Dona Nobis Pacem
Today, we’re taking part in “BlogBlast for Peace.” Since Mimi Lenox started it in 2006, this day of peace has grown to include thousands of bloggers in more than 200 countries, all blogging about one thing ... PEACE.
Our peace globe this year features our beautiful and adoptable friend, Sarah. For a very long time after she came to PAWS, Sarah was frightened and confused by all of the strange sights, sounds and smells present at the shelter. She was extremely cage dependent, rarely venturing out even when it was time for her "out" time. It was clear that she had been let down by humans before, and she just wasn't sure she could trust the people or cats here.
While PAWS isn’t a “home,” it is a place where Sarah has experienced love and gentle care. And those things have allowed her to come to a place of peace, born from knowing the humans here speak gently, move slowly, and offer encouragement, pets and food. It's such a pleasure for us to watch as she learns to love and trust again, especially when she rushes to greet her favorite volunteers for some "together" time.
Sarah isn't a lap cat, but she loves human company. She is so ready to find her own forever family. She’s still cautious with new people and situations, so she would do best in a quiet home with folks who will be patient as she adjusts to her new surroundings. Won’t you please consider giving Sarah the home she deserves?
Wishing peace for all beings, today and every day,
Kevin, Tracey, Moosey, Gracie and Zoe
