Falling in love is an occupational hazard when you volunteer at an animal shelter.
Last week we were all smitten by gentle Timon.
He came into PAWS as a stray, and seemed relieved that he didn’t have to fend for himself anymore.
Well, wonderful news! He has left the shelter for his very own home.
Timon’s stay was brief, but he managed to leave big paw prints on our hearts.
Treasure is known for her shiny black coat and outgoing personality.
She seems relaxed here, but once the Red Dot makes an appearance, Treasure is an enthusiastic huntress!
Introducing beautiful young Tessa, of the amber eyes, gleaming black coat, and green highlights.
She’s very friendly and sweet; not to mention a helpful painting assistant.
Five year old Mason‘s family fell on hard times and couldn’t afford to care for him.
Fortunately, they brought him to PAWS where he’s getting lots of attention, and the best care possible while he waits for a new home.
Little Christina isn’t even a year old.
She is a shy youngster, but she really loves to play!
Leona is only two years old, but she’s had a lot of experience and responsibility.
Rick and I are always on the lookout for cats when we travel.
We encountered this big boy striding along a street in Barcelona.
He is a sculpture created by the artist Botero.
Rick spotted a distant cousin of our Rufus the Red in the Alhambra.
And here’s a lovely calico.
Believe it or not, our favorite animal siting wasn’t a cat!
