Heartwarming cat photography is a common category among these feline depictions. Casting aside the mystery and dark connotations that cats have been identified with throughout the years, these photographic felines are shown playing, pouncing, and purring their way through life. Frequently, pet pictures are included in this type of photo along with props such as collars, boas, hats, and even flowers! Examples of these works include 'The Cat's Pet' by Letizia Volpi and 'Cats and Cherry' by C. Nikolson, although there's such a wide variety of these form of photographic animal images that it’s hard to pin down any particular image as being typical of the category.
For the people who are interested in cat photographs, these pictures are a labor of love. Frequently the people who are interested in these still animal portraits are the same ones that are interested in the animal itself. This is a curious quirk of cat photography that isn't adhered to as strictly in other cases of pet photo images. And yet, as more people have come to embrace these lovable felines, they have also come to embrace the images which depict them as well.
