We went shopping for jeans…and came home with a cat

1048618_194731284030161_32083344_oWrigley has been a part of our family for six years.  It was the month of May and my four year old, Sara, was in a growth spurt.  So, on a warm Sunday afternoon we headed to the mall to do some shopping.  As we were walking, we passed by the Quad City Animal Shelter, which at the time, had a little storefront.

Of course we stopped in to look at the cats and dogs.  Sara sat down and Wrigley skipped over to her and settled himself on her lap.

That was all it took.  We had a cat.  I filled out the paperwork, wrote a check…and then called my husband to tell me that not only were we coming home with clothes; but also a cat.

I am so excited about giving back to the shelter that brought Wrigley into our lives.  From June 23rd to June 29th, the $25 session fee will be donated to the Quad City Animal Welfare Center.  We will also be donating 10% of the sales to the shelter.

What a perfect way to immortalize your family pet.  Don’t have a pet but still want to help? Give me a call and schedule a portrait session and I will still make the donation to the center.
