Shelter Cats

Harvest Festival

Sunday I brought fresh catnip from my garden to PAWS. Not all cats like the nip, but Matt (on the right) sure enjoyed it.

Frank was not interested.

Petite charmer Wiggles was amazed!

Purring loudly, Mindy actually ate every leaf, and then she took a long nip nap.
She wouldn’t share with David or Taylor (in the background).

Frank, Wiggles, Matt, Mindy, David, Taylor and many more fine cats are ready and waiting at PAWS in Norwalk CT.

Please visit the website for more information and adoption applications.

By the time I got to the Lobby Room, my supply of catnip was gone.
But, these busy playful youngsters don’t need any extra stimulation!

Such great pictures of PAWS kitties! Whether they like nip or not, they are so lucky to have caring human like you! Sounds like Mindy enjoyed the nip salad and maybe enjoyed nip dream in her nip nap 🙂

We have the same thing go on here with the fresh nip. Some just don’t care about it and some get in the with the catnip while it is growing. All of you have a great week.

What a great post filled with smiles! Love all these awesome feline friends. I have a lazy kitty but he does love catnip! Our sons Rose turns her nose up at most things and Daphne our further son-in-laws lil Calico is too shy to know what she is up too! I love all the photos. The kittens are precious too. The one black with white kitty on the right looks my boy Boots. He was like a person to me and I miss him everyday.
Thank you for the share. Enjoy your week.

What an adorable little gang of kitties

Great set of images. If more shelters posted photos like these, more of their pets would be adopted. You can actually see some of the personality of the animals in these images.

So agree with Driller’s Place comment. The beautiful photos on sites like yours make such a difference in cat adoption. Appreciate your beautiful photos and the time, love and dedication behind your site! 🙂

I think we saw Wiggles on ASVL! Your beautiful pictures are amazing! I especially like the last one where the black cat on the right has his paw on the calico’s behind. You capture their personalities so wonderfully!

Every one is adorable. Glad they enjoyed their nip.

These photos are awesome, Maggie! There was still some catnip left when we got to PAWS Sunday afternoon. We will attest to the fact that some kitties are a little, um, selfish with the catnip. MOL!

what a delightful treat for them! I am so sorry I didn’t see this sooner, I am not receiving ANY blogs via email that I subscribe to (that use Feedburner) as their source for mailing out………..I have no clue why this is happening or how to fix it. It’s driving me crazy!!!!

Oh they’re all so lovely! I bet they love you for bringing in the nip! My neighbor kitties love Mom’s garden green fresh nip. I purr-sonally prefer to wait for the nip to get dry and crumbly. Mom sprinkles it over my furry & it tickles!

Such sweetness!

Thank you for the thoughtful and kind comment you made on our post about our Daddy. We know he’s an Angel smiling down on us but we are heartbroken.

Oh all of them are dear and how I wish I were a volunteer too. They’d be smothered in hugs and kissies.
