Sweet and Funny Elmer

Our pal Elmer never fails to put a smile on our faces.  Although he's not a lap cat, he loves playing and hanging out with the volunteers and staff at the shelter.

Elmer is available for adoption at PAWS.  He's about two years old, neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all his vaccinations.  He has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  Come meet Elmer today. Come on ... don't you need a little sunshine in your life? :)

Love and thanks to our wonderful friends Ann, Maggy and Zoey at Zoolatry
for Easter-izing our blog header.  Isn't it pawsome? :)

A Super Special Sunday

Today is an extra special day around here. First and foremost, it's Mom Tracey's birthday! We sure do love her, and we hope you'll all join us (Sammy, Moosey and Dad Kevin) in wishing her the best day and year ever. :)

Today also marks the first ever PAWS Senior Cat Sunday event, from 12 noon to 4 pm. If you live around Norwalk, CT, be sure to visit PAWS to meet all of their adoptable senior cats (aged seven+). You might just find your new best friend! :)

Three on Thursday - Snoozus Interruptus

Sweet Yankee (who is available for adoption together with his sister Doodle) WAS enjoying a nice, quiet snooze.  Darn that pawparazzi! :)

Reminder: Please remember to spread the news ... this Sunday (03/25) is "Senior Cat Sunday" at PAWS! The special adoption event, which runs from NOON to 4:00 pm, will serve to showcase the many wonderful older (7+ years old) PAWS cats looking for loving forever homes.

PAWS "Senior Cat Sunday" Event


Hi! It's me, Sammy, and I'm here to tell you about a great event being held at PAWS this Sunday, March 25th. That's when the shelter will be hosting "Senior Cat Sunday," from NOON to 4:00 pm to showcase the many wonderful older adult cats looking for loving forever homes. Would you all please help me spread the word by sharing this post?

Sure, kittens are cute and all, but older cats like me (I was already an older cat when my mom and dad gotcha'd me) offer benefits kittens can't compete with. Us mature cats have personalities that are more fully developed, so you can select a cat that fits in with your lifestyle. And mature cats are mellower and often enjoy cuddling and lap time more than kittens. I know I do! :)

On to the particulars about Senior Cat Sunday. This Sunday, anyone who adopts a PAWS cat who is 7-years old or older will receive a reduced adoption fee of $75, a cat bed AND a "Kitty Swag Bag" filled with supplies to help your new best friend feel at home. And your new kitteh will already be spayed or neutered, current on his/her vaccines, microchipped and tested for FIV and FeLV!

I sure hope you'll visit PAWS on Sunday to meet all the pawsome, happy 7+ year old cats currently looking for new homes. They may no longer be kittens, but since indoor cats can live up to 20 years or more, they still have lots of love to give. Oh, and there are also several bonded pairs of mature cats (like Derek and Andy and Krystal and Loreen) there who are looking for a home together. If you adopt a pair of mature kittehs, you'll receive an even BIGGER reduction on the adoption fee!

Thanks for reading! :)

Hugs and headbonks,

Happy St. Patrick's Day! :)

Sammy and Moosey

May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks
May your heart be as light as a song
May each day bring you bright, happy hours
That stay with you all the year long.
- Irish blessing

Happy St. CATrick's Day, everybody! :)

Hugs and headbonks,

Sammy, Moosey, Mom Tracey, Dad Kevin, and the cats at PAWS

Late-breaking news flash: We've been informed that Moosey and Sammy have been voted the 3rd place winners in the St. Patrick's Day Photo Contest in Memory of Nimbus.  You can check out all the winning entries here, and ALL of the amazing entries here.  Thank you to our pals at Brian's Home for their constant work to help animals everywhere, and for sponsoring such a fun contest. :)

Too Sweet Tuesday - Ian

We love Ian! This handsome mancat is super-friendly, and loves playing and getting attention from his favorite staff and volunteer pals. And as you can see from these pictures, sometimes he enjoys curling up in a nice warm lap.

Ian is about 9 years old, neutered, microchipped, current on all his vaccinations and has tested negative for FeLV.  Ian *does* have the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), which despite its scary name, is NOT a death sentence.  In fact, many FIV-positive cats like Ian live long, healthy and happy lives.  Ian should be an indoor only cat.  He does not care for dogs or small children, but gets along with some cats.  Won't you come meet this special guy today? :)

Easy Like Sunday - Bunny

As you can see, sweet Bunny is taking it easy and catching some rays today. She and her (equally sweet) sister Hunny are available for adoption at PAWS. Come meet them today! :)

Sandy is Sweet, Sunny and Sensitive

Handsome Sandy is a sweet and sensitive soul.  He can be somewhat shy around new people, but give him a little time and you've got a friend for life.  All he needs now is a nice, quiet place to call home (and some loving people to call his very own).  Sandy likes to play, and gets along well with the other cats in his room.  He's neutered and up-to-date on all his vaccinations, and has tested negative for FeLV and FIV.

Mancat Monday - Cecil

Cecil is one of the sweetest, snuggliest mancats we know. He loves people and gets along well with other cats, too. He also plays like he's a kitten!

Cecil is about 7 years old, and was found as a stray, even though he is declawed. He was INCREDIBLY lucky to survive out in the wild without his claws.

We're so glad he found his way to PAWS, where he can live safely until he finds his forever home. Cecil is neutered, up to date on all his shots, and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.

Dr. Seuss Day Challenge ... FURever Home Edition

Today is the Dr. Seuss Day Challenge, and our pal Anabelle has the very best kind of Seuss-ian rhyme to share.  So, without further ado ... take it away, Anabelle!

Luisa and Jupiter were also adopted since our last update!  ConCATulations to this trio of new PAWS graduates!  We'll miss you all, sweet kits, but we are so happy for you and your new forever families. :)
