Adopt Me: O'Malley the sweet and sassy calico

A home with no young children would be best for her

HalifaxToday, in partnership with the Dartmouth SPCA, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


O'Malley is approximately 12 years young and is our newest Palliative Care candidate. This older gal is looking for a calm household where she would be the only pet. With O' Malley's age and her temperament we feel the best fit for her is one with no young children.

"O'Malley is a sweet calico with some spunk. She likes naps, playing with string, treats, watching fish, and catnip.

She is not a big fan of belly rubs and tolerates being brushed and picked up but they are not her cup of tea. She will let you know when she does not like something and is very gentle about it.

She is somewhat of an independent cat but also enjoys attention. She greets people at the door and follows everyone around the house. She prefers to be where the people are. She sleeps at the edge of the bed every night and is happy to be pet throughout the day.

She hasn't shown much interest in cuddling yet but its possible that she just needs more time to feel comfortable enough. She is a very quiet cat, she lets out one or two meows in excitement for meals, purrs like a motorboat and makes soft, cooing noises while sleeping.

She is a low maintenance pet, she doesn't jump up on things or knock stuff over or run throughout the house. The more comfortable she feels, the more her personality comes out and it has been a pleasure to watch. She will need someone with enough patience to let her settle into a new space and time to warm up to her new family in order to feel comfortable to be her happiest self."

O'Malley currently resides in one of our amazing foster homes. She is available for adoption from the Dartmouth SPCA. Please contact us for more information and meeting O'Malley at 902-468-7877 or by email at
