Photo Friday | Feline Friend

feline friendHi everyone, so as some of you might have noticed yesterday, I got a little ahead of myself with my days and posted Photo Friday.  I was gutted when I realized it was actually Thursday and I would have to wait another day for my Friday night glass of wine.  But fear not, it is now Friday and all is good in the world as I shall be indulging my weekly habit very soon.

Todays photo is one I took during the Summer of my foster cat Harriet.  She was 10 weeks old in this pic and such a beautiful cat.  I think I spent the whole month she was with us taking pictures.  As you can see she is very photogenic and has a beautiful dilute tortie coat.

Harriet found the most wonderful home with a middle aged couple who’s kids had all grown up and left home so they were looking for a new “baby” so to speak.  They send me regular updates and even kept the name I gave her which I thought was lovely of them.  Fostering is such a nice thing to be able to do and I love when they get the happy ending they deserve and you played a little part in that happy ending.  Its a wonderful feeling to see a pet go to their forever home.

 So thats it for this week guys, I am feeling much better now and hope to get a book review done this weekend and who knows, I might even tackle a book tag. Have a great weekend xx

    Aw! This kitten is super adorable! I love tortoiseshells! They’re always so pretty and this one is a perfect example. Glad to hear the kitty got a happy ending and I think it’s great of you to foster pets. I wish I could do that, but I think I’d get a smidge too attached and I like having a pet of my own. Still, this is great! Keep it up! ^.^

      I can understand that, fostering isn’t for everyone Melanie and it is hard to remain unattached. I struggle with that too and their are many failed fosterers out there who end up adopting their kitty. Its not the worst thing to fail at though is it? 🙂

      I love tortie cats. They have pretty awesome personalities and are that bit more vocal I find. They also like to get into everything and find mischief wherever they go. I have a fondness for ginger cats, I find them quite laid back and lazy 🙂 And affectionate of course, very affectionate!!! xx

        Very true! There are far worse things to fail at, but I’d feel bad because once you adopt one it becomes harder to foster afterwards unless your adoptee is really good with others. *sigh*
        Haha! I’ve only ever had one kitty myself. He was my birthday present when I was five and he just lives forever (probably because he’s a bump on a log and doesn’t do anything. :p) But I have to agree it’s fun to see each cat’s personality. I’ve met a few torties before and they are quite rambunctious. :p

        Aww, your cat sounds cool, I love lazy cats. Yes torties have big personalities and make their presence known. They are not for everyone. Harriet was a lovely cat but I wouldn’t have been able to keep her long term as she was very demanding. She needed a family where she was the centre of attention. I already have a little boy who demands my attention so I don’t think I could have handled two demanding rugrats 🙂

      I know right, she is such a stunner. Thanks, that is very nice of you to say Simon. I have always loved animals since I was a little kid, I don’t understand how people can’t. There is so much abuse of animals in this world and it breaks my heart 😦
