Harley the Cat Wants a New Home

Hi Everyone,

Over on ScrapBook Flair a challenge has been started up by Oreosmeow  to bring a delightful cat called Harley as much attention as we can, to help him find a new home.

At the moment Harley is being fostered in Woodbridge, NJ at an Angel PAWS volunteer's home.

Some information from Scraps at Oreosmeow, furnished by Harley's foster carer.

"Harley was found outside, hungry and unable to walk on one of his rear legs. A rescuer was able to trap him and get him to the vet. It was found that he had an infected abscess on his paw as well as some already healing wounds on his body. He was given an antibiotic and the abscess is healing. He had it very rough outside since he had no idea how to survive.

He loves pets and belly rubs and will let you know when he wants more. He's about 2 or 3 years old and tested negative for FIV and FeLV. He has been neutered and is up to date with routine shots. He does have a hematoma on his left ear so it flaps over giving him even more character. It does not cause him any pain or discomfort."

The problem is that Harley prefers his own company to that of other felines, and doesn't get on with his foster mum's own cats. As a result, he has to be kept separate, and is in great need of a loving family home of his own, where he is the sole cat.

If you live in the Woodbridge, NJ area and would like to take on this lovely little character, or perhaps know someone who might be interested, please do get in touch with Oreosmeow, Angel Paws, or Harley's foster mum.

Harley reminds me very much of our own Pyewacket (and he would love to be an only cat as well. ), and I am sure that like most cats he can bring much joy, love and companionship to any relationship.

I had a little fun last night putting together some pages for the challenge. Personally I don't think they are anywhere near as good as some that have already been posted, but they are my little contribution to the cause.

The kit I used for various elements was the one recently put together as a collaborative charity kit for Angel Paws, called "Second Chance", found at Angel Baby Scraps. There is so much to choose from in this kit, and it's not just animal themed. You'll find something to use no matter what your style, and at $3 (cost me all of £1.93) an absolute snip!

Couldn't resist having another play with the Word Art Frames, adding different effects to ring the changes.

Playing around in the Craft Artist effects section I came up with the effect on the red page, which I have saved as my "Harley Red" effect. The little cat edging to the page is from a Photoshop brush by B Sylvia of Graphics-Illustrations.

Used Truly Tango Scraps DSA/Craft Artist Effect "Copper Frost" on the final page.

I do hope Harley soon finds a new home and a family who will love and look after him for the rest of his days.
