Not long ago a semi-feral mother cat had 2 female kittens in my backyard. I have adopted all three. This is Tayla, one of the kittens, playing in her favorite box. She takes her toy mouse in there and will roll the box all around the floor.
She is a very affectionate cat, which is surprising since she spent the first few months of her life outside, without any human contact. She still loves playing outside, but is just as comfortable curling up inside in her favorite spot for a long nap. She is half siamese, half typical tabby cat. :)

I plan to donate a portion of sales of any of my cat pictures to our local cat rescue organization SOCKS (Save Our Cats and Kittens). They are a great non-profit organization and no kill shelter that rescues hundreds of cats from being euthanized at other shelters every year.

    this is so sweet! I bought my cat one of those tunnels.. and he wouldn’t even go in there lol…

  • Thank you, Thoughtful! lol You can never tell with cats! Tayla loves to play in this. I bought her a really nice pet bed though, and she won’t even look at it. She would rather lay on an old towel! Go figure!

    Adorable-the world needs more persons willing to share their homes with the many avandoned small kitties we have…the problem is bad here in Greece as well-and the people are as inhumane as elsewhere…

  • Thanks so much for your comment, Katerina! I am sorry to hear that abandoned kitties is a problem in your part of the world too. There are just not enough people or organizations to help them all – it is very sad. Helping these 3 kitties has been a great experience for me. Tayla has become my baby, she is an awesome cat. :)

    My problem is that one stray seems to have passed on the words of “good food-loving arms with Katerina”-because at one point, I had more that 25 kitties, various birds, and 3 shepards…I had to find homes in the end, and it broke my heart!!!

  • Wow, I bet it was so hard to part with them! It is wonderful they all now have homes though. Animals are definitely drawn to kind hearted people. They must somehow sense it, and know they will be safe. All those kitties, birds, and dogs were very fortunate to find you!

    Thanks-the funniest was that they all wanted to share my single bed-you can just imagine having 25 purring sounds-soothing until one tries to roll over or move at all…the smaller ones used to just “attack” the moving arm/.leg etc…
