Every Thursday morning at 7:15am on the Lite Rock Morning Show, the Humane Society of Ocean City brings in the new Lite Rock Pet of the Week.

If you are thinking about adding a pet to your family, please consider adopting from the Humane Society of Ocean City, a no-kill shelter recognized as one of the nation’s top ten animal shelters.

All of the animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped before adoption. All animals also receive an Alumni Card which entitles them to a 10% lifetime discount for veterinary services at the Humane Society of Ocean City clinic.

This week we met “Princess” the cat.

Here is some information on Princess from the Humane Society of Ocean City:

Princess is a striking 4 year old brown/black/orange torbie with a white chest and paws.

A torbie is usually a colorful combination of a tortoiseshell and calico cat. It is a relatively new term used in the animal world to describe a cat that's neither a classic calico or torti.

Princess was surrendered to the HSOC after developing a behavioral issue in her home due to a neighbor's outside cat. As queen of the castle, Princess did not appreciate a feline intruder invading her territory even though he was outside and she was inside always.

Princess is a sweet, affectionate girl that prefers the company of woman to men but is still fine with both. She is good with dogs, calm children and enjoys curling up in a lap. She has no problem letting you know her needs as she is very vocal.

To ease prospective adopters minds, her spraying issue was behavioral and was rectified as soon as the outside cat was gone. A home with no other cats or strays outside will eliminate any chance of the behavior returning. This sweet girl deserves a second chance. Please consider Princess as an addition to your family."
