For the fourth consecutive year, Best Friends Animal Society is sponsoring “Back in Black” – a nationwide campaign dedicated to increasing awareness and adoptions of black cats and dogs. This year’s campaign will run throughout the month of May. Click here to read more about this adoption campaign.
Good Mews Animal Foundation in metro Atlanta is one of the Best Friends’ No More Homeless Pets Network Partners that is participating in the “Back in Black” adoption promotion. Throughout the month of May you can adopt a black cat or a black and white cat for only $50. This a less than half of the regular $125 adoption fee and you will receive a goodie bag along with your new kitty.
Kate is one of the many Good Mews cats available for adoption for a reduced fee during May and she recently posted a special message on the Good Mews Facebook page:
Hi, my name is Kate. As you can see I am black, so I am part of the Back in Black adoption special in May! This special is supported by Best Friends Animal Society. If you do not live in Georgia, or you want to adopt a dog, then just check out their website. There are a lot of other rescues and shelters participating!
But if you live in Georgia, please consider adopting a black or black and white cat from Good Mews! Preferably, think about adopting me! I am a really nice girl. I love attention and will follow people around, meowing, until they bend down and pet me.
So you are probably wondering why such a friendly and CUTE girl has not been adopted yet? Well, I have been diagnosed with small cell lymphoma in my lungs. So I guess people don’t want to deal with that. But currently I am doing just fine and am only on steroids. At some point in the future, I will probably need more medical care, but I just live for the moment. Right now I am doing well and I just want someone to love me. I am happy at the shelter, but I would be much happier in a home, with my very own person. When I start to get sick, I want someone to hold me and kiss me and tell me everything will be alright. So if you are thinking about adopting, please think of me. I promise I will make you as happy as you will make me.
Because I am part of the special, I have a reduced adoption fee of $50 and I go home with a goody-bag (if kitchen cat Kazi has not already tore them all up!)!

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.
