Meet CJ!

Domestic Shorthair
Hampshire, South East

CJ the Ginger Tabby is an incredibly talented Domestic Shorthair cat for hire. This experienced cat has a wealth of on-set training. Moreover, he has experience in both professional shoots as well as being on set for TV commercials. Additionally, this highly trained cat actor eagerly aims to please his handler.

Experienced in stills photography and film, CJ is calm, chilled out and a dream to work with. Due to living with two other cats, (PJ and TJ, also signed to Urban Paws UK), CJ is very well-socialised. However, his handler would prefer that he only work with felines from his own household. CJ also lives with seven dogs and is therefore happy to work with canines. This sociable cat is happy to work with actors and actresses, as well as children.

Additionally, sporting beautiful ginger tabby markings and captivating amber eyes, CJ embodies a stunning cat model that resonates with most cat households. Furthermore, this exceptional quality positions him as an ideal choice for a diverse array of brands, products, and services, particularly those centred around home, family, and lifestyle in marketing campaigns.
