Sonny is nine years old, and last week his owners moved away and left him locked up in the apartment to fend for himself.

A bag of cat food was left behind, and Sonny managed to tear it open and avoid going hungry. Water was becoming a bit problematic, but luckily the landlady went into the apartment before things got urgent. She brought him to West Side Cats. After we did his healthcare he was taken to PetSmart in Niles.

He’s a gorgeous longhaired boy. Come meet him at PetSmart from 9-11am or 6-8pm when our volunteer is there.

Tom has taken over the top of the dryer from Chevy since Chevy doesn’t think it is tall enough now! Tom is a male grey tabby DSH and he is declawed in front. He will make a wonderful Senior Companion! His owner moved and decided not to take the cats. Tom’s DOB is 1/1/2001. He is super lovable! He has certainly found a place in our hearts here at West Side Cats?!Tom

Our “Queen” Sasha!

When you open the door at West Side Cats? now, you are greeted by our Royal Highness herself – SASHA!!!! Sasha hangs out in our front office because she does NOT like other cats – period! She makes that perfectly well known. But she loves humans of all kinds, ages, doesn’t matter – she loves everyone! We are not sure how she gets along with dogs though.

Sasha is a female DSH Tortie Special Needs cat who will make a wonderful Senior Companion! She was abandoned when her family moved out and just left her there to fend for herself. She was then taken in by a kind neighbor who took care of her for 3 years but can no longer do so. Thank you to that kind person who took her in!

Sasha’s birthday is 1/1/2009. She is only 6 years young! I know she would find a special place in your heart as she has ours! She is so gentle and loving! As you can see she loves boxes and is very clean. She is a love bug! Come and meet Sasha! I hope that she will become YOUR “Queen for a lifetime”!

Scruffy was found as a stray, fending for himself and extremely matted. Matting can be quite painful for a kitty so we asked our vet to give him a “lion” cut. Eventually he will be a handsome long haired guy again.

Scruffy is a very good-natured boy born in 2011. He’s at PetSmart in Niles just waiting for someone to come in and take him to his forever home. Our volunteer is there from about 9:00-11:00 a.m. and from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the evenings.
