I volunteer to take photos of the cats and kittens at the Animal Rescue of New Orleans (ARNO). It is extremely rewarding work and I enjoy it a lot.

Although the one with the most seniority, La Luna did not lead this gang of fur and preferred to just rest, relax and enjoy the sun.
Rosco was the cute little gray cat that was not really a stray as he was owned by one of the apartment dwellers. He was an inside/outside cat and enjoyed hanging out with the gang and eating the many meals that were left outside for...
