“Say what you will about the internet, but it sure has done a lot for cats.” -who knows who (maybe it was 30 Rock?)
Back in May the Boise Cat Clinic and I put together a photoshoot to raise money for Conrad Strays. During their open house, I set up shop in a small room at the Cat Clinic. Armed with a white backdrop, 3 modeling lights, a box of cat toys, and a fantastic cat entertainer (Ambria — a vet tech) I did my best to capture the personalities of these kitties during their 15 minute photo sessions.
If you don’t have a vet for your kitties, Dr. Roller over at the Boise Cat Clinic is fantastic. Trust me.
We got a kitten a couple of months ago. Then another. Meet Wallace (the grey tabby) and Gromit (the brown tabby). They have the ability to move seamlessly from cuddling to biting to grooming to fighting and back to cuddling again.
To be quite honest these photos really aren’t up to par — they are just quick snaps from a few moments of downtime during my work day. Eventually I will come up with some cute idea for a theme and spend an hour (a real pet session) photographing them for a more legit post. But in case I miss their kitten-y window of cuteness, I just had to do some quick shots now. Meow!
Sarah Woverton, a seasoned chiropractor, works on fellow humans out of her studio in the Northend. What makes her business unique is that she also serves pet clientele out of a veterinarian office in Bown Crossing.
Of course, initially it sounds a bit absurd to take your dog to a chiropractor–especially from my perspective as a non-insured (hopefully my parents don’t read this!) freelance photographer. Upon a bit more thought it makes a surprising amount of sense. Here’s my point: it is rare for pet owners to spend small amounts of money for regular preventative care but it is not rare for pet owners to drop $5k on hip replacement surgery for their pup. With the preventative care you’re likely providing a higher quality of life for your beloved pet too. And who doesn’t love a happy dog?
