The images were taken by dropping the cats from a small height and shooting them from below just before they landed on a foam mat, to prevent injury.

“Some people thought we had used a trampoline or thrown the cats from from a great height or even tortured them somehow. None of that is true! The cats are dropped from a very small height onto a foam mat. There is a making of the film which shows the photoshoot,” she said.
