Because It’s a Monday and You Need This

So. This happened at work last week.

As part of our efforts to help as many animals as possible, we have a dedicated foster program that tries to save underage babies who come into the shelter and need extra specialized care. Once they’re placed in foster homes,they are brought in for routine medical needs. On this day, fosters had brought in a litter of kittens and a litter of two week old bunnies. It just so happens that my coworker is adopting one of the kittens, so I told him I would take a few pictures of him.

When we realized the bunnies were in the building as well, we just couldn’t resist. . .

Could your Monday be any cuter?


It’s Raining Cats, Dogs. . . and Bunnies?

If you’ve ever wanted a pet – no matter what kind – check out your local humane society first! Many shelters have bunnies, hamsters, guinea pigs, ferrets, small farm animals(!), and reptiles available for adoption, to name a few. Small animals are given up and lost just as much as cats and dogs, and you can save a life by choosing to adopt these little guys.

I had bunnies for many years when I was growing up. I didn’t rescue them, I got them from a neighbor – but now that I know how many shelters are full of them, I’ll adopt if I decide to get one in the future (duh).  Just like myself, many people don’t even know that small animals are available at shelters. Bunnies and other little critters can make great pets if you’re ready for the responsibility. They’re not the easy household accessory that many parents think, but if you’re willing to put in the effort they can be great companions.

After photographing these little creatures today, I have fallen back in love! I always forget these kinds of animals have the personalities that they do. Every time I walked away from the guinea pig he would start squealing at me. Then there was the bunny who totally posed for the camera. And the ferret who flirted from inside the cage. These furry cuties deserve a chance just like the homeless dogs and cats.

Maybe next time I pick up a foster dog I’ll pick up a bunny as well. . . :-)



The Rain: It’s My Turn

Yesterday it rained. I don’t like the rain. I often stick up my nose to the rain and refuse to get my precious paws wet. It seems fostermama got a little tired of my drama, so she put me in this green suit. I instantly became a Kermit the Dog, much to my chagrin.

It is my understanding that this green thing fostermama has made me wear is quite the tradition in our foster family. My foster half-sister Zabora wore it, and so did my half-brother Baxter. I will admit, it did keep me dry – but I will not use that as an excuse for them to get away with making me look like a frog! I can’t believe even FosterG was in on it!

I guess I have to get used to this outfit since it’s likely there will be rain again before I move on to my forever home. At least I look cute, right?

Puppy Monday!

Here are a few pictures to give you a Monday morning pick-me-up.

These puppies are spoken for, but they’re still representatives for all the puppies in shelters and rescues awaiting forever homes. The myth that you have to buy a dog in order to get it during puppyhood could not be more false!

I’ll talk this week about some of these puppies and where we got to play with them. In the mean time, I hope you enjoyed that brief dose of excessive cuteness as much as I did.
