Friend Of The Week – Shelter Cats


Today I’d like to introduce you to one of the most selfless women you’ll ever meet. Her name is Maggie and for as long as I can remember, she’s been spending her Sunday mornings at PAWS – the world-renown no-kill shelter in Norwalk, CT – and serving as a volunteer to the precious residents who are awaiting a permanent home!

Maggie uses her superpowers to connect with the kitties (it’s evident that she’s an incredible cat-whisperer with the ability to put even the most feral of felines at ease!) and take amazing photos that captures the spirit and personality of these cats so purr-fectly that you can’t help but want to take each and every one of these kitties into your home!

This we visited her magical blog, Shelter Cats, and fell in love with “Reckless” – a sweet, precious girl whose parents “recklessly” abandoned her outside of a vet’s office! Fortunately, she’s found her way to PAWS where she’s being lavished with love, play and attention until someone claims “Reckless” for their very own!

Takers, anyone?

Reckless isn’t the only cat you’ll fall in love with on Maggie’s blog. This week, I invite you to visit Maggie – explore her blog and meet the cats that capture her heart – then share the love and congratulate her for being our Friend Of The Week at Friendship Friday at Create With Joy!

  9. Thanks for hosting again this week. I always enjoy your cat photos. I’m a cat lover but have a couple of grandchildren who are very allergic. But I miss having a cat around the house!

    We love Maggie and her blog, and are so proud that she is our friend and fellow PAWS volunteer! Thank you for featuring her, Ramona, and for hosting Friendship Friday. Hugs to you and the boys!

  14. God Bless Maggie and the work she does. We need more people in the world like here. What a wonderful person.

    Thanks for hosting and I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend.

  15. Maggie surely is a great person and, like many shelter volunteers, unsung and undoubted heros for all that is done to help those in need. I don’t get to visit her and other blogs as often as I would like, but support anyone who advocates and supports cats across the globe from US–UK–NZ and all places in between!
