Say hi to Sherman!

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

Say hi to Sherman! Sherman was dropped off in a suitcase the other day at West Side Cats! It was pretty chilly out that day! Can you imagine how scared he must have been? One of the volunteers came in that morning and found the suitcase along with other items, brought everything inside, opened it up and out jumped Sherman! Imagine the surprise for both of them!

I was petting Sherman yesterday and he is soooooooo loving!! He was purring away and rubbing my hand!! After what he has been through, he is still so loving!! Sherman is a Black/White Male. He had to have been someone’s loved pet – he even had a store bought flea collar on him! I couldn’t imagine giving him up for anything in the world!

Come see Sherman! He definitely needs a great Furever home! He deserves it! Sherman says “Thank You”!

Emiri has come a long way in the past few months! She used to stay up high on the shelves when people came into her area (even the volunteers), but now she comes down and loves to be petted and loved! She has learned that we are not going to hurt her. Emiri is still a little shy with strangers but is coming around nicely! It is so nice to be able to pet her!! Her birthdate is 4/1/13 so she is just over 2 years old. She has the greatest markings! She is one of a kind sweetheart! Please come visit Emiri soon as I know someone will snatch her up! Emiri is at West Side Cats? but really wants her own person to love!

Update on Dash-UR!

Dash-UR! is a Male White with Black Spots Kitty. He has that unique moustache under his nose which is so cute! His birthdate is 8/2/2013. His owner moved and just left him behind so Dash-UR! is STILL looking for a new home! Why someone would just move and leave this wonderful guy to fend for himself is beyond me! He is so loving and mellow! Please come visit Dash at the West Side Cats soon! You will fall in love with him and can visit all his friends!

Update on Leonard!!!

Friday, April 24th, 2015




Update on Leonard at West Side Cats! If you remember Leonard, he was put out into a trash pile when his family decided to move and just discard him! Luckily he was saved from all that meanness, but his face was so messed up when he first came in. He is really coming along appearance wise but he is still terribly shaken up and extremely timid and afraid. If you do put your hand in his cage though, he will rub up against you and purr so Leonard is very loving despite what happened to him. Leonard needs a very quiet environment with no other pets or children. He is going to need someone who will work with him and be extremely patient with him. He is a very special guy! He was born on 7/1/14 so he is still pretty young. As you can see from the photos below – the after and before. He has come so far but has a long recovery emotionally ahead. If you live alone or with another adult and have some love and patience to spare – please come and see Leonard for yourself! He needs that someone special! Thanks! Pat
