Today, I am posting about cats. Cats that need homes. The photo above is a cat condo at the new PAWS of Bainbridge Island & North Kitsap County at the new Pleasant Beach Village located at Lynwood Center on Bainbridge Island. This is at the south end of Bainbridge Island in Washington state - just mentioning this as this is on my stamping blog and is probably viewed by people in other states. I live down the road from Lynwood Center and I visited the new PAWS location last month. They used to reside at Fletcher Bay in an older building. They definitely have moved up in the world and it is a much better place for the cats. It is thanks to the local Windermere that PAWS was able to have this new location at Pleasant Beach Village. That and donations and the community. There are cat condos at PAWS and I think the cats that prefer to be alone stay in these nicely ventilated condos! Josie resides in this cat condo. The upper small door is where her food is at. The bathroom facilities are in the lower small door, that would be the litter box. The cat enters thru small open holes/windows. You can go into the area and open the doors and play with the cats. The people that work there will tell you the personalities of the cats. Very important to know that, you know!
The above photo is Dan. Dan is a polydactyl. Dan started to cough. They told me that he likes to inhale his food. Doesn't chew it real well. Just inhales. Then a little later, he starts to cough. Hmmm, that sounds very familiar. My dad used to do that.
This is...I forgot her name. She was grumpy. When I opened the door, she meowed, but the meow did not sound friendly. I was going to put my hand back there and pet her and coax her out of her bed. She answered me with a meow when I was talking to her, but the tone of the meow was not too good. So I decided it was best not to put my hand in there and I told her to have a nice day and shut the door.
This is one of the windows in a larger room that houses cats that I believe do not mind being in a room with other cats. There are 3 of these round windows that look into one of the Windermere employee's office!
This is Nalla sitting in one of the windows. I think that is her name. This larger room has chairs, food for the cat and litter boxes. You can sit in there and play with the cats, hold them, etc.
This is one of the chairs in the larger room.
This is Eric. VERY friendly guy. He shares the larger room with Nalla and another cat, at least when I was there last month. Not sure how quickly these cats gets adopted. I had a hard time taking pictures of Eric as everytime I bent down to take pictures, he came running to me. Then when I would go over to pet Nalla or the other cat that was in there, Eric came running and had to butt in! Eric likes attention and I think needs to be the center of attention. One of those.
This is Nalla again in the window that looks out to the street/road from the large room. This is an article about the new PAWS. If you haven't figured it out by now, I am a cat lover! I find it fascinating to watch their behavior. One of the things I like to observe - human behavior and animals. The day I stopped in, there were no kittens there. I think kittens tend to be adopted quicker than cats. Anyway, have a wonderful week!
