I took photos of some Toronto Animal Services South cats on Sunday so for a change of pace, you get cats this week.
I have to admit I know very little about cats other than I'm kind of allergic to most of them and extremely allergic to some of them. Luckily, except for an itchy nose, I didn't react too badly to any of the ones I picked out to photograph. And they didn't react too badly to me either as I handled them with inexpert hands.
A couple of them did scramble up my arms a bit - I guess they were feeling my hold on them was a bit too precarious - and they latched onto my shoulders and chest for more security. Later, I see little red marks on my torso and I think to myself, "Umm, didn't I already have chicken pox in my childhood?" and then remember those sharp little claws.
No worries. The cats were all friendly and terribly cute and cuteness makes up for almost anything.
Here's a kitten of which I know neither the breed nor the name so I guess if you're interested in this little one, you'll have to call TAS and get them to look at these photos and they can identify the kitten that way. He (she?) is one of three and in a cage with his/her mom.
For adoption information on this cat and other cats (and dogs and other animals), please visit Toronto Animal Services.
