happy tails

One of our favorite things at Good Mews is to see our shelter cats in their forever homes! It reminds all of us why we do what we do everyday in our efforts of “finding good homes for good kitties.” We hope you enjoy reading all of our happy endings stories and seeing how great the cats are doing. We encourage all of you to send us your cats’ stories and photos to place on our website! Please email Michelle Kirkham with your happy endings!

We got Cinnamon(formally known as Luella) about a year ago. She was the first of three cats we have. She loves to rub up on people and snuggle them. When me and my sister saw her, we wanted her so bad that we wrote a Power Point to convince our parents. And it worked!...

Hello! My name is Tyler and my fiancee, Theresa, and I adopted Lucy last August, since renamed to Slinky because of the way she slinks around the apartment. When we came to Mews to look at cats, I already had a couple in mind from ones we had seen on the website....

 I adopted a 7 year old cat named Bolt from your facility February of this year.  When I came in I had requested a cat that was sociable, genuinely liked people, and would be good living with a dog.  I met and fell in love with Bolt and brought him home to be a member...
