We fell in love with Sweetie Pie during the three weeks she stayed with us. We were sad to say goodbye, but very happy that she was adopted into a wonderful family.

This weekend I met her brothers:
eAidenand Aiden.

Their Foster mother says:
“Aiden (white stripe on face) & Joshua (white dot on face) are a pair of fun-loving brothers! These handsome young men were living in an outdoor colony but, after they were caught, it quickly became clear that they were much too friendly to live a short uncertain life outside in a colony!

Pick them up and they start purring and making ‘air muffins’. They love playing together, but are also happy to hang with you one on one. They enjoy exploring all corners of their foster home and don’t hide at all. They happily interact with the resident cats although the resident cats don’t quite feel the same way!
Aiden gives head butts and when it’s nap time he can often be found under the covers with just his head peeking out.
They love all toys but feather and string toys are purr-sonal favorites!

They are four months old, already neutered, rabies vaccinated, and have received their 1st distemper shot. They have tested negative for Fiv and Felv, and are microchipped. Both are well litter box trained.

In short – they are ready to pack their toys and go home with you!

Can you welcome these two handsome young men into your home and make a difference in 18 lives? (9 lives x 2)”

Question: What’s wrong with this picture?
Answer: Kittens, like Oliver and Twist above, growing up in cages.

There are so many beautiful and talented, brave and loving kittens at PAWS. If you are in Connecticut, please come to PAWS and open your heart!

During PAWS’ exciting Kitten Shower event you won’t have to open your wallet quite so far.


If you are far away, check with your local shelter. At this time of the year most animal rescue organizations are overflowing with homeless babies and adult cats.



It was a peaceful Sunday morning at PAWS.

Here comes Doodle’s brother Yankee wanting a turn in the hammock.

It sort of holds two cats…


Maybe not too comfortably…


It was a peaceful Sunday morning at PAWS.

Yankee and his sister Doodle are happy at the shelter. It’s the only home they have known in their three years. They get along well with other cats, live in a room with a window for bird watching, and enjoy the shelter cuisine. This shy pair came to PAWS when they were nine weeks old around the fourth of July in 2011. They have no idea how much sweeter their lives could be in a home of their own. I sure hope they find out soon.

Sweetie Pie – Week 3


Speaking of active and playful… We are fostering Sweetie Pie at our house and she’s zooming around the room as I type. Here she is taking a break, counting her toys. She’s on Petfinders- CLICK HERE.



Until I got some nice “Happy Gotcha Day” messages for Mickey Mouser, I had totally forgotten that this is the 4th anniversary of the day he arrived at our house. We were supposed to foster him until there was room at PAWS, but, as they say, life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans.

This is Mickey helping us put away a load of warm clean laundry.

Coincidentally, we are busy fostering for the second time…

Sweetie Pie – Week 3


Is it just me, or is this kitten getting cuter?

Here’s another very short video clip – CLICK HERE!

Sweetie Pie is a gentle 3 month old kitten. She’s shy until she knows you, but once she does, she gives kisses and head bumps. She loves to play and purrs up a storm.
Sweetie Pie hasn’t encountered any other cats in foster, but she seems very interested in the glimpses she’s gotten, and not at all fearful or hissy. Most likely will do well with other cats. Her litter box habits are very tidy.
Sweetie Pie would do well in a quiet home, due to her feral kitten-hood, she is startled easily. But, get out a toy, and she recovers quickly!
