Shake Cats

Shake catCats are some pretty majestic creatures with their luscious fur and graceful demeanor. But Portland-based photographer Carli Davidson (previously) has come up with a photo series that shows us they can be goofy too!

Entitled ‘Shake Cats’, the series features felines photographed in mid-shake, seemingly bursting in a mix of water, fur, saliva, and wacky expressions. According to Davidson, she was able to coax her subjects into shaking by either petting them with a wet hand, or simply giving them a blissful ear cleaning. No cats were harmed during this process, though we completely understand if they went home a little grumpy.

The series took four years to finish and needed 100 cats to pose for her. 61 of these cats also happen to be rescues who got their portraits (ones that projected them in a more flattering light) taken to help boost adoption.

And if photos of wacky cats aren’t enough to get you to purchase Davidson’s book, a portion of the proceeds will help fund three Portland shelters where most of the subjects live in.
