Christmas at the Shelter

I paid a holiday visit to the no-kill cat shelter to make a donation and visit with the kitties, and here are some who kindly posed for me and my new camera (and if for some reason the slideshow doesn't show up on the blog, click here to go directly to it at my Photobucket account):



Donating to animal shelters and other rescue organizations is one of the nicest things you can do during this time of year. Cash is always welcome and much appreciated. Shelters also need food, cleaning supplies and other practical items to help care for their furry ones. Call your local shelter or check their web site to find out what they need most.

If you're ready to add a new member to the family, adopting a pet from a shelter is a marvelous way to provide a homeless animal with the home and love they need. You can also stop in at your shelter to spend some time with the residents if they allow visitors, or to volunteer as a helper. It really only takes a little time and care to do your part, and what you get back in return is absolutely priceless.

  1. Nothing is as photogenic as a cat.

    No matter where we donate, an animal shelter is always on our list first. My best friends came from there. :)

  2. I want the kitty sans an ear! Alas, my guy is not a cat fancier. At all. Unless one can keep them off the counter which, obviously from your first photo, is impossible. And why do kittens always sleep at some point in their litter box?

    I give to our humane society on a monthly basis. It's the least I can do. And we rescue our doggies. Unfortunately, I'd have a houseful and I don't want to be 'that' lady, you know?
