Sandy 2

Sandy says Hi from West Side Cats! As you can see Sandy is a male black long haired kitty who was found wandering around a neighborhood all alone. A wonderful person brought him in and most likely saved his life! Sandy’s birthdate is 1/1/12. He is very loving and loves to be petted! Every time I enter the room he is in, he runs right to me and is a camera hound! Sandy would love and deserves a forever home! Give us a call or stop by and visit soon as I’m sure Sandy will be scooped up in no time!

Midnight wandered into his neighbors house after his owner put him out. How despicable is that! Midnight is such a good cat! He is a DSH Black kitty and his birthdate is 12/1/2012. He looks kind of sad in these photos but he seems happy at the shelter. I really hope that someone will come in and take him to a wonderful furever home! He deserves that so much! He is very lovable and loves to be petted! Come take a chance on Midnight! Please!

I am Lucy!

I am Lucy!

When I came to the shelter I was living on someone’s porch.  They were feeding me but I didn’t like my situation very much.  Now I am at the West Side Cats shelter and would like you to bring me home!  Please come visit me.  I am a very special kitty!
