Ebay auction of Football Helmet to benefit WSC!

This amazing helmet was donated to West Side Cats by Riddell Sports, then Don Cockroft was nice enough to ask Cleveland Browns players to autograph it for us.  As if the helmet wasn’t already completely awesome, remember that all proceeds from this auction benefit West Side Cats.

Please share this auction around and remember that special Browns fan this holiday season!

Bosco was born 7/1/2009.  He was found abandoned by a dumpster,  dirty and showing signs of neglect.  If you pet him and walk away he hugs your legs with his paws so you won’t leave him.  He’s a very friendly and funny guy.  Come and meet this cute companion at the shelter.



Decker  was born 2/16/2013.  He was found abandoned, hurt, hungry and scared.  We  treated the bite marks on his body and made sure he got veterinary care.  He’s doing much better.    He is a nice mellow cats and gets along with everyone.  Come and meet this sweetheart upstairs at the shelter.




Janelle is a friendly and beautiful black kitty.  Look how pretty her eyes are.  Janelle was born on 11/1/2011.  She will make a wonderful companion.  Come and meet her upstairs at the shelter.

R’s Update: Unfortunately not the best of news

We are very worried here about our little Ralphie.  Despite being on an antibiotic he has developed pneumonia.  We are keeping him warm and fed and ask that you keep him in your prayers.  Ronnie’s (tortie) feet are bothering her a lot making her resist our efforts to get her to come out and play.  Rickie (black) seems to be having foot issues too but is walking better than his sister.  Let’s pray that the new antibiotic knocks out the pneumonia and restores Ralphie to his usual smiling self and that all continue to recover.
