Adopt-A-Cat Month prompts PAWS adoption specials

Fees waived for adult cats every Thursday in June
Jun 06, 2014

June marks a national awareness campaign to inspire locals interested in adopting a pet to consider cats as ideal companions.

Progressive Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) has joined the American Humane Association’s month-long campaign to increase feline adoptions in the U.S by offering adoption specials on cat adoptions in June.

Adoption fees will be waived for every cat over the age of 3 every Thursday in June.

“Our adult cats offer so much love and companionship to cat lovers looking to either start their fur-families or expand them,” said Kay Joubert, director of Companion Animal Services at PAWS.

“Cats are the most popular pet in Seattle, which is why we opened Cat City in Seattle to complement our companion animal operations in Lynnwood.”

Joubert said this special adoption program in June would help adult cats find their “forever homes.”

PAWS offers potential adopters two locations to meet and greet loveable felines looking for their forever human companions: Companion Animal Services shelter in Lynnwood (15305 44th Ave. W.) and Cat City in Seattle (5200 Roosevelt Way N.E.). More information can be found online at

Here are some of the adult cats at PAWS looking for their forever homes this month:

Sylvester, 7 years old, is described as “quirky” and “investigative.” He’s fond of scratches behind the ears and is fascinated by the mysteries of water. He’d prefer a home with children over the age of 12.

Ula, 11 years old, likes to strut her stuff. She is a “sweetheart” and a “purrer,” and will let you know when she wants some lovin’. She is looking for a home where she can be a devoted lap cat.

Simba, 10 years old, is described as a “quiet” and “gentle,” looking for a new lap to call his own. He loves to be petted and brushed. He'd prefer a home with children over the age of 8.

Daffodil, 8 years old, is a “lovely lady,” who loves attention almost as much as she loves her food. She’ll head-butt and lick your hands when she wants pets. She is best suited for in a teen or adult-only home.

Milosh, 13 years old, is described as a “seasoned gentleman” and a “love bug.” He likes to spoon with you while you pet his fur and scratch his ears, cheeks and chin. He also enjoys chasing feather toys, high perches and looking out windows. He does well with other easy-going cats. Milosh would appreciate a home without small children.

Goliah, 14 years old, is a "gentle giant" looking for a nice owner to curl up next to. He was fostered in a house without children and with three other cats. His favorite activities are being petted and eating – he loves Friskies wet food. He is very sweet and spry for his age.
