Meow! Hi friends of PawsCo. My name is Stich and I am fully aware of my cuteness. I am super friendly, confident, and chatty. Another way to describe these characteristics is…simply purrfect!

When I was little, I lived in a home with dogs and cats alike. I did well with those guys because I am a happy girl. I have a medium energy level, which means I won’t drive you, your pets, or your visitors crazy. I pride myself on being a pretty darn good housemate. My only request is that you feed me breakfast on time. My tummy gets hungry if you make me wait too long; I’m sure you understand.

I’m not a toy fanatic and I don’t feel the need to explore outside. My favorite part of life is when my people, or even new people, come into the house. I really, really love pets and being brushed and I know the more humans that are around, the more likely I am to have hands on me!

Well guys, that’s a little bit about me. To recap, I am perfectly cute, happy, and cool. I’m thinking you want to learn more about me! Thanks for considering me as an addition to your family. You can apply to adopt me on the PawsCo website or contact my friends at PawsCo to learn more!

Meet Lilly!

Meet Lilly!

Lilly
Calico, Domestic Short Hair
Female
1 year old

So, I was having a chat with myself just yesterday and I asked myself, “Lilly, what would make you the happiest cat ever?” The more I thought about it, the more I decided to tell myself how much I would just love to be part of a cute little family. You know, one with maybe another cat or a calm dog. Maybe one with a couple of older kids that would pet me and love me and never chase me. Ooh! One with a kind and gentle soul that would look into my beautiful eyes and know, just know instantaneously, how much of a kind and gentle soul I am, too.

Then I asked myself, “But Lilly, that’s a pretty tall order! Are you sure you are worthy of such an awesome family?” Which was really a pretty silly question for such a confident cat as I am, because absolutely I am worthy of such an awesome family! I think I am the total cat package: friendly, funny, sweet, polite, and, might I add…beautiful! Okay, so maybe I’m a little shy at first, but I think that’s just part of my charm. I warm up super quickly and I am always nice to anyone who is nice to me.

I almost started to ask myself how I thought I could ever find such a great place to call home, but then I remembered that I am a PawsCo cat! PawsCo is going to hook me up! There is nothing in my way but an easy-peasy adoption application and a quick email to my PawsCo friends!

Meet Bubbie!

Meet Bubbie!

Bubbie
Domestic Short Hair
Male
5 years old

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!

Meet Tikki!

Meet Tikki!

Tikki
Manx Cat (Brown Tabby)
Male
6 years old
12 lbs.

When you hear the word “perfect,” do you think of something or someone who is without fault, flawless, or ideal? “Perfect” is defined as “having all the required or desirable elements, qualities, or characteristics; as good as it is possible to be.” It also happens to be how my foster family describes little ol’ me. That’s right, my name is Tikki and according to those who know me well, I’m just perfect.

At 6 years old, I’m definitely past the kitten stage, but that doesn’t mean I don’t know how to have fun! I can still play and pounce with the best of them! That said, I also know when it’s time to snuggle. I accept affection from everyone. I’m a gentle soul who is happy to hang out with humans (both big and small), canines and other felines, too! I’ve been a pro at the litter box for as long as I can remember, and I will make sure to keep an eye on that roomba for everyone’s sake.

So, there you have it. Fun, loving, protective, smart—that’s me! Who doesn’t want a little perfection in their lives? Or perhaps in my case, purrfection is a better word. See, I’m even funny! I’m also looking forward to meeting my forever family so make sure you email my friends at adopt@pawscoadoptions.org or fill out an adoption application at pawsco.org/adoptions/catadoptionapplication/. Let’s find out if you and I are the purrrrfect fit!

Meet Thumper!

Meet Thumper!

Thumper
Domestic Short Hair
Male
14 years old
10 lbs.

Hello! How nice of you to stop by! It was my face that caught your eye, I’m sure; probably thinking to yourself, “Wow! What a handsome fellow!” Thanks, I get that a lot. So, yeah, I’m Thumper and I’m 14. If you are still reading, then, like me, you are very wise. You already know that an older cat is a relaxed cat, a mellow cat, an appreciative cat…..You already know that I’ll be fine by myself while you run a few errands, that your house will be fine, that your brand new leather couch will be fine…. You already know that I’m as happy to lounge in the sunny window as on your lap and that I prefer petting to playing. It would also be correct to assume that, as an older and wiser feline, I have many purrrrrls of wisdom to share about patience, loyalty, tenacity and unconditional love, and that I don’t mind hanging out with other chill cats.

What you might not know however, is just how much I love eating. Cat food, cat treats, that cake you left on the kitchen counter, that milk in your cereal bowl (what do you mean you weren’t done?). I’ve been compared to a dog in this manner, which I would find offensive it if wasn’t true. But think of it this way, you’ll never have to clean crumbs off the kitchen floor again because I’ll do it for you! I could be your sous chef! Maybe I’ll stop once I fatten back up now that my shelter hunger strike is over, but I’m not making any promises.

Since you’ve read this far, I guess I should also let you know that I’ve got a bit of an arthritic hip. It doesn’t stop me from doing everything I want to do, thanks to my arthritis medicine, but I do need to be a little more careful. For example, I don’t really need your help to get back down off the kitchen counter (really, just hide that cake!), but I would be grateful for a helping hand sometimes. My fast-moving days are behind me so I’d like to avoid a house with fast-moving hazards, like unfriendly dogs. On the plus side, (for you, anyway) is that although I am always on the lookout for a chance to explore the great outdoors, you’ll likely be able to catch me purrrrrty darn quick.

Anyhoo, I guess that’s enough about me. Why not tell me a little something about you? Go to the PawsCo website and fill out an adoption application. I already know, even before I read it, that you and I would be great together. We should set up a Meet & Greet! A quick email to my PawsCo friends will get the ball rolling!

Meet Kitty!

Meet Kitty!

Kitty
Domestic Long Hair
Female
14 years old
6 lbs.

My name is Miss Kitty and all you really need to know about me is that I LOVE LAPS. I love everybody and anybody that has a lap. I love laps of all shapes and sizes. Big laps, little laps, warm laps…a Facebooking lap too busy to pet me, or a lap with all the time in the world. You might be thinking that I’m prone to exaggeration and that certainly I must like to do more than spend all day in the comfort of a lap, but you’d be mistaken. If you lose your lap, I can definitely help you find it. It’s not hard to do really, I’ll just follow you around the house while you look for it, offering plaintive meows of encouragement, until eventually you sit down and then, viola! There it is – and there I’ll be!

I might need a little help getting into your lap, I mean, I am 14 years old, but once I’m there, man, I’m there to stay. If I learned one thing from my stretch in the shelter, it’s that a lap should never be taken for granted again. They are a thing of beauty and worthy of the utmost appreciation! Just ignore that face I make when you decide to get up, I really don’t mean anything by it. It’s just, well, a lap truly is my most favorite thing in the whole world. If laps were cupcakes, I’d be the World’s Fattest Cat!

As it stands though, I probably should eat a few dozen cupcakes. My undeserved and unwarranted time at the shelter really took a toll on me, what with the lack of laps and all, but I fully intend to regain my pleasingly plump figure as soon as possible. These dang teeth of mine, or lack of a few to be exact, are slowing things down a little (wet cat food only, please!) but I’m determined.

But back to laps, it should probably also be said that if I’m not sleeping on your lap, I’m gonna want to be sleeping in your bed. Like, right next to you. Like, under-the-covers-snuggle next to you. I hope you won’t mind. I know I won’t! I also don’t mind living with other cats provided there are enough laps to go around. So, please give me a call! A lap is a terrible thing to waste! The best way to reach me is via email. While you’re at it, tell me a bit about yourself, too! Head over to the PawsCo website and fill out an adoption application. I can’t wait to meet you!

Meet Claire!

What’s today’s date? What! It’s 2017 already?

Golly-gee-willikers, time passes by so quickly. I cannot believe I’m already a senior citizen—or so the label on my bag of food tells me. Luckily for me, I still have lots of love to give to an amazing forever family. I’ve recently been staying with a foster family and they have been absolutely delightful, but I’m ready to find my senior feline palace—or forever home if you prefer to call it.

You know what the best part of adopting a senior animal is? All the sage advice and stories you’ll get to hear. Like that one time my friend Gladys got a new bag of catnip for Christmas and we went out to tease the dogs next door…maybe you had to be there to think it’s funny. Anyways, I have lots of valuable worldly advice too; like never paw at a yellow and black striped flying bug, or never swallow a grasshopper whole because they’ll keep hopping in your tummy. That’s only the tip of my advice iceberg—or adviceberg, as I like to call it.

I am also a big fan of other cat friends and would also do well with a dog friend (as long as he is calm and polite with having a feline buddy!) So a home where I can have other furry friends is a great match for me but I also would do just fine as the solo animal in the home as well.

One thing to note is that I do need medication to help with my hyperthyroidism. The kind folks at PawsCo can fill you in on the details!

If you’re interested in hearing more of my stories and advice—like how to maintain your balance while swatting inanimate objects—then please email my friends from PawsCo at adopt@pawscoadoptions.org and fill out an adoption application at https://pawsco.org/adopt/catadoptionapplication/.
