Shelter Cats

Martha Washington


There’s something about Martha’s quiet dignity that lends itself to formal portraiture…
unless there’s a mouse toy in the room.


Here’s three year old Martha Washington hanging out, in a more casual setting at PAWS. She’s adjusting to shelter life, but we hope she’ll take her proper role as First Lady Cat of someone’s home soon.

What a lovely girl she is! We’re purring she soon finds her forever home.

Thanks for stopping by our blog. There’s just a lot of stuff going on in our human’s life right now, and she doesn’t have the energy to keep up with posting and visiting, unfortunately. Maybe if things settle down again?

Purrs and peace.
