WCTR Pet of the Week








In modern society, we are often warned about the dangers of unfamiliar people, with good reason. But sometimes it can restore one’s faith in the world to connect with strangers, and Moore, this week’s Pet of the Week, is a big believer in the power of free hugs.
Moore is a delightful two-year-old tabby who brings the definition of “chill” back to the Animal Care Shelter for Kent County. This sweet girl is quiet, but absolutely loves attention. Come up to her kennel gate and she’ll pace and mew excitedly, and scratches behind the ear will inevitably result in a happy flip-over. Her dark streaks and stripes flare into subtle brindle on her ankles. In the tiny tufts of black fur on the tips of her ears, and the rippling yellow-green of her eyes, one could find echoes of her wilder cousins–a cougar creeping on a mountainside, a bobcat stalking through snowy forest. But here, Moore is all soft purrs and sighs. She is endlessly content to perch on the edge of her kennel and gaze out over the other cats as they play with visitors.
Moore has been chilling in the cat room of ASCKC for several months now after her last owner surrendered her. Her perfect home would give her the respectful space to be herself, but also offer endless love, affection and neck scratches when she’s in the mood. She would thrive in any setting as relaxed as she is, including with easy-going cats, dogs, and kids.
Moore is more than ready to find her forever home. This laid-back lady would brighten any space with her calm love, and can’t wait to bring her gentle affection to a permanent patch of sunlight and a family who cherishes her trust.
Are you ready to meet this lovely lady? The Animal Care Shelter is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11am-4pm, and any questions, comments, and concerns can be called in at 410-778-3648 or emailed to us at!




Meet Ernie! (or Ernest when he's being ornery)
This handsome young man is a domestic shorthair orange and white tabby who was brought to us as a stray at the beginning of June. Ernie is only around 2 years young, and we assume he must have had a family in the past because he is sweet as sugar! Whatever he's been through in his short life, he knew exactly what to do, because he showed up right at one of our employees doorsteps. Immediately after we took him in we knew he was special. It's very rare that we get a stray cat in as loving as Ernie (he even loves belly rubs!) He will follow you around and rub against your legs until you just have to give him attention. And he still has the spunk of a young kitten! He loves to play, with other cats and his human friends. He's even developed a habit of batting at you when you walk by him. He really just wants your attention all of the time, and he's not afraid to let it be known! Ernie is one of our cats that has FIV, which is just an immunodeficiency disorder in cats which essentially means his immune system isn't as strong as your average cat. That doesn't mean he isn't happy and healthy, and it certainly doesn't mean he can't live with other cats! On the contrary, we believe Ernie would be happiest in a home with a kitty brother or sister. We even think he could get used to living with a dog! We'd love for Ernie to find a family that can give him all the love and attention he deserves.Learn more by visiting or calling 410-827-7178
