Happy MEW Year! :)

Question: What could possibly be happier than a formerly homeless PAWS cat beginning the New Year in its very own forever home?

Answer: A WHOLE BUNCH of formerly homeless PAWS cats beginning the New Year in forever homes.  And that’s exactly what’s happened since our last adoption update! Among the end-of-the-year graduates you may remember from our blog are sweet Calico Manx Marmalade and handsome cow cat Puck.

Here’s the entire list of exciting adoptions:

Adele and Bruno
Divine and Knick Knack
Kramer and Kosmo
Trinket and Tchochke

Congratulations to all of the recent adoptees and their new families! And to all of you – our friends and blog followers, both new and old – Happy New Year! May your coming year be filled with peace, love and much happiness. :)

Purrs and head bonks,



  1. May Ceiling Cat bless all those who adopt, and bring new forever homes for those who need them. :)
