I like to call myself a "Catographer" because it is from almost 6 years that I've been taking only photos of cats. I've worked on 2 main projects (Passions and the ongoing C-AT Work) before starting the Cats in Venice project that became a book in April 2018.

So during these years, I met a huge quantity of amazing cats, each one with different qualities and behaviors. I've always tried to catch cats' expressions of satisfaction, or Catisfaction as I like to call it, a sort of happy face or feeling (previously here).

This is what I like the most, when cats show some kind of happiness. So many people say that cats don't smile as dogs do... Well this is the proof that cats can smile as well!

So I did a selection of photos from different cat-projects I've realized during these years that resumes what Catisfaction looks like. I don't know if they are really happy or not but their faces in some moments of relaxing when they are really enjoying cuddles make me smile and give me a sense of peace that seems to be something like happiness.

I like cats because they don't do what you want them to do, they understand us very well but they just won't do what you are asking for. I think that's why people think they are antisocial. But what makes me happy is exactly when I take a photo like these: it is all so spontaneous, no one can tell them to 'be satisfied' and I realize that the moment is so precious and intimate. That's how Catisfaction looks like!

Cats know what you want. They just don't care. And that's not entirely true, either. Mine will hover like little nurses whenever one of us gets sick or upset.

Mine used to bop her forehead against my lips every time I asked for a kiss by making little kissing noises... I miss her so much :-/

The expression on his face is adorable! He looks, to me at any rate, like he's just a wee bit tipsy.
