When it was time to paint a picture for the wall nesting box in Cat Room #5
at PAWS, I decided to create one that would celebrate black cats.
The snow had stopped falling and it was time for staff and volunteers to slip slide up the driveway into PAWS. Mimi was waiting, basking in the warm sun.
When she first came to stay at PAWS, Lucy had a hard time adjusting to the shelter. With all the unfamiliar sounds, smells, and people, who could blame her?
We didn’t see much of Bagheera the first few weeks after he was left at PAWS by his owners. After a while he got used to the new sounds, smells, feline roommates, and people. When he emerged from his carpeted cubby we discovered that he’s a shy but very friendly boy who craves attention and affection.
You may have seen Merritt here in previous posts, but she has never looked so contented and pleased with her surroundings. Chewy.com generously donated two of these Catit Bench Scratchers to PAWS. I emailed them, sent pictures of our red themed room, and, within a few days they sent the scratchers.
Mindy (top) and Bunny thought that they could avoid the antics of young Graycie by staying up high on the shelves. They were surprised when she levitated up to visit them.
There has been a lot to celebrate at PAWS, in addition to the regular parade of kittens passing through the shelter on their way to happily-ever-afters.
Young Martina spent a lot of time hiding when she first came to the Lobby Room at PAWS. But not any more…
