Easy Like Selfie Sunday :)

Around here, we always try to get in at least a little bit of rest and relaxation on Sundays. Here's our own sweet Gracie showing off her easy skills, amidst some of the wonderful toys made by our sweet pals at 15 and Meowing, before we took them to PAWS for the kitties there. :)

Sundays are also a great day for taking selfies, and for participating in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, hosted by our awesome friends, the Kitties Blue, at The Cat on My Head. Today, our guest selfie is taken by a handsome mancat named Kipling.
This super friendly guy was living on the streets of Norwalk, Connecticut. He was hanging out near a VERY busy road, and getting food from kindhearted construction workers who would share bits of their lunches with him. But with autumn already upon us, and winter on its coattails, Kipling needs a safe, warm and loving forever home.

Kipling is neutered and current on his vaccinations. He has tested positive for FIV+, but please don't let that stop you from adopting this special dude. After all, "...FIV-positive cats can live normal lives both in quality and duration," even though "...they do take special care in terms of monitoring them for signs of infection..." (source: Kipling is currently in a loving foster home, where he is being totally spoiled. Read more about Kipling HERE. To meet Kipling, contact Ilona at

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Figaro!

Here's handsome, sweet and adoptable Figaro, playing with one of the awesome crocheted toys made by our awesome pals at 15 and Meowing (thank you, Kitties and Mom Ellen!). If you don't already know the whole gang there, you should definitely check them out! Anyway, back to Figaro... 
Figaro is amazing, and we're surprised he still hasn't found his forever home. He gets along with other cats, likes people, and is very playful. And just look at that adorable face! :) Figaro is about four years old, neutered, micro-chipped, current on his vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. Come meet him today!

Easy Like Selfie Sunday - Sparky 2

Hi there, everybuddy. My name is Sparky 2, and I'm one of the cats who are waiting at PAWS to find their happily ever afters. I was so excited when meowmeowmans and Tracey chose ME for today's Sunday Selfie!*
I was going for the "wistful" look. Did I do okay?

And here I am taking it easy after my selfie. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday, right? :)

Handsome and super-friendly Sparky 2 is about two years old. This happy-go-lucky gentle giant (tall and solid) gets along with most other cats, is fine with children, and would make a wonderful family pet. He's neutered, micro-chipped, and current on his vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. Please consider adopting this amazing mancat -- you, and Sparky 2 will be glad you did.

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Shippan

According to the sign on his cage door, handsome tabby Shippan is friendly, active and would make a terrific family pet.
As you can see from this picture, he's also pretty snuggly. And he enjoys reading, or at least "helping" his human pals (like Tracey), with reading.
Shippan is about 5 years old, neutered, micro-chipped, and current on his vaccinations. He has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. With Fall upon us, doesn't curling up on the couch with a book and Shippan sound wonderful? He's at PAWS of Norwalk, CT. Come meet Shippan today!

Easy Like Selfie Sunday - Zoe & Gracie

It's Sunday, and as we often do, we're joining the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, hosted by our pals, The Kitties Blue, at The Cat on My Head. Handling the selfie duties this week is our very own Gracie. She sure did a great job, didn't she?

And of course, no Sunday would be complete without some SUN, and a good old fashioned easy. Here's our other lovable housepanther (and Gracie's sister), Zoe, showing everyone how it's done. :) 

Gracie and Zoe, and their brother Moosey are all graduates of PAWS. If YOU'RE looking for a new best friend, there are still lots of awesome kitties waiting to be discovered...

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Bella!

And now, for your Wednesday enjoyment, here's our adoptable pal, Bella, whose name, very appropriately, means "beautiful" in Italian. :)
Bella is more than just a pretty face (and furs), though. She's also silly (especially on catnip!) and playful, when the mood strikes (would you believe a ballpoint pen is her favorite toy?). She's not a snuggly lap cat, but she does enjoy the company of humans she trusts. Tracey and I happen to be two of those humans, and we love hanging out with her! :)  Read more about Bella (including how to adopt her) here!

Easy Like Selfie Sunday - Miss Piggy

Our adoptable pal Miss Piggy is a queen of efficiency. Here she is, taking care of her Sunday Selfie* WHILE she's getting her easy on. Way to go, Miss P. :)

Here's hoping your Sunday is as easy as the one being enjoyed by Miss Piggy. And Happy Labor Day weekend to all of our friends and followers here in the United States!

* The Sunday Selfies Blog Hop is sponsored by our wonderful friends, The Kitties Blue, at The Cat on My Head blog. Be sure to visit to see who else is taking part in this week's selfie fun (and/or join the fun yourself!). :)

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Frijole

Our adorable friend Frijole was found wandering the streets, but this guy is no feral kitty. In fact, his snuggly and sweet nature makes us certain that he was somebody's cat at one point. Frijole loves laps, being pet and not having to worry about the issues that come with surviving outdoors. And just LOOK at that cute little tongue. :)

Frijole has some medical issues that are still being tended to, so he's not yet available to be adopted. UPDATE: Frijole IS available for adoption! :)  He's about 10 years old, neutered, microchipped, and current on his vaccinations.  He has tested positive for the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), but don't let that scare you off. FIV is NOT a death sentence.  In fact, many FIV-positive cats like Frijole live long, healthy and happy lives.  Won't you come meet this special guy today?
