As you can probably guess from the name of my company and the ever-present pet portraits on this blog, animals are very close to my heart. Recently I had the opportunity to photograph the feline residents at Humane Society Silicon Valley’s Milpitas location, which of course is exactly my kind of volunteer work (fun fact: all the cats I’ve owned have been adopted from the Humane Society). Fortunately, the majority of cats I photographed at the beginning of this month have found homes! I’m always extremely grateful to live in an area where abandoned and stray animals often find homes easily (the shelters in this area are primarily no-kill, due to a total lack of overpopulation at the facilities). Of course, some pets are always going to have a harder time finding a human. One example? Toffee and Mocha, a bonded (adult) pair who will only be adopted out together. Sweet, calm, eager for affection, and adorably cuddly with each other, this is a pair of very charming Siamese kitties.
A little more info about this pair: both healthy, spayed adult females; Toffee is approximately 4 years old, and Mocha is about 2; Toffee is spunkier, and Mocha is quiet and observant, but both are playful and ready to love their new human! If you live in the Bay Area and that sounds good to you (and how could it not?) please consider heading to HSSV in Milpitas to meet Toffee & Mocha, as well as the rest of the friendly residents at this shelter! (Psst: they have a big room full of kittens. You don’t want to miss out on kittens, right?)
