Orphan Cats

My latest creative endeavour doesn't involve beads or fabric, although it did involve yarn at one point. It was another photo shoot of shelter cats - part of my ongoing project to work with talent photographers to get great photos of homeless animals to spruce up their online profiles and help catch someone's eye (and heart) so they get adopted.

This time around it was a photo shoot with Cindy from Muddy Love Pet Photography - we had a fantastic time and the photos she sent afterwards made me so happy! I know one of the things the volunteers at rescues struggle with is getting photos that show the animals as the really are: beautiful and unique and wonderful. Cindy really made these cats shine.

To help capture the work being done by these volunteer photographers, I put together a website with some photo galleries. It's still a work in progress, but I'm pretty pleased with it - please check it out, let me know what you think!

Now my task is finding some new websites (Vancouver-area) that are willing to post these great photos along with the animal profile so we can get these creatures some exposure.  If you have any suggestions, please comment!

And if you have space in your home and life for an animal, I really encourage you to adopt from a local rescue; there are so many wonderful animals waiting for homes. If you can't take on an animal permanently - consider signing up to be a foster home for a local rescue group: all the fun of a pet, none of the long-term commitment!

Coming soon - a progress update on my epic crochet spiral project (the project I actually learned to crochet to make, and then forgot about for several years).
