The ‘Unflattering Cat Photo Challenge’ Is Still Trending And It’s Hilarious How Unphotogenic These Cats Are (New Pics)

As much as they’d like to be known as royalty and the rulers of our homes, cats aren’t always the elegant, refined, and noble creatures they present themselves as. And there are plenty of unflattering snaps of felines to prove this!

Twitter is simply obsessed with the Unflattering Cat Photo Challenge, and there’s a whole bunch of weird and unphotogenic new pics that we’d love to share with you, dear Pandas. Upvote the best of the worst pics as you scroll down below and, when you’re done, have a look through Bored Panda’s previous post about the challenge right here.

And you know what? These photos make us relate to cats that much more because they remind us of our own imperfect selves. Now those are the kinds of cattos I could imagine having around the house—they know they’re not perfect, like us. And that’s okay. Especially in 2020.

Taking an unflattering pic of your cat and then sharing it for the entire internet to see is all very well and good. But what can you do to take a good picture, say, if you suddenly decided to branch out and become a world-famous ‘catfluencer?’

Bored Panda previously spoke about what owners can do to take the best possible photos of cats with cat behaviorist and feline expert Ingrid Johnson, founder of Fundamentally Feline.

According to Ingrid, anyone who wants to take a good photo of their cats has the best chances of success when they do the photo shoot in the animals’ environment.

“Taking cats out of their home for a photo shoot is often where things go awry. Use natural light and play with them to encourage them to look confident and alert.”

Ingrid also suggested using toys to get the cats to look where you want them to. “You can shake treats, click, make some sort of sound to get them to look at the camera. As far as keeping them calm, again, it’s about working with what they are naturally giving you rather than trying to force something,” the cat behaviorist said.
