    Caitlin Stewart said (29 Apr 2008):

    does anyone else think that this photo is a little ridiculous? i mean, the kitten is terrified and it didn't naturally fall from the sky. it was tossed into the air just for the picture. ehhhh... not feelin' it.

  • Travis Middleton

    Travis Middleton said (29 Apr 2008):

    Dear Caitlin,
    Your oppionion is just another point of view. We caught the cats and they never hit the ground...therefore they lived and were not hurt...made for a great picture if u ask me...Photography is about doing something different...now they are grown and doing fine...consider it skydivin for cats....humans dont naturally fall out of the sky but they pay to do it...4 kittens One throw each...4 shots. this was the best...not really a crime if u ask me...You are entitled to ur oppionion though :)

  • Caitlin Stewart

    Caitlin Stewart said (29 Apr 2008):

    skydiving for cats?... well, if you put it that way! i never want to go skydiving in my life --- but if someone strapped a parachute on me and forced me out of a plane, i'd cry the whole way down. even if i landed safely, that would stick in my head for a very long time. the kitten wasn't physically injured. ok, great. you've made that quite apparent. but how scared was the cat? i bet extremely. i don't consider this a photograph. i consider it a point-and-shoot catch after someone had the bright idea to throw a kitten high enough into the air for it to be scared out of its mind. that's all.

  • Travis Middleton

    Travis Middleton said (29 Apr 2008):

    idk maybe the cat liked it? Thats also somethin we will never know. If you consider that a point and shoot then every photograh is a point and shoot. Scared out of his mind??? hmmm....were u there....no....WE CAUGHT him and PUT him back on the GROUND where he CONTINUED to PLAY with the rest of the kittens. Cats always land on their feet and we still caught him....idk maybe everybody hates this picture and thats y its been favorited 119 times...but idk im not a scientist....I think its GREAt that u think this cat is scarred for life from throwin him in the air. Jokes....That's all.

  • Caitlin Stewart

    Caitlin Stewart said (29 Apr 2008):

    this photo can have 350 favorites or 1,500 favorites and it will not change the fact that this cat never asked to be tossed straight up into the air like that. if this cat jumped down from a tree on its own or jumped off of steps or whatever... then that was the cat's choice!
    happy shooting! xo

    I gotta side with Caitlin here. In my opinion, this isn't anything more than a snapshot of some poor scared cat getting tossed in the air. Congrats on all the faves anyway.

    this shot is grainy.
    images of cats in terror do not inspire me to do anything except hope that you Travis gets a taste of his own medicine.
    there are better ways to get attention, Travis.

    Ok- Caitlin-jump off a bridge....don't worry, the water will be there to catch you. Serge- I agree with you.. occasionally the comments get quite entertaining. Thank you all for that. Matt- you are lame and grainy. Travis- you, your cat, the photo and idea all rock. I hate cats and they hate me...but I'll be sure to go home and snap a few while tossing my puppy around. I know for a fact HE likes it!

    "Whew...alright, I think I've got the landing pad in sight!" As a cat owner, I think this is a great shot! The kitten is concentrating hard on landing properly with paws spread! Good kitty. At it's small size, it's totally resilient. My cat has jumped up, in and out of more crazy places and things. This is just another way to view the world for a few seconds and take on another curious feat! I only wish my cat was small enough to try this stunt. Unfortunately, she's quite a large adult, and I think I'd hurt my back trying to catch her. I love it!

    As much as I don't like the idea of tossing a cat, it still ended up being a fantastic shot. Good job and glad it was caught!

  • Mal Stewart

    Great photo and greater idea Travis. Obviously this is going to open up another can of worms, BUT... Neighbours cats make good hats, I hate them, they are just natural born killers !..................throw him higher, it might make the little bastard think about what all the birds, lizards etc that he will kill in his life feel like just before their numbers up and he chomps their head off. We had, (and now have again) a family of seven water dragons on our property until the neighbours got a cat. I could'nt work out where they were all going until one day going to work I caught the cat on my front lawn with a dragon in it's mouth (beheaded) . I stopped and took the headless dragon into the neighbours and had a quiet word with them, and I have'nt seen the cat since (5 years ago now).... the water dragons are back in force as they were for years before the freekin fat assed cat came along and decided "killing for fun" is a good past time, and before anyone starts bleeting on about me killing the cat.... NO I did'nt, the neighbour agreed it was the wrong scenario and got rid of it. Dont ask me how, as I don't give a shit. The chinese know cats....ask them! I love animals too, but not cats ! Im with Christopher on this one, get real, it's just a well set up shot and no animals were hurt.......have a laugh and loosen up.
