P.A.W.S: A wise and mature cat

By Carolyn Marsh | Mar 18, 2014

Our sweet Kiki has been here since August 2013, and she — and we too — thinks that’s long enough. She’s 12 years old, a wise and mature cat who still has many of the best kitten qualities and remains a ferocious mouser. She loves to gaze out the window at everything going on out there, and she loves catnaps just as much, especially if they are in the hot, hot sun. (Needless to say, she has not had many sunny catnaps this winter. But then, none of us has. The only difference is that Kiki doesn’t complain.)

Kiki is not a food snob, which is a good thing, since canned cat food is her daily fare. In fact, she loves it, and she is not one of those picky cats who sniffs all around the food dish and then stalks off in such a manner as to indicate that she is insulted that you could have imagined she would eat that (despite the fact that she gobbled it down yesterday as though it were fresh lake-caught salmon — but then, that is what we love about cats: They are so predictably unpredictable.)

Kiki is a very affectionate little lady (except where dogs and most other cats are concerned). She likes to be petted, and she is especially partial to long, vigorous scratching under her chin. She’s also up to date on vaccines and all her good health meds. And perhaps best of all, she qualifies for the Senior to Senior program, which means adoption is free for anyone older than 60.

Kiki is one of those gorgeous black-and-white cats whose tip-tilted green eyes give her the appearance of an exotic breed. But whatever her breed, she is a lovely cat with a loving disposition and will bring much joy to whoever is lucky enough to take her home.

On the wish list: dry cat food and non-clumping cat litter. On the livelier side, we need more laser-light toys for the cats to chase, toy mice, cat brushes, cat carriers and catnip.

The elusive warm is getting closer every day. Instead of sitting around counting the minutes, why not stop by the shelter and bask in the warmth that love and animals can bring? Please stop in and see us and all our beautiful babes at 146 Camden St. in Rockport. We’re open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, and PAWSAdoption.org is never closed! And thank you, as always, for your caring and support.
