Facts about BW

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black & White Or Tuxedo
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
BW is one of three cats (believed to be siblings) who spent their first few months living on a porch. BW, along with her brother Shadow and sister Elizabeth, were rescued after concerns that one or more of them may be being harmed by humans in the area.

She spends her day with her brother and sister, cuddling and playing with the scratch pad. She loves to sit by a window to look out, and is very fond of the round cat bed she sleeps in (often with either her brother or sister). She is very inquisitive and is the first to explore new things.

BW is still somewhat shy of humans. While reluctant to be the one to initiate contact with people, she will allow you to pick her up and pet her. Just like her siblings, she requires patience and time to adjust to new people. She hasn’t had any interaction with dogs, gets along beautifully with her brother and sister, and expresses positive interest in the other cats in her foster home.

Approx. birth date: April or May 2015

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.
