Puffy came to PAWS with a “bite of unknown origin”.
Because there’s no way to know whether a stray cat has had a rabies vaccination, he was put in a strict quarantine.
“Connecticut rabies guidance requires six months of strict confinement for an unvaccinated domestic animal with a wound of unknown origin.”
Only staff members were allowed to handle him, but they gave him a lot of love!
Carmella is a cat you can’t ignore.
She’s got a huge personality and presence, with a touch of calico attitude.
Here she is at the door, eagerly awaiting admirers.
Or maybe analyzing the workings of the door handle.
Just outside the shelter, there is a healthy crop of catnip flourishing in the Spring sunshine.
Volunteers snip a few sprigs for the shelter cats on their way into the building.
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.
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…
Safety in Numbers
We were doing a small but noisy catification project in the hall outside the kittens’ room last week. When we looked in to see if they minded the construction noise, this is what we saw.
PAWS still has many charming and friendly kittens waiting for homes!
Yes, eight year old Sophie is still at PAWS waiting for a home.
I thought you’d like to see what she’s been up to lately…
Introducing the lovely five year old Bridgit who has been at PAWS since November.
Is that a catnip mouse you have there, Bridgit?
Yes, I guess it’s a catnip mouse.
