When Milo came to PAWS, he was unkempt, battle scarred and fierce. It was months before he realized that he’d hit the jackpot. First we had to continually remind him that humans could be trusted. It was a long process and emails went out among the staff and volunteers celebrating every mark of progress.
And boy, did he make progress! He became the calmest, sweetest lap cat who never willingly ended a brushing session. All the other cats in his room wanted to be near him.
And this week, two years later, it finally happened… the moment we’ve all dreamed of. Milo has left us for a real home of his own.

Pretty eleven year old Penelope has happily settled into her temporary home at PAWS.
To her, any stranger is a new friend. It’s a personality trait that will help Penelope get adopted soon!
May I introduce my candidate for Shelter Hunk: nine year old Sydney.
This gorgeous boycat has been at PAWS for over a month. With his outgoing friendly personality, I’m thinking that he won’t be at the shelter much longer.
Chi-Lan came to PAWS around the same time. She’s a three year old Siamese Sealpoint and has already left the shelter for her new home!
Seven year old Tai has been at the shelter since last March. She’s a lovely cat, ready for a new home.
Tai looks like the cat in the Fancy Feast advertisements. But no crystal food dish is needed! Just a loving heart and gentle hand.
This is my last blog post for 2012. Thank you for visiting Shelter-Cats and Happy New Year!
Shy Matt lurked while the other cats were brushed.
Minnie bonded with her favorite blanket.
Lenny and Tony rested after running laps around their room.
Just another day at the shelter.
Thinking of happier days?
This pretty girl was found as a stray and brought to PAWS this Summer. Barbra is shy but really very sweet. She would like to be someone’s only cat and would blossom in a home of her own.
She’s about three years old, healthy, and ready for a second chance at love.
Another New Hammock!
This week Joanne McG., PAWS dog volunteer and shelter seamstress, made a hammock for Elmer. It’s a cosy fleece design with a Tigger pattern. Elmer is very happy. Thanks, Joanne!
I made a second hammock this week and brought it to PAWS wondering where to put it. I looked for a wide cage inhabited by two cats. When I installed it in Pan and Persephone’s cage, Persephone immediately jumped up and made herself comfortable.
But, she made it pretty clear to brother Pan that it was all hers. Kosmo and Kramer are quite often found snuggled up together in their hammock. At least it gives the caged cats a little more room.
Kosmo and Kramer
Either of these cat pairs would make a wonderful instant family. They’re all healthy and sweet tempered. You can see how beautiful they are!
