I’m a big fan of the artist Diane Hoeptner. I subscribe to her blog, and offered the use my photographs of PAWS cats as subject matter. And look, it’s Buddy!
Here’s the photograph she used for reference from this blog post (CLICK HERE).
Unfortunately Buddy is still waiting at PAWS. He doesn’t like other cats and spends much of his day closed in a cage. When it’s his turn to come out, he’s a frisky happy cat. I have a fantasy that someone will adopt Buddy AND purchase his portrait.
Diane certainly has a way with cats! Visit her blog HERE.
Little Orange Annie is in the foreground and her brother Jack O’Lantern is in the back.
Annie is a very affectionate playful girl.
Strrreetch! “Naptime is over, pet me please!”
Jack is friendly but shy around new people. They get along nicely with the other cats in their room. Annie and Jack are a year and a half old and must be adopted together. They are available at PAWS.
Miss Piggy is eight years old and comes to PAWS as an “owner release” cat. Her information card says that she is independent and has a dominant personality. From what we can tell, so far she has expressed her preference to be an only cat.
Miss Piggy, like her namesake, is a diva.
She’s described as a low energy, couch potato.
But give her a mouse toy and stand back… this girl wants to play!
Little orange and white Jesse James was adopted this week. Happy Trails, Jesse!
His sister, calico Annie Oakley, is waiting for her turn.
Yankee (on the right) and Brian have become very good friends. We quite often see them cuddled together looking like they are having a good chat between naps. Brian’s brother Roger is also in the room, as is Yankee’s sibling Doodle, but these two seem to prefer each other’s company. I wonder what they are talking about?
Maybe they are discussing Geraldo, the most recent cat in the room and also, at nine months, the youngest.
All of these cats get along beautifully. They have a room with a window, lots of toys and visitors, and regular meals. But they don’t have a special person to love. Could it be you? Visit them at PAWS.
He was living on the streets with a terribly damaged tail before he was brought to PAWS. Liam must have been in a lot of pain and his tail could not be saved. After six weeks in the PAWS medical area recovering from surgery, he’s living large in Cat Room #5 with a bunch of congenial cats.
Liam has graduated from the School of Hard Knocks and is content to relax on the couch and receive admirers. After everything he’s been through, Liam is amazingly friendly and even-tempered.
He just needs a loving forever home to complete his Cinderfella story.
Liam is also featured at our friend’s blog – Please visit Animal Shelter Volunteer Life.
