Photographer Shoots Girls And Their Adopted Cats
Not all cat ladies are crazy – as BriAnna Wills‘ series Girls And Their Cats show, having around three cats has no deleterious effect on one‘s mental health. The series focuses on portraits of women and their adopted cats in New York. Proud, energetic, and lively, the ladies radiate love for their mouse chasing companions.
