Sunday Selfies: Week #127


Guest host: calico Charlotte


This stunning calico is Charlotte, the kitty I am now sponsoring at PAWS Connecticut.

Her PetFinder bio reads: Charlotte is a sweet girl about five years old who is a little shy until she knows and trusts you. Once she does, she is very affectionate, likes to be brushed and sit near you. She gets along with other nice cats and would be a great companion.

She is listed on the PAWS web-site as three and a half years old. We are not certain which information is more accurate.

PetFinder also states that Charlotte is: House trained • Spayed/Neutered • Current on vaccinations • Coat Length: Short.

As I did with Swizzle, I will sponsor this girl until she finds her forever home, however long that might take.

I had planned to sponsor two kitties, Pumpkin and Miss Piggy, after Swizzle was adopted. Both, however, were adopted before I could even submit my request. Recently PAWS volunteer and our friend, Kevin (meowmeowmans), let me know Pumpkin had been returned to PAWS.

This is what Kevin wrote to me:

Apparently, her adopters were not patient enough to let Pumpkin come out of her shell on her own schedule. So they brought her back, saying she was not warming up to them. Hiding, smacking them when they tried to pet her, etc. It makes us sad, and kind of mad, but it is better that Pumpkin is back with us than some alternatives we can only imagine. She is a good girl, and we are all giving her lots of love, as always.

This saddens me as well. I will be inquiring this week about sponsoring Pumpkin as well as Charlotte. She deserves at least that much.

If you can afford to do so, please consider sponsoring a PAWS cat or one from your local shelter or rescue. Most have similar programs. All you need do is inquire. If I am able to sponsor Pumpkin as well, I’ll let you know. And if you or someone you know might like to adopt Charlotte or any of the other PAWS kitties, click on their link in the first paragraph.


This is our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. All anipals, regardless of species, are welcome and encouraged to join.
