Photographer Felicity Berkleef was onto something when she first captured her cat sitting at a dreary window. Late last year, she snapped a sweet picture of the furry friend looking at the world while wrapped in a blanket. A couple of months ago, the other cat joined in and Berkleef tried to repeat success with another cloak. It worked! And according to the 21-year-old: “They didn’t mind.” Berkleef explains, “From that moment I decided to photograph my cats in front of the window, whenever it’s raining.”
The precipitation and window set a stage for these photographs. It’s a place where Berkleef’s cats—named Nero and Tommie—showcase their various roles in the relationship. Sometimes, they’re loving towards one another, while in other instances, there’s gentle tussling. But, the two never play just one part. Against the backdrop of water droplets and dreamy cityscape is a nuanced portrait of these creatures.
