Sex:   Female
Description: Brown Tabby

TILLY is a curious girl who likes to be where the action is. She loves to play, especially with her fuzzy mice or ping-pong balls. 

Tilly has warmed up quickly to to her foster parents and with the resident male cat. She enjoys instigating a game of chase with her feline buddy and makes it clear who is the boss! Tilly likes to follow her foster parents around their place and always seems interested in what they are doing. She is also a snuggler and loves sleeping in between her foster parents at night and has an adorable chirp she uses when she wants attention. She is also a very well-mannered kitty who doesn't jump on counters and always uses her scratching post.

Tilly needs a kitty to play with in her forever home. She is also comfortable with cat friendly, laid-back dogs and older children. She can be a little sassy and likes to have things her way. 

Tilly came into our care from a local shelter with a litter of tiny kittens.

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.
