Sometimes it takes a while to adjust to shelter life.
Imagine you are a cat.
Maybe you haven’t been out of your home for your entire life, except for vet visits. Suddenly your family is gone and you are in a strange new place surrounded by unfamiliar smells, cats, and the sound of dogs barking.
When this ten year old cat came to PAWS, he was very unhappy. The staff gave him the name “Señor Crankypants”.
After a few days, he learned that he was in a safe place with a lot of admirers. He is actually an easy-going playful guy who loves people and other cats.
Señor Crankypants is cranky no more. I hope his good humored personality and funny name will help him get adopted soon.
That phrase popped into my head when I took this picture. “Sitting in the catbird seat” means “sitting pretty”. Also “When used in the sense of a lookout, it can be considered a euphemism for the nautical term “crow’s nest” that is used on sailing ships.”
Noname is certainly sitting pretty. She’s on the lookout from the new wall hammock built and installed by my husband, Rick.
There are two new shelves and two wall “nesting boxes” in Cat Room #5 too!
Catification is moving along nicely at PAWS. Thank you, Rick!
Soft beautiful coat, friendly calm disposition, Astro gets along with everybody.
Astro is waiting for a special somebody at PAWS.
I’m not sure which cat this is, but he or she comes gift wrapped!
Harlequin has a superabundance of personality and energy.
She’s a striking two year old dilute calico.
If you’re looking for a playmate and exercise partner, PAWS has a cat for you!
The toy Harlequin is enjoying was made by 1st grade Daisy Troop #50613 from Springdale School in Stamford CT. The Girl Scouts made a big bag of these fleece toys for PAWS and the cats love them.
Thank you, girls!
What a sweet little cat!
Noko Marie is friendly, outgoing and playful.
She’s a one year old stray who learned to like people and distrust other cats somewhere. Petite Noko Marie would love to be someone’s One and Only.
It’s hard to imagine that she’ll be living at the shelter for very much longer.
