Frenchy Finally Finds a Home

Sep27

 

Members of the unofficial "Frenchy Fan Club" were grinning ear-to-ear as the 10-year-old tabby, who had been waiting more than a year for a forever home of her own, nuzzled the hand of her adopter and proud new papa, Walt.

Frenchy and AdopterFrenchy came to PAWS as a stray on August 19, 2011. She was one of those kitties who need time to adjust to new people and surroundings, which can be challenging in a shelter environment.

For more than a year, PAWS staff and volunteers tried every angle to find the right person who would appreciate Frenchy's smart, sweet, and sometimes sassy, nature. Several PAWS staff members even started an "Adopt Frenchy" campaign complete with custom-designed t-shirts!

On September 26, they finally found that person. Walt Saveland had just lost his beloved cat Taylor to cancer, and was looking for another feline companion. PAWS staff members suggested he visit with Frenchy.

During their visit, Frenchy performed her special trick, "sit," that PAWS staff and volunteers had taught her using clicker-training. Walt decided that Frenchy was a character just like him and decided to adopt her!

PAWS staff and volunteers were overjoyed.  Volunteer Zach was so happy to see Frenchy finally going to a good home that he generously paid her adoption fee. Fellow volunteers chipped in as well — Megan made up a goodie bag filled with Frenchy's favorite toys, and Jen gave Walt a ride home so that he wouldn’t have to take Frenchy on the bus.

After 398 days of waiting, Frenchy finally found a home and family to call her own.

Thanks for the great news!

Thanks Susan, we are so happy she found a good home!

glad to hear that she finally found her own home, thanks for your efforts.

Was reading PAWS blog one evening and ran across this adoption.
I think I was friends with the cat's new owner about 40 years ago.
I knew Mr. Saveland when we were at Northwestern. Would be fun to hear from him and Frenchy! Marj Passini
