Cats of the Week: Milly May and Spencer

Cat of the Week badge

Each week in this space, we feature an older adult or 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 them enjoy the best years of their life!

Milly May and Spencer--Baltimore Humane SocietyThis week we’re introducing a bonded pair who must be adopted together. Milly May is an 8-year-old female, and her brother Spencer is an 8-year-old male. They’re both pretty laid back. Favorite things include comfy beds and head rubs. Sometimes the simple things are the best, right? They have lived with a child and a dog before.

Why get two cats? Well for one thing, they will keep each other company when you’re not home. For another, it’s fun to watch the interactions of two cats who are friendly with each other. Each pair will have their own dynamics, of course, but the Real Cats groom each other, play and chase other (and they’re 12 years old!), and yes, occasionally get into an, um, disagreement. It’s never boring. Finally, you know you’ve given a loving home to not one cat but two—and freed up two spaces in the shelter!

Milly May and Spencer are currently at the Baltimore Humane Society. Learn more about them here and 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!

Ravens fans!

The Baltimore Humane Society is raffling off 2017 season tickets! Raffle tickets start at $10. What a great way to support homeless pets in the Baltimore area while getting a chance to win those season tickets you’ve been dreaming of.


  1. What a beautiful/handsome duo! I can't imagine what would possess anyone to give these two up ... but I hope they find their happily ever afters soon. They deserve to be loved and cherished.

  2. The next time we add to our cat family, I would love to get a bonded pair. Two is definitely better than one!

  3. I pray that Spencer and Milly May find their 'real' furrever home soon!

  4. I hope these 2 cuties get their forever home soon- I am glad they have to stay together.

  5. What a sweet pair. At my local shelter just last week we had a bonded pair, 13 and 14 years old, one blind and one FIV positive, and a wonderful young woman adopted them!
