Our Adoption Process

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).

Ahsoka (aka Soki)
Soki is a sweet, playful kitty!
AHSOKA (Soki) is a friendly, moderately playful teenager. She does great with the other cats in her foster home, and LOVES playing with the resident bunny! Soki needs a like-minded female kitty in her forever home to bond and play with.

Soki is a petite girl. But this doesn't keep her from play-fighting or running around with the other young kitties in her foster home. Her foster mom says Soki is the smartest of the bunch - she thinks about things and assesses her options before acting. Soki also loves snuggling up next to you at night while purring. And in the morning, she likes to wake the child in her foster home up by jumping up on his bed and laying across his legs.

Soki needs a forever home with a young, compatible kitty. She can be adopted along with another SPCA kitty or into a home with a like-minded playmate. And she does great with older kids.

Soki came into our care from a local shelter.

Cupid & Luna
These kittens have gorgeous blue-grey coats of fur.
CUPID & LUNA are friendly, rambunctious kittens who need a VERY ACTIVE home with kids who will keep them entertained. A home with other young active cats or a big friendly dog would be a plus!

CUPID loves to play with other cats and dogs, and when he's ready to nap, he seeks humans to cuddle with. He likes to climb the cat tree in the foster home and keep an eye on everyone's activities. Cupid always wants to be next to his sister, who is the instigator in all of their adventures.

LUNA is extremely playful, and even keeps playing when her brother tires out and takes a nap. Luna comes running when she hears her name, and meows when she's looking for her foster mom. She likes to sleep under blankets and is an acrobat when climbing the cat tree.

Cupid and Luna need an active household with devoted play time to keep them entertained and where people enjoy and appreciate their high energy level. They are great with other like-minded young, playful adult cats, and enjoy playing with cat-friendly dogs, too.

These kittens came into the SPCA's care as tiny orphaned kittens found in a wood pile. They were moved to an experienced foster mom who bottle fed them and gave them the support they needed to grow into amazing kittens.

Cutie
Cutie is a sweetheart!
CUTIE is a sweet-natured kitty with beautiful green eyes and a gorgeous fluffy tail. He is very social with people, greeting you or guests at the door to say 'hello.' If Cutie wants attention, he gently taps his paw on your arm or leg to get your attention.

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 a quiet kitty, but will meow 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.

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.

This sweet boy will do best as the only pet in his new home. We aren't sure how he would respond to another kitty. His 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.

Garfield & Jon - Adoption Pending!
These boys adore each other!
GARFIELD & JON are sweet, fun-loving and affectionate teenage kitties. They are a bonded pair and need to be adopted together. When separated, they often call out to each other to see what the other one is doing. Very cute!

These boys love hanging out with their foster parents - Garfield is over-the-top affectionate, while Jon is more reserved. They are moderately playful and equally matched during play time. They take turns initiating play, chasing and wrestling with each other and playing with toys. They have wonderful purr motors and sleep next to each other or next to you when play-time is over.

GARFIELD has a typical orange tabby personality - both playful and laid-back in one package. He settles into a new home almost immediately. Garfield has super soft fur and looks for his foster mom's lap after meals for some cuddling and petting. Garfield adores human affection and likes to be picked up and held. He is a true lap cat!

JON is a bit more reserved than Garfield. He needs a little more reassurance with new people in a new home. But within a couple of days, Jon is right there with his brother looking for play-time and people-time. Jon likes to initiate contact with you and jumps into your lap and gives you head-butts when he wants your attention.

These boys are looking for a calm environment to settle into with no other pets or young children now or in the future. They came into our care from a local shelter with their siblings (Pookie, Odie, Squeak & Nermal - adopted!).

Ivory
Ivory is a cuddle-bug!
IVORY is a big beautiful white cat with different colored eyes - one blue, one yellow. He is a sweet, affectionate kitty who loves hanging out with people.

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.

Jackson
Jackson needs a young male feline buddy to bond and play with!
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 entertain 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.

Jasper
Jasper is a handsome boy with a gorgeous mane!
JASPER is a sweet, fluffy boy who loves hanging out with his foster parents. Once he gets to know you, he likes to be petted and brushed and shows his happiness by purring and 'making biscuits' when you pet him.

Jasper will be shy in a new home with new people until he has time to feel safe and secure. It could take him several weeks to settle in. Once Jasper has reassurance from his new guardians that he is safe and loved, he will slowly open up. Jasper will follow you from room to room, hang out with you as you are watching TV, readying or working on your computer, and sleep at the foot of your bed at night.

Jasper also loves playing with toys. He throws them in the air and bats them down quickly, or bats them up and down the stairs. While Jasper does like to play, he isn't overly rambunctious.

Jasper is looking for a quiet home that isn't expected to change much over time such as frequent moves to a new home. He also needs a home without young children now or in the future. He would do fine in a quiet home with an older child who understands it will take him a little while to adjust. A young person who may have kids down the road is not the right home for Jasper. We haven't seen Jasper interact with other cats but he may do fine with another sweet, moderately playful cat to keep him company.

Jasper came into our care after a kind person found him starving and looking for food and shelter on her back porch!

Kimchi & Sashimi - Adoption Pending!
These girls are lively!
KIMCHI & SASHIMI are sweet and lively girls who are sure to keep you entertained for hours. They like to race in and out of their kitty tunnel, climb to the very top of their cat tree and chase each other almost non-stop. When they are done playing, they like to snuggle next to you for some much needed down time. These girls are bonded and must be adopted together.

KIMCHI (tortoiseshell, short-haired) has a cute squeaky meow which has earned her the nickname 'Squeaky.' She uses her little meow often to let you know she needs something - like another meal, some playful interaction or more cuddle-time. Kimchi likes to explore, but takes her cues from her sister. She can spook initially with new sounds or new people but as soon as she gets her bearings, Kimchi is right in the middle of everything. When done playing, Kimchi loves to be cuddled while purring away.

SASHIMI (black, long-haired) is bold and beautiful. Her fluffy coat and golden eyes make a cute combination for this sweet girl. But her looks can fool you - this girl is not a dainty princess. Sashimi is bold and adventurous - always looking for something new to explore. She is also as fast as lightening so you need to be careful where you step and which doors you are opening and closing. Before you know it, Sashimi is under your feet or out the door - sneaking into a room that is off limits! And, like her sister, she loves cuddle time when she is done exploring.

These girls are two of Hocus Pocus's six kittens. Their siblings, Tofu, Wonton, Sushi & Pho, are posted separately. They came into our care from a local shelter.

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

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

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!

Murissa
This girl is a little princess!
MURISSA is a friendly girl who is a bit of a diva! She likes 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.

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.

Mystic
Mystic is a sweet, laid-back kitty.
MYSTIC is a laid-back, friendly kitty. He settled easily into his foster home with two resident cats. This sweet boy is a talker - he likes to trill back when you talk to him, especially if it's dinner time.

Mystic likes to chase ping pong balls, and is an avid bird watcher. He enjoys the company of humans and is most content when he can nap next to you and has a snuggle spot in a soft blanket.

Mystic needs a forever home with a like-minded feline buddy. He has not been exposed to dogs, but a laid-back, cat-friendly dog would probably be ok. Mystic has been around children of all ages. His current foster home is relatively quiet and he seems fine in any type of home environment.

Mystic came into SPCA's care from a partner rescue organization who came to Mystic's rescue after he was found outdoors with a badly injured tail. Sadly, his tail could not be repaired and had to be surgically removed. Luckily, Mystic doesn't suffer from any ill effects from this injury. He is a happy boy who needs a loving home of his own.

Orange Crush
Orange Crush is a friendly, active boy!
ORANGE CRUSH is a sweet, lively boy who loves to be where the action is. He is also easy-going and can make a toy out of anything - his specialty is water bottle caps and pipe cleaners. He loves to carry one of these 'treasures' around for all to see.

Orange Crush likes to follow his foster family around waiting to be picked up and cuddled. He hasn't quite mastered the chirping sound, but that doesn't stop him from using it when he wants attention. It sounds more like a goofy chirp-meow which is adorable.

Orange Crush gets along well with the older kids and cats in his foster home. He needs to be adopted along with another SPCA kitty or into a home with a compatible young cat. He has been introduced to another SPCA cat, Mohawk, and they did great together. OC and Mohawk can be adopted together or separately.

Orange Crush came into our care from a local shelter.

Pho & Sushi - Meet us at PetValu, Falls Church, Sat 4/29
PHO & SUSHI are very vocal, loving and hilarious kittens! These girls are great buddies and need to be adopted together.

PHO (brown tabby, short-haired) is the instigator of the two. She is always seeing what mischief she can get into, bringing her sister along for the ride. Pho goes full speed exploring her foster home - running back and forth before finding something soft to curl up and sleep on.

SUSHI (black, short-haired) is a huge love bug! She will be your shadow following you all throughout the house to see what you're up to. After running around with her sister to explore, Sushi likes to snuggle in your nap (and give a few kitty kisses if you're lucky!)

These girls would be great in a home with kids 6 years or older who know how to handle playful kittens. They are use to being handled by the kids in their foster home. They also love interacting with the adult male cat in their foster home, following him around to see what the big boys do. They are a little weary of the big friendly dog, so a forever home without a dog is needed for these girls.

Pho and Sushi are two of Hocus Pocus's six kittens. Their siblings, Tofu, Wonton, Kimchi & Sashimi, are posted separately. They 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.

Tina - Adoption Pending!
Tina is a talker!
TINA is a sweet, well-mannered kitty who loves being the center of attention. She likes hanging out with her foster family and needs a home where people are around a good part of the day. Tina gets too lonely when left alone for long periods of time.

Tina loves rubbing against your legs in hopes of a good petting. Tina has a loud purr motor and enjoys gently batting her toys around the house - especially strings and hair ties. 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 snuggling by your side. A talkative kitty, Tina 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.

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

Tofu & Wonton - Adoption Pending!
These brothers are a dynamic duo!
TOFU & WONTON are extremely playful, active brothers who will keep you on your toes! They are bonded and need to be adopted together.

TOFU (brown tabby, long-haired) has soft fluffy fur and beautiful facial markings. The cat tree is his kingdom! When Tofu is not taking a mid-afternoon nap, he enjoys observing the activity around him, and waiting for the perfect moment to pounce on his brother and engage in a wrestling match.

WONTON (brown tabby, short-haired) is a talkative boy with adorable green wonder-filled eyes. He is a tiny ball of fire that likes to have an audience while jumping around and playing with his toys. For downtime, Wonton enjoys taking a snooze with his brother or curling up in a blanket on the couch next to his foster mom.

These boys are very active kittens who need a forever home where they will get lots of love and attention. A family with older kids would be ideal. They have been introduced to adult cats in their current foster home, and the meetings have gone well. They are not shy or timid and are ready for their next adventure!

Tofu & Wonton are two of Hocus Pocus's six kittens. Their siblings, Pho, Sushi, Kimchi & Sashimi, are posted separately. They came into our care from a local shelter.
