Happy MEW Year!

Happy Mew Year! Despite a year that was challenging in so many ways, there were definitely some things that brought sheer and utter joy. Those would include the myriad of (now former) PAWS cats who will be ringing in 2022 with their new FURever families. Those of you who've been here before probably recognize some of the faces in this collage of some of our friends who found their happily ever afters in 2021.

Clockwise, from upper left: Flash, Briggs, Baby, Juno, Holly, Panda, Rosie, Sienna, Sunshine, Otis, Cho, Dante, Sugar, Scarlet, Mojo, Misha

Here are the graduates for the month of December (through 12/30/21): Baby, Bill, Bradley, Brady, Briggs, Caramel, Casper & Bob, Cho, Clark, Dante, Espresso & Cappuccino, Flash, Hazel, Latte, Lucky, Mrs. Grey, Mojo, Morticia, Ninja Rose, Patchy, Ross & Phoebe, Sienna, Smokey, Sookie, Spooky, Star, and Willow.

Of course, every adoption makes our hearts happy, but perhaps none of them more so than that of our longtime shelter buddy Flash, who waited for 1 1/2 years to find her perfect loving forever home.

And to think … when 9 year-old Flash first arrived at PAWS, she was so terrified that we weren’t able to post about her for months because we literally couldn’t get a good photo of her! As the months went by, Flash felt more safe and comfortable with her human friends at the shelter. But yet she waited and watched as so many of the other cats in her open room came and went. Fast forward to last week. We’re pretty sure Flash was on Santa’s list of NICE kitties, and that he brought her exactly what she wanted for Christmas. Flash has been adopted by a patient and understanding family with an attached art studio that will be all for her. Flash will be safe, warm, fed, and loved, and can come out for pets and attention whenever she wants. All in her time.๐Ÿ’– We have the distinct feeling that she’ll be doing so often.

Congratulations to Flash, and all of the graduates and their forever families! We wish all of them, and all of YOU, a new year (and many, many more to come) filled with happiness, good health, and love.

HAPPY MEW YEAR!

Happy New Year to the 'cats formerly known as PAWS kitties" (sorry Prince). It is wonderful to see so many faces especially Flash. A place of her own and her own caring family. Amazing.

Happy New Year to you and everyone who helps at PAWS. Thanks to you lives are saved, and cats are warm.
