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?

Hugs and headbonks,
Gracie, Moosey and Zoe (and Tracey and Kevin, too)

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...

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. :)

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Gizmo :)

Sweet and handsome Gizmo is one of the official greeters in PAWS Cat Room 4.

As soon as anybody enters the room, this friendly and outgoing mancat is there to welcome them. 

Come see for yourself! Gizmo is about 7 years old, neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on all his vaccinations. He has tested negative for FIV and FeLV.  And yes, he's really and truly as cute as he looks in these pictures. :)

International Box Day :)

We've never met a cat who didn't like boxes.  Come to think of it, it seems that most animals we've ever met kind of enjoy being in, on and around them.  It's a phenomenon that's been noted by pet bloggers the world over, and today is the day to celebrate the unabashed love that animals have for boxes. :)

Here's Khan (who recently found his very own forever home), getting his last turn in one of the PAWS Meeting Room's favorite boxes:

And our beautiful pal Izzy (still waiting to be adopted), staking her claim to the very same box:

Check out the official International Box Day badge featuring some of our best blogging pals (and our own beloved Moosey!), and created by our awesome friend Ann at Zoolatry:

Happy International Box Day 2014!

Sarah - Friendship and Trust

The transition to life at PAWS hasn't been easy for our beautiful friend Sarah.   The sights, smells and sounds of a shelter can be overwhelming, especially for sensitive kitties like her.  But as we've found time and again, consistent love, kindness and patience often help cats like Sarah realize that people aren't so bad.  She's not exactly a lap cat yet, but as you can see from these pictures, she definitely enjoys hanging out with her human pals.  She also loves playing with laser toys!

It's not clear why Sarah waited until now to turn a new page. We're just glad she finally did. :)

Sarah is about 10 years old, spayed and up-to-date on her vaccinations. She has tested negative for FIV and FeLV. She would do best in a quieter home with no children or other cats.
