Cat of the Week: Cuma in Westhampton

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 Cuma! Bideawee westhampton, NY
On this last Tuesday of the month, we are reintroducing Cuma, a lovely 11-year-old tabby who is currently at Bideawee’s Westhampton, New York, location. We featured her once before, but she is still waiting for a forever home. Cuma is very sweet but sometimes gets too excited. She needs someone who will be patient and help her chill out in her new home, where it might take some time for her to bond with a new person. Cuma came to the shelter because the other kitties in her former home were sometimes mean to her, and her person wanted her to be safe. Because she can become overexcited, she would do best in a home with no children.

Who's ready to give Cuma the loving home she's been waiting for?

Can’t adopt but still want to help Cuma and other cats at Bideawee? Learn how you can sponsor a pet, become a Bideawee member, or make a donation.

Do you know an adoptable senior cat who needs some extra attention or an organization that works with senior cats? Let us know!


  1. I wish I could take her right now.

  2. She is a beauty, I hope she gets a forever home soon. I have 2 that get overexcited like that and it realy isn't a problem.

  3. Here's hoping that Cuma's furrever home is just around the corner!

  4. It hurts me so much to see wonderful kitties like Cuma waiting so long for a real home through no fault of their own. I found a similar kitty named Allie at an adoption event over the weekend - and I would've brought her home without a second thought but the rescue thought she'd be best as an only cat (she was surrendered after having litter box issues with other cats). Knowing that Bear terrorized my older cat when she was alive, I imagine he'd do the same to a cat like Allie or Cuma.

  5. She looks like such a sweetheart. I hope someone sees her for the gem that she is very, very soon.
