Signs of Spring

eSpring

Yes, that picture was taken on the first official day of Spring, not that Mother Nature pays any attention to the calendar…
By the way, that’s a garden ornament in the background – not a real cat!

Home for the Holidays

eSydney

Beautiful owl-eyed Sydney is 10 years old. Sydney is definitely on Santa’s Nice List.

eMarlee

Marlee is a friendly gentle cat. At 9 years old she’s done with all that annoying kittenish misbehavior. She just needs a friend to cuddle with.
Sydney and Marlee are waiting at PAWS.

EMouser

And here’s our own Mickey Mouser (failed foster cat). He had a rough start in life as a tiny underweight feral kitten rescued by PAWS volunteers. He’s wishing a warm safe home for everycat.

Sweet Sixteen

eFeedMe

It seems like yesterday that an adorable tiny tabby kitten with ENORMOUS paws wandered through our front yard.

How lucky we were that Mother Nature delivered him to us!

This year Tommie had 6 teeth removed, and we continue to give him fluids twice a week to keep his kidneys working. Through it all, he’s our role model for calm acceptance and enjoyment of life.

I hold his paw, and he holds my heart.
Happy Birthday, Tommie!

eMickHat

Mickey Mouser says, “If it’s Tommie’s birthday, why am I the one stuck wearing the hat?”

Look what we got from the generous people at 1-800-PetMeds!
No, not adorable young cats. We already have plenty of those at PAWS

ePetMeds

We got vitamins, dental wipes, hairball meds, and plenty of other supplies. It turns out that they have things that were opened for photo shoots, or returned, or squished in shipping, that they can’t sell.
We have cats and dogs that need TLC.
It’s a perfect match!

Thank you 1-800-PetMeds.

Hanging in the Hammock

hammock
Here’s Brian and his brother Buster again – you met them a few weeks ago. Tabby Brian is cautious but curious. He checks to see if Buster likes you first… But Buster is so affectionate and outgoing; he seems to like everyone!
Hammock-2
When I cleaned their cage, the disruption sent them up to their hammock. It’s harder to find homes for cats when there are two that can’t be parted. But the comfort they bring each other while they wait is very sweet to see.

Buster and Brian

eBandB2
I sat on the floor in front of their open cage and made some cat-friendly chirping noises. Slowly gray Buster came out, inspected me, and climbed into my lap.
Buster rolled, stretched, purred, and made himself at home. When shy tabby Brian saw that it was safe, he came out and laid beside me for some petting too.
These one year old boys are just sweethearts – and they’re available for adoption at PAWS.
