One Adoption = TWO Lives Saved: #RememberMeThursday

Today is Remember Me Thursday, a worldwide campaign that shines a light on orphan pets waiting in shelters and rescues, and the beauty and life-saving importance of pet adoption. Since that’s pretty much what we try to do 24/7/365, we think a day dedicated to helping the world #SeeTheLight about this stuff is pretty exciting.

As we thought about what we could do to shine a light on orphan pets for this special day, it struck us that we have lots of photos of cats who have come through the doors of PAWS on their way to their forever homes. Each time one of those kitties was adopted meant there was now a space at the shelter for another orphan cat waiting to find its forever family. In short, when one shelter animal is adopted, TWO lives are saved.

Here’s a collage of some of the PAWS cats who have recently been adopted. Friends and regular visitors will surely recognize some of these faces!

 

Of course, there are still lots of cats (and dogs) still here and elsewhere waiting to find loving homes. If you’re in a position to adopt, and happen to live in the Norwalk, CT area, be sure to check out all the adoptable PAWS cats here. If you live too far to do that, we can say with all the confidence in the world that there are so many wonderful and adoptable cats and other pet animals at your local shelter/rescue! Who knows? Maybe today's the day you'll find your new best friend, and save two lives while you're at it!

(Almost) Wordless Delphine

Our new friend Delphine is quite the stunner. Just look at that luxurious coat, that pretty face, and those amazing eyes (one blue, and one gold). Top it off with the adorable way she tilts her head just so for the camera, and this kitty is irresistible!

 
This gentle and affectionate little cutie is as sweet as she is beautiful. Delphine came to PAWS after being found as a pregnant stray. At just a little more than a year old, she had her babies when she was barely out of kittenhood herself! Now that her kittens have been adopted, Delphine is ready to find her happily ever after, too. She is current on her vaccinations and negative for FIV and FeLV, and will be spayed soon. Come meet her today, and fall in love!

Doodle's Easy Like Sunday Selfies

As you can see from his super selfies, our pal Doodle knows a thing or two about modeling. If you also sense a mega chill vibe about him, you'd be right on target. In fact, this ginger mancat is the complete package -- handsome, loving, and sweet!


Doodle is about one year old. He came to PAWS from a home where there were too many cats. At first, he was a bit overwhelmed here at the shelter, but with lots of love and attention (and treats!), it waSn't long before his sweet nature emerged in full force. He is truly a delightful little dude who gets along well with other cats and adores his human friends. Doodle is neutered, current on his vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. He's totally  ready to meet his new forever best friend! Could it be you?


It's Sunday, which means we're hopping along in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, hosted by our pals at The Cat On My Head. Be sure to check it out to see who else is hopping along (or to join in on the fun)!

(Almost) Wordless Georgie / 1500 Posts

Check out our sweet and adoptable friend, Georgie. Her loving and gentle nature flies directly in the face of that age-old belief about tortoiseshell cats having "tortitude." You'll get none of that stuff with Georgie, and we can attest to the fact that she adores everyone she meets, and loves being pet and hanging with her human pals!


Georgie, who is just a little more than one year old, came to PAWS as a very young (and excellent) mother. Now that her beautiful babies have been adopted, Georgie is ready to find her own forever home where she can be the baby. She's spayed, current on her vaccinations, negative for FIV and FeLV, and she promises to be the best forever friend for whoever is lucky enough to adopt her. Could it be you?

💖

On another, sort of related note, this is our 1,500th post! Since Tracey started Animal Shelter Volunteer Life back in December 2008, we've befriended more than 7,000 kitties who have made their way through the doors of PAWS, and shared about more than 1,250 of them in this space. We get such joy from helping these amazing cats find their forever families, and it's our honor to be able to share them with all of you. Thank you, dear friends and followers, for sharing in our journey, and for your continued love and encouragement. They -- and you -- mean the world to us!

Sweeney's Selfies

Check out our sweet and adoptable buddy Sweeney. Is he amazing, or what?

Sweeney is one of those kitties you read about who just show up one day in a community cat colony. He's such a friendly and gentle dude that there's little doubt he was just "dropped" into the colony by someone. Luckily for him, one of the nice humans who helps manage that colony realized immediately that this "new" kitty was not feral, and was, in fact a very nice mancat who would make a great forever friend for some lucky human. Sweeney, who is about four years old, is now at PAWS, neutered, current on his vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. He loves people, and gets along great with other nice cats. Sweeney is all dressed up in his tuxedo and ready to find his happily ever after. Is it with you?

Selfies by Hank

Sometimes what you see is exactly what you get. And that's certainly the case with our handsome, super sweet, and adoptable friend Hank. Just look at his face, and you can see the love! Hank truly is as gentle as they come.


Hank ended up at PAWS after being found at a demolition site. It turns out his family had been evicted and the home was being torn down. Hank was so glad to be rescued that he was purring and rubbing his face on everyone in sight -- including the friendly neighborhood dog! It just shows how much love this mancat has to give, and demonstrates that he would be a great fit for almost any loving forever home. Hank is about two years old, neutered, current on his vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. He's ready to find his happily ever after. Is it with you?

It's Sunday, which means we're hopping along in the Sunday Selfies Blog Hop, hosted by our pals at The Cat On My Head. Be sure to check it out to see who else is hopping along (or to join in on the fun)!

(Almost) Wordless Marilyn

Just look at that purrfect face, those fancy whiskers, and those beautiful furs. Our adoptable pal Marilyn is most definitely a star!

Marilyn, who is about 1 1/2 years old, was left behind when her former human moved.😞 Fortunately, a good Samaritan took this beautiful kitty in, and then brought her to PAWS. Marilyn is now getting lots of love and attention here, and is now ready to find her happily ever after. She is spayed, current on her vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. According her intake card description, Marilyn has lived with other very mellow cats but truth be told, she would be happier as your one and only pet. No matter, she has more than enough love for whoever is lucky enough to adopt her. Come meet Marilyn today!

Herman's Selfies

Check out our sweet, lovable, and handsome friend Herman. As you can see, this gentle dude knows his stuff when it comes to posing for the camera!

7 year-old Herman was found abandoned in a college dormitory that was closed for the school year. The air conditioning in the building had been shut off, and all poor Herman had was a big bowl of poor-quality food and no water. It's a horrible story, but we are glad this gentle dude is now safe and loved at PAWS. We can say from first-hand experience that he adores hanging out with his human pals, and gets along with other nice kitties! Herman is neutered, current on his vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. He's so ready to find his happily ever after. Is it with you?

(Almost) Wordless Phoebe

Check out our sweet, pretty, and silly friend Phoebe! This recent mama to four adorable kittens is now spayed and ready to find her loving forever home.

Phoebe is about 1 1/2 years old, and although she has lived in a home with dogs and other cats, she would definitely prefer to be your one and only furry best friend. In case that gives you pause, she made us promise to tell you that she has more than enough love for whoever is lucky enough to choose her. We can attest to this fact ... she adores her human pals! Phoebe is spayed, current on her vaccinations, and negative for FIV and FeLV. Come meet her today, and fall in love!

Dakota is only about 10 months old. He adores his human friends, and loves to play. He has a lot of energy, and would do best in a home with a kitty companion or a human who will play with him lots.
