PAW Calendar Cat of the Month, Carl
This was my second time photographing Carl, and I can’t believe he’s the same cat! The first year he appeared in the calendar, he made it clear I could only photograph him from one room away (because I was a VERY scary dangerous lady). After several photographs, that was enough and he was gone! Over the past few years, Carl has built up his confidence in his loving home and awaited his photoshoot on the living room sofa! He let me work all kinds of angles only inches from him… and I do mean work because he decided to just lay there while I did everything! I’m so glad he finally let me get so close to him.
About this project: In the summer of 2018 I had the honour of photographing 12 adorable cats who once belonged to the Lethbridge PAW Society but who now have comfortable, happy homes to call their own. Each of these cats were featured in PAW’s 2019 calendar, showing off the good that comes from people graciously donating to the society and providing foster homes for the abandoned cats.
About PAW Society: PAW (People for Animal Welfare) is based in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, and has been arranging the adoption of homeless cats since 2000. It is a non-profit society in the Province of Alberta and a Registered Canadian Charity.
