Description:    Black and White

SALVADOR is a very friendly and affectionate kitty. He is both mellow and moderately playful. 

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

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

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

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

About SPCA of Northern Virginia

About Our Rescue Group...

The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Northern Virginia is a non-profit, all-volunteer, private organization established by local concerned citizens to rescue domestic animals from cruelty, neglect, and abandonment. We receive all our funding from membership dues, donations, and fundraising events. We are always striving to enlarge our animal rescue operations and expand our services to the community. Our voluntary Board of Directors, committee members, and volunteers are responsible for all SPCA activities. We do not have a shelter facility, and depend on foster parents to care for domestic animals until adoption.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our dogs are available to meet at twice monthly adoption events in Fairfax, VA.

Our cats are available to meet you in their foster homes
by appointment weeknights or weekends.

Our Adoption Process...

Please read our cat adoption guidelines (at We put a lot of financial and emotional support into our cats and want them placed in homes where they will be members of the family for the rest of their lives. Indoor cats, with care, can live up to 20 years. Not everyone agrees with all of our guidelines. Please read our explanations and talk to our volunteers. If you disagree with us, we suggest you adopt a cat from a different source such as a local shelter. When you adopt a cat from us, you must sign a legal contract stating that you will comply with our guidelines. The adoption fee is $150 for one cat and $250 for two.

For those interested in cat adoptions, all potential adopters must read our adoption guidelines (available on our website at, then meet the cat in person either at an Adoption Fair or in their foster home. We take applications only after you've met the cat and we both feel it's a good match.

All adopters interested in adopting a dog must meet the dog in person, and submit an application. A housecheck is done, and references are checked. If approved, the dog will be placed in the home for a two-week trial period, to make sure that it is a good "fit" for both people and dog. If it is, the adoption is finalized and the adoption fee is paid. We do not adopt outside of the Washington DC metro area.
