(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - 1200 Posts, and Claude!

Holy cat! We were really surprised to see this is Animal Shelter Volunteer Life's 1,200th post! Mom Tracey started this little blog in December 2008, and since then, we've interacted with and befriended somewhere north of 5,000 kitties who have come through the doors of PAWS. And we've blogged about more than 1,000 of them. We never could have imagined we'd still be here.


Yet, here we are, still happy to be sharing about the amazing cats we're blessed to love and meet during the time we spend volunteering. We couldn't do it without the love and support of you -- our friends and followers. Thank you for your encouragement and care, and for the strength and joy with which you continue to gift us!

And now, for your (Almost) Wordless Wednesday viewing pleasure, is our handsome and adoptable friend, Claude.

Two year-old Claude is a very good boy. He's neutered, microchipped, current on his vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. Claude is a little shy at first, but he's super gentle, and warms up once he gets to know you. He gets along well with other cats, and would be a great buddy for another young kitty. All he needs is a chance. Come meet Claude today!

Aww, Claude is so cute and he knows how to pose 😻 His ears speak to a bit of a rough life. His face reminds us a bit of Big Merp, who has lived life hard but you wouldn't know it looking at him now.

And congratulations on 1200 posts!

That's an amazing achievement! Your photographs have helped hundreds of cats get adopted, and your visits, along with Tracey, to the shelter every weekend brighten the cats' wait for a home. Claude's beautiful picture is sure to help him get adopted.

Claude is so cute! I love his little pink nose. I hope his furever family comes along very soon.

Concatulations dear furiends!!!!!!!!!!! You know we have never listed how many posts we have? I know we're over 2000 but because I post so sporadically now (I am not good like you!!) I just never listed them. I should have way more than I do but I am lazy! I know how hard reaching 1200 is! Well done! Lots of love! xoxo

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty said...

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

We can't imagine the blogosphere without you! And Clyde is definitely the whole package ... sweet, handsome, and just begging for a home of his own.

Cathy Keisha said...

Concatulations! Don't ever think about NOT posting! Claude looks from his ears like he was a fighter, not a lover, sometime during his life. Glad he's a lover now.

Kitties Blue said...

All those statistics are incredible. What you do to help the kitties at PAWS is amazing, and we always love meeting those kitties here. Thank you for being so kind and compassionate and giving of yourselves. Wishing Claude a speedy adoption.
