Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We’d like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Pippin, one of sixteen cats who were saved in August from a fatal house fire in Mount Kisco, New York.
Tragically, the blaze took the life of 86 year-old Chrystine Nicholas, who is believed to have gone back into the house to rescue the animals. The rescued cats, who now reside at the SPCA of Westchester in Briarcliff Manor, are between 6 and 10 years old and most suffered from upper respiratory infections and various ailments. All have been medically treated and rehabilitated as well as spayed/neutered and vaccinated.
The cats range from social and friendly to timid and shy — as for Pippin, despite her age of 10, she’s still a little pip.
“She loves people and other cats and is very outgoing,” says development manager Lisa Bonanno-Spence. “She loves hanging out and getting pet too.”
The sweet kitty — who has long hair and “gorgeous” markings — would do well with a family. “She loves rubbing up against you,” she adds. “She’s a snuggle bug.”
