Take Me Home

My regular readers know that I try to volunteer once a week taking photos of the cats at the Humane Society of Utah. I’m always so impressed by the beautiful animals available for adoption. In tandem, I tend to devote a blog post to the cats, featuring photos of some of those currently waiting for loving, forever homes. I hope you enjoy viewing them.

  1. I look forward each week to your humane society post. You capture the different personalities of the cats, it makes me want to bring them all home.


    1. Thank you so much, Jean Ann. Photographing the cats at the shelter is a love-hate thing for me. I love going down and taking the photos, but I hate that I need to and that these animals don’t have homes. Sasha, the 7-year old Siamese shown in this post, tried everything he could to get me to fall hopelessly in love with him. 😀


  2. Great photos! And kudos to you for volunteering weekly at the shelter. I’ve volunteered twice at my local shelter and it’s quite heart-breaking to see the conditions they live in. They certain deserve better.


    1. Thank you for your comment and kind words.
      HSU does a great job of providing the animals with a clean and healthy environment and has a great group of staff and volunteers. What is unfortunate is that animals end up in a shelter because people fail to spay and neuter their pets. They need to visit a shelter just once to better understand the suffering their failure creates.


  3. Love how Tommy’s little tooth is ever so slightly poking out!

    It’s great that you’re able to pitch in at the shelter. It’s all I can do to keep myself from adopting all the cats at Petsmart when I go in to buy litter every few weeks.
