Quickly, here are this week’s group of furry faces! Each of these is available for adoption from Toronto Animal Services – North. You can arrange for a face-to-face meeting by contacting TAS directly. You can also have a virtual ‘meet-and-greet’ them via the Posh Pets Photography Facebook page each day.
And, don’t forget…’Feline Fiesta’ is on until July 4, 2013! That is a $25 adoption fee for every kitty in the shelter (plus the $15 license fee if you live in the City of Toronto). So many lovely guys and girls looking for forever homes!
When you hear of kisses and pets, most people think of lovely, sloppy, doggie kisses. Cats, with their little rough tongues, are not often considered as likely candidates. However, I meet many potential pets as I volunteer each week to take pictures of the adoptables at the local shelter, and it is obvious that each furry face has their own special personality. The odds of me finding a furry someone who likes to kiss increases dramatically every time I step through those doors. Case in point was Carrie, who is pictured here. This little girls is a fantastic kisser…especially if you have treats in your hand. Just look at that little tongue go!
Unbelievably, this 2 year old affectionate girl is still waiting patiently for her forever home, so please share her image far and wide. She is all packed and ready to go at Toronto Animal Services (ID#621755).
Next in the blog ring is fantastic Winston-Salem Steph Skardal Photography. Please check out who kissed her and the rest of the Beautiful Beasties gang this week!
Our Project 52 challenge this week was entitled “from the ground up”. In other words, try a new perspective and angle by photographing animals from the ground and aiming your lens UP at them. It sounded like fun, until you realize that I have two cats. Two senior cats who spend their days sleeping and lounging with the occasional water and food snack. Ever tried to get under a cat and photograph them? When they are laying down? Well, that is what Ripley and Lady Jane had to contend with this week and I probably need some kind of chiropractic assistance after all of the positions I contorted my body into!
This first image is Ripley looking down on me from the bed. I knew the image I wanted – just his little face with lots of negative space. The lens flare was just a bonus!
And then there is Lady Jane who lazes around all day. Literally. I’ve watched her for the past week like a hawk trying to see her in some kind of action and she really just has a chill, zen feeling about her. So, this is her shot. I am on the ground. My camera is on the ground. But then, so is Lady Jane…
Now, please take a look at what California Pet Photographer, Karla Ogilvie as she looked UP this week!
