Happy Caturday! Collectively photographers are a terrific group and are very generous with their time and talents. Of course, I’m biased towards the ones who photograph shelter pets to help the pets adopted. I especially love the stories of a photographer who brings one home, as Chantal Levesque did. Cat photography can be tricky, but Chantal and her cat Shirow have it down to an art!
From Chantal: “Meet Shirow the cat. He is a rescue from the Montreal SPCA. He is now 10 months old. I am a Montreal-based photographer, and I donate my time to photograph pets up for adoption and events for the shelter. I could not help myself and had to bring this little guy home. He was just 5 months old and had been born in a schoolyard.
He was not used to human presence; he was very scared and nervous, but we took him home, gave him lots of love, and now he is the king of the castle!”
Shirow seems to have a great sense of humor! I am pretty sure he is laughing.
