'Purrfect' 1x cat shots

 by Yvette Depaepe

Cats are amazing creatures valued for their companionship and loving behaviour.  Whether a pet, a feral or a stry, abondoned or a free roaming cat, they all have our empathy and sympathy.
Sigmund Freud even quotes: "Time spend with cats is never wasted."


by Iacob Anca

Did you know that...
- A cat’s brain is biologically more similar to a human brain than it is to a dog’s. Both humans and cats have identical regions in their brains that are responsible for emotions.
- A cat rubs against people not only to be affectionate but also to mark out its territory with scent glands around its face.
- A cat’s nose pad is ridged with a unique pattern, just like the fingerprint of a human.
- Cats cannot taste anything sweet.
- Cats greet one another by touching their noses together.

Photographing cats can be quite challenging but also funny and inspiring. Some 1x photographers are experts in this matter.  Look by yourself through this gorgeous gallery of pets, street cats, creatively edited shots and enjoy...

Great Yvette photos. An excellent job as always. Thanks for having me. A friendly greeting, and congratulations.
Great pictures, cheer up, it's perfect! Iacob Anca thank you for your work! Thank You Yvette!
Thanks for your appreciation, Mikhail ;-)
Meow! What a wonderful collection of images. I love cats (despite my profile image), but I was unaware that Mark Twain felt similarly until seeing Timo's quote! Here's another: "A cat is more intelligent than people believe, and can be taught any crime." Thanks to Yvette and the talented photographers for showing some of those "crimes".
Thanks for your fine feedback and another very adequate quote, Greg! I had so much fun collecting all these great cat shots ;-)
Great pictures, thank you Yvette!
;-) My pleasure, Aida! I wish I could take advantage of a "warm embrace" as your cat does ... It is really cold again here in Belgium after a few early spring days ...
Yvette's photographs are very interesting and lovely,I say well done to your preferred choices.
