SO worth the wait! :)

BREAKING NEWS!  We usually do our adoption/happy tale posts on FURever Home Fridays, but there's just NO WAY we can keep quiet about this for even one minute longer.  Let the happy dancing commence in three... two... one...

After more than two years of waiting -- and of seeing so many other cats in her room come and go -- our sweet, lap-loving pal Petunia has found her forever home!  


When "Toonsie" first arrived in May of 2010, we never imagined it would take this beautiful girl so long to be adopted.  But because it did, we're glad she was at PAWS, where she was well-cared for and much-loved by volunteers and staff alike.  And now she starts the "happily ever after" part of her life, with a home (and laps!) to call her very own. Way to go, Toonsie! :)

Also joining this week's adoption parade were Ladybug, and Gouda and Brie (together).  ConCATulations to all of the PAWS graduates and their new families!

  9. It makes me just hilariously happy to read about Toonsie finding a forever home. I, too, cannot believe it, that such a gorgeous girl had to wait for 2 long years for her forever home, but I guess she just had to find the purrfect people for her. Good luck gorgeous!

  39. We hope Petunia adjusts smoothly to her new home. Two years is a long time but it gives hope to other long timers. Our Gris Gris was almost crazy from pacing in a small room for over a year before he came home with us.
