Pawswatch Community Cat Center

The Smithfield Times Magazine and the PawsWatch Community Cat Center are working together to find loving homes for kitties that are currently living in their shelter. Here are their stories:


MIRABELLA: Meet marvelous Mirabella! This little lady packs a huge personality punch. She is just over two years old and has a swirly brown and black tabby coat with beautiful green eyes. Her journey since her arrival to the cat center doors has been a long road. At first this girl was so untrusting, unsure and simply not ready to let her guard down. However, with a bit of time combined with all the love and encouragement from our volunteers, Mirabella has blossomed into a comfortable, curious kitty that likes to roam, sneak a cat nap or two, or partake in some serious playtime when she’s in the mood. Mirabella is a chatty talker at times, welcoming of pets and would make a great companion to the right home.


TUX: Say hello to the terrific Tux! If he could only talk, oh what a story he’d have to tell. This beautiful, sweet gentle soul just wants to be loved. Like many of the cats who are luckily enough to make it to our cat center, their life on the streets prior to arrival was lonely, all about survival and certainly not promised. Tux is a super handsome two-year-old FIV positive former “street cat”…but don’t let the scars fool you! This enchanting black and white furred boy is all about the love. He will want to receive all the pets you have to give, headbutt your hand and be close to you. Tux enjoys treats, interactive playtime and a cozy spot to sleep which will most likely be by your side. An absolute joy to be around, Tux will make your heart smile. 

MAMA SPICE & SCARY SPICE: Introducing the mother and daughter ‘dynamic duo’ in search of their very own forever home. Mama Spice is approximately three and a half years old and has tested positive for FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus). She is a nice cat with good manners and can be a bit shy and reserved around people. She lives in her foster’s home with her kitten, Scary Spice. Scary Spice is a one-year-old, friendly, adventurous kitty. Scary Spice is a very interactive, talkative gal who likes to be in the middle of everything and will seek your attention. Scary Spice is delightful and sure to make her future adopters laugh each and every day. Mama Spice has a great bond with Scary Spice and it would be amazing to be able to adopt them together. Potential adopters should understand FeLV and note that this mama and daughter pair should be the only cats in the home or can live with other FeLV positive kitties.
