It was too cold for dogs or people to be outside much this past weekend, so that meant I got to visit the cat room at Orphans of the Storm®. I can’t think of a much nicer way to spend a cold day!
This one did a good job posing for pictures
This orange one was not interested in sharing lap space
This cat was pretty mellow
This little cutie could use some extra TLC
A cat who likes belly rubs! We were meant to be.
The crowd that suddenly appears when the staff walks in with treats and toys
This cat let me know it wanted a treat
The orange cat still was not sharing lap space!
This sweetie wanted some treats too
People say black cats are unlucky, but when I had FOUR black cats all trying to climb into my lap at once, I couldn’t have felt luckier (you can see the fourth’s tail and whiskers in the bottom right corner). The one with the blue collar is the cuddliest cat I have ever met.
This gray cat is super pretty
This little cat just wanted to be pet all the time
What better way to stay warm in the middle of winter than snuggling with your 15 closest friends?
This sweetheart only has one good eye, but that doesn’t slow it down at all
This one monopolized my lap for quite a while (and the one in the back is wondering when it gets a turn)
After spending about an hour in the cat room, I got to know a few cats that are in individual kennels. Zoe ended up at the shelter after her owner passed away. She has come out of her shell a lot and once she spends a little time with you, she gets very snuggly. I also met Buster, who likes people but isn’t a fan of other cats, so if you’re a one-cat kind of household then you should meet him. Lastly was Smiley, who hangs out with the kittens and likes being held like a baby.
I’ll be back to meeting more pooches next week!
