Daisy and Gatsby, a gorgeous sister and brother, are still waiting at PAWS.
We are surprised that they haven’t been scooped up and taken home!
They are playful, friendly, and get along fine with other cats.
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?
This is Vine, a thirteen year old lovely female cat.
She’s friendly, calm, and sweet natured.
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.
He still has his catitude going on, and his magnificent whiskers!
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.
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.
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.
He had those wonderful polydactyl feet and 24 sharp claws that he never used in anger.
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.
