Here at West Side Cats we have a frightened little cat that one of the volunteers named Mittens. (No it is not Mittens our mascot – she is fine). Mittens as you can see from these photos is frightened to death. She has been outside all her life and is wondering how in the world she got into this cage. We leave the cage open for her so she can get exercise and walk around the room she is in.
Mittens is a 10 month old Gray and White beautiful long haired cat. The volunteers are working with her. I have patted her a couple of times but she is really afraid. She needs much love and attention and her coat of fur could use a good brushing. She has not had her vetting yet so she is not quite available for adoption but she will be soon. I will keep you posted.
For the right adopter, Mittens will take a lot of work to come around. She should probably be the only pet in the house, at least for awhile. Older children would be ok but I think young ones would scare her too much. If you would like to come by and ask for Mittens (not to be confused with Mittens the mascot), please let us know and we will introduce her to you. I know with the right person she would be such a good friend to you.
Mittens has a lot of possibility underneath that scared face. If you have much patience and love please consider taking a chance on Mittens! We are open Tuesday – Saturday from 2 to 6 p.m. and we are located at 2217 Mahoning Avenue in Youngstown, OH.
Thank you from all of us at the shelter – both feline and human! We hope to see you soon!
