Marble is still waiting for her Furever home!

Friday, May 29th, 2015

Marble 4


Marble is a wonderful and sweet female Tortie! She was a stray and when we brought her to the vet she was found to have 3 bb’s in her so the Dr. removed them. She was also brought in with 3 kittens but she is the only one still at the West Side Cats shelter. Her birthdate is 4/1/2010 so Marble has many, many years of kisses, cuddling and purring for you! She really is a very quiet sweetheart and I know that you will just love her! Come visit Marble upstairs at West Side Cats Tuesday – Saturday 2 to 6 p.m. and starting June 1st the hours will be 3 to 7 p.m. Marble says “Thank you!”

Veronica – silly and beautiful!

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

Here is our comical and beautiful Veronica at West Side Cats?! I got the shot of her laying down and a close up but I guess I disturbed her sleep and she started yawning! She is a wonderful girl – a Dilute Tortie who was abandoned at Small World Rescue with 6 kittens but she had no milk! She of course has since been fixed and has all her shots. Veronica is so laid back in our upstairs room that I think people just miss her. If you are interested in Veronica, please feel free to come see her here Tuesday – Saturday from 2 – 6 p.m. and starting June 1st the hours will be 3 – 7 p.m. Thanks! Hugs and Kisses from Veronica!

Bridget would like her own window seat in your house!

Thursday, May 21st, 2015

Bridget 5

Bridget 4

I would like you to meet Bridget. She is a Brown Tabby cat who was a stray before she came to stay with us here at West Side Cats?. Bridget needs to be an only cat because she thinks she is Queen Bridget! We won’t tell her that she’s not! Bridget loves to be petted and loved. She would make a great companion with no other cats around the house. As you can see, she loves her window seat! Do you have a window seat you could share with Bridget? Bridget says “See you soon”! “Please come pick me”!

Zoey the stair climber!

Thursday, May 21st, 2015


Zoey 1

Zoey loves the stairs at West Side Cats?! She is a dilute Tortie who loves to be held and petted but she does not want other cats around. She does tolerate the cats that co-exist with her world but she would rather be the center of attention in a home of her own! Her birthday is 1/1/11 so she still has a lot of love to give someone. Won’t you please consider Zoey to give you love and you give her love? She is wonderful! Someone is really missing out without Zoey in their life!

Emiri has come a long way in the past few months! She used to stay up high on the shelves when people came into her area (even the volunteers), but now she comes down and loves to be petted and loved! She has learned that we are not going to hurt her. Emiri is still a little shy with strangers but is coming around nicely! It is so nice to be able to pet her!! Her birthdate is 4/1/13 so she is just over 2 years old. She has the greatest markings! She is one of a kind sweetheart! Please come visit Emiri soon as I know someone will snatch her up! Emiri is at West Side Cats? but really wants her own person to love!

Asia is our most laid back cat!

Wednesday, May 20th, 2015


Asia 1

Asia is one of our most laid back cats!!! She just loves to hang out in her bed at West Side Cats?! She was born on 2/25/2010 so she just recently turned five. Asia has so much love to give someone! Are you that special someone? You can come see Asia anytime from 2 – 6 P.M. Tuesday through Saturday here at West Side Cats. We are located at 2217 Mahoning Avenue in Youngstown, Ohio. Please come check us out and see for yourself! This fantastic group of volunteers does such an amazing job at this Adoption and Rescue No-Kill Shelter! Thank you for everything that you do!

Our Little Maya!

Thursday, May 14th, 2015


Maya 2

This is Maya at West Side Cats?! She can act like a little kitty or a grown cat – it just depends what she feels like doing. She was born on 5/28/2013 so she is still a little kid. Maya is a Tortie with 4 white paws. As you can see from the one photo, she loves playing in the big tree! Maya has a personality where you never know what she is thinking. One minute she is sleeping, another minute she is looking for someone to play with (or pick on). But all in all Maya is a great friend. She loves for you to give her attention and acknowledge her wonderfulness! She would be a great only cat. Not sure how she does with little children or dogs? Please come see Maya for yourself – she is awesome!!

Dixie says Hello again!

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

Dixie here again at West Side Cats still waiting patiently for someone to come and adopt me! You probably don’t remember me because I am in the upstairs room and I hang back because I can be shy. But once I find a friend I love all the attention that you can give me. Dixie is a wonderful, beautiful female Grey Shorthaired cat. Her birthdate is 9/30/2012 so she is still pretty young. Please come visit Dixie at the shelter! We are open from 2 – 6 p.m. Tuesday – Saturday. Dixie says “See you soon”!

Jamie Lee

Jamie Lee 2

Jamie Lee says hi from West Side Cats?! She is a very sweet and shy Tortie. She is a special needs cat who would need a very quiet home with no children or dogs. She does get along with other cats. Jamie Lee has a slight head tilt from an old ear infection. She gets around wherever she wants to go! When she gets to know you she loves to be petted and fawned over! She is very laid back and gentle. If you would consider Jamie Lee as your furever kitty – please come and visit her. Words are not enough to describe Jamie Lee! She is awesome! We are open from 2 – 6 p.m. Tuesday – Saturday. Everyone here at the shelter wants Jamie Lee to get her own home soon! You will not be disappointed!!! Thanks!

Chelsea is very sad here at West Side Cats. She is a precious shy little girl who really needs a Furever home soon! She is a gray tabby who is very affectionate! She loves attention but is shy about coming to you to get it. Her birthdate is 9/20/13 so she has a lot of years of love to give! Come in to see Chelsea soon! Please be her family! Love & Hugs & Kisses & Purrs from Chelsea!
