I’m expanding my repertoire! In an effort to express my love and appreciation for all animals, I have decided to expand the breadth of this blog to also cover some of the beautiful canines that I have photographed. Don’t worry cat lovers! I will still be posting plenty of photos of amazing cats as well.
I’m on a mission. I will use the power of photography to prove that cat people and dog people can peacefully coexist!
Now for some pups…
Age: 6 months
Breed: Pit Bill
This dog was FULL of energy for the first 10 minutes that I was shooting him. He was jumping all over me, licking my face, eating my camera strap, tugging at my apron… And then, he just crashed. He curled up in my fellow volunteer’s arms and passed out. Oh, to be a puppy!
Ages: 9 weeks and 13 weeks
Sexes: 2 male, 1 female
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
It is a perfect fall day here in Chicago. Crisp air, multicolored leaves, and kittens.
Name: Emily Rose
Age: 13 Weeks
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
This little kitten was such a joy to photograph. The light was perfect, casting an artistic shadow onto her adorable face. Emily Rose has the sweetest, most gentle temperament. Mature far beyond her 13 weeks, this little girl would often stare dreamily out the window and act as the peacemaker in the other little kitten brawls. It is no wonder she was adopted the same day this photo was taken!
PS: Sorry I’ve been away for so long! My “real” job has been crazy busy and well, sometimes life just gets in the way of us doing the things we love the most.
Names: Sarah Jean and Blanche
Ages: 1 year and 5 years
Sexes: Both Female
Breeds: Domestic Short Hair (DSH) and Domestic Long Hair (DLH)
Why is it that pictures of animals with their tongues hanging out are so darn cute? I have to say, tongue shots tend to be some of my favorite photos because they have so much personality. Without further ado, here are some great tongue shots to brighten your day:
Age: 9 years
Breed: Domestic Long Hair
When you look into Firecat’s eyes, they exude wisdom, like an old soul. Kind, gentle, and intuitive far beyond his 9 years, Firecat is a shelter favorite. Oh, and he has the softest, most gorgeous burnt orange fur, similar to a mane. If you need a sympathetic ear to tell your deepest secrets, Firecat is the cat for you. All he will ask for in return is a warm lap and a scratch behind the ears.
Name: Kat Von D
Age: 1 Year
Breed: Bengal Mix
Little miss Kat Von D definitely displays the behaviors of your typical bengal… She is a total lover, vocal, and LOVES playtime. She got so excited about the camera that she immediately wanted to play “peek-a-boo” with it!
Names: Pepper, Salvadore, & Marble Loaf
Sexes: Female, Female, & Male
Ages: 12 years, 6 months, & 1 year
Breeds: Domestic Long Hair, Domestic Short Hair, Domestic Medium Hair
Happy Friday the 13th! Let’s change the superstitions about our friend le chat noir… Instead, today we will celebrate the beauty of the black cat.
Young or old, long hair or short, a black cat is the perfect addition to any household. If you are thinking about adopting a cat in the near future, consider a black cat. They may not be as flashy as some of the other cats there, but they are classic, timeless, and you know what they say: black goes with everything!
