SPECIAL NEEDS RESIDENTS

Lola

Sponsors: Paul Coffin, Jim Rohrbach

Birthday: 20 April 2011

History: I came here with Hooter.  My Mom was killed, and I was her only surviving kitten.  However, I didn't get enough oxygen when I was younger, so I have a neurological problem... my brain says to go straight, but my legs take the long way!

About Me: I am Jim's favorite, but I love everyone to the max, and they love me right back.  I am a very happy girl!

Favorite Song: "Somebody to Love" by Queen

Fan Of: Sally Field

Hooter

Sponsors: Deb Nye, Maggie Majernik

Birthday: 26 November 2005

History: I motored over to P.A.W.S. from a local campground along with Lola in the summer of 2014.  I have IBS and need special medical support in order to keep it in check.

About Me: I LOVE the senior ladies, and I've mastered the art of giving "love" eyes!  I'm also very fond of yogurt because it tastes yummy and helps my tummy.

Favorite Song: "You Are So Beautiful" by Joe Cocker

Fan Of: Cary Grant

Sammy

Sponsors: Lora Vetter, Bill and Kelli Wilshire

Birthday: 27 October 2004

History: I am one of Miss Barbara's original kitties, so I'm getting a little long in the tooth.

Favorite Song: "Sittin' On the Dock of the Bay" by Otis Redding

Fan Of: Angelina Jolie

Bob

Sponsors: Melissa M, Jason B, Ronda Freeman

Birthday: 16 September 2012

Favorite Song: "Kokomo" by The Beach Boys

Fan Of: Leonardo DiCaprio

Mimi

Sponsors: Donna Mason

Birthday: 19 June 2002

About Me: I'm another "Sassy Six" Girl!  Word has it that I can be both a boy and a girl, so I'm the most unique kitty at P.A.W.S."

Fan Of: Keira Knightley

Fan Of: Jennifer Lawrence

Betty White
