Catapalooza’s two-day event ROCKED with a total of 130 cats and kittens finding forever homes. PAWS was among the nine shelters and rescues to offer cat lovers the chance to meet and interact with cats and kittens of every description.

Our volunteers enjoyed seeing potential adopters visiting and playing with the kittens. Volunteer Marie Bailey described her favorite adoption of a feisty female kitten named Jersey. “Jersey was a small kitten with a lot of spunk” said Marie, “I was so happy to see her bond with her new family.” Jersey, it turns out, was a birthday present for Mom. The whole family came to Catapalooza to let Mom choose her gift—the best way to gift a loved one with a pet.
Whenever considering pets as gifts, PAWS recommends a gift certificate instead. Let the recipient come to the shelter and choose the pet themselves for the perfect match. You can pair the certificate with a fun gift basket full of all the things a new pet will need. PAWS has gift certificates available at our Lynnwood shelter and at PAWS Cat City in Seattle.
