CAT OF THE MONTH
Anyone that says that cats are independent and easy to care for have not met Baloo. This unique boy is nonstop action and demands attention. While other cats are usually taking a mid-morning through afternoon siesta, Baloo is bouncing off walls. Don't let these pictures of him fool you; they were taken at a rare resting moment. In fact, if a fly or moth happens to enter your home, it won't be there long as Baloo is quite the acrobat and has caught many in mid flight. Having a hamster style cat wheel and an outside catio would be just some of the many recommendations for this boy. While it is advised that Baloo be the only animal in a home, he does well with cats that are not dominant but are confident and do not take any guff either. Due to his enthusiasm for play and the fact that he can play a bit rough, it is also advised that he not go to a home with young children. Baloo also has a slight heart murmur which is a condition that needs to be monitored. It hasn't affected his health and was noticed during a routine exam.

Shores of the Mitten Animal Rescue and Transport (dba SMART Paws) is an animal rescue in the Great Lakes Bay region of Michigan that was established in 2015. As a rescue, we are currently operating in foster-based homes and are limited solely by the number of homes we have available. In addition to increasing our ability to take in and care for animals that we plan on placing in suitable, loving homes, our long term goal is to build a sanctuary for animals that require lifetime care and protection. Currently we are expanding our foster network, building relationships with other rescues and shelters, developing community education outreach programs, and providing rehabilitation services for wildlife that we are allowed by state law to take in. In our sanctuary, we plan to design and create environments that are optimal for the individual needs of animals with plenty of human interaction and lots of space to explore, play, and rest. We will also focus on sound animal nutrition and optimal health care practices. SMART Paws is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
