Cats of the Week: Milly May and Spencer

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 Milly May and Spencer!

This week we’re featuring a bonded pair we've shared before, but they're still waiting for that special someone who'll take them both home. Milly May is an 8-year-old female, and her brother Spencer is an 8-year-old male. They’re both pretty laid back, and they are really into comfy beds and head rubs. Sometimes the simple things are the best, right? They have lived with a child and a dog before, so they could make great cats for a family. 

These two must be adopted together, which means if you bring them into your home, you'll be opening up two spaces in the shelter. Plus, two cats are way more fun than one cat. Watching the cats' interactions can often be better than television!

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!


  1. OH! Spencer and Milly May are adorable!

  2. Sweet, who'd want to break up a pair like these?

  3. I hope these sweeties get their forever home together soon.

  4. What a couple! Hard to say no to those faces :)

  5. They are both so precious. I hope someone takes them home very, very soon.
