PAWS found love matches for more than half of the kittens and cats that went to the Meow in Mukilteo Adoption event in July. Four out of eight kittens found their forever homes and one of our three adult cats found her “purrfect” match.
Venice, a lovely one-year-old white and black cat, was adopted by a couple who saw her online and came all the way from Gold Bar to meet her. The meeting was love at first sight. “It made me happy to see Venice adopted,” said Laurel, a PAWS volunteer at her first adoption event, “especially amidst the crowds of kittens who were available that day.”
PAWS volunteer Nina Pruneda relayed that initially, another woman had been interested in Venice and been impressed with her calm demeanor, but ultimately declined the adoption to check out all the other cats at the event. Everyone was disappointed for Venice. “Little did we know,” Nina added, “another couple on the side had been watching the visit. They jumped right in to say they were very impresseed...and she had to come home with them.”

Our volunteers enjoyed watching our cats find loving homes. PAWS volunteer Heather conveyed her favorite adoption of a six-toed kitten. “A lady came into our tent and the little six-toed girl moved right into her lap and stayed there...until she had convinced the lady she was the cat for her.” Heather added, “You could tell they were immediately matched. It was sweet.”
