It’s stray animals day. You could help them too

Today is Stray Animals Day. It is estimated that there are 600 million stray animals in the world.

They are often hungry, suffer from extreme heat or cold and disease, and suffer from abuse. Stray Animals Day is a day to show compassion and take action.

We rescued this kitten from the streets in Tbilisi several years ago and she lives happily with us. We called her Bambi.

And this is how she looks now 🐱 and her current name is Minkey – she likes this name much more 😃

You can read more about Minkey in my another post My Family and Other Animals.

If you have some time you can look at my animal photography page where I uploaded photos of street cats and dogs.

You can also read my post Street Cat Show.

And one more post about very lovely ginger cat who eat our meal in McDonald’s 😃

I hope all other stray animals will find homes where they will be cared and loved.

First days of spring. A walk with my camera

A couple of days ago I went on a photo walk. I didn’t find too many blooming flowers, but it’s clear – season of flowers is just around the corner!

Here are more results of my photo-adventure:

At the end of day I had nice cup of cappuccino.

In one word, it was a very lovely day.

Enjoy your time too,

Shorena

Stunning Ginger Street Cat enjoyed our meal!

We met this ginger gentleman some time ago in a McDonald’s restaurant. He was sitting at the edge of the outdoor seating area like a colorful cat statue. 

When we sat down to eat, he suddenly appeared at our table and waited patiently until we offered to share our meal. He didn’t beg or make a fuss and politely declined to eat cheese and French fries. He accepted only burgers. 

I was so pleased he was not keen on my vegetarian meal. However, the meat eaters in my family ended up with smaller than normal Big Macs! 😄😄

However, everyone was happy, especially our Ginger Street Cat guest. 

Enjoy your time,

Shorena

Old Fences New Beauty

I always feel a bit sad when I walk past old fences that are broken, collapsed and re-painted repeatedly and weathered pale by sun, rain and time. I feel compelled to capture and preserve their dilapidated state and can’t stop photographing them.

Old fences remind me of old, adorable grandmas, who have been forgotten, or as my (not forgotten) grandma would say, ‘forgotten even by the death’. I don’t want they were forgotten by people – that’s why I photograph them. 

Have a look at my old fence textures and tell me – are they as beautiful as I think they are?

That’s all for today.

Have a lovely time,

Shorena

Love Letter and Tiny Signs

My dear,

This is my favorite time of the year. Do you know why? Because I can clearly imagine how wonderful it will be to meet you so soon. This expectation gives me strength to keep going and not lose my joy for life. I am so thankful I can see you every year. I look forward to the day we meet again. I know it will be extra special.

I can’t wait for the moment when I feel your warmth as the world around me dances with butterflies. You mean everything to me, especially now when I’m so sad and frozen.

I know we will meet in ten days and I’m so full of expectations! I wish you were already here.

Dear Spring! Come soon and kick out this nasty, windy, frozen February! 😕🙃😄

I found some early signs of spring yesterday, very, very tiny signs 💛
