Pet of the Week! Mocha!

Whoa, has it been a long time!  It's truly amazing how fast summer goes around here, especially this year with it's brilliant, perfect weather.  I've been working on a personal project over the last couple of months which will be ready to be announced shortly.  In the meantime, I'm back at the Seattle Animal Shelter weekly doing shoots of adoptable pets for the Seattle Channel's CityStream Pet of the Week segment!  Yay!

The first critter to be the Pet of the Week after our summer hiatus is Mocha!  Mocha is an adult male Guinea Pig and he is a TOTAL SWEETHEART.  Look at those beautiful pink eyes!  I was told that those eyes are a part of the reason he's been waiting longer than he should for a forever home.  People just think they're weird.  I think they are lovely and they accent his gentle and sweet personality.  He seems to be accustomed to being handled and the folks at the shelter say he's pretty steady and unfazed by most things.  He's been to a few adoption events and wasn't visibly worried about all of the action and other animals.  He seems to genuinely appreciate affection and will be ready to return it to his lucky adopter.  He would very much like to have a lady friend in the future, as he gets lonely by himself.  Stop down at the shelter and see if he might be a good fit for your family!
