Meet CJ!

Domestic Shorthair
Hampshire, South East

Ginger tabby, CJ, is an incredibly talented domestic shorthair cat for hire. This trained cat is a very experienced onset and has worked in photography studios as well as being filmed for TV commercials.  Cat actor, CJ, is highly trained and keen to please his handler.

Experienced in stills photography as well as film, CJ is calm and chilled out and a dream to work with. Because CJ lives with two other cats, (PJ and TJ, also signed to Urban Paws UK) he’s very well socialised. However, his handler would prefer that he only works with felines from his own household. CJ also lives with seven dogs and so is able to work with canines.  He is happy to work with actors and actresses, as well as children.

With beautiful ginger tabby markings and amber eyes, CJ is a stunning cat model that is relatable to most cat households.  This makes him suitable for a wide variety of brands, products, and services.  He will particularly suit marketing campaigns surrounding the home, family, and lifestyle.
