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

BORING!!!

Boring

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.

Harrison: The Love Bug   1 comment

Name: Harrison
Age: 3 years
Sex: Male
Breed: Domestic Short Hair

Harrison epitomizes the phrase “love bug”. The moment he arrived at the shelter, he made himself right at home. Within minutes he was searching out a good lap to take a good snooze on, belly-up nonetheless! If Harrison is this trusting, laid back, and loving at the shelter, I can only imagine how awesome he would be in a house of his own. If I didn’t already have 4 of my own (4 is the house limit), I would definitely be bringing this big bundle of love home.

Ellis Carver: In the eyes of insanity   4 comments

Name: Ellis Carver
Age: 1 year
Sex: Female
Breed: Domestic Short Hair

Have you ever met a cat (or human for that matter) that just has that look in their eyes? You know the look I mean… One of total insanity…

Ellis Carver has that look in her eyes and the personality to back it up. She can be totally wild, tearing around the room and smacking other cats in the face.  Then a few minutes later she is  a complete sweetheart, purring and licking your fingers. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Who is that sexy cat?   Leave a comment

Name: Lima
Age: 2 Years
Sex: Female
Breed: Siamese

When most cats come into the shelter, the abundance of windows with their own kitty reflections staring back at them doesn’t seem to phase them a bit. Then there are the few, like little Lima here, who are totally engrossed by the cat staring back at them. Maybe it’s because Lima just likes looking at her own loveliness. I mean with eyes like hers, who wouldn’t?

Kitten Friday! Would you make a good kitten foster parent?   2 comments

Names: TBD
Ages: 6 Weeks
Sexes: 2 males, 1 female
Breed: Ragdoll and Domestic Long Hair Mix

Considering adopting kittens but not sure if they are for you? Maybe you should consider becoming a kitten foster parent!

For kitten Friday this week, I went to the home of Amy, a PAWS Chicago kitten foster mom. Her latest fosters are too cute for words. These little balls of puff were semi-feral when she got them a few weeks ago, but now they are little love bug thanks to Amy’s great work. We need more fosters who are as awesome as Amy!

… but I think that he has been reincarnated as a cat. I mean, how else could Nilla have learned that lip action?
