Ebay auction of Football Helmet to benefit WSC!

November 12th, 2014

This amazing helmet was donated to West Side Cats by Riddell Sports, then Don Cockroft was nice enough to ask Cleveland Browns players to autograph it for us.  As if the helmet wasn’t already completely awesome, remember that all proceeds from this auction benefit West Side Cats.

Please share this auction around and remember that special Browns fan this holiday season!

R’s Update: Unfortunately not the best of news

September 4th, 2014

Crunchies 2 Crunchies 3Crunchies 1

We are very worried here about our little Ralphie.  Despite being on an antibiotic he has developed pneumonia.  We are keeping him warm and fed and ask that you keep him in your prayers.  Ronnie’s (tortie) feet are bothering her a lot making her resist our efforts to get her to come out and play.  Rickie (black) seems to be having foot issues too but is walking better than his sister.  Let’s pray that the new antibiotic knocks out the pneumonia and restores Ralphie to his usual smiling self and that all continue to recover.

We were going to be sent to the rainbow bridge before our time just because we have injuries.  It’s a good thing that West Side Cats stepped in or we would be toast.  Kimm knows more about it than Edie, who is putting us on the interwebs, so check our facebook page where Kimm will be telling you the whole story about us tomorrow.

We are all done getting big enough and are ready to get fixed so that we can be adopted.  We are as cute as can be and just need some generous people to help with the cost of our surgeries.  If you can help, even a little, click on the paypal button.  We can hardly wait to go home and would be so grateful if you could help us!
