Easy Like Selfie Sunday - Figaro

Like his namesake from the 1940 Disney movie, "Pinocchio," our adoptable pal Figaro is black and white and cute all over. This sweet and gentle mancat loves people, and gets along with the other cats in the open room in which he lives. Here he is, practicing his best selfie pose...

And here he is, practicing his "serious and mysterious" look...

Figaro: "Taking selfies is kind of tiring. Maybe we can all settle in for a nice Sunday Easy?"

Great idea, Figaro. Sweet dreams, handsome boy.
Figaro is about four years old, neutered, micro-chipped, and up to date on his vaccinations. He is negative for FIV and FeLV. Come meet this amazing boy today, and fall in love.

We're taking part in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, sponsored by our pals at The Cat on My Head. Click HERE to see who else is participating (and/or to join in the fun)!

(Almost) Wordless Erica / Cats Rule!

When pretty Erica first came to PAWS, she was timid and nervous. This was completely understandable, since this sweet girl lived in an apartment building basement -- for a whole year -- after being abandoned by her former humans.
Fortunately, Erica is a smart, observant and forgiving kitty, who's quickly discovered that the volunteers and staff at the shelter are kind and patient, and a source of pets, food and warm laps.
This petite ladycat is no longer shy ... what a joy to see her run to the door to greet us when we visit her room. :)
Erica is about 5 years old. She's spayed, micro-chipped, and current on her vaccinations, and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  Now that her faith in humanity has been restored, she's ready for her very own forever home. Is that home yours?

Did you know today is Cat World Domination Day? The brainchild of our dearly departed friend, Sparkle the Designer Cat, this special day is a recognition of something many of us already know ... that cats rule! (It also happens to be Sparkle's birthday.) Summer Samba (who now handles the blogging duties at Sparkle's blog) and her housemates Binga and Boodie are having a big Cat World Domination Day bash today. Be sure to stop by if you can!

Happy Father's Day!

Hi everyone! It's Mom Tracey, hijacking today's blog post to wish Dad Kevin (aka meowmeowmans) a very Happy Father's Day!

A Father's Day selfie with meowmeowmans, Moosey and the Girls! :)

Moosey, Gracie, Zoe and I appreciate you for all you do for us and for all the kitties at the shelter who are awaiting their forever homes. You are forever loved and appreciated. Here's to all dads of children and creatures big and small everywhere. Thank you for all you do!


Mom Tracey, Moosey and "The Girls"


Today, we're participating in the special Father's Day Edition of the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, hosted by our awesome friends at The Cat on My Head blog. Click HERE to see who else is joining in on the fun! :)

International Box Day 2015!

Have you ever noticed how cats, dogs and other animals seem to love boxes?  The phenomenon has long been noted by pet bloggers all over the world, who are coming together today to commemorate International Box Day.  To join in on the fun, we dug out our beloved Angel Sammy's combination box-bed for Moosey, Gracie and Zoe. Here's a flashback (from 2011) of Sammy demonstrating his complete mastery of the head-in-the-corner-of-the-box sleeping technique:
Flash-forward to the present day. Here's sweet Moosey, enjoying some box time. He could definitely smell his angel brother, and he settled right in for some Sammy-style relaxation. :)

Gracie and Zoe never knew Sammy, so they weren't as comfortable about actually laying in the box. They DID sniff and explore it, though. :)

Happy International Box Day, Everybuddy! :)

Easy Like Selfie Sunday - Spotty

Happy Sunday, everybuddy! Those of you who read our blog fairly regularly know that we're fans of both the "Sunday Selfie Blog Hop" (hosted weekly by our pals at The Cat on My Head), and the "Easy Like Sunday" meme. As we've done previously, we're participating in both today. Handling the all-around honors is our handsome, friendly and lap-loving pal, Spotty. Here's Spotty's selfie:

And his selfie/easy combo: 

And finally, settling in for a good ol' fashioned catnap-on-a-lap kind of easy: 

Spotty is about 5 years old, and sweet as they come. As you can see from the pictures, one of his favorite things is warming up his human volunteer pals' laps! He also gets along pretty well with other kitties, in case you were wondering. :) Spotty is neutered, micro-chipped and up to date on his vaccinations. He has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. Come meet Spotty at PAWS today ... he'd love to be your new best forever friend!

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Swizzle :)

Just look at that face.  We certainly can't resist our adoptable friend, Swizzle!  And Tracey and I always make it a point to spend some "quality" time with her each time we volunteer. 

Swizzle is sweet and gentle, and (as you can see in these pictures) beautiful from every angle.

Swizzle has been waiting for a very long time for someone to give her the chance she needs at a forever home. 

We, and the other volunteers, promise to keep on loving her until she finds one. 

Swizzle is spayed, micro-chipped and current on her vaccinations.  She's about 8 1/2 years old, and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  She tolerates other cats, but does not do well with dogs. Swizzle would do best in a quieter home.  Come and meet her at PAWS today!

Happy Gotcha Day, Moosey! :)

Today is a very special day at our house! It's Moosey's seventh gotcha day!

Thank you, little buddy, for filling our hearts and home with love and happiness every single day!  And for making us smile no matter what it is you happen to be doing...

Catching some sunbeams
Window whiffing
Enjoying your favorite catnip pillow
Playing with some string

We love you, sweet boy, and are so very thankful for you, and for each and every day we have with you.


Mom, Dad, Gracie and Zoe


Moosey Health Update: Thank you to everyone who's been keeping Moosey in their thoughts, purrs and prayers.  He continues to do well (even though he's a little slower these days).  He's such a good boy about his twice-daily meds and insulin shots (Mom and Dad are very thankful for this).  After a recent checkup, Moosey's vet (Dr. L.) said,  "his numbers and bloodwork are good (even if he didn't have the medical issues he has)." :)

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Olga

Beautiful Olga is a super sweet girl. She enjoys being pet, lounging in sunpuddles, and watching "Bird TV" through the window of her room.

Olga loves other cats, and has learned from her volunteer pals that humans are nice, too. 

She would make a purrfect addition to a quieter home. Maybe yours? :)

Olga is about 2 years old. She's spayed, micro-chipped, and current on her vaccinations. She is negative for FIV and FeLV.  Come meet her, and fall in love!
