Elderly, Sassy Cat Ready for a New Home in Alexandria

Cali is currently the “Cat-Ministrator” at the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria, but she’s ready to settle down and find a permanent home to spend her twilight years.

She is currently in foster care, but AWLA spokeswoman Gina Hardter said the sassy elder cat is ready to find a family to call home.

“Cali is such a wonderful gal to spend time with,” Cali’s foster parent said in an email. “She hops right on your lap as soon as you sit down, and when she isn’t cuddling with you, she enjoys making purr-itos (little kitty caves) out of any available blankets. Her favorite toy is a laser pointer, which is when her inner kitten shines through. Cali will be such a sweet companion for her future family, and I hope she finds them soon!”

In a video put together by the AWLA, it’s clear that Cali has lost none of her kitten-spark when it comes to chasing lasers and playing with toys.

Hardter also noted that her adoption fees have been pre-paid, so there is no cost to adopt her.

An ideal home for Cali would be one that only includes other, ideally smaller, cats.

Those interested in scheduling to meet with her in her foster home can contact the AWLA via email at [email protected] or at 703-746-4774.
