Cat of the Week: Smudge in Baltimore

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.

Cat of the Week: Smudge #baltimorehumane #catadoption #adoptme

This week, say hello to Smudge. Smudge is 7 years old, and some people say he looks just like a lion! He has medium-length fur, and he enjoys being brushed. He also likes to play with toys, and of course he enjoys tasty treats. Smudge is a sweet gentleman looking for a new family in this new year.

Smudge 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. Those tiny points near his ears make him extra handsome.

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

  3. I wanted to adopt older cats, but The Hubby thought kittens were best...to train them! So, we ended up with two boys who are 1-1/2 years old...guess that sorta counts as mature but still kitteny? And Smudge is so handsome!

  4. Smudge is cute! Good thing Nellie er Queen Penelope sent me to my Mommy and now she has me as she is partial to older cats!
