For adoptable cats Mario and Ricky, it’s all about living a balanced life. They aren’t the type of guys to rush into things. These independent cats, who are best buddies and would like to be adopted together, are shy and prefer to take things slow. They may need a little extra time to warm up to their new surroundings, but with a space to themselves and the help of a few yummy treats, these two will happily adjust to their new home in no time!
These sweet cats like affection on occasion, but also enjoy quality time alone relaxing on the couch or in their favorite chair. They’d make the perfect match for a family looking to bring home two furry friends that don’t require a lot of attention. Mario and Ricky would do best in a quiet household with an experienced adopter. Adopt Mario and Ricky today!
Mario and Ricky are 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 these best friends, please visit Mario and Ricky’s profile pages.
Looking for a sweet and sensitive kitty companion? Look no further than Glenda (pictured right) or Kathy (pictured below). These pretty girls both have special needs, and are each looking for patient and caring forever families to love and take care of them.*
Glenda and Kathy are both diabetic and will require daily insulin shots from their adopters—but with proper care and special diets, their conditions can be well-managed. While it would be great if Glenda and Kathy’s adoptive families be familiar with feline diabetes, our medical team can show you the ropes and help you address their unique health needs.
We know adopting pets with special needs can be both a financial and time commitment, but these sweet girls will reward you with plenty of love in return! Glenda and Kathy would do best with experienced adopters, and Kathy would prefer to be the only cat in the household. Adopt Glenda or Kathy today!
*Note: While Glenda and Kathy have similar needs, they do not need to be adopted together.

Feather is a very independent cat. She likes attention, but would prefer to decide when to receive it. This pretty lady also has a playful side! She would love nothing more than regular play sessions with her new family and favorite toys.

At the ASPCA, we LOVE black kitties—but the sad truth is that not everyone feels the same way. Due to outdated (and incorrect) myths and superstitions, black cats have a really hard time getting adopted. That’s why we were so glad to learn that this Sunday, August 17, is Black Cat Appreciation Day!
To celebrate this holiday, we put together just a few of the many reasons we appreciate these raven-coated kitties:
Black cats go with everything—and they’ll never go out of style!
You can tell your kids you adopted a miniature panther.
Their fur won’t show on your little black dress.
In most cultures, black cats are a sign of good luck.
Black cats are just as loving, sweet and wonderful as any other cat!
We hope you will join us in celebrating Black Cat Appreciation Day by heading to your local shelter and bringing home a black cat this weekend. If you’re in the New York City area, come meet some the black cats available at the ASPCA Adoption Center right now:
Salem Salem can be a bit shy with new people, but once he gets to know you, he’ll shower you with purrs, head-butts, and plenty of lap time. If properly introduced, this handsome 2-year-old can live in a home with another cat.
Pinky This sweet, soulful 4-year-old cat is ready for his forever home. He’s a bit nervous around other cats, so Pinky would do best in a home where he gets to be the only pet. He also has a soft spot for yummy treats!
Princess Princess is a sensitive kitty and can be timid around new people. Once she relaxes, though, she is very sweet and enjoys petting. She will do best in a home with an experienced cat adopter and respectful kids ages 14 and up.
JamesandGwendolyn James (4) and Gwendolyn (6) are another bonded pair. These sweeties like attention, but they also appreciate their solitude from time to time. Both are FIV positive and would do best in a stable home with an experienced adopter.
BernardandMinerva Bernard and Minerva are BFFs (Best Feline Friends), so they are looking for a home together. These four-month-old kitties would do best in a quiet home with respectful kids ages 12 and up.
