Name:           Nisha

Gender:         Female
DOB:             July 2014
Description:    Black and White

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.

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.
