FURever Home Friday! :)

Hooray!  It's time for our first FURever Home Friday of the year!  In the final days of 2012, some more PAWS cats found homes of their very own, including sweet Jack III!

Jack III
Jack's new family says he "...is doing great! What a sweetie. He is eating, playing, and using the litter box. He didn't last long upstairs and now is free in most of the house when we are home. He retreats to Bran's room when he is startled. He has been within inches of Maple, while she is laying down ... We are enjoying his company so much. He's such a friendly, social guy. Thank you."

The other lucky kitties in the latest graduating class were: 

Augustus and Winter (together)
Brody
 Ivan
Ulrich
Zelda

All in all, 23 PAWS cats were adopted in December. How awesome is that? :)

Just in case you need some more reasons to start your weekend with a smile, get a load of these "Happy Tales!"

JASMINE is settling in! She is sleeping on her new Dad’s desk when he works. She is exploring the house slowly. She lets him pet her frequently for short periods each time. He’s happy with her and thinks she is "the sweetest little cat."

It’s only been about 10 days since she was adopted, but OLIVE is adjusting slowly to her new home, parents and other cat. The existing cat wants to be friends, but Olive is taking it very slowly, not yet sure she is “safe” with him.  She is affectionate with her new parents, though. :)

SHERWOOD adjusted very quickly to his new home. He is getting along very well with his new cat sibling. He is super-affectionate and friendly. According to his new people, he is not a lap cat in the usual sense ... he "likes to use his dad's lap as a springboard." (editor's note: MOL!)

WINDY has adjusted very well and quickly to her new home. The couple who adopted her are really happy with her. They call her their “darling girl,” and say she is very affectionate and cuddly.

KOSMO and KRAMER are “…slowly but surely adjusting to their new home. Kosmo is coming out for affection. Kramer is still hiding a lot, but he is eating and using the litter box." Their new parents love Kosmo and Kramer, and are being very patient with them.

DIMAGGIO's family says he is "...beautiful, and very smart. He enjoys racing around the house, and is loving pulling bows of presents. He is very affectionate, and is settling in very well. We love him."

Have a great weekend, everybody! :)
