The Smithfield Times Magazine and the Community Cat Center are working together to find loving homes for kitties that are currently living in their shelter. Here are their stories:

SCARY SPICE & BABY MAMA SPICE: Introducing a special case mother and daughter “dynamic duo” in search of their very own forever home. Baby Mama Spice is around 3 years old and has tested positive for FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus). She is a nice cat with good manners, but she is skittish around people. She lives in her foster home with her kitten, Scary Spice. She and the foster have an agreement that the foster can look but not touch. She has a great bond with her kitten, and it would be amazing to be able to adopt them together. Potential adopters should understand FeLV, and that Baby Mama Spice will need to be on a diet of high-quality food to help maintain her health. Baby Mama Spice is slightly sassy and cautious with her personal space. She is very treat-motivated and has started taking treats by hand. Baby Mama Spice is learning how to trust if she sets the pace, and it is on her own terms.

Scary Spice is an 11-month-old, friendly, adventurous kitten. She is from a family of FeLV positive cats and does carry the gene. Out of an abundance of caution, Scary Spice should be the only cat in the home, or she can live with FeLV cats. She has not tested positive for FeLV, but her status may change in the future. Scary Spice is a very interactive, talkative kitten who likes to be in the middle of everything. She likes attention and pets but is not super snuggly. She takes her duties very seriously and must inspect every new addition to the home, no matter how insignificant! She scored 100% for inspecting grocery bags! Scary Spice is delightful and will make her adopters laugh every day.

CURIOUS GEORGE: Things are getting curiouser and curiouser! Say hello to this handsome 2-year-old black and white fellow. Curious George was found as a stray when he came to our cat center. We are not sure how long he had to fend for himself on the streets because it took him some time to realize that there are people who care, and he was safe once again. When he finally let his guard down, it was like a whole new cat was revealed and Curious George showed us all his true personality. He is a sweetie and a mush at heart. He enjoys gentle pets and will bunt your hand with his head to show his affection. This deserving kitty can be vocal at times, and he meows to seek your attention. Curious George is laidback, enjoys a good catnap, and would desire nothing more than to be your forever companion!


If you are interested in adopting any of the cats featured in this article, please submit an application today which can be found in the link below. The CCC will only be accepting pre-approved applicants for meet and greet appointments once the completed application has been received.

A no-kill shelter is an animal shelter that does not kill healthy or treatable animals even when the shelter is full, reserving euthanasia for terminally ill animals or those considered dangerous to public safety.
