Cat of the Week: Lyla 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.

Adopt Lyla, 8-yr-old Tortie female, Humane Rescue Alliance, Washington, DC
This week, please meet Lyla, a lovely 8-year-old tortie girl. Lyla’s previous person passed away, and now she is in need of a new person to give her lots of love. She is a young senior who has a lot of years to live and a lot of love to give. She is very affectionate, greeting people at the door and sitting near you while you work or watch television. She also enjoys head scritches. Lyla can also look after herself while you’re at work, so no worries about that!

Lyla is currently in a foster home through the Humane Rescue Alliance. 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. Such a cutie- I hope she gets her forever home soon.

  2. She's gorgeous!!! Everyone should experience the love of a tortie lady at least once in their lives. (Love your Cat of the Week graphic too!!!)

  3. Such a precious sweetheart! And a beautiful tortie to boot!
