Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We’d like to help change that by introducing you to extraordinary adoptable pets every week. Say hello to Oreo, Sunshine and Stripes – three adorable 8-week-old kittens who love causing trouble.
It’s kitten season, so sweet faces like these are a dime a dozen at shelters across the country. Oreo, a black-and-white male, Sunshine, an orange female, and Stripes, a tabby male, recently came in as strays to the SPCA of Westchester in Briarcliff Manor, N.Y., and have been causing quite the fuzz – er, fuss – ever since.
Stripes (who dozed off during this photo shoot!) and Sunshine are siblings, and they’ve found a stepbrother in sweet, rambunctious Oreo. Together, this trio is playful, active and very talkative. And while they all love being held and pouncing on their mouse toys, they’re each displaying unique personality traits, too.
While sleepy Stripes may be the most laid-back of the group, “Oreo is the most outgoing and you can tell he is always thinking of ways to escape,” says development director Lisa Bonanno-Spence. “Sunshine the orange girl is the most cuddly.”
For more information on how to bring home one – or all! – of these pretty kitties, visit the SPCA’s website to fill out an application.

Adopting a pet is an amazing experience – and a big decision! Before bringing a pet into your home it’s important to consider your family circumstances and do your research on breeds.
