So yesterday I had the awesome opportunity to go and visit an exotic feline rescue center with another photographer, friend of mine... who is much more experienced than I... It was absolutely amazing :heart: to see all these beautiful animals!! My initial thought when walking into this place, seeing these big, beautiful kittys in cages... was ... But as we walked through the grounds, it was explained to us, what these wonderful people do for these babies. If they hear or find felines in desperates sistuations, such as not being taking care of medically, not being fed by owners and any other situations that require attention etc, they seek out help to get these animals taken out of the care of those that don't take care.... and nurse them back to health. And don't think it's like they are in tiny little cages now... They have quite a decent amount of running space. They are separated, but I think they said the property is a total of 80 acres... and they house 201 felines at the moment. Of course, it's not like being out in the wild, but it's also not being in an itty-bitty 10x10 cage, with cement floor.. no grass, no sunlight, and no interaction... They do a lot for these precious creatures.... They dedicate their lives to taking care of them... Every single day, of the week....all day. Every kitty has there own story. and most of them are sad... Their goal is to provide top knotch medical care, for those that are in dire need. One cat, named Sampson, who's previous owner bought him from someone in a Steak-n-Shake parking lot for only $300, has cataracts and is blind. They are trying to raise money for his surgery that will cost $6K. They've raised $2K this far, but are still a great ways away from their goal. They do sooo much for these felines... it's truely wonderful :heart: If you'd like to help: www.exoticfelinerescuecenter.org This post wasn't intended to open your wallet BTW.... lol... Being an amateur still, I wanted some opinions on the photos that I was able to take... oh and maybe keep in mind, that there was a fence in between us, obviously... lol... so the shots seemed limited, I thought anway... Oh and another fun fact - Can you believe they put out three thousand pounds of meat... A DAY!! The lady that walked around with us and told us about where they come from and how they got here, she was dressed in cartharts (bc it twas freakin freezin mane!), and they were covered in blood pretty much all over... yummy.. i know Anyway... please... tell me your honest opinion!! i think i like 3 & 5 the best.
