Kitty earning its own cat food with photography career

Thursday, 5th May 2011

A three-legged kitty from Plymouth has been earning its own cat food after becoming a recognised photographer in France.

Nancy Bean, a six-year-old feline who lost her leg after being hit by a car, took pictures as part of her owner's month long project for his architecture degree, reports

Christian Allen, 27, explained that Nancy had the camera strapped to her just under her chin for a few hours each day.

He told the news provider: "It was set to take pictures automatically every couple of minutes - so there were hundreds of photos a day.

"They were views of whatever Nancy came across in her travels - inside and out.

"The photos she took are very varied. I managed to whittle them down to 55 for my university project."

Nancy's pics will be featured in the Rencontres d'Arles - a world renowned week long exhibition that is attended by thousands of people.
