Easy Like Sunday - Conrad

Now that Conrad has gotten used to the sights and sounds of the shelter, he LOVES hanging out with his human volunteer pals. Today, after he sat on my lap for a while, this sweet and handsome boy helped Tracey read the newspaper. :)

To see more pictures of our pal Conrad, check out our fellow PAWS volunteer's blog, Sundays at the Shelter.

Fun Girl Friday :)

Swizzle is pretty new at PAWS. So far, we've learned that she's a sweet and gentle cat who LOVES to play with the track ball toy. We'll share more about Swizzle as we get to know her. :)

Mancat Monday - Sailor

Handsome Sailor ended up at PAWS after (human) family members with a new baby moved into the house. Not exactly a fan of large and loud groups of people, our poor buddy found himself the odd man(cat) out. :(

As he's gotten more and more comfortable with being at the shelter, we've seen Sailor's true personality emerge. And what a joy it has been! This kitty loves people, loves to play and loves to snuggle. He's also a talker (in a good way).

Five-year old Sailor is an indoor-only cat, who would do best in a quieter home with no children or other pets. He's up to date on all his vaccinations, and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Copy Cat Claire

Sweet Claire was recently moved into PAWS Records Room.
She quickly decided that she is "Queen of the Copy Machine."

We're guessing her affinity for the copy machine has
something to do with it being warm and toasty! :)

Visit our fellow volunteer's blog, Sundays at the Shelter, to learn more about Claire (and her roommates, Ginger and Cinnamon) :)

GREAT News! :)

Sancha -- the sweet and beautiful cat we wrote about just yesterday -- has found a forever home of her very own! Congratulations to Sancha and her new family ... we know they'll enjoy life together! Big thanks to all of our friends who purred and prayed for Sancha, and those who helped spread the news about her. We know all that positive energy helped get our buddy adopted. :)
And just in case you want even MORE good news ... the following kitties -- some of whom have appeared before on the blog -- are joining Sancha in the "now-living-in-a-real-home" celebration:

Gadget (to foster): Gadget, our talkative buddy who won the "Best Fantasy Costume" category in Hansel's 2010 Halloween Spooktacular, is doing extremely well in his foster home. His foster mom says he has made himself quite comfortable in just the short time he's been there!

Orion and Carina: Orion -- who has tested positive for FIV, but is symptom free, and his sisfur Carina (who is FIV negative) really love each other, and have been adopted together. :)



As always, thanks for reading. Have a great weekend, everybody! :)

Sweet Sancha Looking for Love

Big and beautiful Sancha is in search of a forever home of her very own. Sadly, this is Sancha’s second time at PAWS (now 6 years old, she was first adopted at the tender age of 8 weeks), and being back has been a difficult adjustment for her. At first, she was so depressed that she refused to come out of her cage – even when we left it wide open. She would also hiss and growl at the other cats in the room if they happened to walk by her cage during their “out” time. But with consistent love from the PAWS volunteers and staff, Sancha’s true personality is beginning to re-emerge. Even though she’s still not fond of her feline roomies, she loves hanging out with her human friends (who give her lots of pets and attention) , and looks forward to being out of her cage to stretch her legs and SPRAWL on the floor. Sometimes, she even lies on her back and shows her floofy belly! :)
Sancha is an indoor-only cat, and would do best in a quieter home with no other pets. She is spayed, up to date on all her vaccinations, and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. Won’t you consider opening your heart and home to this sweet lady cat?
