Important Note

Samantha is best friends with Eorr. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Courtesy Post for Karen Mattison: I have two cats approximately 4 years old male and female, male is a shorthaired tiger cat Brown Tan and black. The female cat is black with no markings. They have been around children and are fine with them.

They are not suited to be around other animals as they have grown up there entire life only around Humans, They are very affectionate so log as you treat them with kindness and love as they deserve. In time they will love to be around you and cuddle into your lap and rest while you go on about your relaxing parts of your life.

Even when you lay down to sleep they will jump up on the bed with you and lay right up against you or on the corners.

They are both front declawed and fixed. These cats are in-door ONLY. I would prefer to have them go to a home together since they are brother and sister and have been raised together.

If possible, I would like to stay in contact with said cats because they are my family and it is hard enough having to do this.

If interested, please contact Karen Mattison at 440-223-3840 or by email at

About Public Animal Welfare Society (PAWS Ohio)

About Our Rescue Group...

The Public Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) was founded in 1976. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization considered to be one of Ohio’s most reputable long-standing cat and dog humane rescue groups.

Our group is dedicated to the rescue of pets in Northeastern Ohio. Our mission is to rescue stray and/or abused cats and dogs and place them in good homes. It is a PAWS policy to adopt animals to responsible homes only in the greater Cleveland area. We provide medical care to rescued animals and foster them in our own homes. We also make sure that they are spayed or neutered so that they do not continue the cycle of births that result in more pets than homes. The advantage of adopting a fostered animal is that we know all about our adoptable pets! They have lived with us and we know their personalities, habits, likes and dislikes. We can help you find the perfect companion for your home and lifestyle! We are a no kill organization (the only time we euthanize is on the advice of a vet in order to end suffering where no hope of recovery exists). Everything we do is out of love for the animals.

PAWS philosophy is that kindness to animals helps build a better world for all of us. Through the generosity of other caring individuals, we can ensure that animals who come into the care of PAWS will never again be alone, hungry, sick, afraid, or in pain.

Our mission is
•To provide for the welfare, medical care, temporary housing, and adoption of dogs and cats in northeast Ohio.
•To Work for the prevention of cruelty to all animals.
•To work to form coalitions and working relationships with other local and national humane organizations.
•To actively create, promote and implement a humane education program.
•To reduce the over population of cats and dogs in northeast Ohio through education.
