Cat Photography – The Truth Behind the Cute
Almost on par with cat herding, cat photography is a tricky business. Mostly because cats are a tricky business. Really — this is what our subjects do:
- Sit on a sheet of paper when 400 square feet of bare floor is available.
- Sleep in a shoebox instead of any one of their 5 cat beds
- Drink water a drop at a time with their paws
- Immediately push their toys under the refrigerator
So this is the psychology we’re working with and we’re expected to take good photos? Honestly, babies may be easier to photograph. At least they don’t run at the camera in full-on attack mode.

For every good photo there are about 50 not-so-good ones. And of those 50 at least one is so awful it’s kind of funny. So without further ado, here are some photos of our very own JujuKitty for your enjoyment.
