FURever Home Friday! :)

Looking for some happy news to kick off your weekend?  Well, you've come to the right place, because it's time for another edition of FURever Home Friday.  Those of you who've been following us for a while will see some familiar names and faces on the "adopted" list, including those of some kitties who've been waiting at PAWS for quite some time.  Among those who've found their happily ever afters are...

Who else was gotcha'd?  Here's the full list (in alphabetical order) of recent PAWS cat graduates:
Boudica and Minnie (together)
Brad and Angelina (together)
Donald and Joshua (together)
Frittata and Farfalle (together)
George I
George II
Jesse James
Kumquat and Key Lime (together)
Sophia (to permanent foster)
Wild Bill


Some happy tails (er, tales) from some of our alumni and their families:

Patches’ new name is Calliope and she is doing well, I think. She seems comfortable in her new home and has a voracious appetite and very definite preferences. She will only eat Weruva and Halo Spots Stew brand cat foods. She is still somewhat skittish yet slowly but surely she is becoming more affectionate. We still do everything on her terms. On Saturday night she slept at the end of my bed for the first time ever AND I heard her PURR for the very first time. I was surprised and very happy.

Miffy (aka Tinkerbelle) is so purrfect! She’s given us so much joy and we believe she’s happy with us too. Here’s a photo of her enjoying a catnap with me. I found her snuggled between my legs.

Brandon has adapted perfectly to his new home. He gets along great with our other cat, and is really starting to get completely comfortable in his new surroundings. My wife and I are extremely happy with our two cats that we adopted from PAWS.


Thanks for reading, and sharing in our adoption celebration.  Have a great weekend!

Congratulations to all! So many kitties adopted! Our mom hopes they're mostly indoors cause it's safer for them and the birdies. (A beautiful cat down the street who was outside all the time suddenly disappeared and nobody knows what happened to him.)
