(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Piper

Our friend Piper sure is gorgeous, isn't she?

Piper isn't entirely used to being at the shelter yet, so she can initially come across as shy. But sit down, and this snuggly ball of friendliness will be in your lap, pronto.

And that "tortitude" thing that tortoiseshell cats are supposed to have in abundance? Piper must have been absent from school that day, because she's all sweetness, and no attitude. :)

Piper is tolerant of other cats, and would do well in a quieter home. She's about 6 years old, spayed, micro-chipped, and current on her vaccinations. She has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. Piper is ready to find her forever home. Is it yours?

Here's hoping your Sunday is as relaxing as the one Bella is enjoying.

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Sanford

Our new friend Sanford is super handsome, and super playful!

He likes people, and enjoys being pet. But playtime is priority number one for this mancat. :)

Sanford: Huh? Did somebuddy say "playtime?!"

Sanford is about 1 1/2 years old. He'd do well in an active home, with humans who will play with him, and some windows from which he can watch some "Bird TV." Sanford is neutered, micro-chipped, and current on his vaccinations. He has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. Come meet this playful dude today! :)

Happy Father's Day! :)

Mom Tracey here, with a very special shout out to meowmeowmans, for being the bestest "fur baby" daddy anyone could ever have!

I thank you for the love you give "the goils" every single day - whether it's keeping Gracie from eating Zoe's wet or getting Gracie to burn off the calories she ate when you briefly got distracted from standing guard...LOL! I see that the love you have for them is undeniable.

Thank you also for the love and compassion you give all the kitties at PAWS - acting as their temporary human dad until they exit those doors and enter the doors of their forever homes.

Happy Father's Day, Dad Kevin! You are loved!

Mom Tracey, Zoe, Gracie and all past and present PAWS kitties...:)
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! :)

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Behrr and Morris

These are our new pals, Behrr and Morris. In a sad twist of fate, these 2 year-old brothers ended up at the shelter when their owner was evicted, and could no longer keep them. They are very bonded, and must be adopted together.

Grey and white Behrr is friendly, but a little cautious until he gets to know you. This strikingly handsome guy loves being pet by the volunteers and staff he knows, watching Bird TV, and playing.

Suave and debonair tabby cat Morris is a little more outgoing than his brother, and incredibly friendly. Like Behrr, he loves to play (and chase flies!).

Morris and Behrr are neutered, micro-chipped and current on their vaccinations, and have tested negative for FIV and FeLV. It's clear to all of us that these guys are wonderful kitties, and we know they'll blossom even more in a forever home. They'll make a great instant family for whoever is fortunate enough to adopt them. :)

Easy Like Selfie Sunday - Mischief

This is our gentle friend, Mischief. We all fell in love with her the first time she gazed at us with those big, round eyes. And having gotten to know her, we can tell you that she has a sweet and beautiful personality to match.
Mischief's Sunday Selfie
Mischief's "Easy Like Sunday Morning" Selfie

Mischief loves everyone she meets, and adores snuggles, head scritches and just hanging out. Sadly, this gorgeous 16 year-old kitty ended up at PAWS because her former human felt she could no longer care for her. Mischief is spayed, micro-chipped and current on her vaccinations. She's negative for FIV and FeLV. She'll certainly be well-loved at the shelter, but so deserves to live out her golden years in a forever home. So, what do you say? Do you need a little Mischief in your life? :)

Of course, no FURever Home Friday is complete without a Happy Tail Tale. And do we ever have a wonderful one for you today!

I wanted to let you know how much I love Miss Zoe and what a wonderful addition she is to my home. I adopted her a few weeks after losing my beloved Jasmine very suddenly, leaving her best buddy Roxy alone. I wasn't sure if adopting a new kitty so soon would be a great idea, but when I saw Zoe on the PAWS website, I had to meet her. I walked into one of the kitty rooms, filled with kitties looking for forever homes, and there she was ... sitting on a cage and staring at the wall. It broke my heart. As soon as Zoe was in my arms, she was content and didn't seem like she wanted to leave. That was it for me ... I was adopting this sweet girl.

Since that time, she and Roxy have bonded. Roxy has always been an alpha cat, so finding a kitty like Zoe was a perfect match. She's simply happy to have a lap to sleep on, food in her bowl, and lots of hugs and snuggles. We all couldn't be happier. I know that Zoe was put up for adoption due to her former owner's illness, which was another reason for me taking her in. I felt like I owed it to the person who had to give up this wonderful girl. I cant imagine being ill and having to give away my fur babies, so heartbreaking. While I don't know the whereabouts of her former owner, I wish she could know that her baby is very loved and happy. I've enclosed a few photos of Zoe (and Roxy).

Happy weekend, everybuddy!

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Tina

Hi, everybuddy! This our new friend, Tina. As you can see, she's a real cutie pie! Found wandering the streets as a stray, Tina is a confident, friendly ladycat who loves the company of her human volunteer pals (and other kitties, too). :) 

Tina is about 2 years old, and would make a great addition to almost any home. She's spayed, micro-chipped, and current on her vaccinations. She has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. Won't you please consider opening your heart and home to this sweet and loving girl?

Easy Like Selfie Sunday - Clover :)

Our pal Clover has a really unique face. It makes for a great selfie*, doesn't it? It also happens to be why - after two years - we immediately recognized this handsome guy when he (through no fault of his own) recently ended up back at PAWS. The last time he was here, his name was Jeter. We remember vividly that his happy-go-lucky personality and penchant for a good old-fashioned belly rub made him a real fan favorite.

It turns out this wonderful boy is still just as sweet as ever.

And that he still loves getting his tummy rubbed. :)

Clover is about 5 years old, neutered, micro-chipped and current on his vaccinations. He's tested negative for FIV and FeLV. He loves pretty much everyone he meets, and will be your instant best buddy, forever and ever. To know Clover is to adore him ... come see for yourself!

We're taking part today in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, hosted by our beloved friends at The Cat on My Head. Be sure to stop by to see who's hopping this week, and/or to join in on the fun!

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Emily and June

Happy Wednesday, from beautiful and adoptable roommates Emily and June! Here's gorgeous grey Emily, posing purrfectly for the camera.

And here's totally terrific torbie (tabby and tortie mix) and white June, nestled in nicely...

...on the roof of the well-loved pagoda cat tree in the PAWS showcase room. As you can see, Emily claimed one of the lower levels after having her picture taken.

Emily is about 5 years old, spayed, micro-chipped, current on her vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. She likes other cats, and would do best in a quieter home without children or dogs. Emily is a sweet girl, and with patience and love from the volunteers and staff, has grown in confidence. We know she'll continue to blossom in a loving forever home.

June is about 1 1/2 years old, and was found abandoned near PAWS. She, too, has figured out that the humans at the shelter are sources of love and kindness, and is learning to trust again. This gentle kitty would be fine in a home with older children and/or cats. June is spayed, micro-chipped, current on her vaccinations and negative for FIV and FeLV.

June and Emily have grown so much, and come so far at the shelter. Now they just need somebody to love them forever. Is that someone you?
