Since we first wrote about the heartwarming friendship between a girl and her cat, Russian photographer Andy Prokh has continued to enchant us with charming photos of his daughter Katherine growing up with her adorable British Shorthair cat LiLu. Although both Katherine and LiLu are now one year older, the affection between the two friends is as sweet as ever, with one significant change–the addition of a Scottish Strite kitten to the family.
With two lovable feline friends to play with now, six-and-a-half-year-old Katherine has double the fun. Her father faithfully documents the adventures of the adorable trio, capturing images of the three balancing on books, playing chess, having a tea party, solving tough equations on a whiteboard, and getting into all sorts of shenanigans.
Prokh’s whimsical photos have a unique storytelling aspect to them that is paired perfectly through the classical, fine-art aesthetic. The lively personalities of each subject, the affection between the three of them, and the photographer’s love for them all shine through in each black-and-white image, making for a heartwarming series that captures the essence of childhood, love, family, and friendship.
