Meet Derek!

Domestic Long Haired
Derbyshire, East Midlands

Meet Derek, the handsome Semi Long Haired cat model, animal actor, and show cat. This beautiful boy looks divine with his red coat and adorable features. His distinctive eyes and handsome facial structure have made him a consistently popular show cat. He’s a mischievous lad by nature, but through excellent training he knows the difference between work time and playtime.

Clients just love his laid-back personality and calm demeanor that both comforts and relaxes. Lovely Derek is now ready to take that show training and join the world of animal talent as a working cat. He boasts impressive obedience training that will surely make him an asset to any film, television, or advertising production.

True to his breed, Derek is an easy-going chap who is unfazed by the hustle and bustle of show (or studio) life. He’s an excellent cat model as clients will find him easy to position. Derek is happy to be picked up without a fuss, making him perfect for high-profile fashion shoots that require a stunning cat model to sit or be held for long periods of time. He is fine with noisy and busy crowds and is thus the perfect bit of animal talent to star in pet photography-led shoots.
