I wish to change the way people think about disabled cats. I wish to change the mind set of dividing cats into categories of worse and better, and hope that people would treat disabled cats normal. Not special, not worse but, simply, normal.

That is why I chose to create this photography project. In hopes that at least a tiny per cent of people will stop being afraid of and change the way they look at disabled cats. It doesn’t matter whether a cat lacks an ear, eye, tail or eye, if it has leukemia or any other disease. It is still a cat. It still purrs, washes itself slowly while squinting it’s eyes, meows, knocks things off the table, pulls clothes off a hanger, sits in it’s beloved box, looks out the window most of the day, tries sitting in weird and much too narrow spaces, sleeps in awkward twisted positions, makes funny faces after smelling something, has huge pupils right before throwing itself in attack, jumps and turns amazingly in mid-air, headbonks…

My project consists of photographs of disabled cats snapped during those moments of feline behavior. I have tried my best to capture the fact, that regardless to their disabilities, their behavior is just like that of any other cat’s. Inability is a state of mind. They don’t feel worse so why would we treat them as such?
