Alley is a friendly guy who’s happiest when he’s getting plenty of attention from his special people. Bring out his favorite toys and some yummy treats, and he’s sure to keep you laughing for hours with his playful antics.
Although Alley loves affection from his humans, this feisty feline has a habit of nibbling on your fingers while you’re petting him. Our Adoptions team can give you tips to prevent this behavior. This funny guy would love to be the center of your attention and would be thrilled as the only cat in the household. Alley would do best in a home with kids ages 10-and-up. Adopt Alley today!
Alley is available for adoption at the ASPCA Adoption Center. If you are interested in adopting, please call our Adoptions Department in New York City at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120. To learn more about Alley, please visit his profile page.
Although there is still one month to go, we can safely say that 2014 has been a banner year for the ASPCA. We opened a new facility in Los Angeles, granted over $13 million to local shelters and animal welfare groups around the country, and helped pass crucial legislation in the fight against animal cruelty. But among our many accomplishments, there is one thing that we are most excited to share: adoption stories.
Helping abused and neglected animals find loving homes is at the heart of what we do. This year alone, our New York City Adoption Center helped find homes for over 3,300 animals, 300 of whom were victims of cruelty. And a home for these animals is more than just a warm bed or bowl of food—it’s a second chance at life.
To celebrate these happy new beginnings, we’ll be sharing 31 of our favorite Happy Tails from 2014 throughout the month of December. Every day, we’ll feature the story of an animal who has overcome cruelty or neglect and gone on to become a loving family pet.
To enjoy all “31 Days of Rescue,” simply follow the ASPCA on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest for daily updates. You can also follow the hashtag #31DaysOfRescue.
Though their pasts may have been painful, each of these 31 animals has found the “forever home” that they truly deserve—and to us, that is the Happiest Tail of all.

Olivia is a sweet and social cat who would love to be your new best friend. This pretty lady loves attention from her favorite people, but prefers it on her own terms—let her sniff your hand, and once you’re friends, she’ll happily let you scratch her head and face.
It may take Olivia some time to adjust to her new home, but with the help of some yummy treats and her favorite toys, she’ll start to relax in no time. Although she likes affection, Olivia prefers not be picked up and is sensitive to touch around her stomach and tail.
