Mews and Nips: Photographers Capture the Secret Lives of Street Cats


I recently came across a wonderful project: for over five years, Baltimore photographers Jason and Elizabeth Putsche have been capturing the lives of street cats on camera by documenting feral colonies across the country via stunning photos. Through their nonprofit organization, Photographers for Animals, the couple is in the process of producing a documentary that details the lives of community cats and the people and programs that help them. The organization’s mission is to “inspire positive change on behalf of animals; to support those helping animals; and to document animals and the efforts being made on their behalf.” For more on on the organization, and more beautiful photos, visit

If you missed any of the stories featured on The Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Monday, we explored why cats hate going to the vet and what to do about it, on Tuesday, we revisited the popular of topic of the unique personality of tortoiseshell cats and had Jackson Galaxy and two feline vets weigh in on whether tortitude is fact or fiction, on Wednesday, we got cat photography tips from a pro, and on Friday, we paid tribute to Lorie Huston, DVM. And don’t forget to enter our giveaway for a Feather Whirl™ toy for your cats!

Today’s video is sure to generate an “awww” or two. Enjoy!

Have a great weekend!
