I’m so excited to have started on this journey of making videos of animals that need to be adopted. Lila is the second video that I’ve done so far and she is such a sweetheart. A beautiful two year old Tortoise shell cat, she has the most captivating little eyes that look right into your soul as if to ask “will you adopt me?”. I really wish I could take them all home.

I wasn’t sure how I was going to film this special girl, at first she stayed in the back of her kitty enclosure a little shy but definitely curious as to what I was doing with the contraption (my camera), I was holding.

I decided the best approach would be to grab one of her toys and play with her. Sure enough she warmed up to me pretty quickly and I was able to capture her in her element. My experience with Lila showed me that, even the shyest of animals, have the potential to be wonderful, playful, fun pets if you just give take the chance to get to know them. Just like people, what you see isn’t always what you get.

Working with these shelter babies definitely makes me want to hug all of my fur babies a little tighter when I see them. Too many animals need homes and I’m going to continue to do all I can to help them find homes. I hope you enjoy the video of Lila I made.
