Little Chance has BB shots under his skin

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

He is the sweetest little guy. We’re not sure how much of his mobility he will regain, if any, but we’ll know a lot more tomorrow when he sees one of our vets. He does have some spinal damage. In the meantime the preemie diapers are absolutely huge on him so they’re being held up by a rubber band. Fortunately he doesn’t seem to be in any pain. He’s not walking but he does get up on all fours which doesn’t stop him from zooming around dragging his back legs behind him.

Big enough food bowls?

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

Do you think we have big enough food bowls for our kitties? Marble (left) Darryl (back) and Jo (right) don’t seem to think so here at West Side Cats! Our wonderful volunteers fill these and many more bowls and water bowls and wet food bowls each and every day here at our No-Kill Adoption and Rescue Shelter, along with all the cleaning they do! We couldn’t do it without them! Thank you to each and every one for what you do! Love you guys! Pat.

Right now Lex is residing at the West Side Cats? Hotel (or so Lex thinks) and is enjoying it! Lex is extremely playful and extremely active! So cute!!!! Lex says: “Thanks for looking at my photos! I’ll be ready for adoption in awhile if you want me!”

Chevy has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge

Thursday, May 21st, 2015

Chevy 5

Chevy 4

Update – Yesterday we said goodbye to Chevy, who has been a fixture here for over two years. Everybody knew her as “The Dryer Cat” because she practically lived on top of the dryer in the laundry room. She and Sean were special friends and he came with us as we made that last hard drive to the vet’s office.
Chevy had not been herself since the fire. She didn’t re-occupy the new dryer and she started spending most of her time in the window by the stairs. She was still eating, but she had started losing weight. We speculated that she was still upset about the fire, or that maybe she’d inhaled smoke. Bloodwork at the vet’s office showed that all of her organs were still functioning well.
Yesterday morning she told us that it was time. The end was peaceful and Sean was there petting her the whole time.
Dr. Allen thinks it may have been a mass, or perhaps FIP. Dr. Hradil saw her Friday and said pretty much the same thing.
We’ll miss our Laundry Queen. Chevy was a wonderful character!

Here is Chevy our silly kitty! She is a Tortie with medium length hair. She was found in a parking lot. She used to hang out on top of our tall dryer but we have had to replace that dryer with a lower one and one of the other cats took over her spot so she is not too happy! Chevy was born on 9/1/11. She has quite the personality and loves to be loved. Chevy really needs a home of her own. Stop by West Side Cats? and visit Chevy. She is awesome!!!! Maybe you have a dryer she would love to hang out on?
