Cassie, Rommie Pollux and Castor! Irresistible Kittens!! Could you help them out with their vetting needs? Not yet available for adoption – but soon!

Thursday, July 7th, 2016

Here at West Side Cats we have some of the cutest kittens you have ever seen! (No favoritism here). Here are Cassie who is a female Calico with some black on her heard, Rommie is a female Calico with all three colors on her head, Pollux has less yellow on his head who is a male Calico and last but not least Castor who is a male Calico has no black on his head. These kittens were brought in on 7/2/16 by a good Samaritan. They will need to be fixed and get their rabies shots and then they will be available for adoption in a couple of weeks. Would you like to “Sponsor one of these Kittens”? Are you interested in adopting them? We would appreciate any help with their vet bills if you could do anything possible it would be so appreciated! Every life we save is another life given to one of God’s creatures! Thank you!

Lisa (Yes Bart’s Sister)! Lisa has been adopted!!!

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

As promised, here is Lisa, Bart’s Sister! She was also born on 2/15/16 and is a cute little White with Orange Kitten! We would like to see Bart and Lisa adopted together if at all possible! They run and play together and are so well bonded! Come in and meet with Lisa (and Bart). I know you can’t resist!

Baby Bart (and yes he does have a sister named Lisa who I will post next)! Bart has been adopted!!!!!

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

Cuteness overload! Here is Bart! (Yes, he has a sister Lisa who looks almost like him which I will be posting next), Bart was born on 2/15/16 and as you can see he is a most handsome Orange/White Kitty! Bart (and Lisa) came in on 4/28/16. Bart definitely gets along with other cats – but he is rambunctious as a kitten! He loves kids and I understand he does NOT like dogs! His owner dropped off Bart (and Lisa) because they just had an overabundance of cats and kittens. So hence the reason why Bart (and Lisa) are at the shelter. If you would like to adopt Bart (by himself or with his sister Lisa), please stop by WSC any Tuesday through Saturday from 2 to 6 P.M. We are located at 2217 Mahoning Avenue in Youngstown, OH 44509. Love and kisses and hugs and purrs from Bart (and Lisa)!Bart 1

Benny (Benny and his sister Betsy have to be adopted together). They are currently at PetSmart in Niles. They have been adopted!!!!

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

UPDATE: Benny and his sister Betsy along with Bertie and Barbie are now at PetSmart in Niles.

Benny came in with his brother and two sisters. They were all left by a dumpster and as you can imagine they were very frightened! Well Benny being a kitten has come a long way! Benny was born on 11/12/15 so he is just a youngster! He is a handsome Orange kitten with an awesome personality! He has to be adopted though with his sister Betsy. The four kittens have started off in this world at a disadvantage so we need the two to be with each other and the other two are staying together for security and comfort reasons. All 4 of them are starting to forget about what they have been through at such a young age. Please stop by West Side Cats and visit with Benny and Betsy (and Barbie and Bertie). These kittens will keep you amused believe me! We are open Tuesday through Saturday from 2:00 P.M. until 6:00 P.M. Benny 1


Betsy (and her brother Benny MUST be adopted together! They are currently at PetSmart in Niles. They have been adopted!!!!!

Sunday, March 20th, 2016

UPDATE: Benny and his sister Betsy along with Bertie and Barbie are now at PetSmart in Niles!

Here is Betsy at West Side Cat! She was also left by a dumpster with her sister and two brothers! They were all born on 11/12/15. Betsy is a beautiful Tortie who is very frightened and MUST be adopted along with her brother Benny. We are keeping the two together and also having the other siblings stay together for their adoption. These kittens were given a terrible start to life and they are very scared but are just starting to come around. You must have patience and understanding. With each other they will feel safe and more secure in their new home(s). Here is Betsy and as you can see she is just peeking her head out so I photographed her in that pose. She was hard to get.

Barbie and Bertie – they MUST stay together! They are currently at PetSmart in Niles. The have been adopted!!!!!!!

Saturday, March 19th, 2016

UPDATE: Benny and his sister Betsy along with Bertie and Barbie are now at PetSmart in Niles.

I would love to introduce Barbie! No – not that Barbie! Our Barbie is a beautiful female Tortie who was born on 11/12/15 and then left by a dumpster along with 3 other kittens! Barbie is very playful as you can imagine! She has a great personality! If you would like to make Barbie a member of your family – you must take her brother Bertie also. They MUST stay together. They have already been mistreated in this world and they feel safer and happier staying together! Bertie is a handsome male Black/White kitten who is also wonderful! They make a great comedy team! They will keep you amused for hours with their antics! I hope you can find space in your heart and your home for these two wonderful kitties! They really deserve a chance since they have been through so much already! Thank you! Barbie and Bertie!!! They hope to see you soon!

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!!!


Glen, Michonne and Noah! Update: Glen and Noah have been adopted!!!! Michonne has been adopted!!!!!!
