Chicago Buzz Has Started

Cooper ships his exhibitLast week we shipped Cooper’s photo exhibit on to it’s next great location. This morning we flew to Chicago for the opening of his new six month exhibit! It takes place at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum in Chicago, in conjunction with the National Geographic Crittercam exhibit.

Last night was a special cocktail reception at the Museum to unveil the new exhibits. It was so great to meet our friends from local no-kill shelters PAWS Chicago and Tree House Cat Shelter. If anyone in the Chicago area is thinking about adopting a cat, these are both wonderful organizations.  Cooper is donating a portion of all sales from now until the show closes in April to PAWS Chicago to help spay and neuter other stray cats and find them loving forever homes like his.

The exhibit officially opens this Saturday, September 26th. We are in town for the whole weekend and look forward to meeting Cooper’s fans!

Talk about town has already begun. The buzz about Cooper’s photography is hot! Chicago’s ABC News mentions Cooper in a story yesterday.

Come meet us this weekend at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum in Chicago!

RSVP on Facebook (and also see updated news spots as we find out about them.)

Happy Birthday Cooper!

Make a wish!Today is Cooper’s 4th Birthday! To celebrate, Cooper not only gets this fun new website revamp, but also a special meal which he very patiently waited for us to get a good photo of. What a good boy!
It’s been a tremendous year for Cooper – starting with Animal Planet shortly after his birthday last September all the way through to our brand new friends we’ve met on Facebook and the blog, we’ve been so impressed with the outpouring of love and support for him. I would say he’s been taking it all in stride. His photography work continues to surprise and amaze us and his disposition couldn’t be sunnier.

We asked him what he wanted for his birthday and he was strangely silent on the subject. So, he ended up getting some “shrimp brittle” from the natural pet food store and a hand made catnip carrot. Though I should mention that he discovered where we were hiding his presents on Monday and ran outside with the carrot before we could catch him.

Dig in little dude, you deserve it!

Eat up little dude, you deserve it!

Cooper in Stealth Mode

IMG_3514_2It’s been nearly two years now that Cooper has been shooting photographs on his trips around the neighborhood. A lot of people ask us about what we’ve seen that surprises us. The biggest surprise is that we haven’t seen any photos of birds or squirrels! We imagine that some day that Cooper may come home with evidence that helps the Seattle Police Department crack a big case they’re working on (maybe capturing a cat burglar)… but that hasn’t happened yet either. But we have seen some interesting peeks into the lives of our neighbors.
