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…
OK, I will now step off my soapbox and show you some cute kittens.
These sweethearts won’t be waiting at PAWS for long.
I could say something about their beauty, the joy and laughter they bring.
But, I think I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
Flowers are popping open, kittens, with and without Mommies, are appearing at the shelter.
This tiny tiger is thriving, defying all odds thanks to TLC from PAWS’ Cat Lady in Chief. Imagine, Ellen has been bottle feeding four Motherless kittens since they were a week old!
Elsewhere in the shelter…
Patch! Look out! We are being overrun with kittens!
Apricat heads for higher ground.
Oreo seems unfazed, but watches from the high wall hammock.
In the last blog post you met Jules; that’s him in the cubby. He has three sweet female roommates: Mimi and baby Diana (shown here), and River.
Mimi is a shy young girl, only a year old, but she does love to play!
Colorful, calico Maple has a bright inquisitive personality.
Ms. Minnie is a small cat, gentle and sweet.
She’s young – only a year and a half old.
