Pleeeease...

(Above) Amber Williford, 15, (left) pleads with her mother Gana Royse of Lumberton (right) to get this particular kitten while Brooke Royse, 7, (center) continues looking at other kittens at the Humane Society of Southeast Texas animal shelter in Beaumont on Tuesday, August 2, 2005. The family plans to adopt two kittens.

(Right) Kittens wait for good homes at the shelter. The shelter has about 150 cats, including about 50 kittens ready to be adopted. The shelter is also in need of donations to repair the roof as well as a constant need of supplies and volunteers.

I know, easy target. We needed a quick feature, and I always want animals to find good homes. Maybe some moms will pick up a kitten or puppy after they drop off their tots for the first day of school.

The first image tells a great story.

You know, I actually never think of this for a quick feature. Thanks :-)

Andrew Batt said...

Good one Mark - we need one as well for next week so this idea will come in very useful. Great pictures too, as always!

Emil said...

Nice contrast on the cat picture--winsome, aren't we cute on the top and cat-from-hell on the bottom.

Ana said...

Heh. Emil beat me to it --the kitten at the bottom doesn't exactly have his/her "adopt me!" face on.

I guess this is where Texans differ. I believe they adopted the one on the bottom because it had "spirit." Y'all should meet Fayrouz. She's spirited too. ;-}

I've used this for a feature before too actually:


My attempt

People love their animals. :)
