Abby & Lucas
These babies are cute, cute, cute!
ABBY & LUCAS are very people-oriented. They reward human attention with loud purr motors as they hold their tails high.

They are 'twins' in both their looks and active personalities. They are loving and playful. And, Abby considers herself in charge of greeting new people and exploring expeditions.

These kittens have been exposed to dogs, adult cats and older children. They came into our care from local shelter, with their brother Harley (adopted!), as tiny kittens and are now ready for a forever home or homes of their own.

Ashes, Cinder & Sparky
Meet three active, loving boys!
ASHES, CINDER & SPARKY are social-butterflies! They thrive on lots of human interaction and need homes with families with kids.

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

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

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

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

Ayra, Brianna & Jamie
These tabby girls are adorable!
ARYA, BRIANNA & JAMIE are friendly girls! They must be adopted with a compatible SPCA kitten or into a home with an existing compatible kitty.

AYRA (brown/white tabby, short-haired) is a very friendly, energetic and playful kitty. She loves to run and play with other cats and loves to be around people.

BRIANNA (grey tabby, short-haired) is just as playful and energetic as her best buddy, Ayra. She loves to roam around and explore and then come back to her foster family for a cuddle.

JAMIE (grey/white tabby, medium-haired) is a little shy at first, but loves to be held and caressed. Once she is comfortable with you, Jamie stands at your feet and meows to be picked up. And, she loves to be carried around like a baby.

These kittens came into our care after being rescued from outdoors. Their two other sisters have been adopted!

Beatrice& Thor
Tina's kittens are too cute!
BEATRICE & THOR are little love bugs who will melt your heart. They do well with older kids who are gentle and respectful of their need to be kittens!

BEATRICE (medium-haired) has soft and silky smooth fur. She is the only female of the group and behaves like the little princess that she is. Beatrice is very curious and moderately playful. Now that her brothers Loki and Oswald have been adopted, she is doing well with Thor. When Beatrice was with all three brothers, they were a bit too rambunctious for her. Beatrice needs a quite to moderately active home to fit her temperament.

THOR (medium-haired) is the most adventuresome and independent male of the group. He loves to pounce, wrestle and play with his pals and climb on the scratching post. Although he's usually busy exploring and playing, he does come up to his foster family for snuggles and head scratches. Thor is also quite the purr baby and is beyond tolerant, letting the child in his foster home carry him around.

These kittens came into our care with their mom, Tina, and their brothers, Loki and Oswald (adopted!), from a local shelter.

Beyonce & Celine
BEYONCE & CELINE

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

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

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

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

Caramella
Caramella is a sweetheart!
CARAMELLA is a sweet and affectionate tortoiseshell with beautiful markings and golden-yellow eyes. Who says tortoiseshell cats are sassy?!? Not this sweet girl! She has a loving, low-key demeanor.

Caramella is so affectionate and attentive - her behavior is like a puppy! She runs to greet you at the door after you've been away from home, and enjoys following you around the house to be near you.

Caramella's favorite toy is the laser pointer. She senses when you have it in your hand, jumping back and forth eager for action. Caramella's downtime consists of lounging in her hammock and snuggling with you on the couch. She loves giving kisses and purrs immediately when petted.

Caramella will do best in a home with a friendly, low-key kitty to bond and play with. She is initially timid toward other cats but is now very happy with the two playful but gentle kitties in her foster home. We will consider a home for her as a single cat only if her caretaker(s) is home a lot - perhaps a stay-at-home parent or retired person who is home a fair amount during the day, or someone who works from home. She would do fine with an older child or two as long as the home is relatively quiet.

This sweet girl has so much love to give. She was abandoned at an apartment complex along with another cat. The other kitty was taken in by another resident and Caramella was transferred to our care. We are now looking for just the right home for this gentle, loving girl!

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

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

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

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

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

Chip & Ruby
These kittens are purrrrrrfect!
CHIP & RUBY are very friendly little social butterflies. They adore people, adapt immediately to new surroundings and are highly entertaining. Both kittens are very energetic - when they are in play mode, you need to let them play. When they tire out, they are absolute love bugs. They need a home with a family with kids who can shower them with love, affection and plenty of interaction. They are bonded and must be adopted as a pair.

CHIP (grey/white, short-haired) purrs the moment he sees you, and loves to be cuddled in your arms. Once he is done playing, Chip is a calm and well behaved kitten - loving lap time and snuggling with you as much as he likes play time. Chip loves playing with his sister, Ruby, and interacts with anything that moves - feather toys, toy mice, little balls etc. He especially loves paper bags and kitty tunnels. Chip is fearless - and loves to playfully chase the big cat, Speedy, in his foster home - so funny to watch a 3 pound kitten chase a 12 pound cat! (Although Speedy doesn't think this is funny!)

RUBY (black/white/orange calico, medium-haired) is a true gem. She is absolutely adorable and sure to be a gorgeous adult cat just like a little princess. Ruby is a petite little girl who is the smallest among her siblings. And she has a purrrrr that could kill...with cuteness. When you open up the 'kitten room' to let her explore and chase her brother around their foster home, she comes running out wagging her tail just like a dog! It's so cute. Ruby is sweet and loveable and loves playtime and nap time with people as much as her brother, Chip, does. She is a cuddly lap girl when she is done playing and loves being around people. Ruby's favorite toys are little furry mice that she can carry in her mouth.

Last two photos: Chip and Ruby are enjoying playing in a screened-in porch!

Chip and Ruby came into our care with their siblings, Cookie and Ruffles (posted separately). Believe it or not - they arrived in our care in a cardboard box weighing less than one pound each. They are growing up fast and ready for a home to call their own.

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

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

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

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

Cookie & Ruffles
These kittens are full of energy!
COOKIE & RUFFLES are sweet, friendly and energetic kittens. They love playing with strings and balls, and wrestling with each other for hours before settling down. They love special cuddle time with their foster parents and following them around their home like little ducklings. They need a quiet to moderately active home with adults or older kids (12 years or older). They are bonded and must be adopted as a pair.

COOKIE (black/white medium-haired) could be the top model of the cat world. Her white whiskers beautifully accentuate her perfect facial features. Cookie loves hanging out with her foster parents and her brother, Ruffles, but also has an independent streak. Cookie can entertain herself with toys but she also seeks human affection and is very loving. She enjoys napping on her foster parents bed when they are watching TV and especially likes being petted under her chin and behind her ears. Cookie is guaranteed to bring joy to your life!

RUFFLES (orange tabby, short-haired) is a fun boy who loves to play. He is guaranteed to bring you lots of joy with his kitten antics. Give him a cat toy to play with and you will have an hour of entertainment! Ruffles also absolutely LOVES cuddle time and needs you to include that in your schedule. He follows his foster mom around their home and meows for her whenever not in his sight. He will make the perfect addition to any cat-loving home.

Cookie and Ruffles came into our care with their siblings, Ruby and Chip (posted separately). Believe it or not - they arrived in our care in a cardboard box weighing less than one pound each. They are growing up fast and ready for a home to call their own.

Crackle & Pop
These brown tabby babies are adorable!
CRACKLE & POP are friendly, loving kittens with cute little personalities. Their brother, Snap, has been adopted! Crackle and Pop need to be adopted together!

CRACKLE (female, classic tabby) & POP (male, tabby) are happy to keep each other entertained. They have soft purr motors and like chasing each other up and down the cat tree. They need a forever home or homes either with adults or older, quieter kids would be fine.

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

Ember
Ember is a sweetheart!
EMBER is a sweet brown tabby girl! She likes getting attention from her foster family but isn't overly needy. She purrs and leans into you when you pick her up. Ember also meows softly when she wants attention - or food!

Ember is moderately playful - sometimes low-key and other times she has shown us that she likes to stalk, pounce and wrestle with a male kitten in her foster home. Ember does great with the foster family's dogs and kids.

Ember came into our care with a litter of 5 kittens - all adopted! She was a great mama to her babies but now they all have homes of her own and Ember needs one too!

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

Ginger needs a home with adults or older children where she will be the only pet in the household. She has been exposed to dogs in a foster home and they make her nervous. Ginger also needs a home where her caretakers are home quite a bit - a home with a retired couple, work-from-home adults, and/or older kids would be ideal. Just give her people and lots of love and this sweet girl will reward you with a life time of companionship and affection!

Ginger came into our care as a pregnant stray kitty; her kittens were born in our care (Marley, Maui, Maggie and Misty).

Grigio & Tahoe
These boys are sweet and playful!
GRIGIO & TAHOE are bonded brothers who need to be adopted together.

GRIGIO has gorgeous long and very soft fur. His foster mom says petting him feels like petting a cloud! Grigio is a tad bit shy but once you hold him he's a snuggler. And when he falls asleep in your arms or on your lap his purrs up a storm - sounding more like a chainsaw! Grigio especially loves snuggling up with his brother, Tahoe. This sweet boy has never met a laser pointer he doesn't like - so pull out the laser pointer when he's playful and he will entertain you for hours!

TAHOE is a bit more rambunctious than his brother, Grigio. He plays long and hard! But when Tahoe is done playing, he crashes hard as well. That's when he likes to snuggle up with you or his brother. Tahoe also loves really vigorous petting - purring up a storm like his brother. This sweet boy doesn't like being separated from his brother and cries if his brother gets out of his sight - so cute! Tahoe also loves his foster family's dog.

These boys have been exposed to older kids and both do well with the energetic dog in their foster home. They came into our care after being found outside on a local farm as tiny kittens.

Han Solo & Vader
These boys are sweethearts!
HAN SOLO & VADER are inseparable siblings who are friendly with everyone. They are moderately-playful and big time snugglers who love to cuddle up with people to show their affection. They are best buddies and need to be adopted together.

HAN SOLO is a handsome brown and white tabby. He is quite a bit smaller than his brother but is equally matched during play-time. Han Solo has a nice purr motor and adores interacting with people - especially for petting, belly rubs and interactive playtime.

VADER is a stunning black and white tuxedo whose eyes look up at you adoringly. He is HUGE - with very long legs and a lanky body. Vader loves people and doesn't hesitate to plop down for you to give him a nice belly rub. Like his brother, he loves being petted and scratched under his chin.

These boys love hanging out with people, and will come running when you call them. They are also content to hang out with each other and sit in a windowsill to watch the birds and squirrels outdoors.

These boys were adopted out from us as kittens. They ended up back in our care after their adopter developed allergies to cats.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Note: A few months ago, we moved a new cat, Morris, into Ike's foster home. Ike and Morris have hit it off wonderfully and we've decided these boys need to be adopted as a pair. You can read about Morris on our Guardian Angel page at: http://www.spcanova.org/adoption/morepics_cats.php?id=958. See the video of the boys keeping each other company - very endearing!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

JULIA & OSCAR are a sweet-natured duo. They are inseparable and must be adopted together.

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

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

Julia and Oscar came into SPCA care as tiny, orphaned kittens. They got lots of TLC in our care and are now ready for a home of their own.

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

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

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

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

LIAM is a snuggle bug with a quiet demeanor. He just can't get enough cuddling with his foster family!

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

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

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

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

It will take Mac a little time to get use to a new environment. Once he settles in, he gets more and more affectionate - rubbing up against your legs and nudging your hands when he wants to be petted. He is a little shy with new people, and loud, unfamiliar noises. Once Mac observes visitors in his foster home, he warms up to them easily. We haven't seen Mac interact with dogs, other cats or kids. He will adapt easiest to a relatively quiet home, probably as the only pet although he may do fine with a low-key, friendly feline.

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

Maggie & Misty
These girls are sweetness wrapped in furry packages!
MAGGIE & MISTY are gentle and sweet. They get along with adults and children alike and are not afraid to meet new people. They love spending time with their foster family, especially if it involves a laser pointer or anything on a string.

MAGGIE is a colorful tabby with splashes of orange accenting her brown tabby stripes. She is a very friendly, social kitty who enjoys being petted. She loves to cuddle with her foster mom. She comes running with her tail up when she is called. Maggie is a little more playful than her sister, Misty.

MISTY is a tuxedo kitty with adorable long white whiskers. She loves to play and snuggle with her sister, Maggie. Misty likes to hang out in the cat tree and keep an eye on everyone, and hangs back a little bit when her sister is playing. Misty also enjoys finding a sunny spot in the house and stretching out for a nap.

These kittens were born in our care along with their siblings Marley and Maui (posted separately). Their mom, Gracie, was a pregnant stray kitty when she was rescued from the streets.

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

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

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

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

Marley & Maui
These kittens are sweet!
MARLEY & MAUI are sweet, playful kittens. They are bonded and need to be adopted together.

Both Marley and Maui are friendly and affectionate - toward each other and with their foster family. They adore each other - playing and enjoying just hanging out with each other. They follow their foster mom around their home and always want to be with their foster family. And they have decided their favorite sleeping spot is on top of their foster dad! Their foster mom says they are such a joy to be around.

Marley and Maui are now pretty comfortable around the small dogs (Yorki-poo and Shi-poo) in their foster home. It took them a little while to get to know the dogs but they now sleep near them.

These kittens were born in our care along with their siblings Misty and Maggie (posted separately). Their mom, Gracie, was a pregnant stray kitty when she was rescued from the streets.

Maverick
Maverick has a big personality!
MAVERICK is an outgoing, confident boy who loves, loves, LOVES the dog in his foster family's home. He also needs a home with kids to keep this handsome boy entertained with lots of interactive play. He is easily entertained with just about anything - especially a feather toy.

Maverick is an unusual kitten - he prefers dogs and needs a dog in his forever home rather than a feline buddy. He is very energetic so he needs a young, energetic dog to bond and play with. Any type of activity level in his forever home would be fine.

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

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

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

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

NOTE: these girls are much bigger now; will post updated photos soon.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nisha
Nisha has a sweet, easy-going demeanor.
NISHA is a calm, relaxed kitty. She comes running when you call her and loves to have her head scratched. Nisha is not shy around strangers - at all! She is happy to greet your visitors as long as they are not too noisy.

Nisha is also very playful when it comes to batting her toy mouse around. She has also been spotted chasing her own tail like a kitten. Then after some fun and games, Nisha enjoys sitting in the window where she can watch the squirrels and birds outdoors or retreat to her own quite space to chill out.

This sweet girl needs a quiet to moderately active home with adults or one or two older children. She does not like other cats and we haven't seen her interact with dogs. So Nisha is ideal for someone who wants a single, quiet and well-behaved cat.

Nisha was rescued by a kind woman who found Nisha abandoned outdoors at a landscaping business. This woman brought Nisha home, hoping to integrate Nisha with her own cat. But it was clear that both cats wanted to be the only pet in the home. So Nisha is now in SPCA's care waiting for a someone to give her a forever home of her own.

Pandora - Adoption Pending!
Pandora is a sweet, low-key kitty!
PANDORA is truly a special girl! She has been through a lot since coming into our care and she is almost ready for adoption.

Pandora is smart, playful and loves, loves, LOOOOVES to cuddle! She is the best nap cat her foster mom has ever had. Her nickname is 'Spoon' because she loves to smoosh right up against you when sleeping, but she isn't intrusive or demanding. Pandora is always up for a snuggle. When she isn't snuggling, she just hangs out at the top of the stairs which is a good vantage point for surveying her territory.

Pandora has started learning to play with toys and loves throwing her little stuffed mice down the stairs and then batting after them. It's funny to watch. She's still a young cat and likes to chase feathers, stalk the squirrels from the window, and follow you from room to room. She has a very goofy side and is not afraid to show it!

Her foster mom has also started teaching her tricks. Pandora knows how to sit and how to lie down on command. This sweet girl came into our care as a pregnant, stray kitty.

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

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

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

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

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

Ruby Tuesday - Needs foster home end of Sept 2016!
Ruby is friendly and sassy!
RUBY TUESDAY is a multi-dimensional kitty. She is friendly and playful. She is also sweet and independent...and just a little bit sassy when being petted or restrained. Ruby does great with cat-friendly dogs, but 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 used to Cassie, but now her favorite pastime 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 her a forever home!

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

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

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

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

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

Tia
Tia needs a family to keep this sweet girl occupied!
TIA is not your average calico kitty. She is a native of Guyana, South America, who left behind hunting exotic birds and lizards, and climbing coconut trees, to live the American Dream.

Tia is a loving and very playful young kitty who craves human affection and playful interaction. She is very friendly and eagerly jumps on your lap or rubs against you. Tia loves to be petted and groomed and purrs loudly when getting attention. She can also be vocal when she wants your attention.

Tia needs a home without other pets. She also needs a family with kids who want a playful, interactive kitty. Tia is very curious and investigates anything new and different with keen interest. Tia enjoys sleeping in the mid-afternoon and becomes very playful in the evenings.

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

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

Tilly has warmed up quickly to to her foster parents and with the resident male cat. She enjoys instigating a game of chase with her feline buddy and makes it clear who is the boss! Tilly likes to follow her foster parents around their place and always seems interested in what they are doing. She is also a snuggler and loves sleeping in between her foster parents at night and has an adorable chirp she uses when she wants attention. She is also a very well-mannered kitty who doesn't jump on counters and always uses her scratching post.

Tilly needs a kitty to play with in her forever home. She is also comfortable with cat friendly, laid-back dogs and older children. She can be a little sassy and likes to have things her way.

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

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

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

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

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