Zoe is a 7 week old lover. She was born outside in the bitter cold of early March in Chicago to a feral mom. The kittens were left outside with the mom for the first 3 weeks and watched closely. When it became clear that the cold was a bit too much and they might not make it Zoe and her 4 siblings were brought to Homes for Endangered and Lost Pets [H.E.L.P.]. Mom could not be caught so these little guys were bottle fed for the first couple of weeks of domestic life.
We decided to document their journey from bottle fed baby to full kittenhood by taking photos every week to watch them grow. The photos will be used to help local rescue folks age very young kittens. For me this has been a special project. I love getting to know these little guys. And they now know me! As soon as I sit on the floor to shoot, a couple of them run into my lap and purr. Doesn't get much better than that.
This weeks theme for the 52 HeARTs challenge is celebrate. Zoe is all dressed up to celebrate! She and her siblings are 7 weeks old and best of all 4 weeks with her foster mom. Happy birthday little guys!
