On the upside, I did a holiday photo-shoot for the first time in over a year. It ended up being a pretty small shoot, for the best reason - I had to stop and help with an adoption in the middle! It was a great adoption, and in the end I still got some hilarious photos for St Patrick's Day.
This undoubtedly being one of the best. Look at his face!
This is Charles, and he's actually the best-natured rabbit in the world. He is a dwarf mix, however, and he has inherited the squished-in face of many dwarf rabbits. Thanks to that, he is spectacularly good at disapproving faces. And he is judging you for your St Patrick's Day activities.
When I did the hamster photos, my camera decided it no longer liked the green background, so the colours turned out a little day-glo. The shelter recently took in 11 hamsters who were abandoned in a local park. Galileo here is probably the shyest, but he was not shy about taking the peanut I hid in the shot glass.
Petunia here is a recent transfer from Scarborough, who makes hilarious faces in almost all of her photos, holiday-themed or not. I enjoy the hangover-ish look here. I think she might be the one Charles was judging in that first photo.
Petunia can be a little skittish, but once you start petting her, she falls right asleep...even on a pile of plastic shamrocks.
