Bengal Cat: The Greatest Showman

This Bengal cat is straight out of The Greatest Showman. He’s the Ringmaster in a circus. The compère of a high energy show, dazzling the customers who roar their approval. At their best, Bengal cats have a stunning high contrast appearance supported by energy and athleticism. It is all there in this great photograph which captures the moment. I have a similar one on the website by the great American cat photographer, Helmi Flick, which I have also reproduced below.

How was the photo done? Well, judging by the photo, it was taken while the cat was playing with and throwing around a homemade toy (it looks gray and fluffy in the picture). The posture is the exact moment the cat has picked up the toy and is flinging it over his shoulder to his right (our left). It is an instant moment very nicely captured. Helmi Flick did the same in her Bengal cat dancing photo. In that one, her husband, Ken, was waving around a cat tease out of frame and the cat was trying to catch it.

Hi, I am 70-years-of-age at 2019. For 14 years before I retired at 57, I worked as a solicitor in general law specialising in family law. Before that I worked in a number of different jobs including professional photography. I have a longstanding girlfriend, Michelle. We like to walk in Richmond Park which is near my home because I love nature and the landscape (as well as cats and all animals).
