Welcome to my world

  • Welcome

    Welcome to my new blog, I decided that I would change to wordpress.com. Posts dated before March 27, 2008 are imported from my old blogger site. I was looking for a blog that is easily navigated around, and simple to update, I love the layout I can have here, with 2 side bars and tabs at the top for different subjects. I currently have an about me tab and a photography tab, Ill be looking to add recipes, and craft ideas shortly, so check back in to see what’s new regularly!

RIP Romeo.

Posted by MWPA on February 16, 2009

romeo-001Romeo was one of the cats at the shelter where I volunteer at, He was diagnosed with Kidney failure last week, unfortunately he was unresponsive to his meds so today was taken to be put to sleep.
He was a great cat with a unique personality he had a few missing teeth so his tongue often hung out of his mouth which made him look even cuter. He was a semi permanent resident at our no kill shelter, as people dont like adopting older cats…
so RIP Romeo.

A couple of goals for the next few months

Posted by MWPA on January 21, 2009

Number one is obviously to improve and learn to use my current photography equipment to the max.

I have two projects that I would like to work on, I am aiming to get 24 landscape and 24 portrait shots of the cats at the cat shelter, I then want to create a calender with a selection of these pictures, as well as greeting cards. I also want to create some valentine stock style pictures that I can maybe turn into greeting cards too, none of this is to make me money, really just to inspire me to take more pictures and learn more, and maybe let someone benefit from the pictures I take, if the cat ones come out ok then I will donate the calenders to the shelter for them to sell.

I think I want to design some business cards too, that way if I am out and about with my camera I and am asked about what I am doing, I can hand them a card and say visit my zenfolio site for information.

Here is a cat picture of Zoe, who decided to make a bed with my walmart bag that is usually used for carrying camera accessories into the cat corner, Zoe was brought to the Cat Corner after her owner had to go to an assisted living home.

Whats New?

Posted by MWPA on September 22, 2008

Well….

I was MVP of the month at work (most valuable person), I am thinking I was awarded it because I was the only person in my department who didn’t cal out sick…or have a car that broke!

So far I am still enjoying working at Best Buy, and I am looking forward to the crazy holiday shopping period, I am expecting to work lots of hours and get little time off. We have Black Friday, which is the craziest shopping day of the year due to it being a sale day, all the shops open early and sell almost everything at a sale price. lines start forming very very early in the morning for all the stores! that day is certainly going to be busy!

The Cat Corner has been busy with Kitten season all through the summer, and we have lots of kittens that need to find new homes, they are all lovely, but I would never adopt a kitten, as they are way to crazy and demanding. Mellow who is two years old is still extremely demanding-waking us up at 5 in the morning and if we shut him out of the bedroom he cry’s for at least 30 minutes demanding to be let back in the bedroom. I don’t mind him being in the bedroom or on the bed, but I object to him using his feet and claws to poke me to wake me up just so I can give him attention!

I am trying to train Mellow not to jump on my computer desk, which he does every time i get on my computer, he does it because he knows he will get attention, so now when he jumps up I put him on my lap and rub his head, he isn’t really a lap cat so he doesn’t really like being on me but he purrs and will stay off my desk if I have him on my lap. It is the only time he will tolerate being on a lap for a long period of time.

I have three days off this week which is nice, today, Wednesday and Saturday, Wednesday I am probably going to the movies with Elizabeth-a girl I work with, and today I am cleaning. Saturday I have The Cat Corner in the morning and then I get to relax before going to work on Sunday. As Christmas gets closer and my hours at work get longer I am cutting down my Cat Corner volunteering, I wil only be doing every other week, so I am able to get some rest.

I WANT TO ADD THAT THIS SONG, IS GREAT, AND MAKES ME WANT TO CRY EVERYTIME IHEAR IT…  CLICK HERE

Sad News

Posted by MWPA on April 17, 2008

Sunshine ame to the shelter with her sister Daisy, after their elderly owner became sick and fell into a coma (unlikely to recover) no one really knows how long they were left alone, but we assume they may have been forgotten about for some time as both cats were underweight and sad looking. They were 6 years old and extremely friendly.

Unfortunately sunshine kept loosing weight and refused to eat, force feeding was even unsuccessful and she lost weight really fast, a trip to the vet two weeks after arrive at the shelter revealed she had was dying most likely from cancer and her body was shutting down. she was so light weight when curled up on my lap it was hard to feel that she was there. Sunshine was put to sleep last Tuesday.

This is a picture of Sunshine curled up on my lap.
