Cat of the Week: Star in Baltimore

Meet our Cat of the Week

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 an older cat, and help them enjoy the best years of their life.

The need is even more urgent in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. The Baltimore Humane Society will be accepting homeless animals from areas affected by the flooding. So many of us feel pulled to help in any way we can.… Well, if you adopt today, you’ll be opening a space in the shelter for one of those Harvey animals. If our Cat of the Week doesn’t hit the mark for you, check out the other awesome adoptable animals at the Baltimore Humane Society!

Adopt Star!

And now, please say hello to Star, an all-white kitty who is 8 years old. She is quite talkative and very affectionate, though she is known to be independent too. We think the shape of her face is so pretty! Star loves to curl up on someone’s lap, so if you're dreaming of a lap cat, she could be your girl. She has lived with another cat and with older kids before. Her hobbies include scratching posts and little fuzzy mice.

Star 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!

Are you a dog lover? (It’s okay; we understand if you are—sort of.) Well, if you love dogs and are in the Baltimore area, make plans now to attend DogFest 2017 on Saturday, September 16. You can get discounted tickets online through September 14.


  1. I hope this beauty gets her forever home soon.

  2. if I weren't looking at another possible number 11...

  3. What a beautiful girl! She's going to be the STAR of someone's life.
    {Sorry ... I couldn't resist :) }
