Shelter Cats

Remember Traer’s Scott’s heartbreaking portraits of shelter dogs? Tucson, Arizona-based photographer Michael Kloth had a similar idea when he shot these incredibly sweet photos of shelter cats. Judging from this statement, it seems as though his heart is in the right place.

“I've been an animal lover for as long as I can remember. As I move through life I've come to realize that it is not enough for me to enjoy their company, but rather that I feel compelled to share my time and experience being an advocate for the homeless ones. I see that while people love their cats and dogs, they continue to make decisions that combine to condemn millions of them to death every year and I want to be a voice for change.

“Each week I photograph adoptable animals at our local adoption agencies. My experience has been that quality photography is the first step in marketing these furry works of art to potential adopters. It is my hope that I can use these local animals as a voice for the millions of homeless animals nation and worldwide. My debut book Shelter Cats was created as a first step toward reaching that audience.”

Shelter Cats is now available everywhere books are sold. It features beautiful animals at the Benton-Franklin Humane Society, Woodford Humane Society and the Tri-Cities Animal Shelter. Although I’m a tried and true dog person, I can’t help but want to take one of these personality-filled kittens home.
