Why is it that pictures of animals with their tongues hanging out are so darn cute? I have to say, tongue shots tend to be some of my favorite photos because they have so much personality. Without further ado, here are some great tongue shots to brighten your day:

Firecat   Leave a comment

Name: Firecat
Age: 9 years
Sex: Male
Breed: Domestic Long Hair

When you look into Firecat’s eyes, they exude wisdom, like an old soul. Kind, gentle, and intuitive far beyond his 9 years, Firecat is a shelter favorite. Oh, and he has the softest, most gorgeous burnt orange fur, similar to a mane. If you need a sympathetic ear to tell your deepest secrets, Firecat is the cat for you. All he will ask for in return is a warm lap and a scratch behind the ears.

Little miss Kat Von D definitely displays the behaviors of your typical bengal… She is a total lover, vocal, and LOVES playtime. She got so excited about the camera that she immediately wanted to play “peek-a-boo” with it!

Ages: 12 years, 6 months, & 1 year

Happy Friday the 13th! Let’s change the superstitions about our friend le chat noir…  Instead, today we will celebrate the beauty of the black cat.

Young or old, long hair or short, a black cat is the perfect addition to any household. If you are thinking about adopting a cat in the near future, consider a black cat. They may not be as flashy as some of the other cats there, but they are classic, timeless, and you know what they say: black goes with everything!

To sleep, perchance to dream-   1 comment

Name: ? Possibly Firefly, but I forgot to write it down and he got adopted so quickly, that by the time I got back to check, he was gone!
Age: 1 year
Sex: Male
Breed: Domestic Medium Hair

Talk about the perfect place to take a “cat” nap. What do you think this little guy is dreaming about?

My guess is a home of his own with cool humans to feed him and love him. Well, dreams do come true because he got his wish only a few days after he arrived at PAWS Chicago!

The Saga of a Yawn   Leave a comment

Name: Honey Bee
Age: 3 years
Sex: Female
Breed: Domestic Short Hair

This is the tale of a yawn. Not just any yawn, but a really big, super cute cat yawn. The story begins with an investigation:

Sniff, Sniff…

Sniff, Sniff



Wow, really boring!

really boring

What a big yawn… That yawn was so big that I tired myself out.

so boring that I want to sleep

Totally exhausted from that yawn. I can’t keep my head up… Time to sleep.


Sorry for disappearing   Leave a comment

to all my readers–

I want to offer my apologies for going 2 weeks without updating my blog. There was a tragic death in my family that not even pictures of cats could help. Time heals all, though, as they say and the pictures of beautiful felines are once again making the day brighter. Be on the look-out for awesome pictures of cute shelter felines later today!
