423 Days in Our Shelter—Help Us Find this Senior Kitty a Home!

Monday, July 16, 2012 - 10:15am

Noni has been under our care for 423 days—and that is just way too long. She's receiving lots of attention and socialization with us, but even the ASPCA Adoption Center is no substitute for a loving family.

Noni is one of the prettiest, softest tuxie ladies we've ever seen, and she loves interacting with people, whether she's chasing a toy or receiving a few snuggles. But Noni's life has been anything but easy. She once lived in a hoarding home, and she came to us emaciated; we soon discovered that Noni had an untreated hyperthyroid condition. Our dedicated veterinary staff got Noni back on track, and now she is healthy and flourishing.

But Noni's adopter will need to keep her healthy, and that means not only twice-daily medicine for hyperthyroidism but special food for her sensitive tummy.

We can't wait to see Noni's story of triumph and recovery close with a happy ending, and neither can she. If you've got room in your heart for a special lady like Noni, please consider meeting her today at the ASPCA Adoption Center in NYC. Noni enjoys other cats and wouldn't mind a home with a resident feline friend. If you have any questions, please call the Adoption Desk at (212) 876-7700, ext. 4900.

If you can't bring her home, please share her on Facebook and Twitter. Online fans: You've helped us find homes for animals before—let's do it again for Noni!

Yay! thats great! If they dont contact you (though I hope they read this) I would definitely call them to make sure they know someone really wants to adopt her. (I just like everyone else would love to but already have 3 cats!)

did you get in touch with anyone at the ASPCA? try the adoption desk at (212) 876-7700, ext. 4900 because i doubt they read this page enough to respond directly to you.
hope it works out!


My cat has hyperthyroidism and we had to pill her 2x a day, now with the right adjustment of her meds it's just once a day. The cat gets used to it and it really isn't that much of a bother at all. Those that are considering adopting her but aren't sure because of the medication, trust me it's not that big of a deal! The vet will show you how to properly pill the cat, and then if you reward them with something like brushing or (we feed her canned food right after) it just becomes routine. Thanks to those in the NY area that are willing to adopt her!

My cat, Riley, of 13 years was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. My vet was great, gave me all the information I needed to make an informative decision as to which of the three methods of treatment was best for Riley. After much research I decided to go with the only one with a permanent solution to the problem. Radioactive Iodine Treatment. I had to take Riley to a hospital that specialized in this treatment, it was $1000.00 and he had to stay there for one week. Riley is now 16 1/2 and living the good life ! No pills, no constant worries. He came back to his normal happy self after his week away. :-)
I would recommend this treatment to anyone.

I would live to adopt this wonderful and sweet kitty. Any chance of a kitty trip to Alaska where I live?!


Is it possible to have radiation for Noni ? One of my cats had radiation for her thyroid about 4 years ago. It worked really well, but had a little trouble finding just the right food for her sensitive tummy. She is now eating Royal Canin duck & potatoe. She loves it & so does her tummy! Hoping the very best for Noni.


Did she find a home?
