Sirayana, Trump, and Juliette

I am so happy to have my friend Lisa guest post over here today! She had contacted me wishing to share her new project, Orphan Animal Pics, and being a {crazy} cat lady, I really couldn’t say no. Plus, our cat Cleo (pictured above) was rescued from the BC SPCA just over ten years ago and I can’t imagine my life without her!


Let’s get honest for a minute here. What’s the real reason the internet exists? Is it for craft tutorials? Online shopping?  No. These things are awesome, but the internet exists for cute cat photos. We all know it, so let’s get down to business.

Sometime last year I was checking out my friend Ben’s flickr account to see his latest photos of his cats – he’s a great photographer and his cats are hilarious so it was always something interesting – and it occurred to me, if we could get photos this good of animals in shelters, people would adopt them right away. 

Fortunately, my photographer friend was up for the idea and thus was born the Orphan Animal Pics project. Now I’ve got two fantastic volunteer photographers on board and we connect with animal rescue groups in the Lower Mainland to get fantastic photos of some of their lovely animals. Since a lot of the animals rely on the internet to be noticed, we figured a smoking hot profile photo would help, just like in on-line dating – do you have space in your home for one of them?  If not – please consider being a foster home for your local rescue (always a need), or making a donation to financially support a worthy local rescue group.

BROKEN-HEARTED JULIETTE DESPERATELY SEEKS ROMEO… actually, seeks anyone willing to provide a loving home, but now that you’re reading about her….Juliette is a loving, trusting cat who was left behind by her family – how rude! Juliette, being a quiet, healthy, medium-haired black cat, doesn’t attract much attention at the shelter. She has settled among her roommates, and she’ll greet a visitor with enthusiasm if she can get them on their own without being crowded by the other cats. She is a gentle, affectionate little girl who deserves a caring forever home. She is such a nice little cat and so pretty with her fine, soft fur and smokey highlights – a real treasure for a new family… continue reading here

Trump is one of a kind – a giant Himalayan manx (no tail) cat! Gorgeous Trump is such a handsome boy it’s hard not to fall for his good looks and wonderful charm. Despite his good looks, he’s been through the shelter system twice, the first time when his owners were moving and could not take him and this time Trump was brought back because he was being too dominant with the resident cat… continue reading here.

Sirayana is a gorgeous friendly girl, who flew down from Terrace with her babies to go up for adoption! Her kittens all have homes but she’s still waiting! She’s very loving with people.  She is polydactyl (extra toes) – which was considered “lucky” by sailors. Sailors also believed polydactyl cats to be superior mousers and ratters.
