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!

I'm a proud mom of 4 rescues and would love to see Noni adopted. Although my "throw away" kitties all appeared to be healthy when I brought them home one has developed diabetes and one has numerous birth defects. In the last 3 years I have accumulated $8000 in debt to cover their medical expenses. Do I regret keeping them? Absolutely not! I would just ask, that people really think before adopting an animal with special needs and be prepared to care for your pet as they age.

I wish I could I'm in California. I have 3 younger cats but I love my seniors too! I hope someone isn't just talk and really snags this gal. If you have concerns about the meds I'm sure there are resources available. I have care credit which I keep for emergency vet care and I get a year no interest and the most my payments were was 67 a mo for 800 dollars worth of credit. Please keep us updated. I'm shocked no one has adopted her. :(

I am looking to adopt a cat with hyperthyroidism. I have a 14 year old on y/d, no meds, and would like a friend for her. I rescued Slick at 14 with her illness and she is doing good. I live in Seabrook, NH and can visit anywhere in NE to find a pal for her.

How is she with dogs? I have 4 geriatric dogs.

I can take Noni but I live in N.C. and would need to coordinate transportation. I have 5 small dogs and I work from home. All of my dogs are terrific with cats because they lived with mine for 14 years. My Lily passed this past July and I still have much of her "kitty suite" in place. I am all set up to care very well for a geriatric kitty and the meds twice per day are no problem. I already have a geriatric doggy on meds twice per day. There are no children in my home and I am here all day. In fact, there are 5 dog beds under my desk and the kitty corner is also in my office. Basically I work with 5 dogs snoring at my feet all day. And the kitty would have a cozy window hammock with a heating pad to lounge upon and find respite from nosy pooches, need be. Please contact me if we can arrange for Miss Noni to come live in North Carolina. P.S. No kitties are allowed outdoors. It's too dangerous. In fact, all my critters live to old age. I am extremely protective. They are my universe.

Where is Noninvasive located, how old is she? Is she spayed? And how is she with a dog? Our cat of seven hrs approx. Got hit by a car, and would love another shelter cat. But not sure about the cost.
