Alaska's KAAATs CAT-alog!
Alaska Kitty Advocacy Awareness Adoption and Tails!!
Alaska's KAAATs, InsPURRirational, EduCATional CAT AdvoCATes!
Our mission is to AdvoCATe, EduCATe, promote awareness, and adoptions for the cats of the Alaskan community with a focus on special needs and the people who care about them.
Capturing PURRfect moments of purrecious fur angels is a magical part of my life. When each one allows me to look into their eyes, deep into their souls, and allows me to share them through photos, it is uniquely special. Working with various animal welfare organizations provides me various environments to work with these animals. My primary focus is on cats, although I do work with dogs too. The cats for whom I advoCATe are either in rescue or rehoused in shelters. The cats are looking for homes, are in a purrever foster situation or are part of an end-of-life PAWspice program.
Why cats? Throughout my 20+ years in animal welfare, I saw the unique need to bring additional awareness about the beauty of our feline friends. Cats are uniquely special creatures who need strong advoCATes, to help further eduCATe and to help others see how special they are. I started Alaska’s KAAATs as one small way to help advoCATe. What I didn’t anticipate was the positive impact it would have in the cat community. As time went on, our page began to grow worldwide and was recognized for the exceptionally beautiful cats and uniquely written and individualized backgrounds for each purrecious cat. We moved forward to become a registered non-profit cat advocacy organization so we could continue our efforts to advoCATe for the cats of our Alaskan community, the people, and our feline friends around the world.
I feel so blessed to have these opportunities to work with purrecious animals, as they give so much of their hearts. Earning their trust and rebuilding their faith in people is the main focus of our interactions. I am proud to be one of many who is their voice. I am also very grateful for the supportive folks who understand and share my passion. You are greatly appreciated!
PAWever Loved: Our Fur Friends Final Chapters
In honor of all the loving fur angels we have lost, I am adding to my photography business Paw-Prints Howls and Purrs! sessions for seniors and/or end of life sessions for pets who are getting ready to cross over the Rainbow Bridge.
Death can be such an uncomfortable topic for many people. I think it's important to see it, this last stage, and demystify it, make it less scary and sad while honoring the ones we love.
My hope is this will help many to heal and honor the ones they love dearly.
