Sometimes, what we’re looking for is right in front of us. We’ve had a lot of visitors to PAWS lately, all walking through our Lynnwood and Cat City locations searching for their perfect companions. Many have left with their new best friend, and we’re always so proud to know we helped to build that family.
As always, our ‘Adorable Adoptables’ stories cover two companion animals who – despite all of their eager tail wagging or welcoming purrs – can’t seem to attract their perfect human. The volunteers who see them every day; those who walk them and brush them, those who cuddle them, who settle their nerves and soothe their yearning hearts, know how precious and loving these little beings are and they know how deserving they are of potential adopters’ attention.
So we hope our tales of their true personality, will encourage you to take a second look.
This week’s feline adorable adoptable is the always sophisticated miss Celeste. Regal and elegant, and mighty choosy of those worthy of her attention, lovely lady Celeste is a looker with a crooked ear. The ear, a tiny blemish on her otherwise model-perfect good looks, gives a hint to her life lived. A Siamese/mix of 10 years with a light brindle coat – and if you’re lucky enough to see them – sparkling sapphire blue eyes. We say lucky, because Celeste doesn’t let just anyone see the true glimmer of her dazzling personality.
Grumpy Cat might look the part, but Celeste is the real persnickety feline deal. Celeste doesn’t suffer fools gladly, so you may be able to attract her attention for a playful swat at one of her favorite toys, but you’ll have to win her heart if you want anything more. And she’s got oodles of affection waiting for you! Celeste isn’t interested in a fast pace, busy home. She’d like a quiet, adult only environment where she can thrive and feel like someone special’s one and only. Celeste's adoption fee is waived until September, so don’t put off meeting her at our downtown Seattle Cat City today!
Over in doggy world, at our Lynnwood Companion Animal location, Reba awaits her true forever home. Adopted once then left behind in a divorce dispute, Reba is pure love in a very compact body.
She’s been at PAWS longer than most and we don’t know why she keeps getting passed over. She’s friendly and welcoming to anyone who approaches her. She’s quick to break out her great big smile with every greeting and eager to show you her fluorescent orange ball, in the hopes that you’ll know how to play!
A mix of Australian Cattle Dog, Terrier and American Put Bull, this shorty-with-a-story deserves a second look. All of 9 years old, her affection is undeniable and all of the volunteers coo over her easy personality and well behaved walking etiquette. With eons of energy and an affinity for car rides, Reba is a co-pilot in waiting for the right active adventurer.
In her quietest moments, she’s a lapdog extraordinaire and knows exactly how to curl up for an afternoon nap. Reba respects her feline friends, but wouldn’t want to live with one. She’d rather be dashing off to a regular weekend road trip!
