Dona Nobis Pacem* #blog4peace

Today, we’re taking part in “BlogBlast for Peace.” Since Mimi Lenox started it in 2006, this day of peace has grown to include thousands of bloggers in 214 countries and counting, all blogging about one thing ... PEACE.


The official Blog Blast for Peace theme this year is "Finding Peace in Overwhelming Times." In a world where tumult and discord often take center stage, there's so much to be said for finding the kind of inner peace that grows and engenders peace, love and understanding. That's why we chose to feature our gorgeous and adoptable friend, Bella, on our peace globe. For a long time, Bella wasn't sure she could trust the people or cats at PAWS. But with love and care, and her own "suite," she's become a completely different cat, one who is confident and full of the peace that comes with being happy with where she is at. She loves spending time with her favorite volunteers, enjoys being pet, and is even up for some occasional lap time when the mood strikes.

With the transformation that inner peace has brought her, Bella is supremely ready to find her own forever family. She’s still a little cautious with new people and situations, so she would do best in a quiet home with folks who will be patient as she adjusts to her new surroundings. Won’t you please consider giving Bella the home she deserves?

Wishing peace for all beings, today and every day,

Kevin, Tracey, and Gracie

(*Dona Nobis Pacem is Latin for "grant us peace.")

I love your peace piece—get it?—and the globe with Bella. The chance that peace will come in my lifetime is rapidly diminishing. But we’ll try to achieve it one blog at a time. Peace out.
