A Striking Photo Series Of Beautiful Adoptable Black Cats Posing Against A Dark Background

Los Angeles photographer Casey Elise, who previously captured the quiet elegance of adoptable cats who are blind or have limited eyesight in hopes of finding them a new home, has put together another striking photo series in which she posed beautiful and adoptable black cats from West Los Angeles Animal Services and Milo’s Sanctuary against a dark background in ordder to emphasize their unique features and personalities. Just like black dogs, cats with darker coats have a harder time getting adopted, which is why Elise embarked on this project.

“For this series, I photographed black cats against a black background to emphasize their beauty and showcase their personalities. Black cats have the lowest adoption rates and the highest euthanasia rates, in part because they typically don’t photograph well. I wanted to show that it is possible to get beautiful pictures of black cats. I hope my photos inspire people to adopt black cats and to volunteer for their local shelter.”
