I recently photographed a litter of rescue kittens to help them get adopted. A cute photo of a kitten will go a long way in helping it find its forever home. This trio was born into rescue but their mom didn't have it so great. She was on the street, pregnant and getting harassed by local dogs in a Fort Worth neighborhood. A Good Samaritan came to her rescue, captured her and brought to a Veterinarian who connected her with Coppell Humane Society.
In trying to think of a title for this post, I kept thinking about the fable of The Three Little Pigs. Almost. Three little somethings sounded so familiar, but it wasn't pigs. I finally gave up and went to the Wizard, Google, and typed in "Three Little Kittens". Of course! The Mother Goose nursery rhyme!
The three little kittens, they lost their mittens, And they began to cry, "Oh, mother dear, we sadly fear, That we have lost our mittens." "What! Lost your mittens, you naughty kittens! Then you shall have no pie." "Meow, meow, meow." "Then you shall have no pie." The three little kittens, they found their mittens, And they began to cry, "Oh, mother dear, see here, see here, For we have found our mittens." "Put on your mittens, you silly kittens, And you shall have some pie." "Purr, purr, purr, Oh, let us have some pie." The three little kittens put on their mittens, And soon ate up the pie, "Oh, mother dear, we greatly fear, That we have soiled our mittens." "What, soiled your mittens, you naughty kittens!" Then they began to sigh, "Meow, meow, meow," Then they began to sigh. The three little kittens, they washed their mittens, And hung them out to dry, "Oh, mother dear, do you not hear, That we have washed our mittens?" "What, washed your mittens, then you're good kittens, But I smell a rat close by." "Meow, meow, meow, We smell a rat close by."
These little kittens haven't lost their mittens, but they are looking for a forever home. Lucky for them Coppell Humane Society provided a safe and warm environment for them to be born into and socialized with a loving foster family. Now that they've been weaned, spayed and neutered, it's time for these little birds to leave the nest. These little darlings will soon be ready to enter the open market for adoption. If you'd like to learn more about RJ, Judith and Daryl, visit the Coppell Humane Society website and submit and application to adopt.

Three Little Kittens Who Need a Forever Home
It's Photographer's Choice this week in the 52 Week Pet Photography Project so I thought I'd take the opportunity to give these cool cats some added exposure to kick off their adoption availability. Remember, visit the Coppell Humane Society website if you'd like to meet or adopt one of these kittens.
