Squishy

Squishy is a lovely lady whose manners are always on display! Conducting herself with the utmost grace and poise, she can often be found napping with one front paw neatly stacked on top of the other. Her little personal domain in the shelter is always so tidy as well! This doesn’t mean she doesn’t know how to have a good time. She loves batting around toys that make rattling sounds!

Squishy will likely mind her own business when you first meet her as she’s quite independent. She’s got her special spots in her room that she loves, but is super patient and would love to get to know you. It’s easy to gain her trust with a friendly gesture and you can tell she trusts you and what she likes by her purr, one of the loudest we’ve heard! She’s such a sweetie and a wonderful peaceful companion, happy to sit and sunbathe, and she’d love to meet you!

Tchaikovsky

Hello, humans! My name is Tchaikovsky but, you can call me Chai! When I'm not snuggling up with you in the morning, you can find me playing with cat toys and exploring your house. After all, one of us needs to be on the lookout for new adventures. Speaking of adventures, I just discovered that rolling around in the empty bathtub is one of my new favorite things to do! I recommend you try it sometime. It's really fun.

I'm really social and outgoing. I love to be petted. You can even pick me up, if you'd like! I also love to hang out with other cats so your best friends will easily become my best friends too! Playtime is more fun when you can share it with another pawmate, after all.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you! Let's hang out and play soon!

Paws and Purrs,

Tchaikovsky, your future pawsome meowmate

Doodle

Doodle is an adorable cat who loves to relax and lounge around. She may be shy at first, but when she warms up to you, she’ll be the best nap buddy you’ve ever had! She loves sitting next to you and enjoying your company, without constantly berating you for attention - but she will come up and headbutt you for pets when she wants. If you have a quiet home and are looking for a relaxed cat, Doodle may just be your perfect fit.

Don’t let her initial shyness fool you - she will be the perfect loving and loyal companion for her human, and she also has a bit of a spicy side! She likes what she likes, and she’ll let you know. Doodle is not, for example, a fan of belly rubs; and she made that clear to her foster family! But her sweet side is more than worth the sass.

Doodle is patiently waiting for a relaxed, chill lifestyle in her forever home. Winning her over may take a few days, but it will be worth the short wait for this lovable girl. If you’re looking for a companion who will enjoy your presence and lounge around in the sun, Doodle might just be your perfect match.

Forest

Meet Forest and Willow, two wonderfully playful, entertaining, adorable young adult cats.

Forest is a very sweet young man, whose favorite pastimes include playing, cuddling, and having full-blown conversations with those he's close to. He takes a little bit of time to warm up to people, but once he knows you, he'll be our best friend.

Willow is the opposite of her brother. While she also enjoys playing and relaxing at home, she is not a very talkative and she mellows out some of Forest's energy. Willow is much more content to play with her pom toy for a few minutes before finding a nice warm spot to curl up in and relax - especially if that spot is in a nearby human's lap or with a stuffed animal.

Despite being so different, Forest and Willow are the closest of friends. They often spend time balancing each other out, with Forest encouraging Willow to play and Willow quieting Forest down for cuddle sessions. This pair would like to be adopted together.

Boogie

Hi there! I’m Boogie. I’m a social and outgoing cat who is very active and loves to play. I particularly like laser pointers to chase and wand toys that can allow me to jump. I love playing with my foster human and I admit I can get antsy when I’m bored. And I love attention! I will follow my human from room to room. I will wait for them while they get ready in the morning and eat breakfast and dinner with them. I love sitting in laps while you watch TV or do work and I’ve found laps to be an excellent place for my naps!

I’m a very sweet girl who would be equally happy living in a home with kids or living in a home with a single adult. I do prefer living with other cats and I am bonded with my brother, Ponyo, so we must go home together.

Ponyo

Hi! My name is Ponyo. I’ve been told by my foster parent that I’m a shy cat at first. It indeed took me a while to get comfortable, but once I figured out I was safe, I showed my true personality. First of all, I am self-sufficient. I am happy to sit around just watching tv with my person or watching my person work. I like to play, but I don’t demand it. My favorite things to play with include a good laser pointer and little mouse toys, but I’m also happy with anything that might be laying on the coffee table. Second, I like to be petted and held. I will happily sit in your lap. If I’m really feeling it, I like to be cradled like a baby. And my meows are very gentle.

I might follow you into the bathroom to watch you brush your teeth, but that’s just because I want to be near you. Overall, I’m just a very sweet cat looking for affection. I am bonded with my sister, Boogie, so we must go home together. We are two years old.

Foreman

Hi! My name is Foreman. I'm really really happy to be in a Paws and Claws foster home. My last home was not such a fun place. I'm not too cuddly yet- I get scared when people come at me too fast or stand over me. I can get nervous when you try to pet me. If you let me come to you, I will settle down and be very affectionate. It just needs to be on my terms at first.

My foster says I will end up warming your heart if you can be patient with me. When I want attention, I'll meow at you and run to you so I can self-pet against your legs. I also thrive when I can rely on routine. I like having my own safe space set up.

After my morning meal, I usually find a spot to nap for the day. I like napping near my foster. I love to toss toys when I play, and will happily bound after them. After my evening meal, my foster and I always have catnip time. I run when I hear the container shaking! I play and I feel very affectionate before going to bed.

I would do best with an experienced cat owner who will take the time to get to know me and will be patient. And I don't mind other cats or dogs, so I could go to a home with other pets as long as the home is on the more quiet side. I also would probably prefer a home without young children. Older kids are okay though! With patience and routine, I will be the best cat ever!

Once he tuckers himself out, he appreciates some quality petting. He may ask you affection by bumping into your leg or finding his way into your lap.

Chance is looking for his next chance, his forever home. He is a very sweet, active cat who is looking to go to a home where he can watch over his people, receive plenty of scritches, and play the day away.

Danish

Please meet Danish! She is a quiet and calm cat who loves to be close to her favorite humans. Danish openly shares her affectionate and loving personality. Her foster mom shared that Danish often greets her when she comes home, placing her two front paws on her and pressing her head against her. She also likes to fall asleep next to her foster mom on the couch with her belly up and her teeth sticking out a little bit, with the added benefit of teaching her that couches are best for napping. Such a sweetie!

Danish loves being near her humans, showing curiosity in what they are doing, but she also likes to have some independence. Instead of getting picked up and carried, she prefers to follow her humans around the house and receive gentle pets on her neck and head.

While Danish prefers a good nap or cuddle, when she is in the mood for play, she enjoys chasing little toy balls, demonstrating her agile and graceful abilities. It might also come in handy to have a toy ball nearby during a petting session in case she decides she is feeling frisky and it is time for play! In addition to playing, Danish finds a lot of enjoyment watching water pour into the bathtub and then likes to hop into the tub after it is drained and still warm. So brave for a cat to go so close to water!

Sometimes I also need a little encouragement from my sister to try things, but then I will love joining right in.
