Meet North!

A Gentle Giant…

North arrived at PAWS this winter in need of some major TLC. While most of North’s injuries were superficial, a traumatic injury to his eye had left him in constant pain and with limited vision. 

After visits to specialists, a surgery, and a recovery, North has one less eye but dozens of new friends in every PAWS staff member and volunteer who has had the pleasure of meeting him. 

Affectionate, friendly, and not deterred by his own size, North is ready to be a loving lap cat. He so enjoys attention that he will lean into anyone in the room politely requesting head pats.

His friendly nature extends beyond humans to other cats, and he has made an excellent roommate to many of the kitties of PAWS.

For any family prepared for a cat of his size, North with make a loyal friend and cuddly companion for years to come.
