Summer at the Shelter

The college kid and I spent the morning at the local no-kill cat shelter, where I finally got a decent shot of the one kitty who has been dodging my camera for two years:

He reminds me of Venus the two-faced cat, but he doesn't like having his picture taken, so this was quite a photo coup.

We saw so many other lovely, adoptable felines while we were there, and I want to share some more pics. Sans explanation Blogger is no longer allowing me to embed a regular slideshow from Photobucket, so I'm going to try the flash version, which for equally mysterious reasons it doesn't block:

  1. I want another kitty! :(

    Alas, the hubby doesn't.

    I love the pictures and the cats all look well cared for. What a coup getting the picture of your camera shy kitty!

  2. We've been talking about getting a cat for a while. I'm just not sure our border collie will leave him in peace, anticipating much noise and altercations. Maybe when she's a little older and more mature.

    Glad you finally got a pic of your camera shy kitty. I feel the same way about cameras. LOL.

  3. Very pretty calico! But are you certain your shy boy is male? Calico kitties are almost always female, as the color determination is linked somehow to the X chromosome. I have a soft spot for kitties and wish I could take one home...
