Faeden was adopted!

Saturday, November 14th, 2015

_DSC0012_DSC0011This is Faeden when she was at West Side Cats the other day. She can now be visited at PetSmart in Niles. She has an interesting story to tell. Faeden was accidentally dropped by her Momma Cat who was running through a nearby neighborhood. She wandered around for quite awhile begging for food and love! A nice young man found her and brought her to West Side Cats?! Thank you young man!! Now Faeden would love a family of her own! She came into the shelter on 9/19/15. She went over to PetSmart in Niles yesterday – 11/13/15. She seems to get along well with other cats. I think she would love children. We are not sure about dogs? .Faeden was born on 3/29/15. She is just so darn cute and loves to run from one room to the next. She will keep you entertained that is for sure! Please go see Faeden and give her a wonderful home for the Holidays!!!! Thanks!!

Spike was Adopted!!!!!!!!!

Friday, October 23rd, 2015

Update: Spike no longer has his cone of shame!! It’s (almost) that time of the year again so I wanted you to meet Mr. Spike! He is about 4 years old. He is very good around other cats and children. Dogs we are not so sure about. He loved to cuddle and give kisses and will not scratch unless you give him medicine. Spike had hernia surgery a while ago hence the cone head appearance. He is doing very well. He is a very happy cat! Every time I come in the room that he is in, he runs to greet me!!!! Spike will make someone very, very happy!!!!! If you are fortunate to adopt Spike – please keep him safe inside – this can be a cruel world for cats outside. I learned the hard way a few years ago. Never again will I let my cat outside!

Petco Adoption Event Last Saturday A Success

Friday, February 8th, 2013

The adoption event was great! We brought two kittens and both were adopted. Smoochie mostly took naps but woke up for visitors. We met lots of people who were looking to adopt a dog, but unfortunately, there were no dogs at the event. At least they got to meet both Linus and Smoochie and we gave out many Smoochie pins. There will be another event at Petco next month which we are looking forward to.
