Easy Like Sunday - Sweet Dottie

Brought to PAWS as a stray, adorable and petite Dottie is an absolute sweetheart.

You'd never guess this beauty is about 12 years old, especially since she plays with the reckless
abandon of a kitten (toy mice are her favorites)!

Dottie loves to be pet, and as you can see from these pictures, she also knows how to take it easy. :)

Ciao Bella! You've found your forever home! :)

Bella, when Kevin and I were given the wonderful news last week that you had been adopted, we were filled with that bittersweet feeling we get whenever a special kitty who has captured our hearts is adopted. Even though we're incredibly happy that you've found your "forever home," we are sad that we'll now have to rely solely on our memories to experience the joy only YOU could give us. We will miss you, our kooky, curious, and playful Bella. Enjoy the newly found happiness that comes in a home you can call your very own. We love you!

Patch is Looking for Love

Our pal Patch came to PAWS when his human mom passed away. The woman’s widower said, “…he didn’t want Patch and his mother around ‘because they were a reminder of his late wife.’” We can’t understand this AT ALL! And as if that wasn’t bad enough, whoever put Patch into the carrier to be brought to PAWS did so with such force that his back claws were torn. It’s no wonder that Patch was terrified of people when we first met him. He would cower in the back corner of his cage, hiding his face and avoiding interaction. It was absolutely heartbreaking.

But some of us saw a glimmer of hope in Patch. At first, we’d only get a few gentle pets in before Patch would try to whack us with his paw. But he seemed more scared than angry, so we kept on trying, hoping that we could gain even a little of this handsome boy’s trust. And lo and behold, with patient persistence, Patch has made incredible strides!

Patch now lives in one of the “open” cat rooms at PAWS. While he’s still on the shy side, he loves to be petted on his head, and adores being brushed on his head and neck (he even lifts his head so his neck can be brushed underneath)! Patch would do well in a quiet, less active home where he’ll receive lots of love and attention. He must be an indoor-only cat, and should not be with dogs or young children. Patch is about three years old. He is neutered, current on all his vaccinations and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. Won’t you give this sweet boy the loving home he so desperately desires?

Happy Cinco de Mayo - Concha and Julio

Happy Cinco De Mayo! The cats at PAWS have been known to throw some pretty crazy parties, so sweet Concha (she's on the left) and her son Julio are getting in a little pre-fiesta siesta. :)

If you're looking for a snuggly cat who will keep your lap warm, this may be your lucky day ... Concha and Julio are *both* lapcats. As you can see from the pictures above, they are extremely bonded, so we'd very much prefer they be adopted together. They are spayed/neutered, up to date on all their vaccinations, and have tested negative for FIV and FeLV. Come adopt them today! :)
