Marble is still waiting for her Furever home!

May 29th, 2015

Marble 4


Marble is a wonderful and sweet female Tortie! She was a stray and when we brought her to the vet she was found to have 3 bb’s in her so the Dr. removed them. She was also brought in with 3 kittens but she is the only one still at the West Side Cats shelter. Her birthdate is 4/1/2010 so Marble has many, many years of kisses, cuddling and purring for you! She really is a very quiet sweetheart and I know that you will just love her! Come visit Marble upstairs at West Side Cats Tuesday – Saturday 2 to 6 p.m. and starting June 1st the hours will be 3 to 7 p.m. Marble says “Thank you!”

Cuteness Season is in full swing!

Big enough food bowls?

May 27th, 2015

Do you think we have big enough food bowls for our kitties? Marble (left) Darryl (back) and Jo (right) don’t seem to think so here at West Side Cats! Our wonderful volunteers fill these and many more bowls and water bowls and wet food bowls each and every day here at our No-Kill Adoption and Rescue Shelter, along with all the cleaning they do! We couldn’t do it without them! Thank you to each and every one for what you do! Love you guys! Pat.

Veronica – silly and beautiful!

May 27th, 2015

Here is our comical and beautiful Veronica at West Side Cats?! I got the shot of her laying down and a close up but I guess I disturbed her sleep and she started yawning! She is a wonderful girl – a Dilute Tortie who was abandoned at Small World Rescue with 6 kittens but she had no milk! She of course has since been fixed and has all her shots. Veronica is so laid back in our upstairs room that I think people just miss her. If you are interested in Veronica, please feel free to come see her here Tuesday – Saturday from 2 – 6 p.m. and starting June 1st the hours will be 3 – 7 p.m. Thanks! Hugs and Kisses from Veronica!

Orange Julius really wants to meet you!

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,

Say hi to Sherman!

May 26th, 2015

Say hi to Sherman! Sherman was dropped off in a suitcase the other day at West Side Cats! It was pretty chilly out that day! Can you imagine how scared he must have been? One of the volunteers came in that morning and found the suitcase along with other items, brought everything inside, opened it up and out jumped Sherman! Imagine the surprise for both of them!

I was petting Sherman yesterday and he is soooooooo loving!! He was purring away and rubbing my hand!! After what he has been through, he is still so loving!! Sherman is a Black/White Male. He had to have been someone’s loved pet – he even had a store bought flea collar on him! I couldn’t imagine giving him up for anything in the world!

Come see Sherman! He definitely needs a great Furever home! He deserves it! Sherman says “Thank You”!
