Miss Deja went from being a shy gal who spent her days at the SPCA-HC hiding under her blanket, to the star of her new household! It brought sunshine and rainbows to our day to read this update from Deja’s purrfect new furrever home!

“Just wanted to send you guys a little note letting you know that Deja’s first week in her new home has been splendid! She spent the first day and a half mostly hiding behind the washing machine (while still coming out for loves every now and then), but now she’s a total social butterfly. She hasn’t been under a blanket once! She is incredibly affectionate — I swear you can hear this cat purring from two rooms away. Her favorite place to lay is the living room rug, flat on her back with her tummy to the ceiling. It’s like she’s purposely trying to look as cute as possible 🙂 Also, if I didn’t know she was 10 years old, I wouldn’t believe it! She loves to zip around the house and whenever my husband or I get up to walk to a different room, she leads the way at a trot, always trying to predict where we’re going. She’s eating/drinking well, she’s sleeping well, using the litter box well and healthfully. Things couldn’t possibly be going better. Thank you so much for helping me choose her, and, thank you so much for what you do there at the SPCA.”

We truly love stories like this that remind folks that even the most shy cats have the potential to blossom when they’re showered with the love and affection they so deeply deserve!



We had previously shared that Scooby was our current longest-cat resident at the SPCA-HC, having been here since April. We were hoping he may get an adoption application from the post, but we were hesitant to get too hopeful, as Scooby had some health needs that tend to scare people away, including being FIV+ and needing a special diet for diabetic remission.

Anyway, we posted Scooby’s lengthy stay status and asked the community to share his story in hopes that he would find a furever home, and boy, did you all deliver! His story was shared far and wide… and then, we received a message.

For me, it was not only rewarding to see a wonderful dog find a new home but even better, I get to see Lily at work several times a week. She is a wonderful dog who has fit into both her new families both at home and at work. Every now and then when no one is looking, Lily  gives me a wink, letting me know that she remembers our first meeting at the SPCA and thanking me for the wonderful family I helped connect her with..

Hey everyone! It’s me, Lacuna! I have been with my new family for over a month now and my goodness do I love it. I get spoiled every day with love, endless head kisses, and rubs. My fur mom said she came with the intent of getting a cat only a year or two old but when she saw me she knew I was the one.
