Cat of the Week: Rocky in Baltimore

Cat of the Week

Is there any better way to start the new year than with a new cat? We don’t think so!

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 Rocky, 9-yr-old male domestic shorthair, orange tabby, Baltimore Humane Society

This week we’re introducing Rocky, a handsome orange tabby fellow. Rocky is 9 years old and likes to be the center of attention (meaning he’d prefer to be an only pet). He is quiet and independent, though he will climb into your lap for a nice snuggle when he feels like it. His hobbies include feather wand toys. He sounds like a great guy to spend a winter evening with!

Rocky 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!


  1. Such a handsome boy, I hope he gets his forever home soon.

  2. Rocky, here's hoping that your true furrever home is just around the corner!

  3. Oh my, isn't he a handsome one! I would have a hard time leaving that shelter without him.

  4. Rocky looks like a real wonderful guy! I am purraying that he finds his forever home soon!
