Humans aren’t the only victims of domestic violence. When a woman fled her home recently, she couldn’t take her beloved Ninja, so she surrendered this black beauty to WHS. Her message: “She needs lots of love and care, please. I wanted to keep her, but I can’t.” When I met Ninja in the kennel, she was hiding under this stool, but immediate crawled out. She pressed her head into my hand, then turned so I could scratch her back, then switched back and forth like she couldn’t get enough! She’s declawed, 3 years, alert, extremely affection-starved and prefers the company of older women, but should do nicely with a family. When I left her kennel, I heard the tiniest little “mew”.
Little Lucy Meow Meow ran into a home during last winter’s big snowstorm with six kittens and charmed her way into one couple’s hearts. But not the landlord’s, so she came to WHS. This sweet Torbie is gray and orange and loves people. The kittens are gone now, so she needs her own home, too. She’s spayed, current on shots, micro-chipped and ready for love. She crawled into my arms when I opened her door.
I hung out for a long time with Chapman and found it hard to stop petting this incredibly soft long-hair 4 year old with giant gold eyes. He rolled on his back and just laid there looking at me. These kitty beds were designed and donated by Caleb Gail, student volunteer, as an Eagle Scout project. They’re a hit with the cats! Chapman is a social butterfly, his paperwork says he’d be great in a busy family with kids. Very calm, tolerant and sweet. A favorite among the Camp Paw Paw kids who take care of WHS kitties.
