Tuxie Tuesday: Opt to Adopt

This is our friend Liam. Isn't he gorgeous?  Truth be told, he reminds us a lot of our dear, sweet Angel Sammy. :)


When Liam was found as a stray, his tail was so badly dislocated that it had to be amputated.  He's all healed up now, and doing just fine sans tail.  What's most remarkable about Liam is his sweet and gentle nature ... we're all but certain that he had his own humans at one time.  He loves being pet, gets along well with other kitties, and would love a home where snuggles and couch time reign supreme.  Liam is about 8 years old, neutered, micro-chipped and current on all of his vaccines.  He has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  Liam is waiting at PAWS, in Norwalk, CT, to meet his new best friend.  Is that you?

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Sherwood

Our pal Sherwood would LOVE to meet you.  We're pretty sure about this, because this handsome and sweet mancat loves EVERYONE he meets.


Sadly, Sherwood finds himself back at the shelter after being adopted a couple of years ago, because "...someone with allergies moved into his house."  We don't think that's fair, but the volunteers and staff at PAWS will be sure to give Sherwood lots of love and attention while he waits for his REAL forever home.


Gentle Sherwood also enjoys being pet, helping his volunteer pals read the newspaper, and playing. And he has the cutest high-pitched meow ever. 


He's about 2 1/2 years old, micro-chipped, neutered and up-to-date on all of his vaccinations. He has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  Come meet Sherwood today.  You'll be glad you did (and so will he)! :)

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Orphan Annie

This is our friend Orphan Annie. She's quite literally the sweetest, gentlest, snuggliest tortie cat we've ever met.


Are you looking for a true lap cat?  Do you like headbonks, enthusiastic purring, and kneading paws? Do you want someone to make you smile, and keep you warm as we head into Autumn?  If you answered "yes," to any of these, Orphan Annie is the girl for you. :)

Orphan Annie is about 13 years old, spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all her vaccinations.  She's blind in her left eye, but it's not something that bothers her.  She would do best in a quieter home, with somebody who is around a lot to give and get the snuggles she adores so much.  To meet her is to fall in love ... come see for yourself!

Friends Sponsoring Friends :)

Do you remember back in July, when our dearly departed friend Sparkle sponsored current PAWS cats Oreo, Patch and Sweet Pea?  And do you also remember how that helped inspire our friends at The Cat on My Head to sponsor sweet Swizzle (who they also made an honorary Kitty Blue)?

Well, guess what?  Two more of our blogging friends have chosen to sponsor PAWS cats!

First, our pal Spitty the Kitty (and his human Mary) decided to sponsor our handsome and gentle tiger tabby buddy Buster.  Until he is adopted, lucky Buster is officially Spitty's "Foster Bro-Cat." How cool is that?

Thank you, Spitty and Mary!

And THEN, just this past week, our friend Truffles from Melissa's Mochas, Mysteries and Meows held a commentathon to celebrate her mom Melissa's birthday, raising enough to sponsor two PAWS cats.  Truffles and Melissa are sponsoring the irrepressible Truffle:

Thank you, Truffles and Mom Melissa!

And sweet, silly lapcat Cinnamon:

Yes, thank you, Mom Melissa and Truffles!

Of course, our ultimate wish is for these awesome, adoptable cats to find new forever homes soon.  But until they do, isn't it nice that they all have special kitties and humans thinking especially about them?

Have a great weekend, everybody. :)

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Imah

Found as a stray, our adorable little pal Imah is friendly, outgoing, sweet and snuggly.


This tabby calico loves to play with reckless abandon, but also enjoys cuddling up on the couch with her human volunteer buddies.


Imah is about one year old, gets along with some other cats, and seems fine with children. 


She would be a wonderful addition to any household. :) 


Imah is spayed, micro-chipped, and up to date on all of her vaccinations.  She has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  Come meet this cutie pie today!

Silly and Easy Like Sunday - Molly

As you can see, our sweet, snuggly and adoptable pal Molly is absolutely loving her catnip chili pepper toy.

Here she is with a bit of the silly: 

Nom Nom Nom!

And then with a bit of the easy: 

Purrs.

Here's hoping your Sunday is as good as Molly's. :)

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Tom and Andrew

Tom and Andrew had never met until they found themselves in the same room at PAWS

Tuxedo Tom and his magnificent whiskers!

Now they're pals who like to hang out and play together. 

Dreamy eyed Andrew, taking a breather after a nice long play session.

Both of these handsome mancats are neutered, micro-chipped and up-to date on all their vaccinations.  While both have tested negative for FeLV, they are positive for FIV (the feline immunodeficiency virus).  But please don't let that stop you from adopting one - or both - of these sweet-natured, cuddly and playful guys.  After all, "...FIV-positive cats can live normal lives both in quality and duration," even though "...they do take special care in terms of monitoring them for signs of infection..." (source: www.bestfriends.org)

Come meet Tom and Andrew today, and fall in love!

"He is very playful, sometimes tackling our other cat while she sleeps. He has lost his extra weight and looks great! No problems with the liter box or food. Thank you for everything!!! We love him!!"

Have a great weekend, everybody!
