Will you adopt this sweet cat?
My name is Lightning and I am a stunning, young cat who is more than ready to get some me time. I don’t know why they call me Lightning, because if I am fast, it is only because I have been dashing after kittens. Babies, babies, babies, oh my. Mine were lovely, but I am so done with being a mother. Now I want someone to mother me. What do I mean by mothering me? Well, I love to be patted. I love to be scratched behind my ears and stroked from my neck all the way down to my tail. I am so sleek and smooth your hand will glide right over me like, well, like lightning. Maybe we can even make a few sparks on dry days. When we meet, I hope you will take the time to get to know me because I can be shy at first. But once I have scoped you out, I …

Will you adopt this friendly cat?
My name is Winter, but I am not the least bit like that season. I am all spring, sweet and happy and loving, the kind of kitty who will sit on your lap and purr and purr. The kind of girl who likes to be scratched, rubbed, and petted in all those good cat spots (ears, chin, neck, etc.). In this very cold end of January, I am a tiger who will bring a lot of warmth into your home. Did I say tiger? Not a real one silly! I am actually a torbie because of my range of colors (orange, brown, grey, cream) mixed with tiger stripes. Did I mention I am young? Maybe 8 months old. Some would say that is an awkward age, stuck between childhood and adulthood. But I would say it is the perfect age. I have all the energy and fun of a kitten, but I am …

If you're a regular reader of Wakefield Patch, you may remember seeing a few articles about Orsini, an orange and white cat in search of a home. Orsini was being fostered by a volunteer with PAWS, a non-profit organization in Wakefield dedicated to finding homes for homeless animals, particularly cats. He was first featured in February of 2011, and it wasn't until a year later when he was featured again on the site that he found a home in Wakefield. Wakefield resident Wendy Dennis said she knew right away she wanted to adopt Orsini when she heard he was having trouble finding a home. "I saw his picture on the Patch and it looked like he had a big nose, but it said he was okay with dogs," she said. "I'm always rooting for the under dog." …

Tiny could be your lucky cat.
When you meet Tiny, you will immediately notice two things about her: her petite physique and her uncanny resemblance to a Maneki Neko, the Japanese cat with its big eyes and waving paw. This figurine is thought to bring luck (fortune and/or money) to its owner. Tiny is the PAWS version of the Lucky Cat. She is sweet, petite, adorable, and the omen of wonderful things to come for all who are near her. Tiny came to PAWS from a difficult situation. She lived with her first family from birth. But, when they adopted a dog, it terrified Tiny. So she was banished to the basement, where she lived for many years. When PAWS came to meet her, poor Tiny was scared, dirty, and depressed. Now that Tiny is safe with her dog-less foster family, this …
