Holiday Cards

Cat Holiday Cards

It started innocently enough. The year was 2008 and we didn’t know what to do for our Holiday card. We wanted our card to be something funny and unique. As animal lovers, it was important for us to advocate our passion for animal welfare with our holiday message. So we dressed our kittens, Gracie and Peach, in matching argyle sweaters and tried a photo shoot. It didn't go over so well, considering cats are horribly moody and difficult models, but we did manage to get one shot for our card. The response was overwhelmingly positive, so we decided that every year, we would design our holiday card starring our cats. Since retouching is one of our strong suits, we decided it would be easier to create composites rather than try to pose the cats, which allowed for even more silliness and creativity that would become our little Holiday tradition.
