Cats are natural hams. No wonder they make great photo subjects.
Cats and models … they might have more in common than I previously thought. They can both be finicky eaters (models out of gig-getting necessity, and cats out of pure annoyance), and both probably have above-average grooming standards. But I never noticed just how model-like cats can be until I came across this photo series: "24 Awkward Modeling Poses Acted Out By Cats.”

24 Awkward Modeling Poses Acted Out by Cats >>

The title is intriguing, but the subhead is funny bone ticklish: "Because if anyone’s used to being in an uncomfortable position, it’s a cat.” — hilarious and spot-on, at the same time. Check out these kitties caught on film and/or posed perfectly for some mindless fun. I seriously want to adopt the kitty in photo number 20 … too cute for words. The last photo exposes Grumpy Cat as a poser, clearly stealing his trademark frown from an unnamed male model.

Buzzfeed doesn’t stop at awkward model poses. They say some of our average housecats’ looks and stances could elevate them to male model status.

My cats Peggy, Annabella and Prince will pose for a picture on their time. I am now realizing in the last 2 years that they aren't living in my world, I am living in their world and they rule the house. I love my cats so much and want the best life for them.

Very interesting, I'm wondering that model cats can earn lot of good incomes for the living expenses and maybe I'll become dependent and my cat as independent for income taxes. LOL!
