‘Shopped Pictures of Small House Cats Living as Big Cats in the Wild


For recent Whiskas advertising campaign based around the slogan “Feeding your cat’s instincts,” photographer George Logan and retoucher Tony Swinney teamed up to create a series of clever photographs showing tiny, domestic house cats engaging in “big cat” activities out in the wild. “Big Cat, Small Cat” is the name of the series.

The images show house cats stalking zebras, attacking elephants, and hanging out with feline relatives.







You can find larger versions of these photographs over on Logan’s website, and see the advertisements that resulted over at Ads of the World.

    Indeed. Plus I cross-checked the EXIF data to the sun’s location to calculate what the shadow projection angle ratio should be. My findings indicate an incorrect match. Fake. All day.

    Never heard of sarcasm? jesus!

  • ripley

    You mean once humans are gone? (“man” is an outdated term if you’re referring to all humankind). Actually, I think cats would do ok for themselves. They were one of the last animals to be domesticated, and they haven’t been bred to be stupid, like cows or sheep – those are the animals that would have trouble surviving if people die out as they rely heavily on us for survival, however cats seem pretty happy just to roam around by themselves and hunt birds.
