Our Little Christmas Tree at West Side Cats

Saturday, November 28th, 2015

Also at West Side Cats? we have a small Christmas tree in the front office. I don’t know who but someone or someone(s) put cat treats and canned cat food under that tree? It is very pretty! All the cats are being good and haven’t even touched it. I know they are being good for Santa Cat! Of course us humans like to look at it too! This photo was taken before the treats and food mysteriously appeared! I also want to get a shot of it without the office lights on so you can see how pretty it is with the lights on!Giving Tree

Chloe – (November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month)

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015



Chloe is a really special girl! She turned 10 on 2/1/2005 so she really needs a very quiet home being the only pet. Chloe is so mild mannered and laid back. She doesn’t bother the other cats and kind of does her own thing. She is also very affectionate and loves to be made a fuss over. She came to us when her owner had to go to a nursing home and it broke the owner’s heart to have to give Chloe up! We reassured her that Chloe would be well taken care of and we will try and try to get Chloe another Furrever home that she so deserves. She has made the adjustment very well and I know that she would be able to do it again.

Can you find it in your heart to give Chloe a warm and wonderful home of her own? Chloe can melt your heart with her goodness! Please come visit with Chloe and I just know you will want to take her home with you! West Side Cats is located at 2217 Mahoning Avenue, Youngstown, OH 44509. Or call 330-792-4228. Chloe will be standing by waiting for your arrival! Chloe says Thank You to all of you out there! Let’s give Chloe an awesome Furrever home for the Holidays! I can see her with a Santa hat on next to your Christmas tree!

Daryl – King of the World!

Monday, November 9th, 2015

For all the world to see: Your Majesty, Your Royal Highness – King Daryl!!! Daryl is considered a Special Needs cat because he is very nervous and he has been given to us as a feral cat. He was being fed outside by a wonderful person who then brought him in when the weather turned colder. So he has had interaction with people. It would take a very special person(s) to work with Daryl. You must have a lot of patience and time and never allow him to be outside again. Daryl just had a birthday on 11/6 and he turned 2. Daryl has a lot of years to live out. I would hate to see him never get a home. He is a beautiful boy! He has never been aggressive with me, just nervous and timid. As you can see he is a beautiful orange cat! He is a big boy! I love Daryl! He can be visited at West Side Cats? any Tuesday through Saturday from 2 P.M. to 6 P.M. Please come introduce yourself to Daryl and give him a chance at a wonderful life at your house! Daryl would be worth every moment and thanks you for just reading this. Daryl thinks he is just misunderstood. He comes down when it is time to eat and interacts with the volunteers and the other cats. I would not recommend having a dog with him though just because we don’t know his background. I think he would like a quiet home so he can learn to trust again. Love Daryl. _DSC0035

Faith & Gracie were Adopted!!!!

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

Faith and Gracie are at West Side Cats. Faith and Gracie must stay together due to their special needs. Faith and Gracie were born on 3/3/15 so they still have plenty of growing to do! They are a little timid because of their diminished sight, so they want you to greet them slowly and calmly. Faith and Gracie are Special Needs Kitties because of their sight problems.. But that doesn’t keep them from doing what they want to do! They need some special loving care to come out of their shells. Please stop over to West Side Cats to see Faith and Gracie!! They are the cute little gray kittens! We hope you both get an awesome Furrever home together!!!


November is Adopt A Senior Pet and National Pet Awareness Month!

Sunday, November 1st, 2015

November is Adopt A Senior Pet Month and National Pet Awareness Month. The First Full Week in November is National Animal Shelter and Rescue Appreciation Week!

I want to thank West Side Cats for all that they do for the lost and abused cats and kittens in the Mahoning Valley and from far away! You are the only No-Kill Shelter around for miles and I truly appreciate that!

Please consider adopting a Senior Cat (or any cat or kitten) from West Side Cats located on 2217 Mahoning Drive, Youngstown, OH 44509. They are a Licensed Non-Profit Shelter who literally runs on a shoe string!

Cats are $50, Kittens are $90 and Special Needs Cats are $40. All the Felines who get adopted are spayed/neutered and have had all their shots. These prices don’t reflect the actual costs of taking in these wonderful creatures. This is why we need donations along with volunteers to help clean the shelter and many other things that we do. Please consider giving a few hours of your time!

Thank you! Pat McCamy.
