button up shirt - Fun and Board Games Top c/o Modcloth
jeans - H&M
boots - Palladium Boots
necklace - eBay

I made a new friend while shooting outfit photos. This majestic little beast waltzed out from a crack in the abandoned building I was shooting up against and trotted straight over to me, meowing up a storm. When I would start to ignore her she'd walk away but as soon as I showed her the slightest bit of attention she'd run right back over. She liked being talked to a lot but was a liiiittle bite-y when it came to being pet. If I took pictures today my outfit details would include "scratches on hand - c/o of feral cat" I'm going to have to say it was worth it though because I was tickled pink to meet such an otherwise friendly feral cat. I wish I could become buddies with every animal I meet this quickly.

Actually as soon as I realized how friendly and social the cat was I called up Mickey, who is pretty awesome at finding homes for animals, to come scoop this guy up. She was there in basically five minutes but immediately pointed out the cat's tipped ear, meaning she was part of the Trap-Neuter-Return Program. That didn't stop the cat from hopping in Mickey's car while the door was open though! Hah!

I've got my fingers crossed this fluffy little babe is there next time I go to shoot outfit photos there. I'll come bearing treats.

  2. Love your cute sweater! And the necklace is fab too :)

  3. what a cute encounter!

    the necklace is so adorable!

  4. That cat totally looks like it could be your familiar. Have you considered stealing him and dyeing his white patch to match whatever your hair color is at the moment?

    But seriously, I'm glad that neuter-and-return programs exist. I guess not all cats can be domesticated, and it's better than putting them in kill shelters because they can't be adopted. I hope he's getting enough to eat. What a cutie.

  5. That cat!! How majestic she looks! Much love :)

  6. WOW that kitty is SO cool! That last photo is amazing. She probably wanted to make friends with the hedgehog. Hehehe.

  8. That sweater is too cute, and so is the kitty! I once had a feral cat insist I carry him till I got home one night! And I did, just like a baby. lol Then he just went his own way.
    I hope she's there next time too, she's very beautiful. :3

  16. Two of my cats were originally TNR cats! They were scooped up, fixed, and then the shelter realized they were too friendly to go back to being street cats. If you think this is the case with this guy, maybe let some of your local TNR programs know about this beautiful boy! It sounds like he might really enjoy becoming a house cat.

  17. Love this look! Wish my cat (who looks very similar) was that friendly (and as photogenic).
