    Davidson's newest book, Shake Cats is a spin off of her previous photo series Shake and Shake Puppies. Shake Cats captures cats cleaning or drying themselves off mid-shake, producing some pretty hilarious results. You can purchase the ridiculously photogenic cat series here.

    Most of the cats photographed are from Portland, OR, or from nearby rescues.

    Before capturing the comical shake photo, Davidson would help groom the felines and take a nice headshot for the rescue to post on their website. Just like that, almost all the cats were adopted immediately!

    Yushi is Carli's cat. She is also on the case cover of the book, under the jacket. Davidson tells BuzzFeed that Yushi threatened to pee on Carli's shoes if she didn’t get to star on the cover.

    Big Ben may have drooled a lot due to his lack of front teeth, Davidson tells BuzzFeed, but he was still adopted a week after his photo was taken!
