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!

Cry Baby!

Sunday, January 17th, 2016

Cry Baby’s owner could no longer care for her. Cry Baby is a Special Needs Cat that would make a wonderful Senior Companion! She is a Dilute Calico and her birthdate is 41/05 so she will be coming up on 11 years young! We are not sure how she gets along with kids or dogs but she gets along very well with other cats. She is very loving and loves to be petted! She would make someone very happy to have her! She is a wonderful cat! Cry Baby is all ready to go to her home! Cry Baby can be seen at Petco in Boardman!

Patty Cake, Patty Cake ————— has been given her “Furrever” Home!!!!!!

Tuesday, December 29th, 2015

Here at West Side Cats? resides a beautiful Calico named Patty Cake!! She is absolutely gorgeous!! She certainly has a mind of her own and she will let you know it! Did I say attitude? She knows she is beautiful and wants you to know it too!! She is almost 1 1/2 years young being born on 7/14/14. She used to be a stray in Niles who some wonderful person was feeding because she was probably just left behind. One will never know. She was brought into WSC on 6/10/15 and is waiting to find just the right person for her to own!! We are not sure how she deals with children and dogs. Patty Cake would probably be best with just being by her wonderful self in a home. Some cats here she likes but some she doesn’t like so much. That would have to be your call after meeting with Patty Cake. She is very affectionate with us humans and loves to be patted! Please come see her at WSC any Tuesday – Saturday from 2:00 P.M. until 6:00 P.M. Patty Cake says “Thank You”!!!!!Patty Cake 1

Our little Michhone!!!!! Has been adopted!!!!! Thank you!!!!

Thursday, December 24th, 2015

This little girl is Michhone and she is staying at West Side Cats? only until she gets her “Furrever” home! She is a very scared long-haired Calico born on September 1st of this year. She does get along well with other cats and dogs but does not seem to do well with children. At least little children. Older kids who are very gentle and patient with her might be ok. She is very loving and loves her belly rubs! Michhone will take time and patience for her to come around from being so scared. She came in with her siblings and they are not as scared. Michhone will make a wonderful little kitty for just the right person(s). Please stop by and see her. She does let me pat her after I go up to her gently and slowly. Please consider adopting Michhone soon! A home environment would be just the right thing for her! West Side Cats is open from 2 until 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. We will be closed for Christmas and New Year’s Day. Thanks! Pat.Michhone 1


Runt! He was adopted!!!!!!!

Wednesday, December 9th, 2015

West Side Cats? has a cat that someone named Runt! Don’t look at me! I guess she was the runt of the litter so when you adopt her you can change her name. I’m sure she would appreciate that! Runt was born on 11/19/13 and is a Dilute Calico. She gets along with other cats but it is unknown about how she gets along with children and/or dogs. She was brought into the shelter on 11/28/15 so she hasn’t been here very long. I know she loves Christmas though so won’t you come in and give her an awesome Furrever home for the “Holidays” and forever!! She is very playful and so funny! You would both fall in love with each other! Also with December being “Home for the Holidays”, all adoptions are half price all month long. You would gain such a love bug into your life! Come in and meet the Runt and her friends!Runt 1


Tired little Shalimar! – Update: Shalimar has her own Furrever Home!!!!! Thank you!!!!

Friday, November 27th, 2015

The other day at West Side Cats? when I took a photo of Shalimar in her reindeer hat at the beginning when I first got there – well this is Shalimar at the end of the day! Too much excitement going on for her! Love you Shalimar!Shalimar Sleeping

Shalimar – Update: Shalimar has her own Furrever Home!!!!! Thank you!!!!

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

Yesterday I was at West Side Cats? doing my weekly photography sessions with all my feline friends! The only cat in the shelter that would wear the reindeer hat was my personal assistant Shalimar! She is so darn cute! She is an older cat who doesn’t like to be picked up but she will ask to come up on your lap and literally stay for hours! Why she hasn’t been adopted yet is beyond me? She is just so funny! Wait until you see the last photo I took of her yesterday!! Here she is!_DSC0007

Shalimar says “Happy Thanksgiving”! – Update: Shalimar has her own Furrever Home!!!!! Thank you!!!!

Friday, November 13th, 2015


Just wanted to post this photo I took yesterday at West Side Cats! I was sitting with Shalimar who owns the front office and I set up this shot without even realizing that the turkey was also in the shot! Shalimar told me she can’t wait for Thanksgiving! She expects a full course dinner Kimm! Get your food shopping on! Of course our star of the show is up for adoption. There is an interest in her but as of right now she is still waiting for her Furrever home where she can have a real Thanksgiving dinner with you! Stop by 2217 Mahoning Ave and celebrate early with all our turkeys (oops – cats and kittens)! We love them all!

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!

Kimberly was Adopted!!!! Thank you Kind Sir!!!!!!

Sunday, October 25th, 2015

Cute little Kimberly was found at PetSmart and brought over to West Side Cats? for us to take care of. Kimberly is only about 5 months young. Under her circumstances she is very shy and afraid. We are all working with her and letting her know that we are not going to hurt her. I’m sure she will come around – it’s just going to take time. Kimberly needs a family who will give her a nice warm and friendly home in which she will retreat from her shyness. She is a beautiful little Calico kitten. She had a wobble removed from her neck on 7/21/15 and is doing absolutely fine! As you can see of the photo in her little house, she does come with a tail! She was sitting on it in the first photo! She is so cute to watch scampering around! Come see Kimberly at WSC – you never know what cuteness you will find!!!!_DSC0006
