Josephine – Adoption has been Pre-Paid – she is already to go to her Furrever Home!!

Saturday, November 21st, 2015

Josephine has already had her adoption pre-paid by a wonderful person by the name of Jason Cooke. She is already to go to her Furrever Home! Josephine is a Dilute Tortie with long hair. She gets along very well with other cats and also gets along with dogs. We are unsure how she would be with children but she is very mild mannered. I think she would be ok. She was part of a clean-up that saved her and other cats from fending for themselves (even in the winter). Josephine is almost 4 years old. She was born around 1/1/2012. Please come and visit with Josephine! She will help you pack her up and away you will go! She is a very beautiful cat and keeps herself extremely clean. You will just fall in love with her!! We are located at 2217 Mahoning Avenue in Youngstown, OH 44509 and you can call 330-792-4228 for any questions about Josephine and all the other cats and kittens who need their Furrever homes!! Thanks!! _DSC0001

Annie is a wonderful female Black and White cat who right now is residing with us until she finds an awesome home! She was born on 1/1/2013. Annie was brought in to West Side Cats? with all her kittens. Now all her kittens have homes! Annie needs a home now! Annie loves to be petted! She is pretty laid back so I can see her loving children. She has no problem with the other cats. We are not sure about dogs? Stop by quickly as any cat as pretty as this could be scooped up and taken to her Furrever home soon!!! Thanks so much for looking! Please come visit soon! We are open from 2 to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday._DSC0050



Whitey – was Adopted!

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

Whitey went over to PetSmart in Niles and was adopted!!!! Way to go Whitey!!!!!! At West Side Cats we had a new arrival the other day. A wonderful person brought in Whitey who had been living in the woods since spring when her owner moved and left her to fend for herself. Whitey is almost 7 years old and is a Special Needs cat and would make a wonderful Senior Companion! She came into the shelter on 11/5/2015 thankfully so she could be warm and eat and sleep in a safe environment. Whitey loves to sit on your lap and be cuddled and petted. If she trusts you she will purr. We are not sure if she gets along with children or dogs. She seems to just mind her own business around the other cats and doesn’t go out of her way to bother any of them. She is a beautiful white feline! When I took her photos, she came right up to me purring away. I guess I made a new friend! Whitey is available for adoption anytime Tuesday through Saturday from 2 to 6 p.m. We are located at 2217 Mahoning Avenue in Youngstown, OH 44509. Or call 330-792-4228 with any questions. Whitey will be your own little sweetheart! She deserves a great new Furrever home!_DSC0001

_DSC0026This is Jayne! She was born on 7/1/2015. Someone found her and brought her in to the shelter. She is just so cute!!! We are not sure if she gets along with children and dogs but she gets along very well with cats! Jayne is like any other kitten – non-stop until they drop! She is a beautiful sleek black kitten who is a bundle of energy! You will absolutely fall in love with her! She was staying with the rest of the crew at West Side Cats? but the other night she saw Yoda and Bobo Feit packing their carriers so she wanted to go along. I helped her pack and away she went to PetSmart in Boardman. If someone hasn’t already snatched her up you can see her there. Jayne would love a family furrever!!!!

_DSC0043Meet our sleek and beautiful Asia here at West Side Cats! Asia turned 5 on 2/25/15 and she is certainly a wonderful girl! She is a little on the timid side. Just approach her slowly and offer to let her sniff your hand and then pet her. Asia is just fine all by herself (she does get along with the other cats) but we prefer her to go to a home with no other pets in the home. Not sure how she does with children. Asia has been at the shelter for awhile now and really, really wants her Furrever home! Can you accommodate her with her request? You won’t regret it! Asia has plenty of love to give to that someone special! Stop by West Side Cats Tuesday through Saturday from 2 to 6 P.M. and come pet Asia! She really deserves her Furrever home soon! Asia sends her love, purrs and kisses!

Who doesn’t like Tortie’s? At West Side Cats we have a few! This beautiful Tortie calls herself Marble (or as I call her – Ms. Marble)! Marble is a sweetheart from the word go! She is so gentle and peaceful, she never bothers anyone. She is full of sweetness and loves children and gets along well with other cats. We are not sure about dogs but it wouldn’t surprise me that she loves them also. Marble just does her own thing. Ms. Marble is just over 5 years young. When she was brought into WSC and taken to the vet Dr. Allen, she was found to have 3 BB’s in her. These were all removed by the wonderful Dr. Allen who does so much for our cats and kittens! Thank you sir! Ms. Marble was brought in with 3 kittens who have long found Furrever homes. Won’t you make it 4 out of 4 and give Ms. Marble a wonderful Furrever home where she stays inside and gets spoiled by you? Please stop by 2217 Mahoning Avenue soon any Tuesday through Saturday from 2 to 6 P.M. and meet the wonderful and beautiful Ms. Marble!!!! Both of you would be so rewarded!!! Marble says “Love You”!_DSC0054

Butterscoth1Come introduce yourself to Butterscotch who hangs out with all her friends upstairs at West Side Cats! She turned 4 on April 3, 2015 so she is still young. She is very scared though. Butterscotch will take some patience and time for her to come around. Seems to me there has been some neglect for her in her background. Butterscotch is very active and doesn’t bother the other cats. Not sure how she is around dogs and children though.

Come and visit our wonderful Felines who hang out upstairs and downstairs at West Side Cats! We are open Tuesday through Saturday from 2 P.M. until 6 P.M. Since November is adopt a Senior Cat Month you will find quite a few older cats upstairs that need a Furrever Home! Won’t you be the one who helps us out? Love, Butterscotch!!!!!

Lilac (November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month)

Wednesday, November 4th, 2015

At West Side Cats we have some cats upstairs and some cats and kittens downstairs. Some people who visit never make it to the upstairs due to all that cuteness downstairs.

In honor of Adopt a Senior Pet Month I am going to be putting up photos of some of our upstairs older cats! This one is beautiful Lilac! Lilac was found on a Sub Zero night tied to a gate at a condo community. Because of her experience she is timid. But time and patience working with her I believe will bring out the awesome personality that lies beneath!

Lilac is on the quiet side and doesn’t bother anyone. She is considered a Special Needs Cat because of her trauma. She is a beautiful Buff colored short haired cat. We figure her birthday is around 1/1/2009 so she is almost 7. She is very agile and runs around and gets her exercise. She would make a wonderful Senior Companion so she needs a home without other cats, dogs, or children.

Please come visit Lilac and all her friends upstairs at West Side Cats. You can go downstairs after you check out our adult “clowder” of cats!!!! Thanks from Lilac and all her friends both upstairs and downstairs!

We are open Tuesday – Saturday from 2 to 6 P.M. and we are located at 2217 Mahoning Avenue in Youngstown, OH 44509. Please call 330-792-4228 with any questions. Many Thanks!!!


Faith & Gracie were Adopted!!!!

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

Faith and Gracie are at West Side Cats. Faith and Gracie must stay together due to their special needs. Faith and Gracie were born on 3/3/15 so they still have plenty of growing to do! They are a little timid because of their diminished sight, so they want you to greet them slowly and calmly. Faith and Gracie are Special Needs Kitties because of their sight problems.. But that doesn’t keep them from doing what they want to do! They need some special loving care to come out of their shells. Please stop over to West Side Cats to see Faith and Gracie!! They are the cute little gray kittens! We hope you both get an awesome Furrever home together!!!


Spotty Marie

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015


_DSC0041Meet the one and only Spotty Marie! She is just over a year old being born on 9/16/14. She was rescued by a special person but that person was unable to have Spotty Marie stay in their household so they left her in our care. They knew she would be well taken care of. Spotty Marie is a special needs cat. Spotty Marie needs an extra special home where she can stay inside and be well taken care of. She is well behaved but a little on the timid side. Can you please give Spotty Marie a special place in your heart and home? You both would be well rewarded! You can meet Spotty Marie at West Side Cats located at 2217 Mahoning Drive in Youngstown, OH 44509 or call 330-792-4228. Thank you from the bottoms of our hearts!
