34 Very Lickable Cat Photos To Hearten Your Home

34 Very Likeable Cat Photos to Hearten Your Home

Love your cats more than anything else in the world? Cherish those furry moments with cat photos, thinking beyond the blurry smartphone photo.

With a bit of effort and inspiration, you can turn those special candid moments into art photography or contrive some hilarious scenarios to capture for eternity.

Animal wall art will bring heart to your home and a smile to your face. These very likeable ideas – in the studio, during sleep and play, with or without props and in any season – will kick those creative cogs into action.

In The Studio

With or without props, studio shots are an opportunity to get your cat dolled up for the occasion. Cats tend to hate travelling, so if you hire a professional photographer, it’s well worth asking them to come to your home with a portable studio in tow. Don’t forget to groom your little fur baby before the day of the shoot!

Time For Sleeps

These candid shots are almost impossible to stage. Rather than resorting to point and click smartphone photos (the easy option), the idea is to always have your DSLR camera charged and ready to go. That way you can better control lighting, composition and aperture.

Play All Day

Capturing pictures of your cat playing is an opportunity to stage something a bit extra special for your little furry monster friend. Think of the hilarious and naughty things they love naturally doing and see if you can get it on camera. There are so many different ways to display cat photos as personalised gifts, so rather than just printing a single photo to canvas, consider collages, split image prints and wall displays.

Prop Things Up

Grab a prop and go wild (in the house that is). Whether it’s sunglasses, bowties or ‘cute as’ costumes, the humiliation is real. And very loveable.

Behind every great person, there’s a great cat.

Yes your feline majesty, we know you rule the roost. It’s not hard to capture your cat in this regal pose because it tends to be their ‘normal look’.

Silly Cat Photos

Your worst humiliation is only someone else’s momentary entertainment.

Unless you’re a cat and it’s permanently captured on camera! Ha! Catch those furry fools at their own game with some candid photos of them being seriously silly. Print it as a canvas collage and you’ll be laughing for years to come, right into their old age. Pay back time!
