Facts about Chiquita & McCloud

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Calico Or Dilute Calico
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Chiquita is a one year, four-month old dilute calico female cat. She was found in a neighborhood that contained 60 cats in a two block radius. Chiquita was pregnant, thin and petite, and her outdoor life was dodging rocks being thrown at her or avoiding kicks aimed at her. Chiquita lost two of her babies because of this stress. She was a great mom to her other four, and shared them with her foster mom. When she returned to us, we could see her sadness and loneliness. We put her in with McCloud, a two-year-old grey and white male cat. It was love at first sight for the two of them, and they have bonded tightly. McCloud’s story is as sad as Chiquita’s. He wandered into a backyard, where the kindly resident was feeding him. McCloud disappeared for two weeks, and when he managed to get back to the yard, the resident could see he was seriously injured, so he came to us. McCloud unfortunately was on the wrong side of a vehicle, and his jaw was fractured in numerous places, so bad he couldn’t chew food, and he was skin and bones. He had so many cuts, scabs and abscesses on his body he had to be shaved to treat his wounds. And now…now McCloud is a trip! You would never know what this poor boy suffered, he is so happy and comfortable in his new life. He eats with great appetite, and loves attention. He will talk a mile a minute to you, and rolls over waving his paws. He then bounds up to come directly to you for some good old fashioned cuddling and scratching. He has the cutest face, with an earnest expression and an adorable patch on his nose. These two are a pair!

At PAAWS RI, all of the cats that come into our care are spayed/neutered, receive a rabies vaccination, distemper vaccinations, de-worming, flea treatment, microchipping, and testing for Feline Leukemia/FIV.

About PAAWS RI

About Our Shelter...

The mission of PAAWS RI is to provide services to Rhode Island’s most vulnerable populations of animals, through two specific programs.

The first part of our mission is to maintain a shelter/rescue program. Stray and abandoned animals have limited options for treatment through traditional veterinarians and shelters.

PAAWS RI will fill this gap with our shelter/rescue program and provide these homeless animals with shelter, medical care and rehabilitation. Once these animals are returned to
optimal health they will be adopted out to their forever home.

Many cats and dogs are suffering with easily treatable problems because affordable veterinary care is unavailable. We will fill that void with our program to provide funding for medical and surgical services. Recipients of these subsides will be animals belonging to low-income pet owners and shelter groups. Services include preventative and sick animal care, surgical and dental procedures, vaccinations and spay/neuter surgeries.
