I took these pictures back in late May.
Mom Scarlet had given birth to three kittens at PAWS.
Now that I have your attention…
This is the adoption board at PAWS as of December 30. When they add a sheet to extend the list, you know it’s been a very good month.
Fortunately, it’s been a very good year for well over 700 cats and kittens!
Here are a few of the remarkable kittens who passed through the shelter this year:
Natasha was adopted from PAWS as a kitten four years ago.
Recently, she was returned because she was peeing outside of the litter box. She has gotten a clean bill of health from the shelter vet. Most likely, she was having territorial issues with stray cats around her previous home.
Gentle and shy, Natasha likes being brushed and enjoys a little nip in moderation.
A pet is a member of the family and when things go wrong, a pet parent has to do some research (starting with a visit to the vet), problem solving, and detective work to find a solution. There is a wealth of information on the web.
Imagine if bed wetting children were dropped off at an orphanage…
These sweethearts won’t be waiting at PAWS for long.
