Name:            Hocus Pocus

Gender:          Female
DOB:              June 2016
Description:    Black

HOCUS POCUS is a lovable little gem of a cat. She is sweet and affectionate, playful and friendly. She settles right away into a new home and is at ease with everyone she meets.

Hocus Pocus has a jet black coat and beautiful green eyes. She loves to follow you around the house, sit in your lap and snuggle up at bedtime. And if that isn't enough affection for you...she also likes to wake you up in the morning by nuzzling your face.

This sweet girl is also very playful. After 'raising' her six kittens, she is as lively as ever. We have not seen Hocus Pocus interact with other cats or dogs, so we don't know how she would do with either. She seems happy as an only kitty as long as long as she gets plenty of attention. She would do great with a couple or a family with kids to keep her company. 

Hocus Pocus came into our care from a local shelter when her kittens were about 4 weeks of age. Now that her kittens have been adopted, it's her turn to find that loving forever home she wants and deserves.

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.
