Shalimar says “Happy Thanksgiving”!

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

4 Step

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

???????????????????????????????Birthdate 8/1/2009. Meet 4 Step. She was named because of the 4 step-like stripes of color on her back. She’s a sweet but shy calico who came from a hoarding house. It’s time for her life to be turned around by a loving adopter. Come meet her at the shelter.

BubblesBubbles was accidentaly poisoned by a Hartz flea bath followed by a Hartz flea collar.  She spent the last week in the hospital where is was very touch and go.  When she finally started eating again we were able to bring her back to the shelter.   Unfortunately, all of the other cats seem to be upsetting Bubbles a bit.  She would like a quiet home where she can relax and devote herself to you.  She looks like a typical tuxedo cat but she’s actually a calico courtesy of the cutest orange spot you ever saw covering her back foot.   She’s still missing lots of fur due to the flea infestation but with the fleas gone the fur is growing back.  She was obviously loved sometime in her life as evidenced by her girth (she’s a little overweight).  Come meet her at the shelter.  All her healthcare is done and she is ready to go home and be loved by you.
