Happy Tail: Spooky

We adopted Spooky over 16 years ago and she's been such a wonderful member of our family. She was recently very ill and we thought it might be time for her to leave us but she made an incredible recovery from a serious infection. I love how she likes to put her paw on me to make sure I'm close by and I no longer get upset when she sits in the middle of a puzzle I'm working on. For the last 10 years, she's [...]

Happy Tail: Faucet

Nearly one year ago I walked into Helping Paws, hoping to find an older cat that needed a loving home. I was instantly tempted by the kittens and playful cats that came running over when I stepped inside. Faucet was one of the shyest cats in the room- he didn’t come running up to me or seek out any attention- but contently laid on top of the cat post in the back.
