Meow Like a Pirate Day with Cats of the Caribbean

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! Who turned out me lights???

KATIE:  Do you suppose it's got something to do with that eye patch of yours?

WAFFLES:  Yeah but me ladies think I look hot in me eyepatch.

KATIE:  Anything for fashion.

WAFFLES:  Uh, Boss... speaking of fashion, I think your beard is crooked.

KATIE:  Waffles, if you're trying to impress the ladies, pirates or no pirates, it's best to steer clear of any beard comments.

WAFFLES:  What about beard beads? Can I tell you your beard beads crooked? Because they're crooked.

COOKIE:  I don't know about you, but the one with the big hat and beard beads kind of shivers me timbers.

Happy International Meow Like a Pirate Day!

Today's Cameo Cat
Meet Cookie. This sweetie is four years old and LOVES attention from visitors at the shelter. Cookie spends her days in the office at PAWS and is an excellent supervisor.

She's outgoing and friendly. Cookie is a tortie cat without the famous tortie catitude. 

Do you have room in your heart for this beautiful girl?

Cookie is ready and waiting for you at PAWS of Norwalk, CT.

TV Trip Saturdays with the Shelter Cats!
Every Saturday we feature adoptable cats from PAWS Pet Animal Welfare Society in Norwalk, CT. in our #TVTripCaturday blog series. Through the magic of Photoshop, they join Waffles and Katie for some time-travel adventures to some of our favorite classic TV shows and movies.

We'll also introduce you to the 'Cameo Cats' and share a little bit about them. Maybe, just maybe... our crazy antics will help our shelter friends find forever homes.

Special thanks to Maggie Swanson, the talented photographer behind our cameo cats and a devoted volunteer at PAWS. Maggie is the author of the blog, Sundays at the Shelter, where she features adoptable cats from PAWS each and every week. Her beautiful photos have helped countless cats find loving homes.
