seth casteel captures rescue kittens and cats mid-pounce

 

seth casteel, the artist and author who brought us underwater puppies and underwater babies, is back with photographed felines, and this time they ‘pounce’. the newly released book of animal portraits features more than 80 previously unpublished photographs of cats and kittens as they leap, jump, and hurl through the air. with arms outstretched and paws protracted, each of the felines are captured in casteel’s signature up-close, mid-action style. the resulting shots form a humorous and heartwarming series of images for the cat-obsessed and curious alike.

while the photographed kittens and cats featured in ‘pounce’ are sure to spread smiles, at the heart of the book is casteel’s commitment to animals in need of love, attention, and care. for this series, the photographer collaborated with numerous animal shelters and rescue groups across the united states and canada, spotlighting kittens without a home. every single featured feline was available for adoption, or had been already rescued, at the time he snapped the pictures.

  • Are you kidding me? This is the same photographer that took those awesome photos of dogs as they are diving into water. Great photography work! These cats were NOT thrown or tossed. He captured them “in mid-pounce” and that’s obvious that this is what these cats are doing. I can only assume, Marc David Biffi and TW, that you have never owned a cat? Their positions are obviously “in mid-pounce” and not from being thrown. For God’s sake. They are AWESOME photos.

  • Great!

  • Yeah! Someone should gently toss the photographer a few times to show him how awful it truly is.

  • Throwing cats in the air until the shot is right? animal cruelty.
