The pet we chose for ourselves will undoubtedly spend their entire life – literally – with us. As a result, it’s no surprise if they begin to appear and act like your alter ego. After all, the adage “descended for generations” isn’t entirely incorrect. The pet takes on the personality of its owner.
If you still don’t believe us, we guarantee that by the time you finish reading this article, your jaw will be on the floor and your eyes will be as large as golf balls.
“Do you have any resemblance to your cat?”
It’s the brainchild of London-based photographer Gerrard Gethings. Gerrard has a distinct and amusing manner of captivating his audience’s attention. And, no doubt, you’ve figured out what it is based on the project’s title.
He captures humans and their animals in pictures. However, both images, unbelievably, emanate so many clear similarities between the pet and his master that one would normally miss them. When you put the two images next to one other, you can only envision the viewers’ expressions because of the way he shoots the portraits, the stances are highly enhanced and flawlessly emboss these parallels between the two.
You’re probably wondering why he exclusively likes cats and cat owners. It’s not the first time he’s photographed animals with their owners. Gerrard Gethings’ initial inspiration for “Do You Look Like Your Cat” was none other than the”Do You Look Like Your Dog” initiative.
Since that project, which focused on dogs and their owners, garnered such positive feedback, he wanted something new, something more interesting and motivating than the previous one, and this was it. He apparently decided that cats were the next best alternative, and you and I both understand why.
It’s true that photographing a cat is far more difficult and time-consuming than photographing a dog. While humans may readily direct dogs to do certain positions, cats will not comply. Our wonderful photographer, on the other hand, managed to get the greatest, yet odd, images of these kitties.
Gerrard’s social media accounts, Instagram and Twitter, as well as his website gerrardgathings.com, may be used to learn more about both of these initiatives.
What’s even funnier is that Gerrard was motivated by the outpouring of support and recognition for the effort to make it into a game, which, as you would expect, is also called “Do You Look Like Your Cat?” It’s a humorous card game in which you have to guess and match photographs of cats and their owners from a deck of 50 cards.
