OG, a 14-year-old Cat Up for Adoption in Norfolk, Needs Your Help Finding a home

Update:  OG was adopted!

I went out to Norfolk Animal Care & Adoption Center (NACC) for Furry Friday where I met OG.

Stephanie Taylor with OG

This cuddly girl was found as a stray on Valentine’s Day and the staff believe she is about 14-years-old. She has been looked over by NACC’s vet team and is in good health!

She is spayed, vaccinated and ready home with someone today.

OG will immediately curl up in your lap and start to purr.  She let me know she wanted to be petted with a few gentle head butts.

She would love a nice calm home with a cozy blanket and someone to love her.

Can’t adopt but still want to help? Norfolk Animal Care Center can use many household items to make the animals’ stay more comfortable. Towels, blankets, cat litter, toys, treats and more are always needed.  See the complete Wish List here. If you can’t get by the shelter in person, you can buy directly from the Amazon wish list here and have it shipped.

P.S. I crocheted a blanket and left it with her at the shelter so she would be nice and cozy until she’s ready to go home.

Other ways to help:


For many animals, the next chapter in their life is a direct result of the contributions of volunteers. Volunteering is not only rewarding, it’s a great way of giving back to the animals who give so much to us. This also includes:

  • Increased satisfaction from making a difference in the lives of homeless (shelter) animals.

  • Strong ties to our community of fellow animal lovers.

  • Deeper understanding of animal care and behavior.

  • Reduced stress levels for volunteers and shelter animals alike.

Foster families provide hundreds of shelter animals the extra attention and time in a home that they need to recover from illness or injury, have a break from the shelter, or in the case of kittens, the time required to reach that 2-month mark and be ready for adoption. The Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center has current foster opportunities available that include:

  1. Fostering kittens by  showering them with love until they are ready for their forever home.

  2. Fostering neonatal kittens! They need bottle feeding every two to six hours, depending on their age. Spring through fall is ‘Kitten Season’ and the more foster homes we have ready for neonatal kittens, the better.

  3. Adult dogs and cats who need a break from the shelter.

  4. Dogs and cats with special behavioral needs. Some of our animals lack socialization and training, and time spent in a foster home working on obedience and basic skills can make all the difference!

  5. Animals who are recovering from a medical procedure or illness. If you don’t have any other pets, we need you most of all for these types of animals! Having a quiet place to rest and recover makes a huge difference.
