It's hard when you're a cat mom, and you want to celebrate your baby, but people think it's weird to flood their social media timeline with pics of your furry child. Thankfully, photographer Kitty Schaub is doing her part to normalize kitten photoshoots that make a purrfect "birth announcement."
Schaub recently adopted a kitten for her 5-year-old daughter, Amelie. Luna the kitten is apparently very pliant, and follows her tiny human everywhere, then passes out on top of her. Schaub told The Huffington Post that she impulsively wrapped Luna up in a blanket during one of her sleepy times. When the cat put up no objection, a star was born:
With such an itty-bitty model, even the most basic accessories turn into a wonderland, like this salad bowl that looks like it's stuffed with a hat:
Schaub posted some of her snaps to her Facebook page and they immediately went viral. Everyone wanted to know how Schaub got Luna to comply with this manhandling, but the answer is that she's just so darn tired! “She didn’t even wake up,” Schaub said of the photo shoot, “We had to try to wake her up to get her to open her eyes, but she was very comfortable in there.”
Everyone wants more pics of Luna, so Schaub has announced that she is making a calendar that will be available in December 2017. Proceeds will be going to a cat shelter organization in Michigan, where Schaub lives, called Save a Stray. She encourages everyone to adopt and save an adorable cat like Luna.
There are, of course, no guarantees that you won't pick a kitty who refuses to wear a headband, but a photoshoot of your cat wildly tearing up the blanket your wrapped it in could also go viral!
But you can't have Luna. She's a one person kitty. When she's awake.
