Sigh…the photoshop kitty version is better!
Who the hell would pay $60 for a blurry photo?
Just what I always wanted…a blurry picture of someone else’s cat with a nasty ass tennis ball with a backdrop of some nasty ass wood paneling….and for $60 bucks- what a steal.
omg, i love the clone kitty! hahahaha!!
so this chick wants 60 bucks for a poorly taken digital photo? well, the prices are as follows:
but 30 bucks for a 5×7 print? what cat nip is she smoking? the cat IS cute though
This is so bad that its kind of cool… the person selling it didn’t mean for it to be cool though.
and they’re selling it for too much
and I like the second version better
Blurry cat is blurry.
am i blind ’cause i don’t see any stairs? looks like it’s running into a wall, not down stairs?
FINALLY! I can pretend I have a kitty! (And some ratty ass carpet too!) Sweet!!
“I have 30 years experience taking photos. I also offer photo art projects for display.”
That’s 30 years of YOUR life I’d like given back to you.

WTF!… They got balls alright…
with this one, all i notice are the dead brown leaves- it’s called cropping and photo enhancing…aka photoshop?
Is this supposed to be a fine art print? FAIL.
what the fuckety fuck jesus christ superstar on a rubber crutch. I want whatever they took to induce these visions of grandeur.
“I have 30 years experience taking photos.”
That’s like saying you have 30 yrs. experience breathing–because kitten photos take themselves:
how about this one in her infamous blackberries series…the description is priceless-
“Blackberries Before The Storm: This photograph taken of the berries while still green just before a summer storm hit’s the land. These berries tremble in fear of the blustering winds and strikes of lighting about to come.”
I didn’t know blackberries had feelings…
This made my 16 year old daughter blurt out: “What the FUC- I mean, heck! What the heck?”
I don’t think I would have called her out on dropping the F-word here.
Seriously! $60 for someone else’s cat circa 1976!
And what I completely don’t understand is why on earth they even listed this– the rest of their work is not half bad.
One day last summer my then two year took a dump on the patio. While I was in the house getting cleaning supplies her big sister thought it would be cool to “decorate” it. She adorned it with cucumber chunks so it would look nice. At the time I couldn’t bring myself to take a picture, funny (and gross) as it was. I’m kicking myself now. It could have been featured on Regretsy.
I love kitties running with big toys, but this photo captures none of the charm.
#18 sudabaki — to hell with Regretsy, you could have charged $60 for it!
#16 Patty- “Seriously! $60 for someone else’s cat circa 1976!”
i just giggled out loud, thanks for that
Wow! I can sell my bad photos for $60?? Why didn’t I know this before!
#15 Truth be known, they only tremble in fear of poor lighting and a lazy composition. But perhaps she could write descriptions for my crap photos…maybe they would sell?
None of the photos in her shop are worth the ridiculous prices she has listed! And why would I want this blurry crappy pic at ANY price? Does it possess magical powers or something? I would cry if I had wasted 30 years of my life on a craft I could never do half-way decently.
I wish I had a nice rug and curtains like that so I could sell pics of my mice but instead I have to trap them with sticky paper and sell them to the pet store ’cause my rug is too dirty for looking at but it works pretty good for mice ’cause there’s bits of stuff that they like and it’s like a treat for them and a special surprise like the last supper but not with Jesus or anything ’cause he wouldn’t like the dirty rug I think.
#13 TackledAndShackled — If you get some of that, would you share? It might help with my lack of art appreciation ability.
I thought genetic manipulation was illegal. How else does she plan on taking a small kitten and changing its size? What happens if she slips?
this listing is making me angry
Pictures my 3 year old takes of her stuffed animals are better quality and more interesting than this. I seriously can’t….Though with competition like this I almost wish I were a photographer.
Um, here’s the thing. The picture isn’t watermarked so what’s to stop someone who wants this (not that I can conceive of anybody wanting this) from just downloading it and printing it out?
The kitten is attempting to use the ball as a tool to breach the paneling in the corner of the shack, thus enabling his escape. He was WAY smarter than the seller.
So she can get on Regretsy!
@ #30 – Taste.
Wait. I can sell blurry snaps of my cats for $60? HELL YEAH!
@ #32 I knew someone would be in denial, so I left the date in the screen cap.
““I have 30 years experience taking photos.”
So? My mom has 62 years of photo-taking experience… and hers are still crap, too.
The second version is way better. At least it’s more in focus. But then, it does look like it’s standing in front of a cross draped in some cloth.
Wait a minute – FREAKING NINE dollars to ship? Ohhhh I get it….$69 even the ‘artist’ knows they are fucking you.
It would appear that just like the cake, the stairs are a lie.
It would also appear that like Whitney Houston, the artist is on crack.
In those times,while Egyptians were building pyramids…my photography skills were Pretty good…preety…preety…preety good!Sorry Larry David!
#27 Bemused :
What I meant to say was: #14 TackledAndShackled : If you get some of that, would you share? It might help with my lack of art appreciation ability. I was responding to #14, not #13. I do not talk to myself. Usually.
It’s genius! It’s like a LOLcat, except that you provide your own LOL! I don’t see why no one has thought of it before!!!11!
Now it’s worth $60
Does that mean I can sell this?
Some of her other stuff isn’t bad, but I just don’t see it as more than stock…
Where the fuck was this photo taken? The Unabomber’s shack?
Awful. Just awful.
And I am getting a sore throat from all the dust, the frayed carpet edges, the crappy drapes, and the knotted wood – I can just smell this place. eeeuuuwwww
For $60, I expect a photograph entitled “My Ball” to involve a very buff naked guy short one testicle. Also, it must be poster-sized and in focus.
At first glance, the cat appeared to be trying to take a dump.
Or maybe it’s just that the photograph so perfectly captures the essence of crap.
lemming my cat looks just like that
Oh my god! Photoshop Cat ate that little kitten!
All I know is that for this kind of photography
I would get a C- and a disappointed teacher
waaaay back in a day at Art school..
Shit, I’ll tell you what. For $100.00 and you pay for airfare, I’ll fly over to your neck of the woods, come to your house, duck tape a ball to it’s head, and toss it down the stairs, shooting it (with a camera) in mid air. I’ll guarantee it won’t be blurry.
I’ll even include a matte.
I love cats.
Okay, not disclosed in profile, but it has “Dragon” in the name. Like that really “amazing” cat photoshopper/ website designer. And also boasting all that experience…
Me thinks it’s the same person?! PLEASE tell me it is so. I cannot live in a world where there are multiple crappy “designers” trying to peddle their shit for inflated prices…
#43 sudabaki – the cat’s not the only one talking out of their ass in that shop…
Just as the crappy beaded jewellery on Etsy gives real beaders a bad name, this seller is one of the people responsible for giving photographers a bad name. There are AMAZING photographers on Etsy, whose work is totally worth it, but this person …
And $12 to ship outside the US? No way, sweetie.
Do people seriously buy crappy pictures off etsy? Hell. I can take pics, in focus even! Maybe I should put some pics up of my cute kittehs and see if they can start paying for their own litter.
# 3 NinjaGato- you took the words right out of my mouth. Hey Helen- I’m glad you left the date on that link because I would be in denial as well. Yikes!!!
Ugh. Reminds me of a friend who bought an expensive camera and took random blurry snapshots (purposefully, while shaking the camera) and called herself a “professional photographer”.
I can’t buy a scalpel and start cutting people and call it surgical experience, you can’t count 30 yrs of this as “photography experience”.
This HAS to be deliberate. The date means nothing. I;ve actually listed items, thought the better of it the following month, and RECYCLED my listing by changing everything in it for a new item.
Date-shmate. This is on purpose.
The photography is just bad. This crapstatic pieces is the worst. And while #59 makes a valid point, I’m going to assume this person didn’t create this for regretsy fodder and just say WTF at the prices. I can give you 4 or 5 etsy photographers who are really good and for $30-35 you can get an 8×10.
#58 Yes–that is very typical when somebody shells out $1000+ for a camera; they assume the result is “professional”—even random, careless photos. Somehow my comments are disappearing, but I wanted to contrast two examples of photographic work, the careless versus the focused:
Disposable camera experience more like it. Throw the freakin camera away and concentrate on another artistic avenue. please.
If stars fall in the forest and you cut them off in your photo can anyone hear them? Or for that matter see them?
I’ve had 30 years of photo experience too. It started with my first 110 in 1979. I had pictures of my dog taking a crap. Maybe I should post it for sale on Etsy. maybe then I will get on Regretsy.
ok, I don’t mean to brag, but seriously. My two year old takes better pictures than this. You want proof?
#64–lol, nice! I’d say that rabbit > cat w/ball
I can haz photography lessons?
Just. Sweet mother of mercy. WTF.
Love the rabbit! PS out the bits of lint on the rug and you’ve got yourself a professional there. Very nice!
#61 — great contrasting examples, there.
Also note that the gorgeous in focus photo is $22 for an 8×8 print.
The crappy photo is $65 for an 8×10. Someone needs a reality check, I think
I’d rather pay for clone kitty.
That said, the rest of the shop has some pretty decent shots. Clean backgrounds and in focus. I think I smell a set-up…
“I have 30 years experience taking photos.” With what? The Fisher Price camera you got for your 5th birthday? Pushing the button does not a photographer make.
#70, the shots in the rest of the shop are pretty poor, too. If it’s a setup, then the whole shot is in on the game.
The photos are definitely not the quality I’d expect from someone with “30 years of experience taking photos” (hell, they aren’t the quality I’d expect from someone with *one month* of serious photography training!). It looks like they are just using a regular old point-and-shoot, too. No attention to detail, focus or composition.
GAH…I meant “the whole SHOP is in on the game.” Not shot. Grr. I need coffee.
Wow, I think she needs to contact that photo manip. seller and have some Level 32 ‘shopping done on her work.
Also, #59 I’m quite sure that’s against the rules. You are such a rebel
#51–they were artficially inflating grades way back then? Wow. Cuz if this were 1974 and I was a photography teacher for an intro to photography class at a (bad) community college this would NOT get a C- Cat photo Fail
