Find a friend: Adopt Helen

The cat that launched one thousand ships!

Once a week Metro features an animal you can adopt from the ASPCA. This week, say hello to Helen! 

Helen is currently enjoying some time as a foster kitty. If you are interested in meeting her, please call the ASPCA’s Adoption Center to make an appointment, 212-876-7700 ext. 4120. 

Helen is a beautiful three-and-a-half-year-old Ocicat-mix who can’t wait to settle in to a home of her own.

She is super sweet and loves to be loved and pet. Helen is happier when her feet are securely on the ground, and can get a bit frightened when picked up. However, when she bonds to her new family, she may start to feel more comfortable about being lifted.

This pretty kitty prefers to be the center of your attention, so she doesn’t enjoy the company of other cats. If you’re looking for a cat that will be you’re new best friend, Helen could be your purr-fect match!

Helen is spayed and up-to-date on all vaccinations. We also include a microchip and free follow-up vet exam. So stop by the ASPCA Adoption Center and take your new best friend home today!
