They say that as time passes by, your personality is reflected in your pet’s and vice versa. If that’s true, I wonder why my cats are such clowns! Wait a minute…
After the success of Do You Look Like Your Dog? – a memory card game where you match dogs with their owners, animal photographer Gerrard Gethings is back at it again, this time with felines.
Do You Look Like Your Cat? features 25 cats and their owners, from cute kittens to angry-looking cats. It’s not surprising that most of the cats look like they don’t give a hoot because we all know that’s what they do best.
Gethings started photographing pets and animals in 2008 after he found a puppy of his own, Baxter. “For me, a domestic pet is no less beautiful or majestic than a wild animal,” he told Insider.
Take a look at 10 of cards from the game shared with Insider and feel a bit of warm, fluffy joy as you scroll down and gaze upon them:
Henry and Carlotta
Tom and Jasper
Tobias and Hero
Walt and Charlie
Leila and Daphne
Gunther and Albert
Matthew and Hubert
Marielle and Jacques
Alexis and Camilla
Arlo and Buttercup
These pictures may look funny but Gethings say he takes his art very seriously, with layers to each picture. “I don’t want to create images of animals that are patronising,” he told Insider.
“My subjects are complex and colourful creatures, full of pathos, humour and unpredictability. I want them to appear epic.”
