Monday Musings: Lulu's Paws for PAD Paws

Hi everybody! It's Lulu. Can you tell from my white paws?

This is me on one of my cat shelves. Z-Girl puts a ribbon on one level and I typically pull it down. It's a game we play.

Did you know that 4 years ago my mama Bessie and I were rescued from the streets here in the PAD of Jersey City? Not long after our Great Capture we came to stay with Z-Girl. She was going to foster us but we fell in love with her and she with us so we stayed.

 This is the hole where we lived before our Great Rescue in July of 2011.

This is Mama Bessie (right), with me and my brother the Captain (he lives in a wonderful home elsewhere) after our 26 hour rescue mission. 

Now, Aunt Natalie, Miss Denise and Z-Girl have transformed their rescue team into a non profit called PAD Paws. Their goal is to be a positive solution to the feral cat population in our area and support the same missions across the US, and even the world. Maybe this sounds like a dream. All change starts with a lofty vision. This is just the beginning, furiends.

What's Happening Today @ PAD Paws?

For adoption: 3 kittens who have been fixed, vetted and socialized. Meet Adrian Brody, Anjelica Huston and Audrey Hepburn. They are just over 5 months and almost as cute as I was as a tot. Playful, sweet and ready for furever homes.

Adrian Brody (male, healthy, neutered)
Anjelica Huston (female, spayed, healthy)
Audrey Hepburn (female, spayed, healthy)
They too were born on the streets of the PAD. There are also 4 adult cats who need loving homes. As a former Jersey City street kitty, my mama Bessie wants me to tell you that all cats deserve the same spoils that have been granted to us: safety, softness and full bellies.

If you are unable to adopt at this time donations to help support current and upcoming rescue missions are greatly appreciated.

PAD Paws will have exciting news to share about the progress made by forging partnerships with other local rescue teams and open discussions with the officials in Jersey City.

Thank mew for reading our blog and your continued support.
Lulu, out.

Z-Girl adds: Our readers and our fellow pet bloggers provide much inspiration to our rescue and rehoming efforts. Together we can change the world!


  1. Whoa! I was rescued off the mean streets of Jersey City. Do you know CommuniPAW Avenue? We work with a rescue there although not the one that I came from.

  2. Awww... those kitties are little sweethearts! ...and we love their names!
    Wishing you much success and praying the PAD Paws kitties are adopted into loving forever homes very soon. So much love to give.

  3. What a wonderful thing you are doing and I wish you all the success in the world!

  4. Great work! Some of us were fixed and eartipped as ferals through the Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon here in Portland, OR. Then we decided to adopt humans after all!

  5. Such cuties and I love the names. I hope they get forever homes soon.
