We have quite a collection of donated Christmas items including decorations, ornaments and other holiday items for your home. This will be Janet’s second year of running this event and her prices are quite reasonable, if not downright cheap! We also have some wonderful baked goods that we are selling. Punch and cookies will be served. Feel free to visit the kitties in our open cat rooms after you stock-up on items to warm your home for the holidays. Hope to see you here!
Our very own Smoochie made an appearance on Louie’s radio program early this morning along with Jamie Hughes and her mother and Kimm Koocher. Smoochie was a big hit and everyone thought it funny that she had a diaper incident (except Kimm). She was zooming around in her cart to everyone’s delight.
Jaime and her mom were there to promote her Photos With Santa event coming up on the 14th in Austintown Plaza at the Party Store to benefit the shelter. There will be a petting zoo t the event.

It’s finally here! The fashion statement no human should be without! You’ve been asking for a Smoochie shirt – now it’s here! Get yours in time for Valentine’s Day, in your choice of gray or pink! Style and attitude that only La Princessa can carry off can now be yours!. Click on the photos for a closer look. She looks so great with her yellow-green eyes and pink nose and ears!
The sale is over. The shirts are at the shelter. If you purchased one, stop by to pick yours up. If you must have it mailed, please let Kimm know. It will cost around $4-$5 to mail it out to you. Thanks for participating in this fund raising event!
The shirts are really nice and are $20.00. All proceeds go directly to the kitties and to help pay down our large vet bill!
You must order here by January 1, 2014 in order to get your shirt/since our vendor needs to know how many to make:
Pick your new shirt/s up at the shelter around Feb 1, 2014 or we will mail it to you if you are out of the Mahoning/Trumbull area.
Yep, you read it right. All shelter adoptions will be $10.00 in December. All cats and kittens at the shelter are included. Adoptions at Petco and PetSmart will be 1/2 off! What a wonderful way to bring a shelter kitty home for the holidays. As always, all adoptions include our normal Health Package.
This is little six-week-old Louise. She has a moderate case of CH and is able to walk. She also purrs and cuddles a great deal. She was given 12 hours to live before being euthanized in a kill-shelter when someone found us online and asked if we would take her. By the time she arrived she already had a foster home which looks likely to fail (they might adopt her!). Please support us this holiday season as we continue to save special-needs kitties and find them loving homes.
Who doesn’t love a surprise? Yesterday it was a question of who was more surprised, us or this lovely long-haired senior kitty. Diffley was found huddled in the rain, wrapped in a sodden blanket next to our dumpster. When he was brought inside and unwrapped, he was awarded an instant trip to the vet.
The vet diagnosed him with starvation, major flea issues, and old age, the vet and tech both guesstimated his age at 15+. His FeLV/FIV test came back negative, and bloodwork for kidney and liver function came back good, too.
Diffley is currently occupying his own suite, complete with heating pad and tasty food, in our clinic. He is on antibiotics and has doctor’s orders to rest and gain weight. He’s been treated with Advantage and Capstar so he is no longer supporting half the flea population in Youngstown, and he has been de-wormed to get rid of any other pesky critters. Once he gains a little strength and feels a bit better he will be allowed to get a bath.
West Side Cats is the only no-kill cat shelter in Youngstown, and the only place locally where Diffley and cats like him can find loving care and shelter from the winter cold. On Monday, Diffley needs to go to the vet for some urgently needed dental work. Please donate generously this holiday season so we can keep helping senior and handicapped cats find loving forever homes.
