Teacup Himmy in Rescue
Zoey, a Himalayan from Burlington, Wisconsin, was owner-surrendered into cat rescue because they "no longer had time for her," reports contributor SPCR. "This darling petite Himalayan, barely five pounds full-grown, was a champion show kitten. We took her in at Specialty Purebred Cat Rescue. I'd bought this fun giant teacup planter for flowers -- just thought it would be a perfect springtime photo with the little teacup 'Zoey' before planting my flowers!"
