Easy Like Sunday - Mikan

Hi, everybuddy.  I'm Mikan, one of the kitties waiting at PAWS for forever homes.  As you can see, I'm hanging out today in this big 'ol cat tree in the meeting room.  It's the perfect place for a mancat like me to explore, scratch, play and take it easy.  Sometimes I like sitting on top of the platforms, like this...

But for true relaxamicating, I prefer the security and comfort of being (sort of) inside one of the cat tree's cubbyholes...

FURever Home Friday!

Holy Cat!  When we looked at the official PAWS adoption board the other day, we noticed LOTS of names written on it.  Which is pawsome, because lots of NAMES means that LOTS OF CATS found forever homes!  Members of the new graduating class include...

Merritt 2
Snow White
Tinker Belle
Here's an alphabetical list of all the happy graduates.  ConCATulations to them all, and their families!

Letizia and Marlo (together)

And as we always do, we'll leave you with a very happy tail (er, tale); this one's about our pal Kit-E, who has been renamed Tessa by her new family. Here's what they wrote:
Tessa (formerly Kit-E)
We have re-named "Kit-E" to "Tessa" and she definitely knows her name.  When we call her she comes running to us, unless she is bird watching from the living room window :).   And, yes, she has completely adapted to our home (eating and using her litter box appropriately).  She follows us around, loves to eat, play, and sleep.  She interacts in everything we do and loves being the "center of attention." We love her so much and so glad we have her!

Tessa (formerly Kit-E)

Have a great weekend, everybody! :)

Happy Birthday to Mom Tracey!

Happy birthday to our Mom!  We may be a teeny bit biased, but we think you are the best cat mom in the whole world.  And word on the street has it that Dad thinks you're the cat's meow, too. (Ed. note from meowmeowmans: Very, very true!)

Thank you for loving us all so much, and so well. And for your kind and compassionate heart, and for all you do for so many.

Now ... let's get this pawty started!  Bring on the catnip and snacks! :)


Moosey, Gracie and Zoe (and Dad meowmeowmans, too)

Easy Like Sunday - Tessa

Here's our sweet, petite and beautiful friend, Tessa, enjoying an extra-comfy easy on her favorite perch.  We bet she's dreaming about finding a loving forever home, with a lap of her very own.  Maybe you can make her dream come true?

Catching Up on Awards, Again

Shoot.  We're behind -- way behind -- on posting about the awards we've received from some of our beloved blogging friends.  THANK YOU to those who were thoughtful and kind enough to give us awards: we are grateful, honored and humbled, all rolled up into one!

Just as we did the (ahem) last time we fell behind, we've created a collage to display these beautiful awards, and written a little something about our pals who gave them to us.  If you aren't already familiar with the bloggers mentioned below, you should get to know them.  They're all terrific!

The Friends & Followers Award, from our friends at The Cat on My Head.  We love Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo, and their Mom Janet.  It's always a treat to read about their antics and adventures, and the photography at their blog is wonderful.  They also gave us these other pawsome awards:

Because You're Fantabulous Award
The Lighthouse Award
One Lovely Blog Award

The Shine On Award, from the J-Cats -- Trixie the Black Panther and her little brother Caspurr -- and their Mum, Shimona.  Their really great blog, Purr-sonally Speaking, was started by Angels Possum and Pixie.  Trixie, Caspurr and Mum Shimona live in Jerusalem, IsraelWe just teleported to their house this past weekend for a totally fun Purim party! :)

The Mouses Award, from our pals at Cat Tales.  Bujang, Rocket Tanaka (who is the most orange-y cat we have ever seen), and Ms. Akira live with san in Singapore.  They always have such interesting stories to tell, and it always gives us great joy to see pictures of beautiful Ms. Akira enjoying time by her favorite window.  We also really like seeing Bujang and Tanaka walking outside in their harnesses.

The Field of Flowers Award, from the gang at Life with Dogs and Cats.  These dogs (Lilah, Jasper and Tucker) and cats (Dawn, Athena, Calvin, and Elsa Clair) are creative, funny and multi-talented -- they write haiku, text, and (along with their human, Susan) are even finalists in the "Best Blog Post" category of the 2014 BlogPaws Nose to Nose Awards!  ConCATulations and good luck, friends!

The Sunshine Award, from our friends at Life With Ragdolls, who just celebrated their 8-month blogoversary. The Ragdolls in the title -- Nico and Anya -- are gorgeous.  And Star and Saphira (the two other cats who live with them) may not be Ragdolls, but they, too, are absolutely beautiful.  The posts at this blog, written by Ragdoll Mommy, almost always make us smile. (Note: Anya has been feeling poorly the last couple of days, so please purr and pray for her to get better.)

Thank you again to all of our wonderfully thoughtful friends for these awards.  Please forgive us for taking so long to share about them (but thank COD we finally did)!

Have a great weekend, everybody!

Gorgeous, friendly and sweet ... our friend Merritt 2 is the whole package! 
And she's waiting at PAWS to meet you. :)

Merritt 2 is about 8 years old, spayed, and up to date on all her vaccinations.  She'd do great in a quiet home, or a family with older children.  Merritt 2 has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.
