For the past two years, photographer Beth Mancuso has been taking pictures of her three sons and their relationship with their two cats. Her portraits, both candid and posed, offer a glimpse into the bond that has formed as the boys and cats grow up together as a family.

“Each boy shares a different relationship with the cats,” Mancuso writes. “My oldest son is by far the most obsessed with the cats. He tries to smuggle one in to his bedroom every night.”

“We couldn’t have asked for better cats. They are both so gentle with the boys and really do put up with a lot.”

“Cats aren’t always the easiest animals to love,” says Mancuso. “Anyone can love a dog but loving cats takes patience and compassion, and it is my hope that my boys are learning both these things from our beloved cats.”

Mancuso says she plans on continuing this project until either her boys leave home or her cats do. You can follow along with the series on Instagram at @manicmotherphotography.
