And adoptions of cats? We became aware of how many there had been this year as we were creating this collection. We hardly had a choice. Nevertheless, despite the challenges, we have collected the sweetest and most touching cat adoption tales of 2022 for you guys right here because we sincerely want to conclude this year on the most pawsitive note. It’s time to get to know the year’s newest faces!

As always, we want to express our gratitude to everyone who adopted this year. We hope you and your new cat have a long and prosperous life together. Happy holidays to all of you, and we hope to witness even more adoption success stories in 2023.



1. “Good friend recently got a new dog…”

“Good friend recently got a new dog who had been terrorizing their 12+ year old senior cat to the point of bad depression. Asked if I would take him in so he could be happy again. I’ve never had a cat but said yes to help. Turns out he’s a cool dude and seems to be very happy and comfortable here”
