(NEW YORK) -- These kitties are ready for their close-up.
Retro glamour photos were taken of the cats at Chesapeake Humane Society in Virginia to boost their chance of being adopted.
The results are absolutely purr-fect.
“We were talking about different ways to get the cats noticed this week,” Michelle Dumas, the Humane Society’s volunteer and marketing coordinator, told ABC News. “This year we decided we wanted to something a little quirky to get some attention. We all started talking and it just kind of snowballed from there.”
The organization was inspired to do the photos in honor of Homeless Animal Awareness week.
“We Google-imaged for some interesting backgrounds and had those set up in the meantime,” executive director Deborrah Grulke said of the hilarious laser beams, sparkle bursts and graffiti-covered walls.
Teresa Stephens, the organization's outreach and events coordinator, took the furry feline’s portraits with staff members and now they’re going viral after being posted to Facebook. One cat has already been adopted as a result of the quirky photo shoot.
“The inspiration for the photos was family photos gone wrong,” said Grulke. “We really did it for fun. We knew we needed a hook to get people to start sharing them and the end result was definitely what we were going for.”
The Humane Society already has plans for more crazy photo shoots in the near future.
