Cat of the Week: Hopey in Baltimore

Cat of the Week

November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month! There’s no better time to welcome an older cat into your home.

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.

Adopt Hopey! Baltimore Humane Society

Today, we’re introducing Hopey, a 7-year-old black-and-white lady who has such unique markings on her cute face. We think she looks sort of like her paw slipped while she was applying mascara around her right eye. And she has a cute little stump tail too! Hopey had trouble adjusting to all the stresses of the shelter, but thankfully she has been able to go to a foster home where she can settle in in peace. She does like to snuggle on someone’s lap, and she enjoys getting butt scratches. She has lived with a dog and a child before.

Hopey is currently in a foster home through 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. Oh Hopey, you are as cute as the day is long!

  2. Her markings are so cute!! We're so glad she's able to be in a nice home while waiting for her permanent one.

  3. Hopey is adorable. I hope she gets her forever home soon.

  4. What a beautiful girl! I can't imagine who would give her up!

  5. When my Mommy adopted me, Marvelous, she had been going to adopt a senior animal. I am very happy, she did pick me but I think if she had seen Hopey, she might have picked her!
