Easy Like SUNday

Here's beautiful and adoptable Noname (pronounced "No-nah-may"), daydreaming of sunpuddles and a forever home.

Noname loves humans, and gets along well with the other kitties in her room.

Noname is about 10 months old, spayed, micro-chipped, and up-to-date on all of her vaccinations. She has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  And just like all the other PAWS cats and dogs, her adoption fee is just $25 through the end of December. Come meet Noname today!

Easy Like Sunday - Buddy

Even though our handsome and adoptable pal Buddy's "relaxamicating" skills were documented in a post last month, we thought you'd enjoy another demonstration by the master himself.  :)

Happy Sunday, everybody!

The Santa Kitty Toy Hop: Here Comes Santa Claws

It's the most wonderful time of the year ... for bringing a little extra joy to shelter kitties.  That's why we're participating in the Santa Kitty Toy Hop organized by Summer and her human at Sparkle The Designer Cat. Cat bloggers around the world are taking this opportunity to donate to their local shelters, and sharing about their experiences doing so.

We elves put together a package of toys, catnip, games, scratchers, tunnels, snacks and food for the cats at Pet Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), the shelter at which we volunteer every weekend.  We had a great time delivering the goodies yesterday.  Here are some pictures of the fun...

Sweet Holly waiting patiently to open her gift
Noname: What's in the bag?
Pumpkin with her new mousey toy
The Room 5 Gang, checking out the goodies
Exploring the new crinkle tunnel
Room 7 Cats: "Holy Cat! Is all this for us?"
Playing the Cat Amazing game (looking for snacks)!
"Toys, tunnels, scratchers, snacks, catnip ... we must have been GOOD this year!"
Oh what fun it was to watch the shelter kitties enjoying their new stuff.  Maybe, just maybe, we made life a little brighter for the PAWS cats while they're waiting for their forever homes.  Happy holidays, everyone! :)

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Lucky

This is our gorgeous, floofy and adoptable housepanther friend Lucky.  She's gentle and affectionate, and really enjoys hanging out with her human volunteer buddies. We all love spending time with her, too.

Lucky is about 8 years old. She is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on all her vaccinations.  She has also tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  Potential adopters should be aware that Lucky was front paw declawed by whoever owned her previously. (We - and PAWS - are strongly against the barbaric procedure of declawing.)  We don't know why someone would declaw a cat.  But we DO know that Lucky is a very sweet girl who would make someone a great best friend. Come meet her today!

Easy Like Sunday-Selfie-Special

Around here, we try to get in at least a little bit of Easy on Sunday. You know ... in preparation for the long week ahead.  Here's our beautiful, adoptable friend Sarah, showing everybody how it's done... 

Here's wishing you a Sunday as easy as Sarah's.

We also hope you take some time today to have some fun. Our handsome buddy Wizard is doing just that by participating in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, sponsored by our dear friends at The Cat On My Head.
Wizard's selfie!
In case you're wondering, Wizard DOES have one blue eye, and one green eye, and both are magnificent! Oh, and yes ... this sweet and playful guy is available for adoption, too.

Throughout December, the adoption fee for Sarah, Wizard, or any of the other adoptable PAWS cats (and dogs, too) is just $25.*  By adopting one of these amazing animals, you’re helping to save the life of an adorable and devoted pet who simply needs a second chance. Joy to your world (and theirs)! :)

 (*This special promotion is made possible by the Best Friends Partner Network, of which PAWS is a part.)

(Almost) Wordless - Roommates (and Moosey update)

Roommates Patch, Calliope and Cinnamon all live in the PAWS Records Room.  They're available for adoption, and waiting to meet you!


QUICK UPDATE ON MOOSEY: Thank you so much for the continued purrs, prayers and love you're sending Moosey's way.  The insulin injections do seem to be helping, even though the prescribed dose is very small until he gets his next blood glucose level test on Saturday. For now, he's more active and alert, and eating well.  We are so grateful for your friendship, and your care and concern for our little buddy. Please keep all that good stuff coming.  Hugs and headbonks to you all! :)
