Orange Julius really wants to meet you!

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

Orange Julius still here at West Side Cats waiting for my Furever Family! Won’t you come visit me and see what an awesome cat I am? I was abandoned at the doorstep out front and luckily found by one of the wonderful volunteers! They brought me in so I can eat, sleep and play here in this house. I’m not out wandering the streets where terrible things can happen! My birthdate is 4/27/14 so I am still a very young male. Of course I have been fixed (ouch!) and had my shots. Please come see me (and all my friends) Tuesday – Saturday – 2 to 6 P.M. and starting June 1st we will be open from 3 to 7 P.M. on those days. Hope I see you soon!!!! Love,


Orange Julius

Babe!! Babe is a Black Medium Length Haired Male Cat born on 7/14/2014. He and 5 other siblings were abandoned at the Ford Nature Center in Mill Creek Park!

Herb 1

Herb has to be the most affectionate kitty here at West Side Cats?! He loves to sit in your lap and give you hugs and kisses! He will even fall at your feet to be petted! He has such a great personality! Herb’s date of birth is 4/19/14 – a very young man. Herb had a polyp removed from his right ear. We are waiting to make sure everything is fine before he will be available for adoption. Herb says “Thanks for looking at me”!

Sparkles 2

Sparkles 1

Sparkles was found without his mother so a wonderful family brought him in to us to get the proper care that he would need. He is approximately 5 weeks old so will not be available for adoption for a little while. He is one of the cutest little guys that I have seen! He loves to be cuddled and talked to. He could use a foster family for awhile if you have the time for Sparkles.

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!!!!!

Update on Dash-UR!

Dash-UR! is a Male White with Black Spots Kitty. He has that unique moustache under his nose which is so cute! His birthdate is 8/2/2013. His owner moved and just left him behind so Dash-UR! is STILL looking for a new home! Why someone would just move and leave this wonderful guy to fend for himself is beyond me! He is so loving and mellow! Please come visit Dash at the West Side Cats soon! You will fall in love with him and can visit all his friends!

Sandy 2

Sandy says Hi from West Side Cats! As you can see Sandy is a male black long haired kitty who was found wandering around a neighborhood all alone. A wonderful person brought him in and most likely saved his life! Sandy’s birthdate is 1/1/12. He is very loving and loves to be petted! Every time I enter the room he is in, he runs right to me and is a camera hound! Sandy would love and deserves a forever home! Give us a call or stop by and visit soon as I’m sure Sandy will be scooped up in no time!

Sonny is nine years old, and last week his owners moved away and left him locked up in the apartment to fend for himself.

A bag of cat food was left behind, and Sonny managed to tear it open and avoid going hungry. Water was becoming a bit problematic, but luckily the landlady went into the apartment before things got urgent. She brought him to West Side Cats. After we did his healthcare he was taken to PetSmart in Niles.

He’s a gorgeous longhaired boy. Come meet him at PetSmart from 9-11am or 6-8pm when our volunteer is there.

Update on Leonard!!!

Friday, April 24th, 2015




Update on Leonard at West Side Cats! If you remember Leonard, he was put out into a trash pile when his family decided to move and just discard him! Luckily he was saved from all that meanness, but his face was so messed up when he first came in. He is really coming along appearance wise but he is still terribly shaken up and extremely timid and afraid. If you do put your hand in his cage though, he will rub up against you and purr so Leonard is very loving despite what happened to him. Leonard needs a very quiet environment with no other pets or children. He is going to need someone who will work with him and be extremely patient with him. He is a very special guy! He was born on 7/1/14 so he is still pretty young. As you can see from the photos below – the after and before. He has come so far but has a long recovery emotionally ahead. If you live alone or with another adult and have some love and patience to spare – please come and see Leonard for yourself! He needs that someone special! Thanks! Pat
