Facts about Moonshadow

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Hello, I am quite pleased to meet you, allow me to formally introduce myself; my name is Moonshadow the debonair tuxedo cat. Okay, enough with the formality! You see, I was found in 2011 as a young kitten by a really nice lady. Sadly, she had to move and couldn’t take me with her. She asked a friend to help find me a new home. This friend called the AWLMC, and boy was I lucky that the intake team thought I was a very fine feline indeed! Don’t let my fancy suit fool you, I am anything but formal. I am a confident, playful, and determined cat. I enjoy being with grown-up people all of the time and get lonely if my humans are away all day every day. But, at the same time, I want to be the only pet in your home. Don’t worry, I don't have to be petted or held – I just want to hang out with you and be in the same room. I’m a great helper. I will sleep with you in bed at night. My preferred water source is the bathtub faucet, if you’re so inclined. And I’m a whiz at food puzzles for kitties. I dearly love to play and I initiate it myself. Count on a couple games of tag first thing in the morning and again just before bedtime. I also play with the Purrfect Leather Bouncer if you make it go Moonshadow speed…really fast! Milk jug rings can be entertaining and I love the cat nip banana. As you can see, sometimes I love to play hard and just like some kids, when I get too excited I start playing too rough. Consider me a work in progress that needs an experienced cat person as my new forever human. You will laugh and be entertained by some of my antics when I play. I also enjoy quiet time looking outside and watching the birds and squirrels. But most of all, I love my human companions. Stop by our shelter to meet me.

About Animal Welfare League-Montgomery County

About Our Shelter...

As many of you may already know, we have a mission: To enhance the lives of Montgomery County Maryland residents and animals through programs directed at education, adoption, animal shelter, and low cost spay/neuter. The AWLMC is committed to ending the euthanasia of adoptable animals in Montgomery County Maryland. With this in mind, we are partnering with the county shelter to help save the most at-risk animals. Currently, we are only working with cats. We hope to be able to add a dog program soon.

In order to save as many cats as possible, we have opened a no-kill shelter in Gaithersburg. We need your help in the form of direct financial donations and by volunteering your time. Our organization is strong and full of highly dedicated volunteers of all ages, backgrounds, professions and abilities. We are working together to save the lives of cats and kittens, to find them loving, forever homes and to have them spay/neutered. All of our cats and kittens are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

We are the Animal Welfare League of Montgomery County.

Our Adoption Process...

All members of the adopter's household should be present at the adoption.

For all adopters who rent their home, we must see a copy of the adopter's lease or rental agreement showing that pets are allowed.

Current adoption fees: $75 for adults (cats over 1 year old) and kittens.
All of our cats and kittens are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. We currently accept only check or cash.

Potential adopters are required to fill out an application and to be interviewed by an AWLMC adoption counselor.

We can request home visits or vet checks prior to approving anyone for adoption.

Upon approval, the adopter must sign an adoption contract.

Adopters must have proof of ID (a driver's license or other government issued identification).

We will follow up on our adoptions which can include e-mails, phone calls, home visits, and vet checks.

These rules are subject to change.
