Believe. Merry Christmas to all, from Colehaus Cats.

In the spirit of believing, we chose to help a cat in need by bringing someone home for the holidays. Pearl is an eight year old girl who was surrendered to the shelter a few months ago with a small handful of other animals when her elderly owner could no longer care for them. She loves being talked to and purrs easily in addition to being an unusually beautiful black, brown and ginger orange striped tabby who misses belonging to a family.

We’re giving her some space to become used to our quiet routine but have introduced her to brushings (and checked for fleas – not a one!) and treats. Even though she’s a girl who prefers to be by herself, we’re hoping for a Christmas miracle by waking up tomorrow morning with her snuggled closeby instead of sitting in her chosen spot under our tall bed. But if not tomorrow, we’re made of patience. Maybe it’ll happen the day after or next weekend or next month. We can wait.

  1. We’re all a bit leaky eyed. Mom says that she believes cats and woofies in this situation deserve all the love…having been in a loving home and then their owner must give them up, not because they want to…breaks our hearts. You are very special and wonderful for giving Pearl a home.

    Merry Christmas. We are sure Santa Paws is going to be very good to you.

  2. Your gift of a home to Pearl made Mommy all teary. May you be blessed with Karma as precious as has been given to Pearl!
