As a child, Robin Wiesneth adopted many strays that came her way.

"There were many dogs and cats, always strays, that wandered into our lives," she recalls.

As an adult she says she has owned "only" five rescue pets and they have all been cats. But the low number is mostly due to the fact that she and her husband travel so much. Tucker is their current cat and he has lived with them since he was a kitten. He will be four this fall.

Although Wiesneth doesn't feel she is currently in a position to offer a home to more strays because of her travels, she tries to help in other ways ... such as donating pieces of artwork to fundraising events to help raise money to help animals.

"I have a huge appreciation for animals at the shelter," she said.

Wiesneth has been painting for five years with acrylic paints. Most of her subject matter are animals, with some abstracts thrown in for good measure.

When Wiesneth paints animals she paints them as if they were enjoying fun adventures, such as riding in rocket ships, or driving automobiles with the wind blowing through their fur.
