CATS ADOPTION ALERT: ANABELLE AND FRANCHESCA – AN UNIQUE COMBINATION OF CALICO AND TORTOISESHELL

ANABELLE is a three-year, three-month old female tiger and calico cat. Franchesca is an almost four year old tortoiseshell female cat. Their former owner had several cats, and was relocating. Unfortunately she could not take all the cats, so Anabelle and Franchesca, the bonded two of the household, came to us. Anabelle is very playful, and will roll over multiple times, gently grabbing at your hand to play with her and give her attention. Franchesca, the more reserved of the two, ambles over to join in, and we...

The Transformation of Slugger

My partner and I foster cats for PAAWS RI. After our last foster, Cooper, was adopted we met a fluffy 4-month-old nugget while volunteering at the shelter. Our hearts melted! I called the shelter manager, Heidi, to let her know we were ready for our next foster. Before I could mention the fluffy nugget she said, “I was really hoping you would foster Slugger. He really needs you.” Slugger? Cat names and faces raced through my mind and then it came to me: Slugger, the beat-up 15-pound semi-feral that...

CAT ADOPTION ALERT:  GUINNESS – A PLAYFUL KITTEN-AT-HEART

CAT ADOPTION ALERT:  FIGGY –DID YOU SAY BEAUTIFUL CALICO? THAT’S ME!

FIGGY is a five-year-old dilute calico female cat. Though we don’t know the whole story, we suspect that Figgy’s young owner returned to her parents’ home, and Figgy could not tolerate the change. Calicos tend to be oriented most strongly to their owner(s); neither Figgy nor the other residents of the home were able to foster a bond with each other. Coming to the shelter was traumatic for Figgy, for it was an experience as alien to life as she formerly knew it. For two days she huddled in a corner and...
