankets and sleep behind you on the couch. Delight will also nap in her foster mom's lap. She likes to rub against your legs when you are standing to let you know she wants attention. Delight also likes to sit next to the computer, and play with the mouse on the screen, when her foster mom is working her computer.

Delight needs a forever home with another playful kitty. We have not seen her interact with kids, but older kids would most likely be fine.

Delight came into our care with her mom from a local shelter.

Emmy & Grammy
These girls love each other and other friendly cats
EMMY & GRAMMY are sweet sisters who love each other as well as other friendly cats. They were rescued by SPCA as kittens and have been overlooked for adoption because they are shy toward people other than their foster family. These girls hang out and sleep together and would LOVE to find a quiet home to enjoy their lives together. Spending good weather days out on their 2nd story deck is one of their favorite things, often lying on their backs, sunbathing and loving life.

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.

Friskies & Blue Buffalo
These boys will love you and entertain you!
FRISKIES & BLUE BUFFALO are loving, playful brothers. They greet you at the door, run to you when called and like being picked up and cuddled. They are also VERY rambunctious -- chasing and pouncing on each other and entertaining themselves with toys. These boys are best buddies and need to be adopted together.

FRISKIES looks like he's dressed up for a party - with a grey tuxedo, a white shirt and a white tipped tail. He is shy at first with new people and in new surroundings, but once Friskies is comfortable he's playful and loving toward his caretakers. He will probably always be shy toward strangers but bonds very well with his caretakers. He plays with anything he can bat around with his paws - whether it's moving or not! Friskies is also a lovebug - he cries to be picked up and cuddled, plops himself down at your feet and rolls around to expose his belly for a nice belly rub, and adores getting hugs and kisses.

BLUE BUFFALO has beautiful blue-grey fur. He greets everyone with the same cute look on his face that says 'pet me, pet me.' But don't let his sweet demeanor fool you - when he's done getting some loving, Blue is ready to pounce on a toy or chase his brother until they tucker out. Blue is also a fearless explorer who is very curious and settles in right away with new people in a new home. When he's not in play mode, Blue loves to be cuddled and held.

These boys came into our care with four of their siblings (Sheba, Fancy Feast, Jelly Belly and Sweet Pea - all adopted!) from a litter of EIGHT kittens! They were rescued by a kind family who found them living under their porch (they kept two of the kittens for themselves!). Because of Friskies shyness, these boys need a quiet to moderately active home without young children or dogs now or in the future.

Gilbert & Napoleon
These boys are sweet, loving, low-key kitties!
GILBERT & NAPOLEON are very sweet boys who want nothing more than a loving home. They are sweet, affectionate and pretty low-key. These boys are not brothers, but have been together for about 7 years. They are very bonded and we wouldn't dream of separating them!

Both boys get along well with older kids, cats and cat-friendly dogs. They like to be petted and don't mind being picked up and carried around. They also love to roll over for belly rubs. When they are energetic, they love to play with toys and wrestle with and chase each other.

GILBERT has beautiful light green eyes and a plush coat of gray. He is very friendly, outgoing and talkative. Gilbert LOVES to sunbathe, sleep in cat beds, be picked up and get his ears rubbed. He is a talker and always answers when you talk to him. Gilbert also likes to chase his own tail! He comes when you call him and answers to the name 'Gilly.'

NAPOLEON has stunning different colored eyes - one is hazel (brownish-green) and the other is light green. He is very sweet and has a huge motor he turns on when you pet him. Napoleon is also a shy kitty who needs a little time to feel comfortable with new people; once he feels safe, Napoleon is very affectionate. He likes to sleep on the bed with his human caretaker and LOVES to be brushed and petted! Napoleon also likes to chase bouncy balls and answers when you call him 'Polie.'

Gilbert and Napoleon came into our care after their loving caretaker fell on hard times and had to move in with elderly grandparents who are highly allergic to cats. These boys need to be moved to a longer-term foster home if they aren't adopted first. So please let us know if you would like to potentially foster or adopt these loving kitties.

Gilley & Harley
These girls have long, beautiful, fluffy tails!
GILLEY & HARLEY are silky soft, gorgeous tuxedo sisters with long bushy black tails and seductive yellow eyes. They are shy when meeting new people and will take time to adapt to a new home. But once they do, they will be your constant companions!

The girls love playing - with you and each other - and sitting by the window watching the birds go by. Once they are comfortable in their surroundings, they race to the door to greet you! The minute you sit down, the girls climb onto the couch; one in your lap, one by your side. These girls are bonded and must be adopted together.

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 and has big paws! 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 need a quiet home and a patient caretaker who will give them time to settle in. A calm, cat-friendly dog and older children would be fine - as long as the home is generally quiet. 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 getting themselves all pretty for their forever home! To watch them in action, see their video.

Note: We waive adoption fees for special needs kitties like Gilley and Harley.

Gizmo
Gizmo NEEDS an active home with kids and dogs!
GIZMO is a sweet-tempered, loving cat. He is very friendly toward people and dogs and adapts easily to new environments. Gizmo is also VERY ACTIVE, likes to explore and jump to high places. So having a nice big kitty tree will do wonders for this friendly boy. Gizmo also loves to sit on laps and purrs easily when he's content.

Gizmo MUST have an ACTIVE home. He needs interaction with people and playful dogs. A home with a family with several kids would be great. He also needs room to roam around - a small apartment would be too confining for this active boy.

Gizmo was abandoned on the streets to fend for himself when his family was evicted from their home. He was found near a homeless shelter, and was being fed when extra food was available. However, after being threatened by someone in the neighborhood, it was clear that Gizmo needed to get off the streets. Luckily, a kind person brought Gizmo to her vet then reached out to SPCA for help.

Henry & Tommy
These boys are ready for a home of their own!
HENRY & TOMMY are very sweet, affectionate brothers who adore each other's company. They love being petted and purr easily. They are also pretty low-key, especially for young males. These boys enjoy running after the laser and sitting on the windowsill watching squirrels play outside. Once they settle down, they love to cuddle with you on the bed at night.

HENRY is very playful and enjoys everyone's company. He loves to walk over his foster mom's lap and laptop when he wants attention! Henry loves sitting at the top of the stairs waiting for his foster mom to come home and play! Henry has the softest and fluffiest fur and purrs loudly when stretched out for a belly rub. Henry is now on a special prescription diet for crystals in his urine and is doing well. He must stay on this diet indefinitely.

TOMMY 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 Tommy is bigger than Henry, he is more low-key and likes to groom his brother while they lounge on the couch. Tommy is not eating his brother's prescription diet and is fed separately.

These boys were rescued along with their sister as from outdoors by a kind young woman. Henry and Tommy need a relatively quiet home to moderately active home together.

Jerimiah
This SWEET boy has big paws with extra toes!
JERIMIAH is a playful kitty who loves interactive playtime. If you want to get his attention, just bring out a toy! He loves chasing a ribbon wand and amuses himself by batting around little balls.

Jerimiah is also very affectionate and loves being petted. His silky-smooth coat is perfect for petting! He greets his foster mom, and even guests, at the door and likes to follow her around. He rubs against her legs, meows when he wants attention and has become quite a lap cat.

Jerimiah is a polydactyl with extra toes/claws on all four paws. He is very good about letting his foster mom clip his claws which is important for polydactyl cats. He does not do well with young children so Jerry needs a home either with adults or an older child or two that are calm. He is happy as an only cat and doesn't like seeing other cats outside so we think he will do best as a single kitty.

This sweet boy came into our care after a kind woman found him crying in her neighborhood for help. He was underweight so it looks like he had been lost or abandoned outdoors. Now safely in our care and thriving, Jerimiah needs a home that will give him love and a home to call his own.

Jillyboo & Jujubee
These tabby girls are sweet!
JILLYBOO & JUJUBEE are adorable sisters who got their names from the Skippyjon Jones children's books about a Siamese cat with big ears. They are bonded and must be adopted together.

Jillyboo (nicknamed Jelly Bean) and Jujubee are sweet girls who love to play together and are often captivated by something as simple as a string. They are also tail chasing champions! They love to snuggle in bed with their foster parents at night, and JillyBoo likes to knead you into submission prior to settling in.

Jillyboo and Jujubee are well adjusted to the cat-friendly dog in their home. They are gentle enough to be companions for an older cat, and they have done well with older children in their foster home.

These girls were found outside as tiny kittens and brought to a local vet office for safekeeping before coming into SPCA's care. They may need a little time and patience when settling into a new home. Once they settle in, their forever family will be rewarded with adorable, affectionate kitties.

Kit Kat
KitKat is perfect for a family with kids!
KITKAT is a sweet young female cat. She is very friendly and affectionate. KitKat also loves playing with toys and is good at keeping herself occupied, although she also responds to interactive play with her foster family.

KitKat does great with a family with kids, although children over about 6 years of age would be best. She is very social with her foster family and enjoys sleeping with two of the girls in the home who are 6 and 11 years old.

We have not seen KitKat interact with other cats and think she is happy being a single kitty.

KitKat came into our care after she was found outdoors with a litter of five newborn kittens. Poor momma was struggling to survive and care for her babies - she was very thin and had a wound on her hip that was mostly healed by the time she came into our care. Now a healthy girl, KitKat is ready for a forever home of her own.

Layla & Raven
These girls are true beauties!
LAYLA & RAVEN are two gorgeous sisters who will dazzle you with their sweetness and their antics. These girls are affectionate kitties who have bonded very well with their foster mom. They are shy toward new people and new surroundings, but are transformed into sweet, loving, and playful kitties once they are comfortable.

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 is also a cuddler who likes to sit next to her foster mom on the couch or curl up with her in bed at night.

As much as they love to chase feathers on a stick or toy mice on a wire, their newly discovered favorite toys are nothing more than purple pipe cleaners which provide them with hours of entertainment!

Layla and Raven need a quiet home without children now or in the future. They have adapted to the sweet Lab in their foster home so a home with a gentle dog would be fine. They will take a little while to settle into a new home, but once they do they will bond well with their caretaker. If you have a quiet home and know how to give shy kitties time to settle in, these girls will reward you with a lifetime of love and affection.

Lovebug
This playful girl is looking for an active home!
LOVEBUG is a friendly, energetic and playful kitty who likes to be 'in the middle of everything.' She loves to be around people and needs plenty of interactive play. She also plays with toys on her own - especially with a little ball she carries and bats around the house.

Lovebug needs a home where her human companions are around a fair amount and have time for plenty of interactive play. Lovebug is very attached to her foster dad who is her 'play buddy.' She meows sadly when he leaves for work in the morning. She likes a little bit of petting behind her ears and under her chin, but gets over-stimulated with too much petting on her body. She likes to curl up next to her foster parents for a long nap, and sometimes sits in her foster dad's lap. She also greets them at the door when they come home from work, and sleeps quietly at the foot of their bed at night.

Lovebug likes to hang around when guests visit her foster home. Her foster mom says Lovebug finds people fascinating and enjoys sitting and watching people interact. Lovebug also loves to watch the birds and squirrels outside through a window, or when sitting on a screened in porch. Her foster parents are teaching her to go on short walks with a harness and leash - but keep in mind that Lovebug wants to take the lead!

Lovebug is the princess of her domain and needs a home without young children, other cats or dogs. She can be a little temperamental so it's important that her forever home is able to meet her needs. Once settled into the right home, Lovebug is a truly wonderful companion.

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.

Lyra
Lyra will keep you entertained!
LYRA has a huge personality for such a small girl. She is very curious and loves to explore. Lyra puts her toys to good use and plays lively games with her circular ball track and loves to run back and forth through her kitten tunnels. Lyra even likes to play in the tub with trickling water - she thinks slipping and sliding is great fun!

Lyra gets along well with the other cats in her foster home and is very fond of kids as well. She loves to tell you what is on her mind and can be very talkative! When she tires out, Lyra often seeks a lap to curl up in and loves to climb into bed and snuggle at night with her foster mom.

Lyra came into our care with her mom, Missy, and two siblings, Carina and Orion (adopted!), when she was a tiny baby. Missy was a stray kitty left behind when her family moved away. A kind neighbor brought this little family inside their home for safekeeping until SPCA took them into our care.

MIDNIGHT & TUX are friendly, affectionate kitties who thrive in a household with lots of human interaction. They are bonded brothers and need to be adopted as a pair.

MIDNIGHT is a handsome, very affectionate kitten whose black fur glistens in the sunlight. He enjoys exploring, playing ball, and running around with soft toys in his mouth. Midnight loves sleeping in a sunny spot or curled up on top of a kitty condo. He frequently comes over, flops down and stretches out purring next to his foster mom so that he can get his belly rubbed.

TUX is a very friendly, handsome, athletic kitty with a nice purr. He enjoys playing in boxes, climbing up his scratching post, romping around, wrestling and chasing balls. Tux also loves sleeping perched up high. He sometimes meows at his foster mom to be petted, picked up and held over her shoulder.

You couldn't ask for sweeter, more affectionate and wonderful kitties than these boys!

MISSY is a sweet, gentle, laid-back girl. A definite a lap cat, she loves nothing more than to be petted and scratched behind her ears. Missy is low-key and prefers to be an only cat. A nice spot in the sun for the day is the perfect spot for Missy.

These sweet kitty came into our care with three tiny babies - Lyra, Orion and Carina. Her kittens have been weaned and are also ready for adoption. Missy was a stray kitty who had been left behind when her family moved away. Thanks to her kind neighbors, Missy was rescued with her babies soon after she gave birth.

Now that Missy is doing having kittens and being a mom, she is looking for a home of her own! If you are looking for a sweet, loyal companion, Missy may be the kitty for you!

Murray & Shadow
These boys will love you and entertain you!
MURRAY & SHADOW are two friendly, playful kitties who are ready for a home of their own! They have different but complementary personalities who make a great pair.

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!

Petunia
This girl is friendly and likes to be 'in charge!'
PETUNIA is a sociable, kitty who enjoys playing with little furry mice, bird-watching and snuggling with her foster mom. She is happiest in a warm sunny spot or hiding her favorite toys for future fun.

Petunia likes feline companionship but she's particular about who she hangs out with! She can be an only cat in her forever home. Or, she would enjoy having a younger 'teenage' female kitty introduced after she settles in. The younger kitty will need to accept her at 'top cat.' Petunia prefers the company of adults or older children because young children startle her.

Petunia is a wonderful kitty - she just likes to have things her way!

Pockets
This sweet boy just wants to be loved!
POCKETS is a very sweet, 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 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 think Pockets would most likely do well with a like-minded kitty. Pockets gets lonely when his human companions are away from home so having a feline buddy who likes other cats would be good 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.

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

Qian (pronounced che-in)
Qian is a cuddle-bug!
QIAN is a friendly, active and cuddly kitty. She settles easily into a new home and adores anyone who will give her attention. Qian loves to curl up in your lap and sleep on your bed at night. She wastes no time exploring new places and loves playing with toys. This girl has an amazing amount of energy -- she loves batting toys around and racing around her foster home. She is great at entertaining herself!

Qian was rescued from outdoors by a kind family who had been feeding her for quite some time. It is hard to believe this wonderful kitty was living on the streets! Shortly after coming into our care we discovered Qian is hyperthyroid which is regulated with medication called Tapazole.

Qian is looking for a home of her own with someone who will continue caring for her hyperthyroidism. She needs to be the only kitty in the home but may do fine with a cat-friendly dog. Older kids would be fine as well.

If you would like to learn more about Qian and help us care for her, please consider being her Guardian Angel.

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

Guardian Angels Needed!
 
Rebecca (aka Reina)
Rebecca is a gorgeous Persian silver tabby!
REBECCA (aka Reina) is a beautiful purebred Persian (possibly a Chinchilla Persian). She had a wonderful life as the 'princess of her domain' until her guardian passed away. We can only imagine how unsettling it must have been for this senior kitty to lose her guardian and her home.

Rebecca has nonetheless adjusted very well to her foster home. She is confident and comfortable and interacts well with her foster parents and visitors to their home. Although Rebecca has adjusted to the resident cat-friendly dog, she would prefer to have her foster parents all to herself! Rebecca loves to sit in her caretakers' laps as long as the resident dog isn't too close by.

Rebecca is quiet, likes to play, and has no limitations running up and down stairs. She is not a jumper though and prefers to remain at ground level. Rebecca appears to be a very healthy senior kitty with a slight heart murmur; she does not take any medications. She is a very picky eater, but her foster mom has lots of tips on what she likes and how to get her to eat well. Her foster mom says Rebecca is very 'regal' and has nicknamed her Reina (which means 'queen' in Spanish).

Rebecca needs an experienced cat caretaker who knows how to care for a senior kitty and Persians whose long, fine fur needs regular grooming. She is lucky to not have any eye tearing issues like a lot of Persians do.

Before coming into our care from a local shelter, Rebecca had always lived as a single pet. We think she would be happiest as the only pet, however, she may adjust fine to another laid-back kitty or well-behaved dog. Rebecca needs a pampered life-style where her human caretakers will continue to dote on her. In return, Rebecca will sit in your lap and provide you with lots of love and companionship.

Romeo
Will you be my VALENTINE!?!
ROMEO is an exceptionally loving little boy. His over-the-top affection for humans makes him a wonderful addition for any kind of home where the humans want a kitty at their side.

Romeo has a loud purr motor which activates as soon as you pick him up. He also kneads with his paws to emphasize his appreciation for your affection. Romeo has a medium-level of energy, does well with other cats and cat-friendly dogs, and is great with children, too.

Romeo may be adopted along with a compatible SPCA kitty or into a home that has a feline buddy for him to bond and play with. Romeo came into SPCA's care from a local monastery that feeds stray and feral cats.

Ruby Tuesday
URGENT - Ruby's foster mom is leaving for Florida so Ruby needs a new foster home!
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!

Socks & Silver
These kitties love to window watch!
SOCKS & SILVER are sweet, gentle kitties who are good buddies. They will be a tad bit shy with new people in a new home. But once they settle in, they will reward their human caretakers with lots of affection. They need to be adopted as a pair.

SOCKS is an avid window watcher and quite an adventurer once she settles into a new home. She has a nice purr motor and a sweet disposition.

SILVER loves to be petted and arches his back and purrs with a trusting look in his eyes. He is also a lap kitty. Silver likes to chase jingle balls and feather wands.

These kitties need a quiet home and do fine with older quiet kids, other cats and a laid-back cat-friendly dog. Their forever home needs to be relatively quiet though without too much commotion.

Socks and Silver were sadly abandoned outdoors. They literally appeared one day in someone's front yard - meowing to come inside their home. They were friendly and already spayed/neutered so they obviously belonged to someone! They are so lucky a nice family provided them with a safe haven until they moved into SPCA's care.

Starbucks
This boy is the talk of the town!
STARBUCKS is a handsome and uniquely colored kitty -- milk chocolate! who likes to talk, especially around dinner time. He may be a little shy with strangers at first, but warms up quickly once he realizes human attention is coming his way. In a comfortable setting, Starbucks is a very affectionate kitty who often snuggles and rubs against his foster mom. He even likes to rub against one of the dogs in his foster home, too!

Starbucks spends his time during the day napping in the office while his foster mom works. He enjoys the antics of the other foster bobtail kitty boys, Blitzen and Cupid, in his home. Starbucks even takes a special liking to keeping them well groomed! Starbucks is very playful, gets along with other cats, dogs and children, and would be a wonderful addition to any loving home.

Starbucks must stay on prescription urinary tract canned food. He has been successfully treated for crystals in his urine and the food, along with drinking lots of water, helps maintain his health.

Tim
Tim is a fluffy boy with huge whiskers!
TIM is a handsome young kitty who LOVES people! He greets you with a nice purr motor, and rubs against your legs to show how much he appreciates attention. When Tim is in the right mood, he loves to cuddle and be held like a baby. He will let you know with a little nip if he has had enough handling so watching his cues is important.

Tim is moderately playful and likes to chase crinkle balls and corks. He is also often laid-back and enjoys bird watching and sunbathing in a stream of sunlight through the window.

Tim can be adopted as an only kitty, but would also be happy with another laid-back feline companion. Tim's foster home includes another laid-back male kitty and they became friends right away. Tim is terrified of dogs, so a forever home where a dog will never be in the future is required. In his mind, CATS RULE!

This wonderful kitty came into our care from a local shelter.

Vivian
This beautiful torti-girl would love to meet you!
VIVIAN is a sweet girl who is looking for a home of her own.

Vivian means "alive, animated and spirited" and that is what this beautiful torti cat is like. She loves people and will be a great family cat. She does ok with older children, but is not fond of dogs.

Vivian was rescued recently from the Holy Cross Abby in Berryville, VA. The monks at the Abby were taking care of this sweet stray kitty but due to building renovations, she can no longer live there.

We are posting Vivian to help Hoof & Paw Veterinary Service in Purcellville, VA find her a home. If you would like to meet Vivian, please contact Hoof & Paw directly at 540-338-5888.
