a special addition this week to cat tuesday, cat thursday!
for the past 3 years the Alley Network Project has hosted an adoption event for PAWS during one of the well known “first thursdays” in pioneer square. last night was the Alley Cat III and it was wonderful!
a gorgeous july evening in seattle, the music playing in occidental park, excited squees at the sight of the kittens. we set up the tent, complete with 6 kittens and 1 very handsome 1 year-old cat, captain boots, who was featured in this week’s cat tuesday post.
people strolled through, ooh’d and aah’d, some came in the tent to meet and fall in love with the young purr boxes. watching people who love animals, sit, relaxed, enjoying the peace that comes from the healing power of animals is amazing. families with young children, individuals, young and old, with that love in their hearts, that absolute joy of “falling in love” with their new family member, the excitement and happiness that is in their faces. it warms my heart and brings tears to my eyes, and i’m incredibly thankful to be part of it.
we had the most adoptions last evening than we have had at our prior 2 events. in total, 4 kittens found their forever families, and some very special people are experiencing the newness, adventures and joys of their adoptions. i’ve said it many times, animals are therapeutic, they have healed me in so many ways, and i know they do so for so many others.
here’s to love tiny ones! you’re in loving homes, hands and hearts today.
and a big thank you to Steph and my fellow volunteers!
