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

I’m also putting up Junior’s photos again! He is an awesome cat! Brown and White Tabby – DSH born 1/7/2010. He was the kitty abandoned with his Baby Daddy “Poppy” at a hotel in Boardman. How can someone be so mean? Junior is very loving and all he wants in life is to eat, sleep and have someone of his own to love! Please come visit Junior at the West Side Cats to see for yourself!!!!

Tom has taken over the top of the dryer from Chevy since Chevy doesn’t think it is tall enough now! Tom is a male grey tabby DSH and he is declawed in front. He will make a wonderful Senior Companion! His owner moved and decided not to take the cats. Tom’s DOB is 1/1/2001. He is super lovable! He has certainly found a place in our hearts here at West Side Cats?!Tom

Midnight wandered into his neighbors house after his owner put him out. How despicable is that! Midnight is such a good cat! He is a DSH Black kitty and his birthdate is 12/1/2012. He looks kind of sad in these photos but he seems happy at the shelter. I really hope that someone will come in and take him to a wonderful furever home! He deserves that so much! He is very lovable and loves to be petted! Come take a chance on Midnight! Please!

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!

Scruffy was found as a stray, fending for himself and extremely matted. Matting can be quite painful for a kitty so we asked our vet to give him a “lion” cut. Eventually he will be a handsome long haired guy again.

Scruffy is a very good-natured boy born in 2011. He’s at PetSmart in Niles just waiting for someone to come in and take him to his forever home. Our volunteer is there from about 9:00-11:00 a.m. and from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the evenings.

Junior can be visited at West Side Cats?! Junior is a Male Tabby/White DSH Kitty. His birthdate is 1/7/2010. He was abandoned with his Baby Daddy “Pappy” at a hotel in Boardman. I will never understand how people can do this to their “family”? Well Junior needs a good home soon! He is very loving and likes to be petted. Feel free to stop by and visit with Junior and all his friends. I guarantee you won’t regret it! Junior2
