Fluff & Air

Today was my third trip to the Humane Society of West Michigan. I am having so much fun volunteering! There were several kitties I almost brought home with me. You’ll see why in the pics below…


Blitz Winter is a 3 month old female. I swear kittens are made of fluff and air. This one was PERFECT. She just got out of surgery and was a little loopy, but soooo sweet and friendly. I could die. I love her.


Frederick is a 3 year old male. He was so soft and had the best purr. I probably spent the longest with this guy just because he was eating up the attention.


Buster is a 10 year old male. He was in a room with two other cats, and he was by far the biggest social butterfly. I had to take pictures of all the cats in that room and he wouldn’t stop photo bombing the other cats. He was great.


Lulu is an 8 year old female torti. She was so cute curled up napping in her cage, I felt bad waking her up. She was a sweetie though, and obliged for some shots.


Muffin is a 10 year old male. He is a very big guy. His eyes are the opposite of being cross-eyed. I didn’t know the term for that and I Googled it. It is called “divergent strabismus”. The more you know.


Rita is a 9 year old female. She was nice and tolerated me, but aloof.


Lilly is an 8 year old female. She is a sweet cat, but scared at the shelter. She doesn’t like surprises and can be skittish. The picture I got of her face cracks me up. She looks like she’s smiling!


Pepper is a 1 year old male. He was really chill and happy in his bed, so I just let him be and grabbed a couple quick shots before heading on to the next.


Polly is a 5 year old female. I walked into her room and I couldn’t find her. Turns out she had somehow flipped over her cardboard box so she was trapped inside! Poor girl. She was happy to be freed.


Pumpkin_NameSweetie and Pumpkin are 10 year old sisters and will be adopted as a pair. They are two of the biggest cats I have ever seen. They look almost identical except Pumpkin has a white spot on her back. They are both very calm and happy.

The Dog That Looks Like Zuul

Today I stopped by the Humane Society of West Michigan to photograph several of their adoptable dogs! I was secretly hoping for puppies. But not this time. I found out they go so fast; the real need is for pictures of the older dogs.

This is Bear. He is a 1 year old sweetie pie. He still has that soft puppy fur. The description on his kennel said he was “shy” but I thought he was very affectionate and friendly! He loved to be pet and he still has quite a bit of puppy energy.




Next I met Cole. He is a black mix. Of what I am not quite sure. I think he is half lab / half Zuul. For real you guys. If you are fans of The Ghostbusters, please adopt and rename him Zuul. That would be amazing. He is a playful 7 month old. He loves belly rubs!





Joseph is a beautiful Great Pyrenees. He is 6 years old and is a gentle giant. I think he could pass as a polar bear. A Chinese zoo tried to pass a dog off as a lion, so why not? I had a hard time getting a photo of him by himself because all he wanted to do was lean on us and be pet. Joseph is heart worm positive but is being treated and will go on to be a happy, healthy guy.



Last but not least, meet Alpine! She is a 1.5 year old with the craziest tongue I’ve ever seen. It is hilarious!!! She is STRONG, has spunk and loves to play.
