Welcome to this week's cats of the week! All of these cats are adoptable from local Kansas City shelters. Best not to keep them waiting--they've got their bags packed and are ready to move in. Just click on their links to learn more about them and maybe set up a meeting.
First up is a little kitten named Celestia, brought to us by the folks at T.A.R.A. (The Animal Rescue Alliance). You can meet Celestia in person at the Ward Parkway PetSmart. Wouldn't that make for a fun night out? Looking at kittens, maybe grab dinner at Five Guys or Smitty's.
Celestia is about five months old and is a playful, sweet little girl. She loves people, almost as much as she loves her three brothers and sisters. Maybe adopt them all if you're up for some wild times. She's as affectionate as can be and has the makings of a stellar adult cat. A note of caution though: she's a climber so you might want to secure your knick knacks.
Why not go down to PetSmart and meet Celestia? She'd love a visit. You can learn more about her here.
Next up, from Cats Pawjamas, is a little kitten named Pierre. Is Pierre the sweetest cat that could be? Oui oui! He's a four-month-old tabby who is very affectionate, full of purrs and head bops. If you have other cats or dogs, Pierre would fit right in. He's showed himself to be a social little guy, getting along with everyone, regardless of their species. In fact, it would be ideal if you already have cats for Pierre to play with. If not, Cats Pawjamas has you covered--his brother Aerin is available to adopt too.
Given that we're in the Paris of the Plains, wouldn't Pierre be the perfect cat? He is, in fact ,the "Champs de Kittiés." Here's one more pic of Pierre, to show his more serious side:

Next, from Great Plains SPCA, is Ren. Ren is a tiny cat, at about six pounds and young still at just over two years old.
If you follow these posts, you might remember Denny, the cross-eyed black cat from last week. Ren and Denny are best buds if you are interested in adopting a pair of kitties. Here there are, finding fame on Great Plains SPCA's Instagram:
It looks like Ren has found her Stimpy (yes, unlike the cartoon, Ren is a girl). If you only have room for one cat, I'm sure they'd be okay separating, knowing the other has found a new, swanky crib. They sure look cute together though.
You can contact Great Plains SPCA about Ren here.
Gwen and Echo
Speaking of adopting pairs of cats, Meowy Matchmakers have a bonded mom and daughter pair, Gwen (mom) and Echo (daughter) that are looking to be adopted together. Gwen is around two, and her daughter, Echo, is around five months. These two would be good for a cat lover who is up for a bit of a challenge. They were found on the streets of KCK, had a tough life, and will take a while to trust build trust in their new family. It will be particularly important to start them off slowly, in a small room until they feel comfortable exploring.
Gwen sounds like she's a little bit more trusting than Echo but both will likely be shy at first. Once you break through, you'll have a couple of great, appreciative cats on your hands. As someone who has a very shy cat that had a difficult past, I can attest that it is incredibly gratifying when you see them happy, playing, and purring. It is very much worth the effort.
Here's another pic of Gwen:

Our final cat of the week is Blum, a young, two-year-old mom from the Friends of Parkville Animal Shelter. Like Gwen and Echo, she's had a tough life, and lived outside for almost a year before she was taken into the shelter with her litter of kittens. In fact, they thought she was a feral cat at first, having spent so much time without a home, but turns out she's very social and sweet.
Blum has been in the shelter for almost a year now, so it would be great if she could find a home sooner rather than later. She would certainly "bloom" in a loving home, maybe yours?
Fill out a pre-adoption form here to learn more about Blum and maybe even set up a date to meet with her. It may just be love at first sight.
That's all for this week. Interested in seeing more cats? You can always check out my profile for past entries. Many are still available!
