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).

April
April needs a new foster home (or forever home) by early July!
APRIL is such a sweet girl! She loves hanging out with her foster mom and welcoming guests into their home. April is not shy one bit!

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.

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's current foster mom can keep her only until early July. Then her foster mom is taking in her sister's two cats and doesn't have room for three cats. So we need a new foster (or permanent) home for April who will be diligent in continuing her strict diet and monthly weight checks (with a pet scale we will provide).

April would do fine with older kids in a quiet to moderately active home. A home with stairs would also be great to help her get daily exercise. April would probably do fine with another low-key cat although being the only kitty would be ideal for feeding purposes.

April was initially rescued by SPCA and adopted out as a kitten.

Asoka, Ayala, Leia, Luke & Yoda
Meet the Star Wars kitties!
ASHOKA, AYALA, LEIA, LUKE & YODA

These kittens are very outgoing, great with kids and dogs, and no phased by anyone or anything! They resemble meteorites zooming through space in the opening of the Star Wars movies. So, forever homes that resemble or appreciate this level of activity are needed for these kittens.

ASHOKA (brown tabby) & AYALA (black) wrestle and snuggle in the hammock together and play with anything that moves. Ashoka is very talkative, and Ayala soaks up human attention whenever the opportunity arises. They girls are good buddies; they can be adopted together or separately into homes with an existing playful kitty.

LEIA (tortoiseshell) (adopted!) & YODA (black) (still available!) love to chase each other for hours around their foster home. Leia is a confident, sweet natured kitty, while Yoda is spring loaded with fun.

LUKE (brown tabby)is a rascally boy who can be paired with Samuel (adoption pending!), another SPCA kitten (posted separately), or another like-minded boy kitten or young cat. They are very entertaining - spending hours running after each other, climbing up and down the cat tree, and purring loudly for anyone who will give them attention. Luke is very talkative, like his sister Ashoka, and engages in long conversations with his foster family.

These kittens came into our care from a local shelter.

Bailey, Scout, Socks & Weasley
All tabbies in this litter!
BAILEY, SCOUT, SOCKS & WESLEY are friendly, playful kittens. They all need kitty companionship as specified in their write ups below.

BAILEY (adopted!)(brown tabby, short-haired, female) is people oriented and loves the foster family's 75 lb cat-friendly dog. She keeps up with her brother's shenanigans, but would probably prefer another like-minded, active female companion in her forever home.

SCOUT (adopted!)(brown tabby, medium-haired, female) is a sweet, laid back girl. She loves to be carried around like a baby and cries to get your attention. Scout prefers low key play and is looking for a compatible, female companion who appreciates the art of being a lounge lizard.

SOCKS (brown/white tabby, short-haired, male) (shown in photo with Scout) is rascally, like his brother Weasley. He is often looking for new adventures, toy mice to pounce upon or a feather wand to chase. He is a huge fan of the cat tree in his foster home, and a sturdy cat tree in his forever home is a good investment. Socks and his brother, Weasley, can be paired together into an active home. Or Socks can be adopted separately into a home with another compatible male companion.

WEASLEY (orange tabby, short-haired, male, polydactyl) is a happy, mischievous guy who starts purring the minute you pick him up. He loves to be around people, and is easily entertained with a ping pong ball. Weasley and his brother, Socks, can be paired together into an active home. Or Weasley can be adopted separately into a home with another compatible male companion.

These kittens will do well in any type of forever home. They have been exposed to kids, and a large, cat-friendly dog. They came into SPCA's care after being rescued from outdoors.

Buffy, Willow & Xander
BUFFY, WILLOW & XANDER are quite a trio! They are friendly and playful, and keep their foster family on their toes! These kittens need feline companionship - with a sibling, another SPCA kitten, or into a home with a compatible young cat.

BUFFY (adopted!) is the runt of the litter, but what she lacks in size she makes up for in bravery! This kitten has been the first to try and investigate everything. Buffy is kind and absolutely loves kids. She plays with kids like she does her siblings. Buffy purrs on demand and lays on her back in your lap and sleeps like that for hours if you let her!

WILLOW (solid black) (still available!) loves to play with her toys and siblings. She also cuddles up to you any time you sit down. Willow is a little shy about being picked up, but loves to lay in your lap. She is a sweet kitten, and is a tab bit shyer than her siblings. Willow warms up quickly though and likes to vocalize her feelings. She loves to sleep in a bed next to her humans.

XANDER (adopted!) is a lean playing machine! He spends most of his time chasing after things and carrying his toys around! Xander will lay down with you any time you let him (almost the second you sit down). But then his curiosity gets him up to run about. Xander loves to play with his siblings, and tries to catch his reflection in the mirror.

These kittens do well with children and are use to a moderately active home. They came into our care from outdoors after being rescued outside a pizza parlor.

Charlie
Charlie is a cool cat!
CHARLIE is one cool, confident and laid-back cat. He likes to spend his days watching the world go by looking out the window, greeting anyone who comes to visit and curl up next to his foster mom on the couch to keep her company.

Charlie has a nice purr motor and arches his back in appreciation when he gets your attention. He especially loves being rubbed behind his ears, and leans into your hand while being pet.

Charlie can be adopted as a single or paired with another laid-back kitty. He has been introduced to dogs, and after a few days, he was fine being around them. So, a home with a calm dog would be fine, too. Charlie is great for adults and kids of all ages.

Charlie came into SPCA's care from a local shelter.

Chester & Charlie
These kitties are sweet.
CHESTER & CHARLIE are sweet, adorable kittens with different, but compatible personalities who need to be adopted as a pair. They love to follow their foster family around and get into as much adorable kitten trouble as possible. These kittens sleep beside you and even give kisses!

CHESTER is a sweet boy who has really come out of his shell. The kitten who at one time didn't want to even be looked at, now sleeps beside his human friends on the couch. And now has the loudest purr you have ever heard. Chester needs to know where his sister is at all times, meowing loudly for her when he can't find her.

CHARLIE loves to play! She carries a toy mouse in her mouth and plays fetch with you. Charlie is very adventurous, does''t have the word can't (or shouldn't!) in her vocabulary. She follows you all over the house just to make sure you're not doing something fun without her.

These kittens do great with adults cats and older children, but are shy of dogs. They rub up again their big feline foster brother, Ozzy, and love to stalk his tail. They are very comfortable with older quiet children, but younger ones who can get a little loud sometimes startle them. They can be a little shy with strangers, but once they get to know you they love their human buddies. 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 kittens came into our care, along with their siblings Chester and Charlie (posted separately), after being rescued as tiny babies outdoors.

Coco & Maize
These girls are teenagers now - we'll add new photos soon.
COCO & MAIZE are sweet, playful girls 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 kittens 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.

Cookie - Adoption Pending!
Cookie is a very special girl!
COOKIE is a cute, petite girl who likes to talk, talk, talk! She is extremely affectionate, loves a warm lap, a soft blanket on the corner of the couch or bed, and to be a part of the action in her foster home.

Cookie is fine with both children and adults, and any activity level in the home. We have not seen Cookie with a dog, but we suspect that a very laid-back, cat-friendly dog would probably be ok in the her forever home. Cookie can be adopted as an only kitty or into a home with another laid-back kitty or two.

By looking at Cookie, you would never know that she has already used up one or more of her nine lives. After coming into SPCA's care while getting spayed, the vet noticed that one of her back legs wouldn't stretch out all the way. An xray revealed that Cookie had recovered from 3 cracks in her pelvis, along with a fractured femoral head in her back leg. These injuries suggest she was probably hit by a car, and one can only imagine how Cookie survived outdoors without receiving medical attention. This sweet girl is clearly a survivor!

Cookie has no outward signs of discomfort or injury, but she may develop arthritis when she is older. Because of this, SPCA is waiving her adoption fee and focusing on finding the right forever home for this sweet girl.

Cookie came into SPCA's care from a local pizzeria where a large number of friendly cats had turned up over the last year. SPCA partnered with 3 other local rescue groups to find new homes for the friendly kitties, while another rescue focused on spaying/neutering those kitties who were determined to be too feral for adoption.

Note: SPCA is waiving Cookie's adoption fee due to her potential to develop arthritis when she's an older kitty.

Cupid & Luna
These teenagers LOVE kids and dogs!
CUPID & LUNA are friendly, rambunctious teenagers 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 kitties 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 kitties.

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.

Evian
This girl is sweet and petite!
EVIAN is an easy-going, low-key, nice kitty who enjoys being with people. She is good at keeping herself occupied when no one is around. Evian loves to bird watch out the window, play with crinkle balls and follow a string dragged across the floor by her foster family's daughter.

This girl does well with the kids in her foster home, but prefers to be the only pet in the household. So a forever home without another cat or dog will be the perfect home for this girl.

Evian came into the SPCA's care as a very pregnant, young mother-to-be. Now that all of her kittens have been adopted, it's time for Evian to find her forever home, too.

George & James
These boys are not only adorable, but friendly and loving too!
GEORGE WASHINGTON & JAMES MADISON are friendly, loving brothers who are as playful as they are sweet-hearted. They are a bonded pair and need to be adopted together.

GEORGE (black/white tuxedo, white mustache) is an outgoing fellow who loves to play! When he has worn himself out, he likes nothing better than to fall asleep on your lap and purr. If you have a friend who believes that cats are aloof and shy, George will be the one to change their mind. He is a true "people cat!"

JAMES (Siamese-mix) has really won the lottery in the looks department! With classic gray and cream Siamese markings and that sweet little white stripe down his nose, James really stands out in his litter. But James is more than just a pretty face! He is a real love bug who purrs at the slightest touch and loves a good nap on your lap. Fearless and playful, James cheerfully lets kids carry him around and is ok with the foster's dog licking his head!

These boys are very active and need a home with a family with kids. They have been exposed to dogs and do great with them as well so if you have a cat-friendly dog in your home, these boys would love to have a canine buddy. They have been around other cats and are fine with them as long as the cat is energetic and wants to join in their rambunctious play.

George and James came into our care as tiny kittens along with their brothers, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson (posted separately). They were rescued outside a local pizza parlor with several other cats and kittens.

Georgie
Georgie is a sweetheart!
GEORGIE is a sweet, affectionate, mellow kitty who also has a playful side. You can check off all the boxes for a perfect personality!

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.

Hocus Pocus
This amazing girl is a sweetheart!
HOCUS POCUS is a lovable little gem of a cat. She is sweet and affectionate, playful and friendly. She settles right away into a new home and is at ease with everyone she meets.

Hocus Pocus has a jet black coat and beautiful green eyes. She loves to follow you around the house, sit in your lap and snuggle up at bedtime. And if that isn't enough affection for you...she also likes to wake you up in the morning by nuzzling your face.

This sweet girl is also very playful. After 'raising' her six kittens, she is as lively as ever. We have not seen Hocus Pocus interact with other cats or dogs, so we don't know how she would do with either. She seems happy as an only kitty as long as long as she gets plenty of attention. She would do great with a couple or a family with kids to keep her company.

Hocus Pocus came into our care from a local shelter when her kittens were about 4 weeks of age. Now that her kittens have been adopted, it's her turn to find that loving forever home she wants and deserves.

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 loves people!
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 is a curious cat who likes to watch what you are up to and explore new spaces. He is also a 'social eater' who sometimes waits to eat until you sit or stand next to him. Jackson also likes to have a choice on where he sleeps at night - sometimes on your bed, sometimes in another part of your home.

Jackson needs a home where his human buddies are around to give him attention. He needs either a couple or a family with older kids who are around at least part of the day (who either work from home at least part of the week, or where kids are home after school). He needs more people interaction than what a single person or couple could provide where they work outside of the home every work day.

We recently introduced a young cat, Pumpkin (posted separately), to Jackson's foster home to help us determine if Jackson needs a feline buddy. Jackson was a little cautious at first and it took him a little while to adapt to Pumpkin. He is doing pretty well with his new buddy - the boys do chase each other around a bit, but Pumpkin is a little too playful for Jackson.

We think Jackson would do fine in a home with a low-key, friendly cat. But he doesn't necessarily need a feline buddy as long as his forever home has people around to keep him company. His home also needs to be quiet to moderately active to suit 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 took it upon himself to make sure Jackson found his way into our care.

John & Thomas
These boys are every bit as friendly and loving as their brothers!
JOHN ADAMS & THOMAS JEFFERSON are friendly, loving brothers who are as playful as they are sweet-hearted. They are a bonded pair and need to be adopted together.

JOHN (brown tabby) is a little tabby with a big heart and a sweet disposition. The quietest of his litter, John loves to sit in your lap and sometimes hangs back when his more outgoing brother charges ahead. But don't let this fool you - John loves to race around and play with his brother, Thomas. John is a handsome brown tabby with bold markings.

THOMAS (black/white tuxedo) started out as the shyest kitten in his litter. But with a little patience and love, he has become the biggest love bug! Thomas purrs if you even look at him, and meows at the door if you leave him alone. A truly great lap snuggler, Thomas makes a wonderful companion for your whole family. This little tuxedo will win your heart!

These boys are very active and need a home with a family with kids. They have been exposed to dogs and do great with them as well so if you have a cat-friendly dog in your home, these boys would love to have a canine buddy. They have been around other cats and are fine with them as long as the cat is energetic and wants to join in their rambunctious play.

John and Thomas came into our care as tiny kittens along with their brothers, George Washington and James Madison (posted separately). They were rescued outside a local pizza parlor with several other cats and kittens.

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 truly wonderful kitties!
MAGGIE & MISTY are just about everything you could want in kitty companions! They are friendly, playful and loving. They adore each other and do great with adults and kids of all ages.

The girls are very friendly and love meeting their human family at the door when they get home from work. They are very vocal with their greetings and love to be acknowledged with petting and scratches on their heads. They also love sitting in your lap, and sleep and cuddle with you at night.

Maggie and Misty are both very curious and like investigating everything - hoping to find something new to get into! They are inquisitive about looking out the windows and watching people and birds outdoors. The girls also love to play, wrestle and chase each other, and go after anything that moves. The girls are also very loving towards each other, always grooming each other and sometimes sleeping together.

These girls came into our care as kittens. Unfortunately, family members in their adoptive home are allergic to them so we are looking for a new loving home for the girls to call their own.

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.

Orange Crush
Orange Crush is a young adult cat now - these are kitten photos. We will post updated photos soon.
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.

Polly & Pita
We need a foster home, or forever home, by June 29th!
POLLY & PITA are bonded sisters that need to be adopted together. They are very sweet, well-mannered, and big-hearted kitties.

POLLY (brown/white tabby) is more outgoing than her sister, Pita. She likes to 'talk' to you and keeps the conversation going if you meow 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) is the shy one, but comes out of her shell once she feels she can trust you. She likes her quiet time and her favorite thing is to burrow under the covers for a nap. Sometimes Pita gets too comfortable and you have to entice her out...a good head scratch usually does the trick. Once Pita feels safe and secure, she is very affectionate - rubbing against you and following you around.

At night, both girls curl up in bed with you and cuddle next to your legs at the foot of the bed. When Pita is being petted, she purrs like a little motor and Polly likes to roll over on her back for tummy rubs.

These loving, heart-warming sisters were sadly abandoned by their adopter who adopted them from us as kittens. We can only imagine how traumatizing this has been to suddenly lose their home, especially for Pita. However, with a quiet home and patient caretaker, both girls have responded beautifully. So far, Polly and Pita have been very picky eaters and grazers. But based on their size, both are overweight, they were obviously overfed and not given a healthy diet. We are working on getting them both to a healthy weight which will take a little time.

Their current foster mom can only keep them until June 29th, so they need a new foster or forever home before them. If you have the right home for these girls, please consider giving them at least a temporary safe haven until we find the right forever home for them.

Pumpkin
Pumpkin is an absolute sweetheart!
PUMPKIN is a very friendly, people-oriented young cat. He LOVES people and craves getting attention. Pumpkin likes to sit in your lap, or lay next to you on a couch or in bed - purring loudly.

This friendly boy is also VERY playful and needs an energetic kitty friend. He is also good at entertaining himself by exploring and playing with toys. Pumpkin is also verbal and often walks around chirping and talking.

Pumpkin isn't phased by other cats. When introduced to another cat, he's curious, doesn't hiss and doesn't even react if they hiss at him! We recently moved Pumpkin into Jackson's foster home (posted separately). True to Pumpkin's nature, he didn't bat an eye when he saw Jackson and immediately wanted to be friends. Pumpkin is a bit too rambunctious for Jackson, so we need a forever home for him that already has a young, playful male cat.

Pumpkin needs a home that also has kids to keep him entertained. We haven't seen him interact with dogs but he would probably do fine with a cat-friendly dog.

Pumpkin was a stray kitty who showed up at the home/private kennel of the SPCA NOVA person who boards our dogs.

Ranger, Valor & Sarge
RANGER, VALOR & SARGE make a great team. They are sweet and work really well together. Lots of adventures awaiting this team! They need to be adopted with a compatible sibling, with another SPCA kitten or into a home with a compatible kitty friend.

RANGER (orange tabby) is a big softie! He gives kisses (licks you) and purrs like it's his job! He has also mastered the art of playing, and loves cuddling with his people and his brothers.

VALOR (grey/white) is the leader of the pack! He likes to run the show even though he's the smallest of the three brothers. If Valor sees anyone playing without him he usually gets involved quickly. He also loves 'fetching' things for us.

SARGE (orange tabby) is a quiet kind of guy. He likes down time and cuddling in a nook... unless his brothers are around! Sarge is curious but also cautious and is very loving and really great with older kids.

These boys came into our care from a local shelter.

Samuel
This boy is very active!
SAMUEL is an adorable kitten with lots of spunk! He loves to zoom around his foster home and keep his foster family entertained. He is a curious boy with a personable demeanor and a nice purr motor.

Samuel has been paired up with Luke, of the Star Wars kittens. He can be adopted with Luke or another compatible, active kitty companion. Samuel is great with kids, adult cats and dogs. He will do well in any type of forever home where he will have plenty of room to zoom around.

Samuel came into the SPCA's care along with other cats and kittens who were living outside of a local pizza parlor.

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.

Tinkerbell
Tinkerbell is a sweetheart!
TINKERBELL is a confident girl who knows how to win over anyone who gives her attention. She loves to be doted on, rubbed around her cheeks, and enjoys being brushed. She had a small matt of fur that was shaved when SPCA took her into our care, and she made biscuits in the air while on her back being shaved. Wow, what a sweet and entertaining girl!

Tinkerbell needs a home where she will get plenty of people time. She is currently in a foster home without other animals and seems happy as an only kitty. Since we have not seen her interact with other animal, we don't know if she would appreciate other cats or dogs. Because she is so friendly and confident, we think it's likely she would be fine with like-minded, low-key animals as long as she is treated like a Queen.

Tinkerbell came into the SPCA's care after the death of her caretaker. She appears to have been well taken care of and loved in her prior home.

Twiggy
This girl is sweet!
TWIGGY is a sweet, friendly kitten who was born in SPCA's care along with her siblings (adopted!). She is very well socialized toward people and much loved by her foster family!

Twiggy is a momma's girl. She is playful and loves to wrestle with her mom, Evian, and siblings. Twiggy is a confident, sweet-natured girl who enjoys running after a string led by the young girl in her foster home. Twiggy can be adopted with her mother, Evian (to be posted separately), or into a home with another like-minded female kitten.

Evian, the mom cat, came into our care from a local shelter pregnant and ready to have kittens!

Xia & Xander
These kittens need an active household with kids!
XIA & XANDER (bobtail!) are a sister/brother bonded pair who are very outgoing and purr whenever they think you will give them attention.

They are very active, and enjoy the constant commotion in their active foster home that includes a young, active golden retriever. They greet everyone and wrap themselves around your legs for attention. They love to zoom after each other in their foster home, chase ping pong balls, and try to catch the wagging tail of the golden retriever.

Xia & Xander need a forever home with lots of activity, and a single family house or town home with space for them to zoom around. They are very comfortable with other felines and cat-friendly dogs, too.
