“Hey Squeakers, I think something moved over there.” “Really, Chocolate? l don’t see anything.” “Look over there, Squeaker. I see a piece of
fluff. Could be a mouse.” “Whoa! Yeah!
Now I see it. Let’s get that dust
bunny!” “OK, sis. Ready, on three: One…Two,..”
Oh, sorry, I didn’t see you there.
My name is Chocolate and I was just talking to my sister, Squeaker. We love, love, anything that moves. So, we are always chasing, pouncing, dashing,
and playing. Not the scary, nutty kitten
way of playing. We are grown up
one-year-olds, yes we are. We have dignity.
Oh, wait, Squeaker, did you see that??? Let’s get it. “Chocolate, I think it is just a string our
foster is dangling.” “Who cares? I just
want to chase it.” “Ok, here I go, I am
going to get it first Chocolate.” “No
you won’t. I am faster.”
Well, I won, of course. But, I
guess I should get serious and introduce myself and my sister. I am the beautiful dark-brown, medium-haired
one with the amazing, fluffy tail. I
think they named me Chocolate because of my luscious color. But the name also fits because I am sweet as
candy. You can pick me up to cuddle and
I will purr and purr. At night I love to
cuddle up with you and purr some more. I
will definitely demand a spot in your heart and in your bed. I hope you don’t mind.
Squeaker is also quite the looker with her medium-haired, black and
white tuxedo look. She even has a cute
mustache-like marking on her upper lip.
I think she is elegance and cute—all rolled up into one fuzzy
kitty. She is a less cuddly cat than I
am, however. You will need to give her
time to learn to trust you. Of course,
you will have me to help in that
department. Squeakie and I are
inseparable. We eat, play, and sleep
together all day long. Since I will love
you, she will soon learn that she can love you, too. Cats kind of work that way. Not so unlike some humans.
Also like people, we felines can have allergies. My allergies are to food so I follow a
careful diet with no gluten, grain, or chicken.
It is not a big deal and Squeaker eats the same thing right along with
me. If you happen to have other cats in
your home, I hope they won’t mind sharing my diet. Otherwise, it might be easiest if Sis and I
were your only cats. That would simplify
feeding time and assure that we stay healthy and active for our entire life.
Oh wait, I think I see something interesting. “Squeaker, what is that?” “It is an empty plastic water bottle,
Chocolate, and it looks like it would be fun to toss around.” “Sure does, Squeakie. Watch me!” “That sure
is loud. Chocolate. You are making so
much noise with that thing.” “Yes, but
it rolls all over, Squeakers, and I love how it crinkles when I pounce.” “I agree, Choco. This is fun.”
I think I need to excuse myself now because this water bottle is the
absolute most fun toy I have ever found to play with. But I think I have given you a sense of
myself and my sister. We are beautiful,
fun-loving, young, healthy, and looking for our forever home. We think you might just be our perfect match.
So what are you waiting for? Pounce on
it and call PAWS now. Just ask for the Dynamic Duo of Squeaker and Chocolate.
To learn more about Chocolate
and Squeaker, or any of our other adoptable cats, kittens, or dogs, contact
PAWS at (781) 246-6111 or PAWSwakefield@yahoo.com. You can also meet many of
our available pets at our weekly adoption hours: Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 1
p.m., at VCA Wakefield Animal Hospital or at the Danvers PetSmart every
Thursday and Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. Last, but not least, we hold adoption hours

Kitten Season is here and PAWS is having a KITTEN PARTY every Saturday
at the VCA Wakefield Animal Hospital. We are currently taking in many
pregnant mothers and abandoned kittens and we really need you to come adopt so
we have room for more animals in our foster network. We also need foster homes, so if you are
interested in fostering, please contact PAWs to get more information and an
application. The need is great and you
can help now by adopting, fostering, or donating (kitten supplies are much
needed and so are the funds to purchase them).
PAWS is an all-volunteer animal welfare
organization. Founded by the late Esther
Nowell in 1982, PAWS responds to animal-related needs in many communities north
of Boston. Our top service areas include
Wakefield, Lynnfield, Reading, North Reading, Saugus, Stoneham, Woburn,
Winchester, and Malden. Our mission is
to promote and protect the rights and well-being of all domestic animals and
wildlife, and foster a greater understanding of animal welfare and animal rights through
education. PAWS receives no local,
state or federal funding. Our budget is
completely funded by our membership dues, adoption services, annual fundraising
efforts, and kind donations from friends and members.
