Cat of the Week: Sizzle in Washington, DC

Cat of the Week badge

June is Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat Month. At this time of year, “kitten season,” the young kittens get a lot of attention. But there are lots of older cats in shelters just waiting to be welcomed into a loving forever home. That’s why each week in this space, we feature a senior cat (7 years +) in need of adoption or sponsorship. Mature cats 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 Sizzle!

Our Cat of the Week is Sizzle, a 10-year-old female who loves, loves, loves to cuddle. Sizzle is very affectionate, and she comes from a loving home, so she’s eager to get back into an environment where she’ll be treasured forever. She is a little on the large side (20 pounds!), and she’s trying to lose weight. If you’ve ever been on a diet, you’ll understand how she feels. In her spare time, she enjoys patrolling the bathtub and chasing string. Sizzle does not have experience living with other cats, so she would prefer to be an only cat.

Sizzly is currently in a foster home through the Humane Rescue Alliance. Find out more about her here, and to see more pictures, check out her Instagram account (where she’s called Tubby)!

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.

Look at that happy face!
Sizzle is a cat who loves attention. Who's ready
to give her some?


  1. Sizzle is going to fry up her permanent forever home soon, I just know it!

  2. Sizzle (aka Tubby) is just too darn cute to not be adopted yet!

  3. Ah, Sizzle - all cats want to be the only cat, at least all 10 of mine do.

  4. Sizzle is gorgeous, I hope she gets a forever home soon.
