Playful Penelope is only about a year old. She can be a bit shy just at first, not surprising in a cat who was brought to PAWS as a stray.
She warms up quickly and enjoys head rubs before returning to mouse toy domination.
Won’t you come visit charming Penelope?
And now introducing Jack…
Rick and I are always on the lookout for cats when we travel.
We encountered this big boy striding along a street in Barcelona.
He is a sculpture created by the artist Botero.
Rick spotted a distant cousin of our Rufus the Red in the Alhambra.
And here’s a lovely calico.
Believe it or not, our favorite animal siting wasn’t a cat!
Anybody looking for a friendly four year old calico girl?
She is very pretty and an excellent communicator. Gabby always lets you know when the petting session is over. She would be happy to be your one and only cat.
Colorful, calico Maple has a bright inquisitive personality.
What a cute and talented young cat!
One year old Liza is very good at playing fetch. I wish you could hear her happy chirps as she runs after the purple mouse and brings it right back for another round.
Liza is playful, friendly, and affectionate.
Check out her friend Belana:
There have been so many wonderful young cats at PAWS this year,
friendly and well mannered.
On the stairs…
“You do realize that you’re upside down, right?”
This is Peek-A-Boo who ended up at the shelter because her person was too ill to care for her. She’s a lovely 13 year old calico getting lots of love and affection from staff and volunteers at PAWS.
At the other end of the age spectrum…
