This very cute little feline is named Lexi or it was until was until our vet told us otherwise! Lex is not ready for adoption yet as you can see but I wanted to introduce you! Right now Lex is residing at the West Side Cats? Hotel (or so Lex thinks) and is enjoying it! Lex is extremely playful and extremely active! So cute!!!! Lex says: “Thanks for looking at my photos! I’ll be ready for adoption in awhile if you want me!”

Yesterday at West Side Cats? – guess who came in? Two little male kitties! So darn cute!! I named them Gizmo and Gremlin. Gremlin has more white on the side of his face and on the back of his head than Gizmo does. They are about 6 weeks old so they won’t be ready for adoption for a few more weeks. They are just so spunky and fun! I have the best volunteer position ever! How can you just not love these guys!!!!!

Kittens! Kittens! Kittens!

Ipsco is a Male DSH Black Cat with a little bit of white. There is nothing wrong with his eye – I woke him up from his nap and he was still half asleep! I needed to give him and all his friends canned food! I guess he didn’t mind since he got a full belly! Ipsco’s birthdate is 10/16/2014. He was living in a factory and being fed by the wonderful workers. They felt like Ipsco needed a family of his own though. Ipsco is so lovable and sweet! He would make such a great addition to your family! Please stop by to see him – you will be glad that you did!

I am Lucy!

I am Lucy!

When I came to the shelter I was living on someone’s porch.  They were feeding me but I didn’t like my situation very much.  Now I am at the West Side Cats shelter and would like you to bring me home!  Please come visit me.  I am a very special kitty!
