Blog Guelph: Catography

I've always enjoyed the company of cats and am glad to have  Kenzie and Nyx, in my life. I adopted them from a rescue group about 5 and half years ago. Kenzie had been found wandering the streets of Hamilton when she was just 3 weeks old, and Nyx and her frightened siblings were found abandoned in a box. Now they're living the lives of contented indoor cats.

I've taken tons of photos of Kenzie and Nyx but none as cool as this series of kitten shots by Ian Thomas. They're Humane Society kittens who hopefully also found great homes... as indoor cats.

Why am I emphasizing "indoor"? Well, it's safer. I walk a lot and see way too many lost cat posters. And recently an  information bulletin was posted on the City's website which states:
"In anticipation of an increase in coyote sightings, the Guelph Humane Society and the City of Guelph are reminding residents to supervise small children and dogs playing outdoors and keep cats inside." 
I hope everyone will heed this warning.


Note: I think dogs are awesome too, having grown up with a great dane and a blind australian shephard. Cats are just better suited to my lifestyle. :)
