Sissy Cat Green Eyes: The Paws Report, 2/19


Today at 3:30 for The Paws Report:
This is Sissy, an eight-year-old gray and white Tabby with amazing aquamarine-colored eyes. Sissy came to the Kentucky Humane Society when her owner lost her home. Sissy had severe dental disease, so she’s missing a few teeth, which causes her tongue to stick out in an endearing way. In addition to her beautiful eyes and silly tongue, Sissy wins over everyone she meets with her sweetness. The moment you stop by Sissy’s cage door, she starts purring, so happy that you have stopped by for a visit. She will lean her whole body into a good pet, letting your hand stroke her from nose to tail. Sissy is pretty laid back and doesn’t care nearly as much about toys as she does about hanging out with you. She wants to be with you and be a part of your family. We hope you can find a way to let her join you. Sissy is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. Come meet this sweet lady at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville. View all adoptable pets online at or call 502-366-3355 for more information.

Lucy: The Paws Report, Feb. 12


The star of The Paws Report today at 3:30pm is Lucy, a four-year-old Jack Russell terrier mix who was rescued from a puppy mill in January. Before she was rescued, she lived in a small pen in an overcrowded shed and received little human interaction. Now at the Kentucky Humane Society, Lucy is eager to please and enjoys gentle attention. When you approach her in her kennel, she seems to be saying “Just give me a chance, I will be a good girl, I just need you to take it slow and let me learn how to accept your attention and love.” You can tell she wants to come out of her shell now and needs the right kind of person to be patient and understanding of what she has been through. While she is a little fearful of new things and loud noises, she seems indifferent to other dogs and really wants to be in a home with experienced animal people and kids over five years of age who understand her needs and sensitivities. Lucy is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations. Please come visit her today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive, Louisville.
