Chloe – (November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month)

November 10th, 2015



Chloe is a really special girl! She turned 10 on 2/1/2005 so she really needs a very quiet home being the only pet. Chloe is so mild mannered and laid back. She doesn’t bother the other cats and kind of does her own thing. She is also very affectionate and loves to be made a fuss over. She came to us when her owner had to go to a nursing home and it broke the owner’s heart to have to give Chloe up! We reassured her that Chloe would be well taken care of and we will try and try to get Chloe another Furrever home that she so deserves. She has made the adjustment very well and I know that she would be able to do it again.

Can you find it in your heart to give Chloe a warm and wonderful home of her own? Chloe can melt your heart with her goodness! Please come visit with Chloe and I just know you will want to take her home with you! West Side Cats is located at 2217 Mahoning Avenue, Youngstown, OH 44509. Or call 330-792-4228. Chloe will be standing by waiting for your arrival! Chloe says Thank You to all of you out there! Let’s give Chloe an awesome Furrever home for the Holidays! I can see her with a Santa hat on next to your Christmas tree!

Daryl – King of the World!

November 9th, 2015

For all the world to see: Your Majesty, Your Royal Highness – King Daryl!!! Daryl is considered a Special Needs cat because he is very nervous and he has been given to us as a feral cat. He was being fed outside by a wonderful person who then brought him in when the weather turned colder. So he has had interaction with people. It would take a very special person(s) to work with Daryl. You must have a lot of patience and time and never allow him to be outside again. Daryl just had a birthday on 11/6 and he turned 2. Daryl has a lot of years to live out. I would hate to see him never get a home. He is a beautiful boy! He has never been aggressive with me, just nervous and timid. As you can see he is a beautiful orange cat! He is a big boy! I love Daryl! He can be visited at West Side Cats? any Tuesday through Saturday from 2 P.M. to 6 P.M. Please come introduce yourself to Daryl and give him a chance at a wonderful life at your house! Daryl would be worth every moment and thanks you for just reading this. Daryl thinks he is just misunderstood. He comes down when it is time to eat and interacts with the volunteers and the other cats. I would not recommend having a dog with him though just because we don’t know his background. I think he would like a quiet home so he can learn to trust again. Love Daryl. _DSC0035


Marguerita was adopted!!!!

November 8th, 2015




Marisol was adopted!!!!!!!

November 7th, 2015

Back at the West Side Cats a very pretty and delightful Marisol wants to say hello! She asks if you might want to give her a home? She is about 1 1/2 years young (1/1/2014) with a wonderful personality. She fits into the mix here at West Side but really doesn’t want to spend the rest of her life with us. I don’t blame her! She gets along very well with the other cats. I would have to say that dogs and children are fine with her too. She is on the quiet side but very loving and caring. She loves to be fawned over. Come and plead with Marisol to let you take her home with you. I just know that she will find the right person(s)! When you meet her you won’t be able to resist! We are open Tuesday – Saturday from 2 to 6 p.m. Come and see her and the rest of our gang! You might just get addicted to the place like I have!_DSC0017


Asia – has been adopted!!!!

November 7th, 2015


_DSC0043Meet our sleek and beautiful Asia here at West Side Cats! Asia turned 5 on 2/25/15 and she is certainly a wonderful girl! She is a little on the timid side. Just approach her slowly and offer to let her sniff your hand and then pet her. Asia is just fine all by herself (she does get along with the other cats) but we prefer her to go to a home with no other pets in the home. Not sure how she does with children. Asia has been at the shelter for awhile now and really, really wants her Furrever home! Can you accommodate her with her request? You won’t regret it! Asia has plenty of love to give to that someone special! Stop by West Side Cats Tuesday through Saturday from 2 to 6 P.M. and come pet Asia! She really deserves her Furrever home soon! Asia sends her love, purrs and kisses!

November 6th, 2015

Just some more “Hanging around West Side Cats” photos! It’s all in a days “volunteer” work! I love every single feline in the Shelter!!!!! Look who is waiting for his bath – Orange!!!! As soon as you get near the water he changes his mind! LOL!!!!


Marble was adopted!!!!!

November 6th, 2015

Who doesn’t like Tortie’s? At West Side Cats we have a few! This beautiful Tortie calls herself Marble (or as I call her – Ms. Marble)! Marble is a sweetheart from the word go! She is so gentle and peaceful, she never bothers anyone. She is full of sweetness and loves children and gets along well with other cats. We are not sure about dogs but it wouldn’t surprise me that she loves them also. Marble just does her own thing. Ms. Marble is just over 5 years young. When she was brought into WSC and taken to the vet Dr. Allen, she was found to have 3 BB’s in her. These were all removed by the wonderful Dr. Allen who does so much for our cats and kittens! Thank you sir! Ms. Marble was brought in with 3 kittens who have long found Furrever homes. Won’t you make it 4 out of 4 and give Ms. Marble a wonderful Furrever home where she stays inside and gets spoiled by you? Please stop by 2217 Mahoning Avenue soon any Tuesday through Saturday from 2 to 6 P.M. and meet the wonderful and beautiful Ms. Marble!!!! Both of you would be so rewarded!!! Marble says “Love You”!_DSC0054

Come visit and have some fun hanging around with _DSC0046these little people in fur coats! The volunteers are awesome too!_DSC0034

Lilac (November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month) – has been given her “Furrever” home!!!!!!!!

November 4th, 2015

At West Side Cats we have some cats upstairs and some cats and kittens downstairs. Some people who visit never make it to the upstairs due to all that cuteness downstairs.

In honor of Adopt a Senior Pet Month I am going to be putting up photos of some of our upstairs older cats! This one is beautiful Lilac! Lilac was found on a Sub Zero night tied to a gate at a condo community. Because of her experience she is timid. But time and patience working with her I believe will bring out the awesome personality that lies beneath!

Lilac is on the quiet side and doesn’t bother anyone. She is considered a Special Needs Cat because of her trauma. She is a beautiful Buff colored short haired cat. We figure her birthday is around 1/1/2009 so she is almost 7. She is very agile and runs around and gets her exercise. She would make a wonderful Senior Companion so she needs a home without other cats, dogs, or children.

Please come visit Lilac and all her friends upstairs at West Side Cats. You can go downstairs after you check out our adult “clowder” of cats!!!! Thanks from Lilac and all her friends both upstairs and downstairs!

We are open Tuesday – Saturday from 2 to 6 P.M. and we are located at 2217 Mahoning Avenue in Youngstown, OH 44509. Please call 330-792-4228 with any questions. Many Thanks!!!


Faith & Gracie were Adopted!!!!

November 3rd, 2015

Faith and Gracie are at West Side Cats. Faith and Gracie must stay together due to their special needs. Faith and Gracie were born on 3/3/15 so they still have plenty of growing to do! They are a little timid because of their diminished sight, so they want you to greet them slowly and calmly. Faith and Gracie are Special Needs Kitties because of their sight problems.. But that doesn’t keep them from doing what they want to do! They need some special loving care to come out of their shells. Please stop over to West Side Cats to see Faith and Gracie!! They are the cute little gray kittens! We hope you both get an awesome Furrever home together!!!
