A photographer captured images of cats and owners who look hilariously alike

  • The animal photographer Gerrard Gethings is back again with another matching game after the success of “Do You Look Like Your Dog?”
  • This time, it focuses on cats and owners who look hilariously alike – unsurprisingly, most of the cats are unamused.
  • “My subjects are complex and characterful creatures, full of pathos, humour, and unpredictability. I want them to appear epic,” Gethings said.

Gethings began photographing pets and animals in 2008 after he brought home his very own puppy, named Baxter.

Though these photos might be silly, Gethings take them seriously.

“I don’t want to create images of animals that are patronising,” Gethings said. “My subjects are complex and characterful creatures, full of pathos, humour, and unpredictability. I want them to appear epic.”


Gethings has turned the photographs into a memory game, “Do You Look Like Your Cat?”
