Delina says: I wasn't really a cat person; my father would never let us have one we I was growing up. But when I wanted to get a pet, my landlady would allow cats but not dogs. So I picked out a cat that was "on sale" for half price at Heartland Humane Society in Oregon. It seems that they had a glut of all-black or black-and-white cats. I grew to like my cat, Montana, very much. So I started going back to photograph other cats. I used to just do it entirely on my own, but the employees saw me there so often that they thought I worked there. Ha ha! I don't work there, but after years of taking pictures there, I volunteered that they could use them on their Web site, for free. I am poor, as far as money, but that was a way I could donate to them without a lot of money. I enjoy making people mindful of all the beautiful animals out there in the world available for adoption.

This particular litter I called the Orange Blossom Special Kitten Litter. The shelter workers called them Gamboge, Umber, Coral, and Tangelo. There were actually five in the litter, but Russet, a little girl, got adopted while I was getting ready to take the photos. Gamboge, Umber, Coral, and Tangelo all got adopted too.

A great donation, Delina! I am sure these photos helped get these babies adopted.

"The Orange Blossom Special"
I think I can hear the deep dark sounds of the late Mr. Cash singing here.
But this batch of pictures is just fantastic. Each of these babies is so full of that special age for kitties. The age of wonderment.
I could not pick one little creamsicle here over another. Guess I must take them all!
