COVER PHOTOGRAPHER: Ingrid Nevinger of 9 Lives Photography is a Chicago-based photographer specializing in on-location pet portraits. As a HeARTsSpeak member, she donates her photography and musical services to local animal rescues, including Red Door Animal Shelter. Ingrid often falls in love with her four-legged subjects; she’d love to adopt cover model Marley, but already has a full house with three rescue cats of her own— Stella, Sadie, and Milkshake.
ABOUT THE COVER KITTEN: Marley and her brother Jacob arrived in a battered cardboard box at Chicago’s Red Door Animal Shelter right before Christmas. Cold, scared, and a little underweight, their sunny personalities began to shine after some much needed food and warmth. The two are waiting in one of Red Door’s free-roam cat rooms for a forever home. To find more adoptable cats, dogs, and rabbits visit: RedDoorShelter.org.
