Abbot & Molly
These girls are becoming best buddies!
ABBOT & MOLLY are friendly, playful girls. They are not sisters but are becoming fast friends after being introduced to each other in their foster home. They are forming a good bond and we want them adopted together.

ABBOT is an extremely cuddly, affectionate girl. She has a purr as loud as a grown cat, and enjoys cuddling with you. If you are her favorite person, she likes to make certain that the last thing you do before you fall asleep is pet her. Abbot is also very intelligent; she has figured out how to climb up and down the ladder to the top of a bunk bed without any assistance! She is playful but not overly rambunctious, and likes to snuggle.

MOLLY is sweet and friendly. She settles in right away into a new home and is very good at entertaining herself with her toys. Molly also loves hanging out with her human buddies and has been given the nickname 'Monkey.' As you might guess, this is because she loves to climb. Molly will even sit on your shoulders as you are sitting on the couch.

Abbott came into our care with her four brothers (including Calvin and Oscar - shown separately) from a local shelter. Molly was found all by herself on a farm just waiting for someone to rescue her! Now together, these girls need a forever home where they can romp around with each other and enjoy a good, safe life together.

Amethyst, Opal & Pearl
These girls are true gems!
AMETHYST, OPAL & PEARL are people oriented kittens and would be great for active homes with older kids who want interactive kittens. Opal and Pearl must be adopted together, and Amethyst may be adopted with another compatible SPCA kitty or into a home with a like-minded feline. These girls have been exposed to adult cats and would probably be fine with cat-friendly dogs, too.

AMETHYST (orange tabby, female) is very curious and a tad bit opinionated about what she likes to do. She comes for attention and snuggling when she wants to, but is often in full 'play mode' with her sisters and the other resident cats in her foster home. Amethyst is quick to pounce on toy mice and isn't interested in sharing her prize with her siblings. Amethyst has a cute trill when she wants to be noticed and responds to her foster mom calling for her.

OPAL (buff & white, female) & PEARL (buff, female) are a bonded sister pair who always snuggle up with each other during nap time. Opal is an affectionate kitty and Pearl is very talkative. They are both very active, love to zoom around the kitten room in their foster home and sneak up on the feather toy at the top of the kitty condo tower.

These girls came into our care from a home that had too many kitties to care for.

Anderson & Americo
These kittens are typical boys!
ANDERSON & AMERICO are very sweet boys who love people. They are also very active, and love playing with the laser pointer. These brothers are bonded and need to be adopted as a pair.

ANDERSON (buff tabby) is the more adventurous one of this duo, always the first to explore. He also loves to purr up a storm.

AMERICO (orange and white tabby) is little more calm and reserved. He likes to come to you when you sit on the floor when he's not otherwise on the move playing with his brother.

These boys are two of Pella's four kittens along with their sisters, Jamoka and Periwinkle (posted separately). They came into our care from a local shelter.

Anna & Sasha
These sweet girls will charm you!
ANNA & SASHA are the kitty version of the 'Odd Couple.'

ANNA (dilute tortoiseshell) is always looking for some action and loves to play with her furry mice.

SASHA (dilute calico) is sweet and reserved, preferring to do her own thing during the day and get her cuddles at night.

Both girls do well with the older kids and dogs in their foster home. Sasha even has an adorable gray heart on her chest. These girls would love you to let them into your heart!

Anna came into our care with her brothers, Fletcher and Hopscotch (posted separately). Sasha came into our care with her two sisters, Khloe and Raquel (adopted!).

April
April is a big, sweet love-bug!
APRIL is the sweetest kitty anyone could possibly ask for! She loves nothing more than being petted and snuggling with her foster parents. April is also very outgoing and greets guests in her foster home. She likes relaxing on the couch when her foster parents are hanging out or visiting with friends.

Despite her size, April is also quite playful. She goes nuts over a laser pointer which is a great way to get this girl some much needed exercise. April is on a healthy weight reduction diet to ensure she loses weight and remains a healthy kitty. Her forever guardians need to be conscious of her dietary needs.

April needs a quiet to moderately active home as the only pet and no young children. She would probably enjoy the company of older kids who could shower her with affection.

April was adopted out with her sister, Iris (adoption pending!), as kittens. Sadly, their guardian gave them up because a family member was moving in who has allergies to cats. We quickly realized that both April and Iris would do best as only cats. Both girls love being the center of attention and Iris was a bit dominant over April. Now separated, these girls are as happy as can be.

BISCUIT & OZZY
This pair is friendly, entertaining and loving!
BISCUIT & OZZY

While these boys are not littermates, Biscuit and Ozzy quickly bonded as foster brothers. Both are young and playful as well as laid back and genuinely enjoy each other's company. Although they are both FIV positive, Biscuit and Ozzy are both in very good health. You can follow these boys on their own Facebook page: www.facebook.com/sirbiscalot. These buddies need to be adopted as a pair.

BISCUIT is quite the character! His silly, playful antics (including jumping into the shower with his foster mom) keeps her in stitches. He is not a lap cat, but usually sleeps either at the foot of his foster mom's bed or on the floor beside the bed - he likes to be close, but not quite touching. Biscuit loves playing with his toys as well as wrestling with Ozzy. He loves having company over and often runs to the front door to answer when the pizza delivery guy knocks! A bit of a 'tree dweller,' Biscuit also enjoys climbing his kitty shelves or resting halfway up the apartment's spiral staircase, keeping an eye on his 'little brother' below.

OZZY is a little guy with a big purr! A chatty kind of fellow (he'll even sing for his supper), Ozzy loves nothing more than a good cuddle. He gives his foster mom lots and lots of kitty kisses and sleeps curled up against her chest every night. Ozzy enjoys playing with his toys, but also loves a good romp Biscuit. His foster mom often wakes up to the sight of Biscuit and Ozzy quietly wrestling on the floor! Ozzy's foster mom thinks the cutest thing about Ozzy (of which there are many) might be his high-pitched, kitten-like meow and his occasional little 'smirk,' which is actually the result of missing a tooth! You couldn't find a sweeter kitty than this lap cat.

Both boys were stray cats before coming into our care who spent time wandering the streets. They must have had scuffles with other cats where they picked up FIV. Indoor-only FIV positive cats can live long, healthy lives just like other cats as long as their caretakers are proactive about their care. Neither kitty has had any health issues while in our care and are expected to live long lives. To read more about FIV, please see 'Surviving Life on the Streets with FIV' (SPCA's Winter 2014 newsletter).

Note: We waive adoption fees for FIV positive cats like Biscuit and Ozzy.

Calvin & Oscar
These boys are sweet and playful - but gentle too!
CALVIN & OSCAR are the sweetest boys ever! They are bonded and need to be adopted as a pair.

CALVIN (all black) and OSCAR (black/white tuxedo) are sweet, friendly and outgoing little guys who love to play with each other and their foster family. While they love to play with any toy, Calvin especially loves furry mice and Oscar favors a feather wand. They both LOVE jingle balls!

After an active play session, these boys like to curl up together for nap. Both like a good chin scratch and Calvin often falls asleep in his foster family's laps.

These boys came into our care from a local shelter, along with their siblings (Abbot, Carey and Simon - posted separately).

Cappuccino, Machiatto, Espresso & Latte
These babies are beautiful!
CHAI'S KITTENS - CAPPUCCINO, MACHIATTO, ESPRESSO & LATTE

Chai's kittens are cuddly, social and love human attention. They can be paired up with a compatible sibling, another SPCA kitten or into a home with another like-minded young feline.

CAPPUCCINO (Gray/White, Male) (Still Available!) is a gentle lover boy who rubs against his foster mom's legs, and has a loud purr motor for anyone who will give him attention.

MACHIATTO (Gray Tabby, Male) (Adopted!) is the brave adventurer who loves to wrestle and show off his running abilities. He is also a handsome boy we think he knows how handsome he is!

ESPRESSO (Gray/White, Female) (Adopted!) is curious about everything and likes napping in laps. She is happy playing with crinkle balls, and chasing her mom's fluffy tail.

LATTE (Gray Tabby, Female) (Adopted!) is a gentle girl. She is careful and thoughtful and often strikes out ahead of the others to explore new territories.

These kittens have been exposed to children and adult cats. While they haven't been exposed to dogs, a very laid-back, cat-friendly dog would probably be fine in their forever home, too.

Their mom, Chai, came into SPCA's care from a local family who had too many cats. Shortly after coming into our care, Chai gave birth to these beautiful babies.

Cha Cha
This cute tabby girl will charm you!
CHA CHA is a super sweet, gentle kitten. She loves being petted and getting a chin rub. She will reward you with a very loud purrrrr!

Cha Cha needs to be adopted along with a like-minded SPCA female kitten or into a home with a gentle female kitty to bond and play with. Cha Cha's siblings have been adopted but she is being fostered with other kittens so has plenty of buddies to play with who are candidates to pair up with her for adoption.

Cha Cha came into our care, along with her siblings (Boogie Woogie, Jitterbug & Tango - adopted!), from a local shelter with their mom, Calypso (posted separately).

Chester
Chester is an amazing kitty!
CHESTER is a handsome, smart, fun-loving young cat. He really enjoys playing with cat toys or hanging out with his feline foster brother. Chester is also very curious and likes to follow his foster mom from room to room to see what's going on.

Chester's other favorite past time is snuggling onto a nice warm lap. He may be a little shy when meeting a new visitor but quickly becomes your friend forever as soon as your lap is available. Chester is also a big boy - weighing about 13 pounds.

Chester likes to talk, especially when he's hungry or greeting you back into your home from a long day at work. He loves other cats, especially male cats which he bonds with right away. His forever home must have a compatible male kitty for Chester to bond and play with. He is getting use to the dog in his foster home so a home with a cat-friendly dog could work out.

Chester was a stray kitty who showed up one evening at someone's back door - asking for a meal! He's a lucky kitty that this home has become his foster home. This adorable, tall and friendly kitty with big beautiful eyes is just waiting for you to offer him the forever family he's looking for!

Chip, Klondike & Coco
These kittens will entertain you!
CHIP, KLONDIKE & COCO

This trio came from a local farm where a TNR project led by another rescue organization found these babies at 5 weeks of age. They were transferred to SPCA for socialization and care. They have been fostered in an active home with older children, and all are very charming.

CHIP (male, black/white short-haired) is a friendly boy with lots of energy. He loves to explore new surroundings and is curious about everyone and everything. Chip can entertain himself for hours with a basket of kitty toys, and loves to climb on the foster home's cat tree.

KLONDIKE (female, black/white, medium-haired)is a snuggly girl kitten with a laid back personality. She has her bursts of energy, but she is usually in a relaxed state of mind. Klondike is very content to be held, sleep on your lap, and watch her siblings play king of the cat tree. She needs to be paired up with another like-minded, laid back kitty.

COCO (female, black/white, short-haired) is a social, talkative girl. She loves to tell her foster family about her adventures. She even talks to her toys and her siblings when she gets separated from the others. Coco has an energetic disposition, and would be a good companion for an active, like-minded female.

These kittens have been exposed to adult cats, a small dog and older children, and would be comfortable in any type of forever home.

Chipmunk
Chipmunk is a handsome tabby tuxedo!
CHIPMUNK is a very friendly boy who likes people and other like-minded kitties. He is moderately playful and likes to settle in for nice naps in a ray of sunshine streaming through a window.

Chipmunk does not like a lot of commotion so a forever home that is quiet to moderately active will keep this friendly boy happy.

Chipmunk came into our care from a local shelter along with another cat named Mouse (adopted!). Mouse and Chipmunk got along but weren't that bonded so we were happy when a forever home came long for Mouse. Now it's Chipmunk's turn to find that special home.

Delight
This girl LOVES to play, play and play!
DELIGHT (aka Lila or Lil Bit) is a VERY playful girl. She is very good at entertaining herself with toys, but also likes to play 'hide and seek' with you and play chase with the adult cat in her foster home. Delight is also fascinated with water; she likes to jump into the bathtub right after you shower and play with a dripping faucet.

Delight also likes being petted and purrs readily. She likes to burrow under blankets and sleep behind you on the couch. Delight will also nap in her foster mom's lap. She likes to rub against your legs when you are standing to let you know she wants attention. Delight also likes to sit next to the computer, and play with the mouse on the screen, when her foster mom is working her computer.

Delight needs a forever home with another playful kitty. We have not seen her interact with kids, but older kids would most likely be fine.

Delight came into our care with her mom from a local shelter.

Duke & Ziggy
These boys are sweet and loving!
DUKE & ZIGGY

While not biologically brothers, Duke and Ziggy have lived together almost their entire lives and need to be adopted together. These boys are a playful pair who love to have a good time. They are often chasing each other or wrestling.

DUKE (buff tabby) is initially shy but every bit as affectionate as Ziggy. He may seem skittish at first, but it won't take him long to warm up to you. He loves to sleep in a place where he can see the room and take it all in. Duke is a curious boy who likes to explore so he can get comfortable with his surroundings. He also loves belly rubs and often kneads the air while he gets his massage.

ZIGGY (orange/white tabby) is an energetic cat who has a great time chasing a laser pointer. He also likes to play kitty soccer with a toy or sock. He's very entertaining as he kicks his toys back and forth across a room. While he has a great time playing, Ziggy also loves to cuddle and purrs for hours if he has a lap to lie on. He loves to snuggle up for a belly rub and nap with his guardians for as long as you let him.

Ziggy and Duke do well with kids of all ages, as they are very gentle cats. Ziggy often lets toddlers pet him and responds with a loving headbutt. Duke may not let kids pet him, but he is happily spend time in the room while kids are around.

These boys came into SPCA's care initially as kitten separately but were fostered and adopted out together as 6 month old kittens. Their family recently learned their new baby is allergic to cats so we are looking for a new home for the boys where they will be as loved and cherished as they have been for the past 6 years.

Elvis & Floyd
Meet the singer kittens!
ELVIS & FLOYD are friendly boys who came into our care with their siblings Louis, Reba and Michael (adopted!). These boys can be adopted together, with another compatible SPCA kitten or into a home with a like-minded young feline.

ELVIS is the king! This tabby boy is fun and energetic. He plays hard, but never misses the opportunity for a belly rub. With a loud purr motor, his foster mom thinks Elvis is irresistible.

FLOYD has a sweet disposition and likes to play and nap with his brother. He enjoys a good round of chase with his brother before cuddling with him or his foster family.

This little family came into our care from a local shelter. Their siblings Michael, Louis and Reba have been adopted!

Emmy & Grammy
These girls love each other and other friendly cats
EMMY & GRAMMY are sweet sisters who love each other as well as other friendly cats. They were rescued by SPCA as kittens and have been overlooked for adoption because they are shy toward people other than their foster family. These girls hang out and sleep together and would LOVE to find a quiet home to enjoy their lives together. Spending good weather days out on their 2nd story deck is one of their favorite things, often lying on their backs, sunbathing and loving life.

EMMY loves cuddling up with her sister Grammy for nice long naps. And she enjoys the company of other friendly cats, playing and hanging out with them. On nice warm days, she truly enjoys lounging on her foster family's 2nd story deck. Emmy is the last to come in from the deck on summer evenings and often has to be 'persuaded' to come in.

GRAMMY loves being with other cats as well. She is shy with people other than her foster family. Grammy loves awaiting her canned food treat each morning and evening...rubbing up against her foster mom then stretching up toward the counter on her hind legs to get a good look at her treat!

These girls need a quiet home with a patient caretaker who will give them time to adapt to new surroundings. They would do well with another friendly, low-key cat to keep them company.

Friskies & Blue Buffalo
These boys will love you and entertain you!
FRISKIES & BLUE BUFFALO are loving, playful brothers. They greet you at the door, run to you when called and like being picked up and cuddled. They are also VERY rambunctious - chasing and pouncing on each other and entertaining themselves with toys. These boys are best buddies and need to be adopted together.

FRISKIES looks like he's dressed up for a party - with a grey tuxedo, a white shirt and a white tipped tail. He is shy at first with new people and in new surroundings, but once Friskies is comfortable he's playful and loving with people. He plays with anything he can bat around - whether it's moving or not! Friskies is also a lovebug - he cries to be picked up and cuddled, plops himself down at your feet and rolls around to expose his belly for a nice belly rub, and adores getting hugs and kisses.

BLUE BUFFALO has beautiful blue-grey fur. He greets everyone with the same cute look on his face that says 'pet me, pet me.' But don't let his sweet demeanor fool you - when he's done getting some loving, Blue is ready to pounce on a toy or chase his brother until they tucker out. Blue is also a fearless explorer who is very curious and settles in right away with new people in a new home. When he's not in play mode, Blue loves to be cuddled and held.

Because Friskies is a bit shy with new people and in new surroundings, these boys need a quiet to moderately active home that is not expected to change much over time (e.g., moving; babies, toddlers or young kids; people moving in and out). Their foster family has two kids, a Labrador Retriever and two adult cats. They do great with the kids. Blue LOVES the dog and Friskies has adapted to him so a dog in their forever home is a possibility if the dog is low-key and cat-friendly. The boys will do best without other cats in their forever home unless the cat is a young rambunctious male. They pick on the female cats - not maliciously - they just want to play but are too rambunctious for the girls.

Friskies and Blue came into our care with four of their siblings (Sheba, Fancy Feast, Jelly Belly and Sweet Pea - all adopted!) from a litter of EIGHT kittens! They were rescued by a kind family who found them living under their porch (and kept two of the kittens for themselves!).

Gilbert & Napoleon
These boys are sweet, loving, low-key kitties!
GILBERT & NAPOLEON are very sweet boys who want nothing more than a loving home. They are sweet, affectionate and pretty low-key. These boys are not brothers, but have been together for about 7 years. They are very bonded and we wouldn't dream of separating them!

Both boys get along well with older kids, cats and cat-friendly dogs. They like to be petted and don't mind being picked up and carried around. They also love to roll over for belly rubs. When they are energetic, they love to play with toys and wrestle with and chase each other.

GILBERT has beautiful light green eyes and a plush coat of gray. He is very friendly, outgoing and talkative. Gilbert LOVES to sunbathe, sleep in cat beds, be picked up and get his ears rubbed. He is a talker and always answers when you talk to him. Gilbert also likes to chase his own tail! He comes when you call him and answers to the name 'Gilly.'

NAPOLEON has stunning different colored eyes - one is hazel (brownish-green) and the other is light green. He is very sweet and has a huge motor he turns on when you pet him. Napoleon is also a shy kitty who needs a little time to feel comfortable with new people; once he feels safe, Napoleon is very affectionate. He likes to sleep on the bed with his human caretaker and LOVES to be brushed and petted! Napoleon also likes to chase bouncy balls and answers when you call him 'Polie.'

Gilbert and Napoleon came into our care after their loving caretaker fell on hard times and had to move in with elderly grandparents who are highly allergic to cats. SPCA is happy to help these boys find a new loving home.

Henry & Tommy
These boys are ready for a home of their own!
HENRY & TOMMY are very sweet, affectionate brothers who adore each other's company. They love being petted and purr easily. They are also pretty low-key, especially for young males. These boys enjoy running after the laser and sitting on the windowsill watching squirrels play outside. Once they settle down, they love to cuddle with you on the bed at night.

HENRY is very playful and enjoys everyone's company. He loves to walk over his foster mom's lap and laptop when he wants attention! Henry loves sitting at the top of the stairs waiting for his foster mom to come home and play! Henry has the softest and fluffiest fur and purrs loudly when stretched out for a belly rub. Henry is now on a special prescription diet for crystals in his urine and is doing well. He must stay on this diet indefinitely.

TOMMY is a little shy at first when meeting new people, but once he is comfortable he loves to be petted and 'talks' to you when he wants attention. Although Tommy is bigger than Henry, he is more low-key and likes to groom his brother while they lounge on the couch. Tommy is not eating his brother's prescription diet and is fed separately.

These boys were rescued along with their sister as from outdoors by a kind young woman. Henry and Tommy need a relatively quiet home to moderately active home together.

We have waived Henry's adoption fee since he is special needs and is on special food.

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 judges 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.

Jamoka & Periwinkle
Yes, these girls are sisters!
JAMOKA & PERIWINKLE are adorable sisters who look nothing alike! They are great buddies and need to be adopted as a pair.

Jamoka (brown/white tabby) and Periwinkle (black/white tuxedo) are, of course, playful as all kittens are. But they also love to be petted. Periwinkle in particular loves to cuddle and purr.

The girls just discovered the window in their new foster home and have been fascinated by the birds, squirrels and chipmunks outdoors. Their foster mom says they have great litter box habits and love scratching on their scratching post. She says they are very well-behaved little ladies.

These girls are two of Pella's four kittens along with their brothers, Americo and Anderson (posted separately). Pella will be posted soon. They came into our care from a local shelter.

This sweet girl is happy to be off the streets!
KIT KAT is a very friendly, young kitty who settles in right away. She is curious and when exploring a new place likes to check out everything! Kit Kat likes to be petted and hang out with her foster mom to keep her company.

We have not seen Kit Kat interact with other cats or dogs but think she will likely do well with either cats or dogs. Or she seems happy enough as an only kitty as she is in her foster home. We are getting to know her personality and will post more soon.

Kit Kat was found outdoors skinny and hungry when she was only about 5 months old. We don't know how she ended up outdoors, but she was lucky to have found her way into a cat-lover's home for safe keeping. Kit Kat was spayed at the Washington Humane Society before coming into SPCA's care as a 'community cat' and was ear-tipped although she was not feral. Just a lost or abandoned kitty looking for a safe indoor home of her own.

Lovebug
This playful girl is looking for an active home!
LOVEBUG is a friendly, energetic and playful kitty who likes to be 'in the middle of everything.' She loves to be around people and needs plenty of interactive play. She also plays with toys on her own - especially with a little ball she carries and bats around the house.

Lovebug needs a home where her human companions are around a fair amount and have time for plenty of interactive play. Lovebug is very attached to her foster dad who is her 'play buddy.' She meows sadly when he leaves for work in the morning. She likes a little bit of petting behind her ears and under her chin, but gets over-stimulated with too much petting on her body. She likes to curl up next to her foster parents for a long nap, and sometimes sits in her foster dad's lap. She also greets them at the door when they come home from work, and sleeps quietly at the foot of their bed at night.

Lovebug likes to hang around when guests visit her foster home. Her foster mom says Lovebug finds people fascinating and enjoys sitting and watching people interact. Lovebug also loves to watch the birds and squirrels outside through a window, or when sitting on a screened in porch. Her foster parents are teaching her to go on short walks with a harness and leash - but keep in mind that Lovebug wants to take the lead!

Lovebug is the princess of her domain and needs a home without young children, other cats or dogs. She can be a little temperamental so it's important that her forever home is able to meet her needs. Once settled into the right home, Lovebug is a truly wonderful companion.

Lovebug was rescued by a Good Samaritan who found her roaming the streets - starving and looking for food. She was spayed and ear-tipped before coming into our care. This tells us that she was probably rounded up as a stray kitty, spayed, and returned to the neighborhood where she was found.

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.

Panther
Panther is a big love bug!
PANTHER is a big boy! He is sweet and loving and adores being with people. Panther loves greeting everybody at the door and likes rubbing up against you to show his affection. He likes sleeping at the foot of your bed at night, or snuggling with you as you watch TV.

Panther needs a home where he will get plenty of attention. He was adopted out as a kitten, along with his sister Pringles (shown below), into a home that now has four very young children and a big dog. Panther needs a home where the adults and older kids have more time for him. Panther does great with dogs but needs a home without another cat - he was a bit too dominant over his sister, Pringles.

Panther is a big cat, but also needs to lose weight. We have started him on a healthy weight reduction diet. He needs a forever home that will continue to work on his weight management to ensure he remains a healthy kitty.

Petunia
This girl is friendly and likes to be 'in charge!'
PETUNIA is a sociable, kitty who enjoys playing with little furry mice, bird-watching and snuggling with her foster mom. She is happiest in a warm sunny spot or hiding her favorite toys for future fun.

Petunia likes feline companionship but she's particular about who she hangs out with! She can be an only cat in her forever home. Or, she would enjoy having a younger 'teenage' female kitty introduced after she settles in. The younger kitty will need to accept her at 'top cat.' Petunia prefers the company of adults or older children because young children startle her.

Petunia is a wonderful kitty - she just likes to have things her way!

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 had occasional bouts of skin irritation so we think he has other allergies, possibly to food or environmental allergens.

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

Pringles - Adoption Pending!
Pringles is sweet and loving!
PRINGLES is a gentle cat who purrs to her heart's content when getting a good back scratch. She also loves being brushed and likes to talk to let you know what's on her mind. While Pringles is usually pretty relaxed during the day and always seems to find the sunny spots in the house to nap, she is always up for playing with a string or toy!

Pringles loves dogs but will do best as the only kitty in the home because she spent the first several years of her life being overshadowed by her big brother, Panther (shown above). Pringles also does very well with older children and is very patient with them.

Pringles is a tad bit overweight. We have started her on a healthy weight reduction diet. She needs a forever home that will continue to work on her weight management to ensure she remains a healthy kitty.

Pringles was adopted out as a kitten with her brother, Panther. Their home had grown to include four very young children and a large dog. Pringles needs a quieter home environment where the adults or older kids have more time to give her love and affection.

Rio
Rio is a sweetheart!
RIO is a very playful, happy, and talkative kitty. She loves to play with anything that moves and is always ready to play. Rio's favorite toy is her little toy mouse which is her source of daily entertainment.

Rio also LOVES being around people. She likes to greet you at the door and give you lots of affection.

Rio needs to be the 'queen of her castle' and to be the only pet in her forever home. She will make any family happy and she deserves a wonderful home to live in.

Rio (which means 'river' in Spanish) was found on the banks for the Shenandoah River living among some other outdoor kitties. Now in our care, this friendly girl is happy being an indoor-only kitty where she loves getting lots of interaction with humans.

Ruby Tuesday
RUBY TUESDAY is a multi-dimensional kitty. She is friendly and playful. She is also sweet and independent...and just a little bit sassy! Ruby does great with cat-friendly dogs, but probably 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 use to Cassie, but now her favorite pass-time 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 this great kitty a forever home!

Rusty
Rusty NEEDS an active home to keep him occupied!
RUSTY is a beautiful orange tabby boy who loves everyone. He is very friendly, outgoing and playful. Bring out feather toys, balls, mice, or a string and Rusty chases them for hours. Rusty needs a VERY active home with lots of activity and interaction with humans and at least one other kitty to bond and play with. He needs a rough and tumble male cat friend who wants to play and wrestle, but he also knows how to respect a cat that wants to be left alone. His current feline foster buddies are one of each, and Rusty does very well respecting both. He is great with both cats and dogs and kids of all ages.

Rusty also enjoys snuggling with his human friends after he has had ample time to play. Once tired, he flops down on your lap while watching TV for some affection and a short nap. While Rusty visits you in bed as you turn out the light, he prefers to sleep at the top of a 7 foot cat tree instead of spending the night with you. Rusty knows how important breakfast is for a growing boy, so he follows his foster mom around and then waits with his feline foster siblings for his breakfast!

Rusty was a stray kitty who showed up in a neighborhood where he was being cared for temporarily as an indoor/outdoor cat until coming into SPCA's care. Now an exclusively indoor kitty, Rusty will thrive in a forever home that has lots of activity and love to give this sweet boy!

Sandy & Sunny
These girls are a great summer combination!
SANDY & SUNNY have different backgrounds, but both came into SPCA's care weighing less than a pound. They are never far apart from each other in their foster home and must be adopted as a pair.

SANDY is an adventurous, affectionate kitten who adjusts quickly to new environments. She greets everyone she meets and has such a happy disposition. Sandy has a nice purr motor and likes to be a part of her foster family's activities.

SUNNY is equally affectionate once she is comfortable with her surroundings. Sunny definitely takes her queues from Sandy when it comes to adapting to new people and places.

Sandy and Sunny have been exposed to young children, dogs and adult cats and will do well in any type of forever home.

Sandy came into SPCA's care with her brothers after being found under the porch of a rental home. Their caretakers had moved out and took the mom cat but abandoned her kittens. Sunny came from a local shelter where she had been found in the bushes at an apartment complex. Lucky to be alive, these girls are thriving and looking for a home of their own.

Simba & Solstice
These boys are best buddies!
SIMBA came from a home with too many kitties, and SOLSTICE came from a Washington, DC shelter. They met in their foster home, and instantly became good buddies. They are never far from each other, and with different personalities, they make an all-around great kitten pair for any type of forever home.

SIMBA has a loverboy personality. He drapes himself in your arms, in any position, and purrs loudly. Despite being a ragdoll in your arms, Simba also has a lot of energy to burn up on a daily basis. Luckily, Solstice has this same wild kitten streak, and the two kitties play amazing games of chase throughout their foster home.

SOLSTICE is a very curious kitten who shows affection to his foster family when he's in the mood. But mostly he's too busy watching bugs from the sun porch, exploring, and chasing Simba or the matchbox cars on the racetrack that belong to his foster family's young son.

These kittens have been exposed to large dogs, and other adult cats in their foster home. They are comfortable with any type of activity level, including an active home with children.
