Smokey's Selfies

We're always excited when one of the newest PAWS cats volunteers its paw to take part in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. That's exactly what happened this week, when our sweet and handsome new friend, Smokey, raised his paw. He did great, don't you think?


Smokey is about 15 years old, and sadly, wound up at the shelter after his human passed away. He was pretty out of sorts at first (who can blame him?), and is still getting used to being here. But we spent some special and amazing time with him this weekend. Smokey has the loudest, rumbliest purr ever, and loves being pet once he trusts you. And oh yeah ... lap cat alert! He fell asleep on my lap, happy as can be. I'm fairly certain he would have preferred I stay there permanently (or at least until HE felt like getting up). Smokey is neutered, current on his vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. He so deserves to find a new forever home. Could it be yours?
 
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)!

Smokey is so handsome! I purr he finds a home to spend his senior years.

Sasha said...

What a handsome kitty. I can't believe he is 15 years old. A senior cat needs a calm and settled environment, so I hope some loving humans soon give him a furrever home.

I feel especially bad for cats whose owner passes and no family takes them in. I hope this handsome boy gets a forever home soon. XO

Poor Smokey. It is sad that he is having to live the rest of his life without his human, but maybe that same human can send him a new family that will love and worship him. Purrs.
