Tabby Cat

So, this was supposed to be a run-of-the-mill tester shoot, but the shots actually came out quite beautifully.

This is my little model, or what I refer to as my ‘Tester Model’ since I normally get her to model in locations to see how the shots turn out before the real models come in. However, for this shoot, I wanted someone young to pose with the cat, so she turned out to be just the ticket!

The cat is mine, her name is Tabby, (yes, I see the irony in that she is actually a tabby cat), or ‘Tabitha’ as my mother likes to call her – or what we call her when she’s being naughty. She is a year old and one of the most affectionate cats I’ve ever owned.

Ah yes, what is that animal in the last shot? That is a guinea pig. To be precise, my model’s guinea pig who’s name is Prince, (don’t ask why because even I’m not sure). Oh, and no, he is not named after the singer.

If I was to be honest, I wish I’d had a better camera for this shoot. Oh well, you have to work with what you’ve got!
