Meet General Zod!

Meet General Zod!

General Zod
Domestic Long Hair
Male
3 years old

Hello, General Zod here.

That sounds very official, doesn’t it? Well, I’m not nearly as serious as my name might indicate; in fact, I’m quite the affectionate little fella once I warm up to my human companions.

Sometimes it’s just about the facade and a name like General Zod allows me to hide behind a perceived supervillain persona and protect my heart from being broken. But, if I’m being honest, I’m really just dying to have my own forever family where my humans will love me unconditionally, play with me (lots of toys please) and take the time to let me get used to a new home and a new family. Okay, okay, just call me General Cuddle Buns, that’s what I really want!

One thing to mention is that I do have FIV, an immunodeficiency virus. I will very likely live a long and happy life but I might have a weaker immune system as I age. Therefore, I need to be an indoor cat only and be on a nutritious diet to help me stay healthy. Also, for your information, FIV is not transferable to humans or dogs. Our adoption team is happy to fill you in on more details or answer any questions you may have!

Now, what is it that you’re looking for? A four-legged feline friend perhaps? Someone to be the General of your heart? Well, lucky you, I’m all of those things and so much more! If you’d like to set up a time to meet me, email my friends at PawsCo and fill out an adoption application on the PawsCo website.  I’m excited to meet you!

Trill! Chirp! Purr! I’m Kira and I’m so thrilled to meet you!

I’m a social gal and I just love snuggles and ear scratches. In fact, I’m overjoyed about my new career as a baker. Yep, I love to make biscuits with my paws–I could knead all day! They say the best bakers bake from the heart, and that’s exactly what I do. Pet my head, and I’ll make biscuits all day long. You could say my motto is: “Will work for love!”

It’s pretty adorable how much I love affection. I’ll stand on two legs against a hand or leg if it means leaning in for a scratch or pet! I’m a real sweetie. I also get along really well with other cat friends (and I’d likely do just fine with dog friends as well as long as they are gentle!) I don’t have any bad habits–I’m litter box trained and won’t wake you up. I’m not hyper–I’m pretty content to spend lots of time getting beauty sleep. Though when a catnip mouse comes out, I’ll make you laugh and smile while I roll around with that fun toy!

With a quiet house where I can receive and give love, I’ll rise to the occasion like the biscuits I love to make. They say cats have nine lives, and I’m counting on my second life being the best one yet!

If you’re looking for a friendly feline to join your family, please email adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/adoption-application/. That would be the cat’s meow!

Meet Bubbie!

Meet Bubbie!

Bubbie
Domestic Short Hair

Have you guys heard of this new trend called Cat Memes? Apparently, they’re all the rage on the Interwebs. After seeing a few, I decided I was the inspiration for cat memes! You see, I love being pet, until I don’t like being pet anymore! Apparently, this kind of behavior is super funny to you humans. Well, that’s just me, Bubbie, being Bubbie!

When I was younger and looking for a family, I tried out a store cage environment but really didn’t like it. It was quite lonely as I waited for a forever family that never came. After that, I ended up with the nice folks at PawsCo and now I am in a loving foster home and demanding shredded cheese on the regular.

My humans say I am very friendly, cheese-motivated, string-motivated, and after all that motivation, I am sleep-motivated. I am free to roam the house, and to be honest, with all that free time, I just can’t help but nap! I should also note that I am superbly nonchalant with other cats in the house and we get along just fine. (I secretly like the companionship.)

I am definitely on the adoption market and would be so happy to meet you and find out if you think I would be the right gentleman for your home. I promise to keep you company in the kitchen, nap by your side to keep you warm, rub up against your legs, and provide you with an abundance of inspiration for your venture into cat memes!

Thanks for considering me as an addition to your family. You can apply to adopt me or email my friends at PawsCo to learn more!

All About Miss Kitty

All About Miss Kitty

By Donna Flowers

Prep the tissues for a happy ending to a sad story.

Miss Kitty is a fluffy 14-year-old ball of love and affection that was unceremoniously dumped at a shelter when her owner died. Afraid of where she was, missing her warm home and companions and suffering from extreme dental issues, Miss Kitty was quickly losing weight and her will to live.

But cats have nine lives, right?

When we first met Miss Kitty, her fur was matted and dirty, she was a bag of bones and she had a definite need to be held. All the time. By everybody and anybody. She wanted to be in your lap. If not there, then in your arms. And definitely right beside you in bed. It was borderline annoying!  But she is so easy to love that we obliged and she has since regained her confidence, as well as her beautiful fur coat, and has settled into a nice routine of snoozing on her own before seeking out a lap.

Oh, and eating! PawsCo addressed all of Miss Kitty’s dental issues and she is slowly, but surely, regaining her girlish figure. With only two teeth to her name, however, soft food is certainly best (though she has been seen sneaking the dog’s kibble!)

She currently lives with another foster cat and a young dog and they all tolerate each other just fine and share everything.

Except laps.

Thumper’s Story

Thumper’s Story

By Donna Flowers, Thumper’s foster mom

Thumper. What a cat!

I have had the pleasure of fostering this 14-year-old boy for just over a month now and I really must say that he is a delight.  His backstory is a little fuzzy – he was turned in as a stray, but as a very sweet and declawed cat, he must have been a beloved house cat at one time and the quickness at which he settled in confirms it.

Thumper is like all the cats you’ve ever known all rolled into one handsome ball. He is mellow most of the time, but likes to play sometimes as well. He is just as happy to lie in the window as he is to lounge on your lap, but is equally content to ignore you altogether for a few hours at a time. He has a very curious personality – always wanting to check out the closets and watch out the windows, but has zero interest in dogs!  He gets along well with my other foster cat, however; they mostly ignore each other despite sharing everything.

He loves to eat and is very insistent that you should share whatever it is you are eating from whatever bag you just opened. He also loves to be loved when he wants to be loved. He will follow you around the house, beg for treats, sleep on your feet, purr when you hold him…and then he will steal away for his, “Me Time.”

As an older (and wiser!) cat, he has developed a bit of arthritis that causes him to look a little drunk when he walks, but with a daily dose of his arthritis medicine (which he likes!), he gets around just fine.

I think I would sum Thumper up best as a Low-Maintenance Best Friend; one who is warm, loving, entertaining, and appreciative, but doesn’t need you to call him all the time. 🙂
