Our “Queen” Sasha!

Friday, April 17th, 2015




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.

Choo Choo is STILL waiting for his Furever Home!!! Please help our little Choo Choo go home!!

This is Choo Choo! He is a VERY Special Needs Cat. Choo Choo needs a home with no dogs (sorry dogs) or no children (sorry kids). He does get along very well with other cats though.

Choo Choo is about 9 years old. He is a DMH Grey Tabby who was found just hanging around the Youngstown Development Center. The wonderful people at YDC brought him to us at West Side Cats? to take care of.

We would love to see Choo Choo find his Furever home! He gives us so much enjoyment that we would love to share it with you! Every time I come in he runs right up to me for some petting and loving.

In the first photo you can’t tell but he is sitting in his favorite roll around chair! He is so funny! Come and share some love with Choo Choo today! He WILL steal your heart!!!!!!!
