This week’s adoptable pet is another one of Animal Care Technician Sarah Collins’ dorm fosters.

Meet Charlotte: a one-year-old black and white cat available for adoption through the Humane Society of Kent County.

Charlotte arrived at the Humane Society pregnant with kittens, although she was still very young herself.

“She’s pretty much a teenage mother,” Collins said. “All of her kittens have found homes now so it’s her turn.”

Although she is young and petite, she does not have a high amount of energy.

“Charlotte is a very low key cat. I haven’t heard her meow once,” Collins said. “She enjoys sleeping on a pillow near my head in bed.”

Charlotte enjoys cuddles but also is content having her own space.

“She honestly is the perfect dorm room cat. She’s so quiet and laid back,” Collins said. “Charlotte is perfectly content with staying in my room.”

Her other hobbies include playing withfeather wand toys and hiding in drawers.

“She prefers a calm environment,” Collins said. “So she’s so much more content here than she was at the shelter.”

Charlotte’s beautiful personality shines through her physical appearance, too.

“She looks like a cat model with her long hair and adorable tiny face,” Collins said.

Her small size also helps her bright yellow-green eyes pop.

“My boyfriend likes to tease Charlotte and call her a skunk because she has such a fluffy black and white tail. But she’s adorable,” Collins said.

“Charlotte gets along with other animals just fine and would be easy to incorporate into any home,” Collins said. “I really love her. I’m surprised she hasn’t been adopted yet.”

If anyone in the Chestertown community, WC faculty and staff members, or even students with families are interested in rescuing Charlotte, please contact the Humane Society of Kent County at 410-778-3648 or by emailing

Additionally, the Humane Society is currently especially full with cats and always appreciates the efforts of Washington College students with volunteering at the shelter. The Humane Society is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
