"Shooting" at the shelter series
When I was at the shelter this weekend, I wanted to take some photos of the rabbits and other small animals that would benefit from the vegetables I was donating. I ended up taking a number of photos I wanted to share so I thought it best to make this its own post.
The little guinea pig was such a charmer. He totally wanted to sell himself to me, it was really cute. His head was dark but his body was lighter.. If I had been in the market for a pig, I would have snatched him right up.
One thing I didn't tell you Monday was that as I was driving up to the shelter I was noticing the very dark sky and I hoped that the rain wouldn't start until after I had brought everything in. Fortunately, it held off and I promptly forgot about it, but when I walked into the cat room after taking photos of the bunnies I noticed the sky had totally opened up.
A couple of kitties were being cuddled and the people holding them were kind enough to let me take the photos. By this time the rain had let up and I decided it was time to head to Petco where they were having a kitten adoption event. There was a segment on tv that morning that showcased Elsie and Emma (that link goes to my facebook page where you can see my recording of the segment with my phone. This is the link to the official video)and the shelter rep mentioned that they would be up for adoption at the event. I had little hope of actually seeing them again as I assumed they would have been adopted before I got there, and this was the case. Each of them went to a home with other kitties, and the volunteers smiled when they talked about their adoptions so I'm sure they were well pleased with the people who were lucky enough to get them. The event started out with twenty kittens and when I showed up a few hours into it more than half of them were gone.
And yes, I wanted to hug all of the kittens, and no, I did not, but yes, I did hug and kiss (and inhale) a few of them.. it was nice. I miss kittens.
