Happy News Update :)

We love sharing happy news! And it doesn't get much happier than a bunch of shelter cats finding -- and loving life in -- their forever homes. Also ranking pretty high on the happiness scale is hearing that other kitties are doing well in their foster homes. In any case, we hope the following "happy tails" help start your weekend with a smile...

First ... BFFs Angel and Roxy have been adopted together! :)


And the following kitties have also joined the ranks of PAWS graduates:

Abigail
Autumn
Betty and Veronica - together
Checkers
Cindy
Dean
Demmie
Dixie
Julian
Justin 2
Ludwig
Makita
Marlin and Marvin - together
Mom and GeeGee - together
Rachel
Sammy (see follow-up story and picture below!)
Shelby
Softail
Woogie

Both Gadget and Augusta are flourishing in their respective foster homes. We'll provide details (and hopefully pictures) in an upcoming post.

Finally, PAWS received
a bunch of wonderful follow-up reports about some of our alumni. There were too many to include them all, but here are a couple we think you'll really enjoy:

Remember Sammy, the sweet, one-eyed wonder cat?


His new owner reports that Sammy is enjoying his new forever home:

“I was able to get some pictures of Sammy. I thought he would be easy to photograph, but he's always in motion! Busy as a bee! He seems to be settling in just fine so far. He does one thing that amazes me. He will sit about three feet from the bedroom door and "stare" at it. He seems to know there is a closed door there and wants to know what's on the other side. Meanwhile, Andy seems to have no clue there is another cat in the apartment. I'm sure that will change by tomorrow.”

And Grover the Cat wrote us to say, "I’m happy and healthy and doing great ... I’m so happy that I play all day like a kitten again!"

Here's Grover's Christmas card:


Yep, he definitely looks happy to us. :)

Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend, everybody!

I'm so happy to hear about Angel and Roxy getting adopted. And the followup of one eyed Sammy really warms my heart. If I was searching a shelter for a kitty, the one eyed cat would of stolen my heart.

Ellen Whyte said...

Darn it our post keeps disappearing!

We said it's great news, the best! And kudos to PAWS for arranging these adoptions.

White Dog Blog said...

We love updates like this! It makes us all happy and wet-eyed (the good kind) and thankful that these deserving furkids have found their perfect families. We wish them all long lives, safety, happiness, and love!

Strayer said...

I have a terrible time finding even one cat a home. Well, my advertising budget is a big fat $0, maybe that has something to do with it. And, I have no adoption venue. I think I should come with some cats to you, some lovely highly adoptable wonderful cats, from my home, in Oregon, to PAWS, so that they might find homes and not be permanently flopped atop me on my bed, which is getting very heavy at night, due to cat weight.

Alley Cats and Angels of North Carolina said...

I'm so very happy that Angel and Roxy were adopted together.

And Sammy is very handsome. I joke that for a small rescue, we're the home of the one-eyed cats! Although they do typically get adopted very quickly.

Freya's Staff said...

I love little one-eyed Sammy!!

catsynth said...

It's great to hear that so many of the cats are doing well in their new homes!

This is good news. It is good to see someone take the cats in. So many pets have a hard time finding a home.

Julia Williams said...
