With names like Oscar and Bruno, these two have to be dashing gentlemen, right? Well, they are. I've only ever had short-haired cats in my family, so getting to know these long-haired sweethearts was wonderful. Their paws are so furry!
It seems that dogs tend to be professionally photographed a lot more often than cats, and I'd like to see that change. A lot of cat owners think their pets will be too skittish or not look into the camera. This photo shoot is evidence that even nervous cats can get beautiful photos taken of them. The black and white beauty Bruno is a very anxious cat. He tends to hide under furniture when confronted with strangers. Given a little bit of time to adjust to the situation, and the ability to stay in the comfort of his home made Bruno at ease enough to be photographed. A few treats, ribbons and a quick pop into his favorite
hide-out (a Vera Bradley bag) also went a long way :)
The beautiful grey, green-eyed boy Oscar was adopted from Kent Animal Shelter here on Long Island. Kent does amazing work to save the lives of homeless pets and to prevent overpopulation that leads to even more homeless animals crowding shelters. My friends and I are walking this September 25th to benefit Kent Animal Shelter at their Wines and Canines Walk at Baiting Hollow Farm Vineyard. This will be our 3rd year walking. We've raised about $1,200 for Kent in the past and we'd love to add a lot more to that this year. If you'd like to help out a very worthy cause, click here to be a hero for animals.
