Facts about Scarlet

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: Orange Or Red (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Long

Scarlet has his claws and is neutered but needs his shots. He has a chronic problem with soft stool, diarrhea and eye discharge. He is currently being treated by a vet for both issues.

Scarlet was one of the first cats I rescued – he’s been in my household since August 2009. Unfortunately, our family is experiencing a terminal illness and I cannot care for Scarlet or his housemates any longer or give them the attention they need and deserve. Giving them up is breaking my heart but it is best for all of them.

Scarlet is a very gentle, loving cat who has nurtured every kitten I have taken in from day one. The kittens gravitate to him for warmth and comfort. Scarlet grooms them and cuddles with them. His favorite activity is sitting on your lap and being petted. He craves attention. He is also a ferocious chaser of lasers and will spin in circles to catch it. He does not like dogs and is shy with people at first. But once he figures out you'll pet him, he warms up quickly.

He gets along with adults and children. He will fight with other male cats if provoked but generally does not instigate fights himself. I believe he can adapt to a home with other male cats as long as those cats are not aggressive, females are fine. Scarlet deserves a loving home with people who can spend quality time with him.

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.
