Cats and Kittens in Need of Homes

If you have an opening in your home and heart, there are several cats and kittens that would love to jump in.

The Public Animal Welfare Society of Ohio is in desperate need of good homes for felines around Northeast Ohio.

Six baby kittens were recently dropped off on the door of an 85-year-old woman in Slavic Village, according to PAWS, which added the kittens were trapped in a box, so the woman called PAWS and they squeezed them into their overburdened foster homes.

In addition, those same foster homes can’t do much more because they are “packed to the brim” with 120 cats already, PAWS said.

The non-profit organization, which is no kill unless an animal is suffering, held an event called “Beat the Heat and Adopt a Cool Cat,” this past weekend where adult cats could be adopted for $10 and kittens under 6 months old for $20.

All felines are spayed/neutered, given shots, tested and wormed, according to PAWS, which has a list of available felines at

PAWS, which found permanent homes for 475 pets in 2010, urges people to adopt before the winter weather hits.

PAWS policy ensures that all animals are spayed or neutered and the potential adopter will be made aware of the animals’ personalities, habits, likes and dislikes in the home environment.
For more information, call PAWS at 440-442-7297 or visit
