FURever Home Friday

Oh, happy day!  We have some exciting adoption news to share!

We love ALL of the cats at PAWS, but every so often, one touches our hearts in a special way.  When Praline first came to the shelter, Tracey and I were reminded of our sweet Maggie, who went to the Bridge in March 2011. (We even nicknamed her “Little Maggie.”)  It made us sad that Praline had already been a mommy, even though she was less than two years old.  We were also sad that even though all her kittens had been adopted, this little cutie was still looking for her forever home. With her volunteer pals, she loved cuddles, nice warm laps, and playing.  When, we often wondered, would an adopter come and see what we saw, and fall in love with her (just as we had)?

Hooray! I've been adopted!
Well, “when” finally happened last week!  Yes, sweet Praline has officially been adopted!  We don’t yet have a lot of details, but will share any follow up information with you all. :)

Do you remember Pete, the super-sweet, 7-year old mancat who loves snuggles, petting and playing like a kitten?  Well, he’s been adopted by our fellow volunteer Maria and her family!  Maria recently shared this picture of Pete on his new favorite counter top perch. She says Pete “…is a real character, and we’re crazy about him already!” Yay, Pete! :)
Me, too!

Here’s the full list of the most recent PAWS graduates:
Carolina and Dakota (together)
Chickie and Peeps (together)
Connie and Yoli (together)
Freckles
Georgia
Hayley
Mandy
Morticia
Pete
Praline

And what adoption update would be complete without some “Happy Tails?”

Yummy!
You probably remember Pepper, the cat who won “Best Picture” in the 2010 Petfinder.com “Whisker Awards.”  She’s doing SO well in her forever home.  Here's a picture her mom shared with us.  As you can see, Pepper likes pancakes!  We’re told her mom and dad are utterly in love with her, and that she is pampered like the queen we always knew she was.  Pepper’s mom “combs her all the time, and rubs her belly, too.” She also says that Pepper wants nothing more than to be in her lap.

Maguire, adopted in October, is now named Wexler.  His family reports that he is “…doing really well, and that he sleeps in bed every night with mom and dad.  He is very sweet, and a real lap cat. He likes to play, and is good with our children.  If they get to be too much, Wexler just walks away.”

Let the happy dancing begin, and have a great weekend, everybody! :)
