As if you needed any more proof that our benevolent overlords, cats, are beautiful! The ‘Supermodel Cats’ subreddit collects photos of the prettiest cats on Planet Earth (soon to be renamed Planet Meow) and they look so gorgeous, they really should be strutting on the catwalk.

Remember to upvote your fave pics as you scroll down and let us know which felines caught your eye the most and why. Just make sure that your cat’s nowhere near your screen—it might get jealous!

We wanted to get to grips with taking photos of cats, so we reached out to a professional. Toronto-based pet photographer Karen Weiler told Bored Panda that when it comes to portraits, she finds that getting down to the level of the pet produces beautiful portraits. "However, it really depends on the type of image you are trying to create—shooting from underneath or below eye-level or from above can capture other aspects of their personality," she explained. Read on for our full interview with Karen.

In other words, different angles will have different effects, so that's something to keep in mind as you search for that 'purrfect' shot for your supermodel cat. And getting down to eye level might work wonders for one of your pets but not another.

Karen also opened up about the prepwork that she does before she takes pictures of pets. "I ask that the pet be free of mats and dirt/debris. Once in the studio, I have a brush and towel available to ensure kitty is picture ready," she said.

Meanwhile, the owner also has a responsibility to make their pet look 'meowgnificent' sooner rather than later. "If they take their cat to a groomer for an appointment, I generally suggest that they have that done a week prior to the session—not the day of."

In a previous interview, Karen explained to Bored Panda that lighting is the most important thing in photography. Add a relaxed and happy pet into the mix and you’ll have a winning photo.

Cats are different from pets like dogs because they respond much more to movement, so you can grab their attention before taking a snap by using a toy. (Catnip also works in a pinch.) Now that should help you turn your super cat into a supermodel.

In my mind, there are 5 parts to looking like the feline version of Cara Delevingne. The first part is genetics which we can’t really do anything about, but the second part is equally as important (if not more)—health! Eating well and exercising your paws might be at the very core of beauty, but that’s just part of the equation of looking like a model.

You also need proper grooming and an owner who can work the camera well. Lastly, it’s all about confidence, baby! You gotta believe you’re a supermodel cat to be seen as a supermodel cat!

But the most important thing is making sure that your cat’s healthy and fit. So make sure you spend a sliver of your time each day playing with it so it (and you) moves around. However, unlike dogs, cats don’t need that much exercise to stay fit. What’s most important is regulating portion size and making sure they eat proper food.

Also, be sure to speak to your vet about any vitamins or supplements you might need to give your pet to turn its fur into a shining coat meant for the red carpet.
