Hilarious Pet Photographs from a Century Ago

These hilarious photographs, believed to date back to 1914, Taken by American snapper Harry Whittier Frees they suggest he may have actually been one of the pioneers of the ‘LOLcat’ phenomenon – rather than the millennial generation. Frees used his own cats, Rags and Fluff, as well as the pets of his friends and neighbours

Frees created the scenes of these funny photographs by dressing up adorable animals with clothes handmade by his mother and tiny props that look like they belong in a dollhouse. Not sure why he tried to do that, probably the same reason as we feel inexplicably hilarious about seeing cats drinking tea or riding a choo-choo train together. After all thoes preparation, he just need to be patient, waiting for the right moment happens then capture the shot. Frees said, “These unusual photographs of real animals were made possible only by patient, unfailing kindness on the part of the photographer at all times.”
