Lapcat Rufus' Selfies / 1300 Posts

What does a lapcat look like? If you guessed that it would look like our handsome pal Rufus, you'd be 100% correct. He's more than just a snuggler, though. As you can see from these photos, he also happens to know his way around a selfie!

Rufus, who ended up at PAWS after being found as a stray, is about 9 months old. He is very friendly, and his default is definitely snuggling and being pet. He also enjoys catnip and likes to play when the mood strikes, adores people, and gets along well with other nice kitties. 😸 Rufus is neutered, microchipped, current on his vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. Come meet this awesome dude today!
 

Wowzers! This is post number 1,300 for Animal Shelter Volunteer Life!
  Mom Tracey started this little blog back in December 2008, and since then, we've befriended more than 5,500 kitties who have come through PAWS. We've shared about more than 1,100 of them at ASVL. We never dreamed we'd still be here more than one million visits and 46,100 comments later. It definitely never gets old, and it's such a joy and privilege to share about these amazing and adoptable cats. It wouldn't be possible without the love and support of our friends and followers. Thank you for sharing in our journey! We are so, so grateful for your friendship and encouragement, and for the strength and joy you give us. 💕

It's Sunday, which means we're hopping along in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, hosted by our pals at The Cat On My Head. Be sure to check it out to see who else is hopping along (or to join in on the fun)!

(Almost) Wordless Valentina

Check out our awesome and adoptable buddy Valentina! Isn't she the cutest?

 
10 month-old Valentina is friendly, curious, and super playful. She definitely loves being petted and getting attention from her human pals, but is not keen on other felines. While that means Valentina needs to be an only pet, she promises to be the bestest best friend to her new forever human. 😸 She's spayed, microchipped, current on her vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. Come meet Valentina at PAWS today, and fall in love!

(Almost) Wordless Bermuda

 How about a few shots of Bermuda to lift any sagging spirits, and help get you through the week? Okay, so we're not talking about those amazing islands in the North Atlantic. We ARE taking about our beautiful and adoptable housepanther friend of the same name, though. And we weren't kidding about Bermuda lifting your spirits (just look at that adorable face!).💖

1 1/2 year-old Bermuda came to PAWS after her owner moved to a place that does not allow pets. 😿 She is very friendly, loves attention, and will be a great best friend for whoever is lucky enough to adopt her. This gorgeous kitty is spayed, microchipped, current on her vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. She's waiting patiently to be discovered by her new forever family. We hope she doesn't have to wait long.

Sweet Bams' Selfie

Because she's new at the shelter, our pretty friend Bams is still a little bit shy with people she doesn't know. So, what a pleasant surprise it was when this sweet ladycat volunteered to take this week's selfie. She did a terrific job, didn't she?

 
There was compensation, of course, in the form of catnip.
 

 Bams made sure to show off her beautiful profile, too.

Bams is about 5 years old. She ended up at PAWS after the new human baby in her former home developed allergies. As mentioned, she is a little shy at first, but warms up quickly, and loves being pet. She is spayed, current on her vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. She gets along with other nice cats, but would also be happy as a one and only kitty, if that's how you roll. Come meet Bams today, and fall in love!

(Almost) Wordless Carmella

Isn't our adoptable friend Carmella beautiful? Just look at her stunning furs. Her big and bright eyes. And her amazing whiskers!

Carmella really likes people (she is even a lap cat, when the mood strikes!), but is not a fan of other animals. So as nice as it is at PAWS, living here has been kind of tough for her. She's happy as can be to have human visitors, though, and we know that she'll do well as an only pet in a quiet and patient home. Carmella is about 4 years old, spayed, microchipped, current on her vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. She is so ready to find her happily ever after. And so deserving. We hope it finds her soon.

New Guy Miles' Selfies

Our buddy Miles is very new at the shelter, but we can already tell you he's a super nice kitty. We can also say with all confidence that he knows his way around a selfie. Did he rock these, or what? 😻

Miles is about 8 years old. He is very friendly, likes people, and loves getting attention and being pet. Miles is neutered, current on his vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. He'd do best in a quiet home without other pets, and will be an amazing best friend for some lucky adopter. Is it you?

(Almost) Wordless Sisters Mina and Moon

Beautiful housepanther sisters Mina and Moon came to PAWS with several other cats from a hoarding situation. We sure are glad they're here, where they will be loved and cared for until they find their new happily ever afters.

Mina and Moon are about one year old. They're still a little shy, but are quickly learning that the humans here are sources of good stuff like food, attention, and fun (they love the laser toy)!

Mina and Moon are spayed, microchipped, current on their vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. They are really coming out of their shells,  and we know they will continue to blossom in a forever home. Oh, and they get along with other nice cats, too!

These ladycats are so ready to find their forever home. Could it be with you? Come meet Mina and Moon today!

Easy Like Sunday Selfies - Skyler

Don't you just love a big ol' snuggly mancat? We sure do, and our handsome and adoptable friend Skyler fits that description perfectly. Just look at him ... willing me to join him on the bench for some attention.

Check out Skyler's extra toesies!
 
A request that I, of course, obliged.

Lap cat Skyler

Skyler is a super gentle dude who ended up at PAWS after being found as a stray. He loves being petted and getting attention. And snuggling!

Skyler gets along well with other cats, but would also be fine as your one and only. He's neutered, microchipped, and current on his vaccinations.

Two year-old Skyler has tested positive for FIV, but it's important to remember this does not mean he can't live a long and happy life! According to Best Friends Animal Society, "FIV-positive cats can live normal lives, both in quality and duration. They just need to be monitored for infections and dental issues. But if they’re well cared for, they can be healthy, happy, wonderful pets." FIV cannot be passed to other cats through casual contact, or by sharing food, water, or a litter box. Nor can it be passed to people or other pet species. Skyler is awesome. All he needs now is a forever home. Come meet him today, and fall in love.

(Almost) Wordless Ika

"Is it time for me to find my forever home yet?" is what our beautiful and supremely sweet friend, Ika, seems to be asking in this photo. 💖

10 year old Ika ended up at PAWS after her owner passed away. She's doing okay at the shelter, but she's so ready to find her new happily ever after.

Ika loves hanging out with her human pals, and is a lapcat extraordinaire. For those who are wondering, her cloudy eye is from an infection many years ago, but it does not bother her now. Ika is spayed, current on her vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. 

As Ika is not a fan of other animals, she needs to be an only pet. But she promises to shower her forever person with love and to be the bestest BFF ever. Come meet Ika today, and fall in love!
