Easy Like Sunday Selfie - Morticia

Adorable and friendly ladycat Morticia almost always greets us at the door when we visit. Today, though, she's chosen to say hi (and take her selfies) from her super comfortable bed. :)
Getting...
...sleepy...

Morticia gets along well with her roommates in PAWS Cat Room 4. She would do best in a quieter home without small children. She's spayed, micro-chipped, current on her vaccinations, and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. She's ready to bring a boatload of love and happiness into a forever home. Come meet Morticia today!

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Sunpuddle Snoozing :)

Here's hoping your Wednesday is as carefree as the one being enjoyed by silly sunpuddle surfers, Merritt and Theodore. :)
Merritt catches some rays up top, while Theodore gets comfortable on the bed.
 
Both of these wonderful kitties are waiting at PAWS for their forever homes. Come meet them today!

Easy Like Sunday Selfie - Greyrock!

This week's Sunday Selfie is brought to you by our handsome and friendly buddy, Greyrock. He was pretty timid when he first came to PAWS, always staying just beyond arm's reach. But what a difference a day some play makes. After a week of consistent play sessions from the staff and volunteers, Greyrock is a different cat!

He's now greeting humans who visit him and his roommates. He loves being pet. And he'll be an awesome best friend to whoever is lucky enough to adopt him. :)

Greyrock also knows how to rock the "Easy Like Sunday" meme.

Greyrock is about one year-old. He's neutered, micro-chipped, and current on his vaccinations. He has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. He's a super nice boy, who gets along well with other cats. Oh, and did we mention that he's ready to find his happily ever after? :)

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Dina

Pretty Dina was found as a stray, and brought to PAWS. This sweet, petite kitty is still a little timid, but she's starting to adjust to being in uber-catified Cat Room 5.


Dina is a smart girl, who's learning that the PAWS volunteers and staff are sources of love and kindness (and food ... and catnip). With such encouragement, she's showing her courage a little bit more each day, and just needs time and patience to allow her to blossom into the loving, trusting kitty we know she is. She gets along well with other nice cats, and would do best in a quieter home without small children. Dina will be a wonderful best friend, if you give her the chance.

Dina is about 2 years old, spayed, micro-chipped, and current on her vaccinations. She has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. Come meet her today!

Easy Like Sunday Selfie - Phoebe :)

Our sweet-as-pie and adoptable pal Phoebe sure takes a great selfie...

Her likes include catnip, good conversation, scritches and being pet.

Phoebe also has some top-notch Easy Like Sunday skills.

As if you needed any more reason to want to adopt Phoebe, this beautiful, 16 year-old ladycat also happens to qualify for the PAWS Pension Plan, which features no fee adoptions for cats 12 years and older, with the following included at no cost for the life of the cat: a yearly exam and senior blood workup analysis, and vaccinations as recommended by the PAWS vet.

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Jasper

Mesmerizing. That's the word that came to mind when we first met our handsome new friend, Jasper. Just look at those eyes. And that intense gaze. And his sleek and luxurious fur.


Jasper is new at PAWS, so he's still getting used to the sights, smells and sounds that come with living at the shelter. We can only imagine how scary it all is for a less confident cat like him.


Fortunately, through socialization that includes play (which he LOVES), pets, conversation and catnip, Jasper is learning that the people here are actually pretty nice. And that's a good thing, since that realization will help him to trust all humans, and make him more adoptable. :)


Jasper is about one year old, neutered, micro-chipped and current on his vaccinations. He has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. He can be a little rough, so he would do best in a patient, adults-only home without any other pets or children. Won't you give Jasper the chance he so deserves?

Update on Zoe: Thank you all for your continued purrs, prayers and good thoughts. Zoe's checkup on Saturday went well. Her bloodwork yielded good results, and the echocardiogram she had today showed no abnormalities in her heart. It's all good news, but we still don't (and may never) know what actually caused her incident. The upshot, though, is that Zoe is back to her normal, lovable, happy-go-lucky self. :)

Easy Like Selfie Sunday :)

When we asked for volunteers for this week's Sunday Selfie, we were delighted that our adoptable pal Seaside raised her paw. As you can see, she's a real cutie pie, and very good at taking selfies.
Seaside (whose brother Cove was featured here a few weeks ago) is about one year old. This sweet and petite ladycat is spayed, micro-chipped, current on her vaccinations and negative for FIV/FeLV. She can be a little shy with new people, but loves attention once she knows you. So come get to know her! :)

Of course, we can't let Sunday go by without a little "Easy Like Sunday" cat-napping. Two of Seaside's (also adoptable) roommates, Mindy and Rudy, have staked out their spots on the always-popular Ikea doll ROOM 5 CAT bed.


Good job, Mindy and Rudy!

Biddy
We adopted Biddy in September 2014 after she had spent two years with you at PAWS. Biddy is doing great and we are so happy to have her. She loves taking naps anywhere she can, drinking water from the sink, and Boar's Head turkey. Thank you PAWS for everything you did for Biddy!

This is Brian (tabby; top) and Buster (all grey). We adopted them from PAWS three years ago in June and they have been the most wonderful addition to our family! They are the biggest lovers and the funniest "fighters." Thank you PAWS for giving us the best cats in the world!

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Theodore :)

This is our friendly and super-adoptable friend Theodore. Isn't he Theo-dorable? ;)

This handsome dude was trapped with his brother Wally, who has since been adopted. Now it's time for Theodore to find HIS happily ever after.

Theodore is about 1 1/2 years old, neutered, micro-chipped and current on his vaccinations. He's negative for FIV and FeLV. Theodore currently lives in one of the open rooms at PAWS, so we know he gets along well with other kitties. If you're wondering how he feels about people (including children!), he likes them, too. He makes this clear by always greeting whoever is lucky enough to visit him and his roommates. Theo would love to meet and greet his way into your heart and home. Come meet him today! :)

Zoe update: Thank you again for your purrs, prayers and good thoughts. Zoe is doing well, and seems more like herself with each passing day. We have a follow up/next steps appointment with our regular vet on Saturday. Paws crossed!

Happy Zoe Update :)

Good news! Zoe is home! Much to our delight (and Zoe's, too), the vets at Cornell Veterinary Specialists pronounced our girl fit to come home today. Upon her arrival home, she enjoyed a little snack, and a nice cool drink from the fountain.

And now, she's resting comfortably in her crown princess bed:
 
Zoe's still a little wobbly, which they said is normal after an episode like this. We have to (try to) keep her from climbing things for the next week or so, and have her checked by our regular vets in 5-7 days, but she is home and happy. Sister Gracie is noticeably brighter now that Zoe is back. So are Tracey and I. :)

Not sure what caused all of this, but we will consult with our vets to see what we can/should do moving forward.

Thank you, everyone, for your concern and care. We love and appreciate you all, and will keep you posted.

Hugs and headbonks,

Kevin, Tracey, Gracie and Zoe
