What makes us glad? Friendships that last a lifetime!
From Elizabeth and Nicolas:
"Not long after moving to the city, we walked into your adoption center in Old City, and Benji and Cassie were there waiting for us. Though they were fairly young and healthy, no one had adopted them because you refused to separate them, and because while Benji was outgoing, Cassie had trouble making new friends. Still, they were exactly what I was looking for- a bonded pair of siblings who needed a home.
Benji settled confidently into his new surroundings right away, purring and playing, but for the first 2 weeks we couldn't get within 5 feet of Cassie. Still, she seemed content to be with her brother, so we gave her time. Now I can't imagine a happier cat! She owns the apartment with her tail held high and will jump into any open lap for a cuddle. We love them both, but it has been especially rewarding to earn Cassie's trust. I'm sure it would have been much easier to give up on her and place Benji in a home right away, and I'm so grateful that you didn't do that. As you can see, they belong together :)
So thank you so much for the work that you do, and for never splitting up these sweet siblings!" #PAWSMarchGladness #PAWSis10
A reason to be glad: this hospice kitty had other plans!
From adopter Sarah: "This is my old lady. She was found as a stray and taken to ACCT where she was pulled by PAWS back in 2014. I took her home as a medical foster since she was not getting over her cold. After concluding that she had some other potential medical issues, she became my hospice kitty. Well that was almost 3 years ago and she is still going strong! She is as old as can be, arthritic and raspy but she has a sweet gentle soul. I am always happy to see those big eyes and grumpy face still with me when I come home each day. She seems to have a few extra lives saved up!! Happy she is part of my little feline family."
How does your PAWS pet make you glad? #PAWSMarchGladness #PAWSis10
"I'm glad for my PAWS cat Abbie, the caretaker of the house. She sleeps outside my door every night so she can protect me. During the day, she is my shadow - always keeping me in sight. But even more than that, she has been like a surrogate mother to all the PAWS foster cats that I've brought home. Here's Abbie with some of her many foster siblings." #PAWSMarchGladness #PAWSis10
