PAW Cats of the Month: Phoebe and Ross


Phoebe is a sweet black and white female kitten who was born in late May 2021. Like her sister, Monica, she has a long, sleek, sphinxlike physique draped in shiny black, and white fur. This sweet young lady enjoys spending time lounging by the window, watching the world go by. She is curious and social, trilling and vocalizing softly as she plays with her brother, Ross, or sitting with her foster mom on the couch. She is very attached to her brother Ross. They play and sleep together. We'd like to see them adopted as a pair.

Ross is a beautiful all black male kitten born in late May 2021. His sleek black coat and lean physique makes him look a bit like a sphinx! Ross is very playful and and enjoys playing with his feline friends and with a friendly human. He often trills and vocalizes as he goes about his days - it's super cute!

He can be apprehensive of loud and fast moving humans, so he'd do best in a home without dogs or children.

Ross enjoys pets, especially if you are offering treats at the same time! His favorite is Greenies Tuna flavor. He is up to date on his vaccinations, neutered and tested negative for FIV/FELV.

If you have room in your heart and your home for Phoebe and Ross, please complete PAW’s Cat Adoption Application at www.paw-rescue.org/adopt and we will be in touch!

Thank you for helping Phoebe and Ross find their forever home!

How Maryland and Federal Employees Can Help PAW

Maryland Charity Campaign (MCC): is a workplace charitable giving program that offers State Employees and eligible Retirees the opportunity to contribute to charities using the convenience of payroll deduction. Currently, more than 800 charities participate in the campaign, including PAW.  If you are a MD State employee or eligible retiree and would like to donate to PAW through the MCC, please go to:  https://mcc.maryland.gov/. Thank you!

Combined Federal Campaign (CFC): About 85% of PAW expenses this year will be for veterinary care and boarding for our rescue animals. Our funding is entirely dependent on individual bequests, donations at fundraising events, the website, and the Combined Federal Campaign. CFC is the workplace charitable donation vehicle for active and retired federal employees and contractors, and represents more than 22,000 charities. We receive about 20% of our income through CFC, a 50% decline over recent years. Donations to all CFC charities are down and this year's fundraising atmosphere will be particularly challenging. If we are to continue to rescue, heal, and place animals at our current pace, we need to raise significantly more CFC funds. If you are an active or retired federal employee and would like to donate through CFC, please be sure to speak with your agency CFC coordinator. You can also ask your CFC coordinator to get us an invitation to their charity fair!  CFC events occur primarily between early October and mid-November on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. If you are interested in helping at one of the fairs, please contact Sanjeeta at psanjeeta@gmail.com. You do not need to be a federal employee or retiree to help at the fairs. We really appreciate your help!

From our friends at The Humane Society of the United States....
