Funny Portraits Of Cats Shaking Themselves Dry By Carli Davidson

Carli Davidson is a 34-year-old animal rights activist and photographer from Portland, Oregon. Her latest project, “Shake Cats,” captures more than 60 felines, most of them rescues, as they shake their heads after grooming or being petted. A book by the same name is being published today.

Davidson began her career photographing birds of prey at the Oregon Zoo. In 2013, she published a book titled “Shake,” which we covered on Bored Panda.

“I was inspired by the animals in my life, mainly my dog Norbert who had so much drool to give the world, and my walls for that matter, ” Carli told Bored Panda. “I wanted to work with mostly rescues so we reached out to local shelters and friends who had rescued their cats…One of my favorite things about working with animals is that about 30-45 minutes has to be factored in per animal to make them happy, which makes me so happy. Lots of treats, and pets, and just sitting on the floor together.”

Thanks to Carli Davidson for the interview!

I will never look at my cats the same again. I'm equal parts amused and disturbed! :)

I'd like to have this ability to clean my eye with my tongue.

The grey, long furred one looks like its body was made of cloud, especially in the last shot of vid. Amazing
