PhotoHunt: Lick


This week's theme is "Lick."

The first PhotoHunt of 2010 - best wishes for a Happy New Year to everyone!

These fine fellows both live at the cat sanctuary where I volunteer (this sanctuary is home to 300 cats). You can't make a cat pose for a "lick" photo so I was lucky to get these right before this theme came up!

And I'd like to ask all my blog friends to support your local no-kill animal shelters. Even if you can't adopt a furry friend, please think about donating time or money. There are way too many homeless animals out there.



You can find more Photo Hunters and join the hunt here.

I totally love these photos! You were indeed lucky to get these two action shots. So cute!

I can spot a tuxedo cat in the corner of the first photo. Tux had white paws just like him/her. And I love the sweet face of the kitten in the corner (second photo).

The clinic where Polaris works does a lot of pro bono work for shelters. They also rescue, spay/neuter and place for adoption kittens that are abandoned at their door. Very sad to see them left in a cardboard box. :(

Wishing you, Maria and LuLu a fabulous 2010!

p.s. I haven't yet seen a cat in Paris. It seems very strange to me not to see a single cat in a city.


Not only is the second cat licking its lips but it also looks like it's winking... :D

Great post and priceless shots. Totally amazed at how you caught these wonderful shots for the theme. Happy New Year!

Cats don't even have to pose to be too cute for photos...These are great shots of adorable felines. Kudos to you too for helping our friends and reminding us to do the same. Happy New Year! m

this post really shows the theme. often ppl adopt a kitten coz it is cute but once it reproduces and they cant pass it over to somebody else, that is when the problem arises


So cute!

Great shots, Annie! They are so cute! A great post to start the New Year reminding us to be kind to our four-legged friends. I totally forgot about PH today, and I am about to go to yoga, so I think I'll be skipping it this week.

Happy New Year!

I must agree those are some great licking shots.. hehe. :P

Happy New Year 2010!


WOW, cute licks there...

Happy 2010!

Hi Annie, this is a wonderful and thoughtful post to start off the New Year and new decade. I love both photos and they are so perfect for this week's theme. You and the Sanctuary do such wonderful work giving a home to all the kittens and cats in NC until they are adopted. Thank you so much for the reminder to support our local shelters in 2010.

I have a strong feeling that Ronda (and hopefully Lola) will finally arrive in 2010 and I can't wait.

Have a great day today!

I don't think it's too hard to get a cat to lick it's face, but definitely nice clear takes on some pretty cats.

These are great. I have had difficulty capturing the tongue.


Aw, they are too cute for words!!!

Happy happy New Year, Annie!! Hope your year is filled with joy, good health, lots of purring from your furry friends, and lots more good stuff! :)

Very cute, Maria! Love the way the little black cat seems to be winking at the same time.


Wonderful photos, Annie! And Maria's right -- I also see the lower half of a tuxedo cat in the first photo. Beautiful!

The cats here all look really lovely, sleek and happy. You must be doing wonderful work with them!

Great shots! Our feline friends were great inspiration for this week's theme. LOL

Have a great New Year!

Fantastic photos! I love them both but the second one if my favorite. Perfect for the theme this week!

What sweeties. A happy New Year to you and yours!

Hi Annie,
I also wish you a happy new year! Any trips planned for this year? I wish you lots of joy and happiness!
Take care,


Great photos,Annie. Those cats are too cute, and good reminder to support shelters throughout the year.We have recently adopted 4 cats at work from our local shelter. They have brought so much happiness to our residents.We're looking forward to adopting a few more over the course of this year!


Happy New Year! :)

Hi Annie!

I love your licking photos - they are precious!

I wish we had a cat sanctuary here - I would love to volunteer there like you do.

Happy New Year, Annie!
