The Fuller Kittens.

This is probably the cutest shoot I’ve ever done (no offense, past clients, but you just can’t compare to kittens, okay?). At one point I found myself in a bathroom upstairs with the parents of our previous wedding client Katie, two kittens, and a box turtle named Henrietta. That’s one of those points in your life where you ask yourself, “How did I get here?” It was awesome.

These are the Fuller kittens… furry children of Sue and Fred for Sue’s birthday and picked out by Katie, who is known in her family for picking out the best cats. They are a little over 11 weeks old. Arthur is orange and white. Lily is tortoise shell and white. They’re a brother and sister team of fuzzy goodness and insanity. Their current favorite toy is a stuffed buzzard and an actual rabbit’s ear which we all think is pretty gross but the kittens think it’s fantastic. They wrestle together and play together and sleep together and do everything together and make you want to go out and get kittens RIGHT NOW IMMEDIATELY.

Every once in a while I meet a person with dogs who says they don’t like cats because cats don’t have any personality. Or they say they only like cats who are nice and friendly. Granted, I am sure there are some not nice/unfriendly cats out there, but every cat I have ever known has had a huge personality… it’s just that they don’t particularly care for many people besides their owners and their closer friends. We are crazy cat people ourselves so I’m quite partial to the feline club, but no matter what your views are – it’s a bit impossible to see these pictures of Logan+Sully and think that cats don’t have personalities.

Logan Lemewski (“Lemmy”) and Sullivan McSkillet (“Sully) are my nephew-cats. They belong to my sister Laura and live with her in Pittsburgh where they win the all-time award for being  the craaaaaziest cats in the entire world (photographic evidence below). She recently referred a wedding to me and wanted to use the referral bucks to get pictures of her furry crew, so I took their portraits before Christmas and documented the crazy: the catnip bubbles, the jumping off of doors, the hopping up on cabinets, the drinking from faucets, the red cat pajamas. They are stinking adorable but also absolutely insane. She’s had many stories over the past few years and it basically boils down to the conclusion that they must be getting their paws on some pretty heavy catnip stored away in some secret stash.

Cat Answer Key: Sully is the black cat, and Lemmy is the grey and white cat.

<3 Love you, Lemmy, Sully, and Laura!
