Adrienne

Adrienne's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

The last of the sisters (one already found her forever home), Adrienne has the longest hair, a pretty mix of tan, grey and orange. She purrs immediately to the touch with a unique "singing" sound. Adrienne is an affectionate people cat who enjoys following her person around the house. She and Ariel are very close and would love to go home together.

Amanda
 

Amanda

Amanda's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

"Aaackk! My tail! What on earth happened to my tail?? All the other cats have nice long tails and I have this stubby little thing! No one will want me with this tail!"

"Amanda, dear Amanda...that little tail makes you very special. It means you are a Manx kitty, not just an ordinary old "domestic shorthair" like most of the others. Someone will choose you especially for your little tail, we promise. And look at it this way - you don't have to worry about chasing your tail and never catching it, or getting your tail caught in a door, or having someone step on it! You're actually very, very lucky."

"Okay, if you say so. So...I'm a pretty grey and white, 7-year old Manx. I've been spayed and I'm up-to-date on my vaccines. Because our dad no longer could care for us, he brought my very good buddy, Wesley, and me to PAWS. Wesley, a 7-year old springer spaniel, found a new home very quickly and I really miss him....I wish his new family would have taken me too, but they didn't. Many of the PAWS kitties don't like dogs, but Wes and I got along just fine, so I wouldn't mind at all going to a home where I could have another canine friend. Something else you really should like about me is that I tell you when I want something...so many cats just sit there and glare and you have to figure out what's up. Not me. I can be very vocal. And once I have your attention, I am very sweet and affectionate, little tail and all."

 

Amelie
 

Amelie

Amelie's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

AMELIE is, of course, black...with white toes. Amelie is an 8-month old, spayed female who is quite shy around people. She fears that she will be thought of by humans?American humans, that is...as Bad luck. Had she been fortunate enough to be born in Britain or Japan, she would bring Good luck by simply crossing a human's path. Although not a lap cat yet, Amelie does like to be petted and gains confidence watching other cats. Touching a black cat brings Good luck!

 

Amy
 

Amy

Amy's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Amy is an orange tiger female (don't see these too often!). 4-months old, born of a feral mom, this kitten has been in a foster home since the age of 6 weeks. Although she's come a long way from her feral beginnings, she's still somewhat shy and will require patience and a slow introduction to a new environment.

Eowyn's second son. Just to be different, Aragorn has all black, medium-length fuzzy fur and big feet! This is a good-looking, friendly little family.

 

Archer
 

Archer

Archer's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Archer is a 6 month old, neutered male with all his vaccinations including rabies. As a young kitten he was very skittish and hard to
handle. He has come a long way and has decided my lap is just fine as long as he has the choice. Also loves to be petted and will beg for
treats both vocally and by standing on top of the cabinet where they are located. First to greet me in the morning and rub around my legs.
Plays well with other cats [young and old] and is close to Rheamy although they are not litter mates.

DOB 4/4/03, male

Ariel

Ariel's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Ariel -- Sister number two, also spayed, is a medium-haired torbie with a funny crook in the end of her tail. Ariel has extraordinarily beautiful yellow eyes. She's cuddly and a purr machine, but seems to enjoy some private time as well.

Billie Jo
 

Billie Jo

Billie Jo's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

One-year old female, short-haired gray stripe with white around her eyes. A tad bigger than sister Bobbie Jo. Billie Jo is more of a loner and not quite as sure of people as sis, but she can be loving and, with some attention, may just learn that cuddling ain't so bad. Will be spayed before adoption.

 

Billie
 

Billie

Billie's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Dear Billie is a brightly-colored, long-haired calico -- female, as all calicos are, and spayed. Best guess is that she's about 5-6 years old. Billie's owner passed away two years ago, and poor Billie has been outside on her own all this time. When she was rescued and brought to PAWS, her beautiful fur was tightly matted, she had wounds that needed to be cleaned and sutured, and a cloudy cornea which we'e just observing for now. In other words, she was a mess. Despite her predicament, Billie was as sweet as she could be. Her matted fur was clipped and she was shaved so her wounds could be treated, so she looks a bit silly now. But you can see what a lovely cat she will be when all her fur grows back. Billie's purr machine works non-stop, and if we can guess what she's telling us, it's "Thank you for caring...I feel SO very much better now. And although I sorta miss my diet of bugs and fresh mouse, the food here isn't all that bad?and I don't have to work for it!? Next stop ?a good, loving indoor home.

Bob
 

Bob

Bob's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

I'm BOB, brother of TOM. He thinks he's being so clever with that TomCat/BobCat business...hmph. Guess it IS a little amusing. Like Tom said, we look pretty much alike except that I've got just a couple of white hairs on my chest - have no idea how they got there - and some white on my belly, but not much. We were born on 12/13/02 and, I guess, are pretty big for our age. We're a super friendly pair, not at all intimidated by the adoption center, and we love to play by ourselves, with each other, especially with people. The other cats at the Center don't bother us at all, and I can't imagine us having a problem with dogs or kids. We're all round well-adjusted boys. Only one thing - as Tom said, we really want to be adopted together. We get along so well, and anyway...why settle for one when you can have twice the fun?!

 

Bobbie Jo
 

Bobbie Jo

Bobbie Jo's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

One-year old female, short-haired gray stripe with white muzzle and chin. Small for her age, may always be a petite kitty. Left behind with a neighbor when her family moved. Bobbie Jo is cuddly and loves to be held....a real lap kid. Will be spayed before adoption.

 

Bootsie
 

Bootsie

Bootsie's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Bootsie (shown here with Sheba) is mostly black with white paws and a white stripe on her forehead. She gets more and more loving every day. Bootsie especially enjoys butting her head into your hand to get your attention and to be petted. Bootsie is Mrs. Murphy's kitten, and she was born in August of 2001.

 

Brigit
 

Brigit

Brigit's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Brigit is a one-year old spayed female calico who is new to the Center and still trying to adjust. She acts unsure when first approached, but is very eager to be petted once you get beyond her "stay away from me" façade. According to her previous owner, Brigit is territorial around other cats, but is people friendly, loves to play "fetch" with her special stuffed mouse and is very loyal to her person. More on this pretty girl once we get to know her a little better.

 

Brummel
 

Brummel

Brummel's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

This very handsome, 1-1/2 year old, tan and white fellow was found wandering the streets of Philadelphia in February. He was cold and hungry, but otherwise healthy. A Penn State student rescued him and brought him to State College, but when she graduated, she couldn't keep him. Brummel was neutered last week, and he made such an impression on the staff at the veterinary hospital that THEY wanted to keep him! Operation or no operation, he was so affectionate, he won their hearts. Brummel is definitely a talker and, if last week's experience is any indication, a ladies' man! So come see him soon. He's gonna talk...or charm...someone into adopting him very quickly.

 

Buddy
 

Buddy

Buddy's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Looking for an older guy who's been around the block once or twice? Then look no more! I'm a neutered, black and gray tiger who's almost 8 years old, but has lots of life left in me. I'm a very laid back fellow who, sadly, came to PAWS because my owner died unexpectedly. I like other cats but have never been around dogs, so I don't know whether I'd like them or not. I haven't been around children much either, but since I'm such a mellow cat, I don't think they'd bother me so long as they're not pulling my tail or trying to hurt me. If you're looking for someone who can love you as much as I can, then your search is over...you've found a Buddy!

 

Caliope
 

Caliope

Caliope's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Cameo

Cameo's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

sister of Beau Bear, Copper and Sassafras


won't be ready for adoption until she's 8 weeks old

 

Candy
 

Candy

Candy's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Candy is a beautiful three-year old spayed tortie. She is very quiet, but loves to be petted and will squirm in ecstacy when stroked gently and lovingly.
She especially likes a friendly scratch behind the ears and under her chin. Candy was born in Rebersburg (Summer 2000) and has had several litters of kittens, but she has now "retired" from the joys of mothering and just wants a quiet home where she will be the queen.

 

Carlo (Eduardo)
 

Carlo (Eduardo)

Carlo (Eduardo)'s Bio at the Time of Adoption:

CC
 

CC

CC's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

My name is CC (just that it doesn't stand for anything). I have a long, charcoal-grey coat and pretty green eyes. They tell me I'm beautiful, and I can accept that! I'm 7 years old (born March 1996), and I've been spayed, front declawed, and am up-to-date on my vaccines. I adapt very quickly to new surroundings and am very affectionate. I especially love having my long hair brushed, and since this needs to be done regularly, it's a darned good thing I REALLY enjoy it. I'm very clean in my habits, and would love to be a bed cat-if I were allowed. I like to snooze in out-of-the-way, cushy spots and I pick nice, sunny spots to watch the great outdoors. I come when I'm called and am very social, but I do tend to be possessive of my person's or family's attentions. Although I stroll amicably around the adoption center with the other cats, I'd rather not share my home with one™¾nd you'll never get me anywhere near a dog! I really want to be someone's Number One and only CC.

Cherise
 

Cherise

Cherise's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Pretty calico, spayed female, about 5 years old. Was outside on her own for awhile, but seems quite content indoors. Cherise may be a little cool at first, but spend some time with her and she'll capture your heart. Just turn on a computer and you will instantly have your very own techno-lap cat! Cherise is a quiet companion cat who very much wants a home of her own, preferably one with a nice window seat or two so she can keep an eye on what's going on in the neighborhood. She thinks other cats and dogs are okay, but not really necessary! Come to the PAWS Center and take time to get to know pretty Cherise .

 

Chloe
 

Chloe

Chloe's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Chloe is a sweet, medium-gray female with a white bib. She is nicely vocal and active. Chloe and her sister, Sophie, were born around June 1998. Sophie was adopted in 2001. Chloe misses her sister and very much needs a loving home to ease her lonliness.

Daffy
 

Daffy

Daffy's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Daffy told us this about himself when he came to PAWS: ~{!0~}My name is ~{!0~}Daffy~{!1~} because I~{!/~}m such a rowdy, monkey-like clown who loves to entertain. I~{!/~}m a handsome, black dude with white ~{!0~}mittens~{!1~} and interesting white markings on my face. My tummy is white with a black stripe right down the middle! I~{!/~}m accustomed to being indoors at night and use my litterbox faithfully. During the day, I have a ball romping outdoors and ripping up and down a dogwood tree on my farm!~{!1~} --- Daffy is indeed a funny, fun-loving and super-friendly cat. The PAWS volunteers adore him. He has adjusted very well to being indoors, so with fun playthings, a playmate or two and ample space, he~{!/~}d probably do fine staying inside. A floor-to-ceiling tree house could be a nice substitute for his favorite dogwood tree! Daffy is one year old and is neutered. He misses sister Dottie, who found a new home almost the instant she came in the door, so you might want to consider a new female companion for ~{!0~}the Daff.~{!1~}

Dinky
 

Dinky

Dinky's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Dinky, also known as Jeannie, is a 3-4 year old, absolutely stunning medium-haired, spayed calico. She is a very sweet, smart and loving cat who acts like a big kitten when it comes to playtime. Dinky loves to sit on her person's lap while person is reading, watching a movie, etc., and if the person happens to be female, earrings are fair game! Look out!

In her previous home, Dinky learned a game called "what's under this piece of paper?" It's her favorite. Stick something like a pencil under a piece of paper and let the game begin... she'll come on in full attack mode. Second to that, she loves skidding down the hallway with her yellow catnip mouse, throwing it down the stairs, bringing it back up and starting the process all over again. Guess that means Dinky's preference for a new home would include "skiddable" flooring!

As most cats, Dinky comes to life at night, snoozing away her days in a comfy spot far from the maddening crowd or curled up in a window seat watching the birds and squirrels. It would help if her new family has at least one "night person", as Dinky really doesn't like to be alone when it's her time to shine. It's a must that her new person enjoys brushing her and fluffing her face and head as much as Dinky enjoys "going to the beauty shop" each day to keep herself looking like the gorgeous calendar cat she is.

 

Domino
 

Domino

Domino's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

"My, what big feet you have, dear Domino!" "The better to keep my little 'uns in toe...er, in tow, dear PAWS person." Domino is a beautiful momcat with medium-length black fur and a white mask. She is polydactyl which, for the uninitiated, means that she has an extra toe on each paw, front and back. In fact, she has the biggest feet we've ever seen! Domino's five little 'uns were born March 19 and two already have been adopted. Of the three remaining kids, one is polydactyl like mom, but on his front feet only. Domino is a very loving kitty and is THE cat for people who like to trim nails... four extra ones to do each time! YES!

 

Dorothy
 

Dorothy

Dorothy's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

If you¡¦re an antique buff, perhaps you¡¦ve seen me at Old Fort Collectibles in Centre Hall. My name is Dorothy, and no, I wasn¡¦t in training to be a shop cat! But the wonderful owners of the antique shop allowed me to spend my weekdays there so that folks had a chance to meet me when the adoption center was closed. This also gave me freedom to run around, to greet people who came into the shop, and to play with real ¡§shop cat¡¨ who lived there. I loved it! But now Old Fort Collectibles is closed and, doggone it, I¡¦m back at the adoption center full-time. ƒ¼ I¡¦m a pretty dark tabby and white girl, close to 7 years old, spayed of course, and front declawed. I can be quite vocal, but people seem to enjoy my unique voice. I¡¦m very affectionate with people I trust, and because of all the trips back and forth to Old Fort, I¡¦ve become quite patient with the carrier routine and riding in the car. I used to hate that! I was harassed something awful by another cat in my previous home, so I¡¦d really like to be your only cat or else team up with a really mellow fellow. -- Dorothy

 

Dozer
 

Dozer

Dozer's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Yup, that's me, full name Bulldozer.? I'm a really big orange and white fellow,16 pounds big! But don't let my name or my size scare you off. I will not bulldoze my way through your home leaving all your precious possessions in my path. Not at all! In fact, I'm just the opposite. I'm 8 years old (all that destructive kitten stuff long gone), neutered, no claws on the big front paws and, at this middle passage of my life, pretty much of a couch potato.

I come with a small trousseau of stuff? which includes my harness and leash. You heard that right! I won't fuss at all if you wrest me from the comfy couch, put on my harness and take me for a walk. I really enjoy getting the fresh air and the exercise sure can't hurt. I'm new to the adoption center and still in that very confused "where in the heck am I and what am I doing here" state of mind. But give me a week or two and you'l see what a nice, well-behaved, loving big guy I am. Take me to your couch! I'll keep it nice and warm for you. -- DOZER

 

Ebony

Ebony's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

EBONY, appropriately named, is black on black....a nine-month old neutered male who is shy but loving, especially with other cats and kittens. There's not an aggressive bone in this fellow's 10-pound body. Ebony doesn't mind being second banana in the household and will make a wonderful companion for you and another cat. If your other cat's a kitten, your job is done....Ebony LOVES to take care of kittens. Having a black cat enter your home is Good luck!

Emily
 

Emily

Emily's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

My name is Emily, "Em" for short. I'm a 9 yr.-old spayed calico with (so I'm told) the most captivating crystal green eyes. I'm also told that I don't look or act my age....thank heavens for that. I'm very loving and affectionate, but....don't know how to say this without offending anyone....I really don't have the patience or tolerance for children or other animals. This is why I lost my previous home. Don't know what it is, but I'd be happiest with a single adult, perhaps a senior citizen. I enjoy lying in the sunlight, chasing reflections (flashlights....a laser pointer would be fun!), being brushed and petted. Occasional tuna and catnip really turn me on. I'm up-to-date on my vaccines, and this week, I'll be having my teeth made pearly white again. After that, I'm ready to meet YOU! -- Emily

 

Enoch
 

Enoch

Enoch's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Knock, knock on Enoch's door.

For fun and frolic and laughs galore.

Our dear little Enoch is never a bore.

She's Personality Plus and a whole lot more!

Although she already celebrated her first birthday, pretty Enoch thinks she's still a kitten. She's very petite so she blends right in with the little 'uns at play, only occasionally becoming a little too rough for them. When she's given a "time out", i.e., returned to her playpen, she doesn't complain although you can tell she wonders why she's being discriminated against. If you have a soft spot in your heart for dark torties, here's one with just the right combination of fun-loving, mischievous silliness, but who's also very sweet and well-behaved. Enoch has been spayed, is up-to-date on her vaccines, and "ready, set, go" to a family who will appreciate her delightful antics. She'd love to have a kitten as a buddy. Enoch has one special need and that is a prescription diet to help with a minor digestive problem. She may very well outgrow the need for this once she's settled in a calm, stable environment.

 

Eowyn
 

Eowyn

Eowyn's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

I was rescued from the cold just before Christmas with my two kids in tow. We became fondly known as The Lord of the Rings cats at PAWS, so if you're not a "Rings" fan, this explains my rather odd name~{!-~}.which is pronounced however one wishes to pronounce it! Kids Pippin and Aragorn were adopted together into a wonderful family, and I've since been spayed and am ready for something good to happen to me. I'm a petite, black and white girl, born somewhere around July 2002. And there's something v-e-r-y special about me....I'm polydactyl! What in the world, you ask, is THAT? That's just a fancy word humans use to say that I~{!/~}ve got six toes on each of my front feet....ordinary cats have just five. I'm very outgoing and affectionate. I love to rub my face into your face, snuggle up, or roll on my side, purring loudly, and gaze up into your eyes. And imagine what it's like to have your lap kneaded by a "Rings"gal with 12 toes! When you come to the adoption center, please ask for Eowyn....however you pronounce it, the volunteers will know who you mean. -- Eowyn

Faerie
 

Faerie

Faerie's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

No, my name is not Eliza Doolittle, nevertheless, I¡¯m the fairest of fair ladies at Centre County PAWS. Professor Higgins would have a fit with the spelling of my name, but he¡¯d be hard-pressed to find something insulting to say about ME. I'm a lovely 18-month old, spayed, dilute calico, having come to PAWS with 5 kittens who all have found homes of their own.

I have a sweet, gentle personality, and I speak perfect, highly cultured "Cat". That is, I speak only when spoken to...or when I'm hungry and want your attention. When I first went to a foster home, I was scared to death of the toys foster mom bought for me. I had no idea what they were or what I was supposed to do with them. I learned...and now I'm playful as a kitten. When I tire of playing, I roll over, hoping that someone will softly rub my belly. And as my way of saying thank you, I give an ever-so-gentle little bite. I still have fond (and not so fond) memories of being outdoors, so I would appreciate a couple of window seats, a screened-in porch, or some way of watching what's happening out there. Although the PAWS folks have grown accustomed to my face at the Center, I'm ready to venture out and dance all night (well not really) at your place. Please come to the Center and ask for PAWS' fair lady, Faerie. Just maybe you'll end up taking me to the street where you live.

Fluff
 

Fluff

Fluff's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Like a talker? Well, I love to verbalize and I love having you talk to me. I also love to roll on my back, do acrobatics and bounce. Why walk when you can run? Or bounce? Or pounce? I'm a petite, spayed, 8-month old whirlwind, weighing only about 6 pounds though I'm almost full-grown. When the energy wanes, and it does occasionally, what makes me happiest is sleeping cuddled up with my favorite human. I've got a plush, shimmering, long steel-gray coat and a fantastic, furr-rific tail that would make a Disney squirrel proud! So come to the PAWS adoption center and talk to me. If we can get a good conversation going (or a first-class romp), I'll have you twisted around my little paw in no time at all. You just might want to take me home!

Forest

Forest's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Brother and buff-colored look-alike of Emerald. Another calendar cat to be sure! Forest is playful, outgoing and friendly, but has one silly little phobia. He's terrified of feather toys! Don't know that Emerald thinks much of them either, so you'll have to find something else with which to amuse these dear fellows. Will be neutered before adoption.

Gentle G
 

Gentle G

Gentle G's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Lookin'for a really cool cat? Come have a look at me! I'm Gentle G - the "G"stands for Giant. I'm not a giant, but I am a big guy, and as the Gentle part of my name suggests, I'm a lover. This is really something for somebody found roaming around outside, unneutered and suffering all those nasty things roaming cats suffer....like earmites, worms, etc. But a wonderful young man allowed me to camp in his garage, finding out very quickly how much of a people cat I want to be. I really liked him and he liked me, but unfortunately, he has one of those cats people call "Type A male" who didn't at all appreciate our budding relationship. So now I'm at the PAWS Center, all the wormy, mitey stuff taken care of, and looking forward (honest!) to being neutered this week. They tell me I'm a really handsome fellow - gray and cream tabby, about 18 months old - and there's just something about me that's...well....Cool! -- Gentle G

Guy

Guy's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Hi Guy! That’s what the PAWS volunteers kept saying and I thought they were just greeting me. Now I know, I’m the Guy….I mean, that’s my moniker. I’m a neutered, year-old orange and white fellow who’s scared to death being at this place they call the “Center.” I hide behind my bed, under my bed, wherever I can go to escape. But….when someone forces me to be sociable, ya know, it ain’t half bad. I really enjoy the strokes behind the ears, the scratches under the chin. I’ll come around in time. Probably a calm, quiet home would be best for me. More later as our Guy adjusts to life at the Center.

14-week old, short-haired black female with a very small white spot on her chest. Hallie is still very frightened and has a wicked-sounding hiss, but she never strikes out. In fact, she loves to be held and petted? she's just skittish at the initial approach. With the right person to help build her trust, Hallie will come along very quickly.

Hoppy
 

Hoppy

Hoppy's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Once upon a time, there was a petite grey and white kitty named Happy Hop Along. Happy was a proud mother-to-be when tragedy struck. As the story has been told, she was struck by a car, lost her babies, and was found nearly dead by the side of the road. When she came to PAWS, Happy wasn't a happy kitty anymore, rather she was very frightened and sad. Because her leg had been injured in the accident, leaving her with a limp, she was renamed "HOPPY". Our first and foremost goal was to make 3 yr. old, 6-1/2 lb. HOPPY happy again. Oh, but not so fast. On examination by the vet, we learned that HOPPY is with kitten again and very close to delivery. Let's hope that being a mom will restore her courage and her once very sweet and happy disposition. More as HOPPY's story unfolds. Click here for an update.

Kelso
 

Kelso

Kelso's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

KELSO is a slate grey neutered male, born in August 2002. He and his brother, Kenevan, are new to the Center and are still a bit overwhelmed with the environment. They huddle together in their cuddle cup like two peas in a pod...but please don't pass them by. A little attention goes a long, long way. Talk to them and pet them and you can feel the tension melt away. Kelso is a gentle, laid back fellow who enjoys playing with balls, dangly rope and pens. He loves to have his neck scratched, and especially enjoys taking treats from your hand. Kelso and Kenevan enjoy each other's company so much that they would love to be adopted together into a quiet, loving new home.

The Rest of the Story ...

 

Kenevan
 

Kenevan

Kenevan's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

KENEVAN is a grey, one-year old, neutered male, slightly lighter in color than his brother Kelso. Kenevan is blind in one eye and probably has been since birth, but this in no way prevents him from getting around and doing anything he wants to do. Like Kelso, he is shy at the adoption center (it IS a scary place for newcomers), but in a home environment he's very playful. Kenevan loves to run and jump with his brother and enjoys the same toys (balls, dangly rope and pens) and treats. Kenevan likes to have his belly and tailbone scratched. He, too, tells us that he'd really like to stay with his brother, so we're looking for one gentle home wanting to double the fun with two gentle, fun-loving young fellows.

Kennedy
 

Kennedy

Kennedy's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Sitting straight, tall and majestic, Kennedy rode into town atop a gleaming chariot drawn by a team of magnificent stallions. It was a magical mythical moment, nay..."don't let it be forgot, that once there was a spot, for one brief shining moment that was known as Camelot."

Okay, okay, we're making this up...sort of. Cat Kennedy did ride into town sitting straight, tall and...well...the truth be, precariously perched on the roof of a not-so-gleaming chariot known to commoners as a pickup truck! When Robyn Grabowski of Centre Wildlife happened upon the chariot and its passenger at the intersection of Pike and Elmwood Streets in Lemont, she honked, shouted and waved frantically, finally persuading the charioteer to pull over. The startled driver had no idea where the 9-month old tabby had come from, nor when he possibly could have climbed aboard. He'd driven from Stormstown (more than 5 miles away!), making only one brief stop. The good fortunes of Camelot must have been with Cat Kennedy (so named because his sojourn occurred just days before the 40th anniversary of JFK's final one). How he remained for even one brief shining moment atop his chariot is truly a feat of mythical proportion.

PAWS has been unable to locate the owner of this wonderful cat, so Kennedy is now available for adoption. He is delightful, friendly, affectionate and playful...and he will be neutered before he sallies forth again! Bring this lucky young fellow into your home...his good fortune just may become yours! ("Shining moment" quotation, JFK's favorite, stolen from the closing lines of the Broadway musical "Camelot").

Leroy's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

"Bad, bad Leroy Brown, baddest cat in the..." Now WAIT-A-MINUTE! I'm LEROY alright and I'm honored someone wrote a song about me, but let's get this straight. I'm a very GOOD cat! I'd better help the songwriter out. "Good, dear Leroy Brown, goodest cat in the whole PAWS town. He could charm old King Kong... he could tame the junkyard dawg!" That's better... and it swings! Seriously, I AM a good guy and if you like a talker, I like to talk (you can bet I'd simply yak that old ape and the pooch into submission -:)

I'm a neutered male orange tabby, about 3 years old. I've been outside a lot, but would much prefer being indoors. I get along well with other cats and love human attention. I came to PAWS with a chronic snuffly nose, but the PAWS folks are trying to fix me up. Unfortunately, my doctor thinks I had a bad, bad cold when I was a kid that might have permanently damaged my nasal passages. This could mean that I'll always be a snuffly boy....not sick, just prone to periods of increased snooties. If the doc is right, I certainly hope this won't deter someone from taking me home. After all, I'm famous, and I'm a very... Good Leroy

You'd never know my age because I still feel and act like a kitten. I and ten of my siblings lost our owner unexpectedly and are now looking for new homes. I like other cats but haven't been around dogs. Since my personality is so outgoing, children shouldn't be a problem for me. In fact, I'd probably like them...'specially if they'll do somersaults and rollovers with me! Come to the Paws adoption center, ask for LuLu, and TAKE ME HOME!

I'm pretty Maggie. My coat, as you see, is long, sleek and black, but what you don't see is my shimmering light silver undercoat. I'm a spayed female who was born in August 2001. I'd been settled in my home for just about a year when my dad received orders of deployment with the National Guard. This makes me very sad, 'cause I loved my home and I especially loved my dad's lap. But.....he must go serve our country, and I need to find a new lap! I'm playful and very loving, but most of all I love a lap. Got an empty one? -- Maggie

Maya

Maya's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Bad luck? Good luck? Black cat superstitions abound! Nine-month old MAYA, a spayed female black and white tuxedo, was an early victim of very Bad luck. Maya came to us as a kitten with wounds on her head and damage to her eye, presumably caused by another animal. The Good luck for Maya is that she has some vision in the injured eye and isn’t at all handicapped by whatever vision she is lacking. Maya is very playful, likes to have her back rubbed and loves a lap…although she would prefer to find it herself rather than being picked up. Having a black cat greet you at the door is Good luck! Let Maya greet you every day and your luck will never run out…it’s true!

Miles' Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Hi jazz fans! I'm Miles Jasper Davisöª.just Miles if you prefer. I was "Kinda Blue" when I arrived at the adoption center, but already I've served as a PAWS ambassador to the local Senior Center. I was a star! Extraordinary, they said! The cat everyone dreams of having! I'm not just blowin my horn here....they really said that stuff! And I adored them. I'm 3-5 yrs. old, white with orange Turkish Van markings on my head and tail, neutered and up-to-date on my vaccines. I'm looking for a home where I'll be lavished with love, attention, lobster, filet....hey, I'm no "Freddie Freeloader", but I do love to eat! Because I'm such a social guy, it'd sure be nice to have a buddy....another cat, maybe even a calm, well-behaved dog....so I wouldn't have to be alone all day. In the meantime, back to blowin' this horn....I am special! Lookin' forward to a "Joy(ful) Spring"....and all that jazz. -- Miles

Millie's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Don't' know if we call this interesting girl a "caltie" or a "tortico"! The front half of her is calico, the back half tortie! Millie is very talkative and social. She's two years old, spayed and front declawed, and came to PAWS with her littermate, Tillie. Millie and Tillie (and the trousseau) must be adopted together.

Mimosa will be at the PAWS Adoption Center once the kittens are old enough, and she will be spayed before being adopted.

Mo

Mo's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Can anyone resist a face like this? No one we know of! "Moshannon MO", named after the Red Moshannon River near which he was found, has won the hearts of all of the PAWS volunteers. Everyone wants to take him home! MO is an 11-month old, grey with white, neutered male with stunning orange eyes. He's also the most affectionate and laid-back fellow to come our way in a long time. MO made himself right at home at the adoption center, mixing in with the other cats with nary a hiss, and schmoozing it up with the volunteers like he knew full well something was at stake here. Here's a guy you can pick up, flip over and rock like a baby and he absolutely loves it! Nothing seems to disturb him. MO was in poor physical condition when he was found, but his rescuers cared for him well and fed him well and now he's the picture of health. He won't be with us long....."Moshannon MO" is one irresistible fellow!

 

Mo
 

Mo

Mo's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Oh no, I'm not the same Mo who you saw on this page a month ago. He was a he...and Me, I'm a she. (To avoid this confusion, the nice lady who nursed me following my recent spay calls me "Mokie"). I'm one year old, and have the face, spots and tiger-striped markings of one of the "big cats." I sorta resemble a little ocelot!

I'm a refuge of the North Atherton St. trailer park.....you know, the place that was sold so that OUR home could become home to Krispy Kreme, KFC and yes, another bank. I am one of the many non-human residents of the park who have lost not only our homes, but our families too. My family was fortunate to find a new place to live, but..."No Mo's allowed" is the rule...can you believe that? They are sad and I am sad, but I'm grateful to PAWS for giving me a warm, friendly place to wash my whiskers until I can find a new special person. I'm a sweet and affectionate kitty, and I promise to be NO trouble at all. So, hey HO! Don't pass GO! MOsey on over and ask for Mo!

 

Mocha
 

Mocha

Mocha's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

A wonderful clown who celebrated his first birthday March 24!
It has taken a lo-o-o-ong time to get Mocha to trust people enough to come running when called. In new situations, he still tends to hide
And no one is able to see his GORGEOUS plume of a tail!!
Once Mocha trusts, he is very friendly, will jump on your lap, roll around in your arms, and chirp when he sees you. He gets along fine
With most other cats and with dogs, but has never been around children.
A single person or couple with a nice dog or cat in a relatively quiet household would be ideal for Mocha because he is very social
With other animals and enjoys company. He is well-behaved, though he does romp around a bit a night. Mocha is neutered, UTD on his shots, a DMH black and brown tabby, and quite inquisitive. He'll rest on a window sill until someone enters the room, then scamper away until he knows that it's OK to come out. His littermate is Java.

 

Mosey and Jordan

Mosey and Jordan's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Mosey and Jordan - 4-months old, born of a feral mom, these kittens have been in a foster home since the age of 6 weeks. Although they've come a long way from their feral beginnings, they're still somewhat shy and will require patience and a slow introduction to a new environment. All short-haired, Mosey is a grey female with white belly and paws; and Jordan is a tan fellow with white belly and paws.

Nittany's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Born in Spring 2002, Nittany is a short-haired, neutered male with silky grey fur, a white nose, chest and paws, and large inquisitive eyes. For those familiar with the famous Mt. Nittany, our Nittany kitty was not named for the mountain, but rather for the housing complex in which he was found. Nittany tends to bond closely with one person, and that person can do anything with him. Until he builds that trust, however, expect slightly skittish behavior, an occasional nip and, given the opportunity, devilish little swipes at your hair! Nittany's nips and swipes don't hurt at all....he's just testing! Wants to see if you meet his standards for becoming HIS special person. Nittany is very active and playful -- a really delightful fellow.

Paddy and Connor
 

Paddy and Connor

Paddy and Connor's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Paddy, shown here with his brother, Conner, is a sweet little boy born in March. Paddy and Conner can be difficult to tell apart. I feel the tip of their tails - Paddy has a bump at the end of his, and Conner does not. These boys are very sweet and play well together and with other cats. They like balls, mice, and feather toys. They have funny, squeaky voices like their mom, Princess. Conner is a real lap cat - He just wants someone to snuggle with him. Paddy is playful and also very loving. Both cats like to sleep beside you in bed at night.

 

Pancakes

Pancakes' Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Ping
 

Ping

Ping's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

PING is a wonderful 7-month old white kitten (born 9/7/02) with golden eyes. Ping is a special needs?kitten. Although you'd never know it unless you were told, Ping is deaf. This means that he must always be kept indoors. His family members all must be sensitive to the fact that Ping can't hear them and must develop strategies for working with him that neither startle him nor rely upon sound. PAWS volunteers can help.

Ping is very playful, but he's a lap kitty too and loves to be held. He's good with children and other cats, and especially adores and relies on his brother, PONG. In the best interest of both these kitties, Ping and Pong must be adopted together. They will be neutered before adoption.

Pong

Pong's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

PONG, brother of PING, is a delightful 7-month old white kitten (born 9/7/02) with blue eyes. Although white kittens with blue eyes frequently are deaf, whereas white kittens with gold or green eyes more often are not, the situation is just the reverse with Ping and Pong. The blue-eyed Pong can hear just fine.

Like his brother, Pong is also a perfect mix of playfulness and lap kitty extraordinaire. He is good with children, including toddlers, and with other cats. In the best interest of both brothers, Ping and Pong must be adopted together. They will be neutered before adoption.

 

Princess (orange tabby)
 

Princess (orange tabby)

Princess (orange tabby)'s Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Princess, ah dear Princess. For three months, we've been asking you to to write your "purr-sonal" story for us. But still, you remain an enigma. You¡¯ve given hints that there's a very sweet and loving kitty inside trying to surface, but until recently, you weren't about to let it happen in a cage, or anywhere in the Adoption Center. Princess came to PAWS in April with four 4-week old kittens. She was a great mom and loved talking about and showing off her kids. She is a petite, 3-year old, light orange gal, now spayed, who still looks like a kitten herself. Once separated from her family, Princess decided she hates being caged and has done everything in her power to resist being put back into one once she's free. Avoidance has been the name of the game when she's out and about, and it has given volunteers little opportunity to connect with her on a purr-sonal level. Just recently, though, she's begun to lighten up... she's now playing with the kittens, often getting mistaken for one of them, and has started to bump, rub and flirt, so long you're on the floor with her and she doesn't sense that the petting is a prelude to being put "away". This is a kitty who will probably be a wonderful, loving companion in a home of her own. Princess sincerely hopes someone will give her that chance... and the sooner the better.

If I trash the "house" like they used to, maybe they'll come back!" Poor dear Riley...what a good and proud mom she was. But, indeed, her kittens are gone, all adopted into wonderful, loving families. And yes, Riley did search everywhere. Now this wonderful, 4-year old, black and brown tabby "momcat" needs to find a loving family of her own. She deserves no less than the kids she so proudly raised. Riley will be spayed before going to an adoptive home.

Rollie's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

"Golly ollie, ROLLIE....what did you do to get yourself in this predicament?"

"Well, I gotta tell ya....it was those little kids. They're just 1 and 3 years old and I know they didn't mean it, but they threatened me so I threatened them back. I'm embarrassed to admit it, but...I bit 'em."

"Rollie! You bit little kids?"

"Yup. If I could have just scratched them, I'd probably have done that, but I have no claws so... And ya know, although I'm sorry about this, I'd really prefer going someplace where there aren't any little ones to get in my face. I'm afraid I might do the same thing again."

Rollie is a very handsome, 4-year old, neutered and front-declawed, red and white tabby male. He's a good cat, has excellent litterbox habits, and is very loving and affectionate with adults. He's fine with other animals, but children just aren't his cup of tea. Rollie is looking for a quiet, non-threatening adults only home.

 

Saba
 

Saba

Saba's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Saba is "the other half" of this great pair of sisters. Although not quite as big as Simba, she too is on a weight control program which will need to be maintained. Saba is easy-going, more complacent, and perhaps a little more approachable than sis. She loves to sleep on top of the bed. Saba and Simba are two incredibly healthy, neat, clean and well-behaved ladies who like to snuggle together and enjoy the comforts of a quiet, unencumbered life. Soft food in the morning is appreciated, thick bedding is a luxury they love, and good-morning, good-night kisses on their foreheads are welcome. Saba and Simba will make very wonderful companions for someone looking for good company without high-maintenance. Where one goes, the other follows, so Saba and Simba MUST be adopted together.

Seal
 

Seal

Seal's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

This little boy is such a sweetie. His foster parents can't say enough about him! He's about four months old, great with other cats and dogs.

 

Sheba

Sheba's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Sheba is a black and gray tiger with lots of white. She spent most of her young life in a hole under a trailer and now is finding out how nice it is to be loved. She looks like she stuck her nose in ashes, but really, she was born with that smudge! Sheba was born in June 2001.

 

Simba
 

Simba

Simba's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

If you like B-I-G cats, you'll love our King of Beasts! Simba, a very gentle beast, looks like a miniature mountain lion, but will steal your heart as he nudges his head to be petted. His foster mom tells us that he'll even stand up on his hind legs so you can get at him better! We haven't witnessed this at the Center, but it would be a sight to capture on video for sure! Fortunately, I suppose, Simba doesn't appreciate being picked up - he'd be quite an armful -- but he does enjoy sitting beside you for company and affection. New to the PAWS Center, Simba hasn't made himself at home yet and looks very wary of everyone gawking at his enormous size. Once you get past the fear and trepidation of sticking your hand in his cage, you'll find that Simba really is a gentle guy who wouldn't think of biting the hand that reaches out to softly stroke his big head. Simba has brown/black tabby markings, is a little over 2 years old and a son of former PAWS kitty, Mrs. Murphy (see Simba's mom on Cats Adopted 2002 page). Makes you wonder who in the world dad was!

 

Simba
 

Simba

Simba's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

"Joined at the hip" is how foster mom describes red tabby sisters, Simba and Saba (see below). Although quite different in personality, where one goes, it's not long before the other follows. They have a symbiotic relationship that is interesting to watch, especially when they communicate with each other by carefully timed glances. Simba is the larger of the two ladies and is on a weight control program that will have to be maintained by her adoptive family (very simple). Foster mom also is trying to get her to exercise by chasing a laser light. She and her sister do like to play, but only when you're not watching! Simba is more animated and assertive than Saba. She knows what she wants, and when she's upset, she lets you know...by ignoring you, i.e. hiding. Simba and Saba are about 8 years old, are spayed and front declawed, and MUST be adopted together.

Simon
 

Simon

Simon's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Lookin' for a guy who'd love to retire by the fire? Simon is the definition of mellow. A cool, handsome hunk of a guy, Simon is 8-years old, neutered and front-declawed, and with a personality that will melt your heart. He enjoys being where his person is, and will sometimes sit and purr and watch you....'til you're convinced you are the most interesting thing ever born! A downside? He likes to eat plants and then becomes ill. Even kitty greens must be kept from him. Think you can handle that?

 

Singha
 

Singha

Singha's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

'Inscrutable" is how we would have described Singha when he first came to the Center. Not a clue would he reveal about where he came from or what he was all about. All we knew is that this tall, elegant, neutered 7-yr. old Sealpoint Siamese had been wandering about for months, looking thin and, as time went on, obviously lost or abandoned. Efforts to find his owner brought no response.

After chilling out, meditating, or whatever he was doing in the Center for a week or so, Singha finally started to open up. He said he was perfectly willing to use a litterbox, but a kitten-sized box? "Come on," he yelled. "You expect me to go in that? I can barely get one foot in there!" That problem fixed, he said he'd really like to get out and meet the other Center cats. Request approved
...and not knowing what to expect, he turns out to be quite sociable. He told us he's not fond of being picked up if it's nothing more than an escort to confinement. "I can find my own way, thank you." And he's definitely tired of being petted under pretext of affection, then having that awful gunk (medicine for conjunctivitis) plopped in his eyes. "Enough," he says. "I can't see through that stuff. I like being stroked and I'll purr softly in return, but if medicine is going to be my reward, I just won't cooperate anymore. This is no way to treat a regal being." As Singha continues to communicate with us, we'll let you know what he says. Read on for...

 

Smitty
 

Smitty

Smitty's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Looking for a playful cat?


Looking for an affectionate cat?


Looking for a cat that will get along with anybody and anything?


If you answered yes to one or more of these questions Smitty is the cat for you. Smitty is a young spayed female (about 11 months old) with the energy of a small kitten. She will explore every inch of her home and find toys (even if there really are none). The only thing that can interupt her play sessions are food, sleep and of course a human that needs to be rubbed, purred at and climbed onto.

 

Snickers
 

Snickers

Snickers' Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Snickers is a very sweet 9-month old female, black and tan tabby with a white "facemask" and white belly. And what a tease she is! She loves to be petted and rubbed, and eggs you on to rub her tummy. When you comply, you get a soft purr and a friendly, totally non-hurtful, nip. Snickers will be spayed before adoption.

 

Snowball
 

Snowball

Snowball's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Snowball? You've gotta be kidding! Snowball is such a fluffy name for a handsome ladies man like me...and what's more, I'm a big BLACK boy! But I'll let you in on a secret - "Snowball" is actually my code name. You see, I'm a secret agent - you may have seen some of my movies. Piers Brosnan plays ME! My mission is simple...to make you love me. To do this, I'll put my paws around you, twine my sleek bod around your ankles, purr at the foot of your bed, and give you lots of kisses. I'll also convince you that it's your idea to brush me every day. (A stylish guy like me needs lots of upkeep). As your reward, you'll love me forever and, of course, I'll love you forever too. Mission accomplished! As an aside, I'm one year old and recently neutered. -- Snowball

 

Souvenir
 

Souvenir

Souvenir's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Souvenir earned his name because he was born the night before his mom was to be spayed! The vets had not detected the pregnancy. He really is a treasure! Souvenir is a sweet boy who would do well in a home with other cats or by himself. He plays well with others, but he can also entertain himself if he is alone. His favorite toys are feathers on sticks (which he's playing with in the photo) and furry toy mice. He is very gentle and loving. When he thinks it is time for you to wake up in the morning and play with him, he will nuzzle his head in your ear until he gets your attention. Souvenir deserves a home that will give him all the love he deserves.

Storm
 

Storm

Storm's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Storm is a small, one-year-old, blue-gray female (looks like a Russian Blue). She is very affectionate and will just make your heart melt when she looks at you with her beautiful green eyes. She loves to lay next to you and get pet, but don't underestimate her energy; Storm is very playful. She is a very social cat and has no problems with other cats or "strange" people.


Storm came into PAWS with a litter of 3 kittens. She was already pregnant again and had a litter of 7 kittens on Tax Day (4/15/03). All but two kittens (Gizmo, Flurp) have been adopted and Storm has been spayed. She is ready to find a permantent new home where she can enjoy life without kittens.

Susie

Susie's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Drip, drip! SLURP! Drip, SLURP! SHLURP! Drip! Pffft! SLURP! Chatter, chatter, gab, gab, gab! This is SUSIE, a beautiful, talkative, 2-year old dilute calico with a huge plume of a tail. Susie is spayed and front-declawed and, as you may have gathered, she LOVES to drink from the faucet. With Susie around, your water bill may go up, but at least the water won't go to waste... that is, if you let it drip for her... which you must, she says. Susie talks for attention ¨C she craves affection and is a real showoff about it, rolling over on her back just begging someone to rub her belly. So much does she need your affection that she's unhappy having to share it with other animals in the household. On the surface, she gets along fine with dogs and other cats, but lets it be known to her person(s) that she considers the others interlopers and could just as well do without them. Susie is a wonderful girl ¨C playful, a constant companion and as giving of the loving as she is in accepting it. But with only so much to go around, Susie wants it all and would do best being your one and only queen of the realm.

 

Sydney
 

Sydney

Sydney's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

A lovelier, more friendly and affectionate brown tabby would be hard to find. Pretty Sydney is 3 years old, spayed and front declawed. She is extremely social and a very curious cat. One of her favorite pastimes is exploring cupboards, which could be hazardous to her health depending on what's inside! Baby locks might be a good investment. Sydney came to PAWS from a merged family in which one of the new family members is seriously allergic to cats. It's obvious, however, that she is used to being at the center of family activity and would love to find another lively home where she could join in the fun. The other side of Sydney is lap cat extraordinaire....she especially enjoys helping you work at the computer. Sydney will be snatched up quickly, so don't waste any time. Come out and meet her now!

Tom

Tom's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

I'm TOM, and my brother's name is BOB. If our names are so commonplace that you might forget them, think of us as TomCat and BobCat! How to tell us apart is the next challenge. We're the exact same size and both of us are black, but if you look underneath, you'll see that I've got a good deal more white on my chest and tummy than Bob does. We were born on 12/13/02 and are pretty big for kittens not quite 4 months old. Everyone says we'll probably be big cats, so...if you like big cats, but want to start small, come have a look at us. We're playful and very well-socialized for such young guys. We really like people and probably would get along well in a family with children. Brother Bob and I would very much like to go to the same home.

Wiley
 

Wiley

Wiley's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Look Out...here's WILEY COYOTE! Despite the wild and woolly sounding name, 4-month old Wiley is everything you could want in a kitten. He's smart and yes, a bit wiley now and then, playful, affectionate (loves to be toted around on your shoulder), meticulous in his litterbox and grooming habits, and very well-behaved. Wiley learned to use his scratchers in a day and has never laid claw on anything else. He can't be perfect, you say. Well no, he's not. He's a KITTEN! Wiley has a thing for potted plants.... there's nothing more fun than jumping into them and shoveling the dirt out! Spraying the plant with Bitter Apple helps for...oh maybe 2 minutes. Wiley knows what "No" means and he knows what "Down" means, but with the plant thing, only a squirt bottle gets his attention. Use the one you use to mist the plants! Wiley is great with other cats...appropriately respectful of his elders, but equally unintimidated by the snarfy ones. He just swats at their tails and then crab-hops for cover. This kitten has taken the art of cat crab-hopping to an entirely new level! Wiley was found jumping in and out of bushes and into the wheel wells of cars at Geisinger Medical Center in Scenery Park. Two days after his rescue, he became deathly sick and was diagnosed with distemper...a death sentence for sure, we feared. Not THIS Wiley kitten. Sick as he was, he realized what he'd be missing if he checked out so soon.....and within days, he was on his way to recovery and never looked back. Today Wiley has a completely clean bill of health, can no longer shed the virus to other cats, has all of his vaccines, and is ready to find a loving family to fuss over him as foster mom does.

Zack stats: Born April 2002, neutered male, FeLV/FIV negative (means he doesn't have these), rabies and distemper vaccines current. Full name: Zachery. Zack was abandoned in a trailer court where a human(?) was seen kicking him. Trauma injury to his sacroiliac - which may or may not have come from the abuse - healing on its own with no treatment required. Playful, curious and very loving. Zack seeks out a lap and loves to be slung over your shoulder and toted about. Would be great for children and would LOVE to have a playful kitty companion.
