Cassie, Rommie Pollux and Castor! Irresistible Kittens!! Could you help them out with their vetting needs? Not yet available for adoption – but soon!

July 7th, 2016

Here at West Side Cats we have some of the cutest kittens you have ever seen! (No favoritism here). Here are Cassie who is a female Calico with some black on her heard, Rommie is a female Calico with all three colors on her head, Pollux has less yellow on his head who is a male Calico and last but not least Castor who is a male Calico has no black on his head. These kittens were brought in on 7/2/16 by a good Samaritan. They will need to be fixed and get their rabies shots and then they will be available for adoption in a couple of weeks. Would you like to “Sponsor one of these Kittens”? Are you interested in adopting them? We would appreciate any help with their vet bills if you could do anything possible it would be so appreciated! Every life we save is another life given to one of God’s creatures! Thank you!

Leo (The West Side Cats Lion)!

July 7th, 2016

Have you ever seen a Lion at West Side Cats? Well I had to share an office chair with one yesterday! Well his name is Leo anyway and I believe he thinks he is a Lion! Leo is such a great cat! Leo was born on 8/16/01 and he is a handsome brown tabby with medium length hair. Leo is considered a Special Needs cat because he is a 15 year old but believe me he doesn’t act it! He runs and jumps and plays just like a one year old! Leo came into the shelter on 6/21/16. He gets along with the other cats, dogs and he loves children. He is a very gentle cat! If you would like to adopt Leo (the Lion) please stop by and visit us! He will probably be in Kimm’s office chair in the front office hanging out!

Our Little Clara (Bow)

July 7th, 2016

Doesn’t this cat remind you of Clara Bow? For those of you too young to know she was a famous actress back before they had talking movies. Here is our Clara in all her glory! Clara is a beautiful Orange Tabby. She was born on 2/26/15 so she is approximately 1 1/2 years old. She came into the shelter on May 14th of this year. We have discovered she does NOT like other cats or dogs! She is very friendly and absolutely LOVES people! So if you are a pet less house you just might want to come in and let Clara see if you are a match for you! Clara

Let me sing you a “Melody”! Melody was adopted!!!!

June 26th, 2016

Well I’ve been told that I can sing? So right now I will play you a melody! Melody the cat that is! Melody was found on the street in Youngstown. She looked like she was nursing kittens when she came into the shelter. Melody does NOT like CATS or DOGS! She does however get along with children! Melody is a sweet girl and she loves to cuddle! Melody is a beautiful Calico who is approximately 2 1/2 years old. She was born on 1/1/2014. Please stop by and visit Melody and bring your kid(s) with you! You will see how she loves them! Your household would have to be cat and dog free though – extremely important for this adoption to work. Melody says “If you bring me to my Furrever home, I will play a melody for you all the time”! Hear her PURR!!!!!

Oreo (Cat – not cookie)! Up for adoption –

June 25th, 2016

If you get hungry for a cookie, please come to West Side Cats and check out the Oreo! Oreo is a sweet, loving and friendly black female cat. She is roughly 1 1/2 years young! She did come in with Alopecia most likely because of her over grooming herself. That can be due to stress. Her hair is coming back in so that is good. Oreo does NOT like other cats. She stays to herself. She is very good with kids and loves them! We don’t know how she does with dogs though? Stop by and see her! We are open 3 to 7 P.M. Tuesday – Saturday. Thanks!

(Silly) Joan!

June 22nd, 2016

Joan is a very silly cat as you can see! Joan turned 1 on May 1, 2016. She is a wonderful Brown Tabby! She gets along very well with other cats. We are not sure about dogs or children but she is good natured so I would have to say older children are okay. Please come see silly Joan at the shelter! She would love to have a family that she can be silly with! Love Joan!

(Siesta) Sherman!

June 22nd, 2016

Look who I caught trying to take a Siesta the other day! It’s our Sherman! Sherman is quite the guy! He turned 5 on January 1, 2016. He is a handsome Black and White Cat. He was dumped in the shelter in a suitcase! Who would do that???? Sherman was adopted out in 2015 but after some time went by he was returned in 2016 because he didn’t get along with the owners cat! Sherman HAS to be the only cat in your home. He doesn’t like dogs either. I would say that Sherman would do best with an older couple who would like to have a fairly quiet life with you. Could you think that maybe Sherman has a future with you? He is waiting here at West Side Cats!
