Ada was adopted from SF Animal Care & Control in August 2019. She was about 7 months old at adoption, and we’ve estimated her birthday to be 1/31/19. We don’t have a lot of information prior to her being at SF-ACC; she was found in a city park.
She is a bit aloof, and could probably use someone familiar with owning cats for her new home. She likes to be in the same room as me when I’m home, but doesn’t like a ton of petting, cuddling, or being held. She will cuddle up with me at night, and likes to sleep on my bed.
We are looking for a new home because she has been unable to adjust to other pets in the house – she has started peeing in my bed and acting out. She’s had vet tests done and is physically healthy, but efforts to relieve her stress (keeping separate from the dog, playing before bed, etc) have not kept her from continuing to pee on the bed. She had none of these issues prior.
She is a shy cat, and while she is friendly and curious to new humans, she needs a quieter home (no travel) that has no other pets.

To expedite the adoption process, please complete the cat or dog adoption form and bring a printed copy with you to the SF SPCA Adoption Center (Hours & Location). This helps us better understand what sort of pet you’re looking for so we can guide you every step of the way! Please bring a valid photo ID and verification that you are allowed to have a pet where you currently live.
First, we’ll meet with you to find out more about you and your pet preferences and answer your questions. Our goal is to help you find the pet that best fits your lifestyle and living situation so we want to make sure you have a realistic understanding of the time and resources necessary to provide training, medical treatment, and proper care for your new pet. This can take time so please allow at least one hour for the adoption process.
Once we have a good understanding of your living situation and the type of pet you’re interested in, we’ll make introductions and let you spend some quality time getting to know each other to see if there’s a love connection. It’s important that all household members take part in this important decision so please make sure everyone is present (including any resident dogs if you’re considering adding a new pooch to your pack).
Once love happens, we’ll complete the paperwork, review all the SF SPCA adoption benefits, provide information on any known medical or behavioral issues, and share tips to make the transition a success for both you and your new pet.
We consider you and your new furry friend a part of the SF SPCA family so please reach out with questions ― and be sure to share your adoption stories and pet photos at sfspca.org/stories
Don’t forget to schedule your first free health exam at the SF SPCA Veterinary Hospital within three days of adopting.
