This shoot was full of laughs and upon learning that our furry companion for the day was a Tortie named Blanche, we couldn’t help but sing the Golden Girls theme song as we chatted about our favorite TV shows growing up. Our model, Shae was as gorgeous as ever and I was inspired to pair fun, pinky metallics with her rich, chocolate skin. The combination proved to be stunning. We were so grateful for Penny Moore who allowed us to shoot in her studio in Burbank, a central location for everyone on the team. (Check her out if you are in need of great, affordable headshots - www.plmphotography.net) We were so excited to pair up with a very special cat rescue, Heaven on Earth Society for Animals who has made it their mission to transform the lives of homeless cats, many of whom have special needs with no place else to go. Their sanctuary, a cage-free, no-kill facility known as Perry’s Place, is home to up to 180 cats - many awaiting adoption, others living temporarily in their clinical room, and still more whose special needs, chronic health issues or age make it likely that their sanctuary will be their forever home. Please check out their website, heavenlypets.org for more information if you are interested in adopting, donating, or volunteering at this wonderful rescue.
We couldn’t have gotten a more special lady to shoot with than this gorgeous, friendly little 2 1/2 year old Tortie named Blanche. One look into those big green eyes and we were sold. She was such a sweetheart and she loved being carried around like a little baby by our volunteer, Jessica. She was a tad shy at first but as soon as you started petting her, she began to purr and rolled over for a nice, long belly rub. She was so affectionate and had the most calm demeanor. She also has the most adorable tiny meow. How this little lady hasn’t been adopted yet is a total mystery. She will make the perfect companion for a very lucky human. Blanche is spayed and currently up to date on all of her vaccines. It is important to not forget about the older cats who often get overlooked especially as we head into kitten season. At her young age, you still get the benefit of having a playful, healthy cat but you don’t have to go through the demanding and time-consuming stage of raising a kitten. You also know her exact temperament and personality unlike when you adopt a kitten and have no idea what type of cat they will grow into.
Several Petsmarts in the San Fernando Valley house some of Heaven on Earth’s kitties to give them some extra exposure in hopes of finding them their forever homes. Blanche happens to be one of these cats that currently lives at the Encino location. If you are interested in adopting Blanche, you can visit her at their adoption event held every Sunday from 12-3pm at the Petsmart in the Encino Commons or you can contact Heaven on Earth directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
