Is This the WORST Adoption Photo EVER???

From my local Animal Control adoption website. They are doing a great disservice with this picture, no matter what they say! Think I'll call them Monday.

1211-0962 Jack's Web Page
Domestic Short Hair (short coat) : : Male (not neutered) : : Baby : : Medium

More Pics...
Won't you think about adopting me?


Print an adoption flyer for 1211-0962 Jack!

Thank you for your interest in our adoptable animals. If you would like more information about this pet, see the Shelter information below. We would love to help you rescue a perfect pet!

My name is Jack. I actually came in with Sally (1211-0961). We were brought in since our people couldn't take us to their new home. I'm about 5 months old and entertaining. Don't let my picture fool you, I wasn't being mean, I was talking and the lady got a picture of me in action. I'd love to find home to call my own, is that with you? Come ask for me, my number is 1211-0962.

Oooh, I've always wanted an insane cat that will frighten the neighbors
and eat the dog! He's just the one!

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
And never regret anything that made you smile.

Unbelievable that they would choose that photo. The explanation of it is in small print.

I agree! Can you imagine seeing that picture on PetFinder and wanting to read any further??! They may mean well, but it's not smart IMHO.

Wow. Looks like a Halloween cat. Looks a bit like fear, not play.
I'd adopt him and his sister because I love Basement Cats.

Not a good pic to choose.

I have to ask, what is a Basement Cat?

Petfinder did a class in Tucson. They picked thru local rescues photos showing good ones and bad ones and explained why. We were happy to see one I had taken. I put up a turquoise table cloth in the background and had one of my black fosters reaching up on two legs for an unseen toy. It expressed his playful personality. It also showed off his total black body. Black cats are extremely hard to photograph. I have a cannon digital camera that will take several shots continuously. Why rescues dont make an effort of taking good shots of animals to capture peoples attention is beyond me! That photo Marcia posted turns a lot of people off

The picture explanation is in VERY small print - I would have a hard time getting past that awful photo! I'm going to call the Monday - maybe even go there in person to be sure my message gets to the right persons and not brushed aside!
