FINALLY FURever Home Friday :)

Have you heard the mind-boggling statistic about black cats being only half as likely to be adopted than cats of other colors? And that on average, their stays in shelters are several months longer than those of other cats? We've certainly seen this time and again at PAWS with cats like super sweet Allie, who had been here since October of 2010. Allie had come very close to being adopted a few times, but until recently was still waiting and hoping for her very own happily-ever after.  Well, guess what?


BEAUTIFUL HOUSE PANTHER ALLIE HAS FINALLY FOUND HER FOREVER HOME! :)

Her new mommy (PAWS volunteer Laura) says: "Allie is doing well. She is a sweetie pie. We are so happy we got her! and so happy we are able to give her a loving home. She was introduced to the upstairs, next it will be our other 2 black kitties we have."

Much love to you and your forever family, Allie.  We are over the moon for you all!

Big congratulations are also in order for Crazy Horse, Gus, Oliver (from foster), and Peanut, who were also adopted!

  4. I am super happy for sweet and beautiful Allie! I don't get people who won't look at a cat for adoption just because she or he is black. I volunteer at the shelter and frankly, I only fall for the cat's personality, be it black, white, young, old... And to be completely hones, I LOVE them ALL!

  18. Very happy for Allie!!

    It is really sad that the black kitties get passed over for adoption. That's how I got my Mickey -- I was helping a friend find homes for his mistake-kittens, and no one wanted the black one! So of course I had to adopt him, and he's a wonderful boy.

  24. Mommy says that she never understands this about black kitties. She says it must be superstition. She loves black kitties and would adopt everyone of them that needed a home if Dad would let her. Cocatulations to Allie and her new family as well as to all the other adoptees. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  26. What wonderful news for Allie! We hate foolish superstitions, especially when it comes to animal welfare and it is so encouraging to hear of positive adoption stories. Purrs from the Zee and Zoey gang

  28. Yay Allie! I love her black furs. So sad she didn't have a real home for that long, but glad that someone finally took her in!

  30. As a proudly black kitty myself, I am super happy to hear that Allie got herself a furever home! Hip hip hooray! XOXOXOXO

  31. We can't understand how anybody who claims to love kitties could even THINK of DISCRIMINATING against a kitty simply because his or her fur was black!!! Our Human says one of the things that most attracted her to Trixie was her beautiful, black glossiness. We are SO-O-O-O-O happy that beautiful Allie has finally found the fur-ever home she deserves.
    Good luck to you, Sweet Allie and to your new Mummy, Laura. Live long and purr-osper.

  32. So happy that Allie has a wonderful home, she was a very patient girl!!!

    I can't believe the black cat nonsense that goes on!!! They are such wonderful kitties, our Kip is the sweetest boy ever! I told Robert we are only adopting black cats from now on...not that we're really adopting any currently, we're pretty full up - LOL!!!

  33. Congratulations to Allie!! Yes, I have heard that about black cats. It's sad. I had an all black cat named Merlin and he was the sweetest cat and so gentle and loving! Sadly, he died of kidney failure and I still miss him. I've found black cats to be among the most loving and great "lap cats!"

  34. Yay, we're so happy for Allie! :)

  35. Congratulations to Allie! She looks like such a sweetie pie. I have read that about black cats (and dogs) not faring as well in shelters. My sister has two black cats and says they steal hearts not souls. :-) Her second black cat had been in the shelter for almost two years, and is a senior, so had two "strikes" against him. She drove from Georgia to NC to get him after I found him online for her. So proud of my little sister! Hubby and I both had a black cat when we met, but his didn't like me and defected to go live with my sister and mine didn't like him and defected to go live with my parents, so we don't currently have black kitties of our own, but I'm sure that will change. :-) So happy for Allie!

  38. I am so happy to read that this beauty has found a loving home with someone named Laura! I have had three black cats in my lifetime--including one of my current kitties. All of them full of personality and love. People like the loving volunteers at PAWS help erase these notions, and people like me are so grateful!
    Hooray for all the kitties who landed in forever homes.
    Peace everyone! (Voting every day!!!)

  39. That statistic is weird! I am a big fan of black. I've always preferred black dogs and cats over any color. In fact, out of all our dogs, almost half are pure black. Some of them have white chest areas, though.
