I’ve been wanting to volunteer at a local animal shelter for quite a while now and finally took action by contacting the Humane Society of West Michigan to see if they were in need of any photography. I’m so glad there is something I can do to hopefully help some of these cats and dogs get a new and much deserved home! I have a feeling at least one of them will ultimately end up at my home 🙂 HSWM is an amazing place to find a furry buddy so if you’re thinking of adopting a new cat or dog please check them out! Here are the kitties from my session yesterday afternoon.
Tilly is a three year old gray and tan tabby girl who was very content to be petted and photographed. She has a sweet little petite face and gorgeous yellow-green eyes.
Jeri is one of Tilly’s roommates and is another tabby but a darker brown and black. She is also around three years old and has the most striking green eyes!
Mary Ellen is a two year old tortie who was more interested in eating than in looking at me and or my camera, but once she was full she finally came over to say hi and was very friendly. From this photo it is hard to see her tortie colors but they are definitely more distinctive on her back.
Archer is one of Mary Ellen’s roommates and is a tall, lanky and handsome one and a half year old boy with white socks. He was very interested in the kitties next door and was entertaining me by pawing at the glass to their room in between coming over to check me out and get some lovin’.
This is Cindi Lou Who, who is no more than two (actually ten months). She wants a new home for Christmas before the Grinch comes to take away her Christmas tree and roast beast! She is a beautiful little tortoiseshell girl and is sharing her room with another gorgeous tortie named Noel Bell (see photo below).
Noel Bell is even younger than Cindi Lou Who, about eight months, and is a very inquisitive little girl. While I was trying to get shots of the other cats she actually walked from her perch on the shelves right up onto my back.
Martha May Who (top) and Betty Lou Who (bottom) are two more kitties from Whoville. They are both about one year old and mostly black except for a little white patch of fur on thier chests. They are waiting for Santy Claus to pay them a visit!
Meet Molly! She is a sweet two year old with a sharp tuxedo and stand-out whiskers. In the play room she was a little shy at first but quickly warmed up to some petting once she was accustomed to her new surroundings.
Galavant is one big, handsome boy! He is about four years old and LOVES his catnip. He is also a big sweetie and was standing up on his back legs to get some extra attention in the play room.
This is Grinchie. Despite his name this little 5 month old kitten is super sweet and looked like he was sitting under the mistletoe waiting for a big kiss!
Last, but not least, is Buttercup. This little kitten is not quite sure what to think of her home here at the shelter just yet, but seems very sweet and has a beautifully colored coat.
Stay tuned later this week for some pup pics!
Please feel free to share this blog – the more eyes, the quicker these little guys and gals will find themselves in a new forever home!
