She receives creative input from the Real Cats and clerical assistance from She of Little Talent (old SoLT, a.k.a. Roby Sweet).

Cat of the Week: Oliver

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.

#seniorcat #specialneedscat #adoptme #bmorehumaneToday we’re featuring a cat we have featured before. Oliver is an 8-year-old gentleman who is so sweet and laid-back and loves getting attention. He also enjoys cat beds, watching birds, and playing with catnip. He thinks food is pretty awesome too!

Oliver is a diabetic kitty who needs to get insulin shots twice a day. Some people are reluctant to adopt a cat with diabetes, so he needs someone really special to give him a new forever home. Maybe some people are just afraid of having to give a cat shots, but it is so easy to learn and do. Even old SoLT has done it, on her mom’s old cat (who, by the way, lived many happy years while on insulin). Oliver is really good about getting his shots too.

Oliver is currently in a foster home and is adoptable through the Baltimore Humane Society. He first came into the shelter way back in December 2015 (that’s been years, people!). Wouldn’t it be great to see him settled into a new forever home?

A generous donor has sponsored Oliver’s adoption fee.

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!

  3. What a handsome guy! Insulin shots are usually pretty easy ... though I might eat those words one day.

  4. I did 2 years of insulin shots too with Angel Tara! It really isn't as scary as people think.

  5. I wish I could adopt him, how sad that he has been there so long.
