Meow! My name is Winston
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with cats.
Winston is a very sweet boy that is so happy to now be safe inside with people that care about him. He has gone through a very scary time and now he can sit back and relax and sleep peacefully! Winston was living outside in a neighborhood and was trying so hard to find someone to take care of him, but people were pushing him away and being mean to him. When he would approach the people that lived in the neighborhood, asking for food, shelter or love, they yelled at him and told him to scat or kicked at him! Can you imagine? He became so scared and finally realized his situation as hopeless, he started hiding under bushes. One lady in the neighborhood saw what was going on and it made her sad, so she sent out a plea for help. Good Mews found out about the situation and jumped into action! Our shelter manager contacted the lady and went to the neighborhood to get Winston. When Winston saw her he crawled out from under the bush, gave her a meow and sat down beside her. I think he knew she was there to help him. So now Winston’s nightmare is over. He is a little on the skinny side right now, but we are going to fatten him up and find this guy a good home. He is so nice and just loves people. He likes attention and will purr when you pet him and will push his head against your hand in appreciation of your kindness. I think Winston would make a great friend for someone. Cats that go through such hardship are so happy to get a loving home that they pay you back with so much love.
Good Mews offers an alternative to traditional animal shelters in the Metro Atlanta area by providing a no-kill, cage-free haven for homeless, abused, or abandoned cats until placing them in permanent, loving homes. Good Mews promotes public awareness regarding the value of pets, animal welfare, pet overpopulation, and quality human-animal companionship through education and outreach programs.
Good Mews is open every Saturday from 10 - 4, the first and third Sunday of the month from 1 - 4. In addition, we participate in many offsite adoption activities throughout the month. Check the Calendar of Events on our website for details!
Adoption information can be located on our website (www.goodmews.org). Adoption applications can also be downloaded from that site. We participate in the ASPCA Meet Your Match Felinality program.
Good Mews is the oldest no-kill, cage-free cat shelter in Georgia. We serve all of metro Atlanta and work to place cats in permanent loving homes.
