Three kitties looking for love

This past weekend I got to meet and photograph three wonderful kitties. They're currently being fostered through Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS) and are looking for homes of their own.

First up is Cup

This super playful and loving kitten is all black except for two adorable white whiskers on either side of his face. He's very friendly and loves to play with his fosters' other cats. He also gets along well with their two young children and has no problem being handled by them. Visit Cup's AARCS profile to learn more about him and to apply for adoption.

We are family — i've got my sister with me...

Next up are Hemlock and Hollyhock, two-year old bonded sisters. They're beautiful tabbies and Hollyhock is Cup's mother. She was timid at first but it didn't take long for her to warm up to me. She's very playful and loves to talk to you. Hemlock is more shy and quiet than her sister. Her foster mom says they both are very affectionate and will come sit on laps for hugs and affection. They're very good with the foster family's children too. One adorable feature on both these kitties are the little tuffs of fur at the top of their ears. These two beautiful girls are looking for a loving home together. Visit Hemlock and Hollyhock's AARCS profile to find out how you can meet and adopt them.

Are you my mother?

This past September I went for an orientation session at Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS). While there I saw a beautiful sweet dog who'd had a litter of nine (nine!!) puppies. They were still nursing (poor mama) and were all adorable. One stood out to me though. She was white with a black patch over her left eye and had a black right ear, and was a bit smaller than the others. My heart skipped a beat.

Imagine my surprise when a volunteer opportunity came up to photograph a certain little black and white puppy ... and it was her! Her name is Mona and she's available for adoption!

This weekend I met sweet little Mona and was greeted by a happy, friendly, bouncy puppy full of excited puppiness exuberance and joy. My goodness, she definitely stole a piece of my heart. And those ears! They are so adorable the way they pop up and then go down again.

Mona has some special needs but with the right person willing to help her this girl is going to bring someone so much joy and love. She gets along great with cats, other dogs, and people. If you want to walk in the door to be greeted by a puppy so thrilled to see you she can barely contain herself, Mona is the dog for you!
