Val's Story...
Hi! This is Val (though I do like to be called Valerie) and I am going to write first since I am braver than my brother. I am first to explore and investigate new things. I love being cuddled and will groom you back. If I lay next to you I like to have at least one paw touching my human companion. I was the first to realize the two dogs in my foster home are just smelly harmless beasts that make loud noises – my brother has taken more convincing. I love my brother and look out for him – we are like bookends most of the time. It can be hard to tell us apart at first but I have to admit I have the female middle age spread. I like catnip and playing with toys. And I LOVE to get in the shower after my foster parent is done and lap up the water. My favorite things include hanging on the screen porch and watching the birds, kitty treats, and tuna juice poured over my canned food. One thing that concerned my foster parent – I tend not to jump on furniture and it has taken some coaxing to get on the sofa or bed and sometimes just need to be picked up.


Hi! This is Chai. I have the same likes and loves as my sister but I am a bit more cautious about sudden sounds (such as pointless dog barking). I will hang outside the shower waiting for my turn, sometimes showing impatience and getting my head wet. I love to lie on my human’s chest while they are reading or watching TV and have a need to clean their fingers – especially if there is lotion on their hands. I have finally figured out the dogs are just large hairy things that live in this house and when they are quiet I will hang out with my foster parent. I like to sit in the cat tree in the sun and later take naps under the tables. Both my sister and I like our new cat siblings who are also senior citizens. At first, they were not happy we were here but now they share our food, litterbox, and toys and we all take turns grooming each other. And you should know that we always use our litterbox and only use the scratch pads and posts. The whole cat family likes to join our foster parent when she is doing yoga at home and lay around her yoga mat!
So from both of us, we are looking for our forever home. It is sad that the only parent we have ever known gave us up but we know that there is someone out there who will appreciate our gentle nature and the love and joy we can give.

Val and Chai must be adopted together.

About Good Mews Animal Foundation

About Our Shelter...

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.

Come Meet Our Pets...

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!

Our Adoption Process...

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.
