Memories caught through my camera - the many faces and things I love.

My Birthday

Today was my birthday and I spent it with friends who share my love for animals and rescue work. It was the best day ever!

I was honored to be able to go to Lorie's house and take picture of some of her kittens she is fostering for a local animal control. She has 9 kittens, ranging from 4 weeks to 5 weeks old. There is nothing more wonderful than playing with little kittens! All of these kittens are up for adoption and will be spayed or neutered before going to their forever homes!

This is Elsie Grace - a very beautiful white and grey tabby mix. She is a real pistol and loved posing for the camera. Here she is demonstrating her ability to do "kitty push ups".

This is Amelia - a beautiful tabbico (tabby calico mix). She is about 4 weeks old and is a real sweetheart.

Meet Daisy Mae - she is also a tabbico. She and her littermates are being foster by Lorie, a great friends and cat lover.

When Daisy Mae eats she still suck food but is learning how to "eat" food. Since she and her siblings were taken away from their mom so young they didn't get a chance to nurse very long, therefore, they are still sucking on food and blankets. They are so much fun to watch play and explore their surroundings.

Here is Elsie Mae (again) after some thing scared her. She bushed up her tail and arched her back (a little) but then went on playing and running around the porch.

Kittens need to be socialized when they are young so they learn to play and interact with people.

I hope everyone that reads my blog knows how important it is to spay and neuter your animals. There is such a major over-population of dogs and cats in the United States, especially in areas like the south where the laws are not enforced or in existence to help control this over population problem. Euthanasia is not the answer - spay and neuter is!

They will be healthier and happier because you love them enough to have them fixed!
