Glamour Shots

I often take Chica to see her brother Keanu (Kovie). My sister and I enjoy taking them almost everywhere with us, granted kittens are welcome. Kovs and Chica LOVE visiting pet stores. We go to Mounds often, they play on the cat trees and have several friends who are employees there. They're celebs at a couple of the pet stores, because they are so cute and so well behaved. I am fully glad my sister and I have been socializing these two so much- nothing phases them! Dogs, people, loud noises, car rides, strange smells, strange cats... they respond with curiosity and frisk.

So anyways, my mom sent Sarah and I down to Petco to pick up some crickets for the anoles. We got there and noticed a photo-backdrop set up. Immediately we were noticed by the photographer, who grabbed us and insisted we have a photo-shoot right then and there. We were informed that each of us get a free 10 x 13 portrait just for participating! Of course we agreed to it.

Needless to say, Kov and Chic totally hammed it up. They ended up attracting a crowd of about 15 people, all watching and laughing at their antics. Kovie kept being a stinker and jumping out of the box they were posed in, or running at the noise maker that was intended to get them to look at the camera. It was a lot of fun, and the photographer got some amazing shots.

We get to pick up the pictures next weekend, and I'll of course be posting them! I just thought I'd share this- it might be happening in all Petcos, or maybe just mine I am not sure.

Re: Glamour Shots

That does sound like a lot of fun, can't wait to see the pictures!

I will not try it with any of mine, though. They are not as socialized as your kittens and they would be very, very unhappy and totally freaked out.

Re: Glamour Shots

Oh I know. I was joking with my mom about how say, Nito, or Fella would have done at pictures. We did impressions of how we thought they'd react, that made us giggle. Nito probably would have his pelt fully poofed, his eyes wide, looking quite stressed. Fella would be very, very irritated with us.

Nito would have smiled like this:
"AHHHHHHH! OMG! WHAT IS GOING ON!?!??!?!? I SCARED I REALLY SCARED!"

And Fella would have smiled like this:

"I'm going to kill you in your sleep." *narrowed eyes, half turned back ears*

Re: Glamour Shots


I wonder if they get many cats in at all. I did stop at the local Petco today and there were a couple of ladies there trying to get people to come for free photographs next week. The thought is nice anyway, I would love to have Geri quality pictures of my kitties.

Re: Glamour Shots

That is so very cool!! All of it!! That they are that socialized and the photos too! Sounds like they are special cats and so deserving of their own photo shoot!!!

Re: Glamour Shots

They are a bit too washed-out in color for me to see much detail, but what I *can* see looks AWESOME! I am amazed at how relaxed the kitties were, they showed *NO* anxiety at all. The photog got some great shots of them, and I mean *calandar worthy* photos! Lucky-lucky-lucky!

Re: Glamour Shots

Yea, unfortunately they put lower quality pictures on the website. I'm sure to discourage people from going and printing them out on their own and/or stealing the pictures. I'll try to scan some of the prints when I get them.

The bunnies had their day too!
