Good Morning everyone!  My name is Marble!

Good Morning everyone! My name is Marble!

Marble came to the shelter with three BB’s in her.  The Doctor removed them and she is fine now.  She is really a sweet little cat.  Marble is about 5 years old.  She would love a forever home!  Marble is very well behaved and needs a good family to love her.  Please come see her at the West Side Cats!

What a day!

???????????????????????????????We took in 4 unplanned  arrivals at the shelter today and one last night.

Found emaciated with blood on his front paw, Oliver was probably in an auto accident and was found by Laura, a volunteer, on Mahoning Ave on her way to the shelter. He might be a flame point under all the dirt.  He’s going to the vet in the morning.

MeowMeow is an extremely pregnant girl.  She’s a longhaired buff tabby and so sweet.

Two beautiful kittens, a tortie and a grey tabby are as sweet and loving as they come.

And Dumpling, an orange tabby girl, who came in last night, has calmed down since the vet gave her some steroids to help with the pain and infection and she is in a comfy condo with lots of yummies to eat.

None of these kitties are up for adoption yet. They will be after necessary healthcare is completed.

We can’t always afford to take in this many kitties in a 24 hour period but it is what it is. All of them are adorable and loving and we just said “yes”.  If you can help with the healthcare they will need, feel free to donate using the donate button on our facebook page
