Posey Likes to Give kisses – 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.
Here is some information on Posey from the Humane Society of Ocean City:
“Posey is a large framed black, brown and orange tortoiseshell cat. She is short haired and has striking yellow-green eyes. She's approximately 5 years old.
Posey was surrendered to the HSOC by her owner. He had been hospitalized recently and found out he was going to have future extended hospital stays. According to him, he could not find adequate care for Posey and her 2 other feline friends, Miles and Penny and felt he could no longer provide for them properly.
All 3 cats were previous HSOC adoptees. Posey was only 3 weeks old when she originally was admitted to the shelter, along with her mother and her 3 siblings. She was adopted when she was about 12 weeks old and lived happily in her home for the last 5 years. It is no wonder she was so frightened for the first week of arriving at the shelter and hid under her bed and wanted little to do with humans. HSOC staff finally won her over and she warmed up. Now she kisses and loves to be petted. She still burrows under her bed at times but comes out for attention regularly.
Posey is friendly and affectionate. She will most likely take some time to get used to new surroundings so patience is a must. A calm, quiet household would be best but some activity would be okay too. Posey has been with other cats but would probably prefer to be the only cat. She has never been with dogs as far as we know but a calm, cat friendly dog may be okay."
