Piccolo’s Country Life

Piccolo has come a long way since her rescue from a hoarding situation by the ASPCA. After joining Siheun S. in her family’s country home, Piccolo has finally had the chance to experience life with a loving forever family. Siheun shared the following story with us:

Piccolo was adopted in September and is living with our family in North Stamford, Connecticut. I had been fostering another cat, but his pet parent came back to the country and reclaimed him. So, Piccolo was adopted to join our family in his place! 

I adopted Piccolo at the ASPCA Adoption Center because I have great faith in your organization—and it was my first adoption from ASPCA! In particular, I chose to adopt Piccolo because I was touched by how she head-butted me during my first visit to the Adoption Center.

I thought Piccolo would need some time to get accustomed to her new surroundings, but she is curious, fearless and loves meeting new people. She also loves cuddling and tries to sleep on top of me at night. 

Piccolo looks pretty calm and serene in pictures, but she is actually quite energetic and doesn't sit still for too long. She also loves biting my ankles and chasing after people to follow them around the house; you have to be careful not to trip on her.

I wonder how her personality will develop as she matures!

Pretty Piccolo does looks serene and so majestic in the photos. She sounds like she is having a blast in her new home though! I am so happy for this gorgeous, sweet little cat and for her kind new family.


I love this story! Thanks for sharing! :)


Piccolo is just beautiful and I'm so happy that you gave her a home where she knows she's loved. You're great. I have a rescue cat - he's a tabby and I named him Little Man. I love him dearly.


Thank you for giving Piccalo a home & a new chance at life. What a little sweetie she is. Very beautiful cat!


Was yours the little tabby that was so heartlessly killed by those human"animals" in Ozone Park?
If so, I am so very sorry for your loss. I hope he didn't suffer.


I absolutely LOVE this story and LOVE this kittie's name!!!! She looks precious.
Thank you for giving her a happy home!!!




She is so pretty! What a lucky girl to have a loving family. :-)
