Welcome to OnMeowaukee Cat Week, a meowsome bunch of articles, photos, videos and an Instagram contest celebrating all aspects of Milwaukee cats. Sponsored by Bark N' Scratch Outpost, these seven days are dedicated to those creatures with nine lives who make our lives more paw-sitive.

There are a whopping 125 cats available for adoption at the Wisconsin Humane Society. To view them (and hopefully fall in love with one … or two … or …) click here

Moe is just one of the cats up for adoption at WHS, and he has a pretty great story, which was shared with me by the human society’s Angela Speed.

"Moe is a 4-year-old domestic shorthair who has now been in our care for 95 days. Before he came to WHS, he was living on the streets as a stray but desperately wanted a home to call his own. How do we know that? Because he was caught trying to jump into one woman's open windows several times! After searching the neighborhood for a potential owner, the kind woman brought him to us where he spent another seven days waiting for someone to claim him. After no one did, he went into our adoption program and has been waiting patiently ever since. 

Moe is affectionate, adorable, and an all-around wonderful cat. We suspect potential adopters are avoiding him simply because he likes to be pet on his own terms. When pet on his back or near his tail, Moe responds by pinning back his ears, rolling onto his back, and quickly swishing his tail (that's cat-speak for: "cease and desist.").

"When you listen to his body language and honor his request, Moe gives all sorts of happy head-butts and purrs up a storm. Since he came in as a stray, we don't know what his history with other cats or dogs is, but we do know he needs a home without kids under 8. As with all cats over one year of age, you get to name your own adoption fee for Moe, plus he's already been neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated!"
