Cat of the Week: Ryan in Baltimore

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 Ryan the Cat--Baltimore HumaneToday we’re introducing Ryan. He is a big, quiet guy who is 11 years old. Ryan was a lap cat in his previous home. He can be a little shy with new people, but once he gets to know you a little bit, he loves head rubs and chin rubs. What a great friend he would make for someone!

Ryan is currently at the Baltimore Humane Society. Learn more about him here.

Can’t adopt? You can still help! Check out Sammy’s Cat Necessities Fund, which provides money for everyday and medical needs of cats at the Baltimore Humane Society. You can also make a general donation or sponsor a particular animal on this page. Every little bit helps!


  1. I am so sorry that your human declawed you, Ryan, but I will pray that your true furrever home is just around the corner!

  2. Such a cutie, I hope he gets a forever home soon.

  3. Kittens are adorable, but these days I think I'd be happier with a bit older cat anyway if we get another. Ryan is a very handsome guy!
