Casablanca Cats #CaturdayMovies

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful–

KATIE:  –case of mancat cooties! What are you doing, Waffles???

WAFFLES:  I'm doing my Humphrey Go-Cart impression. 

KATIE:  *sigh* 

WAFFLES:  Of all the milk joints in the world Boss, you walk into mine. 

KATIE:  You took the words right out of my mouth, Waffles. Oh, and good luck with that lactose intolerance of yours.

WAFFLES:  Lack toes? One, two, three, four... I'm not missing any toes, Boss.

KATIE:  You meet all kinds here.

Welcome to Caturday at the Movies with the Shelter Cats!
If you're a regular visitor here on Saturdays, you're probably familiar with our #TVTripCaturday blog series featuring classic TV spoofs and adoptable cats from our friends at PAWS Pet Animal Welfare Society in Norwalk, CT.

Grab your popcorn because we're going to the movies!

Through the magic of Photoshop, an adoptable cat from PAWS will join Waffles and Katie for some cinema-fun as we "catify" our favorite 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.

Today's Cameo Cat: Halo
Beautiful tabby Halo has had a hard knock life in her three short years. If you meet her, she’ll tell you all about it. She loves to talk! First there was life with a hoarder. Then there was a very bad flea infestation (don’t worry, her coat is coming back beautifully). Halo’s luck turned from bad to good when she was brought to PAWS.

Halo would love to be your one and only. She doesn't much like other cats... who can blame her considering all she's been through. Some of the cats at PAWS are caged because they really don't like other felines. Beautiful Halo is one of these. And who can blame her considering all she's been through.

When it's her time to come out of the cage, she leaps straight to the top of the cat tree where the fleece pad is soft and the view is nice. She's ready and waiting for you at PAWS, Pet Animal Welfare Society in Norwalk, CT.

  1. Poor Halo. I hope she gets out of her cage very soon

  2. Poor Halo, being stuck in a cage. I hope she finds her own home soon so she can be cage-free!

  3. The last cat my parents had, Shiimsa, had to be only cat because of how timid and submissive she was. The other cats in her foster home would beat up on her, so she was kept in a three-level cage. When my parents adopted her, once she was certain there weren't any cats around to beat her up, she became quite the sassy little Queen of the Apartment and had my parents wrapped around her paw.

  4. Inspired. Halo you are THE most gorgeous girl!!

  5. We hope Halo finds a forever home very soon. Purrs

  6. Humphrey Go-Cart? Glogirly, you have reached new heights of funny with this one.
    I wish I could talk to the PAWS cats and explain that they could be cage free if they changed their attitude. Even better, I'd like to give them pointers on attracting adopters! But we just have to be thankful that they are in a safe, caring, no-kill shelter for now.

  7. Lack toes....good thing you counted Waffles! Good luck to Halo....

  8. Great movie scene! You two are most talented ;)
    Halo is a mighty fine kitty too.
    We purr she will get her very own home soon.
