‘Curious’ kitten Houdini still in need of a loving home

FORT KENT, Maine — PAWS Animal Welfare Society presents Houdini as PAWS Pet of the Week in hopes that this little cat will find his forever home.

Meet Houdini — a kitten with tuxedo coloration and stunning bright white whiskers — who was rescued from a feral cat colony as a very young kitten. He was very scared of humans, but he is slowly making progress. Houdini is approximately 5-months-old now and still very playful and curious.

Houdini is neutered, brought up-to-date on his vaccinations and cleared of any parasites. If you are interested in seeing him, please visit Valley Cat Haven during open hours 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, 1-3 p.m. Tuesday or call Jean at 207-543-7348 for an appointment.

PAWS is a nonprofit organization that rescues abandoned cats in the St. John Valley. Organization members believe most pets can be socialized and prefer not to release them back outdoors, as winters are harsh in Northern Maine. PAWS operates as a no-kill shelter. Its mission is to get owners to spay and/or neuter their animals to help cut down on the population and give all animals a better chance at a quality life.

PAWS Animal Welfare, Inc. spays, neuters and vaccinates mature animals before they are made available for adoption.

To find out more about adopting a cat from PAWS or how you can help the paws cause, visit or call 207-543-7348.
