FURever Home Friday - Over the Moon!

When our pal Roger was gotcha’d earlier this month, we promised a more extensive adoption update sometime in the not-too-distant future. We’re excited to say that TODAY is the day for that update!

Each and every time an animal leaves the shelter is cause for celebration, but sometimes there are adoptions that send our hearts soaring. So whose adoption, you’re wondering, has us over the moon?

Our sweet friend, Dottie :)
Beautiful 16 year-old Dottie found her way to PAWS when she was trapped in a feral colony and deemed to be adoptable. Early in her stay at PAWS, she was found to have very advanced glaucoma, precipitating the need to have both of her eyes removed. Despite losing her vision, Dottie kept her sweet disposition and adjusted amazingly well. She was even okay with other mellow cats in her room. Now all that was needed was someone to take a chance on a blind senior kitty. Well … two years later, that someone – our friend and former PAWS volunteer Maureen – is now fostering (with the possibility of adopting) Dottie! Dottie’s new housemates include Rosie, a very mellow cat, and Harvey, a super sweet little dog who also just happens to be blind. Thank you, Mo, and congratulations to you, Dottie, Harvey and Rosie!

Other lucky kitties who found forever homes include:

Stoney, who found his way to PAWS after being found as a stray after Hurricane Sandy

Roger

Scoots and Louie, who were adopted from PAWS as kittens, and came back when their owner was transferred for work out of the country

Here's the full list of all the cats in the most recent PAWS graduating class:

Agnes
Dottie (to foster)
Elvira and Eloise (together)
Eunice
Grayson
Indy
Irwyn
Joe
Mama
Roger
Scoots and Louie (together)
Stoney
Sunny
Tiger (to foster)

And finally, here’s a short "happy tail" from Parsley’s new mommy and daddy:

“At first we thought Parsley was not going to leave her room, and then she became sociable.  We are really enjoying her … thank you for all the work you and the people at PAWS did to make her a happy cat who makes us happy.”

Have a great weekend, everybody! :)

  4. Paws up for all the kitties who found homes - and a BIG high paw to Dottie for being fostered, and maybe adopted soon!

    The Eagle Rock Canyon Trail is right under the Eagle Rock, off of Figueroa. The trail may not have been there when you lived there. I think is was made since my human moved there in 1996
