Happy Sunday, everybody! :)

Meow-y Christmas! :)

All of us here at Animal Shelter Volunteer Life wish you the happiest of holidays, and a new year filled with love, laughter and peace. We'll be taking it easy for the next few days, but wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued friendship and support.  We appreciate you!

FURever Home (for the Holidays) Friday, part 2

Two weeks ago, we joyously posted about a bunch of PAWS kitties who would be spending their very first holidays with their new families.  Guess what?  The holiday adoptions (35 so far in November and December!) have continued to happen!  Just get a load of the cats who have graduated since that last update - just in time to see if reindeer really do know how to fly! :)

Here's the full list of recent adoptions:

Boone and Logan (together)
Kosmo and Kramer (together)

Congratulations, and happy holidays to all of our graduating kitties and their forever families! :)

Have a wonderful weekend, everybody!

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Adoptables

Sweet and handsome Bailey is a little shy with people he doesn't know, but give him a chance and you'll see that he is a snuggly lapcat through and through.  And he has one of the loudest purrs we've ever heard! :)
Toni has beautiful fur and a melodious voice.  She enjoys rubbing against the legs of the PAWS staff and volunteers, and LOVES being pet.  She is a big fan of catnip, and loves to play, especially with crinkly toys. :)

This is the second time at PAWS for Sparky and his handsome, all gray brother, Shadow.  They were adopted years ago, but returned recently when their owner was no longer able to keep them.  It was a tough transition back to life at the shelter for these handsome guys, but they are really starting to make strides, especially Sparky, who now loves being pet, and sitting next to his favorite volunteers.  Shadow and Sparky must be adopted together. 

All of these amazing adoptables are currently at PAWS.  Come meet them today! :)

Roamer - Cat of the Month

Hi!  My name is Roamer, and I'm the PAWS "December Cat of the Month."  Do you know what that means?  You don't?  Well, let me tell you, okay?

It means that my adoption fee is just $75 this month!  And that whoever adopts my handsome, playful self gets a special bag of goodies!  Talk about a bargain!  A lower adoption fee, a new best friend who will love you forever, and free stuff.  Just in time for the holidays! :)

I'm only about 1 1/2 years old, active, SUPER PLAYFUL, and affectionate.  I'm also neutered, microchipped, current on all my vaccinations, and I've tested negative for FIV and FeLV.

Come meet me soon at PAWS.  I promise you won't be sorry. :)

Seven Things and Stars

Hi everybody.  It's me, Moosey!  Guess what?  I got an award!  Our sweet friends at Twinkletoe Tails gave ME the "7 Things About Me" award.  Thank you Oui Oui, Mica Minnie Moo, Julie and Carlos! The rules for this award are pretty simple: I'm supposed to tell seven things about ME. But I'm going to be creative, and tell you TWO things about me, TWO things about my brother Sammy, and about THREE of the adoptable cats at PAWS (my and Sammy's alma mater). :)

1. One of my most favorite treats is plain lettuce!  Oh, and by the way ... for all of you kittehs who just read that with horror and disbelief, I also like more traditional treats like tuna, chick-hen, Temptations, cheese and cereal milk. :)

2. I sleep between the mom and the dad every night.  Right after I go on patrol to make sure everything is locked down and secure in our house!

Sammy and me
3. Sammy loves being brushed, BUT he thinks he knows how to do it better than the mom and the dad.  He takes the brush from them, holds it down with his front paws, and tries to brush his own face!

4. Sammy is a great older brother, and a very good boy (and so am I).  We do NOT climb the Christmas tree, and we do NOT try to play with the ornaments.  (Sammy and I sure hope Santa Claws is reading this, by the way.)

5. Our friend Patch is a sweet and gentle mancat in search of a forever home.  He loves treats and gentle pets, and would do great in a quieter home.

6. Allie is a super-nice house panther, and she is a total lapcat! She has the softest furs ever, and is waiting at PAWS for a home of her very own.

7. Tessa is gentle and beautiful, and she is a the most graceful jumper ever!  She loves catnip and the laser toy.  Oh, and she is looking for a forever home, too!

I'm having a hard time choosing just seven friends with whom to share this award, so I'm giving it with hugs and headbonks to anyone who does not have it yet! :)


In other award news ... THANKS to our wonderful blogging pals, we now have ALL of the STARS for our Blog of the Year Award!  We got them from Dawn (Shubunkin) of the Pond Fish (who are now blogging at our angel friend Diamond's blog), Nellie and Kozmo from the Cat From Hell's blog (who made us the special star below, which we LOVE), Gorogoro and Nikoniko, Pip, Smidgen, Minnie and Hollie at Fraidy Cats, da tabbies of trout towne, Katie Isabella, Spitty-the-Kitty, the Twinkletoe Tails gang, and Sherlock, Ash and Traveler at Feline Purr-Spective.  We sure hope we didn't leave anybody off!

Thanks, Nellie and Kozmo!
 Have a great day, everybuddy!
