Our shy, scared and silly Piper!

Friday, April 22nd, 2016

Here is Piper! She is very scared because after her family had a baby they no longer needed her in their home after that was all she knew! They said the baby was allergic to Piper. Piper is a beautiful, sweet and funny girl who will be only 4 on 6/30/16. Piper came in on 4/13/16 and has been hiding under a cat bed for most of the time she has been there. She is extremely shy around animals and children. Jane and I were working with her the other day and look what she did for us! She was posing for animal crackers and being really silly! Of course I cropped Jane out of the photos – poor Jane! So Piper is an awesome cat – she just needs a wonderful “Furrever” home where people really want her and love her. She can be the biggest love bug ever when she lets you get to know her! Stop by West Side Cats to see her! Piper hangs out in the break room which is the room right after the office as you come in. We are open Tuesday through Saturday from 2 to 6 P.M. Thanks! Love, hugs and purrs from Piper!

Paprika – spicing things up at West Side Cats!

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

We are spicing things up at West Side Cats with the arrival of Paprika! Paprika is a female Dilute Calico who was trapped In a feral colony of cats in the Chicago area. She is such a cutie! She was born around 1/1/15 so she is just over a year old. We don’t know anything about her background. She does get along with the other cats here though. What her interaction with dogs and children we are not sure about. Paprika is a little shy but once you stop and pet her and give her attention she becomes a purring factory!! First chance you get please come to West Side Cats at 2217 Mahoning Avenue in Youngstown, Ohio 44509. Come in and ask to see Paprika and of course all her friends! Take home some spice today!Paprika 1

Harper is here!

Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

Here at West Side Cats Harper came in about a couple of weeks ago. He was extremely scared. He is a big Orange cat who was surrendered because his owner was moving to a place that did not allow cats. Harper is just over 4 years old – 1/1/12. He does not like the other cats and spends most of the day hiding on them. We are not sure about dogs but I would say probably not with him being timid. He does love to lay on people and get picked up. We are working with him to come out of his timidness. The other night I was in the front office and I watched him peeking out from the glass in the other room. He is doing better but it is going to take someone to really love him and work with him. Harper is a really nice cat who has just undergone some heartbreak and needs a home of his own where he can be an only cat. School age kids would be ok. So please stop by West Side Cats anytime Tuesday through Saturday from 2 to 6 p.m. Please give Harper a second chance at a great life! Thanks!Harper
