    ROCKPORT — Edie came to us with her two little kittens after they were dropped off at someone's house. We found Edie a wonderful foster family where she could nurse her kittens to health in a peaceful and quiet environment. The kittens have been adopted, and now we are hoping to find Edie a forever home.

    This pretty tuxedo-wearing girl is very easygoing, and while being picked up and held is not her all-time favorite thing, her foster mom told us that she is the kind of cat that likes to hang out with you on the couch and just relax and be close to you. Edie will never have to take care of babies again since she, like all our cats here at P.A.W.S., has been spayed. And of course she is also up to date on all her vaccinations.

    When Seth came to P.A.W.S. a few months ago, we really didn't know what to think of him. Except for his head, he was completely hairless. His skin was as red as a lobster, and his nails were about 2-inches long. Obviously he had not been taken care of for a long time, and he was feeling miserable. We made sure Seth got all the medical help he needed, and slowly he started growing into a gorgeous, happy hound.

    Seth is your typical hound: He likes to sniff everyone and everything he sees on his walks, but he thinks cats are a bit scary. Seth could definitely be the kind of dog that likes to work for or with you — maybe go on hunting trips or hang out with you while you work in the yard — but he likes to be busy. And he already knows most of the basic commands.

    Foster families needed: We have a group of great people that take in pregnant cats, mom with kittens and orphans. We wouldn't know what to do without them, and we'd love to have an even bigger list of foster families. We are also looking for foster families that can take in dogs. We don't get pregnant dogs very often, but sometimes we have dogs that need a little bit more socialization. Would you like to take care of a dog once in a while? We'd love to hear from you.

    The nights are getting longer, and our animals are starting to spend the nights curled up on our bed to share the warmth. If you've never had this wonderful experience, maybe now is the time to try it. We have plenty of candidates, so make a date to stop by the shelter at 146 Camden St. in Rockport. We're open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays. Our phone number is 207-236-8702 and our website at pawsadoption.org is always open.
