Dedicated to my dear friend Philippe
for his BIRTHDAY on July 23rd!
Philippe has been a great friend to me for a very long time here on dA!
He has been supportive of me and all my work in general, but also supportive in every way possible with regard to my work with animals.
My cat Philippe, was named after Philippe, because he was technically the first person [both on and off dA], to make purchases on behalf of The Shelter Project
My cat Philippe was in the county animal shelter where I previously was volunteering in California, before I moved to where I am now in Oregon and volunteering at a donation-only funded, private humane society.
My cat Philippe was never once looked at, not even out of interest for the full 7 months he had spent there, so I adopted him just before Halloween, [coming up on two years ago]- reason for that time, being, that it's sadly common enough in that area, to adopt black cats at Halloween time, "just because" or to be harmful to them.
Philippe is the most affectionate and wonderful cat!
He'll be 3 in November.
A feature of Philippe's [my friend, Philippe!] fabulous work:Dear Philippe,
I appreciate your kind friendship,
and I wish you the very best for your birthday,
and in the coming year with all of your efforts!
Your Friend, Tea
