Our Pet of the Week:

Taffy is a beautiful 1 year 4 month old dilute calico who was owner relinquished due to life changes. Taffy is a playful cat who likes everyone and is okay with dogs and other cats. She has two very fun kittens, Baby Ruth and O’Henry, who are also ready to go to their new homes who are 3 1/2 months old. Baby Ruth is a brown tiger and O’Henry is an orange and white kitten. You can meet Taffy and her kittens all next weekend during our adoption hours. 

Sebastian is a very handsome 1-1 1/2 year old long haired all white cat. He is a very sweet and very loving kitty who loves to snuggle and to be brushed. He likes friendly cats and dogs, but will need a little time to adjust to new friends. You can stop by and meet Sebastian at PetSmart in Traverse City!

Tommy is a very handsome two year old black kitty who was found living in a shed with his sister, Fredrika. He is a very sweet boy who loves to be loved. You can meet Tommy in the catery at Petsmart.

Our Pet of the Week:

Chex is quite the character with the greatest personality! You can tell by how he’s chillin’ during our adoptions last weekend. Chex is very playful and so much fun to watch. He is an indoor kitty, but if given the opportunity, he will try to run outside, so he will have to be carefully watched until he knows he is not to go outside. It might be best that he be in a home with adults and older children. You can meet Chex at Petsmart this weekend during our adoption hours.

We received this beautiful email this weekend and thought we would share it with you….

Hi Volunteers of AC PAW, 

In 2007 you rescued a family of orange kittens, and on the day I stopped in to get food and litter for my own rescue, I saw a kitten alone in a cage that read, “Please adopt in pairs.” 

I asked you about him, and why cats should be adopted in pairs, and one of your volunteers explained to me that it’s actually a common misconception that cats are loners, and they love  company. It broke my heart that he was alone so I adopted him from you and named him Pumpkin. You took care of all his shots and his neuter, and let me give him a home, so thank you. 

My only other cat (his name is Morn) is one I had rescued myself. I had no idea about the work of rescue volunteers or how many cats really need our help. I have since moved to Toronto and now volunteer my time at the local Toronto Cat Rescue. Pumpkin is all grown up now, and super cuddly and in my home of two other cats. 

I just realized today that I never had a chance to thank any of you, because it didn’t really hit me until I was living here that you saved a life. A very important one to me and I never had a chance to follow up with you and thank you for doing so. I wouldn’t know what to do if Pumpkin wasn’t a part of our family. 

Thank you so much for rescuing Pumpkin and giving him a home with me. 

Warmest Regards, 

Sara (& Pumpkin)

Chex is an adorable and very sweet black and white kitten. He is very playful and so much fun to watch. Chex is an indoor kitty, but if given the opportunity, he will try to run outside, so he will have to be carefully watched until he knows he is not to go outside. It might be best that he be in a home with adults and older children. You can meet Chex at Petsmart this weekend during our adoption hours. 

Pursie is up for adoption with her babies, Amelia and Willa. She is a beautiful one year old brown tiger. She is polydactyl which means she has extra toes. She should not be declawed and should remain an indoor kitty. Pursie is very sweet, but somewhat independent. You can meet her this Saturday during our adoption hours. 

Levi and Jerod and their sister Morgan are litter-mates. Levi is a tiger and white kitty and Jerod is a gray and white kitty. Like Morgan, they are four months old. They are a bit shy and will need a home where they will get lots of love with someone who will have the patience to give them time to adjust to their new surroundings. 

Our Pet of the Week:

Vito took some time off for some R&R, but he is ready to go to his new home! He is such a great fella. He is so friendly and enjoys the company of people. He is good with other animals and loves to play so he would make a nice addition to any family. Vito is a three year old very handsome black kitty and you can meet him in the catery at PetSmart. We know if you spend some time with him, he will win your heart.

Mary Jane is a cutie who has some very extraordinary markings. She is a really sweet 4 1/2 month old kitten who was found wandering around an apartment complex by someone who brought her to AC PAW. When she first came to us she was quite scared and upset, but after a few days in her foster home, she relaxed into the funny, sweet girl she really is. She loves petting, rubbing, and lap sitting. This little girl has a big V-8 engine purr! She quickly adjusted to her foster mom’s other cats and became quite playful with them. She is a great little girl who needs a stable, forever home.
