Cute Game, Hard to Capture
The cat photography makes the game amazing and while its adorable, photographer Gerrard Gethings said cats being cats made the photoshoots difficult. With the lights and camera ready, he and the cat parents would do everything in their power, which included laser points, treats, and sweet talk, but some cats just wanted no part and hid. As he told the Guardian, he’d leave the cat’s house “feeling quite defeated and a huge failure”.
In other instances, he’d find his hopes dashed by wily cat tactics. “The cats would jump up and sit on the table beautifully, lick their paws and just watch what was happening as I set up the backdrop”. As soon as Gethings would lift the camera though, “they’d jump off and hide and never come back. It seemed almost deliberate.”
Gethings is also the genius behind Do You Look Like Your Dog? and he reported the dogs were much easier to photograph as they happily reported to his studio. On Instagram, he said, “We had to be a wee bit more inventive with the cats than the dogs.”
But he felt the cats were worth the work and deserved the same attention as dogs.
“Everyone’s seen someone who looks like a dog. It’s been an idea forever,” he shared. “But I don’t think people have thought, ‘That person looks a lot like a cat.’ I suppose there’s a feline quality some people can have, but not in the same way. They don’t have huge beards, or things dogs have, like a centre parting and long hair – easy matches. Cats are more difficult.”
Yes, cats can be difficult but that’s some of the magic that makes them so great!
Pick up Do You Look Like Your Cat? and have some fun with the family.
