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 “Daria and Duffy” the cats.

Here is some information on these two kitties from the Humane Society of Ocean City:

“Daria is a beautiful female DSH Calico kitty with soft, silky fur and a pink button nose!

Duffy is a handsome male DSH black & brown Tabby-cat with plush & fuzzy fur and a wonderfully plump belly!

They are siblings and can be adopted together, but it is not required.

They are about 15 months of age, S/N, and UTD.

They were discovered with their mother in the crawl space of a building last fall and it took several days of trapping to catch them.

They arrived at the HSOC in April of this year after having lived in a foster home for months learning to socialize with humans and adjust to domestic life.

They are both a bit shy at first, but warm easily with a patient person, then they are quite the little snuggle-buggies!

Duffy is a bit more outgoing than Daria, but both of them enjoy belly-rubs and hiney-scratches and ear massages!"
