Rory is a fe­male cal­ico kit­ten and one of a lit­ter of six kit­tens born here at the shel­ter that we call our ‘Gil­more Girls’ – named so be­cause we knew they’d be­come adopt­able just as the ex­cite­ment for the new Gil­more Girl re­union show was re­ally build­ing. Rory is def­i­nitely the most ad­ven­tur­ous of the kit­tens of the lit­ter, the most likely to wan­der astray when roam­ing out and about – she’s very bold and very curious. She and her sib­lings were fos­tered af­ter birth, so she is very well so­cial­ized and ready to find her new home. To see Rory, visit AWL fro 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tues­day through Sun­day at the An­i­mal Wel­fare League of Queen Anne’s County, 201 Clay Drive, Queen­stown. Call 410-827-7178 or email adopt@awlqac.org to learn more.
