Cat Quotables-Cat Said

Cat said, "I am not a friend, and I am not a servant. I am the Cat who walks by himself, and I wish to come into your Cave."

Featured Furry-Sinatra

Mama met a very handsome boy at Wayside Waifs last night. His name is Sinatra and he's a flame-point Siamese. Talk about Old Blue Eyes! This guy has some peepers!

Sinatra, a youngun' at 2 years old, came to Wayside from another shelter. He has had some issues with skin allergies and ended up with a few hotspots. Now that the allergies have cleared up, his fur is filling in where it had been kind of thin.

Sinatra is also FIV positive, but like I have explained before, FIV isn't a big issue. As long as a kitty has regular veterinary check-ups and is kept healthy, he can live a long, normal life.

He is a friendly guy who gets along with other cats. Right now he's rooming with another FIV positive kitty, Scotty. (Look for more info about Scotty soon.)

If you are interested in adopting Sinatra, you should probably act fast. A kitty that handsome won't last long!

Cat Quotables-Different Skies, Different Stars

The greater cats with golden eyes
Stare out between the bars.
Deserts are there, and different skies,
And night with different stars.
-Vita Sackville-West (1892-1962)

Cat Quotables-Cats Walk Thin

Cats sleep fat and walk thin.
Cats, when they sleep, slump;
When they wake, stretch and begin
Over, pulling their ribs in.
Cats walk thin.
-Rosalie Moore

Cat Quotables-Purr

...Sometimes I like her calm, unwild, gentle as a sleeping child, and wonder as she lies, a fur ring, curled upon my lap, unstirring-is it me or Tibbles purring?
-Ian Serraillier
Excerpt from "Miss Tibbles"
