Hooray for Ilona!

Look up the definition of "lap cat" in the dictionary, and you just might find a picture of sweet Ilona. That's why we're especially happy to tell you that Ilona has found some laps (and people to go with them!) of her very own. We'll really miss her!

It's especially gratifying to know that ending up at PAWS allowed Ilona to find her forever home. Even though she had a bunch of strikes against her (she was found wandering around on the streets ... she's about 10 years old ... she's had some weight-related health issues...), the staff and volunteers at PAWS took Ilona in, cared for her and loved her with the belief that there was a good home out there for her. Well, even though it took more than a year, that home has been found. :)

You may think that Ilona is a pretty lucky cat, but we think her new family is even luckier to have found her.

So long, Ilona. We love you!

I am so happy for Ilona. I am rather fond of lap cats myself, so I am really happy for her new family, too.
