Irina says: I am a professional photographer, I live not far from Moscow. Animals live in our family since childhood. Lived 13 years with our cat, whom we found a newborn and nursed. For 17 years my mother had a dog which was also once took to the streets. So this is a good tradition to rescue animals. ;)

The first were two cute little kitten. I, as a photographer, could not pass on, showed them pictures in blog, and they quickly found the owners. Then we saw two homeless kittens, bright red, they were perfectly healthy, and after a visit to the vet they too had gone to their new homes.

The following summer, while walking in the evening with a dog, I saw children who were seeing a kitten in a grass hut. The kitten was very exhausted when I took it. Veterinarian did not give assurances that it will survive. But she really wanted to live and quickly recovered. Our Sphinx always been friends with another of our cat and our dog, collie, and they all took to baby without any problems. :) Eventually we have found owners for her too. Her name is now Bree, she lives in Moscow.

This is not my merit, I'm just a photographer and try not to pass someone else's misfortune. Thank you to those people who have taken up the families of these kittens.

Charmed to bits. @ Irina, you are a soul catcher in your work. I checked all the sites and loved the portraits of people and animals. Very, very good work, insightful and delicate.

You can see how tiny Bree is in this photo, next to your collie. This is a wonderful photo. I am so happy that you found a loving home for this adorable little long haired, ginger beauty, Thanks for sharing.

There is something always so hysterical about kittens doing the "arched back and stand-up fur." <3

It was SO hard to pick a favourite! I love the shot of her in someone's hand - just gorgeous. And the photos of her with your other cat - so different and yet you can see they like each other! Love the shots with the dog too. Bree is adorable.
