We are pleased to announce that we have a new cat!
In mid July, I featured a cat (Ely) who had been found living in a feral colony. He was trapped and neutered and had his ear tipped before anyone realized that he wasn’t feral at all. Rick and I went to meet him and offered to foster this extremely friendly young cat. We thought that Mickey Mouser needed some feline companionship…
You may have seen Merritt here in previous posts, but she has never looked so contented and pleased with her surroundings. Chewy.com generously donated two of these Catit Bench Scratchers to PAWS. I emailed them, sent pictures of our red themed room, and, within a few days they sent the scratchers.
Here’s Scratchy flirting from his nest inside a cat tree. He’s a ten year male in need of a good home (and a new name!).
Mindy (top) and Bunny thought that they could avoid the antics of young Graycie by staying up high on the shelves. They were surprised when she levitated up to visit them.
Meanwhile in Cat Room #7…
Ernie: “What do you think they’re doing, Merritt?”
Merritt: “I don’t know, Ernie, but they’ve been hammering and sawing and making a terrible racket for a month. Now we have these new windows, but I don’t see any cats in there.”
Once upon a time (five years ago), a momcat and her kittens lived along this patch of bushes and brambles between a fairly busy road and a dog park.
A kind volunteer at PAWS named Brett learned how to set up a trap and made many attempts to catch the little family and bring them to safety.
Nellie, on the left, is the official greeter in Cat Room #4. Whenever someone comes in, she is right there chatting and waiting for head rubs. That’s her roommate Charlotte on the right.
Welcome to Cat Room #8.
This small room (about 8X10) is our latest catification project at PAWS. Here you see it empty and freshly painted.
