Cat of the Week: Tallulah in Washington, DC

Each week in this space, we feature a senior cat in need of adoption or sponsorship. Please remember all the older cats in shelters. They make great companions, and unlike kittens, they (probably) won’t climb the curtains! Adopt a senior cat, and help him or her enjoy the best years of their life.

This week, please meet Tallulah, a 9-year-old girl who is truly a low-maintenance cat. Tallulah first came to the shelter about 4 years ago when her person could no longer care for her. She was adopted by a nice family, but they couldn’t keep her because of allergies, so she bounced back to the shelter. It’s time for this sweetie to find a permanent, loving home. Tallulah is quite happy to sleep all day in a nice, comfy spot, and she enjoys being petted. She has lived with kids and other cats before and has done fine with both.

Tallulah is currently at the Humane Rescue Alliance’s Oglethorpe Street adoption center. Stop by and meet her, or learn more about her here.

Can’t adopt but still want to help? Learn how you can sponsor an animal at the Humane Rescue Alliance, or check out this page to learn other ways to donate.

Do you know an adoptable senior cat who’d make a great Cat of the Week? Let us know!


  1. What a gorgeous girl. I bet she's a total sweetheart too.

  2. Tallulah is beautiful. I feel bad that someone returned her with the lame allergy excuse, that drives me crazy. I wish I could adopt her.

  3. How could anyone ever return such a cute kitty
