Facts about Cheyenne

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Beautiful Cheyenne is one of a pair of twin feral kittens who were trapped along with their mother behind a Western-themed restaurant, so she was named after the city in Wyoming. The feral mom was spayed and released again, and the other kitten proved too wild to tame, but Cheyenne showed early interest in becoming an indoor cat.

She greets her foster mom with extravagant cuddles and purrs every morning at breakfast time, and leads her foster family members around the house with her tail up like a guide. She loves to race around with other cats in the foster home and even picks up toys in her claws to throw across the room so she can chase them!

However, she is very suspicious of strangers, which makes it difficult to show off her sweet qualities to potential adopters. Her new family will need to let her get over her fears and adjust to her new home before she will be her friendly, cuddly self with them.

She would be a good companion for another cat or an excellent only pet. She has not met any dogs but is confident enough that she could probably handle being around one.

Cheyenne was born around mid-September 2015. She is spayed, up-to-date on shots, and tested negative for FIV/FeLV. She knows her special person is out there waiting to give her a forever home.

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.
