For my Birthday in 2004) Carol bought me a day photographing some very attractive cats. The cats in question are a pretty amazing private collection of the leopard family near Old Welwyn, Hertfordshire. There are cages but some 4″ x 4″ inch (100 cm x 100 cm for the metrically minded) holes are provided for camera lenses. These are best not used for fingers.
Naturally there is much clicking of shutters and a lot of duds but below is a selection of the presentable ones. (The tigers below are interlopers from Whipsnade Zoo but this seemed the most appropriate place for them.)
These, BTW, are scanned in from real film, Fuji Velvia to be precise, before the days of DSLRs.
