(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Swizzle :)

We adore sweet and pretty Swizzle!  You probably remember her from our last post, when we shared that our friends at The Cat on My Head have made her an honorary Kitty Blue, and are sponsoring her until she is adopted from PAWS. :)


This gentle girl enjoys snuggles and being pet.



She also loves her track ball toy.

Swizzle is spayed, micro-chipped, and up to date on all her vaccinations.  She has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  She'd do well in a quieter home, without small children or dogs.  Won't you give beautiful Swizzle the happily ever after she longs for?

Thankful for Our Friends

We are so thankful for our amazing friends.

A couple of weeks ago, our pals over at Twinkletoe Tails celebrated Oui Oui and Mica Minnie Moo’s gotcha days by holding a commentathon (at their blog) and post-a-thon (at the Tabby Cat Club) to benefit the PAWS cats. Well, the events were a huge success, raising $100 to benefit the volunteer-initiated and -implemented “Habitat for Cats” catification project at the shelter. And THEN, another one of our close blogging buddies, Brian (of Brian’s Home) and his dad, matched that $100, turning it into $200 for PAWS! Is that cool, or what?


Big thanks to the Twinkletoe Tails gang (Oui Oui, MMM, Julie and Carlos, and their mom) and the crew at Brian’s Home (Brian, Sascha, Gracie, Zoe, Dolly, Kit, and Precious, and their dad and mom). We love you all, and are so grateful for your friendship, thoughtfulness and generosity. You’ll be excited to know that your generous gifts are the very first donations for “Habitat for Cats” at PAWS!


But our thank you train doesn’t stop there. Check out what some of our other blogging buddies did…

Recently, our close friend Sparkle the Designer Cat (and her human) held a highly successful commentathon to celebrate her birthday and World Cat Domination Day. With the $75 she raised, Sparkle chose to sponsor three cats – Patch, Sweet Pea and Oreo – who are waiting at PAWS for their forever homes! Pretty awesome, huh?

And THEN, our dear friends at The Cat on My Head, inspired by Sparkle and her human’s kindness, decided to sponsor a PAWS kitty, too! The Kitties Blue and their mom are sponsoring Swizzle. And they want to keep sponsoring her until she is adopted! They even made Swizzle an honorary Kitty Blue!


Thank you so much for sponsoring these amazing adoptable cats, Sparkle and the Kitties Blue. We appreciate and love you, and will do our best to keep you posted about how “your” kitties are doing.

And finally … thank you to everyone who took the time to post and comment to help make all of the events such a success. All of this wouldn’t have been possible without you.  Thank you all for your friendship, and for being YOU!

Have a great weekend. :)

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Buster :)

Buster is one of the sweetest, most gentle mancats we know. 


This handsome boy is 14 years young, and found himself at PAWS when his people moved and were unable to take him. :(
 

He loves scritches, being pet, and just hanging out. All the volunteers love him.


Now all he needs is a new happily ever after.

Buster is neutered, micro-chipped, and up-to-date on all his vaccinations. He has tested negative for FeLV and FIV.

Easy Like Sweet Pea

Check out beautiful and adoptable housepanther Sweet Pea, enjoying one of the shelter's awesome wall hammocks...


Here's hoping your Sunday is as easy as the one Sweet Pea is enjoying! :)

Sweet Pea is about 7 1/2 years old, and ended up at PAWS after her owner passed away.  She is (as her name suggests) super-sweet, gets along with other cats, and would do well in just about any home.  Sweet Pea is spayed, micro-chipped, up to date on all her vaccinations, and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Sioux


This is our sweet and gentle friend, Sioux.  Isn't she pretty?  Sioux longs for a nice, quiet forever home, but is enjoying lots of love and attention from her volunteer pals while she waits.  She's about 2 1/2 years young, and gets along well with other cats.  Sioux is spayed, micro-chipped, up to date on all her vaccinations, and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  Come meet her and fall in love! :)

Snuggly (Kitten) on Sunday

Like shelters everywhere, PAWS ends up with lots and lots of kittens during the warmer months.  Even though we wish there weren't so many of them, they sure are adorable.  Check out this little cutie enjoying some snuggle time on my arm:


And taking a nap afterwards:


Have a sweet weekend, everybody. :)

ON SUNDAY, JULY 13th, PLEASE stop by the Tabby Cat Club for our sweet pal Oui Oui's Gotcha Day Post-a-Thon to benefit the PAWS cats!  Oh, and please be sure to ALSO visit and leave a comment at Oui Oui's blog, Twinkletoe Tails, because she, her sister Mica Minnie Moo, and Mom Paula are having a Gotcha Day Comment-a-Thon, also to benefit the PAWS cats!  How awesome and generous is that? (Thank you Mom Paula, Oui Oui, Mica Minnie Moo, Carl and Julie.  We love you guys!)

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Mercury

Believe it or not, Mercury's eyes are even more mesmerizing than in these pictures! :)


This beautiful girl is friendly, sweet and playful.


We can't for the life of us figure out why anyone would give her up.


Mercury is only 1 1/2 years old.  She's spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, micro-chipped, has tested negative for FIV and FeLV, and gets along with other non-aggressive cats.  Won't you consider giving this sweetheart the forever home she so deserves?

Tabby Tuesday - Katy

This is our beautiful little tabby friend, Katy. Isn't she a cutie pie?  She's friendly, sweet, playful and gentle.  And as you can see, she has some pretty impressive paws. :)


Katy gets along well with other cats, and would make a wonderful addition to any family. She's about 2 1/2 years old, spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on all of her vaccines, and has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. Come meet Katy today!

FURever Home Friday! :)

Want a whole lot of good news to start your weekend?  Well, you've come to the right place, because today is FURever Home Friday!  And just look at who found their happily ever afters since our last adoption update!

Our sweet and funny friend Jazmin, who waited patiently for more than two years for her forever home...
Jazmin

Handsome Tammikuu...

Pretty and sweet mommy cat Mushka...

Lovebug Jeter...

Gentle and snuggly Grover...

...and a whole bunch of other awesome kitties!  Here's the complete (and LONG) list of the most recent PAWS graduates:

Abraham, Bisquit, Black Bean and Pinto Bean (together), Brandon, Bruiser, Casper, Czar, Dude, Egypt, Farfale, Frittata, Grover, Gypsy, Hecate, Jasmine (from Foster), Jeter, Kerry, Khal, Khan, Kiku, Lady Jane, Luna and Jazmin (together), Mercedes *, Missy, Moses, Mushka, Noah, Ophelia, Peachy, Petra, Portia, Puck, Rebecca, Tammikuu, Titania, Warner

Those of you who read our last FURever Home Friday post probably remember us mentioning that Mercedes had been adopted.  Well, she HAD.  But that home wasn't the right fit for our sensitive and sweet friend, so after a brief return to PAWS, she got adopted again!  And this time into a nice quiet home with a new mom who is willing to give her the time she needs to feel safe, secure and loved.  How amazing is it that a cat who waited so long was adopted TWICE in the span of a month?  The happiest part of all is that it appears she's finally and truly found her very own forever home.

Congratulations to Mercedes and her new mom, and to all of the graduates and their new families!  And to all the kitties still waiting for their own happily ever afters ... don't fret ... we promise you'll be loved and cared for at PAWS until your own gotcha days arrive.

Have a great weekend, everybody. :)
