When we brought Rufus home to keep Mickey Mouser company,

Little Momma Fir came to PAWS with her three kittens. Her babies are not quite ready for Prime Time, but she’s ready to go!

David is more comfortable with other cats. This is pretty tabby Delta.
The staff and volunteers at PAWS have all fallen in love with Philomena.
Being smitten with a kitten or cat is a frequent occurrence if you spend any time at the shelter… but Philomena really is the sweetest most affectionate cat!
Last Fall, Apricat was busy raising her last litter of kittens at a very nice home for unwed lady cats (fostered by a volunteer at PAWS). She’s about five years old now, so it’s definitely time to retire!

Despite being blind from birth, it’s amazing to see her running, pouncing, and playing with wild kitten energy.
Her brother Jon Snow has some sight in one eye. They are such a sweet and friendly pair!
