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!

Herb 1

Herb is not ready for prime time yet but I wanted to introduce you to him. 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”!

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.

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.

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!
