How to Meet Our Cats
Things to note:
Many adult cats and the vast majority of kittens need feline company
--Every description specifies if feline company is needed
--Dogs and people aren't substitutes for cat companionship
--Most kittens are adopted in pairs (unless you already have compatible cat at home). Why most kittens need feline companionship.
Residency: We adopt ONLY to residents of Washington DC area (N.VA, MD, DC).

Apollo will do well in just about any home, with our without kids. He has not been exposed to dogs, but would probably be fine with a cat-friendly, calm dog.
Despite being so sweet, April has not had very good luck in finding a forever home. Her caretaker developed health issues and returned April to our care. Sadly, April is overweight, and while she is otherwise healthy, she could develop health issues down the road unless we help her slim down to a healthy weight. April has made amazing progress, but still has a ways to go.
Even though April is overweight, she is actually playful - in her own way! She loves playing with 'the bird' toy - always watching it with interest, often swatting at it, and sometimes jumping around after it. April loves to be brushed and is quite affectionate, with a noisy purr. She gets a dose of daily exercise going up and down the stairs, and jumps on the bed to greet her foster mom. April is on a strict over-the-counter wet food only diet that's high in protein and low in carbohydrates.
April needs a quiet home where she can settle in and feel comfortable. A home with an older person or couple would be ideal. Or a quiet famiy with one older child would be fine too. Ideally, her forever home will have stairs to give her a chance to exercise and continue to lose weight.
We don't know how April would do with another cat. She may do ok with a sweet, independent kitty who would like another cat to co-exist with. Her current foster home has an older, low-key dog and she is fine with the dog.
April was initially rescued by SPCA and adopted out as a kitten with her sister.
|Billy, Tabitha & Wendy|
BILLY (orange/white tabby) is the only boy in the litter and acts like the little brother. He loves to come up behind his sisters and jump on them and play. Billy is quite handsome and full of energy. He loves having his belly rubbed. Billy adores his toys, and plays with them constantly.
TABITHA (calico) is very sweet and a tad bit timid. She will need a little time to adapt to a new home and new people, but with a little time and gentleness Tabitha warms up to you. This sweet girl is actually a snuggle bunny - just give her time and patience.
WENDY (tortoiseshell) is a beautiful tortoiseshell with a great disposition. She is very sweet and has a mild temperament. Wendy loves being petted around her ears and under her chin. She absolutely loves mealtime and comes running when she hears you open the can of wet food.
These kittens, along with their sister (Matilda - adopted), were born in our care after their mom, Lady Luck, found her way into our care about to deliver kittens!
|Blaze, Dos & Tess|
These adorable siblings are playful, affectionate and love people. They are curious and at ease exploring new rooms in their foster home and meeting new people. They have easy-going temperaments and medium energy levels when playing. They are also lap kittens if their foster parents are sitting down and they are done playing - they love to sleep in a pile on their foster parents.
BLAZE is almost identical to his brother, Dos, except he has a cute white blaze on his forehead. Blaze is super affectionate and is very vocal when he wants to get your attention or wants his wet food! Food is very important to this sweet boy. He makes a great pair with his brother, Dos - they need to be adopted as a pair.
DOS (meaning number two in Spanish) is also very friendly and affectionate like his brother, Blaze. But he is a little more of a 'player.' Always 'on the go!' And Dos is a bit more independent - he will charge off exploring his foster home on his own. He also likes to chirp and is a bit of a tomboy - brazen! Dos needs to be adopted with his partner-in-crime, Blaze.
TESS is the only girl in this litter. She has incredibly soft fur. She is also super affectionate and wants to be really close to you - nuzzling with you to be petted. Tess doesn't like to be alone and cries for her brothers or foster parents if she finds herself alone. She absolutely needs a sweet, loving female kitty companion in her forever home. Tess also has an adorable, tiny mew. She can entertain herself with a little pompom and is a bit more cautious than her brothers but she likes to climb on your shoulders!
These kittens haven't been exposed to kids. They would do fine in adult-only homes or homes with older kids. They are still learning to not 'playfully' bite your hands - so, if there are kids in their forever homes, they need to be old enough to understand how to redirect this type of behavior.
These kittens came into our care after their foster parents - long time SPCA volunteers - found them living under their shed. These kittens have no idea how lucky they are they were spotted outside before it got too cold outside!
|Charlie & Chester|
CHARLIE loves to play! She is very adventurous, and doesn't have the word can't (or shouldn't!) in her vocabulary. Charlie has become a very sweet kitty as her personality has evolved. She, like Chester, loves to be with her family at all times and follows everyone around the house.
CHESTER is a sweet boy who has really come out of his shell. He was shy initially in his foster home but now sleeps beside his human friends on the couch, and has the loudest purr you have ever heard. Chester loves to stare out the window and watch the world go by. He is a huge lover and always wants to be where people are.
These kitties do great with adult cats and kittens, dogs and older children. They rub up against their big feline foster brother, Ozzy, and love to stalk his tail. They also love to rub up against the big cat-friendly dog in their foster home - they truly love all animals and enjoy their company. Charlie and Chester are very comfortable with older children, but younger ones who can get a little loud sometimes startle them.
Chester and Charlie have started to mellow out as they are now teenagers, but still have some of their kitten energy. They are sweet, love to be petted and picked up and both enjoy sleeping with their human family. They can be a little shy with strangers, but have become much more receptive to visitors. So a quiet to moderately active home, that won't change a lot over time, will give them the security they need to be happy kitties.
These wonderful kitties came into our care, along with their siblings Georgie, Frankie & Teddy (posted separately), after being rescued as tiny babies outdoors.
|Charlie, Linus, Schroeder, Franklin, Jack & Frost|
These boys are playful, moderately active, purr monsters who greet you at the door and give you kitty kisses. They are very content sleeping on one of the foster family's bed at night (with 6, it gets a little crowded!), playing with the family's Goldendoodle, window watching birds and squirrels outside, and playing with any toy they find. There aren't any obvious bonded pairs - they all get along very well with each other. So they can be adopted in pairs or into homes with another compatible feline already in the home.
All six boys are well socialized with kids, dogs and other cats. They are so similar in looks and personality that their foster mom couldn't give specifics about any boy in particular. Anyone interested in them will just need to come visit and see which kitty picks them!
These boys came into SPCA's care when they were 5 weeks of age from a local store owner who found the family in a storage shed that was filled with hay.
|Claudius & Nero|
CLAUDIUS is a little love bug who hops in your lap as soon as you sit down! If an affectionate cat is what you're seeking, Claudius is your man. With his black body and white spot on his chest, he looks like a perfect little gentleman. Claudius is always ready to play or cuddle.
NERO loves to play, play, play! Whether it's a toy or a passing moth, Nero is ready to pounce. His antics are loads of fun to watch, and when he wears himself out he curls up on your lap for a snooze. His favorite playmate is Claudius.
These teenagers came into our care after being rescued outdoors as tiny kittens. Their siblings, Grace and Julius, have been adopted.
|Coco & Maize|
COCO & MAIZE are sweet, playful young adults who share the same foster home. They have different personalities, but have become good buddies and need to be adopted together.
These girls are typical young kitties who love to play! They like to chase each other and pounce on anything that moves. They are huge fans of cat toys, balls, feathers and hair bands. They also enjoy looking out the window watching the birds.
COCO is such a sweet girl. She is all black with just a touch of white fur on her chest with beautiful yellow eyes and shiny black fur. Coco enjoys being held and cuddled. She's known for jumping up on your lap and falling asleep, especially when you're working on the computer! Coco loves attention and is pretty laid back. She is an absolute sweetheart!
MAIZE is a beautiful tuxedo kitty. She is super playful and extremely curious. She comes when called and loves her kitty treats! Maize is full of personality and loves to be around people. She loves to jump in your lap and snuggle. When she's not napping in a basket, she's known to follow you around the house or to initiate play time with her friend Coco.
Coco and Maize will do great in a home with or without older kids and both do fine with the dog in their foster home. These girls came into our care separately from a local shelter.
Cutie is also very playful, especially with strings, a flashlight or anything that he can paw at or sometimes chase. He has a loud purr that he turns on when being petted. Cutie is curious and likes to look out the window and enjoys being out on a screened in porch watching the birds, cars or anything that grabs his attention. Cutie is also a quiet kitty, but meows when he wants something. He likes to be petted and LOVES being brushed. All you need to do is hold up the brush and he'll run to you for brushing.
This sweet boy needs a home where he will get plenty of love, affection and playtime with his human buddies. He would love to have a home with a couple where one of his caretakers works from home at least part of the time. A single person home who works outside the home won't be able to give Cutie the people-time he needs. He's a very social kitty.
He will also do fine as a single kitty - again, as long as his humans are around the house a fair amount. But he may also do ok with another sweet, laid-back to moderately playful kitty who wants a companion. Cutie's home needs to be quiet to moderately active. An older child or two would be fine but no young children now or in the future.
Cutie was rescued by SPCA as a young kitten from outdoors. He was adopted out as a kitten with his brother and has lived in a wonderful home his whole life. Unfortunately, his brother became increasingly aggressive toward Cutie, making it clear he wanted to be an only kitty. So, sadly, Cutie's adopter has asked us to find Cutie a new home so he can live in peace.
Daisy gets along with other cats and even dogs! Her foster home currently has an adult cat and two SPCA teenage kitties (Charlie and Chester). There is a large cat-friendly dog and two children in the home so she has been exposed to everything! Daisy is a very independent girl, she enjoys pouncing on her foster brother Chester when he least expects it, wrestles with him and then runs off to do it again later!
Daisy enjoys being part of the kitty pack, but when it comes to down time she likes to be on her own. She eats with her furry family and plays, but doesn't snuggle with them. She follows her foster human family around to see what they've doing and likes to hop in the shower after you're done.
Daisy doesn't mind being picked up or carried around but she's not a lap kitten - she's too busy playing and exploring. She's her own 'kitty' and likes it that way. She's fun to watch and makes everyone smile and laugh...over and over again!
Daisy is truly lucky to be alive. She was found - literally - in the middle of Route 66 when she was a tiny kitten weighing only one pound. A kind person managed to stop and scoop Daisy up, frozen in fear, from the middle of the road. We don't know how she got there - maybe she had crawled up inside someone's car and fell out? Or somehow her mom cat had her hidden nearby and she wandered onto the busy road?
|Dublin & Yahtzee|
DUBLIN is an active boy who constantly checks things out to see if anyone wants to wrestle or play chase with him. He gets along well with the other adult cats in his foster home, and loves to snuggle with the Golden Retriever. He isn't too keen on being held or cuddled, except when he has tired himself out and is ready for nap time. Then he looks for his foster mom's lap and a snuggly blanket to knead.
YAHTZEE is a fun-loving, attention-seeking boy with a white 'C' on his back. He loves to play cars and marbles with the foster family's young children. He also likes to fall asleep cuddled in your arms, if you are willing to hold him for that length of time.
These boys need an active home. They do great with kids of all ages and do fine with cat-friendly dogs. They came into our care from a local shelter.
Fluffy is a sweet boy who is both bold and timid. Once he feels secure in his surroundings, Fluffy races around with confidence. He feels a little trapped indoors and loves, loves, loves spending time on the screened-in porch in his foster home. The loud noises outside don't scare him one bit. He's at home with the sounds of the great outdoors. Fluffy is also bold when it comes to other cats - he runs right up to them to touch noses if he thinks they will be friendly.
Fluffy is very bonded with his foster mom, but timid toward other people. His foster mom can pick him up and carry him around like a rag doll. He likes to be petted and brushed when he's in the mood, but he can also be a little nippy when he gets over stimulated, or is not in the mood for being handled. It will take time for Fluffy to adapt to new people.
Fluffy needs a quiet home with a patient, experienced cat caretaker whose home is not expected to change much over time. He also needs a home with a playful cat who likes to be chased when playing and who won't be intimidated by Fluffy's lack of 'kitty etiquette.' Fluffy wants to play with other cats but isn't sure how to play.
Fluffy clearly had a home at some point. He craves human affection but he's also timid. Having lived outdoors for at least a year, we can only imagine what he lived through. Because his right front leg had severely torn tendons, his leg had to be amputated after he was rescued. Most cats do great on three legs - they just need a little time to get their bearings and not feel vulnerable. Fluffy is no exception - he races around, runs up and down carpeted stairs, and jumps up and down couches and beds with ease. He also has no problem jumping in and out of his high side litter box and buries his waste with gusto. Because Fluffy was severely matted when rescued, his long fluffy fur was shaved - except for his puffy tail. After several months, his fur is growing back nicely and he will get even fluffier over time with a huge white mane.
Fluffy had been living outdoors for at least a year hobbling around on three legs. A kind woman spent months trying to coax him closer and when Fluffy finally learned to trust her, it was clear that he was a sweet, but timid, social cat - not a feral cat. If you have a big heart AND the right home environment (quiet with a friendly cat and hopefully a screened in porch!), please consider adopting Fluffy. He will reward you with lots of purring and lots of love.
|Frankie & Teddy|
FRANKIE (brown/orange tortoiseshell/calico, female) has beautiful multi-colored markings with bright orange and solid black front paws. She loves snuggling between her sisters in the kitty hammock and on the couch. Frankie waits to see what toys her sisters go for during playtime, and then jumps into action and joins the fun. Frankie is a little more sensitive and shy than her sisters, but is very loving and affectionate once she is settled and comfortable with her surroundings.
TEDDY (brown/white/orange tabby/calico, female) is the protector. She watches over and takes care of her sisters, especially Frankie. Teddy lovingly grooms her sisters after a meal or when they're getting ready for a nap in the kitty hammock. She also loves to give kisses to her foster mother.
Frankie and Teddy need a quiet home environment with no other pets. They would do great with adults, or an older child in a quieter home would be fine, too. No babies or young kids down the road since they haven't been exposed to kids.
These kittens were rescued from outdoors as tiny babies, along with their siblings, Georgie, Charlie and Chester (posted separately).
|Fritz & Johann|
FRITZ (grey/white) is the boldest of the litter. He is active and confident - usually the first one to charge ahead to explore. Fritz is also a sweetheart though when he's not playing and exploring. He loves to curl up in your lap or lay anywhere on your body while taking a nice nap.
JOHANN (grey/white tuxedo) is pretty bold as well but a tad bit more cautious than his brother, Fritz. Once Johann sees his brother having fun though - exploring the world around him - Johann jumps in to join the fun. Like his brother, Johann is a sweetheart. He loves laying on top of you or in your lap when he's tuckered out after a busy morning of playing.
Fritz & Johann came into our care, along with JellyBelly and JellyBean, from a loving home that had too many other kitties to care for. If you are looking to add lively boys to your home, these kitties might be perfect for you!
|Georgie & Tahiti|
GEORGIE is a very sweet girl who meows and purrs loudly when she sees you, asking to be picked up and cuddled. She is moderately active, enjoying a good balance between playtime and nap time. Georgie loves to cuddle on soft blankets, kneading and nuzzling until she finds the right position to settle in for a snooze. She also likes to cuddle up to you at night. Georgie is timid with new people and in new surroundings at first, but acclimates to changes in a few days. We think Georgie will always be a little timid around strangers and loud noises.
TAHITI has a sweet, bold personality. She is not afraid to run up to new people and other cats and adjusts right away to new surroundings. Tahiti loves to explore, bat and carry toys around and watch the birds and squirrels outside. She is also very affectionate - Tahiti loves to cuddle up next to you, making biscuits in your lap and giving you kitty kisses. She is very people-oriented and needs to have a lot of people interaction.
While these girls have different personalities, they are very compatible. After just a few days of hissing, the girls have become best buddies. They play and sleep together, sometimes grooming each other.
They need a home where they will get plenty of attention from their caretakers. It's important that Georgie continue her socialization with people, so a home with at least two people will be best for her so she doesn't get too bonded with just one person. And because Tahiti is so people-oriented, she needs to have more than one person to play and interact with. Because Georgie is a little shy, she needs a home with just adults, or a quiet family with just one or two older kids would be fine. A young person or couple who plans to have kids down the road would not be right for Georgie.
Georgie and Tahiti were both rescued outdoors separately with their siblings when they were young kittens.
|Georgie - Adoption Pending!|
Tired from a long day at work? Want a cat who lays on the couch next to you while you watch a good movie? Georgie may be the cat for you! He waits at the door when he hears your keys, and loves to snuggle when you relax to watch TV. And, the best part: Georgie has the cutest 'chirp' that sounds just like a little kitten that he uses when he wants your attention (or food!).
Georgie loves following his human companions around and likes to rub against your legs for affection. When you give him a good scratching around his neck and backside, he turns into an absolute purring machine. His favorite time of the day is feeding time. When he hears the canned food opening up, he jogs over to you chirping and rubbing against your legs.
Georgie is so mellow and trustworthy that you can clip all of his claws at once with zero hassle. But don't let this fool you - he has plenty of energy when you bring out his favorite feathered wand toy. He chases, pounces on and tackles the feather until you put it away!
Georgie thrives on human affection. He needs a home with a couple or family with kids to keep him company. Having someone home part of the work day would be a big plus for this boy. Because of his calm demeanor, Georgie needs a home that is quiet to moderately active. We haven't seen him interact with another cat yet but think he would do great with another like-minded, low-key feline buddy.
Georgie came into our care from a local shelter.
|Ginny & Raymond|
GINNY is a sweet girl with an independent streak. She is a smart girl who is watchful and likes to take in her environment. Ginny is also a quiet girl who doesn't talk much. She is happy to have her toys and a nice place to nap. She is adorable when she chases her toys and then carries them around in her mouth. She is very proud of her hunting skills!
RAYMOND is the perfect mix of playful curiosity and love. This guy needs a little guidance and looks to his sister for the action plan and then when he sees she's turned in for a nap, he cuddles right up to her. Ray loves attention. When he's done playing, he seeks out his person for a lap to settle in for some love. If this guy sees another kitten getting attention, look out, he's coming in too. When you hold him like a baby, he gently pats your face with his paws. Very sweet!
These kittens are in a foster home with a child who has been very involved in their care - they are great with her. So they would do fine in a home with kids who know how to handle kittens. They have also been exposed to an adult cat in their foster home and are fine with her. They haven't had direct interaction with the two dogs in their foster home, but they are curious and not afraid. So they may do ok with cat-friendly dogs.
These kittens were born in our care after their mom who showed up in someone's yard asking to be rescued!
Gracie loves to visit her foster family throughout the day. At night, she likes to take quick naps at the foot of your bed. She's extremely curious and loves being the center of attention. If she thinks that you aren't paying enough attention to her, Gracie collapses dramatically next to you and meows, waiting to be petted. Gracie is a very talkative girl who enjoys having 'conversations' with you.
Gracie needs to be the only pet in the home - no other cats or dogs. She also needs a quiet home with adults only or a home with an older child would be fine too. A young person or couple whose lives will change over time and who may have kids down the road won't be the right home for Gracie. She needs a home that won't change much over time. With the right home and a patient caretaker, Gracie will make a loving addition to your family.
Gretchen can be adopted as a single kitty in her forever home, or adopted into a home with another compatible kitty. Cat-friendly dogs in the home are fine, too.
Gretchen came into the SPCA's care from a local shelter when she was very pregnant. She gave birth to 4 adorable kittens (Cider, Eggnog, Latte & Mocha = posted separately) shortly after settling into her foster home. She has been an absolute dream mommy kitty. Now that her kittens are ready for adoption, she is ready to start a new life, too.
|Ivory - Adoption Pending!|
Ivory is an amazing cat. He settles easily into a new home. He is very trusting and affectionate. Ivory likes to sit by your side as you watch TV or read. And, if you will let him, he will gladly climb into your lap. At night, Ivory likes to snuggle by your side. When he's not cuddling, Ivory has a playful side. He loves batting toys around and easily keeps himself entertained.
Ivory is looking for a loving home where humans are around to keep him company. While we have not seen him interact with dogs, he would probably do fine with a calm, cat-friendly dog. He would do great with older kids in a quiet to moderately active home. Ivory, however, needs to be the only kitty because he has tested positive for feline leukemia (FELV) (unless the other cat is FELV positive as well). Ivory is currently showing no signs of this disease.
Ivory came into our care after a kind woman had spotted him outdoors looking dirty and hungry. After a couple of weeks of feeding him outdoors, it was clear that he was either lost or abandoned. So she just opened her door and he walked inside and made himself at home. Now in our care, this sweet boy needs a loving forever home.
Note: SPCA waives adoption fees for special needs cats like Ivory. SPCA will also cover all of his future vet care provided by a vet we work with in Annandale, VA.
Jasmine loves to hang out with people and snuggle with her foster mom at night. She will even be the life of the party when you have guests over. Jasmine is also a curious kitty who loves to play and explore. Just wave a feather toy and watch her hunting instincts emerge. Jasmine also loves chasing the laser pointer so make sure you have one handy to engage her in play. And if that's not enough personality for you - Jasmine is also a talker! She loves to tell you how her day has been and answers when you talk to her.
We aren't sure if Jasmine needs a feline buddy although having the right playful kitty would probably be a plus for her. She had a brief interaction with the resident cats in her initial foster home when she had her tiny babies with her. Jasmine was amazingly ok with the other cats which is very unusual - moms with kittens are usually very protective of their babies. So we think Jasmine would do fine with another friendly kitty and that she would actually thrive having another kitty to play with. If Jasmine is the only kitty in her forever home, she needs plenty of interaction with people and activity around her. Having a home with room to roam around would also be a big plus for this playful girl.
Jasmine came into our care after being brought to a vet office we work with. We think she was found outdoors with her kittens (3 weeks old at the time - Beau, Leo & Mercury - all adopted!). She was underweight at only 6 1/2 pounds, but otherwise in good condition.
This wonderful kitty is ready for a home of her own!
|JellyBelly & JellyBean|
These adorable siblings will win you over with their kitten antics and loud purr motors. They are all about playing, playing, playing until they are tired. Then all they want to do is cuddle in your lap and purr, purr, purr. Their siblings (Fritz & Johann) will be posted separately.
JELLYBELLY is the smallest of his siblings but he has a BIG personality to make up for his small size. He is bold and friendly and loves to explore, chase his sister JellyBean, and bat at his big feline foster brother's puffy tail (Fluffy isn't however amused!). JellyBelly loves to poof out his coat to demonstrate how big he can look and do that funny sideways cat dance to entice his sister to play. He also has an interesting coat - it's black with a brownish tabby undercoat.
JELLYBEAN is a tad bit more reserved than her brother. At least she thinks before she leaps! JellyBean is sweet and loving as much as she is playful and funny. She makes a good partner with with JellyBelly since she is currently still a little bigger than he is. And both JellyBean and JellyBelly are quite a bit smaller than their two brothers.
These kittens will be moving to a new foster home where they will have exposure to an older child and and low-key dog. So far, they haven't had a wide range of exposures but seem very adaptable. Therefore, if their forever home has kids, the kids should be older and the home should be relatively quiet to moderately active.
JellyBelly and JellyBean make an adorable pair. They are never far apart from each other - whether they are playing, or napping. They are always together. They came into our care with their two siblings from a loving home that had too many kitties to care for.
|Julia & Oscar|
JULIA has an adorable nose which is half pink, half brown. She is a sweet purring machine who loves being petted. When you meet Julia, it's easy to see why she usually gets her way! She has an outgoing personality, and isn't shy about letting you know what she wants.
OSCAR has beautiful sea green eyes. He has a soft, sweet personality and is always up for cuddles or down time. Oscar also won't miss an opportunity to play - with his sister or with you. So be ready for play time with this sweet boy. He can sometimes get a little testy with a nip or swat so no young children for this playful boy.
Oscar has allergies that manifest as bumps around his neck and chest. We have been working with a veterinary dermatologist to address Oscar's allergies. We don't know what he's allergic to but are covering our bases with special hypo-allergenic food and medication called Atopica. Oscar is a food hound and gobbles up his medication without even knowing it! So medicating this boy is easy.
Julia & Oscar need a forever home where they will get plenty of attention and have room to roam around and play. They would LOVE a family with older kids or a work-from-home situation where their caretaker is home during the day. Both kitties are very social and easy-going around people - they will bond right away with anyone who loves them!
Note: We are waiving the adoption fee for this pair due to Oscar's special needs.
Lady Luck can be adopted as a single adult into any type of home in terms of activity level. Or she can join a home with an existing compatible feline or a cat-friendly dog would be fine too.
Lady Luck was found in the parking lot of a local Walmart store after approaching an SPCA foster mom! She was very pregnant, dirty, but incredibly sweet. Who could walk away from this sweetheart?!! So, needless to say, Lady Luck went home with the foster and a few days later gave birth to adorable kittens (Billy, Tabitha & Wendy - posted separately, and Matilda - adopted!).
Ladybug can be adopted as a single kitty into any type of home environment, with or without kids. She may be fine with another compatible feline although we haven't seen her with other cats. Ladybug would also be ok with a laid back, cat friendly dog who won't pay any attention to her.
Ladybug came into SPCA's care from a local shelter with newborn kittens.
|Lucy & Phoebe|
LUCY is very curious, playful and full of energy. She is very social and loves to take cat naps next to her sister. Lucy also loves to sit high and watch what's happening around her. This sweet girl greets you at the door every day, and acts like the queen of the castle!
PHOEBE is a bold, agile, independent, intelligent, fuzzy little kitty baby. She loves to climb on everything and then takes a kitty dive off of whatever she's on. Phoebe is very curious and loves to explore new environments. She is always ready to play with either her toys or her sister. Phoebe has a loyal and friendly temperament.
These girls are snugglers - always curling up in a ball to keep each other warm during nap time. They also love to climb into their foster mom's nap for snuggling and petting.
These girls need a relatively quiet to moderately active home. They have not been exposed to kids so they would do great in an adult-only home or a home with older kids. These girls came into our care from a loving home.
Merrie does great with kids having lived with a loving family since he was a kitten. His activity level ranges from mellow to moderately active. Merrie especially likes playing with strings. He loves to be picked up and snuggled, especially if you rev up his purr motor by scratching beneath his chin or behind his ears. Merrie also enjoys watching birds out the window.
Merrie is perfect for a family with a couple of older kids whose home is moderately active. He would also do ok in a home with just adults, as long as there are at least two people living in the home and they are around the home a good part of the day (e.g., working from home) and they want a cat who loves to play. Merrie would do fine with a like-minded kitty but is ok as a single cat as long as he gets plenty of people-time and play-time.
Merrie's family moved to Hawaii and were concerned about the stress such a long move and possible 4 month quarantine would case him. (Hawaii is a rabies-free state and has strict rules about quarantine for incoming animals). So SPCA has agreed to take Merrie into our care and find him another loving family.
|Mocha & Lattte|
Moche & Latte purr when you pick them up, and have oodles of curiosity for new environments. They especially enjoy playing chase with each other and any of the foster family's children who swing a wand toy their way. These girls are very comfortable with large dogs, other cats and children.
Mocha & Latte are Gretchen's kittens - born in our care, along with their siblings (Eggnog & Cider - already adopted!). They have been handled by people since they were born and are very-people friendly little girls.
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 also enjoys hanging out with her foster mom and being petted behind her ears and on her neck. However, she's a little too sensitive to be petted elsewhere on her body and will nip at your hands if you do this. She will, however, let you brush her coat lightly to keep it light and fluffy!
Murissa needs an adult-only home with no other pets. She will take a little time to settle into a new environment. Once she does, Murissa will reign over her little kingdom like a princess.
Murissa came into our care with a litter of kittens from a local shelter.
|Polly & Pita|
POLLY (brown/white tabby) is a bit more outgoing and dominant than her sister, Pita. She likes to 'talk' to you and keeps the conversation going if you 'talk' back. Polly likes to play with her cat toys, and like her sister, loves nap time. Her favorite thing to do is to sneak in the bathtub and drink dripping water from the faucet. Polly also likes to sit by the patio door and catch the morning sun on her fur.
PITA (black/white) was initially very shy when first coming into our care. But no more! Pita is so sweet, loving and affectionate. She follows you around and will also 'talk back' if you 'talk' to her. Pita loves, loves, loves playing with toys - catnip toys, strings, anything that moves. Her fur is really soft which makes her an especially good kitty for petting.
At night, both girls either cuddle with each other at the top of their cat tree, or by your side. They love being petted and brush, rolling around on the floor and laying flat on their backs. So funny to watch! Pita has an especially loud purr motor and Polly likes tummy rubs.
These loving sisters were sadly abandoned by their caretaker who adopted them from SPCA as kittens. We can only imagine how traumatizing this has been for the girls to suddenly lose their home. However, with a quiet home and patient caretaker, both girls have rebounded beautifully. They are on a strict wet food only diet - high in protein, low in carbs - to help them lose weight.
|Sophie & Tally|
SOPHIE is small in size, but has a HUGE personality! She plays well with the other kitties and big cat-friendly dogs in her foster home and rules the roost! Sophie is the first kitty in the morning to arrive for breakfast to chow down her food. While Sophie is a feisty little kitty, she is also a snuggler and looks for laps to show off her incredibly loud purr. She loves to play with the ponytails of her human sisters and entice them to play with her.
Sophie is truly lucky to be alive. She was found in someone's backyard as a tiny kitten with part of one of her hind legs missing. Because the rest of her leg was infected, she underwent emergency surgery (only weighing 6 ounces!) to remove the rest of her leg. This tough start in life hasn't, however, slowed this little survivor down one bit!
TALLY is a friendly, active girl who loves playing and cuddling. She's quite rambunctious when she is in play mode. But Tally also likes to sit and watch what happens around her and doesn't interfere much. Tally is also a big cuddler when it comes to nap time. Her foster mom says she LOVES dogs and even acts like them. When the dogs hear something outside and run to the window, Tally follows to see what's happening. Tally came into our care, along with her siblings Friskey and Razzy (adopted!), as tiny babies.
Sophie and Tally need an active home. They do great with kids, other cats and dogs and need activity around them to keep them occupied when they aren't snuggling with their humans.
When Stardust is not in play-mode, he is very loving. He likes being carried around and looking out the windows (watching the birds and squirrels outside). Stardust likes getting his head scratched and gives you 'kitty kisses' in return to show his affection.
Stardust is currently in a foster home with only older adult cats - he really needs another male kitten or adult male cat to bond and play with.
Stardust must have another kitty in his forever home - we are looking for a compatible SPCA kitten to pair him up with or he can go to a home with an active young male kitty. We have not seen him interact with kids, but a home with older kids would be great. He would love to have human buddies to play and interact with. We are looking for another SPCA kitten to pair him up with or he can be adopted into a home with another very active male kitty.
Stardust is a little miracle. He was found running along a rural country road all by himself by an SPCA volunteer. He was hungry and scared, and had fleas and earmites. He also had a scraped up face and part of his tail is missing. None of this has affected Stardust's spirit - he is friendly and full of life. All he needs is an active home to call his own.
Thelma is a calm, sweet-natured and curious teenager who is addicted to love. She eagerly seeks attention from her foster family and won't stop asking for a good head rub or snuggle any chance she gets. She likes to explore, sleep on her foster mom's lap, play with wand toys and enjoys the company of the foster family's dogs. Thelma is perfectly content to be an only kitty in the household, although she would also do well with an older, low-key cat who needs a new companion.
Thelma may be adopted as a single kitty or as companion for an older kitty. She also does great with cat-friendly dogs. Thelma does well in any type of home with or without kids. She came into our care along with her brother (adopted) from a local shelter.
|Tina & Tucker|
These kittens are now very social, purr instantly when you talk to them or pick them up, and follow the foster family everywhere. Hard to believe they came into SPCA's care from a local shelter as little, scared kitten. They were given to a foster family whose daughter loves to 'kiss all the scaredy cat' out of her foster kittens, and she did!
These kittens do great with a family with kids, with adult cats and cat friendly dogs, too.
Tony needs an active household with either another cat to play with, or a friendly, playful dog who likes cats would be fine too! Tony came into SPCA's care with his siblings (all adopted) as young kittens from outdoors. He is currently being fostered with Claudius and Nero (listed separately).
