FURever Home Friday :)

Those of you who've been following Animal Shelter Volunteer Life for a while probably remember our gorgeous and petite friend, Tessa.  She's the long-haired, grey and white tuxedo cat who is nearly smack dab in the middle of our blog header. We've also featured her in posts a number of times.  Tessa first came to PAWS in January of 2011, and she's come very close to being adopted more than once.  Well, guess what?  (You kind of know what's coming, don't you?) Tessa has been...

Tessa's new mommy recently had to say goodbye to her beloved kitty (whose time it was to go to the Rainbow Bridge).  When her heart was ready to love and adopt another, she met Tessa.  And the rest, as they say, is history. :)

Look who else found forever homes since our last FURever Home Friday post!



Also joining the adoption parade were:
Benjamin
Button
Dame Judi Dench (aka DJD)
Will

 Congratulations to all of the graduates and their new families!

And to close this post, here's an update from the family of PAWS graduate Benny (formerly Bender) that's sure to give you even more smiles...

  We adopted "Bender" who is now Benny in Sept. He is doing fantastic!! He
adjusted great and got so big and tall from then until now.  I absolutely love
him.  You will see below he is very comfortable and loves his home.


Have a great weekend, everybody!

Concats to the graduating class! I love to read this and I feel especially happy to the tabbies cos I know people would rather adopt exotic looking cats. I’m so glad Tessa is finally leaving for home cos she’s been at PAWS forever.
