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).

Abby
ABBY is a laid-back and gentle kitty with a very loud purr motor.

She likes to play with her foster family if the toy isn't too active, and prefers to watch the action from a warm, comfortable spot.

Abby needs gentle, like-minded adult kitty company. She also needs a quiet to moderately active home.

This sweet girl came into our care from a local shelter.

Ahsoka, Sabine & Zeb
Meet the Star Wars kittens!
AHSOKA, SABINE & ZEB are friendly, playful and curious Star Wars kittens. They like to follow each other around their foster home and are seldom far away from one another. Although they are full of energy during play time, at night they are eager to curl up next to their foster family to snuggle. They also LOVE playing with the resident bunny!

AHSOKA (black, female) is a petite girl, smaller than the other two. But this doesn't keep her from play-fighting or running around with her feline buddies. She has one white whisker on her otherwise black face. Her foster mom says Ahsoka is the smartest of the group - thinking through her options before acting. She also loves snuggling up next to you at night. Ahsoka needs to be adopted either with Sabine, or into a home with another SPCA kitty or that has a compatible resident cat.

SABINE (calico, female) loves to curl up in the sink. She also purrs loudly as soon as you pick her up. Her foster mom says Sabine doesn't give much thought to her actions - springing into action based on impulse like many kittens. Sabine needs to be adopted with one of her buddies.

Zeb (black, male) absolutely LOVES playing with the resident bunny almost as much as his feline buddies. He has a loud purr motor and likes being held. Zeb needs to be adopted either with Sabine, or into a home with another SPCA kitty or that has a compatible resident cat.

These kittens came into our care from a local shelter. Sabine and Zeb are siblings, and Ashoka came into the shelter separately but was placed with them for companionship.

Ash, Rocco & Otis - Adoption Pending!
These boys will keep you on your toes!
ASH, ROCCO & OTIS (all adoption pending!) are typical boys - very active! They keep each other entertained for hours - playing with toys and chasing and tackling each other. When they are done playing, they look for the nearest human to snuggle up with. Nothing like having three kitties pile on top of you!

ASH (brown/white tabby - more white on his face) (Adoption Pending!) is nearly an identical twin to Rocco! Ash is most likely to be the first one to jump into your lap after he's done playing. He loves snuggling after he's finished with a busy day of hunting toy prey and chasing and tacking his brothers. Ash needs to be adopted with his brother Otis.

ROCCO (brown/white tabby - freckle on his nose) (Adoption pending!) is the explorer. While all of the boys love to explore, Rocco is usually the first one to engage in 'jail-breaking' - darting up the stairs to the rest of the house when his large 'kitten room' basement door is opened up. While he is the smallest of the brothers, this doesn't hold him back! And he is usually second in line for snuggling when play-time is over.

OTIS (brown tabby) (Adoption pending!) will break your heart. He is the biggest boy in the litter and has the cutest little meow that he uses to let you know he needs something. Like more food or more loving! Otis looks into your eyes and gives you that cute little meow - often a silent meow. Otis also likes to compete for the best snuggling position on your lap but when there's no more room he seems happy to snuggle up by your side. Otis needs to be adopted with his brother Ash.

These boys came into our care with their three siblings (Bobbi, Charlie, and Hector) from someone's home who had rescued their mom from a neglectful situation. These kittens had early socialization with this family with three kids so they are all extremely people-oriented. These boys are truly amazing - a nice balance between playfulness and longing for human love and affection.

Betsy
BETSY is very active and curious. She is always exploring and ready to play. Betsy needs to be paired up with a like-minded active kitty friend.

Like many kittens, Betsy isn't a snuggle bug, but she is very friendly and plays with you until your arm gets tired. She needs an active household with people and another kitty or two to play with.

Charlie
Charlie is a big teddy bear!
CHARLIE is a big, fluffy boy who absolutely adores people. His foster mom says Charlie is the only cat she has ever met who willingly turns down treats, playtime and toys for pure snuggles and love. His number one priority is cuddling his humans! This sweet boy has a calm, gentle demeanor. He likes being petted, especially getting his cheeks rubbed.

Charlie adjusted quickly to his foster home. He began exploring right away and it took him no time to join his foster parents as part of his new family. This big boy also likes to talk but not excessively and has a quiet, high-pitched little meow that comes out when he wants dinner, is ready to play or just straight up wants attention!

And, Charlie purrs CONSTANTLY. The only time his foster mom notices he's not purring is when he's sleeping. Charlie also goes nuts over the laser pointer. He goes into full-on hunter mode - making a little chirping noises, wiggling his bottom and pouncing on the dot. He also loves his cardboard scratching board, cat-nip toys and a feathered ball that he bats around and throws up in the air.

Charlie needs to be the only cat in the household. He will also do best without a dog although he has shown us that he is ok with a calm, gentle dog. What Charlie needs most is lots of people attention. A family with kids or a couple who is around home a lot would be best for him.

Charlie was adopted out with his sister, Dee, when he was a kitten. Sadly, his adopters didn't take adoption as a life-long commitment seriously and abandoned Charlie and Dee when they had a baby. Hard to believe anyone would give up this pure bundle of love!

Christina - Adoption Pending!
CHRISTINA loves attention and prefers to have it all to herself. She has a very loud purr motor and loves to play and chase anything that moves, especially the nerf balls her foster family's boys like to shoot all over the basement.

This friendly girl needs to be the only kitty in an active home environment where she will receive plenty of attention.

Connor & Frankie
These GIRLS will warm your heart!
CONNOR & FRANKIE are adorable sisters with super soft fur. They are friendly and playful and love interacting with people.

These girls enjoy romping, wrestling and chasing each other, and are very good at entertaining themselves. And while they are playful, they are not overly rambunctious. When they are done playing, they like to snuggle up on top of their big cat tree or visit with their foster mom.

Both girls are very people-friendly and run to greet you when you walk in their room. They have big purr motors. Frankie purrs as soon as she sees you and has the most adorable silent-meow. They both like to cuddle up with their foster mom, especially Frankie. She looks into your eyes when cuddling to let you know how much she likes to be loved. You need to meet these sisters to see just how cute they are.

These girls need a quiet to moderately active home. They came into our care with their siblings (Mischa & Rocky - adopted!) from a local shelter with their mom.

Cupid & Luna
These kittens have gorgeous blue-grey coats of fur.
CUPID & LUNA are amazing kittens! They are a bonded pair who must be adopted together. These kittens are rambunctious and need a VERY active home with multiple OLDER kids (at least 6 years of age but possibly a bit older) and other young and active cats or dogs 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. She comes when she hears her name, and meows when she wants to find her foster mom. Luna knows her foster mom will always give her plenty of affection! Luna likes to sleep under blankets and she is an acrobat when climbing on the cat tree.

Cupid and Luna need an active household that will keep them entertained 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.

Ember
Ember is a sweetheart!
EMBER is a very sweet and gentle cat. She has amazing spurts of energy and plays soccer with her toys around the house, yet she also has a calm demeanor. Ember enjoys attention from people and does great with kids, but does not demand attention. When you pick her up, Ember leans into you and purrs softly. She also likes to stalk, pounce and play with toys.

Ember has done fine with some kittens in her foster home, but not others. So its best for her to be the only kitty in the household. Ember is ok with the dog in her foster home but doesn't interact with him much. She does better with two legged company!

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 and Ember needs one too! Ember is a joy to care for and be around.

Garfield & Jon
These boys adore each other!
GARFIELD & JON are fun, playful and affectionate kitties. They are a bonded pair and need to be adopted together.

These boys love chasing and wrestling with each other, playing with toys and racing through their crinkly kitty tunnel. They also like climbing to the top of their cat tree to look out the window and play king of the hill. They have wonderful purr motors and sleep next to each other or on your lap when play-time is over.

GARFIELD has a typical orange tabby personality - both active 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 looks for his foster parents when he wants to be picked up and held.

JON is a tiny bit more independent and reserved than Garfield. It will take Jon a day or two to settle into a new environment, but once he does, Jon is right there with his brother looking for play-time and people-time. Jon especially likes to play with tiny furry mice and loves giving you head-butts.

These boys came into our care from a local shelter with their siblings (Pookie, Odie, Squeak & Nermal - adopted!).

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.

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: 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.

Katherine & Mason - Adoption Pending!
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.

Lucille
Lucille is sweet, sweet, sweet!
LUCILLE is a super sweet, affectionate lap cat. She gets along well with the other cats in her foster home and enjoys the company of dogs, large and small, too. Lucille is moderately active and likes to play chase with the resident cats, swat at wagging dog tails and bathe in the sunshine streams into the house.

Lucille needs a home with another like-minded feline companion. Dogs are fine as well. She will do well in any activity level in the home. While we haven't seen Lucille interact with children, we suspect she'd be fine with them, too.

Lucille came into SPCA's care after a Good Samaritan found her along the side of a road with a broken leg. After surgery and months of healing, Lucille is fully recovered with no foreseeable issues in the future. This sweet girl is now ready for her forever home.

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!

Mohawk
MOHAWK is a confident, affectionate and handsome boy who LOVES, LOVES, LOVES dogs.

Mohawk's pals include a cat-friendly Goldendoodle and a Scotty. He also respects the older Golden Retriever, too. Mohawk is very fond of chasing and being chased, and plays with the Scotty as if he were a cat by sneaking up and pouncing on him.

Mohawk enjoys his foster parents' company. He has a nice purr motor and is comfortable with everyone he meets.

Mohawk needs a forever home with cat-friendly dogs. A like-minded, active male cat would be fine, too. Mohawk enjoys an active household to keep him entertained, and a place where he will receive plenty of attention.

Mohawk came into SPCA's care from a local shelter as a young kitten with his siblings (all adopted). He has been under the care of an internal medicine veterinarian for an intestional virus. He is now FULLY recovered and ready for a forever home of his own. Mohawk is sensitive to food changes and MUST stay on his current high quality, limited ingredient food. This will ensure he stays the healthy and happy kitty he is today!

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.

Orange Crush
This boy is sweet!
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 acts a bit like a dog - he 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, cats and dogs in his foster home. He needs another like-minded feline buddy in his forever home to bond and play with.

Paisley
This calico girl is a beauty!
PAISLEY is a friendly, playful girl. While she initially did well with her sister, Penny, when she was younger, Paisley has shown us she wants to be a princess in their own home!

Paisley is one of a kind. When her foster mom first sees her in the morning, Paisley stands on her 2 hind legs to get attention and affection. She is vibrant in play and loyal in love. Paisley purrs nonstop and is never far away from the foster family.

Paisley is great with kids and will do well in a home with a family. She came into our care with her siblings - Penny (posted separately) and other siblings (adopted) from a local shelter.

PENNY is a friendly, playful girl. While she initially did well with her sister, Paisley, when she was younger, Penny has shown us she wants to be a princess in their own home!

Penny is very active and loves playing the game of hide and seek. Always the adventurer, she is constantly seeking out new ways to reach something that has been placed out of her reach. Kitten proofing is needed in her forever home! When Penny slows down, she is very loving and purrs when given the slightest bit of attention.

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.

Quiggley
Quiggley is sweet and full of energy!
QUIGGLEY has a sweet disposition! He responds to his foster mom calling his name by racing over to her & doing figure eights between her legs.

Quiggley has a nice purr motor, gives kitty kisses and has bunny-soft fur. This sweet boy is a busy kitty and doesn't sit still for long, but is always around to watch the action. He occasionally leaps onto his foster mom's lap for a nap and has found his spot on the edge of the bed at night.

Quiggley will be happiest in a multi-cat household where the resident cats will play with him and show him the ropes. He is best suited for a quieter home with loving, patient caretakers. Quiggley has been exposed to various cat-friendly dogs and they make him nervous, so a home without dogs is needed.

Quiggley came into the SPCA's care as an orphaned kitten with a badly damaged tail. He survived the ordeal but his tail had to be amputated. He is ready to join a friendly, multi-cat household where he can continue to build his confidence level by learning from new cat friends.

Ruby Tuesday
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!

Shawna & Stephanie
Meet the twins!
SHAWNA & STEPHANIE are absolutely stunning girls. They are nearly identical in looks, but have slightly different personalities. They have soft fluffy coats which are perfect for petting.

These girls have a very calm, gentle demeanor. They are very sweet and like to hang out with their foster family. They do play with toys but are pretty low-key when it comes to play time.

These girls adore each other and are never far apart form one another. Stephanie is a bit more outgoing than her sister - she is the one who takes the lead in exploring their foster home. With her sister, Shawna, following behind her.

Shawna and Stephanie came into our care from a local shelter.

Suzie
Suzie is an absolute sweetheart!
SUZIE is the sweetest kitty! She purrs nonstop in the company of her foster family, and is friendly with everyone she meets. She rubs against your legs, loves getting brushed and carries on conversations, too. Suzie waits patiently on the couch for someone to sit down so she can cuddle up on your lap and snuggle.

Suzie is an excellent companion for anyone who is looking for a super affectionate, low-key girl. She is an FIV positive kitty but is very healthy. With good nutrition and proactive vet care, she is expected to live a nice long life.

Suzie came into SPCA's care after her caretaker passed away unexpectedly. She was found outdoors, living among a feral cat colony, but she clearly prefers live indoors, and has not shown the slightest interest in ever returning outdoors. Suzie is a very lucky girl to have found her way into our care; now we just need to find her a forever home!

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
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.

Tux
Tux is a sweetheart!
TUX is a super sweet kitty who loves head rubs. He is a little shy when first meeting new people, but is quick to warm up to you.

Tux loves to nap in the sunlight and play with toys. He also likes playing with Leo - the big grey tabby cat in his foster home. They spend their days chasing each other around, playing hide & go seek, and snuggling. He loves suppertime and cuddling up on the couch with his foster mom.

Tux needs a playful male feline buddy in his forever home. He also needs a quieter home with a patient caretaker who will help this sweet boy transition to new surroundings. So a home with adults or an older child or two would work well for Tux.

This boy was abandoned outside (displaced by a baby) and brought indoors by a neighbor. He has come a long way from being a shy kitten to being a curious and much more confident kitty. Now safe in our care, Tux is ready for a home of his own.

Twizzler, Snickers & Reeses
TWIZZLER, SNICKERS & REESES are sweet, friendly kittens. They have been exposed to older children, adult cats and cat-friendly dogs.

TWIZZLER (black/white) (Adopted!) is incredibly outgoing, curious and affectionate. He loves to be picked up and snuggled. Twizzler was exposed to feline distemper as a baby kitten and he survived, but he has a slight permanent head tilt which makes him even more adorable. This does not affect him in the least - Twizzler chases, pounces and wrestles like a pro.

SNICKERS (black/white) is an adventurous and sweet girl. She purrs and kneads while being petted in your lap. Snickers is equally happy entertaining herself with a round ball teaser toy.

REESES (black) is an energetic kitten who is a tad bit shy with new experiences. She takes her cues from her siblings. Reeses needs to be adopted with one of her siblings. She gets along great with both Twizzler and Snickers, so either sibling would be a great life-long companion for her.

These kittens came into our care from a local shelter as tiny babies.

Violette
Violette is absolutely stunning - a beautiful little angel!
VIOLETTE (AKA Vee) is a regal ballerina. Her white fur is pristine, and her beautiful different colored eyes (one green, one blue) demand love and attention.

Vee is very adaptable to new situations, active, and extremely loving. She likes sitting by an open window and exploring all the nooks and crannies of her foster home. She is a social butterfly - making new friends is one of her favorite hobbies. Vee greets her foster mom and all her friends at the door with a meow and a head butt, and loves being the center of attention. She loves to be petted, but like most cats, she doesn't like belly rubs.

Vee needs a home with multiple people - either a couple where one person is home a lot (perhaps someone who works from home). Or a family with kids. We have not seen her interact with other cats or dogs. She seems content as the only pet in the household, as long as she gets lots of affection love and affection from people.

Vee came into our care from a local shelter.

Webber
WEBBER is a very social kitty and a fast learner! If you invite him onto your lap, he'll jump up for petting and cuddling. He also likes to be picked up if it means you will pet him!

Webber is a big time talker with the sweetest little meow. He also loves playing with toys and the other cats in his foster home.

Webber needs a home with other young cats or kittens to play with. He's been introduced to dogs and children and does OK with them. But he prefers adult humans and other cats.

This sweet boy came into our care from a local farm.
