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.

Oh sweet Sarah, our hearts break for sensitive kitties at shelters and we are so happy you are starting to trust the wonderful people at PAWS and we send big purrs your way for a safe, loving forever home to come forward to cherish you.

Awww... Sarah, we are so happy you are starting to come out of your shell. We have a special place in our hearts for shy kitties. I'm very shy too...and I'm sure it's very scary getting used to shelter life. We hope you don't have to get TOO used to it and instead can start getting used to a new forever home!

Some cats adjust to new environments much faster than others, we suppose. It may have taken Sarah a little while to turn around but we sure glad she did! We hope her furrever person(s) come and take her home soon enough. :)

Sarah has come a long way from the angry girl who came to PAWS a few years ago. I sure hope her new attitude will bring her a forever home soon.

P.S. Have the windows seats with suction cups at Paws withstood the test of time? Do they eventually get "unstuck" from the window?

To momma it is amazing that us rescues EVER learn to trust humans again...we have experienced so many awful things. It is such a tribute to the heart of a furbaby that they DO try again and hold no grudges. Sarah, we wish you the best most understanding forever home in the universe. You deserve it little one!
