There's something about cats and cameras. As we well know, the internet is full of funny cat videos and photos. It's as if our feline friends are even more at home in front of a camera than a teen Tumblr blogger is.
I don't have a cat of my own, but when I'm out and about I like photographing the cats I come across. I reckon it's even easier to photograph strange cats. Unlike your own kitty, strange cats know you're not going to feed them so they don't try their passive-aggressive "Oh, poor starving me!" routine.
Some cats will instantly pose for you, but others will need to determine if you're a good sort before they do anything. If you stick out a finger and they gleefully rub their face against it, you're in. If they run away into a nearby bush, well, it's best you just be on your way.
These are a selection of some of my favourite cats that I've photographed around Auckland and Wellington.
And, of course, we want to see your favourite cat photos, whether it's the kitties in your neighbourhood, or your own special cat.
