Cats in Bowties
The Cats in Bowties Project is a portrait series created by photographer Lindsi Jones which features current and former shelter cats wearing handcrafted bowties. Most of the cats featured in the series have been adopted, but many are still looking for forever homes. The goal and purpose of the Cats in Bowties series is to raise awareness for felines by showing off the beauty and variety of amazing former and current shelter cats.
One of the greatest things about love is sharing it. I have been fortunate in life to have hundreds of happy couples and families share love with me and I in turn share that love with others through service. I share love through helping animals in need.
Each time Lindsi Jones Photography covers a wedding a donation is made to the Miss Kitty Feline Sanctuary and South Georgia Low Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic located in Thomasville, Georgia. This amazing organization changes the lives of dogs, cats, and humans in South Georgia and North Florida by offering affordable spay and neuter services and by sheltering and fostering 100s of cats each year.
As a lover of cats, I wanted to do more for the feline community, so I started the Cats in Bowties Project. This project has involved 100s of hours of work a devotion by many people to whom I will be enterally grateful. From crafting bowties, arranging the shelter schedule, and handling cats many people have been a part of the series. In 2015 I photographed 101 cats and we created an adoption event and art show “101 Cats in Bowties – An exhibition of feline portraits” which featured portraits of each cat with their name and adoption status. Many of the cats from the series went on the be adopted.
The series has been shared around the world and the world wide web through multiple online articles, magazines, and Instagram. . I am proud to share with you this amazing behind the scenes film made by Damian Grey of Revo Media.
