PAWS (Protection of Animals in Wakefield Society) is an all-volunteer, non-profit animal welfare organization serving several communities north of Boston.
Striker is my name, but sweetness is my game. That is right, I am a beautiful, adorable, handsome, sweet, funny, and loads of fun. Oh, I am also a very modest guy, so I won’t toot my own horn. I will just let you look at my pictures. I can be goofy, or serious, or very chill as you can see. That is me, all me.
Ok, I am not a small guy. But hey, there is lots of me to love. I like my kibble and I like it often. I will sit, patiently shifting my weight from right to left and squinting my eyes at you until you get the message and give me a treat. I want your attention, true. But, I want that treat even more, thank you very much.
I also love, love, love to be held. If you pick me up, I will wrap my big fuzzy paws around your neck and give you a big hug. If you tap on the floor, I will come to you, roll over and show off my lovely belly. Whoever called my belly chubby surely does not recognize a purrfect feline six-pack. Well, whatever, I do like a tummy scratch. I mean you scratching me—never the other way around.
I am the total package: an easy going, happy guy with a sense of fun and the charisma of a movie star. If you don’t pay attention to me I will do goofy things until you notice me. Of course, as much as I enjoy all that attention, I can also take care of myself when you are busy. But, please, if you aren’t otherwise occupied, let’s pal around.
Having lived in a home with other cats, I can blend in with your current kitties (although, I will be your favorite in no time, I assure you). I love people, so I’m certain I will love everyone in your household and all your friends, too (as long as they worship me, which is only to be expected). Or I can be your one and only (all the more attention for me, me, me!).
Ok, so I am not modest, after all. But I am wonderful and I am sure you will agree as soon as we meet. I am at PAWS adoption center at the Danvers PetSmart. So get over here and worship (I mean meet) me as soon as possible.
