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 “Rose” the cat…

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

Rose is a beautiful solid orange domestic long haired cat. She's approximately one -year old. Rose came to the hsoc as a stray with five kittens. All of her kittens were plump little bundles of fur.

Rose had been a good mom, even though nutrition was hard to come by as a stray, she managed to keep them clean and healthy. Most of them have since been adopted while Rose still awaits her forever home. It's believed that she was left behind when tenants moved out of their winter rental in the spring.

Neighbors were feeding her but were unaware she had babies until they spotted her nursing under a building. They scooped them all up and brought them to the hsoc. Rose is friendly and affectionate.

She is still growing in her luxurious coat and is more of a medium hair at this time but she will inevitably be a long haired cat. She's good with other cats and most children dogs are unknown. Rose would be a wonderful addition to almost any home.
