FURever Home Friday! :)

Hip hip hooray! It's time for another edition of FURever Home Friday, our periodic post about the lucky PAWS cats who've found their happily ever afters. You'll see many of the kitties we've featured here in the past (including some long-timers and extra special friends) on the list of newest alumni. There's a lot of exciting news to share, so let's get this party started!

Brothers (and longtime PAWS residents) Sparky and Shadow have been adopted together! We're told by their new mom's sister (a friend and former PAWS volunteer) that these two are sure to be spoiled rotten (and deservedly so).

Shadow

Remember sweet and handsome Hemingway, who had surgery to remove his badly injured rear leg? You'll be happy to know he's doing super well in his forever home. :)

Senior cat Buddy, who was loved by PAWS volunteers and staff for 3 1/2 years, now has his very own forever mom (friend and fellow volunteer Kim)! She says he spends lots of time looking out the window, and we can't say we blame him one bit. Enjoy your new home (and that view), Buddy!

Senior ladycat Artemis was adopted, too! Her new mom says Artie's doing great (check out the "Happy Tails" section below). So cute!

Artie's PAWS senior ladycat roomie, Phoebe, also found her happily ever after. Be sure to read about how she's doing with her permanent foster Mom in the "Happy Tails" section!

Wait! The party's not over yet! Here are some "Happy Tails Tales" about how some former PAWS cats are doing in their forever homes:
 

“Phoebe is doing wonderfully. She was shy at first, and denned herself in our guest room which was the most like her old office at PAWS. She now ventures out as she pleases and I've been able to move her food and litter box downstairs to where I wanted them which gets her moving about and getting to know the whole house. She's an old lady so she sleeps a lot but she is accustomed to us now and very affectionate. She is eating and drinking well. She prefers the KD tuna which I mix with a little regular tuna and a lot of water to make a slurry. She adores it and gets extra water that way. Our other kitties loved that too, and they made it to 17+. No problems doing her fluids. She doesn't even squeak or squirm and it only takes a few minutes.”


“Artemis is on a mission. She waits at the door of the room she has been staying in and as soon as I open the door, she walks right out into the hallway with 3 dogs and 2 cats. There was a bit of growling the first couple times but not too bad. I don't think the dogs are going to be a problem for her. She is playing with her toys, walking around her room more often and I dare say she seems very happy. I also picked her up and brought her to the front door to look outside so she could feel the sun and the nice weather. She seemed to really enjoyed it, but after a few minutes she was unsure and I brought her back to her room. She's making great leaps and bounds and gets more comfortable every day.”


“Garfield is doing SO well! He hid under the couch for a little while last night but after only an hour or so he came and sat with us on the couch, explored his new home, and ate well. I'd say he's a happy boy. We love him so much!”

Happy weekend, everybuddy! 💖

I just moved into my new furrever home a few weeks ago. I was staying at Orange County Animal Services here in Chapel Hill when my new mom and dad let me pick them to go home with. You volunteers get special kudos for all you do.

Hooray! This made our Friday even better. We are so happy for all of these wonderful kitties, who more than deserve their forever homes.

Marg said...

That is so great that so many got adopted and are doing well. We really like the reports on everyone. That is fun to see.

It's been a great adoption month! The adoption counselors at PAWS are so good and the Senior Program is such a wonderful success. Happy Friday for sure. I hope you and Tracey have a lovely snow day snuggling with Zoe and Gracie.

Kevin, these adoption updates and happy tales warm my heart. I'm sure it's especially rewarding for all of you when long-time residents finally find their forever homes, senior kitties and those with special needs (or some combination of all of the above). Thank you for continuing your positive, uplifting posts -- so needed to remind myself (and us all) that there ARE happy endings (or beginnings) in the midst of all the suffering (non-human and human) that the media focuses on.

Peace and Blessings.
