Cassie and Rommi

Friday, July 22nd, 2016

Here are two sisters at West Side Cats! We sent their brothers out to PetSmart in Boardman whose names are Pollux and Castor. These little girls are Cassie and Rommi! They all came in to the shelter on 7/2/16. They were born on 4/1/16! They are beautiful long haired Calicos! Very pretty cats! They do NOT like dogs but love other cats and love children! You can adopt both together or just one. Wouldn’t you just want one of these little girls to sit on your lap purring away contently? They are very well behaved and will give your life so much enjoyment! Stop by soon as I know they will be adopted quickly! See you soon! Love Cassie and Rommi!

Cassie, Rommie Pollux and Castor! Irresistible Kittens!! Could you help them out with their vetting needs? Not yet available for adoption – but soon!

Thursday, July 7th, 2016

Here at West Side Cats we have some of the cutest kittens you have ever seen! (No favoritism here). Here are Cassie who is a female Calico with some black on her heard, Rommie is a female Calico with all three colors on her head, Pollux has less yellow on his head who is a male Calico and last but not least Castor who is a male Calico has no black on his head. These kittens were brought in on 7/2/16 by a good Samaritan. They will need to be fixed and get their rabies shots and then they will be available for adoption in a couple of weeks. Would you like to “Sponsor one of these Kittens”? Are you interested in adopting them? We would appreciate any help with their vet bills if you could do anything possible it would be so appreciated! Every life we save is another life given to one of God’s creatures! Thank you!

Let me sing you a “Melody”! Melody was adopted!!!!

Sunday, June 26th, 2016

Well I’ve been told that I can sing? So right now I will play you a melody! Melody the cat that is! Melody was found on the street in Youngstown. She looked like she was nursing kittens when she came into the shelter. Melody does NOT like CATS or DOGS! She does however get along with children! Melody is a sweet girl and she loves to cuddle! Melody is a beautiful Calico who is approximately 2 1/2 years old. She was born on 1/1/2014. Please stop by and visit Melody and bring your kid(s) with you! You will see how she loves them! Your household would have to be cat and dog free though – extremely important for this adoption to work. Melody says “If you bring me to my Furrever home, I will play a melody for you all the time”! Hear her PURR!!!!!

Shelby! (No not the car – the cat silly)!

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

Last week I spotted a Shelby! Wow – it was gorgeous! Well I did see a Mustang Shelby on TV that I thought was awesome but I’m actually talking about the cat named Shelby at the West Side Cats shelter!! Shelby was found as a stray in Canfield, OH and she is just too wonderful to be left outside! Shelby turned 3 on 1/1/16. She is a beautiful Calico that I just can’t believe someone would let wander. I just have to think that her owners are looking for her? Shelby does get along with the other cats here. She seems to really love kids and is very gentle and kind. We do not know about dogs. Won’t you come and take home a Shelby today? She will make someone a very lovable and awesome kitty cat!!!


Beautiful Brenda!

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

OK everyone. I have a little story about this beautiful female Calico with medium length hair who is about 2 1/2 years old. Her name is Brenda. Brenda was over groomed (I knew that could happen but I had never seen it). The owner came in with Brenda and asked Kimm if she could take a look at her. Then the owner asked if we could take the cat. We agreed to take Brenda and Kimm asked if she would be able to donate to us towards the care of Brenda. The lady then told Kimm that her checkbook was out in the car and then proceeded to drive away! If you can’t give a donation just tell us instead of sneaking away. Well Brenda is a sweetheart of a cat! She doesn’t bother the other cats. Not sure about kids and/or dogs? She is very friendly with people and loves to be petted! She is a beautiful girl!Brenda 1


West Side Cats has their own planet “Mars”! – Mars has been adopted!!!!!

Saturday, May 21st, 2016

At West Side Cats, I thought I was on another planet when I was introduced to Mars! Mars has been there a little while. Mars is on the quieter side and very friendly! Mars was a stray outside and the nice person who found her had 2 dogs and really couldn’t keep Mars as much as they would have wanted to! Mars turned 1 on January 1, 2016. Mars is a beautiful Calico! We have no history on Mars so we are not sure about children and dogs. She seems to have no problem around other cats. She was once someone’s pet and she would love to be someone’s pet again soon! Mars absolutely loves to be petted! Please stop by West Side Cats and come see “Mars”! You will be happy that you did!

Our silly Piper!

Friday, April 22nd, 2016

Here is Piper! She is very scared because after her family had a baby they no longer needed her in their home after that was all she knew! They said the baby was allergic to Piper. Piper is a beautiful, sweet and funny girl who will be only 4 on 6/30/16. Piper came in on 4/13/16 and has been hiding under a cat bed for most of the time she has been there. She is extremely shy around animals and children. Jane and I were working with her the other day and look what she did for us! She was posing for animal crackers and being really silly! Of course I cropped Jane out of the photos – poor Jane! So Piper is an awesome cat – she just needs a wonderful “Furrever” home where people really want her and love her. She can be the biggest love bug ever when she lets you get to know her! Stop by West Side Cats to see her! Piper hangs out in the break room which is the room right after the office as you come in. We are open Tuesday through Saturday from 2 to 6 P.M. Thanks! Love, hugs and purrs from Piper!

Paprika – spicing things up at West Side Cats! Paprika is now at Petco in Boardman!

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

We are spicing things up at West Side Cats with the arrival of Paprika! Paprika is a female Dilute Calico who was trapped In a feral colony of cats in the Chicago area. She is such a cutie! She was born around 1/1/15 so she is just over a year old. We don’t know anything about her background. She does get along with the other cats here though. What her interaction with dogs and children we are not sure about. Paprika is a little shy but once you stop and pet her and give her attention she becomes a purring factory!! First chance you get please come to West Side Cats at 2217 Mahoning Avenue in Youngstown, Ohio 44509. Come in and ask to see Paprika and of course all her friends! Take home some spice today!Paprika 1


Our Planet “MARS” has been adopted!!!!

Monday, March 28th, 2016

Now I know we have 9 planets (yes Pluto will always be a planet to me). But at West Side Cats? I think we have the cutest planet of all time! Introducing “Mars”! Mars is a gorgeous female Calico who is just over 1 year old being born around 1/1/15. Some kind people found her and took her in but couldn’t keep her due to their pet limit. We want to thank those people from the bottom of our hearts for bringing her to us! As you can see from one of the photos, she gets along very well with other cats. Of course dogs are unknown. She is on the shy and skittish side but she is loving once she gets to know you. Mars will require a quieter environment so I would have to say no kids or no young kids. She would make a great one on one addition to your home! Mars just told me to ask you to come visit her soon! Please? Mars just needs an awesome “Furrever” home!

The photo on the left shows Mars with a kitten friend of her’s. She looks like she is protecting them! Actually there were 3 of them hiding behind the litter boxes but when I’m determined “I always get my cat’s photos”! Mars 1


Timber! He got adopted!!!!!!

Sunday, January 31st, 2016

At West Side Cats we have a very beautiful Dilute Calico! We don’t know much about her but if you stop by to visit Timber you can probably find out more about her! She is very well behaved and just wants to be loved in a nice warm comfy home. Not sure how she fits in with children or dogs but she does just fine with other cats. Give Timber a visit as soon as you find a chance in your busy schedule! You won’t regret it!
