Kitten Year End Finale

Got Craft was a very busy event and many wonderful people bought cards in support of VOKRA and Katie's Place.  I also heard some great stories from people who have adopted from VOKRA or fostered for them.  (There are still cards available on etsy.)

I managed to squeeze in one last photo shoot before the end of 2014. Couldn't get a photographer so I tried to do my best for Homefinders Animal Rescue myself.

Indoor photography in a dark room with kittens is tricky but with enough patience (and photoshopping) we managed to get some adorable photos. It helps to have adorable models. Look at these ridiculous rascals:

The thing with kittens this tiny is that it would be oh so easy to put one in my pocket and take it home. Such temptation.

I resisted this time.

Also took my first photos of a hedgehog! And there were some beautiful adult cats too.

Fingers crossed these creatures all find happy forever homes quickly.

New Cards - Available online & at Got Craft

Haven't posted in a while, but I have been doing cat-related things!

The most important news is that I have coordinated the printing of new cards this year to sell & raise funds for rescue groups!

This year it's a set of 4 for Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue with the most adorable kitten + martini glasses taken by Tanja. And two featuring Katie's Place residents - a reprint of the very popular white Nicole card, and a new one featuring a handsome tuxedo boy, Damon (photo by Cindy Hughes)

The cards are available online at my etsy shop and I will be selling them at the best Vancouver craft fair there is - Got Craft on Dec 13 and 14.  All proceeds from the VOKRA cards go to VOKRA and ditto for Katie's Place.

I'm really hoping to sell a boatload and hand over a big pile of cash to help make a happy end of year for these amazing volunteer-run rescue groups.

Please buy a few cards and/or share the link with your friends.  Any support is appreciated!

Cindy is Amazing

Cindy posted the first batch of photos from our trip to Katie's Place and they are luminous and lovely.

Check out her gallery here: 

I could look at her photos all day long.  Doesn't she make you want to take all these cats home?

I'm thinking about turning a few of these into cards to sell as a fundraiser again this year - but deciding which ones will be tough.

If you need photos done - check out Muddy Love Pet Photography.  Cindy also does people photos. You won't regret it.

Back At Katie's Place

Hello!  Hiatus is over - time to get back to business. And by business I mean getting awesome photos of shelter cats so you can't resist them and adopt them into your loving homes.

I've been back in Vancouver for a few months now and finally got myself out to Katie's Place!  The always wonderful Cindy Hughes of Muddy Love Pet Photography went with me and took a ton a photos; I can't wait to see them.  Remember this stunning photo?

While we wait to see Cindy's pro photos, you will have to make do with my photo of Panda interrupted mid-bath, which I think is pretty adorable.

So many wonderful cats at Katie's Place. I wish I could bring them home with me. Maybe you can?
