Celebrate Me Home

Christmas wishes DO come true.


Do you remember our beautiful, sweet and gentle friend Sheba?  If you do, you probably recall that the adjustment to living in the shelter was difficult and overwhelming for her.  For quite some time, she would face the back corner of her cage, not wanting to interact with anyone.  But with consistent affection and attention (and interactive cat videos!) from the PAWS volunteers and staff, this senior ladycat learned to trust and love humans once again.  It turns out Sheba is an unabashed lap cat.  And we all absolutely ADORE her. :)

As you can guess, there wasn't a dry eye in the house when Sheba's wish for a forever home finally came true this weekend.  Merry Christmas, our dear Sheba.  We love you, and are over the moon that you've found your very own happily ever after!

Also celebrating the holidays in their new forever homes are: Pauline, Tyson, Tinsel and Candy Cane (together), and Bubba!  Add these lucky kitties to those in our most recent FURever Friday post, and there's a whole lot to celebrate around here. :)


All of us here at Animal Shelter Volunteer Life wish you the happiest of holidays, and a new year filled with peace, love and joy.

Hugs and headbonks,

Kevin (meowmeowmans), Tracey, Moosey, Gracie and Zoe
