Jean Keiser

Thank you for adopting.

Checkers and Midnight



Checkers is a sweet, playful black and white bobtail who was rescued with his brother and sister, Sophie and Midnight (both bobtails) and now they need their forever homes. Sophie has already been adopted but Midnight is still available.


There is a discount if you adopt two or more, and it would be wonderful if these could be adopted together!

Celia and Cassie

Meet Miss Celia and Miss Cassie. They are adorable eight-week-old calico kittens and just old enough to be adopted. We took in her mother, Bella, when she was pregnant and she had five kittens.

Cassie is the calico and Celia is the tabby. Aren’t they just adorable? Look at those sweet faces. How can anyone resist that?


They both need "forever homes". Please adopt one or better still, two! Contact Jean at and you could be a proud new kitty parent!


Welcome to Paws and Claws Feline Rescue located in Statesville, NC.

We started Paws & Claws Feline Rescue almost two years ago and have saved almost 200 cats and kittens which have been adopted into loving, "forever" homes.  We have also spayed and neutered all the adopted pets, as well as many others for people who could not afford to do so.  Our goal is to continue to save and adopt at least 100 cats and kittens a year and if our resources allow, to help more people to feed, care for, spay and neuter their cats.  The only way to stop overpopulation and killing of thousands of homeless cats and kittens is to educate people to spay and neuter!

We have adoption days at Petco in Mooresville on the first and third Saturdays of each month from noon to 5 pm where people can come and see our cats and kittens.

Here are just a few of our adorable kitties up for adoption.

Fonzi is a beautiful grey and white young kitten who is very sweet and playful. Fonzi was born outside and rescued by a kind couple. He needs a loving forever home. Could that be yours?

Mikayla is a sweet, loving young kitten who was found at a campground. The owners were going to drown her! She was rescued by a kind couple who could not keep her due to allergies.
Mikayla needs her "forever home". Won't you please adopt her?

Sophia is a beautiful white, orange, and black calico cat who was taken in by a kind lady when Sophia was pregnant. She had three adorable Maine Coon mix kittens and fostered two more rescued kittens. They have all been adopted - now Sophia needs her "forever home". Just look at that sweet face - how can you resist?
