This pet owner got the ultimate family portrait ahead of the holidays! Kathy Smith of Corwen, Wales, has 17 adorable dogs and cats — and she managed to get all of them to sit together long enough to snap a heartwarming photo of the clan.
“I was so thrilled when I realized I’d captured this photoshot — it’s like a little family photo,” Smith, 30, told the Daily Mail.
However, it was no easy feat. Smith, who is a shop assistant, said it took multiple takes to get the photoshot and that she was chasing her pets around the house with treats to get them all in one spot for the few seconds she had to take the photo.
She said that while the dogs would usually sit still with the treat, her cats were much harder to pose. “I now know the real meaning behind herding cats,” she told the outlet.
“I had to just keep picking them up and putting them back until they stayed.” “It took about three attempts but in the end I managed to keep them there for a couple of seconds and get the photo before they were off again,” Smith added.
“We live in quite a chaotic house but you get used to it.”
