Natasha was adopted from PAWS as a kitten four years ago.
Recently, she was returned because she was peeing outside of the litter box. She has gotten a clean bill of health from the shelter vet. Most likely, she was having territorial issues with stray cats around her previous home.
Gentle and shy, Natasha likes being brushed and enjoys a little nip in moderation.
A pet is a member of the family and when things go wrong, a pet parent has to do some research (starting with a visit to the vet), problem solving, and detective work to find a solution. There is a wealth of information on the web.
Imagine if bed wetting children were dropped off at an orphanage…
OK, I will now step off my soapbox and show you some cute kittens.
What could be more fun than volunteering in a room filled with six playful young cats?
Sometimes I think PAWS could raise money by charging admission!
Here are the boys: buff and white Sony, and Sharp in his tuxedo.
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…
This is Jalapeño. She is one of six little peppers charming everyone at PAWS.
Pretty and petite, Bastet is ready for retirement.
She gave birth to a beautiful litter of kittens and now it’s time for a home of her own, and the life a cat goddess deserves!
Her kittens have already been adopted.

Celebrating the adoptions of Simba II, Kit-e, Gladys, Oliver (a very sweet black cat- sorry, no photograph), kittens Patrick and Bunny!
Meanwhile, back in Cat Room #1, Molly quickly discovered the bag of new cat toys and staked her claim.
There’s more than one cat named Patches at PAWS now, so this pretty girl has been designated “Patches II”. As you can see, she’s a dilute calico with beautiful markings. Only about two years old, she’s friendly and very active.
She must be placed with her brother Rusty, who is shy and wasn’t ready yet for a photo session. I’ll try to show you her handsome orange tiger companion next time… well, actually, I hope they won’t be at the shelter that long!
Kittens Fiver (black male) and Trudy (tortie female) are looking for a family to call their own too.
