Facts about Mindy

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tiger Striped
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Mindy is a 10-month-old brown and black tiger female cat. Mindy was found wandering an inner-city street, very pregnant, very tired, and very hungry. She came to us, and had her seven kittens shortly thereafter. We have no idea how the kittens all survived, because Mindy was so petite and in such rough shape from trying to survive outside. But Mindy was determined her little ones would make it, and as poor a condition she was in herself, she sprang into action and nursed them and cared for them, and what a mom she was! Now that her babies are secure and safe in their forever homes, it’s Ms. Mindy’s turn! Mindy likes attention, and loves for you to pet her. You can see the relief in her face that she is not struggling to eat and stay safe. But if you look deeper, you can see Mindy’s vulnerability and fear of the future lingering there. We’ve told her life will always be so much better, and when she finds her forever home, it’s going to be the best, so hang in there. Her family’s coming, they just need a bit of time to get there. Are you that family?


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.

Come Meet Our Pets...

PAAWS RI is located within the veterinary clinic, Care For Animals. You can meet our pets for adopiton during regular business hours.
