FURever Home Friday!

Want some great news to start your weekend?  Well, you've definitely come to the right place, because it's time for another edition of FURever Home Friday!  It actually hasn't been very long since our last adoption update, but some really special placements have taken place this week, and we just couldn't wait to share them. :)


Remember our beautiful, playful and super-sweet friend Tai?  She first came to us as a mommy in March 2012.  Her babies were all adopted pretty quickly, but Tai waited patiently at PAWS until Wednesday, when she went to her very own forever home.  It seems this was simply meant to be ... the adoption counselor said it was a mutual love-fest from the moment that Tai met her new family. :)

You might also recall our recent post about adorable siblings Jordan and Jordana.  Well, these cuties have been adopted together!


Also "graduating" were Oliver and Delilah (together), and Bugsy!

And just when we thought it couldn't get any better ... we learned tonight that snuggly senior tabby Sparkle is being permanently fostered by our friend and PAWS volunteer Ginny.  Sparkle is a gentle lap cat who was found as a stray, and who happens to be blind with a number of age-related issues.  We hear through the grapevine that within two hours of being home, she settled in quite comfortably to her new room. :)

Finally, check out this picture of Sandy, who is in permanent foster with another fellow volunteer, Sian.  According to Sian, "Sandy is doing great.  She's enjoying three solid meals a day, bird watching out the window and loving her new office job!"


Have a great weekend, everybody!

  6. I always love reading the updates!! Our local shelter (Cat Care) has had many adoptions lately, too. They even had one kitty adopted after being at the shelter for 7 years!! I was sooo happy for her. :)

    By the way....what's the difference between being permanently fostered and being adopted? Just curious.

    In any case, I'm so happy these babies have found loving homes!

    1. As we understand it, "permanent foster" means the cat will live for the rest of their lives in that home, but that it is still technically available for adoption. It's usually something considered only when the cat has been at the shelter for a very long time, has medical issues, etc. It does the kitties a world of good to have a change in scenery, and to be in a real home with lots of love and a routine. And it makes room for the shelter to save more kitties. Does that make sense? :)

  10. These are some of our favorite posts. We love when other kitties find pawsome homes. Mommy is all mushy about Tai. Even since our white, blue-eyed Madison went to the RB, she can't see a similar kitty without getting all heartsick. So happy that Tai now has a forever home. Have a great weekend. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  28. Great news! Surprising that a beautiful cat like Tai had to wait almost two years for her furever home, but sounds like this was meant to be. Happy for Sparkle and Sandy too!
