Cat of the Week: Tiny 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!

Today we’re introducing Tiny. He is a handsome gentleman with a gray coat and, despite his name, he is described as a large cat. Tiny is a male domestic shorthair/mix, and he is 7 years old. He had to come to the shelter because his guardian is ill and could no longer care for him. His former person wants him to find a person or family to love him. Tiny is an independent guy, but he does enjoy head rubs. He is pretty quiet and startles easily (the dryer and washing machine scare him), so he would probably do best in a fairly quiet home. He really loves a good cat bed! Tiny 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!

  2. I'm thinking that Tiny is gonna find his new furrever home soon, with that beautiful grey furrs of his!

  3. What a great feature! We hope Tiny's forever family is around the corner.

  5. How sad that his owner had to give him up. I hope he gets his forever home soon.
