TGIF!! I thought it would never get here! I am Winston and I am here to talk about the Flea Market. So I was told there was a picture of me in a frame in the frame section of the flea market. I don’t know if anyone has bought it yet, but how can someone just walk by a framed picture of me and not want to take it home? How pretty would that look on your shelf? Well, if you go to the flea market this weekend, be sure to look for it and if it is still there, buy it!! If it isn’t there, then look around..there are other framed picture of the Good Mews kitties.
Other than the framed picture of me, there are a lot of other great items! We are adding new items every weekend, so if you have already shopped, be sure to come back to see what else we have. We are only open for two more weekends, so you do not want to miss out! We are also having a bake sale. If the Good Mews volunteers entered a bake sale contest, they would win, hands down! So be sure to buy lots of goodies!
I also wanted to share some good news with you. A kind donor paid my adoption fee, so be sure to come and meet me and maybe adopt me? I would love a forever home.
OK . . . so see ya this weekend at the flea market!!

Winston is a ten-year old male white domestic short hair kitty and is available for adoption. The following is some additional information about Winston from the Good Mews website:
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 is a cage-free, no-kill cat shelter offering an alternative to traditional animal shelters in the Metro Atlanta area. They provide a safe haven for homeless, abused, or abandoned cats until they can be placed in permanent, loving homes. Since 1988, Good Mews has placed over 7,000 cats in forever homes. The shelter receives no government support and relies solely on donations of time, services, goods and money from its many supporters and local businesses. Good Mews is home to approximately 100 residents on any given day – most of whom reside at the Shelter in Marietta, with some cats residing in foster homes.
