This is Peek-A-Boo who ended up at the shelter because her person was too ill to care for her. She’s a lovely 13 year old calico getting lots of love and affection from staff and volunteers at PAWS.

That’s Cove on top and Greyrock under the bench. From their position and body language, you can probably tell that Cove is confident and outgoing, while Greyrock is more shy.

Recently we won a generous selection of Valerian stuffed toys by entering a contest held by the charming and stunning kitty blogger, Cathy Keisha. They were made by the Bavarian Cat Toy company.
What’s in valerian, you might ask?

Or, if you ask Miss Piggy at PAWS, it’s pure stinky bliss.
When there is so much playing that needs to be accomplished, it’s no wonder that posing for pictures falls to the bottom of a kitten’s to-do list.

Coincidentally, I actually know the winner and I am so pleased for her.
Usually there is a card hanging on each cage that describes the cat within, but in this case, there was only the word “Gravy”.
We were asked if we’d like to try out PetSafe’s Cheese Cat Toy. When they found out we wanted to bring the toys to PAWS, they generously sent us two for the shelter cats and one for our Mickey Mouser and Rufus the Red! Plus they offered to sponsor a give away.
As you can see, my cats were fascinated. Now, on to PAWS…
