Helping Stray Cats With Photography

I recently came across this fantastic website called Photographers for Animals. Their mission is to ” Inspire positive change on behalf of animals; to support those helping animals; and to document animals and the efforts being made on their behalf.”

Baltimore based Husband and Wife team Jason and Elizabeth Putsche have various projects on the go but their documentary, currently in production, called Community Cats was one that caught my eye. Through their work over the years the couple has documented the lives of feral cats, and with this film they will profile the people that care for them and the love hate relationship communities/cities have with stray cats.

Beside photography being a great medium to capture the beauty of animals, it also speaks to people in ways which words cannot. For me it makes an emotional connection and when it’s an image of something that I love, in this case cats, the impact is often stronger and longer lasting.

Sadly feral cats are heavily misunderstood and persecuted, so it always good to have them portrayed in a positive light along with individuals who are working to make their city a better place for these forgotten animals. It’s also wonderful to see the benefits of TNR, which is truly a humane way to help them, being profiled.
