(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Creamsicle

Our handsome, adoptable pal Creamsicle was the first to try out our new "Bird Catcher Pro" interactive cat toy.

We had a very spirited play session, and Creamsicle seemed excited to see something pretty close to 3-D Bird TV, right inside Cat Room 3!  As you can see from this collage, Creamsicle gives this toy an enthusiastic two paws up. :)

It's Raining Kittens!

It's been a mighty busy "kitten season" in our area.  As you might guess, that means PAWS is bursting at the seams with adorable babies waiting to find loving forever homes.  In hopes of helping these little ones find their happily ever afters as soon as possible (not to mention freeing up cage space so that we're able to take in more homeless cats), PAWS is holding a month-long Kitten Shower now through September 16.

The event features reduced adoption rates if you adopt a pair of kittens ($125 for both), or an even better rate if you adopt one kitten and one adult at ($100 for both).  There will also be a raffle, surprises, refreshments and free gifts for adopters.  Oh, and of course ... LOTS of sweet, silly and beautiful KITTENS of every size, shape and color. :)

The Kitten Shower kicks off this weekend.  Click here for all the details!

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Gracie and Zoe


A little pre-dinner fun, compliments of our very own Gracie and Zoe.  In the video, Zoe's first out of the chute, but Gracie doesn't play games when it comes to her wet food. Be sure to turn up the sound for extra giggles, and enjoy the show. *

* If the video doesn't play for you here, you can also check it out on YouTube.

Easy LIke Sunday - Snickers :)

Our gentle, beautiful and adoptable friend Snickers has decided to spend her Sunday in this nice, snuggly kitty bed.

 If you look behind her, and to the right, there's still some room in that other bed.  So ... who wants to join in on some rest and relaxation? :)

Happy Sunday, everybody!

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday :)

Check out our spunky little pal, Noname (pron.: No-nah-may), totally owning this cat tree. :) 

This pretty girl was found as a stray, and is about 6 months old.

She's friendly, playful, and full of energy. Noname is spayed, micro-chipped, and up-to-date on all of her vaccinations. She has tested negative for FeLV and FIV. And she's even cuter in person (come see for yourself)! :)

Easy Like Sunday

We hope your Sunday is as relaxing as the one being enjoyed by the PAWS cats.  Here are three of them - Brian, Lt. Uhura and Roger - who have already staked claim to their favorite lounging spots...

Lt. Uhura
Happy Sunday, everyone! :)

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Swizzle :)

We adore sweet and pretty Swizzle!  You probably remember her from our last post, when we shared that our friends at The Cat on My Head have made her an honorary Kitty Blue, and are sponsoring her until she is adopted from PAWS. :)

This gentle girl enjoys snuggles and being pet.

She also loves her track ball toy.

Swizzle is spayed, micro-chipped, and up to date on all her vaccinations.  She has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  She'd do well in a quieter home, without small children or dogs.  Won't you give beautiful Swizzle the happily ever after she longs for?

Thankful for Our Friends

We are so thankful for our amazing friends.

A couple of weeks ago, our pals over at Twinkletoe Tails celebrated Oui Oui and Mica Minnie Moo’s gotcha days by holding a commentathon (at their blog) and post-a-thon (at the Tabby Cat Club) to benefit the PAWS cats. Well, the events were a huge success, raising $100 to benefit the volunteer-initiated and -implemented “Habitat for Cats” catification project at the shelter. And THEN, another one of our close blogging buddies, Brian (of Brian’s Home) and his dad, matched that $100, turning it into $200 for PAWS! Is that cool, or what?

Big thanks to the Twinkletoe Tails gang (Oui Oui, MMM, Julie and Carlos, and their mom) and the crew at Brian’s Home (Brian, Sascha, Gracie, Zoe, Dolly, Kit, and Precious, and their dad and mom). We love you all, and are so grateful for your friendship, thoughtfulness and generosity. You’ll be excited to know that your generous gifts are the very first donations for “Habitat for Cats” at PAWS!

But our thank you train doesn’t stop there. Check out what some of our other blogging buddies did…

Recently, our close friend Sparkle the Designer Cat (and her human) held a highly successful commentathon to celebrate her birthday and World Cat Domination Day. With the $75 she raised, Sparkle chose to sponsor three cats – Patch, Sweet Pea and Oreo – who are waiting at PAWS for their forever homes! Pretty awesome, huh?

And THEN, our dear friends at The Cat on My Head, inspired by Sparkle and her human’s kindness, decided to sponsor a PAWS kitty, too! The Kitties Blue and their mom are sponsoring Swizzle. And they want to keep sponsoring her until she is adopted! They even made Swizzle an honorary Kitty Blue!

Thank you so much for sponsoring these amazing adoptable cats, Sparkle and the Kitties Blue. We appreciate and love you, and will do our best to keep you posted about how “your” kitties are doing.

And finally … thank you to everyone who took the time to post and comment to help make all of the events such a success. All of this wouldn’t have been possible without you.  Thank you all for your friendship, and for being YOU!

Have a great weekend. :)

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Buster :)

Buster is one of the sweetest, most gentle mancats we know. 

This handsome boy is 14 years young, and found himself at PAWS when his people moved and were unable to take him. :(

He loves scritches, being pet, and just hanging out. All the volunteers love him.

Now all he needs is a new happily ever after.

Buster is neutered, micro-chipped, and up-to-date on all his vaccinations. He has tested negative for FeLV and FIV.

Easy Like Sweet Pea

Check out beautiful and adoptable housepanther Sweet Pea, enjoying one of the shelter's awesome wall hammocks...

Here's hoping your Sunday is as easy as the one Sweet Pea is enjoying! :)

Sweet Pea is about 7 1/2 years old, and ended up at PAWS after her owner passed away.  She is (as her name suggests) super-sweet, gets along with other cats, and would do well in just about any home.  Sweet Pea is spayed, micro-chipped, up to date on all her vaccinations, and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.
