Description:     Calico

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 her own home!

Penny is very active and loves playing the game of hide and seek. Always the adventurer, she is constantly seeking new ways to reach something that has been placed out of her reach. So kitten proofing is needed in her forever home. Penny enjoys batting toys around the house, and when she sees you going up the stairs, she likes to race you to the top.

When Penny slows down, she is very loving and purrs when given the slightest bit of attention. She loves being petted and held like a baby, and often flops down in front of you when she wants to be noticed. This sweet lap kitty loves to jump up on your lap while you're working and start purring, and often falls asleep there. At night, she loves to curl up with her foster parents and enjoys sleeping as close to them as possible!

Penny would do great in a home with adults only or a family with older kids. She came into our care with her siblings (all adopted) 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.
