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!

omg she looks just like our male cat sammy, identical. sammy would have been 11 years old this year but he passed away due to a heart defect. i cannot believe how identical she is to him.


if i was closer i would adopt her in a heartbeat


There isnt much I can do to help from Seattle, but please keep us updated on Noni. I have spread the word to all of the people I can. This special kitty needs a loving forever home soon!


I will adopt her if New Orleans fails to do so! I live in NC and would fly her here.


Please be careful when transporting animals via air without an accompanying person. Animals are often handled worse than luggage and I've heard some horror stories of missing and worse yet, dead traveling pets.


I just want to thank u for allowing her to stay alive while waiting, here in windsor ont, we call spca to help a cat , can we bring her in, they told me sure, but she will be dead by the end of the day so she has better luck on the street...i dare say the words humane should no longer be on the sign

I have posted this on my page and hope it helps to make this little girl happy. I have two tuxedo cats already and just no more room for this little lady.


I wonder if she's a candidate for I-131 treatment for her hyperthyroidism. While expensive, this would negate the need for twice daily meds and make her much more reasonable for the average family to adopt.

Yep, I was thinking the same thing, actually. We had it done for one of our cats - if they would do that for her it would potentially make her more adoptable..though if she will eat the pill in those "pill pockets" its not too hard to give meds.


We are interested in adoption. I work here in NYC in the 50s. My husband and I have plenty of experience with special needs pets. Our Tigger passed away at age 20 over the winter with diabetes and a past history of thyroid problems as well. Can you please contact me to discuss Noni's needs further? Thank you. Denise
