Meet Nala!

Meet Nala!

Nala
Domestic Short Hair (Black/Orange Tortoiseshell)
Female
3 months old
3 lbs. (and growing!)

Nala is my name. That’s right! I was named after a strong, loyal and absolutely gorgeous lioness.

And I’m going to grow up to be just like her.

Until then, I’m a typical kitten. I’m a happy, cute, funny, curious, smart and energetic purring machine that loves to cuddle. I also love to play—with people, with other cats, with toys, even by myself sometimes.

What I’d like though, is to be YOUR happy kitten! To be your cute and funny companion, cuddle buddy and playtime pal! In return, I will grow into the most loyal friend you’ve ever had! What do you think?  It’s a great idea, right?

And it’s easy to do too! Just send a quick email to adopt@pawscoadoptions.org and complete an online application here: https://pawsco.org/adoptions/catadoptionapplication/. And that’s all there is to it!

Meet Simba!

Meet Simba!

Simba
Domestic Medium Hair (Orange)
Male
3 months old
3 lbs. (and growing!)

You’ve seen the movie, “The Lion King,” right?  SPOILER ALERT: It is the greatest movie ever! It’s all about a super cute, super fun, and super smart lion cub that grows up to be a mighty king! A generous and loyal kind of king. The kind of king that everybody loves. And that lion cub’s name is Simba…same as me! And I can tell you right now, I’m going to grow up to be just like him.

I’ve already got the same pleasing personality, my lovely orange mane is filling in nicely, and I’ve been working on my roar! I’ve got it down to a solid purr already. And just like Simba, I’m curious, I like to play and I love making new friends.

The only thing I still need though, is my very own kingdom with my very own family to love and protect.

If you happen to know somebody—maybe it’s you—who needs a Simba in their lives, please have them send the following Lion Adoption Form https://pawsco.org/adoptions/catadoptionapplication/ via email to adopt@pawscoadoptions.org so we can get together as soon as possible.

Meet Winnie!

Meet Winnie!

Winnie
American Pit Bull Terrier mix
Female
2 years old
45 lbs.

Winnie here! People say I’m always smiling, and that is true! But who wouldn’t be smiling when they’re a PawsCo pup?! I’ve met the best people here at PawsCo, and they tell me that life is only getting better from here. If it’s possible, my smile’s gonna grow even wider when I find my forever family!

Let’s talk about things that make this girl smile!

  • Belly rubs? You bet!
  • Toys? The squeakier the better!
  • Walks? Love them as well as hikes and runs and any chance to be active!
  • Naps? Duh! I love to exercise, but I’ve got a couch potato side too.
  • Humans? Of course! (I can be a little shy when first meeting them, but that doesn’t last long!)
  • Dogs? Some pups make me a little nervous (especially the bigger ones!) but I probably wouldn’t mind an easy-going pal who can be patient with me as I get to know them! But would also do just great as the only pup in the house.
  • Squirrels? Pure evil. (I do my part my chasing them any chance I get!)

There’s just SO much to smile about these days, and I can’t wait to share my perma-grin with my forever family! And THEY will be smiling when they see what a good girl I am in the house! No accidents for this girl. I also love my crate and like to take naps there. Sure, I’m a youngin’ and still learning a few tricks of the trade (like not jumping up when I’m just so excited, and not to pull on the leash) but I’m a smart girl and am picking up on them quickly!  

I’m so excited to be a PawsCo pup and even more excited to meet my forever family! So let’s make that happen, shall we? Email my friends at adopt@pawscoadoptions.org and fill out an adoption application https://pawsco.org/adoptions/adoption-application/ on the PawsCo website today!

Meet Emmylou!

Meet Emmylou!

Emmylou
Domestic Short Hair Tabby
Female
2 years old
7 pounds

Well hey there! I’m Emmylou and I’m pleased as punch to make your acquaintance.

I’m a bit of a Southern belle. I pride myself on being sweet as spun sugar. Yes indeed! I like to take life at a leisurely pace and enjoy the newfound comforts of living indoors.

See, I was found malnourished and skinny while caring for eight kittens! I’m a nurturing soul and have been keepin’ an eye on them in the foster home and we’ve been learning just how plum wonderful it is to feel safe. Now my kittens are old enough to move on and find homes of their own, so I guess I need to start looking for my forever family. Good thing I warm up quickly to new friends and love to rub up on people and even mellow dogs. There’s no room for fussin’ and fightin’ in my honest opinion. I’d much rather we all just get along.

Now, I make cute chirping noises that bring a smile to the face of anyone who hears my adorable call. I’m trustworthy and can roam a home while the people are out and not get into any trouble. Truth be told, I’m just looking for a peaceful place to call my own.

Can you please offer me the hospitality I’d so happily return with love and affection? All you have to do is send an email to my friends at PawsCo or fill out an adoption application. Thank you kindly!

Meet Felix!

Meet Felix!

Felix
Domestic Short Hair
Male
8 months old
7 lbs.

Felix the Cat! The wonderful, wonderful cat! Whenever he gets in a fix, he reaches into his bag of tricks!

Yes, my namesake is a little bit of a troublemaker, but not this guy! I definitely don’t get myself into bad situations often. I mean, I’m super well-behaved…mostly. I am still a kitten, of course, so you have to keep that in mind. I might get into a “fix” every once in a while, but mostly it’s just sweetness and joy with me.

I love to give kisses and snuggle up with my humans when I get the chance. Snuggling is one of my favorite things! I also love playing with feather toys, jingle balls, and even a rubber duckie every now and then. I’m still adjusting to my foster home and I’m not totally comfortable around other feline friends. Kiddos? They’d be fine if they’re older and understand that I’m not a toy.

So, if you want to bring home a real, live Felix the Cat, then make sure to send an email to adopt@pawscoadoptions.org and fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/catadoptionapplication/. Make sure you have some rubber duckies ready!

Milkshake: The Sweet Treat You’ve Been Waiting For

Milkshake: The Sweet Treat You’ve Been Waiting For
By Ashton Haga, Milkshake’s Foster Mom

IMG_3674Milkshake did not have an easy start in life. She came to me as an absolutely terrified 6-month-old kitten. She had a severe case of ringworm, and she had clearly had little interaction with humans previously (at least positive humans). With extensive vetting we were able to kick the ringworm and get Milkshake 100 percent healthy, but the idea of transforming her from a wild animal to a house cat was daunting.

 

We had to start slow and work our way up. From getting used to my voice, to getting used to my presence, and finally my touch, we took baby steps. With time, she was warming up and actually starting to show that she enjoyed my company.

 

Once Milkshake was introduced to the household, she found her saving grace: her kitty foster brother. She stuck with him 24/7 and started imitating the behaviors she saw! She picked up meal times, the best places to snooze in the sun during the day, and that being around humans was actually kind of fun!

 

Fast forward four months and it’s hard to believe that was how we started! Milkshake is absolutely thriving now. She has gone from scared kitten to confident cat, and she loves to play. She knows that one day she WILL catch that laser pointer!
IMG_3673
Milkshake is still a little skittish around excited puppies or unexpected movements, but she bounces back almost immediately. The thing is, she WANTS to be with you, and she’s willing to offer a little more trust to make that happen. She will happily follow you from room to room just to be near you. No matter what’s going on, she’s not too far off, and her favorite place to sleep at night is in bed next to you.

 

Now, just like her name, Milkshake is a truly sweet treat. She’s looking for a forever family that’s willing to give her a little adjustment time. She’s learning that humans are a good thing after all, and she’s ready for her perfect human (that’s you!) to come along. Just look at those fluffy cheeks… How can you resist?
