Marble is still waiting for her Furever home!

Friday, May 29th, 2015

Marble 4


Marble is a wonderful and sweet female Tortie! She was a stray and when we brought her to the vet she was found to have 3 bb’s in her so the Dr. removed them. She was also brought in with 3 kittens but she is the only one still at the West Side Cats shelter. Her birthdate is 4/1/2010 so Marble has many, many years of kisses, cuddling and purring for you! She really is a very quiet sweetheart and I know that you will just love her! Come visit Marble upstairs at West Side Cats Tuesday – Saturday 2 to 6 p.m. and starting June 1st the hours will be 3 to 7 p.m. Marble says “Thank you!”

Veronica – silly and beautiful!

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

Here is our comical and beautiful Veronica at West Side Cats?! I got the shot of her laying down and a close up but I guess I disturbed her sleep and she started yawning! She is a wonderful girl – a Dilute Tortie who was abandoned at Small World Rescue with 6 kittens but she had no milk! She of course has since been fixed and has all her shots. Veronica is so laid back in our upstairs room that I think people just miss her. If you are interested in Veronica, please feel free to come see her here Tuesday – Saturday from 2 – 6 p.m. and starting June 1st the hours will be 3 – 7 p.m. Thanks! Hugs and Kisses from Veronica!

Say hi to Sherman!

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

Say hi to Sherman! Sherman was dropped off in a suitcase the other day at West Side Cats! It was pretty chilly out that day! Can you imagine how scared he must have been? One of the volunteers came in that morning and found the suitcase along with other items, brought everything inside, opened it up and out jumped Sherman! Imagine the surprise for both of them!

I was petting Sherman yesterday and he is soooooooo loving!! He was purring away and rubbing my hand!! After what he has been through, he is still so loving!! Sherman is a Black/White Male. He had to have been someone’s loved pet – he even had a store bought flea collar on him! I couldn’t imagine giving him up for anything in the world!

Come see Sherman! He definitely needs a great Furever home! He deserves it! Sherman says “Thank You”!

Herb 1

Herb has to be the most affectionate kitty here at West Side Cats?! He loves to sit in your lap and give you hugs and kisses! He will even fall at your feet to be petted! He has such a great personality! Herb’s date of birth is 4/19/14 – a very young man. Herb had a polyp removed from his right ear. We are waiting to make sure everything is fine before he will be available for adoption. Herb says “Thanks for looking at me”!

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
