Foster, King of the Kitty Cottage 2017

KingoftheKittyCottage2017 w400

Royalty comes in all shapes, sizes ... and species! Fiesta 2017 marked the San Antonio Humane Society's inaugural feline photo contest, Purr-fectly Fiesta, in which the city's most festive felines squared off online to be crowned King/Queen of the Kitty Cottage.

Foster, the three-year-old, medium-haired smoky feline, came from humble beginnings. An unexpected addition to his current family, Foster was first discovered in 2014 as a homeless country kitten in need of shelter. Natalie King invited Foster into her home as a temporary foster, but it took less than 24 hours for Foster to turn from short-term resident into permanent family member. He is named in honor of his mom's "failure" as a foster mom, and enjoys spending his days cuddling and playing with his sister, Penny, a one-year-old Shepherd mix.

Appreciations to Renee Spade Photography for donating her services and providing a wonderful portrait for his royal whiskered highness.

Lucius, King of the Kitty Cottage 2018

Royalty comes in all shapes, sizes… and species! Fiesta 2018 marked the San Antonio Humane Society’s second annual feline photo contest, Purr-fectly Fiesta, in which the city’s most festive felines squared off online to be crowned King/Queen of the Kitty Cottage.

Lucius was discovered by his mom, Stephanie, on the San Antonio Humane Society Facebook page and she adopted him that same day. He was her first special needs cat. His vision was poor due to multiple birth defects and several consultations with multiple veterinarians suggested his quality of life would be poor. But Stephanie was determined to never give up on Lucius: he was happy, he wanted to live, and he never acted as though he was different than any other cat. Lucius celebrated his eighth birthday in July of 2018. His mom describes him as the most affectionate, loyal, and active cat of her life, and admits he has taught her many things: “Special needs animal do not consider themselves handicapped… they adapt to life with what they have, not what they lack.” Lucius and his mom now spend their days sharing his life online @LifeWithLucius in the hopes that more special needs animals may be given more chances, more second glances, and more consideration for adoption.
