Sisters Teresa and Michelle were abandoned at the shelter by their owner, nursing and fiercely protecting each other’s babies. We would like them to be adopted together because they have bonded by now. Michelle is a very beautiful piebald cat with a mask-and-mantle pattern. Her fur is longer than some of her pictures that were taken right after a trip to the groomer. She grows long white wisps of fur that peak out beyond the shorter layers, it is so beautiful and she gets a lot of attention at adoption events. It mats easily so she needs a trip to the groomer once a year. She loves to purr loudly and be petted. She is very verbal, she meows loudly. Try meowing at her through the cage at adoptions, she will meow back loudly which amazes people. Get this: When you go to bed Michelle likes to lay on your head as if pinning you down and then ream your ear out with her nose. See how long you can stand it. If you put her aside she’ll stop. She used to do that to her kittens. She likes to sit in boxes or sleep in cat beds with a little quilt on top. She’ll sleep on your bed or your pillow too. She is not destructive. She uses the litter box but I put one litter box inside a bigger one so she doesn’t hang her butt over the side and miss. She likes rectangular cat scratchers on the floor with catnip. She is OK with kids, cats, and eventually dogs. They like Purina One Smart Blend chicken and turkey dry cat food, with canned pate Friskies for a treat.

Come Meet Our Pets...

CAWS does not have a conventional shelter facility - all CAWS animals waiting for adoption are in foster homes. The number of animals we can help find new homes for is closely linked to how many CAWS foster homes are available. For additional information regarding how you, too, can become a foster, please see our fostering page located on our web site!

CAWS volunteers bring cats and dogs to the PetSmart near 2100 South and 300 West in South Salt Lake on the third and fourth weekends of each month

We are also at the Sugarhouse PETCO (1165 Wilmington Ave) the first Saturday of each month.
