Amber
 

Amber

Amber's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female-spayed, Domestic Shorthair

~DOB: 09/01/02

Meet Amber, the gal with the Maybelline eyes! And what gorgeous, naturally-lined eyes they are….totally befitting of an extraordinarily lovely girl.

Amber and fellow housemates, Sugar and Spice, found themselves suddenly orphaned with the unexpected passing of their devoted mom. Understandably frightened and confused when they first arrived at PAWS, they curled tightly in their beds or litterboxes hoping no one would see them.

Amber was the first to blossom, and she continues to blossom daily as she freely explores one of the sunrooms at the new adoption center. One of the first things we learned about Amber is that she must have trained with the Manhattan skywalker! She loves to climb to the very highest place in the room, and watching her do it is amazing! She is the epitome of grace, agility and absolute control. From her enclosure (which is left open so she can come and go), she leaps to the top of the freely-swinging open door, tightropes along the narrow, rounded rim, finally positioning herself to vault to the shelf-like area high atop the row of cages. One misstep and she’d go tumbling to the floor, but not Amber! How does she ever get down? Same process in reverse. First seen in her previous home on the railing of a second floor balcony, Amber presumably has had lots of practice.

Amber is telling us, of course, that one absolute requirement of her next home is a very tall cat climber, a balcony, high open shelving….something WAY up where she can contentedly sit and watch the world go by.

A sweet and lovable girl, Amber is unusual too --- orange-colored females are few and far between. She won’t be with us long, so come and meet her NOW. Meet Sugar and Spice while you’re at it.

Aretha and Shania
 

Aretha and Shania

Aretha and Shania's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Females, Domestic Shorthair

DOB: 07/17/07

Left: Aretha

Right: Shania

Aretha and Shania are such a cute pair, but they may be adopted separately. They are the only little singers left from mom, Madonna's, musical litter.

Here's what foster mom had to say on October 25th, 2007:

"They may be named Shania and Aretha, but they could be Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen singing “Sisters” in the movie White Christmas. They are extremely close, often making synchronized movements in perfect unison, and they are fun personified. Shania and Aretha are very affectionate, easily handled, very neat and clean, curious, outgoing and agreeable, no matter the circumstances. They are a pure delight in their foster home."

Aretha and Shania find being at the center on the weekends somewhat boring.

Please click for the larger photo to see them wide awake and active. A visit with you in one of the Meet and Greet rooms at the adoption center would no doubt result in seeing these two playful gals in action.

Austin
 

Austin

Austin's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male (neutered), long hair, deaf

Approximate DOB: 06/11/01

Austin is deaf, but that doesn't keep him from being quite a character and very loving and lovable. His foster mom at Stone Valley Pet Lodge wrote: "Austin is extremely friendly and affectionate. He loves Fancy Feast and even though he is deaf, he watches our body language and does what we ask. "

Talk about Fancy Feast, Austin looks exactly like the Fancy Feast cat. Sitting on an empty shelf just under the Fancy Feast display at Wiscoy, what a sight he was....and what a perfect advertisement for the product! Of course, we didn't have a camera in hand at the time.

If you think you're the one to make Austin's dreams come true, please know that all that lovely fur requires good grooming practices by his adopter. And because he is deaf, he is easily startled. You will need to learn how best to approach him, especially when he's snoozing or is facing away from you and won't hear you coming.

Bond
 

Bond

Bond's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male-neutered, Domestic Medium Hair

Approximate DOB: 08/02/04

In this photo, Bond, as in James 007, appears to be reading a brochure on a pet photo contest, thinking: "Boy, soon as I gain some weight and recover from the hard knocks of being on my own, I'll bet I could win that contest!" Well you must see him now! With good food and much TLC, Bond is thriving. No question he qualifies as a calendar cat! And he's super affectionate too.


This --using James Bond movie titles--just in from his foster mom:


Bond..... James Bond

007


The World is Not Enough for this feline incarnation of 007. Bond is ready to play Casino Royale with your heart. His charming personality will have you ready to Die Another Day if you continue to live without him. His Golden Eye (s) will draw you in as he head-butts your hand for more attention. PAWS is proud to host this James Bond as he waits for The Spy Who Loved Me. The only way Bond might Scare the Living Daylights out of you is when he leaps into bed just after the lights go out to snuggle in for a good night's sleep. After recovering from a difficult start in life, (he was found as a stray, very underweight), he enjoys playing with people and cats alike, proving You Only Live Twice , so make the most of it! Come visit Bond at the PAWS adoption center where he has A View to (a) Kill for. Don't say Dr. No to this bighearted gentle giant . He is ready and waiting to become For Your Eyes Only.

 

Boo, Teddy, Shadow
 

Boo, Teddy, Shadow

Boo, Teddy, Shadow's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Domestic Shorthairs, DOB: 04/18/07

Lizzie's kittens

Three adorable little triplets named Boo (Female), Teddy and Shadow(Males).

These 3 little kittens are growing up quickly. They really want someone to enjoy part of their youngster stage with them. It's one of those rare cases where mom found her home before her kittens did!

 

Boo
 

Boo

Boo's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female (spayed), Domestic Shorthair

DOB: 04/18/07

Here's dear little Boo peeking out from under her coverings. She's the same gal who was previously listed with her then tiny-tot brothers, Teddy and Shadow. Boo wants to find her very own loving home while she's still a kitten and can do all those kittenish things to amuse you! She's nervous on adoption days at the center (at the new, 10-times-bigger-

than-the-old center, what cat wouldn't be nervous?). In her foster home, though, she's a typical happy, playful, delightful kitten.

 

Boogerbee and Jack
 

Boogerbee and Jack

Boogerbee and Jack's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Males, Domestic Shorthairs

DOB: ~05/06/07

Boogerbee is the little love in the back of the photo. He seems to like attention.

Jack, with the swoosh on his face, is in front. He's very playful and loves the toy mice.

They look awfully cute together if you think you'd like two fun brothers!

(Hooray...B & J went home together)!

 

Boomer
 

Boomer

Boomer's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male (neutered), Domestic Shorthair

DOB: 05/10/06


Boomer is a growing boy. He's just as sweet as he can be and despite his name, he prefers purring to loud sounds. He especially doesn't like the "loud sounds" of barking dogs....for that matter, he doesn't like dogs period, as we learned from a recent foster placement . So no dogmates for this fellow, please. Boomer had no problem with foster mom's cats and, in fact, got along well with them, so he says cats are OK.

Boris and Natasha
 

Boris and Natasha

Boris and Natasha's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Siamese or Siamese mix, DOB: 07/01/07

Boris and Natasha are very active, but not in the sinister way of their namesakes from the old Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoon show. These feline versions are just plain playful and cute.

Boris, a male, is the top kitten in the photo.

Natasha, a female, is the lower kitten in the photo.


 

Brooks and Dunne
 

Brooks and Dunne

Brooks and Dunne's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Brooks is gray and brown tabby with white.

These two little guys are cute and fun. Dunne is the smallest of Oreo's kittens. He and Brooks love romping and playing in one of the Colony rooms with the rest of their family.


 

Buddy
 

Buddy

Buddy's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male-neutered, Domestic Shorthair

Age: 5 years, Front Declawed

Buddy is new to PAWS. Here is foster mom's first report:

Buddy, one of the Center's gentlemen (i.e., gentle men) this year, could also be called Barnacle Buddy because of his "sticking" so closely to his foster parents. He acts as though he just can't get close enough. Very scared at the Center, he came into our home and immediately relaxed, purred until he nearly choked himself, daintily dined on his feline cuisine, and snuggled up with us for an evening of petting, brushing, and getting to know each other. We have since learned that he is a lap cat (if your lap is big enough) and needs no discipline or training whatsoever. Buddy is completely unruffled by anything that might frighten another cat. He interacts positively with our two resident cats, and is proving to be a perfect, well-mannered companion who would rather be with his foster parents than off doing his own thing. He's anxious to find his forever home so he can practice "sticking" to his forever parent(s).

Button, Spot, Stinker, Orca

Button, Spot, Stinker, Orca's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Males, Domestic Shorthairs, DOB: 04/15/07

From front to back:

Stinker is all black on the top of his head.

Button has the black dot on his nose and face.

Spot has a spot on his leg.

From foster mom:

When our foster mom first saw us, she couldn't believe how cute we were!

And we think that you may agree, right??? Here is what we have to say...

(Button) I was the first to be named, because of my "button nose"!

(Spot) You can't see it, but when you come to meet me, I will show you my spot!

(Orca) Now, see I am special, because I am named after a killer whale!

(Stinker) and then there is me, my mom really thought that we looked like a bunch of skunks. And since she couldn't name me 'skunker,' she looked at me and said you are just a little "Stinker". I just snickered to myself when she named me that because now I had a reason that I could be mischievous!

Come on in and see how cute we are!

Cedar
 

Cedar

Cedar's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female-spayed, Domestic Shorthair

DOB: 03/02, front declawed

Cedar is a pretty torbie....a striking combination of tortie and tabby. She has a sweet and still playful way about her as many adult cats do. As a newbie to the Center, she has spent a good part of her time under her bed and blanket rather than on top of it. But when she emerges, she tells us she's not shy at all! She bumps and rubs, purrs and head butts....perhaps she's just one of those "people" who like to sleep with the covers pulled up over their heads....specially in the damp, chilly days of autumn. Cedar isn't real fond of being picked up -- she'd rather come and settle in with you, which she will do quite readily if you just let it up to her. Carriers are not her favorite thing, but she's got a lot of company there! Looking for a mature, well-behaved, loving companion? Look no further. Cedar's your gal!

 

Chapin
 

Chapin

Chapin's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male-neutered, Domestic Medium Hair

DOB: 08/15/05


Meet Chapin! He's not the spikey punk-haired kid he looks like in this photo. He arrived at PAWS with his coat in sad condition, but already it's becoming elegant and shiny once again, as you can see by clicking for the larger photo. Another lucky PAWS kitty to spend the holidays in a foster home, Chapin won foster mom's heart from the get-go!



 SEQ CHAPTER \h \r 1

"Oh, wow, this guy is so ready for his Forever Home! He is the sweetest, most affectionate fellow to ever grace our home. Within a day of his arrival, he let it be known (loudly, so you know!) that he didn’t want to be in a cage, or for that matter, in a separate room. With fingers crossed, the door was opened to the wide world of 8 other cats and a dog. Chapin was totally cool and immediately made himself at home.
"He showed only curiosity about the others, and was unaware that his presence disturbed two of the resident cats. Chapin showed no signs of aggression, his only “fault” being his thorough enjoyment of play time... yep, he hogged the feather toys! To his credit, he slowly learned that he needed to take “time-outs” to let the other kitties play. He got too close to the senior female once, and she nailed him with a claw (sorry about the missing fur on your face, Chapin!). After that, he was a little more tuned in to where the other cats were, and by the end of the foster period, all the cats accepted his presence with no problem.
"Feeding Chapin was a challenge. He’s a skinny little guy, but he just didn’t seem to like any of the dry or canned cat food choices available, including what he was eating at the PAWS Center. We did discover that he LOVED the dog's canned food mixed with kibble, so for the first time ever, the dog food had to be kept away from the CATS....a real switch! Chapin apparently developed a love of milk in a former home. He was very vocal whenever the refrigerator door was opened, and the object of the adoration was finally identified as the milk container. A soft touch, his foster mom gave him a teaspoon or so of milk each day. (Note: Since Chapin returned to the Center after the holidays, we discovered a food which he does like and which he’s been eating with enthusiasm).
"Chapin is a sweetheart. He would do wonderfully in a home with other cats and dogs and/or multiple humans or both. He really does love attention, and he enjoys interaction with other animals. Even my shyest cat was won over by his playful, non-aggressive approach to everything. He was happy to see any and all visitors, and came to anyone for a petting and leg rub. He would probably be lonely or bored if he were an “only” cat in a single person household, and might prove to be too demanding of attention for a single person."

Chayanne
 

Chayanne

Chayanne's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male-neutered, Domestic Shorthair

DOB: 02/15/06

Dear "little" Chayanne! During our Fall "pumpkin" promotion, Chayanne was dubbed the "Great Pumpkin in Waiting"! Chayanne was the lone orange tabby in Selena's 7 kitten litter that is pictured on the "Kittens" post at the bottom of the page. He's grown quite a bit since that photo was taken and promises to be a pretty BIG fellow. (At 10 months of age, he tips the scales at a whopping 12.5 lbs.)!


Where in the world did he get that name, you ask? According to the volunteer who named him, all 7 kittens were named after Latin singers. And it's pronounced Cayenne...as in the pepper...although his foster mom says he'll answer to anything! Chayanne is a handsome, funny, playful, growing boy who absolutely loves attention but can keep himself entertained without humans too. Why not have some fun and adopt the future Great Pumpkin?


 

Chopin

Cocoa
 

Cocoa

Cocoa's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female (spayed), Domestic Shorthair

DOB: 04/06/05, Front declawed

Cocoa is a busy gal at the center. If you sit and visit with her in a Meet and Greet room, it won't be long until she's on your lap asking for attention.

 

Cola
 

Cola

Cola's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male-neutered, domestic shorthair

DOB: ~07/20/06

This handsome grey and white tabby with touches of beige is a purr machine from his dark little nose to the snow white tip of his very long tail. He's an active, energetic boy who likes attention. The word "rambunctious" fits him to a "t". He thinks he's king of the center, but he's a very lovable people-friendly king. And to think he started out as a frightened kitten! If you're looking for lots of fun and energy in a cat, Cola's your boy.

Coleus
 

Coleus

Coleus' Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Sweet Pea's Flower Kittens's bio at the time of adoption: D.O.B. 6-27-07

With a mom named Sweet Pea, flower names for these little ones are appropriate indeed! But.... oh dear! One of them has a green ear! And another one has a red ear! What in the world did these kittens get into?

Here's what foster mom (who color coded their ears so she could tell them apart :) has to say about them:

Kittens

Sweet Pea’s six kittens are extraordinary (foster parent bias, of course). They are very happy kittens and, unlike most litters that “pair up”, they have all remained extremely close. They are active, playful, curious, spirited, intelligent, well socialized and looking forward to expanding their horizons in homes of their own.

Coleus (Cole—gray with red ear mark)—the first of the litter to do everything; the first to eat solid food, drink water from a bowl, use the litterbox, give himself a little kitty bath, explore his room, thus setting the example for his brothers and sisters.

Columbus
 

Columbus

Columbus' Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male, Domestic Shorthair

~DOB: 07/11/07

Columbus is one of the "explorer" kittens along with siblings Maggie and Dora who was recently adopted. They earned their "explorer" title by going on their very own, very brave expedition within the safe confines of the intake room at PAWS. Ask a volunteer to tell you the story!

Columbus will warm your heart with his loud purrs and snuggly ways. He loves attention once he realizes that you mean no harm. He likes to check things out and quickly adjusts to new situations. He even eats and drinks out of the same bowl (and at the same time!) with one of foster mom’s big dogs!


 

Cooper
 

Cooper

Cooper's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Domestic shorthair, Male-neutered

DOB: 08/17/03, Front declawed

I'm a handsome, delightful, caramel tabby with white markings who'd love to be loved by you. It's okay here at PAWS, but it's pretty boring and for lack of exercise, I'm putting on too much weight! I need to run and play, do stairs, jump up on windowsills to watch the birds...all the good stuff you can't do here. I know my future family is out there somewhere, and I sure hope they help me fly this coop real soon.


 

Cranberry
 

Cranberry

Cranberry's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female, Domestic Shorthair

DOB: 10/08/07

"A lovebug with lots of character" is how foster mom describes this beautifully colored and patterned little tabby. "She's a firecracker! Alert, intelligent, Crannybear figured out how to escape her room the first day she was here. Active she is, but becoming more affectionate each day."

 

Cypress
 

Cypress

Cypress' Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female-spayed, Domestic Longhair

~DOB: 08/21/03




This sweet and affectionate calico cat will be even more beautiful once her lovely coat grows back in. Some little leprechaun must have given her a clip job. All long haired cats require regular brushing and combing to save them from leprechauns having to remove uncomfortable and hopelessly matted fur.. Please consider this grooming requirement if you'd love to adopt this friendly, front declawed soon to be glamorous again cat. She's very sweet and gentle.

Davide

Davide's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male (neutered); Domestic Shorthair

DOB: 05/14/06

"Well, much as I really wanted to go to Wiscoy, once I got there, I wasn't too sure about it. I'm not quite as outgoing as my brothers and all the activity was a little unsettling. But I must have done something right 'cause, as Rembrandt told you, the two of us stayed here at the store until....well, until BINGO....we found a lifetime dancin' partner! Both of us...TOGETHER...dancin' off to a home of our own! -- Davide


Not to be outdone by Rembrandt, Davide is dressed in his tuxedo too. Perfect! Michelangelo would be so proud. And look at that face! How could anyone resist a face like this???

Domestic Shorthair


"Come meet me at the center, please!" says Dublin. This handsome boy is a playful, friendly and fun cat. He'll keep you entertained. He hopes for an adopter who will enjoy his energy and spirit. Here's a photo showing Dublin's playful side being king of the hill--well, at least king of the cat tree.

 

Duke
 

Duke

Duke's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male-neutered, Domestic Shorthair, Front-declawed

DOB: 07/11/04

Duke is such a nice guy and is just waiting to feel happy and secure in his new forever home. He's used to being a pet and is looking forward to being one again. He's extremely gentle. He might seem a little shy at first at the center, but if you want to see him perk up and love you immediately, just shake a bottle of Aquariyums cat treats and watch his reaction. In a home setting, Duke is very attention seeking and loves to play.

Dune Buggy
 

Dune Buggy

Dune Buggy's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Domestic longhair, male (neutered), front-declawed

Age: 6-1/2 years

How this quiet, gentle soul came to be named after a noisy little nuisance to peace-seeking beach goers is a mystery. If there's a story to tell and we find out what it is, we'll be sure to pass it along. Looking at "Dune" certainly does evoke images of sun, surf and, of course, the dunes. What a warm and lovable companion he'll be when he emerges from his hideaway in the sand.

Dune Buggy is new to the center and is just a wee bit nervous. So he built a sand castle around and on top of himself with his beach towel and bed, his nose ever so occasionally coming up for air. He's receptive to attention, though, and gives every indication of having a wonderfully SOFT motor.

More as we get to know this handsome boy.

(And what a wonderful guy Dune turned out to be!)

Ebony

Ebony's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male(n), black, front-declawed

D.O.B. 7-4-99

Hi everyone….I’m back! Just couldn’t stay away! I actually missed this place and I especially missed my Lonely Hearts Club friends (although several of them are gone now). You may recall that I was the founder and first chair of “the Club”. In my absence Ginger and Lillian served quite capably in my stead, but now that they've both found homes of their own, I guess the gavel comes back to me. I'll do my best to follow in their footsteps (hopefully to a new home too!).


What happened is that last fall, I went into “long-term foster care”. Whew, after a full year at the Center, I was outta here! Sometimes these arrangements end up being permanent, sometimes they don’t. You may remember Bo and Quaffle (now Ben) and Keno? They all were adopted by their long-term foster families. In my case, that didn’t happen, so here I am…again. At least I’m happy that the corner of the office desk was held open for me! Curling up there so I can help volunteers with their paperwork is my favorite pastime.


For those of you who don’t know my story, I lost my original home because I have a common medical condition that requires a special diet and occasional medication if I have a flare-up. My owners had trouble with this and decided to have me euthanized, but fortunately, PAWS was there for me. My condition has been treated successfully by diet alone ever since I came here, and although I’d sure love to have something different to eat once in awhile, I understand that I can’t. Not even one treat. This is important.


I’m a good guy…a little quiet, but after all, I’m not a kitten anymore. In my foster home, though, I loved swatting feathers on a stick, nailing a leather shoestring, and – my favorite – chasing the little red dot from a laser toy. I may not BE a kitten, but foster dad had me playing like one sometimes! Then I’d have to take a nap. I like to be petted, combed, and have someone to sit and talk to. I’m not a lap cat, but I do appreciate attention, intelligent discussion, and rubbing up against my person. I’d SO like to go to a real home, preferably a quiet one without small children or other animals. I’d be perfect for someone who works from home and spends a lot of desk or computer time. If someone has a spare corner of his (or her) desk, or needs a furry black paperweight, I’m your guy! Wherever I go, this time I want to stay forever. I know my special person is out there somewhere….I just hope he or she finds me soon.
1-5-07 -- "At last, at last, AT LAST! I knew the first day I walked into this new foster home that THIS IS THE ONE! This is the family who will love me and adopt me....and, ya know what? THEY DID! I'm so, so happy." -- EBONY

Fern
 

Fern

Fern's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female (spayed), Domestic Shorthair

DOB: 05/18/04


This lovely young momcat earned her name when a PAWS volunteer saw her in amongst the ferns at her parents' home. Fern had been in the neighborhood for awhile, but was too scared to come close to people. The volunteer decided it was time to take matters into her own hands when she saw two tiny kittens poking their heads out of the ferns as well.


As scared as Fern was, she turned out to be a terrific and loving little cat. Her two adorable kittens, Lucy and Ethel, were adopted nearly immediately after being shown at PAWS. Now Fern is permanently out of the mom business and ready to reclaim the kittenhood she missed out on.

Friday
 

Friday

Friday's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male (neutered), tabby & white

D.O.B. 4/9/02

It’s “Friday!” TGIF :) Friday is one of those cats who never liked being at the Center. At first, it was his very male hormones causing him to bully the other cats. Once that was resolved and he’d spent quality time in a foster home, he just turned into an old grouch the minute his foster parents hauled out his carrier on Saturday mornings. HE knew where he was going! So he chose to remain an old grouch ‘til they came to retrieve him Sunday night, hoping he wouldn't be invited back ever again. Some of us humans probably would be grouchy too if we were on display here!


In a relaxed household, Friday fits right in. His foster mom and dad AND their dog can vouch for that. He really is a TGIFridays kind of guy who would enjoy living in a laid-back atmosphere where he can play, pounce, explore, and then curl up next to his people when day is done. Is all the devilishness gone? Of course not…who wants a cat anyway that doesn’t have a certain amount of “catitude”?


Friday spent the recent holiday break at the Center and…Good Friday!…a metamorphosis?? As one of just 9 cats staying at the “hotel”, Friday turned on the charm, relaxed, made himself at home and was just the best boy ever! He still preferred not to be caged, but he made no waves being out and about and he played quite nicely with the other cats. When it was time for him to go back to his hotel room, remarkably no fuss at all. Having previously resisted volunteers’ attempts to pick him up, he was totally cooperative. Hey, a really new and improved Friday! This is much more like the fellow he is at home…..what a huge hurdle for him to have overcome!


Friday has been hangin’ on as a PAWS cat for far too long….it’ll be two years in April. If he can just manage to sustain his new Center profile when the place is crowded, maybe the right visitor will notice this really neat cat. Could you be the one who gets to wake up every day, look at this smart, handsome face, and whisper gratefully “TGIF”?


AT LAST, Friday has found his forever home....with his loving, long-term foster family. He's officially been....

Gabby
 

Gabby

Gabby's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Domestic Shorthair, Female (spayed)

DOB: 10/01/06

This shiny and sweet tuxedo is very affectionate, outgoing and loves to be petted. She likes being brushed and loves to play! She'll even dance on her hind legs to catch a dangling toy. Appropriately named, she is rather gabby and VERY curious....nosey? She absolutely must check everything out.

An extra large litterbox is highly recommended for Gabby -- she scratches in her box with the same degree of enthusiasm she shows for everything else. She's also very good about using her scratching post.

Gabby came to the Center with her good friend Mailee, but Mailee has gone to a new home without her. Gabby's pretty confused at the moment, but eventually, we're sure she wouldn't mind finding a new buddy....human, feline or BOTH!

Despite efforts to locate her owner, no one has come forward, so Hampton (good name for her, don't you think?) is now a PAWS kitty and is available for adoption.

Just in from Hampton's foster mom...

Hampton was spayed on the 26th of Feb. She is interacting with my cats and is 90% ok with my dog now. She has calmed down some and likes to sleep on my bed or sit on my lap when I am in my office. She is a sweatheart, still loving the laser pointer and chasing around the house with the younger of my two cats.

~DOB: 08/02/07

Hanover, found alone as a 3-week old kitten at Hanover plant in Centre Hall, was merged with Sweet Pea's flower kittens & quickly became the pampered little brother. A quick study, he learned feline behavior from his new brothers and sisters & then added his own special panache. Initially his foster family dubbed him "Dozer" because he had the strength and pushing ability of a bulldozer, but they soon came to realize those qualities were coupled with an indomitable spirit and determination. Wide awake & lots of fun, he can fall asleep in an instant, preferably in his foster's dad's arms. This tiny tike will bring loads of love and laughter to his forever family.

Look who's back! It's Harmony! This dear little cat has had quite a long journey since arriving at PAWS in January of 2006. After learning that she had some health issues, she went into a long-term foster home for what we thought would be hospice care. But, miracle of miracles, our Harmony has just now been given a clean bill of health! This in no small measure is due to the loving, good, and persistent care of her foster mom and to medical care and advice too, of course. Her vet thinks she can be someone's loving companion for another 10 or more years!

L. Belle
 

L. Belle

L. Belle's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female (spayed), Domestic Shorthair

DOB: 02/10/04


(Bio courtesy of her fosters):

L. Belle, almost 3 years old, is a lovable gray and white mom-cat

who arrived at PAWS around the 4th of July with her 3 kittens after giving birth under a volunteer's porch. She was a wonderful mom to her own kittens and nursed other motherless ones as well.


L. Belle is serene, gentle and curious and a delightful cat to live with. She appreciates strokes and head rubs, and rewards with a great purr. She gets along well with other cats in her foster home. We suspect Belle would do well with children given her great disposition, but like most cats shys away from loud noises and quick movements. All-in-all, Belle is an exceptionally sweet cat and would bring years of happiness to all those in her forever home.


Belle would be a wonderful only cat or as a member of a multi-cat family.

(She is being fostered with one of her kittens, Liberty, and they get along

very well together if you are looking to adopt two cats who already know and like each other.)

Libby is a little shy, but given time in a forever home she'll grow out of that. After 3 weeks in her foster home, she's investigating her surroundings with no fear! She gets along with other cats, but needs a little time to get used to them. We believe she'll be child-friendly, but like most cats, she shys away from loud noises and quick movements. All-in-all Libby is a special cat with an endearing disposition.

Little Girl
 

Little Girl

Little Girl's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Domestic Shorthair, Female (spayed);

D.O.B. ~3-1-06

For the past month, the Center's "Wild Woman of the West" has been in a foster home. As so often is the case, a whole new side of this gal's personality blossomed with freedom, space and foster parents to dote on her. Here 's a hot-off-the-press Easter morning report:

"For the last four weeks, we've had the pleasure of getting to know Little Girl as a mature, adult cat, "pleasure" being the key word! After initially exploring every nook and cranny of our house at top speed, L.G. (as everyone knows her) has calmed down and settled into a comfortable routine. She is a very affectionate "people" kitty, choosing to spend all her time with her foster family rather than curling up somewhere alone. She's definitely "daddy's girl”, contentedly stretching out on his legs for hours, but she also enjoys curling up on foster mom's lap while "mom" is working at the computer.
"L.G. is extremely intelligent and needs very little training or discipline, very quickly learning what is acceptable behavior and being careful not to repeat mistakes. She loves to be brushed and keeps herself and her surroundings very neat and clean. She is not territorial, and after some initial swatting and hissing, she now gets along very well with resident cats Daisy and Diamond, even doing things to spare their feelings. Little Girl has enough kitten left in her to still be curious and interested in everything. She plays until she is played out, still loving anything on a stick, but she also amuses herself by chasing miniature furry mice.
"She seems to adjust to new circumstances and situations quite agreeably, never whiny, pouty, or balky. Our weekly trips to the Center have shown her to be a great traveler, loading very easily into her carrier and never making a sound or fuss. She's been lots of fun and given us many laughs, and while we really enjoy having her, we know she'd like a family of her own to love and amuse forever. She is at the perfect age--enough kitten to be fun and enough mature cat to be a loyal, loving companion!"

Luna
 

Luna

Luna's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female (spayed), Domestic Shorthair

Age: 11 months

One of this year's momcats

Also known as "Luna Rae", this pretty little grey girl has touches of white. She's scared and shy at the Center, but having been in a foster home for several weeks, she learned that life can and should be fun for a young cat. In a short time, Luna became fully integrated and one with the resident cats and began endearing herself to her foster dad.

Please visit her, pet her head to toe even though she might look like it's the last thing she wants, and soon you'll hear a wonderful purr. Luna has come a long way, but she'll still need time, patience and a gentle, nurturing hand in her forever home.

 

Lydia
 

Lydia

Lydia's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female (spayed), Domestic Shorthair

DOB: 05/25/06

1-20-07

From Lydia's foster mom:

"Lydia is a pretty little gal who loves to play and would delight in being adopted into a family where she would have another feline friend to play with. She has a wonderful, affectionate personality, and loves to curl up on my lap to sleep the day away. She enjoys looking out the window, playing with cat teasers, and purrs her heart out when you brush or comb her. Although Lydia is a lap cat, she doesn’t like to be picked up too much, and really doesn’t appreciate being held in your arms on her back. (I heard her hiss at someone at the center when they did this; she wasn’t happy)."

Lydia is on a special diet for a sensitive stomach, and so long as she stays on this diet she’s just fine. Her food can be purchased in the grocery store (it is not a prescription diet) and can be eaten by other household cats, so you needn't worry about feeding separate diets. But if your other cat is used to something else and resists making the switch, PAWS volunteers can suggest ways for you to train multiple cats to eat separately. It's not hard at all.

Maggie
 

Maggie

Maggie's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female, Domestic Shorthair

~DOB: 07/11/07

Maggie, a feminine version of explorer Magellan, is one of the "explorers" (truth is, at first we thought she was a boy)! Maggie and her siblings Columbus and Dora, who was recently adopted, earned their "explorer" title by going on their very own, very brave expedition within the safe confines of the intake room at PAWS. Ask a volunteer to tell you the story!

Maggie is still a little shy--until you pick her up and give her some love--then purr, purr, purr! Maggie is cautious and carefully explores everything in her path!


 

Magic
 

Magic

Magic's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female (spayed), part-manx (~8" tail)

~DOB: 09/05/95

At last, we get to see Magic's beautiful face and eyes. If you'll recall, she was hiding her face in her very first PAWS photo. She's still rather shy at the center, but is so gentle and just waiting to blossom in her very own secure forever home. At her foster home with one of our wonderful fosters, Magic's sweet personality immediately shines through. She still likes to bury herself under her bedding and does this with great skill. You cannot detect a single pleat on the blanket! But soon she comes out and craves attention, remaining purr-fectly still in your arms, her motor running the whole time.

A vet exam revealed that Magic has thyroid disease and will need to be on medication for the rest of her life. The good news is that Magic is very easy to medicate, and after just a month on the med, her condition is under control. She recently had a dental and lost quite a few teeth (Ouch!), but she came through with flying colors and has no problem eating canned food or dry food moistened with a bit of water.

We often say that the cat you see at the Adoption Center and the cat at home are two different cats entirely. To learn what a dear girl Magic is, we recommend that you see her in her foster home. Please consult with any volunteer to arrange to meet her there.

 

Mailee
 

Mailee

Mailee's Bio at the Time of Adoption:


Domestic Shorthair, Female (spayed)

DOB: 10/01/06

Mailee wants all the toys. She will share them with her good pal Gabby though. Mailee is much more reserved than Gabby, but she is also very affectionate. She will need to be introduced to her new family and to new areas of the house more slowly, letting her set her own pace. Gabby and Mailee are not siblings, but they're a great team and their personality differences make them all the more interesting and fun to be around.

May
 

May

May's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female (spayed), Domestic Medium Hair

~DOB: 09/01/06

June 18, 2007

From May's foster mom:

Symmetrical markings make May look as though she is wearing a necklace, long evening gloves and earrings -- all dressed up and all girl! But this little girl can play as hard as any little boy -- rough and tumble, somersaults and acrobatics…fun, fun, fun. After finding and playing with literally every kitty toy in the house, which she likes to hide under towels in her room or any area rug close by, May can then amuse herself with non-kitty items for hours, only to start all over again. Endless energy enables her to fly around the house, finally landing mid-way up the patio screen door looking like a Garfield stick-up, after which she drops lightly to the floor and gives her prettiest girl look to foster mom.

Although not yet a lap cat, May has become a great deal more affectionate during her stay with us, preferring to keep us company wherever we are, at times curling up in my arms and sleeping for short periods with us in our bed. She has quickly become part of the family, getting along very well with two resident cats and fitting seamlessly into the family routine. She is exceptionally obedient, extremely intelligent, and adjusts very quickly once she learns what is expected of her. She is trained to a scratcher, is very neat and clean about her person, and is happy to be brushed and have her nails clipped.

May required medication when she first arrived at our home and was disagreeable, but not uncontrollable, about receiving it; however, she quickly learned that the more she cooperated, the faster she was done and off to play, so administering meds became a very smooth, quick process. May is a great traveler and actually seems to enjoy it, craning her neck to see out of the carrier to the world beyond. She may be a little unpleasant at the Center because, like some of our other feline friends, she doesn't really like being there. But at home she is a pure delight -- a pretty little tomboy…femininity and fun all rolled up into one.

Melody
 

Melody

Melody's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female (spayed), Domestic Shorthair, approximate DOB: 04/04/04


A pretty girl is like a Melody, and Melody is a very pretty girl. Melody is also a very scared little girl. You see, she lived alone outdoors for some period of time....we don't know how long...and is still wary of being inside and with humans again. Currently in a foster home, she is making progress every day with the help of her foster dad and former PAWS cat "Ollie" who obviously has a huge crush on her! Ollie brings his favorite toys to the door of Melody's room, pushes them underneath and then, with his paw, teases her to push them back to him. When the door is left open, Ollie takes one of these treasures into the room, sidles up to Melody and then, using the toy, tries to tempt her to come out and explore. You see, Ollie was very scared himself and is determined to help this pretty new kid over the hump. Foster dad watches in amazement as the process unfolds and Melody’s confidence grows. He has fostered many scaredy cats over the years, but this is the first time that another cat has taken total control of the socialization process. Slowly Melody is learning to trust her cat friend and her human friend, and in a few more weeks she just may be ready to take on the Center. Stay tuned. 5-08-06


(Indeed Melody did "take on" the Center, found herself a boyfriend by the name of Bond, and seemed to know precisely when to reach out to a delightful young couple who took her under wing, i.e., to a new home of her own).

Meltdown
 

Meltdown

Meltdown's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Meltdown came to PAWS as a little stray sickly kitten with many health problems. He was lovingly nursed back to good health by his foster mom. Luckily for Meltdown, he stole her heart at first sight and she fell in love with him and they are both living happily ever after together.

The Rest of the Story ...

 

Mia
 

Mia

Mia's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

PAWS is asking for your help in placing a former PAWS kitty named Mia. Mia is an active, affectionate and healthy young cat who is FIV+. The FIV virus is contagious to other cats (but not to people or dogs), so she must go to a home with no other cats or to one with other friendly FIV+ kitties. Cats testing positive for FIV can live long, healthy lives, but cannot be allowed to go outside because of the risks to their health as well as to other cats. Mia has never been around children, so it's probably best that she go to an "adults only" family.


Mia is a 2 1/2 year old, spayed female brown tabby with beautiful green eyes. She is used to other cats in the family, loves people and likes having her chin and belly rubbed. Mia "trills" when she communicates and follows her people around like a dog. She enjoys being held, but is not a lap cat.....there's too much to do and too many things to play with! Mia has been consistently vetted with the same local practice, and her veterinarian is willing to talk about her FIV+ status to any prospective new families.

Midge
 

Midge

Midge's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female (spayed), Domestic Medium Hair

DOB: 05/25/06

Midge was PAWS’ health focus cat for the March "Wearin' o' the Green" promo and apparently she did have the luck of the Irish. She’s doing much better physically, and we’re hoping that her progress continues so she soon can start looking for her very special forever home. Here is Midge looking beautiful in her foster home!!
Although Midge isn’t always feeling 100%, you would never know it. This little lady is full of love!! Midge’s philosophy…start the day with kisses!!! She begins every day by making sure everyone gets special kisses from her. First, foster mom gets face rubs and tons of purrs, then Midge finds the resident dog (whom she loves) and they nose kiss and do a couple of zoomies, and finally she seeks out the 3 resident cats and makes sure each one of them gets a nose rub and head butt.
Midge loves to chase strings, watch the birds, and run through the house. She’s a little explorer, but when the exploring is done she wants nothing more than to be right where you are! Sitting on your lap, and getting brushed is her very favorite thing. And you’ll be blessed with lots of purrs!
Midge currently is in long-term foster care while we continue to explore dietary changes for her. She has a sensitive stomach and we haven't come up with the ideal food choice for her yet, but we seem to be getting there. Although Midge isn’t officially available for adoption, anyone interested or wanting more information about this beautiful little girl can ask any volunteer!!
Health issues resolved and Midge was adopted by her extraordinarily loving and forever devoted foster family!

Mosi
 

Mosi

Mosi's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female (spayed), Domestic Shorthair

Age: 3 years

From Mosi's foster mom:

July 17, 2007

Meet "Super Mom"! This little girl had a litter of her own on Easter Day (Privy, Hamilton, Hudson, and Squeak). The very next day, she added two more kittens who needed a mom. Since then she has accepted a litter of four, a litter of two and one single little girl! Phew...what a crew! Some of the kittens just needed a mom figure to teach them how to eat and play nicely...others needed a little bit more care from Mosi and she was only too happy to provide it.

Mosi is a really nice, affectionate cat. She loves attention, petting and being picked up, but I doubt she will be a lap cat. She reminds me of a mountain lion -- her face has the shape of a mountain lion and she moves like one. She is quiet...and regal sort of.


Mosi greets me and runs toward me when I first go into her room which is where her food is (otherwise she has full access to the house and all the other animals). She has come down with the dogs and if they ignore her, she is fine with them. She growls at the adult cats, but they growl too. I can't say that she "gets along" with them, but they co-exist with no problems.
Mosi will be a great companion cat in a home of her own, preferably one where she'll be on the receiving end of all the mothering. It's her turn now!

Moxie
 

Moxie

Moxie's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male-neutered, Domestic Shorthair

DOB: ~03/07/02


From Moxie’s Foster Mom:
Moxie is a Character!
If you want a cat with personality to spare, take a long look at Moxie. He might seem pretty passive or indifferent in a cage but he is active and playful at home.


Physical Information:
Moxie doesn’t have a tail. The veterinarian who performed the operation calls him her “manufactured Manx!” For quite some time, vets thought he had food allergies because he kept biting at the top of his tail. Finally, his current doc diagnosed cauda equina, a rare disorder affecting the bundle of nerve roots at the lower end of the spinal cord. Since his surgery over a year ago, he has been totally fine and has no trouble running, jumping, or doing any other cat activities that require balance. He doesn’t appear to have any food allergies at all. However, he’s more allergic to fleas than the average cat, so his home should be kept pest free or he’ll need to be treated for some serious itching!
Personality:
I can only describe Moxie as a very loving cat. If you pick him up, he’ll mold himself to your neck and chest and snuggle. But he’s not “needy”….he doesn’t have to be underfoot all the time! He’s also a very smart cat and benefits from plenty of toys and exercise. And he sleeps really hard when he’s done!
Moxie likes to be the boss (you may feel a scab or two on his neck from him scrapping with my cats). He spends his days fully integrated with my five cats and gets along pretty well (my house has plenty of places for cats to hang out if they want to escape each other), but I think he would do better as a single cat who gets all the attention, or in a household with maybe one or two others who aren’t too dominant. He’s been exposed to and is good with dogs, in my experience. I have an Irish setter so he’s at least used to big ones!
Moxie will provide the right person or family with a funny, intelligent, loving companion.

FOXIE MOXIE you did it! After all this time, you picked the person you want.....and oh what a Casanova you were! You wooed her and schmoozed her into total submission, didn't you? Quite a performance Foxie Mox. Today is the first day of the rest of your life! We're gonna miss ya guy, but we wish you the very, VERY best!

Brother Nick and now sister Nicole are GONE! Waaaaah! Poor little Natalie is a tad confused. "Why them and not me? I'm just as fun and adorable as they are!" At least Natalie has a loving foster home to go to during the week, but what she wants most is to see that word "ADOPTED" by her name too.

Noah
 

Noah

Noah's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male-neutered, Domestic Shorthair

Approximate age: 5.5 years

Noah is such a handsome fellow.....a somewhat larger version of Calvin actually. He's affectionate, does well with children, and loves to be petted and to play, 'specially when someone is at the other end of a wand or teaser toy. Noah had been a bit unsure of dogs, but his visit to Wiscoy has given him a whole new dog experience, and he now looks forward to their visits. We're not sure how he is with other cats, but we're guessing he'd rather not share his life with an "alpha" male.

Sometimes when you pet Noah inside his enclosure, he gives you that strange open-mouth look called the "flehmen" look. He's just studying the new smell presented to him, not getting ready to bite your hand off! But he'd much prefer being petted in a non-confining space, i.e., outside of his cage. He'd rather be out of his cage period! So much so that when the store is too busy for him to be allowed to roam on his own, he's content being carried about - anything for a change in scenery!

Noah is a real chow hound, so his new person will need to closely guard how much he eats. Although he'll devour as much as he can get, his digestive system does better with more frequent but smaller meals. Noah was used to spending time outdoors, and probably would like a home where he could enjoy a little safe outside time, but he doesn't appear to be overly upset remaining inside. He enjoys freedom from confinement, but he never makes a mad dash for the door.

Pepper's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male (neutered), Domestic Shorthair

Pepper loves to purr and give and get attention. His shy guy days are in the past! We have no idea how Pepper found himself in the "famous artists" named family, but he's handsome as can be with his shiny black coat, so that's a good reason, we suppose. "Sleek, black elegance, the secret of my charisma," says Pepper. Watch out for this guy....he just might steal your heart. :)


PS - Pepper's brothers, Rembrandt and Davide, found their forever home a few weeks ago, and Pepper's been a pretty lonely boy without them. He'd love for you to come and meet him.

Don't let my name fool you, I'm a gorgeous young lady and not a pinball wizard of the male gender. I'm fairly new to PAWS and am just getting adjusted. I think life might be okay here until a friendly person comes along and thinks I'm swell. I am front declawed. Please check back for more details as the PAWS volunteers learn more about my personality traits. One thing they've already learned is that I much prefer being called "Pinnie"!

Precious

Precious' Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female (sp), Domestic Shorthair

Approximate DOB: 03/30/01

Precious writes, via her foster mom:


"I'm too cute, in fact, I'm absolutely Precious! Once we become acquainted, I'm sure you'll agree that my name suits me. Yes, there's a cute little cat in here, although I may be hiding right now. I'm a bit shy, but as my foster mom will tell you, once you gain my trust, I turn into a 7-pound purring machine! I can go from fraidy cat to super companion in the blink of an eye! I have lots of love to give to just the right person.


"My ideal home would be a quiet one with no other animals (I didn't take very well to my host cat brother) and with someone with a calm lifestyle. I need to be reassured so that I can shed some of my fears and reach my full potential. Once you spend some time introducing me to my new environment, I'll come out of my shell and really enjoy playing with toys, eating catnip, using the scratching post and cuddling up for an afternoon nap with a special person!
"No diamond in the rough, I'm already a Precious gem!"

Female (will be spayed), Domestic Shorthair

Princess Peach was a devoted mom to her three handsome little boys. She was a protective mom, too, which made her a bit wary of people. We're anxious to see how her personality develops now that her kids all have left the nest. "Peach" is so deserving of her very own loving home, and will be available for adoption as soon as she has been spayed. Open your heart to a momcat, please!

Randall

Randall's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male (neutered), Domestic Shorthair

DOB: 05/19/06


“I’m Randall, but you may call me Randy Boy. I like that much better and in my foster home, I learned to respond to it in less than a week!
“Foster dad likes me so much he calls me 5-STAR RANDY BOY…the best of the best....a real “keeper” is what he says. I’m still pretty shy, but I’m very gentle and I love foster dad’s other cats. There’s one in particular – his name is Ollie – who brings toys to me and pushes them under the door to my room when I’m in there by myself. He knows I’m lonesome and brings me the presents to cheer me up. For the most part though, I’m already out and about the house with the rest of the family. I jump up on the bed and curl up beside foster dad or one of the cats, and I love joining the whole family in the kitchen for breakfast and dinner. I guess I get what they call “under foot”, so dad has to be real careful not to step on me. I’ll have to work on that…..I get so excited I just forget my manners.
“At the Center, you’ll probably find me still pretty uneasy – my first goal is to sit up in my enclosure and look people straight in the eye instead of trying to disappear through the back wall. Once I have that down, I’ll try reaching out to you and you’ll see what a friendly young fellow I really am. Just call me “RANDY BOY” and I might find the courage to come talk to you.”

Rebel
 

Rebel

Rebel's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male (neutered), Domestic Shorthair

DOB: 01/15/06

With his shiny, sleek black and white patterned coat, Rebel is a strikingly handsome young guy . He's alert, active, intelligent, and anything but boring! Here he's sitting on top of the world on the cat tree at PAWS. He definitely thinks he’s King of the Hill! Rebel is not particularly enamored of dogs, and although he's playful and affectionate, he's probably not a good choice for a family with small children. His habit of playing kinda rough has diminished substantially since he first went into his foster home, but his personality tends toward a more distant kind of affection than small children might understand (see comments from foster dad).

DOB: 09/20/05

Redford is the strong silent type and he's every bit as good-looking as his namesake! But rather than landing a film contract and seeing his name in lights, this poor fellow with the famous name landed on the road, lights out.....either thrown from a moving vehicle or hit by one. He was found trembling and traumatized and was rushed to the nearest veterinary hospital. To everyone's surprise, Redford had no physical or neurologiclal injuries. He was pretty scared for awhile, but already he's telling us, "I'm fine now. Get me out of this darned cage and put me back on stage where I belong!"

 

Regan
 

Regan

Regan's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male-neutered, Domestic Shorthair

DOB: 06/03/03

Rescued for the second time, on Memorial Day, this gentlest of giants has a rather colorful history. He was first trapped by “Ray” a little over a month ago. Ray’s choices, as he saw them, were: “dispatch” him; take him to a shelter with, in Ray’s thinking, the same outcome; take him to a farm 6.5 miles away.
Ray chose the latter, but two weeks later the big orange cat was back on his patio, snoozing 3 feet away from Ray’s cat, “Jed”. Ray was concerned for the health and safety of 14-year old Jed, and after all, this was the third summer the stranger had decided to camp on his doorstep. Ray looked at the postings for lost cats in his area, but found no one looking for a cat like the one who had adopted him and Jed.
Decision time again: “dispatch” him, or call Jack…an acquaintance and PAWS volunteer. Jack came to the rescue, on Memorial Day, and while waiting for Jack to arrive, Ray thought….I’ll name him “Reagan” ‘cause he really dodged a bullet this time! Being less than amused (although not convinced that Ray actually would “dispatch” the cat), Jack decided to at least change the spelling of his name.
From Jack: “How can a 4-yr. old, undernourished orange tomcat (now neutered) survive at least two winters in the wild, numerous obvious encounters with other cats and miscellaneous creatures, and be completely injury-, disease-, mite- and flea-free? How can he come directly from living entirely on his own to sleeping in my lap?!? This guy must be really smart…and really special.”
Special he is. Regan is one of the most laid-back, gentle, anything goes cats to ever cross the PAWS doorstep. You’ve gotta meet this guy!

"The special "formal" event at Wiscoy is now officially over, and guess what! On the very last day of the event, Davide and I got the date we were waiting for and went home together! Hooray! And thanks, Wiscoy, for making this possible by allowing us to live there for awhile." -- Rembrandt


Rembrandt, one of the PAWS "formal felines" in February's promo, is shown here all dressed up in his tuxedo, hoping to waltz his way out of PAWS and into a forever home. Outgoing, playful, and a real sweetheart, he was bound to be scooped up in a hurry....and yes indeed, he was!

My foster mom picks me up to snuggle and I’m always ready to snuggle her right back. I could be the one to greet you at the door (and maybe my brother too?) when you come home. I'm growing up fast -- don't miss out on my remaining kittenhood! Please pick me to be your lifelong friend.” -- Shadow

Hooray! HOORAY! It's Home for the Holidays ......and brother Teddy's coming too! We are SO happy....even though we're just a bit sore from "the" operation we had today . But home we go, ho ho, Ho Ho!. -- Shadow

Socrates

Socrates' Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male (neutered), Domestic Shorthair

~ DOB: 02/04

Not life, but good life, is to be chiefly valued -- Socrates


It sure wasn’t a good life for me when I was dumped in the middle of nowhere in the dead of winter. I tangled with other homeless cats, all of us trying to eke out a meager day-to-day existence, and by the time I found my way to PAWS, I was tired, hungry, frostbitten and beaten up.


A human called a "vet" treated me for “the worst case of earmites” ever and a host of other things. With all my battle scars, I looked pretty awful. My body and my spirit are healing now, but my ear will always be folded like this. Hey, it gives me character and makes me look like one of those "Folded Ear" purebreds! Oh, I still look a little scruffy, but foster dad says that doesn’t matter ‘cause I’m such a good kid. He thinks I’m very handsome….in my unique way. And the little white tip on my long tail adds a touch of class too.


Socrates is the name they gave me when I came to the Center. Guess I had to be pretty philosophical to face each day without giving up, so the name kinda fit. But foster dad and I worked it out that I would be called "Sami Boy". It was easier for him to remember and I do like the sound of it.


I’m sure you think I’m scared here in my cage….I am. To be honest, I’d rather be home with my foster dad and his family. I was scared there at first too, but I soon learned that it was a good place. Foster dad's cats already have accepted me, and I had a real nice playmate to show me how to act like a kitten kid again!


I'm a chow hound and love to talk about food…like when do I get to eat again? I love to play now that I’ve learned how, and I really like my dad’s lap and sleeping on his bed. I don’t have a very good purr motor yet – maybe it was stifled by the cold -- but it's coming along. Life is much, much better, but I really do need a home of my own. I’m ready to chow down and stretch out with you now.... if you’ll give me a chance. With a little time to get used to you, I know we can “chiefly value” a very good life together!


______________________


By all means get a cat; if you get a good one, you'll be happy. If you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher. ☺ – Socrates’ cat

Summer's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Domestic Medium Hair, Female (spayed)

DOB: 07/17/03

What's summer without a lovely breeze? Lonesome, that's what! Our beautiful Summer came to the Center with her "sister" Breeze. But Breeze has been adopted, leaving "sis" behind and understandably mystified. Summer is a lovely and friendly girl, one of a very few cats who tolerates, perhaps even enjoys being carried around like a baby. Summer needs to find someone to love her and take her home too...we hope for her sake it will be soon.


This is what a foster mom has to say about dear Summer:

"Summer stayed at my house for a few days as a short-term foster. She adapted well to a new environment and was a delightful kitty-houseguest. She is very talkative and affectionate. I took a couple of photos of Summer when she was staying at my house; however, it was a challenge to get her to pose for a photo because she would have much preferred to be sitting in my lap, kneading with her paws, and purring constantly. I hope that Summer will be adopted soon. She is a real sweetheart."

Missed the boat on Tulley and Finnegan (adopted earlier this year)? Well meet these two gentle giants, Sundance and Redford! Those are their formal names, but they're kind of used to being called Sunny and Tiger now. They will most likely answer to these nicknames used by their former owner. They're a little confused having just arrived at the PAWS center recently, but they are friendly and loving. It would be great if they could be adopted together since they've been together for a couple of years, but they may be adopted separately if need be. It might be hard to resist having two big lovable bundles of cat once you meet these guys!

Sushi
 

Sushi

Sushi's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female (spayed), Domestic Shorthair

Front declawed


As we all know, sushi can be an acquired taste. This Sushi has gotten a bit of a reputation at the shelter for having a lot of “cattitude” and for not being very fond of the other cats in residence. But if you sit down one-on-one with her, she is actually a shy girl in desperate need of someone to love and understand her. She can be warm and affectionate, giving kisses and head butts. Understanding her boundaries is key – she only likes to be petted on her head and neck and gets defensive if touched other places or for too long. Since we don’t know what happened to Sushi before she came to PAWS, this may be a defense mechanism that will fade with time and love. Sushi would do best in a quiet home with adults. Sushi has recently gone into a foster home where she is doing very well. One of foster dad's male cats (a cat with much "cattitude" himself) seems to have a crush on her, and to our surprise, she has so far accepted his advances. Stay tuned!

Sweet Pea's Flower Kittens
 

Sweet Pea's Flower Kittens

Sweet Pea's Flower Kittens' Bio at the Time of Adoption:

D.O.B. 6-27-07

With a mom named Sweet Pea, flower names for these little ones are appropriate indeed! But.... oh dear! One of them has a green ear! And another one has a red ear! What in the world did these kittens get into?

Here's what foster mom (who color coded their ears so she could tell them apart :) has to say about them:

Kittens

Sweet Pea’s six kittens are extraordinary (foster parent bias, of course). They are very happy kittens and, unlike most litters that “pair up”, they have all remained extremely close. They are active, playful, curious, spirited, intelligent, well socialized and looking forward to expanding their horizons in homes of their own.
Rosemary (black tabby with red ear mark)—the smallest of the six but hugely independent. She is the one to sit in the corner, posture perfect, while watching her siblings duke it out; but when she decides to join the fray, she does so in a big way, easily holding her own.
Heather (gray with no ear mark)—the second smallest but definitely the litter’s firecracker. Her philosophy: why walk or run when you can hop, hop, hop and why do anything slowly or moderately when you can do it at the speed of light?!! Even when she’s sleeping, she’s living life out loud.
Geranium (Gerry—gray with blue ear mark)—the litter’s cuddler, he is always the first one to want to be held, and if sleepy, will be quite content to take his nap in your arms. Also the most agreeable of the six, he was quick to socialize, making a connection with humans very early. Geranium has an application pending!


Coleus (Cole—gray with red ear mark)—the first of the litter to do everything; the first to eat solid food, drink water from a bowl, use the litterbox, give himself a little kitty bath, explore his room, thus setting the example for his brothers and sisters.
Vinca (Vinny—black with no ear mark)—second largest and protector, watching over his brothers and sisters, helping them when necessary, playing with each one of them, a big brother in every sense of the word.
Salvia (Sal—gray with green ear mark)—the largest of the litter and supremely easy going and laid back. Sal loves to eat, then play (especially with his mom), then be held (by his foster parents), then take a little nap, then do it all over again.

Teddy

Teddy's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male (neutered), Domestic Shorthair

DOB: 04/18/07

October 20, 2007

From Teddy, by way of foster mom:

“Hi, my name is Teddy. I am somewhat shy and wish I could be as brave as my brother Shadow. I do like to play with him and our toys….we really have fun together! Sometimes I snuggle with my foster mom, but when I’m at the Center, oh my….all I want to do is hide. You’ll have to ask for me or you might not see me under my blanket. Once I get to know and trust you, though, I will be your best fuzzy friend.” -- Teddy

Me too?? ME TOO! They want both of us! Oh my, oh my.....I just don't know what to say. I wanted SO much to go to a new home with my brother, but I didn't really think it would happen. Shadow was so much more outgoing than me from a cage, but when our new family took us into a quiet room, well.....they got to meet the real me. Thank you, PAWS volunteers, for every time one of you "pointed me out" hiding there under my blankets, and for encouraging people to look at me too. Happy holidays to all! -- Teddy

Yes, that's Thia, who delights us by doing a first-class imitation of a monkey on the cat tree at PAWS! Adopt this strikingly lovely teeny-bopper, buy a cat tree, turn off the TV, and let Thia entertain you with her monkey-perfect antics...like hanging upside down through the hole at the top of the tree. She's a hoot! Thia tells us a little more:

"Hi, my name is Thia. I'm a playful, energetic young cat who loves to follow you around! I'm constantly purring as you pet me, and I really love kids too. If you have a dog, it'll take me a little while to warm up to him, so I'd like to have a cat-only zone until I become brave enough to get to know him...or her. Of course, a family with no other animals or just a cat or two would suit me fine. I am pretty, adorable, and would love a new home that I can live in foever!"

-- Thia (as dictated to holiday foster mom, Teri)

Tiffany
 

Tiffany

Tiffany's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female (spayed), domestic medium hair, ~DOB: 09/12/04

(Bio updated January 19, 2007)

Tiffany came to PAWS in May 2005, giving her the "longevity award" among current PAWS cats. After spending four or five months scowling and swatting at anyone who paid her the slightest bit of attention, "Tif" went into a foster home, returning to the Center only on weekends. We strongly suspected that Tiffany at the Center and Tiffany at home would be different as day and night. And how right we were.

Tiffany's first ever foster parents described her as "an elegant, sweet and beautiful princess". "She is comfortable being indoors and spends most of her time watching people, keeping herself immaculately clean....and sleeping. If you hit the snooze alarm, don't worry....Tiffany will wake you, but always after she's heard the alarm go off. She welcomes the first one home at the door, giving your hand some 'bonus licks' while continuing to clean herself." Very unlike her adoption center demeanor, where she continues to be defensive and aloof. "Who can blame her for that?" said foster dad. "A princess should have her own territory, right?"

Tiffany's foster parents moved away last fall and "Tif" returned to living at the Center, not quite so scowly and swatty as before, but still doing little to sell herself to potential adopters. Tiffany is now being fostered by a PAWS volunteer and, to our delight, her report is strikingly similar to that of her first fosters.

"Tiffany is a wonderful cat," she says. "She uses her scratching posts and curls up at night in the kitty bed at the end of our bed. When we are not in bed, she makes herself at home right in the middle of it. She does get along with my cats (except for CeeCee - who hates everybody)." This is a new side of Tiffany that we'd just recently begun to see at the Center. We always thought other cats intimidated "Tif" when, in fact, she seems to enjoy playing with them and letting them chase her around!

New foster mom agrees that Tiffany isn't suited for a home with children who would want to pick her up and carry her around. She's not into that, nor does she like to be brushed, but she keeps herself very well groomed. She sits on top of the couch and watches everything that is going on and enjoys her "outdoor experience" through the patio doors. Tiffany will need some time to adjust to new people, but given a chance in a quiet adult home, feeling safe and loved, she'll make someone a lovely and loving companion. "PLEASE, somebody, just give me that chance," says "Tif".

* * * * *

"I kept telling everyone I'm a princess and that I needed a tiara so everyone would know. Finally, they bought me one and you know what?? The very next day a wonderful human walked in specifically looking for a princess! There I was, upfront, with my jeweled tiara shimmering in the morning light. She took one look at me and, AT LAST, I'll be moving to my very own castle! Well, I have to share it with this human...but I like her. She knew a princess when she saw one, didn't she?" :) --Tiffany

Tillie
 

Tillie

Tillie's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female (spayed), Domestic Medium hair

~DOB: 03/19/06

This friendly and oh so petite tortie is cute as a button. Who'd ever think she's already had her first birthday party?!

Tillie is very affectionate, but like so many cats, she prefers coming to you for attention rather than being picked up, carried about or put in your lap. Foster mom tells us that Tillie will climb into her lap and knead, bump and rub, and purr her heart out for a short time. But then she prefers to cuddle beside her rather than on her. Combing or brushing Tillie is a game....for Tillie! She thinks the brush is a toy, so let playtime begin! Actual grooming isn't nearly as much fun.

Tillie has been in her foster home for just three weeks, so the jury is still out on how she will do with other cats. Tillie has her own space and is allowed to be with the family's other two cats only under close supervision. So far, she's still pretty uneasy around them, perhaps because one of them is so big! (Interestingly, in a one-week interim foster, she played with the family's two cats and climbed in bed with foster mom and dad....AND their 19 pounder). It may be that the current situation will work itself out in time, or it may be that Tillie will do best as an only cat. She's so tiny that you could understand her feeling intimidated by the big guys.

If you've always lamented that kittens grow up too fast, choose Tillie. In size anyway, you'll have a forever kitten!

Tootsie
 

Tootsie

Tootsie's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female (spayed), Medium Hair

2 years old

She's TOOTSIE?? Nah, she’s Dustin Hoffman. HE’s Tootsie! Or….what do you get when you cross a famous actor with a dynamite set of whiskers, a coat of silk and to-die-for baby blue eyes? You get PAWS hottest momcat! Or….could it be Hoffman doing a feline flight of fancy this time? We’ll never tell…you’ll have to adopt her/him and find out for yourself!


Of course, if you weren’t at least a teenager in the early ‘80’s, you probably haven’t a clue what we’re talking about...which is the movie “Tootsie”...in which actor Hoffman morphs into a female soap star, thereby complicating his off-screen life to the delight of comedy lovers everywhere.


Fantasy aside, our beautiful Tootsie seeks a simple, uncomplicated life. At the age of 2-yrs., Tootsie is now separated from her “kids” who had demanded her undivided attention. Mom says it’s her turn for attention…and she'll tell you so at every opportunity. She loves to be petted and will entice you by rolling on her back. Scratch that belly and…..well, you'll simply fall in love. Tootsie has a very sweet disposition, loves to play and is absolutely perfect using the alpine (slanted) scratching board foster mom provided for her.


So adopt a feline femme fatale! If you end up with Dustin Hoffman, hey…the choice is yours. Keep him or bring him back. :)


 

Tropicana
 

Tropicana

Tropicana's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Female (spayed), Domestic Shorthair

DOB: 04/01/06

What a perfect name for this sweet and petite orange tabby! You don't run across too many orange females, so this makes Tropicana pretty special. She's also very friendly and affectionate, with a warm gentle purr, a bump-and-rub personality and a love of play.

Tropicana tried very hard to be a mom but lost all 7 of her babies in a futile attempt to bring them into the world. Found in obvious distress in the parking lot of a local restaurant, she was taken directly to a vet hospital for emergency care. While she recuperated in the home of a technician from the practice, attempts were made to find her owner....no luck. Tropicana had a rough time for awhile, but her indomitable spirit prevailed and her recovery has been quick and uneventful. And now, looking like a kitten herself, Tropicana is healthy, active and ready to find her forever home.

 

Tulley and Finnegan
 

Tulley and Finnegan

Tulley and Finnegan's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Males (neutered), Domestic shorthairs

DOB: 01/07/04

These two handsome big boys are a delight. “We are sitting on a literal ‘goldmine’ with these cats!” says a short-term foster mom.


Tulley and Finnegan are wonderfully interactive. They're tidy and quiet, and although they can be grumpy when they first see or smell other cats, they are quick to adjust. Former foster dad reports that they got along well with the family dog and enjoyed playful times with each other and, in a threesome, with the dog!


You can see that Tulley and Finnegan have a very close bond, so they absolutely must go "home" together. Think of the advantages….you know that they already get along and will provide company for one another when you're away. And you have purring in stereo!


2-10-07 -- "At last, we found the perfect family...or they found us....doesn't matter. They wanted us, we wanted them and we've gone home! One of our new young buddies even bought a brand new peacock feather for us out of his own money. We're really gonna like him! We'll miss all the wonderful people who've taken such good care of us, and we especially want to thank the kindergarten class of Saint Patrick's School in Newry for sponsoring us. This was very special. But finally, we're HOME!" -- Tulley and Finnegan


 

Valdez
 

Valdez

Valdez's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male (neutered), Domestic Shorthair

DOB: 09/05/01


Valdez was one of the lucky cats to spend the 3-week holiday break in a foster home. Following is his “report card” from foster mom:


"Valdez is a sleek and handsome black cat with striking gold eyes that stand out even from across the room. He’s a lively fellow who enjoys being chased, and the longer he was with me, the more playful he became. Valdez likes to show his affection by bumping or rubbing his head and, though not a lap cat, he liked to be close to where I was, often perching on the back of the couch behind me or stretching out nearby. The last week he was here, he would curl up on my pillow when I went to bed (which I loved!) and stay for most of the night.
"He got along with my other two cats, enjoying both chasing and being chased by them, and he became very vocal when excited or interested in something. He has good litterbox habits and overall was a great house guest during his stay here."

Vinca's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male, Domestic Shorthair

DOB: 6-27-07

Vinca, aka Vinny, is the last of Sweet Pea's "flower kittens" and is soon to become an "only child." He's probably thinking: "Waah! What about ME? Cole's soon gonna be gone and I'll be all alone. Mom's not even here--she's in a new foster home getting a breather from being a mom. Whatever am I going to do with no one--not even adopted brother, Hanover? I'm a cute fellow, have been "big brother" to all my siblings and look at the thanks I get. Please come see me right away!"

Whitaker
 

Whitaker

Whitaker's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male-neutered, domestic shorthair

Approximate 2007 age: 3 years

May 2007

From Whitaker via his former foster family:

"I'm a sweetheart who loves to be petted....I'll even stand on my hind legs to rub against your hand! I'm getting better about being held, but it's not my favorite thing. I'm a free spirit. I do a great panther impression....I'm sleek and stealthy....and notice my black nose! (You could also call me "ninja"). At the Center, my favorite spot is high on top of the cat tree waiting to pounce on an unwitting passerby. I never do....but I must say the thought has crossed my mind. :)

"I would do best in a quiet household where I can curl up peacefully next to my person. My foster parents highly recommend me. Won't you please take me home?"

Winston
 

Winston

Winston's Bio at the Time of Adoption:

Male-neutered, Domestic Shorthair

~DOB: 07/01/01

Front declawed

Winston is a friendly tuxedo who has lots of things he loves -- attention from his human, catnip, laser games, and sunning himself on a breezy windowsill. He would thrive in a single-pet household because he loves one-on-one attention and is shy with other pets. Winston and his previous housemate didn't get along very well, but it was never entirely clear which of the two would start what.

We'll be watching Winston at the Center to see if we can pick up his vibes with the other residents.

Zania would love to demonstrate this to her very own person in her very own forever home.
This just in from Zania's foster mom:
