FURever Home Friday! :)

Want a whole lot of good news to start your weekend?  Well, you've come to the right place, because today is FURever Home Friday!  And just look at who found their happily ever afters since our last adoption update!

Our sweet and funny friend Jazmin, who waited patiently for more than two years for her forever home...

Handsome Tammikuu...

Pretty and sweet mommy cat Mushka...

Lovebug Jeter...

Gentle and snuggly Grover...

...and a whole bunch of other awesome kitties!  Here's the complete (and LONG) list of the most recent PAWS graduates:

Abraham, Bisquit, Black Bean and Pinto Bean (together), Brandon, Bruiser, Casper, Czar, Dude, Egypt, Farfale, Frittata, Grover, Gypsy, Hecate, Jasmine (from Foster), Jeter, Kerry, Khal, Khan, Kiku, Lady Jane, Luna and Jazmin (together), Mercedes *, Missy, Moses, Mushka, Noah, Ophelia, Peachy, Petra, Portia, Puck, Rebecca, Tammikuu, Titania, Warner

Those of you who read our last FURever Home Friday post probably remember us mentioning that Mercedes had been adopted.  Well, she HAD.  But that home wasn't the right fit for our sensitive and sweet friend, so after a brief return to PAWS, she got adopted again!  And this time into a nice quiet home with a new mom who is willing to give her the time she needs to feel safe, secure and loved.  How amazing is it that a cat who waited so long was adopted TWICE in the span of a month?  The happiest part of all is that it appears she's finally and truly found her very own forever home.

Congratulations to Mercedes and her new mom, and to all of the graduates and their new families!  And to all the kitties still waiting for their own happily ever afters ... don't fret ... we promise you'll be loved and cared for at PAWS until your own gotcha days arrive.

Have a great weekend, everybody. :)

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Gizmo :)

Sweet and handsome Gizmo is one of the official greeters in PAWS Cat Room 4.

As soon as anybody enters the room, this friendly and outgoing mancat is there to welcome them. 

Come see for yourself! Gizmo is about 7 years old, neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on all his vaccinations. He has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  And yes, he's really and truly as cute as he looks in these pictures. :)

International Box Day :)

We've never met a cat who didn't like boxes.  Come to think of it, it seems that most animals we've ever met kind of enjoy being in, on and around them.  It's a phenomenon that's been noted by pet bloggers the world over, and today is the day to celebrate the unabashed love that animals have for boxes. :)

Here's Khan (who recently found his very own forever home), getting his last turn in one of the PAWS Meeting Room's favorite boxes:

And our beautiful pal Izzy (still waiting to be adopted), staking her claim to the very same box:

Check out the official International Box Day badge featuring some of our best blogging pals (and our own beloved Moosey!), and created by our awesome friend Ann at Zoolatry:

Happy International Box Day 2014!

Sarah - Friendship and Trust

The transition to life at PAWS hasn't been easy for our beautiful friend Sarah.   The sights, smells and sounds of a shelter can be overwhelming, especially for sensitive kitties like her.  But as we've found time and again, consistent love, kindness and patience often help cats like Sarah realize that people aren't so bad.  She's not exactly a lap cat yet, but as you can see from these pictures, she definitely enjoys hanging out with her human pals.  She also loves playing with laser toys!

It's not clear why Sarah waited until now to turn a new page. We're just glad she finally did. :)

Sarah is about 10 years old, spayed and up-to-date on her vaccinations. She has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. She would do best in a quieter home with no children or other cats.

Happy Father's Day to Our Big Cat Daddy!

Dear Dad (Meowmeowmans),

On this wonderful holiday, we want to thank you for being the Big Kahuna, the Big Cheese, the one (of the male persuasion, anyway...MOL!) who rules the roost.

In all seriousness, we want to thank you so much for recognizing just how great us older kitties are, and for taking us home from PAWS to live with you and the mom. We are blessed to be loved by such a sensitive, caring and loving dad like you. 

BTW ... Mom thinks you're pretty cool, too... :)

We love you!


Moosey, Zoe and Gracie

P.S. - Mom helped us with this post. :)

Happy Gotcha Day, Moosey!

Happy Gotcha Day, Moosey!

Thanks to our friend Ann, at Zoolatry, for this beautiful badge!

We're grateful and glad that you came home with us six years ago (on June 6, 2008).

Thank you for choosing us to be your family,

and for making our home such a happy place.

We love you, buddy, and cherish each and every moment we have with you,

Dad, Mom, Gracie and Zoe


Thank you to all of our wonderful friends who have been sending love, purrs and prayers for Moosey's health.  He's doing really well!  His daily medications (which he's so good about taking) are keeping things in check, and his doctor says things look good.  So with that said, we do hope you'll all help us celebrate Moosey's special day. :)

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Oscar

The eyes have it!

Handsome and adoptable Oscar has some of the biggest, roundest peepers ever!

Sadly, this friendly guy came to PAWS after his owner got sick.  Oscar was obviously well-loved, because he is very sweet and loves hanging out with his volunteer pals.

Oscar is about 12 years old, neutered, micro-chipped, and up to date on his vaccinations.  He has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  He's waiting at PAWS for his new forever home, and has lots of love to give to whoever is lucky enough to adopt him. :)


Did you know today (June 4) is Hug Your Cat Day?  Moosey, Gracie and Zoe get hugs EVERY day, but we'll use any excuse to give them some more. Happy Hug Your Cat Day! :)
