(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Boots

Everybody adores our handsome buddy Boots. And why wouldn't they? This sweet and gentle dude loves being pet and snuggled, and hanging out with his human pals (i.e. the PAWS volunteers and staff members). 😻


Boots is just 10 years old, so he's still got lots of life to live, and plenty of love to give to whoever is lucky enough to adopt him. Oh, and check out his front paw in the third photo ... you'll see he's got some extra toes, which makes him even cooler! Boots is neutered, micro-chipped, current on his vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. He's so ready to find his happily ever after. Is it with you?

Alice's Sunday Selfies

When we asked for a volunteer for this week's Sunday selfies, look who raised her pretty little paw. It's our sweet, adoptable and gorgeous friend, Alice! What a pro ... she gave us a straight on selfie, and left and right profile ones, too!


Alice is only about one year old. She gets along well with other nice kitties, and would be a great addition to almost any home. Alice is spayed, micro-chipped, current on her vaccinations and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV, and will be a purrfect best friend for whoever is lucky enough to adopt her. Come meet Alice, and fall in love!

Our 1000th Post!


Holy cat! Can you believe this is our 1000th post here at Animal Shelter Volunteer Life? We never dared to imagine when Tracey wrote our inaugural post that we'd be here all these years later, still helping raise awareness for the PAWS cats. And we almost certainly wouldn't be here without you! Thank you to all of our readers and friends all over the world, for being such sources of love, encouragement and joy. And for always rooting for us, and for the amazing and adoptable cats we're blessed to know through our time volunteering.

Here's to the next 1000 posts, and beyond!

Love, hugs and headbonks to all,

Kevin (meowmeowmans), Tracey, Gracie, Ava; our beloved angels Zoe, Moosey, Sammy, Maggie, Graphite, Lady Madonna, and Bitsy; and all the PAWS Cats past and present

Mia's Sunday Selfies :)

Our new buddy, Mia, is as sweet as she is pretty (and as you can see, she's plenty pretty). She also has a real knack for taking selfies. Take a look!


Mia is about 8 years old. She's super friendly, outgoing, loves people (and their laps), and would be a great addition to almost any home. Mia is spayed, micro-chipped, current on her vaccinations and negative for FIV and FeLV. She's waiting patiently at PAWS to meet her new best friend. Is it you?

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Patches


Our adoptable friend Patches is more than just a pretty face. She also happens to possess an incredibly loving disposition and a super sweet personality. Just two years old, this gorgeous calico came to PAWS when her human developed allergies (editor's note: as someone who is allergic to cats, I truly hope Patches' human tried everything possible before giving her up). Patches is a really good kitty, who loves people and gets along well with other nice cats. She is spayed, micro-chipped, current on her vaccinations and negative for FIV and FeLV. Now all she needs is a chance to find her real happily ever after. Is it with you?

Mrs. Fields' Sunday Selfies

A kitty named Mrs. Fields? Like the famous cookie brand? It's true. But we'll let you in on a little secret ... THIS Mrs. Fields is way sweeter than any cookie could ever be. She absolutely adores humans, and could hardly contain her excitement when we visited with her today. We made sure to give her lots of snuggles, pets and lap time. She absolutely loved it. And talk about photogenic. When we asked her to pose for some selfies, she totally nailed them. See for yourself!


Mrs. Fields is only about 1.2 years old, but she has already had kittens (and yes, they all have cookie names), who are all being cared for in foster until they are old enough to be adopted. Now that Mrs. Fields has been spayed, micro-chipped, vaccinated and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV, she's all set to enjoy being some lucky adopter's forever baby. Come meet her today, and fall in love!

She's spayed, micro-chipped, current on her vaccinations and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. Hazel is waiting patiently at PAWS to be discovered by her forever best friend. Come meet her today!

Mindy's Sunday Selfies

Our pretty tuxedo pal, Mindy, was pretty scared when she first arrived at PAWS. But something told us all that underneath the hissing and whapping exterior was a nice kitty. And guess what? Our suspicions were correct! With regular love and attention from the staff and volunteers, Mindy has started to realize that people aren't so bad after all. In fact, she loves to play and even likes being pet. And, as you can see, she also takes an awesome selfie. 😸

Mindy is about one year old. She gets along well with other nice cats, and would do best in a patient home where she is allowed to get used to things on her own schedule (we have no doubt that she will blossom as she feels safe and comfortable). Mindy is spayed, micro-chipped, current on her vaccinations and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. She's ready to find her happily ever after. All she needs now is a chance. Is it with you?

Our Housepanthers Gracie and Ava!

Check out what we won in a drawing held by our beloved pals at Cat Chat with Caren and Cody! It's a Mega Milk Carton from Cat in the Box! Cute, isn't it? Thank you, Caren and Cody! Here are a couple of snaps of Gracie and Ava giving it a try.
Ava went in briefly, but seems to prefer being next to the milk carton.
Gracie prefers her milk in a more horizontal orientation. 😺

Speaking of our housepanthers, some of you have asked how our senior ladycat Gracie and her young sister Ava are getting along these days. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and Tracey recently took this one.

Yes, Ava was watching a bird and squirrel video on her Kindle. Gracie appears to have joined her.

Gracie and Ava get along well, but usually do their own thing. This is the first time we've seen them cuddling together. πŸ’–

Happy Wednesday, everybuddy!

Sunday Selfies: Sherry and Sebastian

We love our super sweet sibling friends, Sherry and Sebastian! Actually, to be completely honest ... everybuddy loves these two kitties. 😸

And how could we not? Just look at those faces!

Sherry, who almost always has her tongue out πŸ˜‰
Handsome Sebastian, who can usually be found curled up on a volunteer's lapπŸ’–
Sherry. See what we mean about that tongue?
Sebastian, settling in for a snooze
Sherry and Sebastian ended up at at the shelter because their person had too many pets, and could not care for them all. These two adorable cats are about 10 1/2 years old, spayed/neutered, current on their vaccinations and negative for FIV and FeLV. They get along well with other nice cats, enjoy their human pals, and like to play (especially Sherry!). We'd love to see them adopted together. Sherry and Sebastian are waiting at PAWS to find their happily ever after. Maybe it's with you?
