PAWS Cat City

by Jennifer Astion

If you are a cat lover, one of the best places to walk in the U District is on Roosevelt where you can spend a moment in front of the windows of PAWS Cat City, a shelter for homeless felines. “We love being in the U District because we get a lot of foot traffic,” explains Cat City Manager Rebecca Oertel. Cat City moved to the U District in the spring of 2011. The shelter has three home-like rooms where cats can explore and play. When you go through the process of adopting a cat, you can also spend time one on one with a cat in a private room. Even if you are not planning to bring a pet home, you can support the work of PAWS in other ways. Shop for toys and cat supplies at Cat City.  Or donate directly to PAWS on their website. PAWS Cat City is open daily except Wednesdays. 5200 Roosevelt Way NE Suite B, Seattle, WA 98105, 206.782.1700.
