The furry truth about pet photography

The Snotty-Nosed Cat

"I didn’t know dogs and cats could get colds…” said a co-worker to me the other day in response to my comment about Lexington having a bad snotty nose. Yes, indeed, cats get colds as evidenced by Lexington’s snot-crusted right nostril and cheek, and runny right eye,...

The heroes behind so many of Orange County’s adopted cats (and dogs!)

When we think about animal shelters, so many of us focus on the final (and most exciting) step: pet adoption. I know I did. Until earlier this year, when I listened to Terry Gross's interview with Hannah Shaw, aka The 'Kitten Lady' on NPR. Wow, was that interview...

The Motherhood of Cats

Earlier this month, as I read and heard many “Happy Mother’s Day” sentiments, I thought about how I missed that boat. I didn’t even think about wanting kids until I was in my late thirties. At that time, I had a boyfriend who didn’t want kids. Preferring a...

How well do you know your cat?

A lot has been written about cats and their personalities. This is because many of us personify our cat’s behavior. I know I do. I speak about my cats like they are my children. “Maximus gets his fondness of sleeping in from my husband!” Or “Wilbur’s got MY appetite!”...
