  • Jesus Segura was unemployed when his cat, Napoleon, came into his life. Segura was inspired by Napoleon’s expressive faces and wanted to put the kitty in surreal situations.

  • "Napoleon is neither an object nor a toy, he is only a kitten,"Segura says in his bio. "Therefore we have laid down a number of rules. He never spends more than 15 minutes in front of the camera, because I think that’s enough time for him, otherwise he gets bored and wants to escape from the set or starts to play and dismantle everything. I tried to turn each photographic session into a game for him."

  • "When the stage is set, I don’t let Napoleon be on it until everything is ready for shooting," Segura added. “I do that because the first reactions of him, being in a place where he’s never been before, are always funny and useful. We use sounds or little toys in order to get his eyes looking at the right place, but that’s not as simple as it seems. And of course, I've always respected his eating and sleeping times, just like any star deserves."
