FURever Home Friday!

Hooray!  It's FURever Home Friday!  And we have some HUGE adoption news to report!

Do you remember our recent post about beautiful, shy and sweet house panther Mercedes, who had been at the shelter for more than five years?  Well, guess what?  She's been adopted!  But wait ... there's more.  Mercedes was adopted together with Cameron, another sweet adult black cat! :)

Mercedes has been adopted, together with Cameron!

In other really big adoption news, pretty Patches (she's the calico kitty with her eyes closed in our blog header) also found her own happily ever after!

Patches

And handsome, snuggly Dexter found a new family, too!

Dexter

Here's the full list of all of the most recent PAWS graduates:

Dexter
Falafel
Grace
Madison and Magic (together)
Mango and Marley (together)
Mercedes and Cameron (together)
Patches
Two Do and Breezy (together)

To all of the adoptees: Have a great life, dear friends.  We will love you always, and are so happy for you and your new families!

===============================

And to close out the post, here's a happy tail (tale) about our pal Kipper, from his mom:

Kipper is doing great and we love him! He adapted very quickly and had a pretty seamless transition. He eats very well and always uses his litterbox, so we haven't had any issues at all. He's a wonderful addition and a wonderful cat, and has made himself right at home. Now that the weather is nice and the windows are open, he finds himself sunbathing in the windowsill for hours on end - I snapped a pic of him this afternoon - see below!  Please be in touch with any other questions, and I'll try to send some more pictures of him lounging like a true gentleman! - Sarah

Yay for Kipper!
 Have a great weekend, everybody! :)
