Cat
Could this cat be like Cooper and become the next photographer from the animal world?


With two exhibitions under his belt (or should that be collar?) and several photos sold, it seems that a feline photographer from America is doing rather well for himself. Cooper, whose owners fitted him with a timer-operated camera, takes shots with a cat's-eye view. One of his owners, Michael Cross, told the Mail he simply wanted to find out what his cat did all day so they fitted the camera on his collar which takes a picture every two minutes.

The report in the Mail Online suggests some of his photographs have been sold for as much as £200. The cat now has thousands of fans on Facebook and has also appeared on TV in the USA.

If you want to turn your cat into a photographer take a look at Mr Lee's CatCam which is available to buy.

Purr-fect pictures! Apparently The family gave him a fish-eye lens to work with originally but he ate it.

Latest news is that the Los Angeles Times has offered him a job as a Furr-in correspondent. He's on his way to his first assignment in Outer Mogolia to photograph Ghengis Khan's mouseoleum at this very moment.

Yes - chiefly the people who spend $130 for an UNFRAMED print of a very paw (sorry, hee hee) image. The owners are very clever people, making a fortune!
