Play Time!

Sunday, May 3rd, 2015


One of our very busy volunteers took some time out to give these two wonderful cats some play time! Our group of dedicated volunteers put their heart and souls into what they do! We need more volunteers at the Shelter to not only spend time with the kitties but also cleaning, laundry, helping out with our events, office work, fundraising, etc. If things need to be done then we need a volunteer to do it.

If you even have a couple of hours each week we could use your help! Stop by Tues – Sat from 2 to 6 P.M. or call 330-792-4228 and we will find something for you to do. Please consider helping out these wonderful Kitties! You make all the difference to them!

Thank you! Love, Kisses and Purrs – all the kitties at West Side Cats!

Abused Himmy girl Dhali finds her way to WSC

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

DhaliDhali was rescued after a man investigated a group of kids outside his apartment building attacking an animal with stones and sticks.

After he chased the kids away, he found this lovely little Himmy staring up at him and waiting to be picked up.

Dhali should never have been out on the street. She is a very small cat, and declawed in front. She walks kind of funny, leaving us to wonder if she doesn’t have a tich of CH as well.

We will take her over to the vet tomorrow for testing and a checkup. In the meantime, she is resting comfortably in her new cushy bed and chowing down on Kitten Chow.

Pee Wee crosses the rainbow bridge

Monday, April 27th, 2015

Pee-WeeToday we made the tough decision to say goodbye to Pee Wee, and he was humanely put to sleep at the vet’s office. He presented with extreme neurological symptoms on Wednesday, most likely from a stroke. The vet treated him with antibiotics and steroids, and we set him up at the shelter in a private room with a heated bed. He improved daily, and when volunteers checked on him this morning he was walking around and had been eating on his own.
The volunteer who was servicing his room found him an hour or so later in crash position and having grand mal seizures. The vet thinks he had a second stroke, much worse than the first. He was suffering and was not going to recover, the seizures were too intense and did too much damage.
Everybody here is going to miss him very much, he was a quiet, older soul it was impossible not to love. I pray that he is at the Rainbow Bridge and restored to youth and health, with forever ahead of him to bask in the sun and play in the fields of flowers.
