I took these pictures back in late May.
Mom Scarlet had given birth to three kittens at PAWS.
She really had her paws full! Off they went to foster, where the little family got tender loving care until everybody was ready for adoption.
Two year old Hope hasn’t had an easy time in her brief life. She was returned to the shelter because the other cat in her adoptive home refused to accept her.
Puffy came to PAWS with a “bite of unknown origin”.
Because there’s no way to know whether a stray cat has had a rabies vaccination, he was put in a strict quarantine.
“Connecticut rabies guidance requires six months of strict confinement for an unvaccinated domestic animal with a wound of unknown origin.”
Only staff members were allowed to handle him, but they gave him a lot of love!
Tinsel is an outgoing cat, interested in everything – except other cats.
Is this a mouse I see before me, its tail toward my mouth?
Come, let me clutch thee…
And here’s his roommate Vishnu.
You know how you can tell that the shelter’s adoptions have slowed?
These two sweethearts are still waiting.
These three year old bonded siblings were left behind when their people moved away. A kind neighbor rescued them and brought them to the shelter.
Twelve year old Maizy is a senior cat with a lot of love to give…
as long as there are no children, dogs, or other cats in the house.
She came to PAWS because she didn’t appreciate the attention of the small children in her family.
