My BEAUTIFUL black cat Velcro is a big part of my life.
I adopted her almost 4 years ago from the SF SPCA, which brings a smile to my face anytime I hear they are organising or hosting an event. I hope the upcoming adopt-athon this weekend goes great.
Here is their latest video. Bonus kitteh points if you know where the video was shot.
If you did watch the complete video above, the Portlandia-spoof features the gorgeous Cammy. She is a hamm:
Since Cammy is not shy at all, my friend Richie also snapped while we were on the back of the truck drinking coffee (not sure the truck is still there) but this kitteh is an absolute rockstar, roaming the greatest garden in the city:

The location where the video was shot is Flora Grubb Gardens, located in the Hunter’s Point/Bay View district here in San Francisco.
Coffee and plants, great place to spend time with friends or alone.
I love this spot, and have gone there many times throughout the years with family and many of my good friends, highly recommend it if you have not yet been. There are many previous posts here.
Ample vehicle+bicycle parking as well as the t-line about a block away (3rd street).
How a quick simple 10-second radio announcement inspired this post, is a rather linear sentiment on how making a decision to adopt a pet changes your life. Animals are keen to know when you are feeling like shit or in pain asides many positive perspectives added to one’s daily routine.
Loyal loving companions.
Having Velcro around has been a very loving experience, I am very happy I decided to adopt her.
I am an even bigger animal lover than I could ever imagine.
/Velcro. 1st one taken with phone, last 2 with the LX5.
Do you have pets? Have you been to your local shelter lately?
I love my cat. I’m sure she loves me too.
