Announcing a New Family Member

When you have a harmonious home, with two wonderful well adjusted cats like Mickey Mouser and Rufus the Red, why rock the boat?

I don’t know the answer to that question.
One Sunday morning, while doing my regular cleaning work at PAWS, I saw this eight month old polydactyl boy, and evidently lost my mind.
That afternoon, I suggested Rick take some measurements at the shelter for a catification project. And, by the way, want to see a cute cat?

Sunday in Black and White

evine2

This is Vine, a thirteen year old lovely female cat.

Evine

She’s friendly, calm, and sweet natured.

eVine3

Vine has luminous green eyes and extra toes. There’s a lot to love here at PAWS.

UPDATE: Vine has been adopted!

Meanwhile Sparkle has returned from the Beauty Parlor…

I’m sure Sparkle is much more comfortable after his lion cut.

Espark

He still has his catitude going on, and his magnificent whiskers!

Gratitude

eTomsCollar

On a Spring morning many years ago, when I was taking out the trash, I saw a tiny kitten with enormous paws in our front yard. I called to him, and he approached close enough for me to scoop him up.
When my husband Rick got home from work that night, I said, “Look what I found”.
Rick said, “I think that’s our kitten”.

And we lived happily ever after until last week.

BabyTom

We feel so fortunate that we found each other. I’m also grateful for your understanding and expressions of sympathy. They have been enormously comforting.

Thank you.

Tommie

eTom1

This should have been Tommie’s birthday blog post. He would have been 17 years old soon. Tommie had the biggest heart of any cat I’ve ever met. But his big heart was no longer able to pump all the fluids we were giving him to treat kidney disease, and we had to say good-bye yesterday.

eCatnipTom

He had those wonderful polydactyl feet and 24 sharp claws that he never used in anger.

eTom2

Tommie liked tummy rubs, chicken baby food, fresh catnip in the Spring. His purr motor had an instant “ON” switch.

Tommie loved life and he made our lives so much sweeter.

I’d like to thank his vets, very especially Dr. Patricia Doherty, and also Dr. Dave Santisi at A Cat’s Place in Norwalk CT for their kind and knowledgeable care.

Kitchen Cats

eBrigit

There are four cats living in the PAWS kitchen now. This is Brigit who comes with a pronunciation guide (“Bri-zheet”). She’s a very friendly polydactyl cat. The kitchen cats have lots of beds, a big window, and…

eMaxDrinks

they have their very own sink.
This is 11 year old Max who hopped up to get a drink while I was filling their water bowl.

Brigit is available for adoption, with her sister Bjork (that’s Bee-york). Max would love a home of his own. Personable Freddy (or should I say catable Freddy?) rounds out the residents of the kitchen.
