Troy says: I'm a freelance photographer and I help out at Best Friends Animal Society in Utah by photographing homeless pets. This little guy, Honey Bear, was so fun to photograph. He was adopted just a few days after arriving here, so it was bittersweet for me. I was very glad that he found a good home, but I was bummed that I couldn't continue with an entire series of Honey Bear. He was/is special.

who is Jello and what's with that weird comment? You know, I love all of my cats and they are all extremely beautiful and wonderful, but if I had a kitten this cute, I'd never leave my house!

Honey Bear is the perfect name for such a huggable, lovable little furbaby. Wonderful that he found his furever home so quickly.

What a sweet little guy! Great photos Troy. Best Friends Animal Society must be a lovely organization with lots of generous friends and volunteers.

What a perfect little kitten. Obviously he looks so bewildered because he's like, "why am I not getting pettings this very instant?"

Jello is you think this kitten is horrifying you need new glasses and a heart! BEST FRIENDS ANIMAL SOCIETY is the best ever rescue in the world! I volunteered there for a week and did not want to leave! It is a wonderful place that does miraculous work and if I could I would move there and stay forever it is that special! There is nothing they can't do and they are a gift from God to the animals!

Troy - I am GREEN WITH ENVY!! I visited Best Friends a few years ago (haven't had the money to go back yet) and I cried the day I had to leave! LOVE THAT PLACE! Their operation is just MIND-BOGGLING! I was there shortly after they brought home HUNDREDS of dogs from overseas to save them!

Sorry, I can't say enough about Best Friends! LOVE THEM!

Cute, cute photos! Can't wait to see your Flickr photos and others. After the disaster in Japan, hopefully the animals over there will be taken care of also...

Wonderful posed photos. Such a precious cattie and those pale green eyes are to die for! The mouse is almost as large as "Honey bear"! Thanks for sharing.

Jello, there is nothing "horrifying" about this sweet, innocent, wide-eyed kitten, only about your comment. And Troy, thank you so much for the work you do for Best Friends. They are the best organization of their kind. You are so fortunate to be able to work with the dedicated staff and the fantastic volunteers who care for these animals in need. My dream is to one day visit and see for myself the fantastic job they do every day. Thank you for sharing your photos of this little "Honey" of a kitten.

Jello darling - Flat Rat and I think you need a dog.

To be charitable, I am thinking Jello is challenged by the language and just doesn't know the right form of the word. I think the kitten looks startled and maybe "horrified".

What big eyes you have Honey Bear. I agree with the startled view! Very fluffy and a bit "ooh, what's going on" look!
