Kat Von D Plays Peek-A-Boo   Leave a comment

Name: Kat Von D
Age: 1 Year
Sex: Female
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!

Who is that sexy cat?   Leave a comment

Name: Lima
Age: 2 Years
Sex: Female
Breed: Siamese

When most cats come into the shelter, the abundance of windows with their own kitty reflections staring back at them doesn’t seem to phase them a bit. Then there are the few, like little Lima here, who are totally engrossed by the cat staring back at them. Maybe it’s because Lima just likes looking at her own loveliness. I mean with eyes like hers, who wouldn’t?

Kitten Friday! Would you make a good kitten foster parent?   2 comments

Names: TBD
Ages: 6 Weeks
Sexes: 2 males, 1 female
Breed: Ragdoll and Domestic Long Hair Mix

Considering adopting kittens but not sure if they are for you? Maybe you should consider becoming a kitten foster parent!

For kitten Friday this week, I went to the home of Amy, a PAWS Chicago kitten foster mom. Her latest fosters are too cute for words. These little balls of puff were semi-feral when she got them a few weeks ago, but now they are little love bug thanks to Amy’s great work. We need more fosters who are as awesome as Amy!

Huh, I don’t get it…   Leave a comment

Name: Trent
Age: 2 years
Sex: Male
Breed: Bengal Mix

While I was photographing the seriously gorgeous cat Trent, he was posing like a rockstar. He gave me everything from angelic to blue steel, but my favorite look is the confused one he gave me when he first heard my camera focusing. The funniest part is that he must have kept that look on his face for at least the first 10 pictures I took before he proceeded to lick (“clean”) my lens and settle into posing. Thankfully, I brought my lens cleaner with me!

Ragtime-R.I.P. McBoots   Leave a comment

Name: McBoots
Age: 1 year (approximate)
Sex: Male
Breed: Ragdoll

So I’ve gotten hooked on Tremé recently, and if McBoots were a human, I could totally picture him living in New Orleans, eating good food, listening to some jazz, and chasing after the pretty ladies (he’s neutered, but shhh… don’t tell him that!)

Huckleberry   7 comments

Name: Huckleberry
Age: 5 Years
Sex: Male
Breed: Norwegian Forest Cat/Maine Coon Mix

The reaction when people see Huckleberry is often one of disbelief and awe. The length, thickness, and volume of his fur puts that of your average domestic long hair or Persian to shame. Is it really natural for a house cat to be that big and puffy? Why, yes it is; but only if you have some Norwegian and some Maine in your blood!

Nerese-sister to lil’ blue eyes   Leave a comment

Name: Nerese
Age: 1 year
Sex: Female
Breed: Ragdoll Mix

There is something undeniably cute about that “deer in headlights” look. Nerese and her brother (lil’ blue eyes post) came in together and thankfully were adopted together. What an attractive and sweet pair.
