This has been the sixth year I have had the pleasure of photographing and designing the calendar for Cats Protection Wellington. This small organisation cares and helps cats to find their forever homes. These cats have been desexed and vet checked before leaving the shelter.
Volunteering at Cats Protection Wellington (CPW) is a lovely and rewarding experience. You not only get to help the cats in need but also get to meet people with a common interest at heart. Besides helping the cats, you get to meet really nice people – so please consider spending your corporate volunteer day at CPW.
If you are looking for a furry companion now, please visit CPW’s website to give you an idea of all the lovely furry boys and girls the shelter has for adoption right now. But, if this is not the right time for you to adopt a cat, perhaps you could consider sponsoring one. CPW has a sponsor program for some of its high needs cats that are difficult to home due to medical or behavioural problems.
As with the past few years, all these images were taken at CPW’s shelter in Kingston. The text on each image page was provided by Richard, Rachel, Delwyn and Iona, and the photographs couldn’t have been taken without the help of Bex, Reece and Lorraine, who spent lots of time with me and the cats so I could get just the right pic. Thanks to them, and of course thanks to all the cats who were magnificent models for the calendar! This year the calendar features the happy stories of two absolutely gorgeous past residents of the shelter, TP and Smudge.
Enjoy the images, but best order a calendar online – they make a great Christmas present for any cat lover.
Here are links to the past Cats Protection Wellington calendars I contributed to, for 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. Back then CPW was known as the Wellington Cats Protection League. Also, feel free to check out my pet photography folio.
