Cat of the Week: Maggie in Baltimore

Cat of the Week badge

During the month of July, several shelters in our home state of Maryland are offering free cat and kitten adoptions through the Maryland 2000 program. Most of the young kittens won’t have any trouble getting a lot of attention, but there are also so many 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, and in July, all of our featured cats will be from Maryland. Mature cats make great companions, and unlike kittens, they (probably) won’t climb the curtains! Adopt a senior cat, and help them enjoy the best years of their life!

Adopt Maggie--Baltimore Humane Society
Meet Maggie! She is kind of shy, what with the stress of being in a shelter after living in a home for 10 years. Once she gets to know you, Maggie enjoys sitting in your lap and watching TV. She also enjoys cuddling and watching cat TV (a.k.a. the window). Maggie lived with another cat who bullied her, so she might be most comfortable as an only cat in a quiet home where she can just relax and be herself.

Maggie is currently at the Baltimore Humane Society. Learn more about her 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. Sweet Maggie looks as if she has something to say ! Hope she finds a forever home ASAP !

  2. With 10 cats here I'm not sure Maggie would be comfortable but she deserves an appreciative home.

  3. Maggie is a beauty. I hope she gets her forever home soon.

  4. What a beautiful girl! There was an 11 year old girl looking for a home from the same rescue as Ellie ... for 7 years, she happily got along with a dog. His death and the new puppy caused her to stop using the litter box and her family surrendered her. I HATE that people do that. As soon as it's inconvenient, they get rid of the cat. I'm sorry for the rant - I have no idea why this beauty was surrendered, but I can bet it was by no fault of her own. She deserves love and happiness just like every other magnificent feline.

  5. I agree 100%, Momma Kat (see comment)! They don't turn over the new puppy...just the 'old' cat. Grrrr!!!!!! Not to be negative, but Maggie's photo really isn't very flattering. Wishing her the bestest of luck, and am sure her REAL furrever home is just around the corner!

  6. She's so cute, someone is bound to want to take her home! I've always wanted a gray cat like that, I love a smooth gray coat. Maybe someday.

  7. Just from her picture you can see she has quite a personality! So sad that she'd found herself homeless after 10 years :(

  8. Sorry we are so late with this but thank you for your comforting words on the loss of our sweet Ellie. We are heartbroken.
