Really Thankful Thursday

We really love being bearers of good news. After all, what’s not to love about sharing exciting adoption news, and passing along happy tales from the families of PAWS “graduates?” :)

Those of you who’ve been following our blog for a while may remember Nemo, the cute, energetic orange and white tabby with the neurological disorder and wobbly gait. Well, after more than a year of waiting, Nemo has found the perfect home! His new humans say "... he's doing great. There was no adjustment necessary. Nemo walked all over the apartment and just settled right in. He sleeps on our bed at night.” Hooray for Nemo!

Here are some more “feel good” follow-up stories:

Frenchie is doing great! She's actually sleeping on the couch next to me right now, and took no time at all to get comfortable with us. She still gets scared with new people, but when it's just us, she rules the house. She loves sitting with us, getting lots of attention, playing and running around the house. Her latest ‘thing’ is sitting in front of the glass doors to our back yard, and watching the birds fly around.”

“We adopted Hassie about a year ago, and she is perfect. We love her so much, and she has been a great addition to our family. Without your help, we wouldn't have had all of the good times that Hassie has brought us. She still loves to play with her hand toy that has all of the strings attached. We give her a little treat of salmon once in a while and she LOVES it! Thank you so much for bringing her into our lives and keeping her happy while she was at PAWS.”

After a few weeks of adjustment, say Murray’s forever people, he really came around. Now that he’s used to his new home, this handsome boy, “… sleeps with us, and licks our ears in the middle of the night. He is incredibly sweet … just a doll of a cat.”

Carrie is fantastic! She is totally happy with us, and we are totally happy with her. She settled in immediately and became the alpha cat, something our other cat seems fine with.”

Olivia is doing beautifully. After a bit of hissing, she and our other cat are getting along fine. Olivia is a really sweet kitty, and loves to be petted. We really love her and think she is perfect!”

Ishma's people say that, "Ishma is living the good life," and sent us the picture below to prove it! :)

And if you need some MORE reasons to smile, the following kitties were also adopted since our last adoption update: Apollo and Lindsey, Bode, Derek and Andy, Jax, Jenny, Juno, Mischief, Peppermint Patty and Sally, Pete, Sashimi, Sassafras, Schroeder, Shaun, Shirley, Snoopy, Tina, Timmy, Tommy, and Twitter.

Enjoy your forever homes, kitty friends. We love you! :)

  31. Mom is back and helping me to come and see you.

    Mom andI are so glad that these babies have a happy forever home. Mom gets all leaky at the eyes when she sees the kitties in the shelter, so here where you are, all is well and good. That makes Mom and me so happy.

    Love,
