Take Fun Portraits of Your Cat Using a Flatbed Scanner

Did you know that flatbed scanners make fun portrait cameras as well? Just place your cat on the glass, do a quick scan, and you’ll have a strange looking portrait shot from below! Apparently this is pretty popular among cat lovers — a Flickr search for “cat scanner” returns thousands of results! This gives “cat scan” a whole new meaning!

    Don’t forget that the intense light from a scanner can damage sensitive retinas, so when you’re holding your cat down, look away, or wear sunglasses.

    Since every cat’s paw prints are unique, this can be a quick form of identification. Now you can find out which of the dratted furballs is walking on your car!

    Some would call this “NSFW” if you’re a vet or something like that.

    …imagine if your cat did this to you. Imagine the humiliation.

    I got this idea from a movie called Psycho Cop 2.
