Our birthday wish for our special guy, meowmeowmans!

“Wrinkles mean you laughed, grey hair means you cared and scars mean you lived!”


Happy birthday my dear hubby, Kevin!

I look forward to sharing many more years of laughter, caring and living with you.

Love you! Tracey (and Gracie, too!)

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Griffith and Camden

Ragdoll sisters Griffith and Camden ended up at PAWS when their owner moved. Even though they're new here, it's already crystal clear to all of us that these gorgeous ladycats are friendly, sweet and gentle.

 Camden and Griffith are 8 years old, and MUST be adopted together. They were badly matted when they arrived at the shelter, so both recently got a much-needed grooming that included a "lion cut." Don't they look fantastic? Both love to be petted and brushed, and enjoy hanging out with their human pals. They are spayed, micro-chipped, current on their vaccinations and negative for FIV and FeLV. Griffith and Camden are so ready to find their new happily ever after. Is it with you?

Easy Like Sunday Selfie - Camille

Even though we are just getting to know our new friend Camille, we can already see she is a real sweetheart. She's a little shy, but friendly and gentle. And as you can see from these snaps, she's also pretty good at taking selfies of the "Easy Like Sunday" variety. 😺

Camille is just about 8 months old. She's spayed, micro-chipped, current on her vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. She loves being pet and likes to play. And just look at that sweet face and pretty coat. What's not to love? Come meet Camille today!

(Almost) Wordless Sisters - Cleo and Nina

Found as strays, sweet and adorable sisters Cleo and Nina are still a little shy around humans. But they're quickly learning that the ones at PAWS are sources of love, food and play sessions (which they live for!).

Sisters stick together!

These cuties are gaining confidence every day, and we know they will positively blossom once they are in a forever home. Cleo are Nina are about 8 months old, and MUST be adopted together. They are spayed, micro-chipped, current on their vaccinations and negative for FIV and FeLV.  We hope they find their happily ever after real soon!

Sunday Selfies with Pukka

Meet our new and adorable new friend, Pukka. As you can see from her amazing selfies, this beautiful housepanther is pretty skilled at posing for the camera!


Pukka, who is about 5 1/2 years old, was found as a (super friendly) stray. We sure are glad she's safe and loved at the shelter now, instead of wandering around outside. You may be wondering about her unusually shaped ears, which got that way as the result of untreated infections. Thankfully, she's been taken care of at PAWS, and is all better now. Pukka is sweet as can be, gets along with other nice cats, and loves people. She's spayed, micro-chipped, current on her vaccinations and negative for FIV and FeLV. They say there's no place like home for the holidays. We have our paws and fingers crossed for Pukka to find hers real soon.

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Byrd

Our handsome pal Byrd is a young and energetic fellow. Sure, he'll hang out and chill with you when the mood strikes, but most of the time he just wants to play. And then play some more. Oh, and in case you're wondering ...  Byrd's not extremely picky about his toys, but does seem to have a fondness for mouse and laser toys. 😸


Byrd is about one year old, so he's still got a ton of kitten energy. He can get a little carried away, so he'd probably do best in a home without small children. He's neutered, micro-chipped, current on his vaccinations and negative for FIV and FeLV. If you're looking for an infusion of love and fun in your life, this is the mancat for you. Come meet Byrd at PAWS today!

Easy Like Sunday Selfie - Snickers

Our new friend Snickers isn't just another pretty face (and some beautiful furs). She also happens to have a super sweet and gentle personality that would make her a wonderful best friend for whoever is lucky enough to adopt her. How's this for a selfie?


And as you can see from this snap, Snickers is also pretty adept at doing the "Easy Like Sunday Morning" thing...

Two year-old Snickers is spayed, micro-chipped, current on her vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. She loves being pet, and spending time with her human friends at PAWS. She is really, really friendly, and ready to find her forever home. Won't you please give this wonderful kitty the chance she needs?

Happy Thanksgiving

 “Piglet noticed that even though he had a very small heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.” - A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
 
Thanksgiving Throwback (2013): Gracie, Angel Zoe and Angel Moosey helping Chef Julia Child

We have so much for which to be grateful. We are thankful for the special people who adopt shelter animals and/or take in homeless pets, for those who help animals in need, donate time and resources, serve as fosters, care for feral cats, and/or participate in trap-neuter-return programs.

Thanksgiving Throwback (2012): Angels Moosey and Sammy at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

We're thankful for wonderful and amazing friends both near and around the world. Thank you for sharing your animals and lives with us, for your love and support, and for sharing in our joys (and our sorrows when stories have less than happy endings).

Thanksgiving Throwback (2015): Angel Zoe, Angel Moosey and Gracie

There are, of course, so many other things in our lives for which we are grateful. But because we love animals so much, the things we listed above are high on our list.

Thanksgiving Throwback (2011): Angel Sammy, Angel Moosey and an elusive turkey

Thank you all. And for everyone who celebrates Thanksgiving ... we hope yours is happy.
 
Hugs and headbonks,
Tracey, Kevin (meowmeowmans) and Gracie

Oreo's Sunday Selfies (and one from a Famous Guest)

It's Sunday, and as is the case almost every week, we're taking part in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, hosted by our dear pals at the Cat On My Head. When we asked the PAWS cats who'd like to represent this week, up stepped spunky and beautiful Oreo


Oreo has the coolest markings. Her fancy tuxedo is one of a kind! 

Oreo is about 2 1/2 years old. She likes humans, and gets along with other nice cats. She's friendly and playful (she loves the mouse on a string toy and the laser), but she is also good at letting you know when she's had enough. Oreo is spayed, micro-chipped, current on her vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. Oreo is so ready to find her happily ever after. Is it with you? 

And now, for that guest selfie from a famous friend...

It's the stunning one herself, Cathy Keisha!


You're probably wondering how we ended up with a genuine selfie of CK. As it turns out, she, TW and Pop had a whole bunch of awesome stuff to donate to the PAWS cats ... scratchers, track balls, valerian toys, a water fountain, collars, toys, a catnip toy marinater, litter boxes, PTUs and more! So Tracey and I took a drive down the interstate for a visit and to pick up all the goodies. We had a great time, even if CK did hiss and throw a major asthma attack when she first saw us (sorry for surprising you like that, pal). In all seriousness, THANK YOU for your kind donations, which we know will be well-used and well-loved by the cats waiting at PAWS for their forever homes. You, TW and Pop rock!

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Van Zant

This is our handsome and gentle buddy, Van Zant. He's such a good (and good-natured) boy. And just look at that adorable face! 

Van Zant is only about 1 1/2 years old. He's super friendly and gets along with other nice cats. He's also curious and playful, and loves getting pets and snuggles. And with the colder months now upon us, what could be better than snuggles from a soft, warm kitty? Van Zant is neutered, micro-chipped, current on his vaccinations and negative for FIV and FeLV. He's waiting at PAWS to find his happily ever after. Come meet Van Zant today!
