Mineral Wells Shelter | Miss Lenny | Adire Photography

Hi everyone! I’ve got a spitfire on my foot and her name is little miss “Lenny.” She and her siblings came from the Mineral Wells Shelter. When I get my fosters I never know what I am getting- meaning how skinny, sick, GI problems, ear mites, aggression problems they may have- I just really don’t know.

 I sat in my truck patiently waiting for the family of six to arrive after making a 3 hour journey to me. When I first saw Lenny I noticed she was much bigger than her siblings and she was also more talkative. On the ride home she was meowing up a storm and I couldn’t blame her…I hate being a vehicle for more than 3 hours too. Once we got home, I opened up all the cages and cute little kittens came running out.

That evening Lenny and her siblings were playing as if they were never at a high kill shelter. As I was taking pictures- Lenny would not leave my foot alone and this was her very first picture. IMG_8445Can you see the claws and dry skin scratches on my foot!! Ouch!….but she is so cute right??!!? Just in the last few weeks I have seen Lenny grow into a nibb”ly”, and very playful kitten. She does have a mischievous side of her and I think thats due to her taking the “BIG” sister role to another level. LOL. 

Lenny is a cuddler and also a sweet finger biter, she also loves toes and ankles! Her most FAVORITE thing to do is play with feathers…lots and lots of them all at once. No matter where they are she is after them. If they are high in the air- she is jumping for them and if they low on the floor- she is rolling in them.IMG_0925 IMG_0922 IMG_0921IMG_0940IMG_0933IMG_0512IMG_0516Where ever they are- she is CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY for them.IMG_0918Lenny is the typical playful, loving, toe and ankle biting, feather fighting kitty kat….she will also sit nicely for her portrait to be taken. IMG_0898 IMG_0906aaawwww she sits so nicely for the camera. Now I know you are looking at her thinking “she’s cute but I don’t want a black cat” but let me give you 3 reasons why adopting a black cat is awesome.

  1. You will never lose you black cat in the snow (if it should ever snow in Texas again…lol)
  2. A black cat will match any décor. You won’t have to redecorate your house to coordinate with your cat.
  3. Love knows no color! Your black cat doesn’t care what color YOUR hair is!

Now you have read Lenny’s blog… are ready to take the next step? OK-GREAT! Now head on over to Pawsitive Karma Rescue and read all about How To Adopt and then fill out a Cat Questionnaire- once you have gotten a reply from the PKR team we can setup a meet and greet and you can spend some time with Lenny- once you know for sure you want her -let PKR know and they will send over the contract and once its final- you can take sweet Lenny home and live happily ever after.

Mineral Wells Shelter | Tink | Adire Photography

On July 2nd a motherless family of six came to me, and they are ohhhhh so adorable!!! Three of the six have already been adopted so I will be just concentrating on the available fosters.

Today is all about Mr. Tink but I call him Mr. Stink because he is an attention hog!!! I mean like all the time! I was just now trying to type this blog and its almost like he knows I am working- so in his little mind he thinks I need some cuddle time…LOL!

Tink was the smallest one of the six and the one who was most likely not going to make it but thankfully for my friend Leanne reached out and got pledges for the six and then the awesome Pawsitive Karma Rescue got them tagged and transported to me. 

When I first saw Tink I was inlove and sad because he was under weight and sick. He didn’t play like the rest of the kittens- honestly he could barley move. I was feeding him non-stop and then I started the medication. Within one and half weeks he played for the first time….it was a great day for me and Leanne! IMG_0397That’s my Tinky boy…isn’t he just handsome- oh and those long white whiskers are an added bonus! Tink is a GINORMOUS cuddle bug and only lives for lots of love and affection. He is surely a candy-coated kitten! He has started to really shine in the last week by playing more and more with his siblings. He likes to trick them by walking by them like as if he has no interest in playing and then- BAM! Sneak Attack! LOL! Tink is a meow’er, purr’er, and a biscuit maker. Everytime I take his picture his mouth is open because he is talking to me- “foster mommy…pet me please…I will faint if you don’t!” LOLIMG_0402 IMG_0405 IMG_0435 IMG_0463 IMG_0466 IMG_0472 IMG_0475 IMG_0476 IMG_0484 IMG_0495IMG_0997IMG_0990IMG_0998IMG_1002IMG_1005IMG_1006Again- handsome right?!?! If you are lQQking for the purrfect kitten that isn’t to playful but is craving attention, loves to cuddle 24/7 if you let him, likes to sleep curled up next to your face and purrs you to sleep then Tink is your boy! He also has great litterbox manners and loves doggies. He will be ready to go home as soon as Sunday, July 27th- but first you have to go to Pawsitive Karma Rescue and fill out a Cat Questionnaire, then set up a meet and greet with him- after you fall inlove you contact PKR and proceed with the contract- once this is all done Tink will be ready to go home with you and you guys can live happily ever after.

So please stay tuned

 

Mineral Wells Shelters | Sanoma Loves Toys | Adire Photography

Yes Sanoma is still here with me and I know one day she will get her forever home with the right person/family. I know I have said that Sanoma loves to play with ribbon and other toys but I never really got any pictures of her playing- until now!

I spend alot of time with her and this day I was playing hide-n-seek with my hand and her expressions are just the greatest. She was sitting and staring at the window and then turn and get into the sneak attack mode- then she would just look at me like i was crazy!ImageImageImageImageImageImage

After she was done playing in the bedroom she wandered off into the living room and I remembered I just bought her a new toy. It was a little battery operated little bug and when you turn it on it vibrates and crawls…..so do you think Sanoma loved it?? She SURE DID and then she killed it! LOLImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Sanoma is really a great, loving, very playful cat, the only thing wrong with her to most people is that she is over the age of one. She is however, great at NOT clawing up the furniture, she IS GREAT at the litterbox, she is NOT spastic like a little kitten- she is a GREAT CAT!

All PKR adoptions include spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchip, dewormer, flea/tick/heartworm preventative, 30 days of free pet insurance, and a guarantee that your new family member has been fed an all natural and high quality food while in our program. 

Please go to Pawsitive Karma Rescue or click on this link to fill out a Cat Questionnaire for Sanoma- someone will be in touch within 24 hours.

Conroe & Mineral Wells Shelter | and Then There Were Four | Adire Photography

I can’t believe how quiet the kitten room is getting now because five of my foster babies have been adopted. I couldn’t be more happy for them and the families getting such a great, very social, and loved kitten. Some of the adopters ask me “how can you not be upset?” I reply “because I know they are going to be loved by you”- and its true. Yes it hurts my heart a little but I know soon another family will need me to give them a safe place.

I still have four babies left and they all need a home- Milo, Cleo, Goomba, and Bijou. They are all great kittens and play 24/7 with naps in between. The love to wrestle, play with the toys I made them and climb the ginormous cat tower that another PKR foster mommy gave me. I know you dont want to read this blog- just take a look at the pictures!ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

All of Pawsitive Karma Rescue’s cats are nurtured in loving foster homes until they are adopted. All adoptions include spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchip, dewormer, combo test, flea/tick and heartworm preventative, 30 days of free pet insurance, and a guarantee that your pet has been on a high-quality, nutritious diet since it has been in our program. The adoption fee including all that, is just $100, which is much less than what it would cost you to get a “free” cat and then get all that vetting done yourself. A pretty great deal! And you’d be saving a life, as all of our cats are rescued from high-kill, area shelters, and every adoption allows us the space to rescue another cat or kitten.

TO START THE ADOPTION PROCESS: Fill out the Cat Adoption Questionnaire on our website:http://fs18.formsite.com/pawsitivekarmarescue/form5/index.html

Conroe + Mineral Wells Shelter | The Cat House | Adire Photography

As a photographer- I am always looking for props for future photo session for kids, dogs, couples….ect. While I was shopping at Goodwill I came across this very muddy and dusty doll house. I knew I could make it into something fun for my foster babies and future foster babies- so I got it! I really didn’t know how to make it fun so I took it home and stared at it. All the ideas came pouring in and then I was out on a hunt for materials. I went to Hobby Lobby and got felt, glue, pom poms, sisal rope, feathers and blue paint. Of course I didn’t take a before picture with nothing on it- but take a look.Image

Pretty cool right?? So now flooring…I wanted to put carpet but I didn’t have any I didn’t want to try and purchase carpet squares. My husband and I just put wood flooring down in our house and we still had some vapor/padding left over so I used that and put the felt on top. ImageImageImageImage

Once all the flooring was done I got to decorating. I painted “Safe House” on the top because I want all my fosters to know that its safe here and will always be! I drilled holes to put hanging toys for them to play with and I made sure I used a high temp glue gun because these kittens are rough! LOL It took me 5 days to finish this project and it was so worth it!ImageImageImageImageImage

I took it into the kitty room and they all smelled it and all of them weren’t to sure about it- but it didn’t take them long to start playing on it. OH MY GOODNESS….they love it!ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

This was the best thing I ever bought and fixed up- it’s definitely cheaper than buying a super duper cat tower!!
