National Kids and Pets Day – Photographer tries herding kittens for family photo

TODAY is National Kids and Pets Day – and what better way to celebrate than with this clip of a photographer literally trying to herd cats?

The day was created in 2005 as a way of celebrating both children and pets – and the special role they play in our lives.

Anyone with fur babies will understand they can be just as difficult to control as children, and as this clip shows, owner Evgeny Mishukov had his work cut out for him.

He was trying to line up his kittens for a photo but they had no interest, moving in all directions.

Evgeny grabs each one in the clip and tries to get them to stay – but ultimately it proves to be a bridge too far.
