This is a very good point made by a blogger. A lot of cat adoption starts with a photograph on the internet.
And a lot, pretty much all of it, is poor. I am not being critical. We don’t expect good photographs of rescue cats because the rescuers are not trained in photography and/or don’t have the time I reckon.
However, it might be time and money well invested if someone had some photographic skills at a cat shelter or rescue organization.
With a bit of judicious lighting and composition together with sharp focus, a sweet expression and a clean background, you’ll certainly get more inquiries to adopt.
It is this sort of thing that I have been referring to in other articles. There should be some lateral thinking to “push the envelope” with the intention of reducing the killing of unwanted cats.
Do you think I have a point or am I meowing up the wrong tree?!
Here’s Honey who is looking for a new home (please see comments).
Leah says this about Honey:
She’s about 18 months – 2 years. Sweet natured and fussy (but on her terms!). Gets on with other cats (unless they get ‘in her face’ too much then she has a quick swipe and a warning growl then all is forgotten and she’s back to normal. Litter trained. De-flead and wormed. Blood tested negative and spayed. Energetic loves to play outside so a garden would be essential.
Honey is a beautiful classic tabby and white with a fine tabby pattern.
