New homes for all!


A Case of Mistaken Identity and SURPRISE!
Sophia is lovely young cat who was mistakenly let into a community member’s home by the homeowner’s mother -- who thought she belonged in the home. Sophia quickly made herself comfortable and gave birth to four kittens! She and her four babies (Snowflake, Banjo, Pippy, and Skittles) were cared for until they became approximately 8 weeks old and then were taken to the SPCA of Tompkins County for further care and future adoption.
Our faculty and students were happy to see Sophia and her kittens in excellent condition -- affectionate and bundles of energy! After preventive medical care including vaccines, testing, and spa-neuter services, the whole family quickly was adopted to forever homes.
Smart, Sophia --- very smart.{back}
