We love to hear updates on the animals we adopt out, and often have photos and letters mailed and e-mailed to us. Recently, we received this e-mail from Leslie that left tears in our eyes:

Dear PAWS,

I adopted a black kitten, Ebony, from your Lynnwood facility in July of 2004 as a first birthday present for my other cat, Brando. For over 16 years, sweet Ebony was by my side through the ups & downs of life. From a serious car accident, to Brando's death from FIP at age 4, to moving from Seattle to Arizona (just her & me), to getting married and adding another cat, two dogs, and kids to our family.

Ebony1Sadly, Ebony crossed the rainbow bridge last night after battling kidney disease for over a year. I am volunteer cat caregiver at Friends For Life in Gilbert, AZ and often wonder what becomes of the cats in my care who find forever homes. I'm sure there are some at PAWS who wonder the same thing so I hope this letter answers one of those questions.

Ebony had a good, long life with me and was a wonderful companion. She will be missed greatly by the many whose lives she touched. Thank you for enriching my life with this adoption and for all that you do for these animals.

-Leslie

Our condolences go to Leslie and her family on their loss, but we also send our thanks. Thank you, Leslie, for giving Ebony a loving home her entire life. We do indeed wonder about the animals that were once in our care, and always strive to make such a wonderful match and enrich two lives (human and animal) in the process.
