eValerianMsP

Recently we won a generous selection of Valerian stuffed toys by entering a contest held by the charming and stunning kitty blogger, Cathy Keisha. They were made by the Bavarian Cat Toy company.
What’s in valerian, you might ask?
Wikipedia‘s answer: “Actinidine is a pyridine derivative found in the essential oil of valerian root and silver vine. Actinidine is a cat attractant, with effects like those of nepetalactone, the active compound found in catnip.”

The New Girls

eAdopted

When Molly and Annie went to their new homes, there were empty cages in Cat Room #1. But not for long!

Introducing the new girls:

eLucinda

Lucinda is the sweetest cat! Her right ear is folded down giving her a jaunty attitude. As soon as you open her cage, she just wants to give you love and kisses.

eBrownie3

Pretty Brownie isn’t as outgoing, yet. She’s still adjusting to the new room and roommates.

eBrownie2

She forgets to be shy when there’s a good toy to play with.

These two lovelies are available at PAWS.

Harlequin

eHarlequin

Harlequin has a superabundance of personality and energy.
She’s a striking two year old dilute calico.

eHarlequin3If you’re looking for a playmate and exercise partner, PAWS has a cat for you!

The toy Harlequin is enjoying was made by 1st grade Daisy Troop #50613 from Springdale School in Stamford CT. The Girl Scouts made a big bag of these fleece toys for PAWS and the cats love them.
Thank you, girls!
